In recent years, CBD has become quite popular. People who are concerned with their health have developed an interest in it. Still, there are many myths and misconceptions about CBD. These myths must be debunked so more people can experience the benefits of CBD.
Some people are afraid to try CBD because they think it is addictive. This belief comes from the stigma associated with marijuana. People need to understand though that while marijuana contains CBD, most of the CBD products on the market are derived from hemp. Hemp and marijuana are related but they are two distinct plants. The most important difference between the two is that marijuana contains high amounts of THC – a psychoactive substance – while hemp contains very little of it. This is why hemp CBD is not addictive. Even the World Health Organization or WHO has said that CBD is not addictive.
Because CBD contains very little THC – just 0.3% – it means that it cannot get you high. Another myth about CBD is that it is just as psychoactive as marijuana. CBD is psychoactive but in a different way. It can boost your mood and make you feel more relaxed. But that is because it directly affects the endocannabinoid system or ECS. This is the system that is responsible for maintaining balance in the body, a state known as homeostasis.
