CBD Oil for Quitting Tobacco

CBD used to Quit Smoking

Do You Want to Quit Smoking?

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), an estimated 14% of Americans over the age of 18 — which translates to 34.3 million people — smoke cigarettes, and over 8 million use smokeless tobacco. Tobacco use is the number one preventable cause of death and one of the hardest addictions for consumers to quit. If you are interested in learning more.

Addiction to Nicotine

To combat tobacco addiction, Big Pharma has responded with nicotine patches, pharmaceuticals, nicotine gum, and other smoking cessation devices. But most of these smoking cessation protocols, or “solutions” still leave the consumer with an addiction to nicotine — the highly addictive substance found in all tobacco products. While nicotine is naturally occurring in vegetables and our bodies and isn’t the primary cause of tobacco-related health problems, nicotine is incredibly addictive and will lead to serious withdrawal symptoms.

Smoking can lead to lung cancer, heart disease, strokes, and a multitude of other deadly health conditions. It is the most preventable cause of death in the United States. We all know the risks; it’s on all of the labels and common sense dictates that smoking couldn’t possibly be a good idea!

Despite all the risks, quitting tobacco is a very difficult thing to accomplish. Tobacco use causes a temporary feeling of relaxation, calm, and sometimes a mild buzz. Immediately following this brief euphoria are withdrawal symptoms.

Some of the more common nicotine withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Headache
  • Intense Cravings
  • Sore throat
  • Constipation
  • Insomnia
  • Nausea and abdominal cramping
  • Hunger
  • Depressive feelings
  • Slowed heart rate
  • Restlessness
  • Thinking problems

In addition to the physical withdrawal symptoms, the psychological symptoms of nicotine withdrawal include:

  • Low mood
  • A strong desire or craving for nicotine
  • Irritability or frustration
  • Difficulty concentrating and anxiety
  • Increased stress and mood swings

 

Managing these nicotine withdrawal symptoms is one of the keys to a successful smoking cessation plan.

So, what can be used as part of a Quit Smoking or Quit Chewing plan?  

Understanding how tobacco addiction happens is important to understanding what a good solution looks like. Unfortunately, pharmacological solutions — or nicotine replacement therapy such as nicotine gum or patches — produce extremely low tobacco cessation success rates. One of the theories behind this difficulty is the habitual nature of tobacco use, in addition to the actual addiction.

Think about it. What do you think happens when you do something 20 to 40 times a day for 10 to 20 years?  It would probably be extremely hard to quit that habit, wouldn’t you agree? The more ingrained a habit is in the human brain, the more difficult it is to change that habit.

Research

Let’s take a look at some of the research being done on CBD and its connection to smoking cessation.

One such study focused on smokers who wanted to quit. The research is telling, and it doesn’t take long to find many other studies that support similar results.

CB1 receptors are primarily found on nerve cells in the spinal cord and brain. Cannabinoids have been found to react with receptors.

Research & Studies on Products that help to Quit Smoking

Another study involving substances that help you quit smoking came out of the UK in May 2018. This study examined a variety of potential positive effects of CBD on smoking behavior. This double-blind, randomized study was comprised of 30 dependent smokers. Each of the smokers was given 800mg of CBD orally or a matched placebo. Dr. Amir Englund at King’s College, London commented on this study in an article found here: iNews UK.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-intoxicating compound found in marijuana and industrial hemp.

      We have scanned our records and don’t find any record that you placed an order on our website.

    I’m trying to quit smoking what is the name of the CBD oil that can help me quit

  4. Is this legal to take? Will it show up on a drug test? I want to quit and this would benefit me in so many ways.

    1. cannafyl.admin says:

      Hi Donna, Yes, our products are 100% legal! Taking a full spectrum CBD means you are taking the whole plant which does include a very small amount of THC, well below the legal limit for hemp products but it is there and could possibly show up on a drug test. If you are feeling like maybe you would like to try a Broad Spectrum CBD which is THC Free, please give us a call at the store 480-599-1003 where we carry those items as well.

  6. Kelly Marvin says:

    You some about using an inhaler and the cbd. Do you have an inhaled version other than vaping to try and break the hand to mouth part of smoking?

    1. cannafyl.admin says:

      Hi Kelly,

      Unfortunately, a vape cartridge is the only product we carry to help with the hand to mouth habit.

      1. cannafyl.admin says:

        Hi JoDee,
        Thank you for this great question. The cost with of the Balance 1000mg CBD Oil and the Cannafyl 500mg Cartridge is $159.90. These two products together are designed to last approximately 30 days. Another great tip is Cannafyl will have all of their products on sale for 20% off starting Wednesday December 16th through Monday, December 21st! Thank you for contacting us! Have a great CBD day!

    I am a beginner with CBD products. Have smoked for over 30 years, would like to finally quit. What product do you suggest I start with, and the dosage? I am also glad this is a Veteran owned company. My husband was a veteran, (he just passed away) and we try to support Veteran owned products

  9. Chandra says:

    My my name is Chandra I order a bottle of Dr.Golden’s CBD 300mg 99 0/0 pure Full Spetrum Hemp oil thc free and I been smoking for 12 years but I haven’t took it yet !! Will it help me stop smoking cigarettes and help me to start getting my weight back up and my eating and does it also help with my lower back pain from time to time but my main thing is to stop smoking

    1. cannafyl.admin says:

      Hi Chandra, Thank you for this great question. I have looked into Dr. Golden’s CBD and was unable to confirm that this product is a full spectrum CBD. I also was unable to locate any test results to validate the product. During your first few weeks of nicotine withdrawal, you will experience irritability, brain fog, sleeplessness and anxiety which can be difficult to overcome. Take your CBD daily, twice daily is best as CBD only stays in your body for 6 to 8 hours. Try it for 30 days and see if it is helping with those issues, if not you might need to move your milligrams up and possibly get a CBD vape cartridge to help with the hand-to-mouth habit that you have formed over the past 12 years. Lastly, be kind to yourself while trying to quit smoking, frequently remind yourself that you are going to feel fantastic after you have accomplished this great task! Always feel free to give us a call if you have any further questions.

  10. Wanda Lester says:

    Please I want to stop smoking I see so many products…but they are really high what does this product cost?

    1. cannafyl.admin says:

      Hi Wanda,
      Great question! Quitting smoking can be very difficult depending on your level of addiction to nicotine. The first month will most likely be the hardest. Our 30ml bottle is designed to be a 30 day plan if you are taking 1 full dropper daily. That might be all you need to get over those initial withdrawal symptoms. Good Luck Wanda in your journey to overcome your addiction to nicotine. You can always call us at 480-599-1003 if you have any further questions.

  11. Brian says:

    Hi I’m a commercial driver if I was to use cbd to quit smoking and for some reason I was drug tested by my employer or the department of transportation will they see it

    1. cannafyl.admin says:

      Hello, If you are using a Full Spectrum CBD product, then yes, you could test positive for the small amount of THC that is in a full spectrum. We would suggest that you move to an Isolate CBD with no THC. In the Cannafyl Retail store, we carry TruInfusionCBD which is a very good Isolate CBD. If you are interested, please call us at the store 480-599-1003 and we can help you pick the right bottle for your needs. Best of luck!

  12. Donn says:

    I have smoked off and on for 50 years and with Covid shit in took it back up. Will this help me and can I actually get help

    1. cannafyl.admin says:

      Hello Don,

      We suggest the Balance 1000mg along with the Cannafyl 500mg Cartridge. Since you have been smoking for so long you have formed two habits that will be difficult to overcome. As noted in our blog, the withdrawal symptoms from nicotine such as insomnia, brain fog, irritability and anxiety can be quite difficult to overcome. The Cannafyl Balance was formulated with not only high quality CBD, but also a special blend of terpenes, and the Peppermint essential oils making it a top quality CBD. Please note that the Cannafyl Cartridge is only available in our Phoenix location store, please call us at 480-599-1003 if you are interested. All Shipping is Free! Please also remember to be kind to yourself during your withdrawal period, it might be difficult but you can do it with a little help.

  16. Rafi says:

    Hi there
    I have quite for 3 years but still having the cravings like it’s yesterday, I am afraid to buy CBD product and then be addicted to CBD , because marijuana is addictive as well , what can you recommend thanks .

    1. cannafyl.admin says:

      Hi Rafi, Congratulations for making it 3 years! CBD and marijuana are two different products, CBD comes from the Hemp plant and is not addictive, marijuana on the other hand is addictive but is not in the hemp family. Thanks for the great question!

  17. Robert Mills says:

    Don’t want to vape, what do you have for those that dip snuff?

    1. cannafyl.admin says:

      Hi Robert,

      Since you did not develop the hand to mouth habit you probably would not need the vape cartridge. We would suggest a good quality full spectrum CBD Oil with your milligrams ranging between 30-50 milligrams each dose.

  18. Monique says:

    What are the chances that you ship to Canada??

    1. cannafyl.admin says:

      Hi Monique,
      Unfortunately we are unable to ship to Canada at this time. Best of luck!

  19. Bruce A Plumley says:

    I have been smoking for 50 years and want to quit asap..As I have copd but I am on social security and can’t afford the 159.95 does insurance help to cover the costs for any of this…

    1. cannafyl.admin says:

      Hi Bruce,
      Unfortunately insurance does not cover CBD at this time. Best of luck!

  20. Liz Breier says:

    Do you know where I can get this product in Canada. This is the second time I have t tried to order it but they don’t ship to Canada. I have COPD and I am desperate?

    1. cannafyl.admin says:

      Hi Liz,

      Unfortunately we do not ship to Canada. Hopefully someday this will change, in the meantime our best suggestion is to try and find a quality Full Spectrum CBD product in Canada. Best of Luck!

  21. Vickie Ridenour says:

    1. cannafyl.admin says:

      Hi Vickie, Thank you for this great question. I was able to locate the information for your gummies and the test results indicate that they are THC Free. Simply put this means you can take these gummies without worrying about testing positive for THC. Best of luck on your journey to stop smoking! Kimberly
