While many people know about the benefits of using CBD, they are hesitant to make the jump because of things they have been told or have read online. Unfortunately, many of these assumptions are not true and have been widely misinterpreted. Here are 4 myths about CBD products you should know about and the truth behind them:
When many people think of CBD, they think of marijuana. While marijuana is still illegal in some states, CBD is perfectly legal. The misconception of this is widely because of the confusion between CBD and THC. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the only psychoactive component of the cannabis plant, which creates the high of recreational cannabis, and is what makes the drug illegal. However, CBD on the other hand is non-psychoactive, and therefore is legal and has many health benefits.
Associated with the legality in the first point, many people stay away from CBD because they believe it will make them high. Again, CBD in itself can not make you high. The reality is that one of the many positive effects of CBD products is the ability to affect the serotonin receptors in the brain. Because people talk about the fact that CBD can help with anxiety and depression causing them to feel more relaxed, people assume that this is the same as being high which is simply not the case. For a simpler understanding, the THC is what gives you the high, while the CBD gives you the mental relief needed to be more productive throughout the day.
While it would be nice to take a couple of drops of CBD oil and feel like a brand new person, that is just not the case. As with most supplements and oils, the time taken to work its way into your system will vary from person to person. It is important to know that putting CBD oil under the tongue will work faster than taking a dietary supplement. We recommend always starting off with a low dose of CBD, so it may take a few days to figure out the right dosage and method of consumption.
