The quick answer to this question is NO!
CBD is non-psychoactive, which basically means it will not ever get you stoned, high, wasted or any other way you want to put it. Many people lump CBD together with THC simply because it’s derived from the Cannabis Plant. THC is the cannabis-derived compound that is responsible for making a person feel ‘high’. CBD and THC affect the endocannabinoid system in different ways. THC more commonly activates CB1 receptors, which are most commonly concentrated in the brain. CBD doesn’t directly interact with CB1 or CB2 receptors, but it does indirectly affect the signaling pathways of the two receptors. This is partly why CBD presents no psychoactive effects. CBD may even get in the way of THC triggering CB1 receptors, which can affect its overall effects. Many CBD oils contain trace amounts of THC, and recent evidence suggests that CBD and THC may work in conjunction to complement their beneficial effects. However, the amount of THC in CBD oil (0.3 percent or less) is not nearly enough to produce psychoactive effects to make you feel high.
If I Don’t Get High From CBD, How Does It Feel?
Everyone is different in the way their body reacts to CBD. Your body’s reaction also depends on your daily CBD intake. Many people have said their depression, stress and/or anxiety lessens. Some say their chronic pain is reduced or even eliminated. Some have described feeling ‘comfortable’ or ‘relaxed’. Some have said they feel ‘happy’, ‘less irritable’, ‘mentally clearer’ and just plain ‘better’. These sensations that users experience with CBD often help them in deciding on the best time of day to take their supplements. If you find that taking CBD oil makes you feel energized, for example, then a morning CBD routine may work best. Some consumers like to take CBD supplements in the early afternoon when energy levels start to decrease. If you notice that CBD oil makes you feel relaxed, then taking your supplement in the evening could be ideal.
Will CBD Help Me?
The human body is has a system called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). This system regulates functions such as pain, appetite, sleep and immune system response. A properly functioning endocannabinoid system is crucial for our health and well-being. When something in our external environment causes a cell related to any of our functions to become out of balance, the endocannabinoid system makes adjustments to bring things back into balance. CBD has been shown to interact with the ECS by creating balance when it needs restoring. With regular CBD oil use, you may experience effects and sensations related a more active endocannabinoid system as your body and its functions operate more efficiently. You may notice CBD’s balancing effects positively impact your sleep habits, appetite, mood, or any of the functions regulated by the endocannabinoid system.
