Biggest Myths about CBD

More than ever before, the polarizing topic of legal marijuana is at the forefront of a raging debate. It's long been known that the cannabis plant has medicinal benefits, which have always been counterbalanced by its noted psychoactive effects. The latter side effect has been the primary reason for resistance to marijuana's widespread acceptance.

However, if there is truly to be any headway in solidifying the legal status of marijuana, the public must gain an understanding of cannabis extracts.

The primary active ingredients in marijuana are THC and CBD (cannabidiol). THC is much more widely known, mostly because it is generally considered the more powerful of the two; as well as being the ingredient that provides the characteristic cannabis "high." It is because of THC that cannabidiol has now risen to the forefront as interested parties wonder investigate whether it can deliver the same health benefits as THC – without the psycho-activity.

Unfortunately, this sudden spike in popularity is the cause for the proliferation of several myths about CBD and the exact role cannabidiol plays.

First Myth

Many people believe that cannabidiol is the primary component in the marijuana plant that's responsible for inhibiting the growth of malignant tumors. This cancer-fighting effect has been promulgated in the media without restraint the past few years, but it isn't probably true. It's actually the powerful chemical THC that's responsible for most of the psychological stimulation, as well as tumor inhibition.

Second Myth

CBD is not the primary ingredient that many cannabis users are seeking when they use marijuana. The mass urge towards cannabidiol ignores the fact that, by itself, there have been no conclusive studies on the primacy of CBD's effects; rather it works most effectively in conjunction with THC.

Third Myth

Many proponents of legal cannabis have proffered the idea that CBD isn't psychologically-stimulating, as a way to perhaps expedite the release of restrictions on marijuana use. The problem is this isn't true; cannabidiol is psychoactive – just not to the same extent as THC.

It's also important to know that the cannabis widely available today doesn't have much cannabidiol in it, because the plants have had their chemical makeup diluted over the last few decades by industrial processes. It's only in recent times, with the drastic increase in public interest in pure cannabis extracts, that growers have started introducing CBD back into marijuana.
