Does CBD Get You "High"?

Aug 19, 2022

INDICA Skincare Team

Since CBD has become extremely popular in the beauty industry, many people are curious about it.

Due to its close association with marijuana, people often wonder if CBD can make you "high." Questions like "does CBD get you high?" and "is CBD legal?" are very common search queries online. "Should I use CBD products on my skin?" is another popular one. People who are keen on trying CBD skincare products often hesitate to do so because of the rampant misconception regarding this ingredient!

There just isn't enough awareness about the miraculous ingredient that is CBD, and we're here on a mission to change that. So let's take a closer look at CBD.

Can CBD Make You "High"? 

The short answer is no. CBD does not get you "high." It simply isn't that part of the plant! To understand this, let's explore what exactly CBD is and how it's different from THC.

The difference between CBD and THC

CBD and THC are the two most well-known cannabinoids found in cannabis plants. CBD is short for cannabidiol, and THC stands for tetrahydrocannabinol.

CBD is considered to be non-intoxicating, meaning it won't get you "high", while THC is known for its psychoactive effects (or the "high"). CBD is found in both marijuana and hemp plants (which are two varieties of the Cannabis sativa plant), but approved and legal CBD products on the market are made from industrial hemp plants (which can be grown legally) since they contain very little THC.

Indeed, the distinction between marijuana (also known as weed) and hemp is that the former contains more THC and the latter contains more CBD.

CBD can be extracted from the hemp plant to make CBD oil, which is used on its own or infused into a variety of products like CBD skincare and CBD edibles.

CBD is legal in most countries because it is not a narcotic substance, while THC is still illegal in many places.

CBD skincare is legal and efficient

CBD skincare is a new and upcoming trend in the beauty industry. CBD oil has been shown to have numerous potential health benefits, including reducing inflammation and anxiety. When in combination with other natural ingredients, CBD can provide a range of benefits to the skin.

Thus, CBD skincare products are popular, legal, and available for purchase online and in stores in Europe and the USA. Many CBD products are said to be more sustainable than traditional skincare products, as they primarily make use of natural ingredients and do not contain harmful chemicals or fragrances.

However, unfortunately, there are a lot of brands that use the public's misconception about CBD to their advantage. For example, a lot of people are not aware of the difference between hemp seed oil and CBD, and so there are shady companies out there that push their products saying that they contain the latter when they actually only contain the former. Others might not be transparent about how they source their CBD while some sell their products without getting the necessary legal approval.

It is thus important to purchase CBD skincare products only from reputed brands that are certified, transparent about their sourcing process, and honest about what goes on the label.

The Bottom Line

Although CBD and THC are both found in cannabis plants, they have very different effects. THC is the psychoactive compound that produces the "high" feeling, while CBD does not. CBD is extracted from industrial hemp plants, since the plants contain negligible amounts of THC and are legal to grow. So, no, CBD will not make you "high." 

CBD skincare is a good option to consider as the ingredient has many impressive abilities, from being able to reduce inflammation and soothe irritation. However, make sure you are purchasing only high-quality CBD products. You can try a reputed natural skincare brand like INDICA Skincare to experience the benefits of CBD for skin.
