The evidence for a role of CBD in treating substance abuse continues to point towards potential use in treatment centers.”

To determine whether CBD can attenuate cocaine reinforcement, we assessed behavioural responses induced by cocaine in mice, using the behavioural sensitization, conditioned place preference and intravenous self-administration paradigms.
