Want to quit smoking? Vaping CBD might be the solution for you!

Are you addicted to Nicotine? Nicotine is one of the most highly addictive drugs know to man.  It is more addictive than opioids, more addictive than cocaine, more addictive that alcohol, and even more addictive than caffeine.

Nicotine withdrawal, dependency, tolerance and addiction

When you smoke or vape nicotine, the drug travels quickly to the brain where is causes a feeling of temporary relaxation and/or stress relief.  But this feeling is only temporary.  After your body rids itself of the drug, you start to crave another cigarette.  You develop feelings such as restlessness, irritability, difficulty focusing, and depressive symptoms.  This is call withdrawal.

The next cigarette you light up is because you are searching for more stress relief, or because you are drawn into the social cures around you.  This is called dependency.

When you smoke, nicotine enters the brain within seconds.  Receptors in the brain are activated and dopamine, the pleasure hormone, is released.  This instantly produces a sensation of happiness and calm – but the results are only temporary.  During this time, more nicotine receptors are formed in the brain requiring progressively higher amounts of nicotine to achieve the same positive effect.  This is called tolerance.

When the pleasant sensation disappears, the person craves anther cigarette.  This is called addiction.

How can you  find a way to address the reason that got you smoking in the first place?

How can that be done without exposing oneself to the destructive effects cigarettes have on the body, such as heart disease, strokes, emphysema, bronchitis, and lung cancer?

How can you stop the downward spiral of tolerance, addiction, and withdrawal?

The answer lies in CBD vapes.

CBD alters the endocannabinoid system and offers you the very same benefits you get from smoking a cigarette without any of the ill effects.  When you vape CBD, the effects start immediately and simultaneously, the symptoms of nicotine tolerance, addiction, and withdrawal are reduced.  As you continue to vape cbd, in a number of days (or months) – as it varies in each individual, the cigarette addiction is conquered – for good.

So, the next time you feel like smoking or vaping a cigarette, reach for a CBD vape.  It will cure your addiction while affording you all of the psychological benefit of cigarettes – and none of the dangers.
