Most of the time, you’ll hear people saying that CBD is non-psychoactive when they refer to its effects.
Understanding the difference between CBD and THC should clear up any confusion you may have about the possibility of getting high from CBD oil.
What Type of CBD Oil Can Get You High? How Are CBD Oils Made?
Full-spectrum CBD oil contains other compounds on top of cannabidiol, including minor cannabinoids and terpenes.
CBN starts to form when you expose THC to heat and oxygen, which is why high levels of CBN can be found in poorly stored or aged cannabis. While not intoxicating per say, CBN induces potent sedating effects, which get strengthened in the presence of THC.
CBD signals the ECS to release more endocannabinoids while slowing down their breakdown. This, in turn, allows more of your native cannabinoids to circulate in the body.
Side effects from CBD can include:
Both CBD and THC work with receptors that release neurotransmitters in your brain. They can affect things like pain, mood, sleep, and memory.
