Debunking Cannabis Myths at New Standard Dispensary

Welcome to New Standard, Michigan’s premier cannabis dispensary! We understand that the world of cannabis can be shrouded in myths and misconceptions. Today, we’re here to debunk some of the most common myths surrounding this fascinating plant.

Myth #1: Cannabis is a Gateway Drug

This is one of the most pervasive myths about cannabis, but it has been thoroughly debunked by numerous studies. The idea that cannabis leads to the use of harder drugs is simply not supported by scientific evidence. In fact, research suggests that cannabis may actually serve as a substitute for harder substances, potentially reducing the overall harm associated with drug use.

Myth #2: Cannabis Causes Laziness and Lack of Motivation

While it’s true that some strains of cannabis can produce a relaxing effect, the idea that it universally causes laziness and lack of motivation is a gross oversimplification. Many cannabis users report increased creativity, focus, and productivity when using the right strains and dosages.

Myth #3: Cannabis is Highly Addictive

While it’s possible to develop a psychological dependence on cannabis, the substance itself is not considered physically addictive in the same way as substances like heroin or alcohol. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, around 9% of cannabis users may develop some form of dependence, which is lower than many other substances.
