There was an article recently in the Guardian talking about CBD being a scam. With CBD making claims on a number of different health conditions and ailments, you may too be wondering, is CBD a scam. Will CBD really be able to help with my anxiety, depression and epilepsy? The thing is, sadly, some CBD is a scam. However, we can help you to avoid wasting your money on poor products.
Is CBD a scam?
There are 117 cannabinoids in the cannabis plant, one of which is CBD. Even though this comes from the cannabis plant it won’t get you high. It contains trace amounts of THC if any.
For thousands of years, CBD has been used as alternative medicine. People have used it to help with pain, inflammation, menstrual cramps, menopause, depression, cancer, anxiety, sleep disorders and more. However, substances masquerading as CBD won’t work. It might even give you more health concerns, especially if it contains Spice.
What is Spice?
Spice, known as the zombie drug, is a mix of herbs and laboratory made chemicals which have mind altering effects. Not something you want to get mixed up in. People who use this synthetic cannabinoid have found the following symptoms:
- Altered perception
- Fast heart rate
- Nervousness and anxiety
- Suicidal thoughts
When you are using CBD to help battle anxiety, nausea and depression having Spice by accident won’t do much good at all.
How do I know that CBD isn’t a scam?
Your best bet is to buy CBD oil, e-juice, flowers and everything else from a reputable retailer. You need one who is willing to share certificate of analysis and detailed information about the product. At CBDStar we will happily share all the information with you about any of our products. We are very transparent.
If you ask a CBD seller for the certificate of analysis for their products and they are unable to show you, run a mile!
