At New Standard, we pride ourselves on being a reliable source of information for all things cannabis. As Michigan’s premier cannabis dispensary, we understand the importance of educating our customers and clearing up any misconceptions surrounding this fascinating plant.

Myth: Cannabis is a Gateway Drug

This myth has been perpetuated for decades, but scientific evidence suggests otherwise. Cannabis itself does not increase the risk of using harder drugs. In fact, studies have shown that legal cannabis access can actually reduce the use of substances like opioids.

Myth: Cannabis Causes Laziness

The stereotype of the lazy, unmotivated cannabis user is simply inaccurate. While overconsumption can lead to lethargy, responsible use of cannabis does not inherently cause laziness. Many successful individuals across various industries consume cannabis regularly.

Myth: Cannabis Impairs Memory and Cognition

While there is some evidence that heavy, long-term use of cannabis can affect memory and cognition, moderate use has not been shown to have significant negative impacts. In fact, studies suggest that low doses of cannabis may improve focus and creativity.
