Top 4 Common CBD Myths Misconceptions, Misunderstandings, and Marketing

CBD, otherwise known as Cannabidiol, is fast becoming the focal point of progressive medical research. But aside from the men in white coats, people at home, as well as lawmakers, are becoming increasingly interested in the subject of CBD. Whether you’ve seen it on the shelves of your local health store, or in your email inbox topping the local news. There is plenty of speculation about this cannabinoid, and with any new media topper, there is plenty of misinformation circling the web. So, it goes without saying, don’t believe everything that you read. While CBD has been deemed a safe compound by the WHO, the same can’t be said for circulating information. The internet is awash with misinformation, misconceptions, and myths.

Let’s take a look at a few about CBD that you may have heard.

Top 4 CBD Myths

1. CBD is sedating (always)

CBD Oil for SleepPerhaps some of the most important myths about CBD are its effects. One such myth is that CBD has a sedative effect, no matter what. Here’s the thing; CBD’s effects depend on the dose, among other factors. CBD supports a more wakeful state in moderate doses. In contrast, CBD supports a more relaxed and sedative state in higher doses. Different types of cannabis flowers will have varying cannabinoid and terpene profiles. If a particular cannabinoid profile is rich in CBD, then that particular flower will be more supportive of a sedative state. But not all the credit should be given to CBD. Terpenes also support a more sleepy state, particularly the Myrcene terpene. Anxiety is one of the prime suspects for sleep loss and terpenes like Myrcene can help the body achieve better sleeping patterns by supporting a sense of calm.

But, where did this myth of CBD being solely sedative come from? Well, it could be because strains high in CBD are typically paired with high levels of the Myrcene terpene.

2. CBD is a marketing scam

This myth is for all the cynical-minded out there. And when it comes to seeing through clever marketing schemes, a cynical mind is a weapon. But when misplaced, cynicism steers you away from reality. And the reality with CBD is that while it may be a controversial subject, and while it may be fraught with clever marketing phrases, it is more than just a marketing scam. The reality is the wellness industry is not always about wellness, it’s about making a profit too. CBD has taken the wellness industry by storm, and there are certainly hopeful entrepreneurs jumping on the bandwagon. Some brands are jumping on the bandwagon by incorporating the trending cannabinoid into all types of products. In some areas, the cannabinoid can be effective, but in others, it is pointless other than to sell more products because it contains CBD.

But just because companies are using CBD for the sole reason of generating more income, doesn’t mean it is solely a marketing scam. The point is this, you need to be able to identify a quality CBD product and a trustworthy company that can stand behind their products. Here at Canzon, we use intelligent formulations to ensure you get the most out of the cannabinoid. The body is, when at peak health, designed for perfection in the form of balance. When something goes wrong in the body, signals are sent to regulate and bring it back into balance. But sometimes we need a little support. CBD can be that supportive ingredient for the body and mind. The trick is to weed through the sea of CBD products and find a brand that puts your health and wellness above profits. But don’t worry, you’ve already found yourself here at Canzon where our products are designed to be the ultimate in the CBD field.

So, the takeaway from this myth is this: don’t diminish the entire CBD industry. Just because there are a couple of bad eggs, doesn’t mean the entirety of CBD is a scam.

3. CBD can get you high

This is one of the most controversial misconceptions involving CBD. It is misleading to say that CBD is not a psychoactive compound. Instead, CBD is non-intoxicating. The confusion comes when distinguishing the difference between CBD and THC. It is correct to say CBD is not a psychoactive compound like THC, as nature has not designed CBD to have the same psychoactive effects. To use a more colloquial term, CBD cannot cause the ‘stone’ that is associated with THC use.

But just because companies are using CBD for the sole reason of generating more income, doesn’t mean it is solely a marketing scam. The point is this, you need to be able to identify a quality CBD product and a trustworthy company that can stand behind their products. Here at Canzon, we use intelligent formulations to ensure you get the most out of the cannabinoid. The body is, when at peak health, designed for perfection in the form of balance.

4. All CBD is made and produced the same way

This myth needs to be debunked with a loud and resounding slap of truth. Not all CBD is created equally. Much like centuries ago in medieval society, there are the plebs of the CBD industry. And there are the upper-class premiums. It’s essential to know what makes a CBD product a premium product. Take a look at the Canzon products to see what makes a premium CBD product, well, premium. Firstly, it’s essential to know where the CBD was sourced, and how the CBD product was produced. And it’s not just about being a CBD snob, it’s about your safety. 

We ensure our products are the best in the industry by following these protocols:

  • Independent, third-party test results
    All CBD products need to be tested by licensed independent labs.
  • Organic Ingredients
    All CBD is sourced from organic farms. Other botanical ingredients also have a heavy lean on organic sources.
  • Clear Labeling
    CBD products should have concise, clear labeling. The total CBD milligrams should be easily visible and the ingredient lists should be clear and the third-party reports will reflect the same as the label. Dosing is also a critical component of the label.

There are a plethora of CBD products on the market. The defining differences may not be so apparent, but once you look a little deeper, they are glaringly obvious.

When you’re trying to wade through the sea of products out there, you should always opt for quality and safety. Here at Canzon, it is simple to review the third party reports and the heavy reliance on organic ingredients shows our commitment to providing the market with premium CBD that helps the industry grow from strength to strength, creating a glaringly obvious gap between the poorly produced for profit, and the premium products for ultimate wellness.
