I don't want to say CBD is a miracle drug, but it kind of is. The more I research CBD, and the studies being done on it, the more I am shocked by how many different ways Cannabidiol can be used to modify our endocannabinoid system for positive benefits.

Researchers have recently discovered that the endocannabinoid system and CBD are able to alter our brain's reward system which is responsible for the release of feel-good hormones like Serotonin and Dopamine.

This means is taking CBD Oil orally every day can make quitting smoking easier by reducing the memory triggers and reward hormones that make us reach for a cigarette.

But even more fascinating is this mechanism of treatment is effective on ANY addiction since our brain basically plays out rewards in the same way for things like food, drugs, sex and whatever else we manage to become addicted to. So using CBD is kind of like hacking your brain to not trigger addictive urges AND release less reward hormones which in turn should make quitting smoking, and even drugs like opioids, easier.

Dr. Mary Clifton explains CBD Oil's use in quitting smoking.

Quitting any serious addiction is no easy task. Using just CBD Oil alone is simply not enough. You need to learn what your triggers are, how to replace hand motions, and change some other habits in your life to really quit smoking. The video below gives a helpful breakdown on what you need to think about in order to form your "plan of attack" to finally kick that habit. Adding CBD Oil to this plan can only help you get there a little bit easier.

They also make CBD Gummies which could make a great CBD-infused oral replacement for your smoking habit.

Dr. Mike Evans breaks down his approach to helping his patients quit smoking.
