Debunking Cannabis Myths: Unveiling the Truth

Welcome to our blog, where we aim to dispel the misconceptions surrounding the world of cannabis. As Michigan’s premier cannabis dispensary, we believe in providing accurate information to our valued customers. Today, we’ll delve into some of the most common myths and set the record straight.

Myth #1: Cannabis is a Gateway Drug

This myth has been perpetuated for decades, but it lacks scientific evidence. Cannabis itself does not lead to the use of harder drugs. The decision to explore other substances is influenced by various personal and environmental factors, not by cannabis alone. At New Standard, we prioritize responsible consumption and education.

Myth #2: All Cannabis Products Get You High

This couldn’t be further from the truth. While some cannabis products contain THC, the compound responsible for the psychoactive effects, many others are rich in CBD, which is non-intoxicating. Our edibles and tinctures cater to those seeking the therapeutic benefits of cannabis without the high.

Myth #3: Cannabis is Addictive

While it is possible to develop a psychological dependence on cannabis, the substance itself is not physically addictive like many other drugs. At New Standard, we advocate for responsible use and educate our customers on the importance of moderation and self-awareness.

Myth #4: Cannabis Causes Lung Damage

This myth often stems from the misconception that smoking cannabis is akin to smoking tobacco. However, credible studies have shown that cannabis smoke does not carry the same risks as tobacco smoke. Additionally, there are many alternative consumption methods, such as vaporizers, edibles, and tinctures, that eliminate any potential lung damage.

At New Standard, we are committed to providing our customers with the highest quality flower, edibles, and related products. Our knowledgeable staff is always ready to address any concerns or questions you may have. Join us in exploring the world of cannabis with an open mind and a commitment to dispelling myths through education and experience.
