CBD is a cannabinoid, one of the many natural compounds found in cannabis and Hemp.
CBD has received more attention lately as both state and federal laws have led to an increase in production of CBD infused products.
You might be taking CBD to help you with health problems. Some take CBD gummies or CBD oil to help with anxiety and depression. You might be worried about getting high. This article will weigh whether CBD could get you high according to experts and the recent studies.
Can CBD get you high?
Taking CBD does not get you high. The 'high' feeling is usually produced by a famous cannabinoid called tetrahydrocannabinol (THC ). THC is well-known for its psychoactive effects after consuming it with cannabis or Marijuana.
THC produces a 'high' feeling. It is an altered state majorly characterized by pleasure, euphoria and heightened sensory perception.
Unlike THC, CBD doesn't cause that high. However, CBD derived from marijuana plants may have high THC levels more than that derived from Hemp. Marijuana can have a THC level of more than 0.03%, making it illegal in most USA states. On the other hand, CBD derived from Hemp has a THC level of 0.03% or lower. This kind of level cannot make you feel high.
Why do some think you can get high on CBD?
Both cannabinoids (THC and CBD ) exist naturally in cannabis or Sativa plants. They can be isolated successfully from cannabis plants. CBD then can be infused into several products for consumption without the high inducing THC.
People still assume that CBD produces a high feeling because they naturally exist in the same plant. However, it is not true CBD alone is non intoxicating hence can't cause the high feeling.
Furthermore, CBD can be extracted from hemp plants; Hemp has no psychoactive effects.
In reality, marijuana-derived CBD is illegal in many states. These products by law contain more than 0.03 % of THC making them illegal federally.
Can you get high from CBD oil?
As mentioned earlier, once extracted from a cannabis plant, CBD can be added to several products, such as tinctures, lotions, and oils.
CBD oil is one of the most famous CBD products. It can be taken in many ways. Some prefer sublingual, which is under your tongue. It can also be added to drinks and foods. You can vape it. These products have been used in the past for lowering anxiety. Some studies have found that CBD can reduce anxiety and depression; this is not similar to the high marijuana causes. Using a higher concentration of CBD than recommended, could potentially cause the uplifting effect. But still, it is not the same as getting high.
