5 Cannabis Myths Debunked: What You Need to Know

Cannabis is legal in 18 states and has quickly become a beloved recreational drug. You may have seen your friends partake in it and might even be intrigued.

For some, curiosity gets the best of them, and they’ll try it regardless, while some would hesitate. Contrary to popular belief, curiosity didn’t kill the cat. Fear-mongering PSAs may have you thinking this is a heinous drug that makes people commit violent acts.

As with everything, there are myths about cannabis as well.

Myth #1: Munchies Aren’t Real

Cannabis won’t make you sacrifice a goat to Satan, but you can get a bit more hungry than usual. You already know what we’re talking about. The Munchies.

If you don’t, despite its name sounding like one, it isn’t a kid’s movie. According to a study conducted on the effects of cannabis, it can impact the brain’s hypothalamus, which causes hunger pangs.

So, munchies? Very real.

Myth #2: Weed Isn’t as Strong as It Was

Myths about things neither helps user nor critics. You’re just stuck in an endless cycle of whose right/wrong. Since it’s so widespread now, people have the misconception that it isn’t as strong as before.

Instead, the concentration of THC might be higher than ever. There has been selective breeding in plants to produce cannabis with higher THC levels. Be careful of the concentration when you buy a CBD product. The key is to know your limits.

Myth #3: All Weed Products are the Same

There are two known strains of cannabis: Indica and Sativa. Scientists can’t seem to agree on whether there are more. Dispensaries offer both or a hybrid strain that claims to have the effects from them. However, there is yet to be a credible study on the difference between the two.

Myth #4: Synthetic Weed is Safer

Wrong. Also, very wrong. Synthetic weed is widely known as K2, spice, and other nicknames can be up to 600 times stronger than natural weed. It also needs to go through a safe manufacturing process.

There are chances that toxic chemicals were used in its production as well. The DEA has also banned this and labeled it as “not safe for human consumption”. Even in states where marijuana is legal, avoid anyone who says synthetic weed is safe to take.

Myth #5: Overdosing on Weed Isn’t Possible

You can even overdose on candy, so overdosing on weed is entirely possible. Fortunately, it won’t kill you. Firstly, we need to understand what overdose means. It’s taking more than a recommended amount.

Symptoms of weed overdose are:

  • Anxiety
  • Paranoia
  • Headaches
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Loss of Coordination
  • Dizziness
