Over-reliance on substances of any kind is not ideal -- so it's natural to wonder: are CBD oils addictive? Just because a substance is legal doesn't necessarily mean it's a good idea to develop an unhealthy dependency or fixation on it. But is CBD addictive? Technically it is not, in neither the chemical nor behavioral sense, but as humans we do have a tendency to become reliant on anything that makes us feel better (which CBD often does). As long as whatever this is does not have negative long term consequences, that is ok. Remember, know your dosing (check out our CBD dosing guidelines) and everything in moderation - even drinking too much water can put you in the hospital! In this article, we explore the different types of addictions, where CBD does and does not fall on this spectrum, and how CBD may actually help with certain types of addictions.
