Cannabidiol as a novel candidate alcohol use disorder pharmacotherapy: a systematic review.

Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research banner

“There is substantial interest in the therapeutic potential of cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive cannabinoid¬†found in plants of the genus Cannabis. The goal of the current systematic review was to characterize the existing literature on this topic and to evaluate the credibility of CBD as a candidate pharmacotherapy for alcohol use disorder (AUD). Collectively, given its favorable effects on alcohol-related harms and addiction phenotypes in preclinical models, CBD appears to have promise as a candidate AUD pharmacotherapy.”¬†
