CBD is a great cannabinoid, reported to be capable of treating the symptoms of a variety of conditions. There’s evidence that shows CBD can have a positive impact on easing the symptoms of complex conditions such as fibromyalgia,sleep disorders, muscle spasticity and more.

Over the past couple of years, CBD has become so prominent in the U.S. that it’s now being added into all sorts of things, from supplements to pet products. While many believe the benefits of CBD are certainly there, some companies are stretching them in far-fetched directions.

It’s not a miracle cannabinoid, and it helps to have this mentality when first seeking it out. Here are four things CBD won’t help a person achieve in 2022.

It won’t replace medicine

While CBD might help treat symptoms of a condition, it’s not medicine and it likely won’t resolve a medical condition on its own. Claims that CBD helps reduce anxiety and improve sleep might have some merit, but claims that CBD cures cancer do not.

It won’t cure everything that affects a person

There’s some evidence indicating CBD is helpful for treating anxiety, inflammation and some forms of pain. Depending on the method of consumption, it can be ingested orally or applied topically, targeting different areas of the body.

Do some research before purchasing CBD, having a firm grasp of exactly why it’s being bought and whether or not it will be effective. Ensure to be extra careful considering how crowded and confusing the CBD market is.

CBD won’t make a user high

If looking to get high, look elsewhere. While CBD can make a user feel, which is very pleasant, it’s not a psychoactive compound, meaning that the consumer’s head will stay in its place.

Still, a variety of CBD products contain small amounts of THC in order to boost their effects; if a lot of these are consumed, a person might feel a bit of a buzz.

It might not have any affect at first

CBD functions differently than THC; it needs to build up in the body before a person experiences its full range of effects. The first time it’s used, a consumer might not experience an effect at all.

Play around with CBD, keeping track of its effects and giving it a few days of use, and playing around with the dosage.
