Can CBD Oil Make You Feel High?

So, let’s make this very, very clear - CBD, Cannabidiol, does not have psychoactive effect unlike the other popular cannabinoid THC.

Many people are under the impression that anything and everything related to Cannabis/Hemp MUST get you “High”. Well, this is simply just not the case and is far from the facts.

The psychoactive chemical named THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the only known molecule found within cannabis plant that gives off a psychoactive effect, a “High” to its consumers.

It’s also worth mentioning that ICARIA’s CBD is made from hemp and not marijuana. In addition to that ICARIA’s products are made with CBD crystalline to make sure that there is 0.00% THC in them.


A variety of consumers are consistently being deterred away from consuming CBD with this innocent assumption that CBD will make them feel “High” or deem them unable to function about their daily tasks of life.

Well, this not the case by any means. CBD works so fluently with your endocannabinoid system and has been known to have profound beneficial effects on the body.

CBD has a tremendous amount of potential to provide your body with the potent, effective and essential properties needed for promoting healing and balancing of one’s overall health, without having to endure the psychoactive high effects one would incur while consuming THC.

In fact, recent studies indicate that CBD may actually counteract the psychoactive effects of THC. There are still a variety of studies underway to solidify and prove the extent of this theory.


If I won’t feel high… How will I even know that it’s working…?

Rather than feeling high when consuming CBD, you may feel:

We still have so much to learn about these wonderful and seemingly miraculous plants! However, one thing has become very undeniably clear, CBD does not get you high.

How do CBD and other Cannabinoids work with my body…?

There are two types of receptors – CB1 and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors are the leaders of the endocannabinoid system - responsible for maintaining balance of the central nervous system which manages stress, anxiety, immune system balance and more.

CB2 receptors are believed to work hand in hand with reducing inflammation, trigger healing/balance, and other types of “behind the scenes” functions within the body non-directly related to emotional type functions.

When CBD binds itself to these receptors upon intake- it adds organic fuel to the fire of your endocannabinoid system – allowing it to thrive and cause a chain reaction of positive effects throughout the entire body.
