Will I get High?

Not to be confused with its controversial cousin THC, CBD is a cannabinoid that does not have euphoric side effects when consumed. CBD is more commonly derived from the industrial hemp plant, while THC is derived from the cannabis plant. Aside from being derived from different places, the way in which these two cannabinoids react with your CB-1 endocannabinoid receptors are very different. Because of its molecular structure, THC is able to bind directly with CB-1 receptors. When this bond is formed, the reaction creates signals that are sent to the brain, which results in the psychoactive effects of “getting high.” Research shows that CBD does not bond directly with CB-1 receptors*, and its presence can even negate the bond between THC and the CB-1 receptors, effectively neutralizing the psychoactive effects induced by THC.
