Is CBD Intoxicating and Euphoric?
Cannabinoid [CBD] has proven to have the potential of treating multiple health issues. It does not cause the mind-altering change that its cousin Tetrahydrocannabinol [THC] does even though both belong to the cannabis family. Cannabis comes under the Substance III category and is banned in the US. Nevertheless, the therapeutic benefits of CBD have influenced the majority of states in the US to legalize it. There are some restrictions, which vary from one state to another. Generally, CBD extracted from hemp is legalized for therapeutic and recreational use.
Marijuana and hemp belong to the cannabis group. Hemp is bred for its heavy and thick stalks for fibers, which are used to make paper, ropes, clothes, etc. The industrial-grade hemp plant is rich in CBD and has an extremely low level of THC [0.3%]. THC is available in the plant’s flowering portion, which has attracted cannabis breeders to grow the heavy, lush buds rich in THC that induces the stoned and high feel.
Is CBD intoxicating?
CBD moderates the THC high but its effects are pleasant. Even if you ingest pure CBD the chances to fail a drug test is high, so it is necessary to pick the right CBD product. Broad-spectrum CBD and CBD isolate have no evident THC, while full-spectrum CBD has traces of THC.

Both THC and CBD can relieve you from pain and nausea, reduce inflammation, and treat a seizure disorder. Both the cannabinoids are psychoactive but THC is intoxicating. It is the THC that generates the euphoria and changes the perceptions. CBD ‘competes’ with the THC on receptors CB1 and moderates the psychoactive effects of its cousin. CBD promotes calmness and relaxation.
How CBD works?
Our body has a network of receptors and chemicals in the peripheral and central nervous system called ECS [endocannabinoid system]. Receptors CB1 and CB2 interact with ligands molecules to control glutamate and dopamine production. The ligands, enzymes, and endocannabinoid receptors participate in different bodily processes like pain management, appetite, memory, and mood regulation.
CBD and THC extracted from cannabis are called exogenous cannabinoids, as they are not created inside your body. Their structure is similar to endogenous cannabinoids, so they bind with receptors CB1 and CB2. The impact is optimistic on several physical functions. THC and CBD are capable to relieve you from pain.
Are both the cannabinoids safe to ingest?
CBD and THC are safe because they hardly interact with that part of the brain that regulates the body’s vital functions. Cannabinoid receptors never send signals to the lungs to stop breathing like the opioid receptors. So, cannabis overdose is impossible!
