CBD: The answer to the US’ opioid epidemic?

America’s opioid crisis is not looking good: with 115 deaths everyday due to opioid-related (read: pain-related) problems, what else can we do to alleviate the situation? That’s where CBD comes in. With natural benefits that include pain and inflammation relief, reduced anxiety and nausea, and neuroprotective qualities (among others), CBD can easily take on the many symptoms opioids are prescribed to fight. Brands such as Leafly and Weedmaps have started programs like #theexitdrug, aiming to promote CBD as a worthy substitute for opioids.
