Debunking CBD Myths and Wellbeing Benefits

 

We’re excited for you to experience the benefits of our mindfully crafted products, although we’re sure you have questions.  There are a lot of pros and cons about CBD and it’s easy to become misinformed.


As stewards of this plant we are here to shed light on some of the common myths associated with CBD and to address some of the questions surrounding its wellbeing benefits.


Myth: CBD will get you high 

People falsely believe that CBD has the same effects as marijuana because it’s derived from the same plant. However,  CBD and THC do not have the same psychoactive properties, CBD will not get you “high”. THC gives you that “high” feeling, whereas CBD is non-psychoactive. This means that you can use Cannabidiol freely without having any traces of THC and it’s 100% legal.


Myth: It has no medical merits 

Not so long ago, the FSA approved a CBD-based drug to treat seizure disorders, which was once very difficult to address. The more educated you are on the proper use of the product, the better the chance you’ll get the benefit from it. With universities being allowed to conduct research on CBD, it’s only a matter of time before these claims will have sufficient scientific backing in near the future.

Myth: “I tried CBD for a couple of weeks and it doesn’t work”

Like anything health related, you have to be intentional when seeking a solution. What’s the problem and how can I address it? It’s like taking a painkiller when you’re not suffering from any pain. 

The industry advocates are still discovering the therapeutic benefits of CBD, but here’s what we are aware of. Your body has something called an endocannabinoid system, which helps regulate a range of functions and processes, including; sleep, mood, appetite, memory, reproduction and fertility. CBD positively interacts with your body’s endocannabinoid system to improve these processes, supporting your body and mind so you feel better. 

There are a lot of factors that can influence how long it takes to start feeling the effects of CBD, such as the dose, method and metabolism. It can take a few weeks of taking a CBD product consistently before noticing a difference and being able to determine how your body is reacting to it, especially if you are not experiencing acute symptoms. CBD may take a little experimenting to figure out how much you should be taking and how you want to take it.

Myth: More is better

It’s always best to find the perfect dose for you in order to see effective results. Start with small doses and increase as needed until you achieve the effect desired and you can determine how your body reacts especially since everyone metabolizes things differently. 

 

Myth: CBD is addictive

In a comprehensive report on CBD, the World Health Organisation (WHO) reported on its potential for addiction. The report concluded: “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential.”
