We live in an age where technology has revolutionized our lives, and it’s made things easier for us. It has brought together the millions of people together to communicate without a delay of a second. Our generation is the first to use this evolving technology, and most of us are unaware of the harms that come along with its benefits. The devices that can help in your child’s mental growth can be fatal if not used carefully. Excess of anything is dangerous, and in this case, technology can be hazardous. Many severe medical conditions may arise due to excessive exposure to the screens, which might potentially require help from therapists in the long run. The screen can be of your television, mobile devices, computer, or gaming consoles. Whatever the source is, it’s dangerous for you and the people around you.
Many physical and mental health problems arise due to over screening, and along with these problems, other corresponding illnesses may occur too. That’s not all, these electronic devices emit harmless radiations, but if a person is exposed for a more extended period, they can be harmful too. The blue light from the screens is harmful to your eyes and for mental health also. Some physical and mental related problems that occur due to excessive screen time are as follows:
There is a set age requirement for drinking alcohol. Engaging in the brew is deemed illegal if you are not of age. This threat has long been in the books and meant to keep teenagers away from alcohol consumption. Even so, it is widespread to hear teenagers hosting parties and taking part in the use of the brew in large quantities. Hollywood and pop culture too is not making things any easier. With the continual portrayal of heavy drinking lifestyle, you continually get the notion that it is a reasonable thing to do.
CBD products seem to be all over the UK at the moment in a variation of forms such as capsules, oils and balms. With claims that they can help numerous health conditions from chronic pain, skin conditions and even anxiety, people are still unsure about taking these products due to the misconceptions surrounding CBD.
To help correct some of these misconceptions and give a clear overview of how CBD can help you, Truverra have created a video and quiz to provide some #CBDknowledge.
Here we talk through some of the common CBD myths and whether they are true or false.
CBD can get you high.
THC is the molecule that causes the high you get from marijuana which is different to the CBD molecule, therefore you can’t get high from CBD. As it’s non-psychoactive, it means it doesn’t have a strong effect on cognitive brain activity.
You can drive after taking CBD.
Many people think it’s unsafe to drive after taking CBD, but as there are no side effects, it shouldn’t affect your driving ability. As with anything, it’s important to know your own reactions to CBD before getting behind the wheel.
CBD can help with migraines.
Although there is limited research on the effects that CBD oil has on migraines, studies have suggested that it can help reduce pain and other symptoms associated with migraines.
It’s illegal to take CBD on a plane with you.
This will vary for each country and it’s best to check before flying, but CBD products in the UK contain less than 0.2% of THC and are sold as nutritional supplements, so you should be able to take CBD on domestic flights within the UK and international flights to the UK.
CBD is not addictive.
With a small percentage of THC found in CBD products, there’s not enough to get a person high or addicted. CBD is a non-intoxicating substance and the body can’t build a high tolerance to it.
We hope that you have a better understanding of CBD and that this post has helped correct any misconceptions you may have had about CBD products.
