With all the talk in the media these days about CBD, it’s sometimes hard to separate the wheat from the chaff. Some say it’s a miracle cure and others believe it’s all hype, but what about those obvious CBD myths?
CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is an active compound inside cannabis and hemp. The thing that makes CBD different from other compounds in cannabis such as THC is that CBD doesn’t make you feel stoned or disoriented and there’s no paranoia to worry about either.
CBD is used medicinally and therapeutically to treat a variety of different conditions. These include insomnia, anxiety, depression, pain, and inflammation. There are also people who treat chemotherapy symptoms with CBD, and it’s also been successful in treating more severe medical conditions such as Parkinson’s and epilepsy.
CBD has only been around in a commercial sense for a few years, even though it was isolated as a cannabis and hemp compound scientifically some years ago. These days you can find CBD in many different forms just about anywhere. There’s CBD Oil of course, then there’s CBD Vape Juice which is vaped in a suitable device.
There are also many CBD skincare and beauty products on the market which are also beloved by many. But with all the hype comes negatives stories and press which seem to be in the headlines more and more these days.
The truth of the matter is that we don’t know enough about CBD to understand its full potential. We do know that CBD is safe, as long as it’s pure and is extracted correctly. We also know that CBD doesn’t get you high or leave you feeling disoriented in the way that conventional cannabis does. We’re taking a look at 3 of the most common CBD myths around, just to see if we can debunk them.
