Clinical trials and studies show it can.

The compulsive desire of an individual to use and seek cigarettes despite its negative consequences is a sign of addiction. Cigarette smoking is one of the most common addiction around the world. Like any other forms of addition, it has bad effects on health.

A recent study conducted by Morgan et al (1) on the effects of CBD on tobacco-related addictive behavior showed a significant reduction in the number of cigarettes smoked (≈40%) in the CBD inhaler group during the week of treatment, with a trend indicating a reduction after follow-up. Both groups also showed a reduction in cravings between day 1 and day 7, though not between day 1 and follow-up. Moreover, it is amazing to know that based on the results of the study there were No data were found on the possible effects of CBD on withdrawal symptoms and risk of relapse among individuals who quit smoking.

Another group of researchers, Jutras-Aswad et al (2) found out that 40% reduction in the number of cigarettes smoked when a group was given a CBD inhaler, with a trend indicating a reduction after follow-up. A clinical trial on animals were also conducted and it has shown a positive effect of CBD oil on opioid and psychostimulant addiction.

There you have it. So, would you rather find other alternatives?

I know that full spectrum CBD oil is much more effective vs isolate based oils. Is it the same for CBD vape juice?

yes mate, full spectrum is always better as you have entourage effect with all the cannabinoids, not just CBD

CBD products have their benefits. The cannabis plant contains more than 100 different chemical compounds known as CBD products, which gather with the body’s endo cannabinoid system in ways that researchers are working so as to near understanding.
