Opioid Epidemic and possible CBD Treatment for Opioid Addiction.

Opioid epidemic cost United States economy staggering 630 billion dollars in just 4 years and it is getting worse.

The biggest factor behind these numbers is:

  • criminal justice
  • commercial insurance costs
  • child welfare system
  • lost lifetime earnings
  • lost productivity
  • and medical cost borne by Medicaid and Medicare.

More than 100 people die everyday from drug overdose. The abuse of drugs and prescription pain killers created a national crisis that is negatively affecting economic welfare and public health.

What was the cause of this epidemic?

It all started in late 1990's when big pharma companies convinced the medical community that the prescription drugs such as powerful painkillers would not be addictive to their patients. This actually led the healthcare providers prescribing drugs to their patients at great rate that subsequently started widespread misuse long before they realized that these drugs were highly addictive. This naturally led to increased drug overdose nationwide.

According to CBD+ Health Boutique of Deerfield Beach CBD or Cannabidiol is receiving a lot of attention nowadays as a potential treatment for ailments such as chronic pain, epilepsy and anxiety just to mention few.
CBD comes from the similar cannabis plant just like marijuana. Unlike marijuana, it does not contain THC the psycho-active ingredient that gets you high.

New study reports that CBD might help curb the cravings for opioid addiction associated with powerful prescription drugs for anxiety and pain relief.

In the recent study participants received sublingual CBD oil or an inactive placebo. Compared to placebo, CBD oil reduced drug craving and anxiety almost immediately.

The findings indicated that the CBD oil holds significant promise for treating individuals with drug addiction.
An effective non-opioid treatment like CBD would help significantly to the existing addiction and help to reduce the enormous health care costs, catastrophic death toll resulting from this opioid epidemic.

The United States has enormous difficulty to deal with this opioid epidemic that has claimed more than 400,000 lives since its beginning.


Treatment for drug addiction usually carry a social stigma therefore millions of Americans with opioid addiction will avoid them.
This is the main reason showing the urgent need for alternative treatments, such as CBD oil.


It may be required to perform additional studies on CBD optional treatment, however the future development of CBD-based treatments for opioid addiction looks promising according to CBD+ Health Boutique of Deerfield Beach.
