Will CBD Make You High

This is a question that is asked or implied all the time. Since both CBD and THC come from the cannabis plant, some people automatically associate CBD with THC and think that because THC can make you high or psychoactive, then so can CBD. The short answer is ‘No. CBD, on its own, cannot make you high.

The CB1 receptors in our body are highly concentrated in the brain and nervous system (as well as the lungs, liver and kidneys), and the CB2 receptors are found in the peripheral tissues and cells of the immune system and play a role in the relief of pain. While both CBD and THC react to both CB1 and CB2, THC binds more with the CB1 receptors, thus producing that high or euphoric state while CBD tends to bind more with the CB2 receptors giving a relaxing state.
