Does Cannabidiol (CBD) make you high?
CBD is marketed as non-psychoactive. However, this issue is slightly debatable. It sure cannot make you high like THC (another popular cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant). However, we should all agree that it alters our state of body and mind to some extent. And it is frowned upon for sure. Furthermore, everyone agrees that Cannabidiol (CBD) is not intoxicating. Take alcohol for example. Over-consumption of alcohol can have serious if not fatal consequences to one’s body. Over-consumption of CBD products, if there is such a thing, will make you live through your day like a sloth. A very tired one indeed.

It sure sounds like a win-win scenario if you ask us.

Alright then, all praise Cannabidiol (CBD), the holy grail. It sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it?
Every man and his dog knows that, if something sounds too good to be true, most of the time it is not. Truth is that CBD is indeed very helpful in a wide variety of uses, from pain-relief to getting a good night’s sleep. It is scientifically proven to some extent, however more studies and clinical tests should be conducted before it becomes an aphorism. The general consensus is positive.
Side-effects? What side-effects?
- Changes in appetite
- Poor quality sleep
Those are considered common adverse effects. So common, that every prescription and over-the-counter drug has them. As we already discussed before, it all comes down to individual reaction to Cannabidiol (CBD). Dosage also plays a significant role here. Always consume products according to the manufacturer’s guidelines. CBD is not the magic solution, nor does it come with no drawbacks and a 100% satisfaction guarantee. It is more like a 90% guarantee. The major issue with CBD products, apart from lab tests, is control. CBD products are considered supplements in most countries that have legalized them and as such, they are unregulated to some extent. One cannot be certain that the product being offered meets the marketed ingredients 100%. And this is Public Enemy No 1. This is why you should always conduct your due diligence before purchasing a product. Ask around, read other people’s reviews and don’t rush it. Browse the manufacturer’s website to get a general feeling about them. If you are still in doubt, there a dozen more to choose from, it all depends on how thorough a research you want to conduct.
