Busting Some CBD Myths!
Table of Contents
The CBD boom has generated a great deal of interest and intrigue concerning the uses of CBD oil and products containing the biological compound. Many people want to know more about the benefits of CBD and how it can help improve their health and day-to-day lives. With the interest in the advantages of cannabidiol comes speculation about its side effects. For every person that wants to know what it can do for them, there are even more people that do not understand the science behind it and make false or inaccurate claims about CBD.
Does CBD Make You Drowsy?
Sugar and Kush CBD tinctures are used by many people to help them get a better night’s sleep. Personal experience confirms, at least for me, that CBD does help promote better sleep. This is where we should clarify something, promoting better sleep does not mean it makes you drowsy. For those of us that struggle falling asleep, our problems specifically has to do with our brain activity. An overactive brain can manifest itself in the form of anxiety, especially when stressed. CBD helps to reduce that anxiety and slow down the brain allowing for a more conducive situation for sleep. It becomes much easier to fall asleep when your mind isn’t racing a mile a minute thinking about finances, work or relationships. Coupled with the right sleep environment and management of health factors like anxiety or chronic pain, adding CBD into your daily routine is a positive way to achieve better sleep, However, it is important to note that CBD can be used at other times of the day without making you drowsy.
Will CBD Cause Me to Fail A Drug Test?
“Orally administered CBD is well-tolerated in humans. But concerns about possible harmful side effects, which might limit CBD’s therapeutic utility and market potential, were raised by misleading reports that CBD converts to high-causing THC in the stomach. It does not (read the evidence). There have been extensive clinical trials demonstrating that ingested CBD—even doses above 600 mg—does not cause THC-like psychoactive effects. On the contrary, CBD in sufficient amounts can lessen or neutralize the THC high. The World Health Organization studied the issue and gave CBD a clean bill of health in a 2017 report that asserted: 'Simulated gastric fluid does not exactly replicate physiological conditions in the stomach [and] spontaneous conversation of CBD to delta-9-THC has not been demonstrated in humans undergoing CBD treatment.'”
Sugar and Kush uses an independent third party for all CBD lab testing of their products for purity and accuracy. When you review those lab reports, which are easily accessible on the S&K product pages along with the nutritional facts, you’ll see there is THC in their products. It would be nice if the entire industry was equally as transparent with what their products consist of but not all manufacturers think this way. CBD should not cause you to feel high or stoned, and you should not fail a drug test using pure CBD tinctures or any of our products. CBD gummies and edibles may be different ways to consume it but the results should be the same when it comes to cannabidiol.
If you’re thinking about trying a CBD product but have reservations about side effects or other questions, make sure you get the real facts and not assumptions or preconceived notions.
