3 Misconceptions About CBD

Why is everyone talking about CBD?

There's no way around it, this year has been extremely stressful for everyone.

So it makes sense to hear that many people have turned to CBD as a way to help them deal with all the craziness.
But some are still hesitant to try CBD because they've read some misleading information on the internet.
We'll break it all down for you...

1. It will make you feel 'high'

CBD doesn’t make you feel euphoric and is considered extremely safe.
CBD has been shown1 to counteract the psychoactivity of THC - the component of marijuana that makes you feel “high.”
CBD binds with your serotonin-producing receptors that are known to regulate anxiety-reducing behaviors and stimulates GABA receptors which are responsible for calming the nervous system.

2. It will make you feel very groggy

CBD does not make you feel dizzy or tired at all. In fact, it can actually make you more alert.
CBD relaxes1 your mind and body to help you feel more calm and collected.
Although it doesn't make you feel sleepy, some people prefer to take CBD right before bed to keep their mind from racing and help them get a better night's rest.

3. "I didn't feel anything"

If you've tried CBD before and didn't feel any of the intended effects, this is most likely because you didn't take enough.
Everyone responds differently1 to different size doses. You also need to take into account your reasonings for taking CBD as you may need to take it regularly for a few weeks to feel the effects.
First-time users should try and focus on what they're NOT feeling, instead of what they are.
The key is finding the right dose and product for you...
