There is a lot of information about CBD, some reliable and some not so reliable. With all this information floating around it's hard to know what is true and what is not. So, we decided to come up with 5 common myths about CBD. Furthermore, these are myths that we know for sure hold no merit. Some are hard to believe and others make sense but are myths nonetheless.
5 Common Myths About CBD
We get it, CBD is an amazing product. A lot of people have had amazing experiencing and while some myths might be true for some people; everybody is different and react differently to CBD. In addition, we can't put a label on our products based on 1 persons experience. There has to be hard scientific evidence in order for something to be true. The good news is the FDA is still testing CBD to find out more about this amazing product. Here are 5 common myths about CBD:
CBD Is The Same As Marijuana
Many people are nervous to try CBD because they think it's the same as Cannabis (Marijuana). CBD is not the same as Marijuana even though they might look and smell the same. We get why people would believe this myth. For many years Hemp was in the same category as Marijuana. After being told for many years that Marijuana is bad; it's hard for a lot of people to believe otherwise. While Marijuana is still illegal CBD is completely legal because it comes from the Hemp plant.
The major difference between CBD and Marijuana is the THC content. THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is the active compound in Marijuana that gets you high. CBD that is legal can have no more than 0.03% of THC which is not enough to get you high. The best way to describe CBD is by thinking of all the rich properties of Marijuana; but without the intoxicating feeling. While CBD may look and smell like Marijuana it's something completely different.
The More CBD The Better
A common myth is if you take high amounts of CBD you'll have a better experience. The trick is to find that sweet spot where you take enough CBD that is enjoyable. So, it's not necessary to take high amounts of CBD all at once. It might be tempting to take a lot of CBD at one time because you want to enjoy it immediately. There is a strategy to get the most out of your CBD and here are some tips:
Tip 1: Buy a bigger strength
If you normally take 1,000 mg of CBD Tinctures then consider upgrading to 1,500 mg or 2,000 mg. Not only will you get more CBD it can last longer too. You will take less CBD oil than you would with a 1,000 mg CBD Tincture. So, less is more and it can last you longer as well.
Tip 2: How you take CBD
Since our CBD Tinctures are our most popular; we tend to give you more tips on how to make those last longer. However, if you enjoy our CBD Flower you can smoke little amounts to enjoy it faster. This allows you to enjoy the CBD at your own pace. If you don't enjoy smoking CBD than our CBD Softgels is another option you might want to consider. How you take CBD matters when it comes to how much CBD you should take.
CBD Has No Side Effects
There are companies that will advertise CBD to you as a miracle product. We stand behind our products and believe they are safe for consumption; but every person is different and some can experience side effects. However, these side effects can be different for some people depending on their health history. Also, it depends on what type of medication they are taking. If you have a compromised immune system or other health issues we recommend speaking with your doctor. The reason is because if you are taking medication you don't know how CBD will interact with it.
Also, we recommend talking to your vet if you pet is taking any form of medication. Our CBD for Pets products are amazing but you want to make sure it's safe for your pets medical condition. Keep in mind that our bodies metabolize products different and you want to read the ingredients of our products. This is especially important if you are allergic to any particular ingredient. We want you to have a good experience using our CBD so it's good to do your research first.
CBD Will Make You Sleepy
A common myth is that CBD will make you sleepy regardless of what type of CBD it is. If you want to take CBD to help you fall asleep we recommend adding it to Chamomile tea. You can add drops of CBD oil to any tea that promotes sleep. We can't guarantee that it will make you fall asleep but it will make for a good experience. You will read on the internet how a person took CBD and it made them fall asleep. We are not discrediting their experience but everyone is different and reacts to CBD differently.
What we recommend is looking for CBD products that have ingredients that promote sleep. Our Sweet Dreams Full Spectrum CBD Pen has Melatonin. Our bodies naturally produce Melatonin to help regulate sleep-wake cycles. Also, taking a bath before falling asleep might be another way to help you fall asleep. You can try adding our Relax CBD Epsom Salt to your bath water to enhance your bath experience. It comes with Lavender Essential oils, and Nano Spectrum CBD. This makes for a good bath time because you deserve it. So, taking CBD might not make you fall asleep but can add CBD to products that promote sleep.
CBD Is Expensive
This myth was true when CBD first made headlines but many people still believe that CBD is expensive. To the untrained eye CBD can seem expensive but there is a lot of things to consider. The products most consumers believe are expensive are the CBD Tinctures. The reason why it appears to be expensive is because you are buying a small bottle at a high price. CBD Tinctures are more concentrated so they tend to last longer Vs. other CBD products.
