6 Common misconceptions about CBD

"CBD is purely medical"

While many people think of CBD as the "medical part" of the hemp plant and THC as the "recreational part" CBD can also be used to improve mood and the way you relax.

"CBD still gets you high"

True, CBD comes from the same plant as THC, but it does not get you high. In fact, some experts argue that CBD counteracts the "scary high" feelings of THC, and works as an anti-psychotic.

"CBD will make me sleepy"

Very high doses of CBD can be sleep promoting, but CBD is not a sedative. Moderate doses of CBD are energising, causing feelings of alertness and focus after taking CBD.

"CBD shows up as a drug test"

Drug tests screen for THC, the psychoactive agent in cannabis. CBD is a non-psychoactive and non-intoxicating compound. Full spectrum CBD has a negligible amount of THC and Broad spectrum CBD is THC free. If you are drug tested for work I recommend getting the Broad spectrum CBD.

"CBD from hemp isn't CBD"

Many people think CBD should be sourced from marijuana plants rather than hemp. CBD is juts as powerful if sourced from a hemp plant versus a marijuana plant if the hemp plant used is female.

"CBD oil is just for human use"

CBD oil is for all mammals as we all have the same endocrine systems. CBD is for everyone in the house, including your furry friends and even horses.
