There’s no shortage of misconceptions and myths surrounding cannabis products, especially when it comes to recreational and medical cannabis dispensaries. People may conjure up images of dingy basement clubs, illicit trade, and unregulated consumption. However, nothing could be further from the truth, especially with a leading dispensary partner like Sacred Garden.
Myth 1: All Cannabis Products Get You High
One of the most common misconceptions is that all cannabis products will give you a ‘high’. This is not the case. The two main cannabinoids in cannabis are CBD and THC. THC produces psychoactive effects (the ‘high’), whereas CBD, especially when isolated, will not. In fact, many cannabis products focus mainly on CBD, offering relief from a range of health issues without the intoxicating effects.
Myth 2: Higher THC Content Is Better
The belief that a higher THC content makes for a better product is another common misconception. The ‘quality’ of a cannabis product is often measured by its THC content, which is not wholly correct. The efficacy and effect of a cannabis product depend on the composition of cannabinoids and terpenes which contribute to the ‘entourage effect’. Our products are carefully balanced to offer you the best holistic benefits.
Myth 3: Medical Cannabis is Just an Excuse to Get High
The myth that medical cannabis is just an excuse for legal intoxication is simply false. Cannabis has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years and has significant therapeutic properties. Conditions like chronic pain, multiple sclerosis and epilepsy have been shown to improve with the help of medical cannabis.
Myth 4: Medical and Recreational Cannabis are Not Legal
Finally, the idea that medical and recreational cannabis is not legal is another misconception that we need to clear. Today, numerous states across the USA have legalized both use of medical and recreational cannabis. It is essential to check your state’s specific legislation, but rest assured that at Sacred Garden, we follow strict guidelines to ensure legal compliance while providing quality and safe products for our customers.
