10 Myths About CBD Debunked

by jadams

Deep Thoughts

Robb Vices is excited to bring members our first foray into the Cannabis/CBD market this month, via a super-cool company called Aethics. This brand is geared towards the medicinal, sports recovery properties in CBD, and our members received both a tincture (which we love in cocktails), as well as a lotion, ideal for post-workout sore muscles.

We thought we’d dispel a few myths and misnomers about CBD … clear the air, if you will. (Pun intended). We ourselves weren’t experts until we found Aethics … and found out just how much we enjoy the helpful properties of CBD.

ALL CBD COMES FROM THE MARIJUANA PLANT

FALSE

Cannabidiol, commonly called CBD, is one of the compounds found in the hemp and marijuana plant, which are both strains of the cannabis plant. Aethics products contain CBD derived from hemp grown on their own farm.  They do not use CBD from the marijuana plant.

CBD CAN MAKE YOU PARANOID

FALSE

CBD has been shown to provide relief for many ailments that current and former athletes experience, and that everyone experiences at times. It is commonly used to reduce pain, inflammation (commonly arthritis), anxiety, depression, and sleeplessness.  

IT’S NOT LEGAL IN THE USA

FALSE

Forty-seven states, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico have passed laws that permit the recreational and/or medicinal use of CBD.  Only Idaho, South Dakota and Nebraska have not passed such laws. Because of hemp’s relationship to marijuana, CBD has been burdened by the laws and stigma associated with marijuana, despite the fact that hemp-derived CBD products do not make you high when used as recommended.  The FDA recently approved the use of a CBD-based drug to significantly reduce seizures related to a form of epilepsy.  People often use CBD as an alternative to over-the-counter drugs such as ibuprofen and addicting opioids. 

THESE PRODUCTS WILL GET ME HIGH

FALSE

Aethics CBD is extracted from the hemp plant, not the marijuana plant, and contains 0.3% or less THC, the psychoactive compound found in the marijuana plant that causes a psychoactive effect.  When taken at the recommended dosage level, there is not enough THC present to make you high.

So, with that, we say … rub it on your biceps, splash it in your drink and really get to know the medicinal benefits of Aethics this month. Then, check out their other products online. There’s a lot to love about CBD.
