We have anecdotal reports of smokers who used CBD products and decreased their smoking of cigarettes as a result. However that was simply the word on the street. Now we have actual testing from the UK which resulted in a 40% decrease in smoking of cigarettes where the smokers were using CBD products. The smokers who were provided a placebo showed no decrease in smoking of cigarettes. This test was proof to support the anecdotal reports but further tests should be conducted to declare CBD victorious over nicotine.
If you are trying to quit smoking then its possible CBD can help. Try it for yourself and let us know what you find out.

Your body has an endogenous system which has been described as “an ancient lipid signaling network which in mammals modulates neuronal functions, inflammatory processes, and is involved in the etiology of certain human lifestyle diseases, such as Crohn’s disease, atherosclerosis and osteoarthritis".
