Myths and Misconceptions Surrounding CBD

CBD is gaining popularity all over the continents. There are, however, growing myths and misconceptions that have surrounded the use of CBD. Cannabidiol is a non-toxic cannabis extract that has numerous therapeutic benefits. There’s still so much confusion related to CBD, particularly because of its relation to cannabis. The product’s legality is also a matter of contention in many states.

This article will shed some light on the myths and misconceptions surrounding CBD.

CBD is good cannabidiol, while THC is the bad cannabidiol

CBD and THC are both compounds that exist in the cannabis plant. The supplement CBD is the compound referred to as cannabidiol while THC is known as tetrahydrocannabinol. Many people know that CBD is the medicinal compound while THC is harmful. This belief is wrong. THC, when used properly, can induce healing properties on the human body. When missed, it poses a danger to the body. Cannabis has some healing components which, when exploited, can help alleviate some of the most common illnesses. The problem comes in when people, especially the youth, use it every single day with no particular illness. Research has shown that cannabis, inclusive of all its compounds, can be a miracle-working plant, but only if used subjectively.

CBD oil is illegal

CBD is a legal extract from the cannabis plant which is used for its medicinal value. Many contentions are surrounding the legality of CBD. Some countries are, however, yet to come to terms with the beneficial properties of CBD. Considering CBD is extracted from cannabis, which is illegal in many states for its harmful effects on the human body, some countries have been slow in allowing the manufacture and sale of CBD products. According to seralabshealth.com, when buying a CBD product, it’s prudent to look into whether the company selling the product has been licensed or not. Not many people realize this.

CBD oil is just used for pain

One important use of CBD oil is to relieve chronic body pains and arthritis. CBD oil has many other benefits. It can be used to reduce inflammations, prevent type1 diabetes, prevent acne, alleviate anxiety, prevent sleep disorders – the list is endless.

CBD oil will leave you addicted

CBD isn’t addictive. It doesn’t work the same way as cannabis. The oil is used to reduce complications such as stress and depression. It induces the brain’s neurotransmitters to transmit feel-good hormones which alleviate feelings of sadness and depression. It induces the production of more endocannabinoids in the body which, in turn, restores balance in the body.

CBD oil triggers hallucinations

Unlike marijuana, CBD won’t give you hallucinations. Research has shown that CBD doesn’t have a psychoactive effect on the human mind.

CBD is only extracted from the cannabis

It’s quite true that CBD compounds are extracted from the cannabis plant. This is only possible in countries where medical marijuana is legal. Industrial hemp also contains huge amounts of the CBD compound.
