Myth 1: Cannabis is a Gateway Drug

This age-old myth purports that consuming cannabis will invariably lead individuals to try harder, more dangerous substances, plunging them into a vortex of addiction. However, according to research by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the majority of people who use marijuana do not go on to use other, “harder” substances.

Myth 2: Consuming Recreational Weed Leads to Deviant Behavior

There is a long-standing stereotype that cannabis consumers are lazy, antisocial, or deviant. While heavy use can indeed lead to various personal and social issues, responsible, legal consumption in moderation, much like any substance, doesn’t inherently lead to these problems. Many consumers are productive, upstanding citizens, and this harmful, stigmatizing myth is both damaging and incorrect.

Myth 3: All Cannabis Products Get You High

Lastly, people often assume that using any cannabis product will result in a ‘high.’ This is untrue. Products rich in CBD (cannabidiol), for example, do not produce the psychoactive effects associated with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Hence, not all products at dispensaries like Altius Dispensary will induce a ‘high’; it’s entirely dependent on the components of the specific product.

Ending on a note of encouragement, we hope this has cleared up some common misconceptions about recreational weed. At Altius Dispensary, we are here to guide, educate, and make your knowledgeable journey into the world of cannabis as comfortable as possible.
