What is CBD?
CBD (short for Cannabidoil) is a non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis. In other words, unlike it’s intoxicating cousin THC, ingesting CBD derived from cannabis or hemp will not get you high.
CBD has shown to be helpful to people with many physical and mental health conditions including: chronic pain, inflammation, epilepsy, anxiety, depression, insomnia, PTSD, alcoholism, schizophrenia, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, and may even prove to be a powerful tool in the fight against cancer.
CBD is naturally occurring in CBD rich and/or CBD dominant strains of cannabis and hemp.
Will smoking CBD hemp get me high?
No, smoking CBD hemp will not get you high.
Although hemp is in the cannabis family and a close cousin of intoxicating marijuana, Hemp does not contain the chemical compounds to get you high. Hemp, by legal definition, contains only trace amounts of THC (less than 0.3%). THC (tetrahydrocannabidol) is the compound found in marijuana that is known for getting people high. Whether smoking or ingesting, the trace amounts of THC present in hemp is not enough to get you high.
High CBD hemp flower, however, has been noted to produce a relaxing and/or alert feeling but is not accompanied by intoxication of any sort.
