Demonisation of CBD - Jan Böhmermann, the CBD devil?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural remedy extracted from the hemp plant. It has gained popularity in recent years as a natural remedy for a variety of ailments such as anxiety, pain and sleep disorders. However, CBD is often portrayed negatively in the media, which can lead to misunderstanding and uncertainty among consumers. In this blog post, I would like to address some of the reasons why CBD is often portrayed negatively in the media.
Jan Böhmermann and CBD.
Especially if you have already dealt with the topic of CBD in the past, you may have come across the video of Jan Böhmermann in the ZDF Neo Magazin Royals.
Many see the whole thing as a "destruction" of CBD.
In the context of this blog, it is very important to me to clarify how the video has often been misinterpreted or misunderstood.
In summary, the article does not deny the actual effect of CBD, but rather the sometimes frantic commercialisation of CBD. In other words, every product, no matter how unimportant, is enriched with CBD in order to be able to charge a higher price.
We see the whole thing in a similar way to Jan Böhmermann, and accordingly focus on the "essentials" in the CBD sector, as our name suggests. A small, but high-quality product range.
One of the reasons why CBD is often portrayed negatively in the media is that it is often associated with other cannabinoids such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is the cannabinoid responsible for the psychoactive effects of marijuana and it is illegal in some countries. CBD, on the other hand, is legal in many countries and has no psychoactive effects. Nevertheless, both cannabinoids are often mentioned in the same breath in the media, which can lead to confusion and an association of CBD with illegal activities.
Another reason why CBD is often portrayed negatively in the media is that it is often promoted as a miracle cure. There are many companies claiming that CBD can cure a variety of ailments without any scientific proof. This leads to CBD often being portrayed in the media as unserious and ineffective.
Another reason why CBD is often portrayed negatively in the media is that it is not yet regulated in some countries. In many countries, there are still no set standards for the production and marketing of CBD products, which can lead to some products being of poor quality and/or inaccurately dosed. This also leads to CBD often being portrayed in the media as dubious and unsafe.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural remedy extracted from the hemp plant that has gained popularity in recent years. It is believed to have a variety of health benefits, however many of these claims are not yet supported by scientific studies.
Some of the proven positive effects of CBD include:
Pain relief: CBD has been shown to relieve pain caused by various conditions such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis and other inflammatory diseases.
Anxiety relief: CBD has been shown in some studies to relieve anxiety, especially in patients with social anxiety disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Sleep improvement: CBD has been shown to help improve sleep problems by improving the duration and quality of sleep.
Anti-cancer properties: There is preliminary evidence that CBD may help slow the growth and spread of certain types of cancer cells.
Neuroprotection: CBD has been shown to protect against neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.
It is important to note that these findings are not conclusive and more research is needed to better understand and confirm the efficacy and safety of CBD. CBD products should not be considered a substitute for current medications and treatments and it is important to always consult with a doctor before starting CBD, especially for people with existing health conditions or who are taking medication.
