What are the effects of CBD oil?

Does CBD get you high? The short answer is no!

Need to know more before you make a judgement? We’ve got you covered with plenty of research showing that CBD oil does not get you high. In 2017, the World Health Organization (WHO) laid out the official roundup of literature on cannabidiol (CBD), proposing that CBD is “generally well tolerated” and non-psychoactive.

According to the report, one adverse side effect to watch out for might occur as a result of combining the consumption of CBD with other medications. Otherwise, the report found that there is currently no evidence of CBD having caused any public health related problems.

“In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential,” the report states.

This categorization is likely because CBD does not have any of the psychoactive components associated with cannabis. Tetrahydrocannabinol, known more commonly as THC, is the psychoactive element which some may seek for recreational uses. However, CBD oil is extracted from the hemp plant, which contains very little THC—so little that CBD products made from it contain less than 0.3 percent in order to be sold legally.

What does CBD feel like when you take it?

The WHO has concluded that “in general, clinical studies have reported that even high doses of oral CBD do not cause the effects that are characteristic for THC and for cannabis rich in THC.”

Even high doses of CBD do not result in any of the psychoactive “high” that THC is known for: dry mouth, inhibited motor skills and mental activity, or dopamine release.

Instead of making you high, CBD may actually work with your endocannabinoid system to keep everything running smoothly. Try RESET today to find out how it could have a positive effect on you!
