The stigma concerning cannabidiol (CBD) oil is still a large part of present-day society. Although more and more people are turning to CBD products to treat specific ailments and their symptoms, there still seems to be a lot of confusion about the truth of CBD use.
The global cannabidiol market size was valued at USD 2.8 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 21.2% from 2021 to 2028, according to the latest industry analysis. Due to its healing properties, the demand for cannabidiol (CBD) for health and wellness purposes is high, which is the primary factor driving the market growth.
As the industry has increased the market and reached new highs every year, people are still concerned with using the product for various reasons. Unfortunately, many of the reasons behind their avoidance are due to common myths and misconceptions about CBD.

CBD Myths Debunked
Myth #1: CBD Can Make You High
This is a common myth about cannabidiol and its effect. CBD oil does not get anyone high as CBD is a non-intoxicating, non-psychoactive cannabinoid containing no more than 0.03 percent of THC.
Myth #2: CBD Is Illegal
CBD products and consumption is legal in Canada, which means it has been regulated under the Cannabis Act since October 2018, and you do not need a prescription to buy it.
Myth #3: CBD Is Sedating
CBD does not cause a sedating effect when used in the correct dosage. In fact, moderate doses of CBD can provide a mild energizing effect. When ingested in moderate amounts, CBD can help reduce the anxiety effect allowing you to relax, concentrate and sleep better.
Myth #4: Higher CBD Doses Work Better Than Lower Doses
The ideal dosage of CBD is very individual and particular for each person and each organism. Several factors influence the dosage of CBD, often based on the individual’s body weight and some other factors. It is recommended to start with a low dose to see how the individual’s body reacts and increase when (and if) necessary.
Myth #5: CBD Is Addictive
There is no evidence that CBD is addictive in any way. In fact, there is evidence that shows that CBD may block the addictive effects of some painkillers by reducing the pleasure the body feels when taking such medications.
Myth #6: CBD Is Only For Adults
CBD is not only good for adults but also used to help children to treat many ailments and symptoms. CBD helps children regulate their emotions, helping to calm them down and focus. It also allows children to cope better with stress and anxiety, helping them to relax.
