The undeniable fact is that CBD is revolutionized in the medical world. For too many years, the demonisation of cannabis has prevented many laboratories and research centers around the world from objectively exploring the potential of active cannabis ingredients for medical purposes.
Fortunately, this changed after the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of hemp (CBD) oils for medical research. There is more and more evidence and misconceptions about hemp products are disappearing. Year after year, authorities around the world recognize how trouble-free cannabis is compared to many (even most) of over-the-counter drugs and alcohol.
Since hemp (CBD) oils are an extract from the cannabis plant, they automatically fall into the list of controlled substances. This leads to numerous myths about cannabidiol in itself, since cannabis, hemp and marijuana are not the same.
We’ll look at some of the most common myths and facts you need to know to be well informed.
- FACT – CBD stands for cannabidiol, which is a compound derived from the hemp plant. This is one of over 100 unique compounds found in hemp known as cannabinoids. It is known that cannabinoids strengthen health and keep people resistant to changes in their environment. The human body has a system of neuroreceptors called endocannabinoid system, in which cannabidiol interacts by modulating and regulating activities around CB1 and CB2 receptors. Cannabinoid receptors are everywhere in our body, from head to the toe.
- MYTH – CBD comes from marijuana – in fact that CBD is present in marijuana, it is extracted from industrial hemp. Hemp has been grown by humans for 10,000 years and is grown in many parts of the world and has numerous uses. Industrial hemp is the name of a cannabis variety that is preferred due to its property to produce fiber, seeds and hemp oil. Typically, cannabis is considered hemp if its tetrahydrocannabinol content is less than 0.2%. Moreover, a land-favorable plant is very sustainable.
- FACT – cannabidiol has been the subject of clinical research – for decades, research has been inaccessible to the majority of specialists. It is only in recent years, due to unprecedented social response and legal reforms, that this can now be offered to academics and research centres without fear of retaliation by ethics committees and even legal measures.
- MYTH – all CBD products are produced equally – and if you’ve used CBD before and the product has worked excellently, do not think that using another CBD product will give you the same results. To obtain a quality product, CBD must be grown, extracted and produced using very high standards. It is extremely important to research and purchase products from a reliable company that is known for complying with the highest quality standards. So if you’ve experienced a low-quality CBD product that hasn’t worked, don’t lose faith. Instead, look for a CBD product from a reliable company.
