Unveiling the Truth Behind Cannabis Myths

Debunking the Misconceptions

At Sacred Garden, we understand that the cannabis industry is often shrouded in myths and misconceptions. As a reputable dispensary serving the communities of Sunland Park, NM, and Las Cruces, NM, it’s our mission to educate and dispel these common myths surrounding cannabis use.

Myth #1: Cannabis is a Gateway Drug

One of the most persistent myths is the belief that cannabis use leads to harder drug abuse. However, this claim is not supported by scientific evidence. Studies have shown that the vast majority of cannabis users do not progress to other illicit substances.

Myth #2: Cannabis Causes Lung Cancer

  • While smoking any substance can potentially harm lung health, research suggests that cannabis smoke is less carcinogenic than tobacco smoke.
  • Additionally, many cannabis users opt for smoke-free consumption methods, such as edibles or vaporizers, eliminating the risks associated with combustion.

Myth #3: Cannabis is Highly Addictive

While cannabis can be habit-forming for some individuals, the addiction rate is relatively low compared to other substances. According to studies, approximately 9% of cannabis users develop dependence, whereas addiction rates for alcohol and tobacco are much higher.
