Although CBD has gained a reputation in recent years for its numerous health benefits, there is still often confusion about some of its effects. Because CBD is a cannabinoid that can be found in the same plants as delta-9 THC, many potential customers are concerned that it produces a similar high. In this article, we will go over the differences between CBD and THC and explain why CBD doesn’t make you feel high.

Understanding CBD and THC

CBD and delta-9 THC are both cannabinoids, meaning that they are both compounds that can be found in hemp and marijuana plants. In short, while these compounds both come from the same place, each has different effects on the user. 

THC is responsible for the euphoric and psychoactive effects commonly associated with marijuana use. On the other hand, CBD does not produce a high or alter your state of mind. While the high produced by delta-9 THC may increase anxiety levels, CBD is known for decreasing anxiety

Both CBD and THC interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), which controls functions, such as pain perception, mood, appetite, and immune response. Unlike THC, CBD does not bind directly to the cannabinoid receptors in the brain. Instead, it works with the receptors indirectly to promote balance within the body.

CBD is believed to have various potential health benefits, including reducing anxiety, alleviating pain, and improving sleep quality. These effects are not associated with feeling high but rather with the balancing of the endocannabinoid system.

Why Doesn’t CBD Make You Feel High?

CBD doesn’t get you high because it is not psychoactive. This means that it does not produce the mind-altering effects associated with THC. This is because CBD does not bind directly to the cannabinoid receptors in the brain that are responsible for producing a high.

Legally, CBD products can only contain up to 0.3 percent delta-9 THC. This is such a small amount that it is very unlikely to produce any psychoactive effects or a “high” sensation. Additionally, because CBD is an effective treatment for anxiety, it can actually counteract the anxiety brought on by THC. 

Find High-Quality CBD Products with Real Tested CBD!

As always, it is recommended to consult with a healthcare professional before incorporating CBD into your health routine, especially if you have any underlying medical conditions or are taking other medications. If you want to use CBD products that don’t contain any THC, you should look for broad-spectrum and CBD isolate products. The former contains CBD and other major cannabinoids, but no delta-9 THC, while the latter contains only CBD.

The best way to verify the true contents of any hemp-derived product is by looking at that product’s third-party lab test results. Not only will these results show you if the product in question contains any harmful solvents or pesticides, but they should also confirm the label’s claim for cannabinoid content.
