Dear Marley – Does CBD Oil Get You High?

Does CBD oil get you high?

My friend won’t stop ranting and raving about his daily CBD oil intake and its benefits. This is the hardest he’s tried to sell me on something since pushing his grilled halibut with lime and cilantro recipe. It was dee-licious.

He’s got me sold on the benefits, but I still wonder and worry whether or not CBD oil will get me high. I work in an office with dozens of people, and the thought of being high around my co-workers scares the absolute crap out of me. A fifteen-minute water cooler conversation with Diane on the rise and fall of the Roman Empire is what nightmares are made of. I can’t even imagine how that would go down if I were even a bit baked.

Marley, have you personally tried it? Does CBD oil get you high? Maybe I’m overthinking this and should give it a try on a lazy Sunday morning. I know I’m being paranoid, but I just can’t seem to wrap my head around CBD oil and its effects. Any advice is appreciated.

-PARANOID CBD PROSPECT

Dear Paranoid Prospect,

You are not the first and will certainly not be the last to ask if CBD oil will get you high. It’s an understandable and common misconception, due simply to a lack of education and knowledge.

The short answer to your question is no, CBD oil will not get you high. If anything, CBD oil will make Diane approximately 40% more tolerable because you will be feeling great. Regardless, you may want to learn to steer the conversation away from emperors and territorial holdings around the Mediterranean.

The misconception surrounding CBD oil that prompts the question of “Does CBD oil get you high?” is that because it is extracted from cannabis plants, it will evoke a feeling of euphoria. You will only find, at most, traces of THC in CBD oil. CBD oil is completely free of psychoactive effects and, believe it or not, the munchies. No munchies mean fewer trips to the office kitchen, which means… less Diane!

In addition to avoiding having to converse with co-workers while high, there are many proven health benefits to using CBD oil. For starters, CBD oil helps relieve pain, nausea, and inflammation. CBD oil also reduces anxiety and lowers incidence of diabetes.

The lack of THC in CBD oil means your sensory awareness will remain sharp and your perception will be just like normal. Your mind will not be altered in any way, shape or form. Will I get high from CBD oil? On second thought, that’s like asking if coca leaves will quench your thirst. Or does it? Pardon my analogy, Marley went heavy on the THC today.

Sincerely, Marley

The Internet Reacts to Canada Legalizing Weed

Published

on

It’s official! Prime Minister Trudeau has announced the date recreational cannabis sales will be legal in Canada.

Jah Bless to all our Canadian friends. Yes, cry, sing, cheer, here’s the internet’s reaction to Canada legalizing weed.

A near 100-year prohibition has come to an end as the Prime Minister of the Great White North announced the official date that marijuana will be legal nationwide. That day is October 17th, 2018.

The internet was chalk full of priceless reactions to Canada legalizing weed. First, it started with some genuine attempts to congratulate a nation that had fought hard and long to see this day through. Ex-Youtube star and pro-gamer xCodex made his piece.

And activist Dana Larsen chimed in with a notion that although this is a huge first step, there’s also a ton of work to do before those who use cannabis are truly free under the law.

Then the hilarity ensued. The jokes seemed to surround the little-beef President Trump had started with the insulting tariffs on Canada.

Most cannabis enthusiasts have a special container in their life. It’s a container that holds many things very near and dear to their heart. Papers, grinders, filters and more, a stoner’s stash box can tell you a lot about the owner. Is it big? Small? Dirty? Clean? Organized? Or messy? What about the story behind it?

In a Stash Story, we try to reveal the personal touches to choosing a place to store your herb. Your stash box could be a gift, a discovery, or an epiphany. But we want to see it!

A Stash Story: Checkmate

“Fresh out of school with a diploma in hand (makes for an excellent rolling tray, btw), I decided it was time to shift from my college habits and start smoking weed like a gentleman. It was hard to get rid of the IPhone 3G box that served me so well over those 4 years, but at the end of the day, I forced myself to toss it in the recycling bin and start fresh. Knowing what I had on its way made it slightly easier. 

I ordered my new stash box online and it arrived within a week. This may seem dramatic, but my new stash box is majestic. It really is. Like, checkmate, other stash boxes. I know it’s not a competition and I’m mostly kidding, but take a look at this thing. I believe it’s meant for cigars but turns out it works perfectly to stash my weed. There’s ample room for my bud, lighters, grinder and any and all additional tools I need to roll the perfect joint.

When my parents visited my new apartment a few months ago, dad questioned my newfound love for chess. Before I had the chance to respond, my mom reminded him (and me) that I was absolutely fascinated with the game of as a grade 1 student and how wonderful it is that I’m getting back into it. A part of me wanted to open it up and be like “THIS IS WHAT IT IS. IT’S FOR MY MARIJUANAS” but I thought better of it and defused the situation by asking my dad if 6 pawns equal 1 queen. He rolled his eyes and moved on to the next room.

So uh, ya. This is my premium stash box. It’s great.”
