With CBD’s surging popularity comes a lot of misinformation. Here are some common ones.
- “CBD is addictive.” A recent study by the World Health Organization (WHO) found no evidence that CBD is addictive. They concluded that natural chemical found in cannabis is not phsycho-active and does not stimulate co-dependency.
- “CBD is better without THC.” Actually full-spectrum CBD that contains other cannabis compounds and THC have broader medicinal qualities, and single-molecule THC is considered by he government to be a Schedule III pharmaceutical, which means it has little abuse potential.
- “CBD is a sedative.” Some people find moderate amounts of CBD gives them more alertness and energy. Howeever, high doses can be sleep-inducing, and it is prescribed to help regulate sleep for people suffering from insomnia.
- “High doses of CBD is better than low doses of CBD.” Again full spectrum CBD’s are more effective than isolated CBD compounds. Professionals prescribe low doses of CBD taken at intervals which are more therapeutic than large does.
- “All CBD prodcuts are the same.” Hemp is cultivated differently depending on the breeder, place and regulations. There are also several factors – like extraction methods and ingredients – that affect the quality of CBD products. Read How to Choose a CBD Oil Product.
