CBD: Breaking Down 3 Common Myths
There is now so much information on cannabidiol (CBD), it’s hard to tell the facts from the myths. There is tons of medical research on the topic that provides valuable and crucial info. However, less dependable sources are also spewing CBD related posts that may not all be true. This guide will separate the most reliable facts from three of the most common myths on the topic.
Myth 1: CBD Is Non-psychoactive
Almost everyone believes that CBD does not alter the conscious state, but can still somehow used to treat anxiety. It very clearly does affect the psyche. A better way to explain CBD would be to say that it is instead “non-impairing” unlike THC. Further, CBD can be considered both recreational and medicinal. The same goes for THC.
Myth 2: CBD Activates Cannabinoid Receptors
All humans have something called an endocannabinoid system that works to keep us healthy. It tells our cells how to respond to illness and injury. The system is popularly targeted by different healing methods, including marijuana because of the THC and CBD within its makeup. Both are famously known for relieving pain, nausea, insomnia, and feelings of anxiety and depression. However, CBD does not activate the cannabinoid receptors the way that THC does. Instead, CBD actually turns down the activity level.
Myth 3: CBD Is A Sedative
CBD is actually alerting instead of seating. Some research has shown that CBD can actually counteract the sedative effects of its cousin THC. Dr. Dustin Sulak, a medical marijuana expert explains why he thinks people continue to get this wrong. He says that while very high doses of pure CBD will not act as a sedative some people claim it does because of mycrene. Mycrene is a potentially sedative terpene found in marijuana with high levels of CBD.
