With CBD making major headlines for its life-changing effects, it is no surprise that a lot of people are clamoring for it. It would seem to be a good thing – all this attention on a compound which science has just recently discovered to have significant medical potential with wide spread applications.
Trouble is, novices to cannabis therapeutics seem to think this is something new to cannabis. And rather than legitimating that cannabis has great medical value, legislators want to divorce CBD from the plant without understanding how it works and ignoring decades of research on THC, which has a proven track record for helping people with life-threatening and chronic conditions.

I, who raised CBD and made CBD rich oil before anyone I knew, am too often in the position of explaining to cannabis novices that their understanding of cannabis therapeutics is quite flawed.
Here are the top three myths about CBD that they have encountered:
Myth #1: CBD is what most people seeking cannabis therapeutics need.
Myth #2: CBD is the main cancer-fighting compound in cannabis
Myth #3: CBD is not psychoactive.
