Will CBD oil Get me high?
Are you curious about trying CBD oil but hesitant because you're afraid you might get high? You're not alone! With the growing popularity of CBD as a natural remedy for various health benefits, many people are wondering if it will produce a psychoactive effect like its sibling, THC.
In this article, we'll explore the question, "Will CBD oil get me high?" and provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision about using CBD oil. So, sit back, relax, and let's dive into the world of CBD.
CBD vs. THC
At GreenIVe, we are often asked questions like, "If I take CBD, will I get high?", in answering this question above, it's important to understand the difference between CBD and THC.
THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is a compound found within cannabis plants, which means it's found both in the marijuana and industrial hemp plant. THC is responsible for the psychoactive effects experienced by those who use marijuana to get "high."
In contrast, CBD is non-psychoactive and does not produce the same euphoric sensation, but it does have calming and relaxing benefits like THC. It is worth noting that some CBD products, like Full Spectrum CBD, may contain small amounts of THC, but these amounts are generally very low and not enough to produce a psychoactive effect. The legal limit for THC in CBD products is 0.3% or less, which is not enough to cause a high.
To see the effects of THC, one would take around 5 to 15mg of THC. In comparison, CBD has to be taken in higher quantities that range from 10 to 100mg.
Can you get high from CBD?
Let's talk about how CBD interacts with our bodies. CBD and THC react differently within the body. When CBD and THC are ingested, they interact with the endocannabinoid system (ECS).
The ECS has different receptors (CB1 and CB2). When people consume THC, it binds to cannabinoid receptors (CB1) in the brain and introduces external endocannabinoids into the body. This leads to a range of effects, including altered perceptions, mood changes, and impaired coordination.
CBD, on the other hand, does not bind to these receptors in the same way and does not produce the same effects. Instead, CBD stimulates the receptors and encourages the body to produce its own endocannabinoids.
To sum up, CBD cannot possibly get you high from a biological standpoint. Now that we know how CBD interacts within the body, we need to talk about how the types of CBD affect our question, "Can you get high from CBD?".
Now, just because CBD alone cannot get you high, that doesn't mean there aren't CBD products out there that can get you high. Let's quickly cover the different types of CBD to further explore our question.
Can different CBD oil types affect how I feel?
There are three types of CBD on the market. Let's start with the first type of CBD. Full Spectrum CBD is not only the most sought-after CBD, but it is also the most effective.
Its effectiveness is due to the presence of all cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Because all cannabinoids are present, that means that THC is also present. Most Full Spectrum CBD products now contain the federal legal limit of THC, which we discussed above.
It must contain less than 0.3% THC. However, depending on your state, those Full Spectrum CBD products could contain higher amounts of THC. So, if you want to avoid THC or getting high, we recommend staying away from Full Spectrum CBD.
The second type, which is almost as popular as Full Spectrum CBD, is Broad Spectrum CBD. Broad Spectrum CBD usually has the same cannabinoids as Full Spectrum CBD minus the THC. If you are looking for a more efficient CBD product without THC, it's the CBD type for you.
Last but not least, we have CBD Isolate. CBD Isolate products are generally made with only one or two different cannabinoid isolates. This type of CBD is found in most CBD products but is less effective due to the lack of other cannabinoids. It is also considered the safest CBD option.
Can different CBD product types affect how I feel?
You can find CBD in a variety of different products. Some deliver faster results, and others a more gradual delivery. Let's cover why this is relevant to our question.
Smoking or vaping CBD vape oils may lead to faster absorption into the bloodstream, potentially intensifying the effects felt of calm and relaxation. This can be mistaken for being "high", but it is more likely a stronger, relaxed feeling.
However, most CBD oil is consumed orally through capsules, tinctures, or edibles, and the effects are generally milder, but CBD taken in a high enough dose may produce the same strong calm and relaxed feeling.
One of the types of CBD products out there is Full Spectrum CBD. These products contain up to 0.3% THC. Such a small amount of THC is not supposed to cause "high" feelings. There have also been studies done that There are broad-spectrum products that have all the cannabinoids except for the THC if you are still worried about the THC.
What happens if you take too much CBD?
Let's review our question, "If I take CBD, will I get high?" the answer is kind of, but that depends on the dosage amount of CBD. Higher doses of CBD oil may produce more noticeable effects, but it is still unlikely to produce a high sensation. The effects of CBD generally include the following:
As with any supplement, starting with a lower dose and gradually increasing it as needed is important. People may try to increase their dosage of CBD to feel stronger effects, but this may not be a good idea. It is possible to take too much CBD. Taking too much could cause some of these CBD side effects:
- drowsiness and other changes in alertness
- decreased appetite
Studies have shown that CBD overdoses usually occur if THC is in the product or the person takes more than 1,500 mg of CBD. Most CBD products recommend about 10mg to 100mg of CBD per serving, so reaching 1,500mg is improbable but not impossible. Before using CBD or increasing your dosage, please consult your doctor to do what is best for you.
Quality of CBD
Finally, purchasing CBD oil from a reputable source is essential to ensure that it contains the advertised amount of CBD and does not contain any harmful contaminants or an illegal or higher dose of THC.
Look for products that have been third-party tested and verified for the purity of the CBD and THC (if in the product), and the amount of THC within the product.
Sum it Up!
Hopefully, we were able to answer the question, "Will CBD oil get me high?". If not, let's answer the question again. CBD oil is unlikely to get you high as long as it doesn't contain a high concentration of the psychoactive compound THC.
The product's type, method of consumption, dosage, and quality can all affect the likelihood of feeling any effects, but CBD is safe and non-intoxicating.
If you are considering using CBD oil for a specific health condition, it is important to consult with your healthcare provider to determine the appropriate dosage and potential interactions with other medications.
