Will CBD get me high?
Updated: Jul 7, 2021
No amount of CBD will get you high, ever.
Eating CBD edibles, smoking CBD flower, using CBD topical products, no form of CBD can make you feel impaired. It is THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), that creates the high feeling most people associate with cannabis.
Let's start with what is CBD?
CBD stands for 'cannabidol', which is a chemical compound that naturally occurs in the cannabis sativa plant. The cannabis plant has thousands of years of history used as medicine and for its therapeutic effects.
When used, CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid receptors in our bodies to produce effects that may remedy day to day. The endocannabinoid system regulates sleep, mood, appetite, memory and more.
Scientist have been able to isolate over 100 compounds from the cannabis plant.
THC and CBD are widely researched compounds with a profound amount of therapeutic benefits.
CBD & THC are closely related in some ways but affect different receptors in the brain and body.
CBD doesn’t react with the cannabinoid (CB1) receptors in the brain the way THC does, therefore it isn't plausible to experience the same high you’d get from THC with most CBD. Instead, CBD reacts with the same receptors depression medications work with, like serotonin.
There is compelling evidence that CBD works best in combination with THC and the full spectrum of other cannabis components.
The 2018 Farm Bill legalized the use of hemp in 50 states in the U.S, with this regulation most CBD products on the market need to meet regulations of having less that 0.3% THC to ensure the effects of THC aren't profound.
Lotus Bliss Botanicals ensures that all products have less than 0.3% THC and we provide lab tests of all our products so you can see clearly the amounts of CBD and/or THC included.
When looking for quality CBD make sure lab tests are available so you can know exactly what you're getting and putting on or into your body.
