Let’s Get Real.
The CBD industry is blown…we’re talking fifty new companies overnight blown. And between all the products, claims & information out there, we understand how difficult it can be to distinguish the true from the false, the fact from the fiction. Well, we’re here to set the record straight.
We didn’t join the cannabis industry to make a quick buck—we joined because we care about people. oHHo aims to cut through the confusion, so let’s start by debunking the top 5 myths surrounding CBD once and for all.
CBD Isn’t Psychoactive
CBD is non-intoxicating and does not cause euphoria (meaning no high), but it IS psychoactive. A psychoactive chemical that is ingested, results in causing temporary changes in mood, perception, consciousness or behavior. CBD has been shown to have modulating effects on psychosis, anxiety, seizures, inflammation, pain, memory, appetite and other brain activity.
CBD Isn’t Legal in All 50 States
The 2018 Farm Bill made hemp derived products federally legal across the whole of the United States. However, Arizona, Idaho, Nebraska, South Dakota and Texas have not fully adopted this law change.
CBD Only Works In Massive Doses
It’s true that treating Dravet epilepsy requires relatively high levels of pharmaceutical grade CBD (10–12 mg/kg per day). However, when treating anxiety or inflammation, much lower doses have proven to do the trick. Efficacy of CBD is increased with a full spectrum extract.
CBD is Sedative
CBD is NOT a sedative. Sedative effects are more likely to result as a consequence of reduced anxiety, inflammation & pain or because of a specific terpene presence such as Myrcene.
CBD Turns into THC in the Body
CBD actually modulates the effects of THC. The less desirable aspects of getting high such as paranoia, nausea, and fake pains, are lessened by the presence of CBD. The World Health Organization considers CBD to be a safe product for human consumption of up to 600mg doses. In regards to CBD turning into THC once ingested, WHO stated that,“…spontaneous conversion of CBD to delta-9-THC has not been demonstrated in humans undergoing CBD treatment.”
