So, you're saying CBD won't get me high?

Slide Box Back

  • Nope. The cannabis plant is made up of two main players: CBD and THC. CBD is the non-psychoactive portion of the plant, so what that means is you won’t have any effects like euphoria. Some users report feeling calmer and more relaxed from CBD products, but this is not the same as the “high” experienced with THC.

What does it mean when CBD oil is full spectrum?

Slide Box Back

  • Also known as whole-plant cannabidiol (CBD) oil, full-spectrum CBD oil is cannabis oil with high concentrations of CBD, as well as all other cannabinoids, terpenes, and trace amounts of THC found in the cannabis plant. The best full-spectrum CBD oil is one that contains all the cannabis compounds from within the cannabis plant. As long as it’s hemp-derived, the THC will be less than 0.3%. This ensures that it can have no psychoactive effect on the person taking the product, whilst boosting the potential for the entourage effect.
