Will CBD get you high? That is a question many people are wondering before trying it out. It’s either they want to avoid the psychoactive feeling or they want it. In this article, we share the truth and either put your mind at ease or disappoint many of you.
As some of you are aware, Cannabidiol or more recognized as CBD is a chemical compound within Hemp. You may also be aware that Hemp is a species of the Cannabis plant, just like marijuana is another species. Due to hemp being in the same family as marijuana, its association misleads people into assuming that its natural ingredient, CBD, will get you high or a buzzed feeling. Unfortunately for many, that is far from the truth. The truth is that hemp nor CBD will get you high, as Cannabidiol is not a psychoactive compound, and Tetrahydrocannabinol or better recognized as THC (the psychoactive compound in marijuana — the part that gets you high) is present in hemp, but only in trace amounts. If both species are from the cannabis plant, what makes one hemp and the other marijuana? Cannabis plants that are low (0.3% or lower) in THC are classified as Industrial Hemp. Cannabis plants that are above 0.3% THC are classified as Marijuana. All of the products at PRYME CBD are below the 0.3% THC limit, therefore all of the products listed on the site are legal for you to buy and use, and even includes a lab report with a full analysis.
The Difference Between Hemp and Marijuana
The big difference between the two species, both hemp, and marijuana, is that marijuana has a high amount of THC and a low amount of CBD, while hemp has a low amount of THC and a high amount of CBD. You see, when farmers are growing ‘industrial hemp’, the crop must yield low THC levels, below 0.3% THC to be exact. It must be below this specific amount in order to be federally legal in the United States. If you ask a hemp farmer, they’ll tell you they don’t want hemp to even be remotely close to the legal limit, because if it tests over, the whole crop is ruined and the farmers lose thousands or even millions of dollars.
What Are The Effects of CBD?
If you were looking for a high, you better look somewhere else, because as we mentioned before, CBD will not get you high. However, it does offer some effects that may appeal to you. When you use any CBD product at the correct dosage, you will feel more relaxed, and if you take enough CBD, your body itself could feel ‘high’, while your mind is clear as ever. Many people refer to it as a “body high”.
You have to understand, CBD is more medicinally charged, meaning the medical benefits of it are more prominent than what you actually feel. For example, when you take Motrin, you don’t necessarily feel anything, but you know it has worked because you are no longer in pain or inflammation in an area has reduced. While you can catch a ‘feel’ from it, there is a saying you should go by “it isn’t about what you feel, it’s about what you don’t feel”. That said, don’t come into it thinking you’re going to get this overwhelming feeling of pleasure, but do know in most cases you should feel something. If you purchase a CBD product and don’t feel anything nor notice a difference, it is likely that you aren’t taking an adequate dosage for you specifically or the product you purchased is low-quality and has a weak potency.
What CBD Product Will Give Me The Best Effects?
While you’ll gain the most benefits from a full-spectrum CBD oil, vaping CBD Ejuice or smoking/vaping CBD Flower will provide the fastest and most potent results. Taking CBD Gummies or oil takes time to digest and enter your bloodstream, so you don’t get the full grunt of its power all at once. However, vaping or smoking is the fastest way for CBD to absorb into your bloodstream and you almost immediately feel it.
Can You Smoke or Vaporize Hemp?
Oh yes! Oh yes, you can. And, let us be the first to tell you that it is awesome! The big difference between CBD Ejuice and CBD Flower is that ejuice is commonly made with a CBD Isolate, meaning it only contains the Cannabidiol compound. CBD Flower, on the other hand, is the raw flower, meaning it contains all of the different cannabinoids and terpenes that are very beneficial in helping treat a variety of conditions, along with delivering very relaxing effects on both body and mind. The good thing about CBD Hemp Flower is that it’s the most affordable as well since it didn’t undergo a rigorous process of extraction.
