Smoking and Heart Health

No Smoking Sign - CBD/Hemp extract may be a potential treatment for helping people quit smoking

Cigarettes and nicotine are detrimental to your body and your heart health. Almost one third of deaths from coronary heart disease in the U.S. are attributable to smoking or secondhand smoke. Smoking is the most preventable cause of death in the country as well. 

Even if you are a smoker, there is hope! Millions of people quit smoking each year with success. Though it isn't always easy, there are many ways to quit smoking and live a healthier life! 

CBD/Hemp Extract and Smoking

A recent study in the U.K. sought to find if cannabidiol could have an impact on cigarette smoking. Among a small sample of 24 smokers, the researchers gave half of the group CBD (aka hemp extract) in an inhaler and gave the other half a placebo inhaler (no hemp extract). The smokers were instructed to use the inhaler whenever they felt the urge to smoke. Those in the group that received the placebo with no actual hemp extract did not see a reduction in daily cigarette consumption. 

However, those who did receive the hemp extract oil in the inhaler reduced their daily cigarette consumption by 40%. These findings, though the sample is small, show that there may be promise for CBD/hemp extract in reducing nicotine and cigarette consumption. The researchers suggest that hemp extract may be a potential treatment option for those wishing to quit smoking.
