It’s nearly impossible to go a single day without hearing about CBD oil and CBD products. Cannabidiol, or CBD, has had a tremendous impact on the lives of millions who live with chronic pain, anxiety, depression, stress, PTSD, and more.  But for all the praise CBD receives, it also has its fair share of misinformation. Below, Recovery ReLeaf takes a look at the three biggest misconceptions about CBD oil and sets the record straight.


We thought it would be best to get this one out of the way first since it’s the most common misconception out there. No – CBD oil cannot get you high. The misconception is largely drawn from the source: hemp.

Marijuana and hemp have long been used interchangeably both in name and imagery but in fact, they’re both very different.

FACT: It’s Impossible to Get High Off CBD

Both marijuana and hemp contain hundreds of Cannabinoids but most importantly, (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD). THC is one of the compounds found in marijuana that is responsible for producing a high. Marijuana can contain as much as 30% THC. On the other hand, hemp only contains a maximum of 0.3% THC and a high CBD content. Since industrial hemp is the main crop used to cultivate CBD, it’s is impossible to get high off of CBD products.


While CBD can offer relief, it is often mistaken for a sedative, but this isn’t always true. CBD activates the same receptors that caffeine can activate – the adenosine receptors. In this way, CBD can work as a mild stimulant to some users depending on their chosen serving size. While not necessarily as potent as caffeine, CBD is definitely not a sedative.


Though it’s not strictly a sedative, some CBD products can have a calming effect. It all depends on the strain, oil, and terpenes (naturally occurring scents) used in the product. This is why it’s important that CBD manufacturers distinctly label their products – not all of them are the same – which brings us to our next myth.


Just because a product Is labeled as “CBD”, it doesn’t mean that’s all that’s in the product. Many manufacturers “pad” their product with cheap ingredients and unnatural fillers.


Unlike unknown manufacturers that are here today and gone tomorrow, Recovery ReLeaf products all contain pure cannabidiol and only the highest quality oils available on the market from certified organic farms here in the USA.

CBD doesn’t always have to be in the form of an oil. You’ll find that there is an extremely wide variety of ways to consume CBD for every lifestyle and personal preference. CBD can come in the form of a tasty addition to the day like flavorful, chewable gummies or in the form of a delicious snack like CBD chocolate. Those who vape can also enjoy a convenient CBD oil Vape Kit . Those choosing to stick with the oil can take it sublingually (under the tongue) no tough pills to swallow, in their coffee, in their post workout shake – yes, the uses are limitless!

CBD can also be seamlessly incorporated into your health and beauty routine. CBD face serum for example, offers the calming effects of CBD as well as protecting and moisturizing your face for a soft, supple feeling. CBD can be used as a general skin moisturizer.  and even as a pain-relieving muscle cream.
