Prescription CBD is safe for daily use in treating cannabis use disorder, according to a new trial published in The Lancet Psychiatry journal. The trial is the first of its kind to suggest that CBD – a major active compound found in the cannabis plant – can be used to treat cannabis addiction.

The double-blind, randomised, controlled trial was carried out over four weeks with 82 participants with a cannabis use disorder. All 82 people had been diagnosed with a cannabis use disorder of at least moderate severity, and had all expressed a desire to quit within the next month, and had tried to quit on at least one occasion before.
