Will CBD Get You High?
Will CBD Get You High?
The short answer is NO. Now, for the scientific reasoning.
Due to the numerous benefits of cannabidiol (CBD), interest around CBD has been growing at an incredible rate in recent years. As interest grows with this wonderful compound, so does confusion. Many people have the misperception that CBD is like THC in marijuana, and has the ability to get you ‘high’. It does not, CBD is non-psychoactive.
CBD is one of the over 100 beneficial compounds called cannabinoids that come from the cannabis sativa plant hemp plant. While it comes from the cannabis plant, CBD doesn’t have the same ability to create intoxifying effects like its more infamous counterpart, THC.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is another popular cannabinoid known for its psychoactive effects. But don’t confuse THC with CBD — these two compounds might come from the same plant, but that doesn’t mean they do the same thing to your body or your mind.
CBD and THC both affect the cannabinoid type 1 receptors (CB1) in your brain, but they have very different effects. THC binds to the receptors, activating them and causing a feeling of euphoria or ‘high’. The high from THC can leave you feeling relaxed, euphoric, happy, focused, creative, hungry, and leave you with an enhanced sense of taste, touch, smell, sound and sight.
Proper Canna CBD comes from hemp plants, not marijuana plants. While the two plants are close relatives, hemp by definition contains less than 0.3% THC. Marijuana is categorized as any cannabis plant that contains over the .3% level of THC. The hemp plant, or cannabis sativa plant naturally has higher levels of CBD, which is a non-psychoactive compound known for supporting overall wellness in humans and pets.
So if CBD doesn’t get you high, how does it make you feel?
CBD is being widely adopted by health enthusiasts around the globe for supporting cellular and molecular health. It may help you maintain focus, promote a sense of calm and wellbeing, help your body’s natural ability to cope with stress (internal and external), recover from exercise-induced inflammation, support natural sleep cycles, and more.
Proper Canna offers USDA certified organic full-spectrum, and broad-spectrum CBD in our product lineup, which contains not only CBD, but many other beneficial phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. What are the differences between full-spectrum and broad-spectrum CBD?
Full-spectrum CBD refers to the pure oil extracted from a hemp plant, containing all the unmodified cannabinoids and compounds present in the plant, including THC. Unlike isolated or synthetic cannabinoids, full-spectrum hemp oil contains hundreds of beneficial cannabinoids, as well as many essential vitamins (including B1, B2, B6, D) and minerals including iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium and potassium. Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids, protein, chlorophyll, fiber, flavonoids and terpenes.
The most prominent cannabinoid found in our hemp oil is cannabidiol (CBD). Our full-spectrum hemp oil also contains cannabinoid cannabidiolic acid (CBDa) and other major cannabinoids found in full-spectrum hemp extract including cannabigerol (CBD), tetrahydrocannabinol (THC, and cannabinol (CBN).
Several high profile independent studies have shown that CBD works much more effectively in the presence of the “whole” cannabis plant, rather than by itself as an isolate, this is why Proper Canna Naturals chooses to provide USDA organic, full-spectrum and broad spectrum hemp products.
Broad-spectrum hemp extract contains all of the beneficial phytocannabinoids we love, including cannabidiol (CBD) but excludes THC.
Broad-spectrum CBD starts out as a full-spectrum extract with all of hemp’s beneficial properties, such as terpenes and all present cannabinoids, then goes through a remediation process to remove the THC. This means there are absolutely no intoxifying effects. Simply put, broad-spectrum hemp extract is full-spectrum hemp extract without the THC.
Proper Canna Naturals proudly offers broad-spectrum products for customers who are looking for all of the beneficial properties of full-spectrum CBD, without the psychoactive compound of THC.
