Is there one lie that is bigger than another? I believe there is at least there is one that irritates me more than others. Do you know what it is? Well, read on!
Revealing the Myths About the Hemp Flower – Hemp is Weed
A young man had a conversation with me during our lunch break as we were sub teaching at the local high school. He mentioned that he had injured his leg at the gym and was in considerable pain. I, of course, told him my story and when I mentioned CBD hemp, his eyes rolled and he interrupted me that he knew my generation indulged in smoking weed and had all the hilarity that went with it. I tried to tell him that hemp is cannabis but it is non-psychotic because of the extremely low THC. But he had his mind made up and continued his rant about “my generation”.
CBD and THC are both cannabinoids, but they are different, just like CBG is different than CBD and so is CBC. Cannabis marijuana contains very small amounts of CBD while having a high content of THC tagging it with the slang “weed”. However, Cannabis hemp is rich in CBD but has very little THC. Most of the CBD on the market comes hemp because there is a higher content so why not.
Weed is generally considered to be marijuana so even though marijuana has a small percentage of CBD, most of the CBD comes from hemp which is not considered to be weed. Hemp is NOT weed and it does not give a psychoactive high. That being said, hemp flower is used recreational as it relaxes and some strains give a mild sedation but never a couch lock; a jovial socialness but never out-of-control high.
Revealing the Myths About the Hemp Flower — CBD Requires a Prescription
CBD and all its products are considered “alternative medicine” or “over-the-counter”. There is no requirement for a prescription except for the one drug made with CBD called Epidiolex. Otherwise, CBD is widely available in chain stores, by independent distributors or in dispensaries like Dr. Strains CBD.
If you have a drug test, CBD will not show up on it because there is no drug test for CBD.
Revealing the Myths About the Hemp Flower — Hemp is Addictive
One more myth to debunk is the fact that some say hemp is addictive. These myths of CBD hemp flower are proven by anyone who has dosed with CBD in whatever fashion. Marijuana, high in THC, is addictive and intoxicating.
Cannabis was non psychoactive in the beginning then some researchers and scientist decided to reengineer some strains to be high in THC because they were looking for the “high”. The non-engineered strains remained low in THC and came under the name of hemp.
Revealing the Myths About the Hemp Flower — CBD Works by Activating Cannabinoid Receptors
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is an essential part of our body. It could be referred to as a signaling system that helps keep the body in balance or homeostasis. When we get sick, have an injury or disease, the neurotransmitters have been disrupted so there may be a problem with healing.
When you take CBD, it interacts with the network of CB receptors in your ECS. CBD hemp flower enables the neurotransmitters to send the right signal at the right time. CBD can also minimize the effect THC may have on the receptors. The receptors can in some instances, turn down the activity level on the receptor by inhibiting the breakdown and transport of the endocannabinoid referred to as anandamide.
“Myth It” Last
Challenge the myths of CBD flower is important when you are attempting to talk your friend down off the cliff of “Hemp is psychoactive because it is cannabis!” Even though hemp has been legal now for 3 to 4 years, some people still cannot distinguish between is cannabis hemp and cannabis marijuana. Hopefully, you will be able to point them to the truth that hemp has a life-saving element about it that is not present in marijuana.
