Abrupt withdrawal of cannabidiol (CBD) is not associated with physical withdrawal symptoms
The abrupt withdrawal of CBD is not associated with physical withdrawal symptoms in healthy subjects, according to a recent clinical study.
A team of researchers from the United Kingdom and the United States assessed the occurrence of withdrawal symptoms caused by the abrupt withdrawal of CBD. The subjects in the study were healthy people who took 750 mg of herbal CBD twice daily for four weeks. Study participants either continued to receive CBD or received a placebo in weeks five and six.
The researchers did not report any serious adverse events due to the discontinuation of CBD.
They concluded that healthy subjects had no evidence of withdrawal syndrome when short-term CBD treatment was abruptly discontinued.
