Even thought CBD and THC come from the same plant, it doesn’t mean that they will have the same effects. Both chemicals have an outrageously long list of healing potential, but both interact with your brain differently. But there has been a question that keeps popping up among people who are trying to see if CBD oil is right for them; can you get high off of CBD if you take enough?
This is a great question because what if you can get high off of CBD it is just at a high dose? There are plenty of medications that when you take one too many, you can start to abuse. Fortunately, research tells us that CBD doesn’t work that way.
Scientists have of course asked this question themselves, so they did a study on it. They wanted to find out if CBD oil could give THC-like effects at high doses. What they found is that CBD didn’t have any psychological, psychomotor, cognitive, or physical effects when taken at a high dose. They also make it a point to note that when taking CBD, the subjects had no traceable amounts of THC in their system.
No matter how much CBD oil you take, you will not get high. This is good news for people who need to take more than a thousand milligrams a day and don’t want the drowsy side-effects that come along with certain strains of cannabis that have THC.
This study also puts to rest any assumption on whether CBD can change to THC once it is ingested or whether or not CBD has THC in it. Considering not every state or employer is on board with the cannabis community, this makes CBD a great candidate for people who need to utilize the benefits of cannabis without the risks of using THC.
