Is Cannabis/CBD oil addictive?
The World Health Organization (WHO) Expert Committee on Drug Dependence (ECDD) have released a report on Cannabis extracts showing evidence that not only is CBD safe but highlighting that it isn’t addictive. The report also highlights that no public health problems, like driving under the influence, have been associated with CBD.
“In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential,” wrote the World Health Organization, a U.N. agency that focuses on public health.
Is CBD safe to consume?
CBD is safe, non-addictive and non-toxic for humans, even when consumed at high doses. It does not interact with receptors found in the brain stem, which control breathing and heart rate. There are no known serious side effects of taking too much CBD and research has concluded that extremely high doses of 1,500mg a day, are well tolerated.
The US own the patent for CBD
The US Government owns the CBD patent. You can read what they say about it on their website.
The patent report states; No signs of toxicity or serious side effects have been observed following chronic administration of cannabidiol to healthy volunteers (Cunha et al., Pharmacology 21:175-185, 1980).
CBD is not an addictive substance nor does it have any psychoactive properties, meaning people can stop taking it at anytime without any withdrawal effects.
