Never has there been a plant surrounded by as much controversy as Cannabis sativa. Years of prohibition and a ton of false information have led to many untruths about both hemp and marijuana. As wildly beneficial as CBD is, there are still some falsehoods circulating about the popular cannabinoid.

We’re here to clear up some of the confusion surrounding CBD. Separate myth from fact, so to speak. Let’s take a look at some of the myths surrounding CBD so you can have a better understanding of this beneficial cannabinoid once and for all.

Top 5 Myths About CBD

1. CBD Gets You High

Because CBD is sourced from cannabis, it’s often assumed that it produces a psychoactive effect when consumed. There’s a big difference between CBD and THC, however. Check it out.

While both CBD and THC are sourced from the cannabis plant, CBD is typically derived from hemp, and THC is derived from marijuana. Both hemp and marijuana are different types of cannabis, but both do not produce the psychoactive effects that are commonly associated with cannabis.

Why not, though?

It all comes down to the way each cannabinoid interacts with the body. The reason THC gets you “high” is that it binds to the CB1 cannabinoid receptors, which is found in abundance in the several brain regions and in lower amounts in widespread areas throughout the body. CB1 receptors mediate many of the psychoactive effects of specific cannabinoids.

CBD, however, is different. Yes, it’s an active cannabinoid found in cannabis. But unlike THC, it has little binding affinity to the CB1 receptor. Basically, CBD doesn’t get you high because it doesn’t bind to the receptor responsible for making you high.

2. There Isn’t Enough Scientific Evidence to Support CBD

When CBD was initially found to reduce seizures in rare forms of childhood epilepsy, there was little to no scientific evidence to back it up. As more and more discovered the therapeutic benefits of the non-psychoactive cannabinoid, however, research ensued in earnest.

Today, there are more studies than ever before that support the myriad of benefits CBD contains.

The most widely studied area of the effects of CBD is likely its ability to reduce seizures associated with intractable childhood and adolescent epilepsy. Since 2013, there have been 10 epilepsy centers in America that have conducted research regarding the effectiveness of CBD to treat epilepsy. In 2018, a version of CBD known as Epidiolex was approved by the government for the treatment of seizures for those suffering from seizures associated with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome, two rare and intractable forms of epilepsy.

In a 2018 study of CBD users, it was determined that consumers are using CBD as a specific therapy for “multiple diverse medical conditions.” Particularly, these include pain, anxiety, depression and sleep problems.

Is there evidence to back this up, though? Following are a few studies that support the reported benefits of cannabidiol.

  • A 2015 study found that “existing preclinical evidence strongly supports CBD as a treatment for generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder when administered acutely.”
  • Another 2015 study showed that “topical CBD application has therapeutic potential for relief of arthritis pain-related behaviors and inflammation without evident side effects.”
  • A 2014 study found that CBD reduces paclitaxel-induced neuropathy, a potentially serious complication that can prevent patients from receiving their full chemotherapy treatment. Paclitaxel can cause nerve damage that results in symptoms such as pain, tingling and numbness.

While more research and clinical studies are undoubtedly needed, there is already quite a bit of scientific evidence to support some of the reported benefits of CBD. With the recent passing of the 2018 Farm Bill that ultimately legalized hemp and hemp-derived products (such as CBD), more research into the benefits of CBD will undoubtedly occur.

3. CBD Won’t Show Up in a Drug Test

Like we mentioned earlier, there is a ton of misinformation circulating about CBD. One myth we’d like to dispel once and for all is that CBD won’t show up in a drug test.

Anyone who is interested in taking CBD should be aware that many CBD products made from hemp contain trace amounts of THC (less than 0.3%) that could, although it’s unlikely, show up in a urinalysis. This would most likely occur when taking a very large amount of “full spectrum” CBD products, as they are made from the whole plant and contain trace amounts of various cannabinoids, including THC. Of course, CBD extracted from the marijuana plant will be much more likely to contain larger amounts of THC.

This has led to the creation of CBD isolate, a product where all traces of THC have been removed through an additional purification process.

At Joy Organics, we believe everyone should be able to enjoy CBD without worrying about trace amounts of THC showing up in a drug test. This is why our proprietary extraction and purification process removes all traces of THC, while maintaining the preservation of the beneficial terpenes, flavonoids and other phytocannabinoids that work in harmony to create what is known as the entourage effect. This way, we can offer a full spectrum oil, completely free of THC.

Are you someone regularly drug tested for work or any other reason? If so, keep in mind that some CBD products could test positive for THC. To avoid this, be sure you’re using a product created with CBD isolate or a full spectrum product where all THC has been removed.

4. Taking More CBD is Better to Achieve Desired Effects

There are plenty of situations where bigger is better. Taking CBD, however, isn’t one of them. There’s a common assumption that taking a bigger serving of CBD is best to achieve the desired effects.

When it comes to taking CBD, everyone is different. CBD works for you individually to restore balance to whatever imbalance you’re experiencing. Finding what serving size works best for you should be done by taking smaller amounts of CBD until you find exactly how much to take.

Here’s the thing. There’s no “magic” serving size of CBD that works for everyone. There are several factors that will determine how much CBD you should take, including age, sex, weight and why exactly you’re taking it.

The idea that “more is better,” however, is just one of the many myths that surround CBD.

5. All CBD is Created Equal

CBD is CBD, no matter where it comes from, right? Wrong.

Not all CBD is created equal. And if you’re someone interested in using CBD, this is something vital to understand. Up until now, CBD has been a completely unregulated industry. This means that anyone can sell CBD oil and say it’s the best, when it’s really anything but.

Here’s something else. Hemp is one of several plants that employs a technique known as phytoremediation. This means that it absorbs whatever is present in the soil it’s planted in, including toxins, contaminants and the like. Hemp is so adept at phytoremediation that it has been planted at the Chernobyl nuclear disaster site to absorb radioactive waste from the soil.

When purchasing CBD products, it’s vital that the hemp used to produce the oil is grown in nutrient-rich, organic soil. It’s also important to ensure that any products you buy have been third-party tested for quality. When it comes to CBD, not all products are created equal. This is an industry where transparency is everything. The companies who claim to have the highest quality products will have the lab results to prove it.

    “Wonderful Group to work with. Everything from fantastic products, prices, customer support, beautiful packaging to fast, friendly service. Joy Organics is family and feels like family! And why it is included in my line of ‘Paulines Preferred’.”

    Pauline / Paulines Preferred

     

    “People on CBD related FB pages have messaged me asking what company I decided to go with. Of course I tell them Joy Organics! We all had miserable experiences that ranged from not receiving all items ordered to lackluster customer service. I couldn’t take it any longer so I did a Google search and that’s when I came across Todd’s videos on YouTube. I was totally blown away by his honesty on what to look for in a CBD supplier and the obstacles to watch out for along the way. Most importantly, how to get approved for a merchant account! Not to mention the customer is always right philosophy. Becca and Alyx are prompt to answer any emails. I couldn’t ask for a better support team and that’s why I will continue doing business with Joy Organics.”

  • OUR UNIQUE PROCESS

    Joy’s processes ensure that her products provide an effective solution while remaining at an affordable price point.

    Each of our hemp oil droplets is between 4 to 200 times smaller than the industry standard. This means that they’re more easily absorbed into the blood whether consumed orally or applied to the skin.

    Our solution was to create a water-soluble nanoemulsion technology. This patent-pending technology transforms active compounds into nano-sized emulsions.

    Our highly bioavailable products are not only extremely effective, they’re also extremely economical. You’ll get the same results from a much smaller amount of what we create than you would from our competitors. This is better for you and your wallet.

  • JOY’S STORY

    Joy is a wife, mom and grandmother. As a self-proclaimed “health nut”, her story begins in a place that many of us know very well – persistent pain and trouble sleeping.

    While researching natural solutions, Joy learned of the benefits of CBD and began trying the top brands.

    What she found was distressing: only one of the seven biggest CBD oil brands gave her the relief she desired.

    After more research, the answer became obvious. Today’s CBD oil industry is a mess. There is minimal government oversight. No enforcement of false label claims and a huge variety of ineffective extraction and delivery methods.

    As Joy’s frustration grew, so did her passion for creating a product people could trust. She then put together her team to create the most pure, organic, and bioavailable THC-free full spectrum hemp oil on the market.
