Top 5 Myths About CBD: Learning about Cannabidiol

Science-Rite CBD Blog: Top 5 Myths About CBD

As we learn more about the cannabis compound CBD, or cannabidiol, myths are quelled left and right. When you start your journey with CBD, it’s essential to stay armed with accurate information, so we’re here to explain the top misconceptions about the compound.

Myth #1: CBD Is Addictive

Somewhere along the road, the idea that CBD was addictive grew popular. In fact, many people believe all cannabinoids are harmful for the same reason.

However, cannabidiol is not considered an addictive substance, according to the World Health Organization. While every substance has the potential for abuse, CBD was not found to be physiologically addictive.

Myth #2: All CBD Is Made the Same

The truth is, there are some low-quality CBD products on the market. Because the industry is blossoming, plenty of brands are trying to get in on the money rather than create products to help their customers.

But, while you can find mediocre CBD, you can also find high-quality cannabidiol products. The best CBD is science-backed and made with natural ingredients by brands who care about their clients.

Myth #3: CBD Products Are Free from THC

Because CBD is not all the same, this is true for the presence of THC. Each form of CBD - isolate, Broad-Spectrum, and Full-Spectrum - contains different cannabinoids.

CBD isolate contains only cannabidiol - no other cannabinoids. Full-Spectrum has CBD and other cannabinoids, including THC. And Broad-Spectrum CBD is a happy medium that includes CBD and other cannabinoids but no psychoactive THC.

Myth #4: There Is No Research About CBD

Though CBD is still unregulated by the FDA, there is research on the compound going back as far as 1940. Scientists have been studying this fascinating compound since its discovery.

While there is still much to learn about CBD, new information about its potential uses is published every day.

Myth #5: CBD Is Illegal

Like all cannabis, the legality of CBD is constantly shifting. Now, CBD is legal in all 50 states since the 2018 Farm Bill, though the exact laws differ by region.

However, THC is not legal throughout the country. That’s where Broad-Spectrum CBD products shine - they don’t contain any THC, so they are fully legal but still offer the benefits of multiple cannabinoids.
