CBD Facts and Myths Debunked
CBD Facts and Explanations

Myth #1: CBD can get you high

CBD will not get you high. Repeat: CBD will not get you high.
While it is a fact that CBD and THC – the chemical compound found in marijuana that is responsible for giving that ‘high’ feeling – are both cannabinoids found in cannabis, they have quite different properties. The most notable being that CBD will not get you high. This is due to the fact that while CBD has the same chemical formula as THC, the atoms are arranged differently. It is this variance that allows THC to create an intoxicating effect where CBD does not.
Note: THC levels above 0.3% in a cannabis plant classify it as being marijuana. Hemp refers to strains of cannabis containing less than 0.3% THC.

Myth #2: CBD is addictive

CBD does not have addictive properties.
Based purely on chemistry, cannabidiol is (a) not physically addictive and (b) will not induce or create any physical withdrawal symptoms upon cessation of use.
While it is true that CBD stimulates your dopamine and serotonin levels, allowing for that ‘feel-good’ factor, this is not in any way a fake or chemically induced high which could lead to addiction.

Myth #3: CBD has been approved for use in food and dietary supplements

Given that CBD is a cannabis product, manufacturers and retailers are not legally allowed to make any medical claims regarding the benefits of using CBD.

Myth #4: CBD oil is non-psychoactive

CBD will not get you high or stoned. Many people equate this with it being non-psychoactive – both lay and scientific people are guilty of this. Technically speaking – or more to the point by dictionary definition – this is not actually true.
CBD does have some effect on the brain. The word “psychoactive” means “affecting the mind”. In this regard, CBD is in fact psychoactive.
Even so, CBD is non-intoxicating. Intoxicating and psychoactive are frequently used as synonyms in the context of drugs, but that is not a correct usage and in this instance tells the wrong story. All intoxicating drugs are psychoactive, but not all psychoactive drugs are intoxicating. CBD is the perfect case of the latter.

Myth #5: CBD won’t show up in a drug test

This is one of those statements where the only possible comeback is “It depends.” It depends on the type of CBD you are taking.
CBD comes in three major types: CBD Isolate; Full Spectrum CBD; and Broad Spectrum CBD.
If you are a CBD user, and your workplace is one where drug testing is a regular occurrence, you are going to want to avoid full spectrum CBD. Here’s why:
Full spectrum CBD is made using the entire plant and does contain trace amounts of THC. Even if these trace amounts are less than the 0.3% which would legally classify it is marijuana, it could still show up in a drug test.


Not only is CBD not addictive – see Myth #2 – it is actually currently being studied for its potential to help with drug and alcohol addiction treatment. In particular, studies are focused on the ability of CBD to minimize the brutal withdrawal symptoms associated with coming clean from drugs like heroin, thus ultimately helping prevent relapses.
