Myths About CBD
If you haven’t noticed by now, CBD is becoming more and more prevalent. But despite its rise in popularity, there still seems to be a lot of myths and misconceptions out there. A big part of that is due to all the bad players out in the market misleading consumers. Well, I’m here to set the record straight and address some common myths about CBD.
Marijuana and Hemp are the Same
A lot of people are afraid of trying CBD because they think it’s marijuana. While I can see where the confusion may come from, I can assure you they are not the same.
First of all, Nature’s Ultra CBD comes from industrial hemp. But you’ll need to know the difference between hemp and marijuana to set your mind at ease. Hemp gets confused for marijuana all the time because they both originate from the cannabis plant. the biggest difference between the two is their composition. While both hemp and marijuana contain different cannabinoids (including CBD), marijuana naturally has a higher amount of THC, while hemp naturally has a higher amount of CBD. In case you didn’t know, THC is the compound in the cannabis plant that’s associated with getting high.
It’s the THC that gets most people concerned, which leads me to the next myth.
All CBD Will Get You High
Not all CBD is created equal. That’s why it’s important to get your CBD from a reputable source. Like I mentioned before, there are a lot of bad players out there who don’t like to disclose what they put in their product. So you can be taking a CBD product that you think is THC free, only to find out it’s not. CBD from Nature’s Ultra contains 0.0% THC so you don’t have to worry about getting high.
You Need a Prescription to Use CBD
This goes back to the confusion between marijuana and hemp. In some parts of the country, you need a prescription to purchase and use marijuana. However, thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, CBD products that contain less than 0.3% THC are legal at the federal level. This means you can use Nature’s Ultra CBD products with no problem. That said, you still want to be mindful of your state’s laws or employer’s guidelines regarding the use of CBD products.
Using More CBD is Better
I can see where someone might think that using more CBD might be better than using less, but that’s just not the case. everyone is different when using CBD, That’s why the optimal amount of CBD to use is up to you. It may require some trial and error to get it dialed in, but it’s all about understanding what your body needs. I always say to start low and go high and observe what to do next.
All CBD Products Are The Same
I mentioned this before – not all CBD is created equal. There are shady characters out there that either don’t do their due diligence or just don’t care that they are misleading people. That’s why you get products out there that are marketed as CBD but are in fact just hemp oil. Or products that say they don’t have THC, but actually do.
That’s why you need to purchase from a reputable source that’s transparent and provides the highest quality product on the market. When it comes to your wellness, you shouldn’t settle for less.
