CBD MYTHS & MISCONCEPTIONS With the growing awareness of CBD as a potential health aid there’s also been a proliferation of misconceptions. Find questions and responses to common misinformation. BY MARTIN A. LEE ON FEBRUARY 18, 2015 (UPDATED ON FEBRUARY 2, 2019) Updated: February 2, 2019 It doesn’t get you high, but it’s causing quite a buzz among medical scientists and patients. The past year has seen a surge of interest in cannabidiol (CBD), a non-intoxicating cannabis compound with significant therapeutic properties. Numerous commercial start-ups and internet retailers have jumped on the CBD bandwagon, touting CBD derived from hemp as the next big thing, a miracle oil that can shrink tumors, quell seizures, and ease chronic pain—without making people feel “stoned.” But along with a growing awareness of cannabidiol as a potential health aid there has been a proliferation of misconceptions about CBD. #1 “CBD IS MEDICAL. THC IS RECREATIONAL.” Project CBD receives many inquiries from around the world and oftentimes people say they are seeking “CBD, the medical part” of the plant, “not THC, the recreational part” that gets you high. Actually, THC, “The High Causer,” has awesome therapeutic properties. Scientists at the Scripps Research Center in San Diego reported that THC inhibits an enzyme implicated in the formation of  amyloid beta plaque, the hallmark of Alzheimer’s-related dementia. The federal government recognizes single-molecule THC (Marinol) as an anti-nausea compound and appetite booster, deeming it a Schedule III pharmaceutical, a category reserved for drugs with little abuse potential. But whole plant cannabis, which is the only natural source of THC, continues to be classified as a dangerous Schedule I drug with no medical value. #2 “THC IS THE BAD CANNABINOID. CBD IS THE GOOD CANNABINOID.”  The drug warrior’s strategic retreat: Give ground on CBD while continuing to demonize THC. Diehard marijuana prohibitionists are exploiting the good news about CBD to further stigmatize high-THC cannabis, casting tetrahydrocannabinol as the bad cannabinoid, whereas CBD is framed as the good cannabinoid. Why? Because CBD doesn’t make you feel high like THC does. Project CBD categorically rejects this moralistic, reefer madness dichotomy in

CBD oil has become one of the world’s most talked about and studied remedies for a host of medical and psychological conditions. Vast amounts of evidence show it to be beneficial in the treatment of pain, inflammation, diseases, and mental disorders of all types. It is safe, legal in most regions, and it works. Scientists have discovered another transmission system beyond neurotransmitters that is equally important for the proper health and functioning of humans. It is called the endocannabinoid system, and it plays an integral role in our daily lives, affecting everything from mood, appetite, pain perception, fertility and much more. Our bodies already have cannabinoids and cannabinoid receptors as part of this system, but sometimes, just as neurotransmitters malfunction, our cannabinoid system malfunctions as well. It turns out that certain plants have cannabinoids as well, called phytocannabinoids, which originate from marijuana and hemp. When phytocannabinoids are introduced into the human body, they go to work in remarkable ways to keep our bodies in a state of optimum health. Dustin Sulak, a DO in Maine and Massachusetts, has written a beneficial article that has more in-depth information to help you learn about the vital role of the endocannabinoid system. Understanding The Differences Between Cannabis And Marijuana A key to finding the correct CBD oil for you lies in understanding the differences between oil that is derived from hemp and oil that is derived from marijuana. Both hemp and marijuana can be used to describe the species of plant known as Cannabis Sativa. The difference between them exists in how they are grown and used. Terms like cannabis, cannabinoids, cannabidiol, and CBD oil can be confusing for consumers looking for a product to help them with healing. We will try and clear up a little bit of that confusion.
