Debunking the Myth: Can CBD Really Get You High?

Feb 29, 2024 | Canna-Guide

CBD, short for cannabidiol, has exploded in popularity in recent years. Touted for its potential health benefits, from reducing anxiety to managing pain, it’s often lumped together with its infamous cousin, THC, the psychoactive compound in cannabis responsible for the “high.” But can CBD actually get you high? In short, no.

While both CBD and THC come from the cannabis plant, they offer drastically different experiences. THC directly interacts with the endocannabinoid system, a network of receptors throughout the body, producing the intoxicating effects associated with marijuana. CBD, on the other hand, doesn’t directly bind to these receptors. Instead, it indirectly influences the system, promoting a sense of calmness and well-being without any mind-altering effects.

Think of it this way: imagine the endocannabinoid system as an orchestra. THC acts like a conductor, directly telling the instruments what to play, resulting in a chaotic, euphoric melody. CBD, however, is more like a gentle nudge, subtly influencing the overall sound without dictating each note. This explains why users describe CBD’s effects as relaxation, focus improvement, and even pain relief, but not intoxication.

However, a small caveat exists. Some CBD products, particularly full-spectrum oils, may contain trace amounts of THC (usually less than 0.3%). While unlikely to induce a noticeable high, these products could potentially trigger a positive drug test. If concerned, opt for broad-spectrum or isolate CBD, which contains no THC.

Remember, individual experiences with CBD can vary. Listen to your body and start with low doses, gradually increasing as needed. If you have any concerns, always consult your healthcare provider before using CBD.
