Can CBD get me High

Can CBD get me High?

If you have read the title of this article, the short answer is no. However, the nuances to this statement are significant. Although CBD (Cannabidiol) itself cannot get you high, it all depends on the amount of THC content that exists in your CBD health product. THC, another compound produced by the cannabis plant, is responsible for the “high,” or an altered state characterized by euphoria, pleasure, or heightened sensory perception. Many Cannabidiol products are psychoactive because they are “full-spectrum” products with 0.3% THC or less. These full-spectrum products are typically better health aids than those with only CBD because the synergy between the cannabinoids can have its own health benefits. CBD on its own is non-intoxicating. However, as a consumer, it is important to be conscious of packaging that may emphasize Cannabidiol but may have also have THC in its cannabinoid content. Full-spectrum CBD products will hence appear on drug tests, even in its small proportion. 

How is CBD and THC Different?

CBD and THC both happen to act on the same cannabinoid receptors. The CB1 receptors in the brain interact with both compounds. However, the impact is quite contradictory. While THC directly attaches to these receptors and activates them, CBD is a CB1 antagonist that blocks intoxication. In fact, if you were to consume Cannabidiol after consuming significant amounts of THC, euphoria may be inhibited or tapered. These two impacts mean that the two cannabinoids have different effects on the brain. Although CBD is non-euphoric, studies suggest that CBD may promote relaxation, lower anxiety, and improve mood. Relieving these symptoms is certainly not the same as the psychoactive uplifting effects of smoking marijuana.
