Does CBD make you high?

CBD is an entirely different compound from THC, and its effects are very complex. It is not psychoactive, meaning it does not produce a "high" or change a person's state of mind, but it influences the body to use its own endocannabinoids more effectively.

CBD stops the body from absorbing anandamide, which is a compound that is associated with regulating pain. Therefore increased levels of anandamide in the bloodstream may reduce the amount of pain a person feels and can also  

 limit inflammation in the brain and nervous system, which may benefit people experiencing insomnia and certain immune-system responses as well.



CBD has traditionally been used for thousands of years to help treat various types of pain, but the medical community have only recently begun to study it again.

Here are some of the possible benefits of CBD oil:

  • Arthritis pain

  • Multiple sclerosis

  • Chronic pain

  • Smoking cessation and drug withdrawal

  • Treating seizures and epilepsy

  • Antipsychotic effects on people with schizophrenia

  • Anxiety

The FDA does not regulate CBD for most conditions. As a result, dosages are currently open to interpretation, and people should treat them with caution.

Dosing can be different for each person, however here is a guideline to help you 

Knowing why you’re using CBD will help you to find the “right” dosage. In a nutshell, the appropriate CBD oil dosage depends on a variety of factors, including why you are taking it and the delivery method.

Use the way you felt before taking CBD as your baseline and measure how you feel after each trial dose. You may need to try a few different doses before pinpointing what works best for you and your goals.
