The Myths About CBD OilChristopher Randolph
INspiration Skincare explores scientific research and conclusive lab test reports to separate facts from myths.
1. CBD Oil is Illegal
Despite the many benefits associated with CBD oil, many people are hesitant to purchase skin care products of such nature with the fear that they are not lawful. CBD oil, however, is derived from industrial hemp which is perfectly legal in every state. People assume that CBD oil can only be derived from the cannabis plant which is federally illegal in some states.
2. CBD Oil gets you high
There is a very distinct line between CBD and THC which define the functional basis of the two compounds. CBD serves a variety of purposes but does not cause psychoactive mind-altering reactions. THC, on the other hand, is responsible for getting you high.
3. CBD oil is addictive
CBD oil does not cause compulsive urges to constantly use or create any relapsing disorders. Some studies even suggest that CBD oil works to counter addiction by modulating neuronal circuits that cause constant relapsing disorders.
4. CBD Oil causes fatigue and sleep
CBD oil functions differently from THC creating a state of balance in your body thus helping you at different times of the day. In the morning it elevates your energy levels, keeps you alert and relieves anxiety. In the evening CBD oil has a calming effect which helps you attain better sleep and integrates with your body’s natural process to help you regulate different functions.
5. CBD weakens cognitive functions
On the contrary, CBD enhances cognitive functions creating more focus which aids the learning process, improves memory function and the overall health of your brain. People who have incorporated CBD oil in their daily routine report increased productivity both in their area of work and school.
6. CBD transforms into THC in the stomach
This is another statement that lacks scientific basis. Many reports from clinical trials broadly demonstrate how CBD works with the body’s endocannabinoid system but even when used in high doses CBD will not demonstrate any THC related signs in the body.
7. CBD is not recommended for children
This statement is usually made by people who attach a stigma to CBD since it is directly related to cannabis. CBD is, however, breaking ground in remedying most skin conditions that affect children such as acne, itching, and eczema with no reported side effects.
8. You need a prescription to purchase CBD oil
CBD oil is legal hence one does not need a prescription or any other documentation to obtain CBD products. Federal laws do not restrict the sale of CBD oil.
9. All CBD products are similar
Statements like these in social circles are out of ignorance to the different uses of CBD products. CBD is very versatile in nature and has been diversified to serve multiple health-related and cosmetic functions. Products rich in CBD oil can be found in moisturizers, sprays, creams and so much more.
10. There is no scientific data to back up medical claims about CBD
Since CBD is a compound that has generated a lot of interest with the entire current buzz, multiple scientific groups have taken it upon themselves to validate some of the claims. Extensive clinical trials have been conducted on CBD to test its effectiveness in managing medical conditions such as epilepsy, schizophrenia, anxiety and common skin conditions. With its interaction with the body’s endocannabinoid system, there are numerous scientific reports to support CBD.
