CBD myths solved by CBD experts

At Just Breathe CBD, we strive to be your approachable, trustworthy source of information on all things CBD—without the jargon. 

Continue reading to learn 5 common CBD myths and the truth behind these misconceptions. 


Myth #1: There’s no scientific proof that CBD provides medical benefits. 

Numerous studies have been (and currently are being) conducted to dive deeper into the medical benefits that CBD offers when it’s consumed. 

Research has shown that CBD can help with a variety of physical and mental ailments including: 

And more! 

Along with this research, in 2018, the FDA approved Epidiolex––a CBD-based drug designed to treat seizure disorders [2]. 

Research and personal testimonials have also shown that CBD can help pets with a multitude of mental and physical ailments. 


Myth #2: CBD is non-psychoactive. 

A psychoactive substance is defined as a substance that interacts with your mind and alters your perception, mood, and behaviors.

While CBD doesn’t impair or intoxicate your mind or body or produce the “high” that one would experience when they consume THC, CBD does interact with your mind and body to help both achieve homeostasis.

With CBD, it’s not about what you feel. It’s about what you don’t feel anymore.

Myth #3: All CBD oils are the same.

Not all CBD oils are created equal! The three different types of CBD oils include full spectrum, broad spectrum, and CBD isolate, each of them have different contents and effects. 

There are different ways that companies can source their CBD oil, and that CBD oil can have different contents and additives. Always be sure to research how a company sources their CBD, the contents of their products, and ensure each product has a Certificate of Analysis (COA)

CBD products that are non-GMO, certified organic, and third party lab tested to be free of heavy metals, pesticides, and other harmful chemicals are the best option for you. 


Myth #4: CBD works with the endocannabinoid receptors directly.

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a genetically inherent system that helps regulate various bodily functions. 

While THC interacts directly with your ECS by activating its receptors, CBD is thought to prolong the life of the naturally occurring endocannabinoids in your body––helping them have an increased, lasting impact.


Myth #5: You feel the effects of CBD instantly, and if you don’t, it doesn’t work.

With any natural supplement, consistency is key. To experience the full benefits and effects of CBD, we recommend taking it twice daily, morning and night for a minimum of 30 days. 

It’s also important to clearly establish why you’re taking CBD––this can help you measure its effects and benefits effectively.
