Since the 2018 Farm Bill passed, and even years before then, rumors have been swirling about CBD..its benefits, its hallucinogenic properties, the best way to ingest, you name it. There is a general lack of understanding about what it does as research continues, but it is rising in popularity and demand. As the first one-stop shop, online CBD marketplace, we thought it would be helpful to share 3 things that are actually myths.
CBD Gets You High
CBD and THC are often grouped together as having the same properties and, therefore, are assumed to both get you high in the same way. Here’s a quick refresher – CBD and THC are cannabinoids that come from the cannabis plant and are the most common found in cannabis products. Yes, they are in both marijuana and hemp although marijuana contains much more THC than hemp, while hemp has a lot of CBD. Yes, they have the same chemical formula but their atoms are arranged differently and that is what gives them different chemical properties that affect your body differently! THC is the main psychoactive compound that makes people feel high.
CBD Vaping Is the Same as E-Vaping
Many people don’t realize that there is a big difference between vaping CBD and vaping a regular e-juice. As we’ve seen in the news, many regular e-juices are coming under fire for their nicotine content, which is well-known as an addictive chemical that’s particularly harmful to minors. While it’s possible for nicotine and other compounds to be combined with CBD in a vape juice, CBD vape juices don’t possess any nicotine. Many CBD vape juices take advantage of broad-spectrum hemp extracts, which contain a group of natural compounds that don’t pose the same threats as a regular e-juice.
CBD Is Harmful to Pets
Every single mammal (including animals and humans) possesses an endocannabinoid system, which is the biological system most stimulated by CBD when it is absorbed into your body. Therefore, dogs, cats, hamsters, hedgehogs and rabbits are able to experience the compound in the same way you are. With this fun fact in mind, it is possible that CBD may help reduce the physical and emotional strains that your pet feels.
