Can CBD Treat Opioid Addiction? | Consumer Reports

The popular cannabis compound may help some people wean off addictive pain meds, but here’s …


  1. For gods sake .. no body needs opioid tablets just buy kratom if cbd does not work. Kratom is a leave and it’s hidden from big pharma… anyone who is currently using doctor death pills as I call them. Use Kratom But even Keaton is addictive but no way on earth is kratom as bad. I use it and it helps in many ways including depression… but I am not a doctor… but cbd much better but second kratom which is an opioid leave and has saved many opioid addicts Ives including heroin addicts… look it up and ignore the propaganda… there are 37 recorded deaths of Kratom and all those had mixed it with various other drugs …. opioid pills kill millions…. you can order kratom on line but it is addictive and use it correctly… research stories and this might help … like weed the big pharma don’t want you to use natural plants because they lose trillions

  2. Answer isssss a big fucking NO lol. Cbd will not touch real opiate wd. It's a great product and will help later down the road but CBD during acute withdrawal is like taking a piss on a house fire.

  3. Its placebo. Alexander shulgin had to get a surgery once, and was given a glass of orange juice with sugar crystals on top and told it was morphine. He felt no pain and thanked the nurse, who told him it was all his own brain. He went on to create countless psychedelic and empathogenic drugs because he was so interested in this phenomenon.

  4. I’m a 31 years never miss a day but for one time could not find heroin no where I was sick for four days, I take 5-7 grams heroin day and doctors give me also 1000mg of Kadian plus 200mg methadone I do not eat solid foods for about 20 years, just liquids so from 14 years old to now and I’m 46 years old, why I’m still alive, I ask myself that all day.

  5. This sounds like a poor campaign done by big pharma trying to get into the industry and get their cut w their foot in the door…. she felt great after 30 days of taking CBD after withdrawals? It doesn’t take a scientist or researcher to tell you that you’re going to feel 100000 percent better regardless if you are taking CBD or not being sober for 30 days off of Opiates …. lmfaooo this is such a piece of HORSE ishhh!!! This video literally gave no compelling answers or data ymit’s like Big Pharma uses the same Director for every commercial campaign hahaha. I am ALL for CBD and am an advid believer but come onnn not one compelling data, study, or other/better testimonials to do CBD justice and spread real awareness. Man if I didn’t know about CBD and wasn’t an avid believer myself I would of been against this non informative prepubescent made BS you call of an ad. Nice try !!!! Pfizer we ain’t dumb now

  6. CBD, kratom and phenibut can help you kick anything! CBD actually increases the amount of opiate that is in the system and it also acts like suboxone does for benzodiazepenes (but phenibut will nuetralize and allow you to sleep). it completely stops stimulant withdrawal in its tracks.

  7. jesus christ, her severe pain with opiods is a 3 or 4?!? A good day for me on SEVERE OPIODS is a 7 or 8. STAY AWAY FROM METHADONE!! THEYRE CONCERNED WITH MONEY BUT OT ONLY NOT, IT CAN KILL U IF U USE A CPAP MACHINE AND YOU WILL NVR BE PRESCRIBED OPIATES AGAIN. My hsband started going to a clinic because we couldnt afford a pain management and him bying them off the streets almost ruined us. Once he was on Medicaid and started a pain mngt, he was stuck. his backbone was nearly ripped in half in an accident so hes not just s fiend. Guess what, he had a heart attack and isi on blood thinners which require a whole nother level just to get shots approved, Therefore, no surgeries or epidurals. We need help before he takes his or someone elses life because of the pain

  8. Just went through withdrawal…,again. I’m telling you folks: weed, kratom and if you can get it, Xanax, for restless legs and insomnia cut it all down 50%! I took a week off. Best decision of my life.

  9. All pill poppers will say they hated the high from THC because………yup, you guessed it….they don't get the speed effect! They only like the speed high, that's all! That's why they switch to Adderall! Same for meth users, they lie to Docs to make them think they have ADHD/ADD…..why you might ask? Welp its because they are after the Speed High Only!

  10. I’ve been completely stalled in my recovery from opioid addiction. I started a suboxone (later switched to generic buprenorphine tablets) treatment program 3.5 years ago and while I have been able to taper down to about 1/3 of what I used to take, I’ve hit a point at which cutting any further really exacerbates my anxiety significantly, as well as nerve pain, muscle soreness and a general sick feeling.

    I decided to order a few different cbd products which should be arriving tomorrow and my plan is to go off of my current medication entirely with the help of cbd to manage those withdrawal symptoms. With any luck, I’ll finally be able to get away from this medication.

  11. CBD and Kratom helps with addiction. I wonder why the FDA cracks down more on these natural medicines than the drug companies abusing the sales of opioids? 🤔

  12. BACK & NECK PAIN: The stigma, the results, the costs and what we as Americans should demand. This may be the most important posting you may read currently on the subject, especially about the costs.

    I was never an unlawful drug user and the stigma of Cannabis delayed my getting on board. I also did not want smoke anything. Then the Dr said, you have receptors for this and recommended I try the oils. That stigma stopped the day after I started as it works! The dispensary recommended – and I found – the CBD oil about 70% and at least 3% THC works and opioids supplement if needed at a less rate. A product called Sweet Relief is a syringe (no needle) that has premarked dose lines. Add to foods or simply take a scoop of peanut butter, open a divot pocket, Push the syringe plunger and it comes out like a honey thickness and smooth the oil inside and consume. The oil just by itself tastes bitter directly and not desired.

    Cuts pain by about 40%. What that equates to is “a percentage of your day will rely only on the cannabis”. You may find the end of the day you need opioids as well, but less. Or just one light opioid with Cannabis gets you through most of the day. The THC helps because it reduces stress. I feel more relaxed and now prefer to be pleasant. Often back pain individuals are physically guarding or compensating around an injury area. It’s frustrating holding this all day long. The Oil masks the feeling and you are not as tense. I also find the THC to charm me up “a bit” around others. Quite frankly, when you are in damn pain, you are definitely less friendly and way less tolerant to BS. Example, you get pissed faster, you are more likely to be a little jerky when you are tired and at the end of a work shift. Any help from the tiny THC is most welcome. Remember, as long as you are reasonable, you are not going to overdose, if you take a bit too much, you just get sleepy. What I am saying is don’t be a panic user. It’s not like normal prescription meds that is more rigid about dosing. One bad thing is Cannabis is slower to get to work. It may take an hour or hours to fully kick in. So if you wake up in pain, if you are in MF pain, I wait till after a shower, then take both the opioid and the Cannabis. If you are not feeling that bad, just do the Cannabis. Do not drive until you have a solid grasp on dosing times and how you react. Understand how food, rest and water are and not something to run dry on. Cycling in Antiinflammatory’s and Lyrica helps too.

    I had a back injury 27 years ago – did all the conservative method crap that never lasted – eventually had 4 surgeries over time and even in the past three years traveled to Barcelona for premium disc implants not available in the US (because the FDA panders to the big buck mega manufacturers – making it so expensive in costs and time in years to get approved). What happens is the very best outstanding implants NOT made by mega-corporations go for the CE approved so they can sell to the whole European Union 28 Countries and that CE approval is often recognized by many other Nations around the globe. So, the US is the VERY last stop on the train since they can finally afford to pay millions and added years to the US for such approval. The problem is the market in the US has too many implants with NO shock absorbing properties like a real disc and many fail to address necessary turning tension so facets don’t hyper turn and ware out faster). Fusion is a joke, it causes the disc above to wear out and years later, another stupid fusion. It’s cruel.

    THE COSTS !!!! The costs are too high. We need Walgreens and CVS to dispense, what I would call “a harmony group” of Cannabis in pill and capsule form that can be sold economically or at least under your Health Insurance. This is VERY important because I can get opioids for $10 for the month. This Oil Sweet Relief is $70 for ten – eight hour doses, so that’s $21 a day if you were using it around the clock. Not many can afford that! We need legislation to make this happen and to be vocal about this.

    The faster these costs to the user is addressed, the better these programs will be. The better we serve society and care for the people in real pain. It’s not fair to be just for the rich. Reach out to your Represetative and Congress persons – Thumbs Up?

  13. At 2:36 this lady said she tripped while carrying 180 lbs of tie-downs….c’mon…who is she fooling. I would be willing to bet it was probably HALF that weight AT BEST!!
    This makes you wonder about her CLAIMS of pain.
