CBD is an acronym for Cannabidiol and is one of over 60 compounds found in cannabis that belong to a class of ingredients called cannabinoids. There are many reported health benefits with CBD – Among them are pain relief, lessen anxiety, nausea, diabetes, cardiovascular health, and even reports of helping with some types of cancer.
The main thrust of this article however isn’t to get into the benefits, but rather the myths of CBD; separating CBD Fact from Fiction.
Myth #1: CBD Will Get You High
Hemp-derived CBD Products have less than 0.3% THC and will not cause feelings of intoxication.
myth #2: A Urinalysis (Drug Test) Only Measures THC
While hemp extracts predominantly contain CBD, they are not completely THC free. It is recommended that anyone who is required to not fail a drug test avoid all hemp (CBD) products.
Myth #3: You need THC to activate CBD
Hemp contains many bioactive compounds that interplay to optimize health and wellness. While there are many constituents of the plant, including THC, that work together, CBD can also work alone.
Myth #4: Hemp-derived cbd is not as potent or effective as cbd from marijuana
CBD is CBD, no matter the original source. The human body does not recognize whether CBD is sourced from medical cannabis or hemp. All the body’s biological activity, interaction with various enzymes, and receptors specific to CBD remain the same.
Myth #5: CBD products are illegal since they come from cannabis
Products that are manufactured from agricultural hemp are exempt from the Federal Controlled Substances Act. Therefore, it is legal to buy hemp-derived CBD products.
