Common Misconceptions About CBD

By Leah Concialdi October 05, 2021

CBD seems to be the talk of the town these days. Medical marijuana centers, a buzzword amongst cutting edge medical teams, and even on major networks such as CNN. While CBD does not get you “high,” like its cousin THC, it has certainly piqued the interest of everyone from seasoned marijuana growers to industrial hemp farmers to esteemed medical teams. With great buzz, comes information and a myriad of “facts” claiming that it is a cancer-curing, seizure-stopping miracle oil. While there are certainly a large number of cases cited with patients believing CBD to have helped their conditions significantly, it is imperative to separate what we know as scientific evidence from blatant fallacies about the cannabinoid. Let’s squelch three of the most common misconceptions about CBD:

1.) CBD is illegal throughout the United States

Wrong, CBD product are a legal market anywhere in the US as long as the product contains less than 0.3% THC. There is a fine line that prohibits any hemp product that is extracted from the leaves or the flowers to be OK. However, on a federal level, industrial hemp products can only be derived from the seed or the stalk of the plants. When it comes to CBD products such as tinctures, lotions, balms, and beyond, the cannabinoid can be extracted from leaves, flowers, and the stalk, industrial hemp CBD companies just use the stalk. While legislation is in motion to ease up on industrial hemp cultivation, there are very few states that allow the cultivation for commercial, research or pilot programs.

2.) CBD is medical and THC is recreational

 Bring on the stigmas! In defense of CBD, many have turned their backs on THC citing that CBD’s cousin is purely recreation and serves no medicinal benefits. This isn’t true. In fact, cannabinoids being used medicinally is still so new that it would be morally apprehensive to state concrete medical claims. Yes, THC has psychoactive properties, but it may also be linked to reducing nausea, assisting with sleep, and may even be able to slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. And while CBD has no psychedelic effects, it also is likely to assist in conditions such as epilepsy, cancer, and skin conditions.” The most important thing to keep in mind when using cannabinoids as treatment is that every person is different and not all treatments will work for everyone.

3.) It matters where CBD comes from

Wrong again. While medical marijuana legislation is opening up and more and more states are planting crops for medical and commercial purposes, it is by no means the only means to extract CBD. In fact, these hemp crops tend to produce almost identical THC:CBD ratios as medical marijuana. People think It often takes large amounts of industrial hemp to extract a small amount of CBD but thats simply not the case anymore as many of these industrial hemp plants have been bred specifically to have a high CBD content. The extraction method can also affect how much CBD is extracted per plant as well as its potency.  Almost all hemp derived CBD oil is made using CO2 extraction as apposed to most marijuana extractions that used a harsh chemical solvent.
