How CDB Can Help You Avoid Dangerous Pain Killers
The United States is in the grip of an opioid epidemic. According to the CDC, nearly 400,000 people have died from opioid overdoses between 1999-2017 — which averages out to nearly 130 deaths per day.
The problem can be traced to a rise in the number of prescriptions written for opioids over the last two decades. During this time, many Americans have found themselves caught in the vice grip of addiction with no way out. As their legal prescriptions run out, many people have turned to buying these medications illegally or turning to drugs like heroin and fentanyl. As we have seen, what started as a way of treating pain can quickly become a crippling problem.

CBD Has Been Shown to Reduce Pain
One study showed that CBD has a wide range of potentially therapeutic uses, including pain reduction. The same study showed that pain that was resistant to other methods of treatment was responsive to treatment with CBD. This is incredibly important for anyone who has been dealing with pain for a long time that cannot be controlled by other kinds of pain reduction.
CBD Does Not Have the Addictive Properties of Opioids
According to a World Health Organization study, CBD has not been shown to be addictive, nor does it appear to have any potential for abuse. This is great news for people who suffer from chronic pain, as it allows them to manage their pain without worrying about becoming addicted to a problematic substance.
This lack of addictive properties also means that if you decide to try treating your pain with CBD, when you stop, you will not face any of the negative consequences of withdrawal.
CBD May Help Treat People Addicted to Opioids
Early data from several studies suggest that CBD may work as a potential treatment for a wide range of addictions, including opioids. In time, CBD may become a vital part of detox and recovery programs for people who need to treat both their pain and their addictions.
In addition to the promising effects that have been observed in regards to addiction treatment, CBD can also help people with some of the other mental issues that come with addiction, including anxiety and depression.
