From manual page:

When CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER is set to false, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST must be set explicity (true or false) in order to receive a result. Otherwise, the curl function will fail silently and return no result. 

Test script:
$ch = curl_init("");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, false); // required to be set to true or false in order to receive a result with CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER=false
$result = curl_exec($ch);

I can't reproduce the problem. Can you still produce it ? If yes what version of curl are you using ?

php -r 'print_r(curl_version()['version']);'
