Looking On The Bright Side of Hemp

Cannabidiol – Busting Three Common Myths

Thanks to medical cannabis application, CBD has been drawing the attention it deserves. For decades, breeders have been growing cannabis to get more THC, the compound behind its psychoactive effects. The higher the better -that’s what they used to say.

These days, that is no longer true exactly. Though THC has plenty of its own important medicinal benefits, CBD could be the cannabinoid holding the key to legalization. We’ve now seen a rush of strains that are bred purely for their CBD content, like the famous Charlotte’s Web which is specifically effective against seizures and epilepsy. CBD oil is becoming more popular as well, along with many other CBD products.

Awareness of the benefits of CBD is vital, as there are still anti-cannabis advocates who continue to throw lies about this useful cannabinoid. Below are the most common myths about CBD that have to be junked:

ALL CBD ARE THE SAME.
Smart Ideas: Hemp Revisited

Naysayers say CBD is the same, whatever its source. Whether you are taking CBD oil from help or smoking cannabis, the body can’t distinguish the difference. Truth is, it definitely matters – if you got it from hemp, even if it’s organically grown, it’s not going to be the best source of powerful CBD compounds.

Hemp has way less CBD compared to the cannabis plant. In fact, it would require a big amount of industrial hemp just to give you a small amount of CBD, putting you in danger of exposing your body to deadly substances from nature, like heavy metals in soil. CBD coming from single-molecule samples produced in a lab or extracted from industrial hemp, doesn’t have the same secondary cannabinoids and useful terpenes that naturally occur in the cannabis plant.

CBD IS THE GOOD GUY AND THC IS THE BAD GUY.

Anti-cannabis groups keep vilifying THC while praising CBD, further adding to the stigma that the former is a bad cannabinoid because it makes you high. Meanwhile, they say only CBD should be used because it won’t give you a buzz. Both cannabinoids have their own unique medicinal properties and a long list of illnesses they can help cure or manage. Studies have proven that both CBD and THC work in tandem and actually bolster each other’s therapeutic effects.

CBD HEMP OIL ISN’T FOR KIDS.

CBD hemp oil is totally safe for patients of any age. Further research still has to be conducted, though current research already shows that CBD hemp oil is perfectly safe for children. CBD oil and CBD-infused hemp oil have already been used for a range of pediatric conditions, including epilepsy and seizures, with no significant side effects. CBD is also safe for patients of any age they are since it has no psychoactive properties.
