MINT HILL, NC – To answer that I would have to say Yes and no. Cannabidiol is one of the two best-known active compounds derived from the marijuana plant. The other is tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, which is the substance that produces the “high” from marijuana.
When you take CBD that is extracted correctly it does not / should not get you high, but the idea that it’s not psychoactive is something of a misconception It does change your consciousness. You should feel mellow, experience less pain, and be more comfortable. In addition, some CBD products do contain small amounts of THC. If you experience a “high” from taking CBD, this is because it may contain more THC than CBD which is not what you want. You are taking CBD in order to feel better, less stressed, and less pain.
While CBD can come from marijuana, it can also be derived from hemp. Hemp is a related plant with 0.3% or less of THC. This plant is often used to make fabrics and ropes. As of 2018, Congress made hemp legal in all 50 states, and consequently CBD derived from hemp is also legal. The rules around marijuana-derived CBD, however, are far less clear.
