Does CBD Get You High?

With the increasing awareness of CBD, Hemp, Hemp Oil, and CBD Oil, you may be wondering:

Does CBD Get You High?

CBD is 100% non-psychoactive, meaning it doesn't negatively impact your mind or mental process.

In other words, CBD does not get you high or stoned.

You might be wondering how this is possible. Marijuana plants are bred for high THC; the specific cannabinoid that gets you high. However, cannabis contains many other cannabinoids, most of which do not get you high, like CBD. Hemp plants are bred for high CBD content exclusively and only contain trace amounts of THC (below 0.3%). The combination of high-CBD with extremely low amounts of THC is what makes the products derived from hemp plants non- psychoactive.


CBD and THC are the two most abundant of the many cannabinoids found in cannabis. While they both interact with the endocannabinoid system, they are different chemicals which have different effects on the human system when consumed.

THC, an intoxicating and illegal substance, is responsible for causing marijuana users to get "high". CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning it does not produce a high like THC.

THC interacts with the type 1 receptor (CB1) predominantly in the brain.
CBD interacts with the type 2 receptor (CB2) in the immune system, brain, gastrointestinal 
system, and peripheral nervous system.
