CBD vs. THC
Both CBD and THC act on our natural endocannabinoid system, which can help reduce pain, anxiety, inflammation and more. The difference is in their chemical structure which allows both to interact similarly and differently with our CB1 and CB2 receptors.
The short answer to the question ‘will CBD get me high?’ is no. CBD is non-intoxicating and will not get you high. We mentioned above that hemp plants have over one hundred types of compounds in them. One of these is THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) which is the compound that causes the high associated with cannabis. Green Roads’ CBD products are made with cannabidiol from hemp plants that meet the legal qualifications for industrial hemp. One qualification is that the plant contains less than 0.3% THC by dry weight. This minimal amount is already not enough to cause a high, hence the legality of industrial hemp.
