CBD (Cannabidiol) derived from Cannabis has shown promise in people suffering from drug and or alcohol addiction. By relaxing the body to a calm state, hemp (cannabis) may alleviate withdrawal experienced by many drug and or alcohol addicts. Users of alcohol and other prescription drugs are searching for that “relaxing” and “calming” sensation. CBD works to combat both stress and anxiety and makes the process of quitting drugs and alcohol a lot less difficult.
