If you’re just beginning your research into CBD, you’ve probably run into a lot of myths and fake news about what CBD is and how it affects you. We want you to have all the accurate facts and information about the process and benefits of using CBD so you can make informed decisions for yourself. Here are 4 myths about CBD products that you shouldn’t believe:
1. CBD is Marijuana
Probably the biggest and most inaccurate misconception of CBD is that it is marijuana. While hemp and marijuana both belong to the same family, their parent plant contains more than 80 biologically active compounds, so the two plants have different ingredients. The difference lies in THC versus CBD. In marijuana, you’ll find delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, which is a psychoactive drug that makes you high. In CBD, the main component is cannabidiol that affects your body in ways that lead to health benefits, such as reduced stress and less pain.
2. CBD is a Scam
Despite what you may have heard, CBD and the CBD industry is not a scam. The FDA has approved of multiple medications that consist of CBD that help prevent seizures, relieve pain, boost your mood and improve sleep. While research is still in earlier stages, it is proven that when consumed, CBD interacts with your endocannabinoid system. This interaction has proven to have positive effects on reducing inflammation and lessening conditions such as chronic and neuropathic pain, headaches and migraines, anxiety and insomnia.
3. You’ll See Fast Results
One comment we hear all the time is, “I’ve been taking CBD for a week and nothing has happened.” That’s because CBD is not a fast results product. Unlike marijuana, CBD doesn’t cause a rapid psychoactive response. Most people begin to see effects of CBD gradually, over a span of days or weeks after consistently taking the product. Consistency is key, so remember to be routinely taking your CBD products in order to see the best results.
