Does CBD oil get you high?
My friend won’t stop ranting and raving about his daily CBD oil intake and its benefits. Does CBD oil get you high? 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.
Have You Tried It?
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.
