Can CBD really make you high?
CBD and THC both are mood-altering compounds, which have therapeutic benefits, such as relieving nausea and pain, reducing inflammation, and also treating few seizure disorders. Though both cannabinoids can be psychoactive, but THC only can be intoxicating.
CBD on the other hand, promotes calmness and relaxation, while THC produces real euphoria.
How CBD works?
We humans and all mammals have got internal chemicals and receptors that is known as endocannabinoid system. They are called CB1 and CB2, which control release of neurotransmitters.
The endocannabinoid receptors, can affect many different processes in our body, including our thought, memory, pain management, mood and appetite.
CBD and THC obtained from cannabis plant also can bind with our CB1/CB2 receptors to create various effects and can moderate few physical functions.
- THC relieves from nausea and can increase appetite
- CBD and THC both can be effective for providing pain relief.
- Also, CBD is antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, which has proven effective medically in treating few seizure disorders.
Whether CBD is psychoactive or intoxicating?
The scientific research still has not made absolutely clear about this issue however, anxiety, stress and also sleep problems usually are the common reasons, why consumers use CBD. CBD is also relaxing for many people.
Incidentally, marijuana strains have both THC and CBD, but rarely produce any undesirable effects—like anxiety or paranoia, that is often experienced with weed, which is high in THC and low in CBD.
Apparently, CBD competes with THC in respect of CB1 receptors, and thus moderates psychological effects of immediate cousin.
Though CBD may change your mood, will provide deeper sense of calmness but it will not change spatial or sensory perception to create euphoria, what THC does. Thus, both cannabinoids can be psychoactive, but THC only is intoxicating.
How CBD will make you feel?
For few people, CBD may offer exaggerated feeling of both peace, calm or lack of any negative feelings that they must have experienced before.
Since, CBD is anti-inflammatory, as it can reduce your pain and also relax the body. A first-time CBD user of tincture and capsules will experience super relaxed, no pain and anxiety, and almost like he is floating.
Those who smoke or vape CBD-rich hemp flowers or high-CBD or low-THC marijuana flowers may experience most obvious psychoactive effects. That will be because flower will contain much higher THC level as compared to other CBD products.
