Reality Check: CBD Will Not Get You High

Woman watching sunsetRead all about it! You won’t get high from using CBD! Let’s be frank – while, of course, CBD is found in the cannabis plant - contrary to popular belief, when you use CBD you won’t get the fuzzy like feeling of getting high, most commonly associated with smoking the infamous plant.
Alas, CBD – short for Cannabidiol - is just one of over a hundred different cannabinoid compounds found predominantly within the cannabis plant that interact with our very own endocannabinoid system. This endocannabinoid system consists of multiple receptors called CB1 and CB2 which are found throughout the body and are thought to be linked to maintaining a balanced homeostasis - responsible for things like our mood, appetite, sleep, and immune systems.
CBD is just one of over a hundred known cannabinoids within the cannabis plant, the majority of which will not get you in the slightest bit high - but there’s always got to be one hasn’t there? Like the naughty school kid sat at the back of the bus, THC is one of the only psychoactive members of the cannabinoid family and is generally considered to be the culprit when it comes to the quite misconstrued perception that the majority of the population have of cannabis and authorities are slowly starting to acknowledge.


CBD based products sold in the UK are extracted from the industrialized cannabis plant, hemp, which has traditionally been cultivated as a crop due to its hardy and fibrous structure. Ideal for ropes, paper, clothes – you name it – hemp does it. Due to this purposed cultivation, the THC levels found in Hemp are extremely low and will never be enough to get you even the slightest bit high. 


Depending on how you use CBD, the effects of the CBD may differ from user to user, but ultimately the cannabinoid produces a calming effect with many users reporting wave like symptoms of relief. There are a wealth of CBD products available on the market, but the most popular methods are by vaping a CBD Vape Oil or by using CBD Oil Drops which can either be dropped directly underneath your tongue or mixed with food, drink or even rubbed into your skin!
