    myths cbd oil
    There are numerous myths and misconceptions about CBD oil. In our article, we introduce you to the 5 most common myths about CBD oil so that you are better informed. Have fun while reading!

    Myth 1: "All CBD oils are the same"

    All types of coffee are not created equal, are they? Cannabidiol is a complex natural substance that, in addition to cannabidiol, contains a wide range of useful plant molecules such as terpenes, flavonoids and other cannabinoids.

    CBD oils from different plant sources often have very different ingredients - even if both oils contain the same dose of CBD. That means: Different CBD oils can affect your body in different ways.

    Tip: When choosing your CBD oil, pay attention to the source of the CBD (for example hemp or cannabis) and the type of CBD oil. In many cases, a so-called full spectrum CBD oil is the best choice - such oils contain the entire range of different cannabinoids and valuable botanicals of the hemp plant.

    Myth 2: "CBD works like THC only without intoxication"

    This is a common misconception. CBD works very differently than THC because it interacts differently with the body's endocannabinoid system and affects our body in different ways. From serotonin and pain receptors to enzymes.

    Myth 3: "The effect of CBD oil has not been proven"

    It is correct: Research on CDB is still in its infancy and the exact way in which CBD works for various ailments needs further research.

    Even so, there are countless studies that have examined CBD and its effects on the human body. In the USA, for example, CBD is an approved drug for the treatment of epileptic seizures in children. There are also studies on CBD and physical pain, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, neurodermatitis or chronic pain.

    Myth 4: "More CBD is better"

    This is wrong for a variety of reasons:

    • Products with higher CBD content may be less effective than full-spectrum CBD products with less CBD but more terpenes and other cannabinoids.

    • How you take CBD also affects how it works. If you just swallow your CBD oil, the CBD will pass through your digestive tract without entering your bloodstream. Swirling CBD oil around in your mouth for a minute before swallowing has a better effect - even if the dose is lower.

    • According to clinical studies, very high doses (1,000+ mg / day) increase the risk of side effects such as tiredness, decreased appetite, or digestive problems. Once the dose was cut in half to 500 mg per day (which is still a huge amount) the side effects decreased.

    Myth 5: "CBD works within a few hours"

    Don't expect miracles overnight. For some people, CBD may actually improve symptoms immediately - but these are rather exceptional cases. If this is your first time trying CBD, you probably won't feel a thing at first. Often, CBD has to be taken for several days or weeks until the first changes are noticeable.

    Tip: Determine beforehand why you are taking CBD. Then, over time, watch how your symptoms develop. It is best to keep a CBD diary, where you record the time, dosage and effect.
