We’ve compiled some of the most frequently asked questions to shine some light, and truth, on all the unanswered questions.
CAN CBD OIL GET YOU HIGH?
The answer is quite straightforward; No, CBD oil doesn’t get you high. CBD or cannabidiol is a natural cannabinoid derived from the hemp and cannabis plant. Another cannabinoid known for its psychoactive effects is THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).
THC is the compound that creates the ‘high’ feeling when smoked. All CBD products aim to eliminate all THC to avoid the ‘high’ feeling for its users. While only producing the benefits after smoking.

WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF USING CBD OIL?
There aren’t any serious or medically harmful side effects associated with digesting any legal cannabidiol products. Some minor side effects may include hunger, dry mouth, euphoria, and sleepiness.
Unlike smoking a THC-filled joint, you won’t experience any psychoactive effects.
ISN’T IT A DRUG?
CBD (cannabidiol) is one of 85 cannabinoids, just like most of its counterparts it is the primary chemical ingredient in a cannabis plant. The other popular cannabinoid is THC. Cannabidiol is legal in many countries including 50 states of the United states. It’s not seen as an illegal drug, because of its many medicinal benefits.
THC, on the other hand, is a drug that is used recreationally for its psychoactive effects on the body. This compound also comes from the cannabis plant, but because of its drug-like effects it’s classified as an illegal drug in many countries.

WHAT IS THE BEST METHOD OF DIGESTION?
There are many different forms in which you can digest CBD products. You can buy edibles, oils, ointments, and cigarettes or even vape juice. Studies have proven that inhaling the product through vaping or smoking is the fastest way to absorb it into the bloodstream.
The faster it gets absorbed in the body, the faster you can experience the benefits. Studies have also shown that when cannabidiol is smoked, that it can be detected in the body for up to 72 hours. Compared to digestive oils and edibles that only stay in the body for 6 hours.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MARIJUANA AND HEMP
Because there are so many street names for cannabidiol products like weed, marijuana, cannabis, hemp, joints, grass, etc. it is easy to mistake the one for the other. Cannabis sativa is the plant that is used as a drug and to produce hemp products.
Marijuana is any cannabis plant that holds a THC percentage of more than 0.3%. A plant with more than 0.3% THC will be used to create weed specifically used to get high.
Hemp plants are those that hold less than 0.3% of THC and are used as legal medicinal products in the form of oils and ointments.
