De-Bunking a few CBD Myths
De-Bunking a few CBD Myths
The myths around CBD products are plenty. Often considered as a taboo, CBD has, however, slowly yet steadily entered into our day-to-day lives. It is now essential, more than ever, to educate ourselves and understand the reality of some myths that have been around for ages.
CBD is psychoactive and gets you high!
This is the most common belief in majority of the people and it’s not wrong to think so too, since for age long we have been preached about the high effects of marijuana. However, this is not true in any sense and it’s necessary to educate ourselves on this. The high factor is contributed by THC element of marijuana plant, CBD is completely devoid of this. In reality, CBD is actually a non-intoxicating compound which is natural and safe. There are researches, in fact, which proves that CBD counteracts the high nature caused by THC. Hence, rest assured because this is false claim and it’s time for us to learn and grow.
CBD is a sedating drug that makes you sleepy!
Again, this is a very common claim in most people who think that CBD tires the body and makes you sleepy. However, this is nothing but a misconception in our minds. CBD is relaxing, not sedating and there is a huge difference between the two. This misconception might be owing to the reason that THC also found from marijuana has a sedative effect.
The more the CBD, the Better its Effect.!
Excess of anything is harmful, and so is the case in CBD. Most people believe that if they find relief from using CBD oil/ products, they should use is in excess to fasten their relief. However, this should be avoided as there have been multiple reports suggest that the effect of CBD is usually productive when taken at low doses. It is essential to consult a doctor before you start using CBD to get prettily examined and instructed on its use as per your requirement, body’s metabolism, health condition etc.
All CBD are Equal
Many a times when someone has good effect by using a CBD product, they tend to think all CBD products are the same. But such is not the case. As any other product, CBD products could also be exploited and hence getting them from authorized stores and websites is really important. Good and quality CBD products are generally extracted and manufactured using high standards by professionals in the field. Hence, before buying it is essential to conduct a thorough research and purchase products from a trusted company that is known for adhering to the highest quality standards.
CBD products are only sold in black market!
This is the most baseless claim by majority of the people. It is imperative to understand that CBD products are legally sold across the United States whose THC content is less than 0.3 percent. Hence, any person can buy such products from dispensaries in all 50 states without any legal barrier. However, the only thing to keep in mind is that since CBD is unregulated some players in the market might sell CBD products with high THC content, so it is our duty to check its content before buying the products.
CBD products are not safe!
Few people tend to be of the impression that CBD is unsafe and might cause overdose. Human body naturally produces CBD like molecules through ECS (Endocannabinoid System) which helps in causing an optimal balance in the body; hence it is not possible to overdose on CBD. Research has also shown that even high doses of CBD show no sign of toxicity since they response to change in environment through ECS.
