CBD is somewhat new to society and we all are just trying to find our way around it. It is still very much in its infantile stage and there is no short of the myriad of myths and misconceptions that surround this herbal extract. Let us try to filter out the truths from the blatant lies, and enlighten you on the impacts on your mental and physical health.
Let us begin.
Larger Dosages Provide A Larger Effect
When it comes to CBD the phrase “less is really more”, holds true. CBD is not a substance that can intoxicate you and doesn’t create the proverbial high that is associated with marijuana. For this reason, one cannot make out if the CBD is working on them. The effects take time to kick in. Most of the time the effects of CBD are more understated than psychoactive.
In the rush, people end up taking another dose of CBD. If you were to take too much CBD, you will end up negating the positive effects. CBD works differently on different people based on their chemical makeup. Take the time and be patient with the CBD product to exact its benefits.
CBD Creates A High
This is a myth on CBD that has been debunked, time and time again. The reason why people are often confused is that the substance that is present in marijuana is not the substance that CBD is. CBD is one of the several substances or cannabinoids that is present in the cannabis family of plants.
One other substance is THC or tetrahydrocannabinol. This is the substance that is responsible for the intoxicating effects that all are aware of. The feeling of high is because of the 40% dry weight of marijuana comprising of THC.
In the case of hemp, which is another in the family of cannabis plants, there is THC. However, the THC makes a shriveling 0.3% of the total dry weight. This is why those who consume full-spectrum CBD hemp products will not feel any intoxicating effects.
CBD is purely a therapeutic substance that exacts holistic benefits on the user. Under no circumstances has anyone, anywhere around the world ‘overdosed’ on CBD. There hasn’t been any such case reported, and the chances of it happening are also next to none.
With these myths on CBD aside, walk yourself through the wonderful experience of CBD therapy. There is no short of the benefits that one can hope to achieve!
