Addiction: What Is It And Why Isn’t CBD Addictive?

According to wikipedia: Addiction is a brain disorder characterized by compulsive engagement in rewarding stimuli despite adverse consequences.  Addiction is called a brain disorder because over a period of time, continually taking a substance can actually change the biology of the brain. 

Abuse of addictive substances disturbs the way critical structures in the brain interact to control behaviors related to drug use.

Almost all potentially-addictive substances target the brain’s dopamine-based reward system. Often called the “Happy Hormone,” dopamine produces feelings of happiness or euphoria when released in the brain. 

Substances that overstimulate this reward system, which is typically only triggered during survival events like eating or spending time with loved ones, sets in motion a pattern that teaches people to repeat the behavior. 

Over time, with the abuse of a substance the brain will react to those surges in dopamine by producing less natural dopamine on its own, and because of this, the brain will need more of the substance to get the same affect.

Conclusion:

While there are many different opinions on whether marijuana is addictive or not; the main difference between marijuana and Hemp is the fact that hemp CBD products have less than 0.3% which is the federally allowable legal limit.  Debatably the high concentration of THC in marijuana which is what gives you the “high” is what is potentially addictive, and is also what is absent in Hemp CBD, therefore the possibility of Hemp CBD being addictive is very very low at best.
