Due to its spreading use throughout the UK, a range of myths has spread about CBD in general, as well as its relationship with THC. Now used in a range of medical practices as well as recreationally, CBD has quickly become one of the most popular forms of vape liquid and has led to a whole plethora of supplements across the UK’s various service and pharmaceutical industries.
Of course, with new legislation legalising the use of cannabis in some medical treatments, CBD has quickly come under scrutiny. Many people believe it to be no different from it’s illegal to possess sibling THC, whilst others question the quality of the product itself. Whether you’re thinking of exploring the wide range of UK CBD Capsules out there, or you want to use it in your vape liquids, the myths about CBD could potentially stop you from making the jump.
CBD products and companies aren’t as legitimate as you think
Many early CBD products were working within the grey area of THC criminalisation. This meant that there were some companies that were better than others. Whilst there’s been a lot more development of the industry, there were reports of some companies selling products that had little CBD in them at all. Thankfully, CBD focused companies have been legitimised and the control and restrictions from governments and health and safety watchdogs have meant that many products have now been legitimised.
CBD is the same as THC
Whilst CBD and THC come from the same plant, they have very different effects on the human body. Those who were suspicious of CBD when it first became popular, thought that it would have the same psychotropic effects as THC. Whilst many dry leaf CBD products contain around 0.2 per cent THC, the fact of the matter is that CBD has more subtle effects which don’t cause the drastic mood changes of marijuana.
Another interesting factor is that marijuana extracts containing both THC and CBD can actually see the effects of THC neutralised by CBD’s presence.
There are no real benefits to using CBD
Whilst the effects may be subtle and may take time for you to see a difference, prolonged supplement use has been known to lessen the effects of muscle pain and arthritis, as well as helping to lessen the effects of anxiety and insomnia.
There’s no in-depth research into CBD
Whilst this may have been the case a few years ago, more research is underway, exploring CBD’s benefits in its use in treatments for post-traumatic stress disorder and even depression. Whilst there is no recommended dosage for the use of CBD, user discretion is, of course, advised. With CBD, there’s no one size fits all.
THC has no medical benefits
As mentioned above, cannabidiols links with THC have seen it come under much scrutiny. It’s worth noting that THC in its own right has been known to aid in lessening the side effects of chemotherapy, and even in the treatment of some forms of epilepsy.
