4 Misconceptions about CBD Oil

CBD oil has worked wonders in the lives of patients across the globe. From stemming anxiety and reducing stress, to eliminating pain and improving sleep, the products are a welcome addition to the home medicine cabinet for anyone suffering from a chronic condition shown to be impacted by CBD. There are a lot of misconceptions about CBD oil, though, and if you’re considering giving it a try, you should know the truth about the product. 

CBD is an illegal substance

CBD is, in fact, not an illegal substance in the slightest. There is a lot of confusion on this topic on a state level since state’s enforce drug laws. CBD is not marajuana despite coming from the same plant. The plant produces two chemical compounds: CBD and THC. THC is the compound that gets you high and that shows up on drug tests. Products made with CBD do not use the illegal and controlled compound of THC.    

You’ll get high

A explained in the previous paragraph, CBD tinctures, edibles, tonics, and salves do not deliver THC to the body. The THC component of the plant is what causes the feeling of being high. CBD will provide pain relief and a sense of relaxation in the body without the feeling of being imparied. Using the products also won’t cause you to fail a drug test at work.   

Only really sick people need CBD

The medicinal marajuana industry has increased the perception that the use of cannabis plants as medicine should be reserved for only those dying of cancer or some other terminal terrible condition. That couldn’t be further from the truth and the fact is most people could benefit from incorporating CBD in their health care. If you suffer from arthritis, tendonitis, stress, poor sleep, anxiety, back or neck pain, chronic muscle pain, or even bad skin, you might benefit greatly from trying a CBD oil. 

You have to smoke it

There won’t be any joint rolling happening if you choose to incorporate CBD into your health care regimens. In fact, taking CBD doesn’t require that you ever smoke the product. Instead, producers have created a whole slate of other delivery mechanisms for CBD’s benefits including edibles, salves and lotions, tinctures, oils, and more. No smoking required, ever.
