4 Myths About CBD: Debunked

As researchers, medical professionals, and regular everyday people continue to discover the amazing benefits of CBD, more and more information has become widely available to anyone who wants it. While this is, ultimately, a really great thing, it’s important to remember that where there is information, there is also misinformation.

There are a lot of misconceptions floating around about CBD that can be harmful to those who could potentially benefit from trying it, but who are put off by falsehoods. To help clear the air, we’re debunking some of the most common myths you’ll read and hear about CBD!

Myth #1: CBD will get you high.

Some articles claim that CBD has no psychoactive effects—this is not true. However, it is true that CBD does NOT produce the same euphoric high as THC. Rather, CBD often makes people feel less anxious, more relaxed, and has other positive effects on brain activity.

Myth #2: CBD is illegal.

Because many people confuse CBD with marijuana, they think it’s illegal or that the legality varies by state. But in 2018, the Farm Bill legalized CBD products across the United States. The only legal requirements for CBD products is that they must be derived from the hemp plant and cannot contain more than .3% THC.

Myth #3: There is no clinical research to support the benefits of CBD.

Research into the uses and effectiveness of CBD is still in the preliminary stages, but to say there is no clinical data to support it is false. In a 2018 report, the World Health Organization stated that CBD has been demonstrated as an effective treatment for epilepsy/seizures. That same report stated that preliminary evidence also shows CBD could be effective in treating aspects of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, psychosis, MS, cancer, diabetes complications, pain, anxiety, and depression.

Myth #4: CBD works the same for everyone.

Some people take CBD once or try it for a week and then give up when they don’t feel any effect, because they assume it works the same way for everyone. The truth is that CBD effects everyone differently, and it often takes time and consistent use to experience the full benefits. How CBD products affect your mind and body will depend on factors like your weight, genetics, health conditions, and how your endocannabinoid system interacts with CBD.
