With lots being written about CBD in the media recently, confusion has led many people to ask if CBD gets you high.
The short answer is, no!
CBD does not get you high. CBD is completely non-psychoactive unlike THC, which when consumed can produce effects such as euphoria, paranoia, relaxation, anxiety and much more.
Hemp vs Marijuana
The confusion stems from the fact that CBD and THC, two of over a hundred cannabinoids, come from the same plant, Cannabis. There are two species of the Cannabis plant; hemp and marijuana. In the last 20 years, special strains of hemp have been cultivated that are high in CBD and low in THC (0.2%, to be exact). That is the plant from which CBD is extracted. Please note, not all hemp has high levels of CBD and that is why it is important to only choose CBD products that can show the cannabinoid content.

We love hemp!
Hemp is grown for its sturdy stalks, which provide many uses; from cloth to cement and even fuel! Hemp is also wonderful for removing pollutants from the soil, so it can be used to great effect to manage environmental disasters.
The benefits of hemp are truly endless, from the ability to reduce deforestation with the production of hemp paper, to making biodegradable and recyclable hemp plastic.
CBD vs THC
CBD may actually inhibit the effects of THC. Because of the way each cannabinoid interacts with the body’s neuron receptors in completely different ways, CBD is said to block THC from interacting with its natural endocannabinoid system.
So now you can buy CBD safe in knowledge that it will not create the same psychological effects in your body as THC.
