Is CBD oil addictive? What we know and what we don’t

We get many questions from visitors, and one of them is continuously recurring: Is CBD oil addictive? The short answer is no, at the moment.

An addictive disorder is an acquired, chronic change in the brain's reward system where memories of the experiences that caused the addiction are stored. Today, addiction to cigarettes, alcohol, drugs, tablets, and games is classified as an addictive disorder.​

There are currently no reports of any overdose of CBD, although high doses of CBD can create unwanted side effects. A 2011 study shows that 1500mg of CBD daily does not pose any direct health risks. Another study from 2016 reported a similar result. High-quality CBD oil is not considered addictive, according to WHO, and the substance appears to be safe and easy for the human body to absorb and manage. 

So far, of the studies and research conducted, CBD oil shows no impact linked to having an addictive effect.

It may be too early to give an answer that is 100% correct on this question, but for the moment, the answer is no.

CBD and THC

THC may have connections to be addictive

Many people confuse CBD with THC, which is wrong since the latter substance found in the marijuana plant is the substance that gives the direct feeling of being “high”. THC has connections to addictive but not CBD.

This is because THC is a psychoactive cannabinoid that binds the CB1 and CB2 receptors and makes you feel the intoxicating effect that gives the feeling of:

Euphoria, “time and space” can feel changed, you may find it difficult to know how long it has been.
Your senses, such as the sense of smell, sight, taste, are enhanced.
Disorientation (you may feel confused).
Appetite Stimulation. (you may feel extra hungry).

Overconsumption of THC can lead to psychosis

In the case of overconsumption of THC, you may also feel anxiety and unrest, which in the worst case, can lead to psychosis.

The products we recommend have NO or extremely low (within the legal limit) content of THC.

CBD produces no such psychotic effects at all. On the contrary, CBD has an antipsychotic effect and can instead relieve, among other things, anxiety, stress, and psychoses.

An imbalance can make you feel bad

The body itself is dependent on the endocannabinoid system being in balance, and coming out of balance, one can feel terrible. So with all the minerals and vitamins, an imbalance and lack of body make you feel bad.

It can be compared to a car engine that has no engine oil, the engine scrapes, slits, and eventually, it breaks. The endocannabinoid system is one of the most important things we have in our bodies.To replenish and “lubricate” their receptors in the endocannabinoid system, CBD oil can be consumed morning and evening, thus providing a well-functioning, harmonious, and balanced system.

Is CBD oil addictive – the conclusion

The conclusion is that from the beginning the body is dependent on the endocannabinoid system being in balance, you have an imbalance there, then you are indirectly dependent on restoring that balance with some supplementation, this is where CBD oil comes into the picture

So yes, the body is dependent on CBD (cannabinoids) if one is to be stingy. But not necessarily dependent on CBD oil.
