4 Myths About CBD Oil

Let’s bust some myths about CBD Oil!

Considering how taboo cannabis industry has been for decades, it’s no surprise that there is a lot of confusion about it, especially about the “innocent” CBD which should never have been villainized in the first place.

Due to psychoactive qualities of THC, which in another cannabinoid in cannabis, CBD often gets a bad rep too. But, let me tell you, it’s completely different and has often the opposite effects to THC. So let’s bust some myths about CBD!

Myth #1: CBD is Addictive.

CBD is not only non-addictive, it actually is being studied for potentially being a treatment for addictions. “Drug addiction is a chronically relapsing disorder characterized by the compulsive desire to use drugs and a loss of control over consumption.” (1) CBD is thought to modulate various neuronal circuits involved in drug addiction. There are preclinical and clinical animal and human studies that suggest that CBD may help with opioid, cocaine, and psychostimulant addictions, as well as there is some preliminary data suggesting that it may be beneficial in cannabis and tobacco addictions.

We need more studies before CBD can be used as an intervention for addictions, but one thing is for sure, CBD is definitely non-addictive.

I love this product but I have to be honest at the beginning I was very nervous to take this coming from a very addictive background and not wanting to go back there I was worried about CBD, I did research and contacted Nadya with a lot of questions (she was so helpful and full of information) and decided to finally try it and was amazed.

Myth #2: CBD is Psychoactive

CBD is non-psychoactive and it can potentially help counteract the THC effects of feeling “high”. CBD also can reduce psychotic episodes and can overall help with mental health. 

Some CBD oil contains THC and that's when it is psychoactive. Make sure to get CBD oil make with CBD crystalline or isolate and you get it from trusted sources. 

Myth #3: CBD Makes You Sleepy and Tired

CBD can make you sleep better and help you relax, but only when your body needs it. CBD brings your body into balance, so in the morning it will help boost your energy, manage anxiety and help focus, while in the evening it will help you rest after a busy day. CBD works with your natural processes and helps your body regulate them.

Myth #4: CBD Impairs Your Cognitive Functions

There are numerous studies that show that CBD can help you focus and learn better, as well as it improve your memory, attention and brain function. So taking CBD to help you work or study will definitely have a positive effect on the results. (2)

I was hesitant trying CBD because I thought it would affect my productivity. On the contrary! The days I take it, I feel calm, focused, concentrated. Importantly i can tackle the hardest tasks head-on and feel good about it. Can’t recommend it enough.
