And while some people may long for the escape of a high from time to time and prefer other drugs for their recreational use, the benefits of CBD make it still worth using.
CBD is a compound that is found in hemp plants with many benefits for human health. Research has shown that CBD can help people treat anxiety disorders, chronic pain conditions such as arthritis or lower back pain, and skin diseases like psoriasis or eczema.
Why Doesn’t CBD Create A High Feeling Like Marijuana?
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a compound from the cannabis plant. As such, it can be easy to assume that CBD will produce a high similar to what people feel when using marijuana or other psychoactive drugs. But does CBD really produce a high? No, it does not. CBD does not contain any of the psychoactive ingredients that create a “high” feeling in people who use marijuana. This article will go into further detail about what causes a high, why CBD does not produce highs, and the benefits that can come from using CBD.
To understand why cannabidiol does not create the feeling of “being high”, you’ll first need to understand what it is that actually causes a high. The primary compound that causes highs is tetrahydrocannabinol, more commonly known as THC. Marijuana has significant amounts of THC. When someone smokes marijuana or ingests it in some way (vaporizing, edibles, or oils), THC activates receptors in the brain causing them to feel high. The sensation of being high varies depending on the person, their genetics, age, and tolerance.
What Are The Benefits Of CBD?
Researchers are still exploring the benefits of CBD so there could be other amazing medical uses we have not yet discovered!
I recently started using hemp flower, and I've noticed that when I vape it, there is an oh so slightly familiar feeling of being "buzzed." I don't ever get this when taking CBD oil, full spectrum or not. I don't do an excessive amount (0.1 grams usually). It calms my mind but sometimes to the point where I have to remind myself what I'm doing, which to me seems like more of a familiar psychoactive result I'd be having with THC (although to a much lesser extent). I'm not sure if it's in my head because of my previous, habitual experience with marijuana or something in the flower. I got concerned that the flower might have more THC than the labs indicated (I can get randomly tested at work) so I drug tested myself after a few days of use but the results came back negative.
Anyone else get a body buzz feeling and/or slightly scatterbrained while using CBD flower??
Btw, the labs indicate that the THC is nondetectable at less than 0.02% but THC-total is 0.6% and THCA is around 0.7%. Could this be the cause?
