What are the Effects of CBD? Does it Get You High?

You’ve probably heard of CBD in the news, due to its wide range of medical applications for adults suffering from chronic conditions. While academic research is still preliminary, CBD has developed a huge following:  people clearly get relief from their ailments with the use of high-quality CBD extracts and tinctures like Mr. Pink CBD Oil Tinctures.

CBD acts as a therapeutic agent in your endocannabinoid system, constantly working to get your body into a place of homeostasis. Regardless of obvious benefits like this, there still remains a lot of misinformation out there about CBD, which leads us to the question everyone wants to know – are CBD consumers getting high?  Here, we'll conclusively answer this question in concrete detail.

Does CBD Get You High?

No! CBD is 100% non-psychoactive, meaning it doesn’t negatively impact your mind or mental processes. In other words, CBD does not get you 'high,' stoned, faded, or any other term you care to use. There is no mental fog or haziness caused by CBD – seriously, none whatsoever.

You might be wondering how this is possible. This is likely because you associate the term "cannabis" with the marijuana plants bred for high THC content.  For the uninitiated, THC is the specific cannabinoid (cannabis-derived compound) that gets you high. 

Cannabis, however, is a complex plant family that contains many other cannabinoids – most of which do not get you high, like CBD. Some cannabis plants are bred for high CBD content exclusively – these plants are known as ‘hemp’ – and only contain trace amounts of THC (below 0.3% to be exact, according to Federal regulations). The combination of high CBD content and extremely low levels of THC is what makes the products derived from hemp plants non-psychoactive.

To reiterate, the cannabis plant family contains multiple cannabinoids, however, only THC provides the traditional high associated with cannabis. Marijuana plants provide high THC concentrations, while hemp produces high levels of CBD. CBD, the second most prevalent cannabinoid, is non-psychoactive and doesn’t induce any ‘high" at all.

What Does CBD Oil Feel Like?

Now you’re probably wondering if CBD is not going to get me 'high,' then what is going to happen? That's a valid question.

Without going too deep into the science, CBD affects multiple sets of receptors all throughout the body. Rather than binding to your cannabinoid receptors directly (like THC), CBD exerts indirect influence on these receptors, increasing the levels of endocannabinoids produced naturally by your body (or reference, endocannabinoids are produced naturally in the body and phytocannabinoids, like THC and CBD, come from plants).

The result is described by many as a wave of relief or relaxation that can be felt throughout the whole body when CBD is ingested orally, smoked, or vaporized. Topical application also provides relief, resulting in a near instantaneous reduction in swelling, pain, and discomfort.

To be clear, the effects are typically pretty mild, but that’s the point – CBD targets the source of your problem while limiting symptoms – without interfering with day-to-day life or impairing consumers in any way.

Many first time CBD consumers look down at their watch 30 minutes after ingesting tinctures and think, “I don’t feel anything, is it even working?” An hour later, they realize they totally forgot about their depression, anxiety, pain, inflammation – you name it. This example serves to illustrate the subtle, yet highly effective healing properties of CBD.

You won’t feel anything weird or out of the ordinary, but after 90 minutes you’ll likely realize that your pain has totally melted away.
