CBD can't get you high

If you have tried our CBD products, you will know it does NOT have any side effects! In fact it only has positive effects. For example, it does help you feel more relaxed and can get you good night sleep, but CBD won’t get you high.

The cannabis plant contains dozens of cannabinoids, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) being the most well-known. But as more scientific research is being conducted about cannabis and its ability to be used as medicine, more is being learnt about Cannabinol.

The difference between THC and CBD is simple, THC will get you high and CBD will definitely not. Once people understand this, they become much more open to the idea of trying medical cannabis.

THC and CBD do come from the same plant, but it does not mean they do the same things, although they do share a few positive side effects!

Cannabinol is known to have a relaxing effect whereas THC gets you high. Both CBD and THC have an impact on the Cannabinoid type 1 receptors (CB1) in your brain which everyone already naturally has but they strangely have opposite effects.

CBD barely binds with CB1 receptors. It can actually block any high from happening at all if mixed with THC. CBD could dull the high you get from THC if the two are taken together.

THC binds with CB1 receptors activating them together and causing you to feel high and stoned.

When taking hemp alone the benefits which have been scientifically proven to help you feel more relaxed and calmer.

It helps ease pain, reduce inflammation, gives you a good night sleep and is widely used to help people with anxiety and depression. Research on CBD is relatively new but there are no known side effects.

When smoking or ingesting THC it will get you high. The short term side effects of THC you can experience are, increased heart rate, co-ordination issues, red eyes, dry mouth, memory loss and slower reaction times.

The high can also leave you feeling relaxed, amused, hungry and more sensitive to smell, sight, sound, taste, and touch. 

Basically, CBD helps hundreds of thousands of people around the world and people take it for different reasons. It is a miracle natural drug with no side effects.
