(WILX/NBC) - New research from the UK suggests prescribed doses of cannabidiol could help people quit marijuana.

The study included 82 people with cannabis use disorder, who were given 400 to 800 milligrams of CBD — or a placebo — over a four week period. Six months later, the CBD group had lower levels of cannabis in their urine and a greater number of days without marijuana use than the placebo group.

The study was led by researchers at the University of Bath in the United Kingdom and published in “The Lancet Psychiatry.”
