How Does CBD Make You Feel?

CBD has become one of the most popular health and wellness products on the market. Millions of people use these products daily and feel that it improves their life in one way or another. One of the many intriguing things about CBD is that it is used for so many different purposes. Some people use it when they can’t sleep, some people feel it helps combat daily aches and pains, and plenty of people use it as a convenient way to stay on top of their general wellbeing.

With so many different uses, it can be hard to anticipate what you might experience when taking CBD.If you’re interested in trying CBD for the first time, but want to first better understand what you can expect, you’ve come to the right place! In this article we’ll take a deep dive into the awesome world of CBD. We’ll discuss how it interacts with the body, talk about what others commonly experience, and even give you an idea as to what you can expect for your first time.

Understanding CBD

One of the first things to understand about these products is the name. “CBD” stands for “cannabidiol”- a compound that exists in various species of cannabis. This powerful compound is found in both Cannabis Sativa and Cannabis Indica, but most companies prefer to extract it from Cannabis Sativa. Though Cannabis Indica and Cannabis Sativa have a similar chemical makeup, the compounds they contain are present in very different concentrations. Due to the high concentration of THC in Cannabis indica, most manufacturers prefer to use cannabis sativa. Not only does this mean less work for the manufacturer, but it also makes it easier for them to stay within federal guidelines regarding THC levels.

How Does CBD Interact with The Body?

CBD is a powerful cannabinoid that exists in cannabis, but how does it interact with the body? Well, inside every mammal exists a complex series of retrograde neurotransmitters referred to as the “endocannabinoid system”. This system has a direct influence on both the central and peripheral nervous system. When you consume CBD, it indirectly interfaces with both the CB1 and CB2 receptors of the endocannabinoid system. Many people believe that this interaction could be the reason people experience such incredible things when taking CBD.

Does CBD Get You High?

There is a lot to love about CBD, but one of the things that people really appreciate is that CBD is not psychoactive. The FDA regulations regarding CBD are quite strict and all manufacturers must adhere to the guidelines. One of the most heavily regulated aspects of CBD manufacturing is the amount of THC that is in the products. The Federal Drug Administration requires that all CBD products contain 0.3% THC or less. This minuscule amount of THC is not nearly enough to elicit any sort of psychoactive reaction in the body. CBD does not get you high, which allows you to experience all of the wonderful benefits of cannabidiol without any of the hazy side-effects associated with THC.

What Does CBD Feel Like?

One of the fascinating things about CBD is that everyone seems to experience something slightly different when they take it. Some people use CBD because they say it helps them sleep better. Others claim that CBD helps with their daily aches and pains. There is no way for anyone to predict how CBD will make you feel. The only way to know with certainty is to try it for yourself.

CBD is 100% non-toxic, even in extremely high doses. This means that you can try different products and serving sizes without worrying about any potential repercussions. When you’re just getting started with CBD, you’ll need to try out different potencies and serving sizes to find what works for you. Everyone requires something a little different, so experiment until you find what’s right for you!

Trying CBD For The First Time

First times can often be scary, but your first experience with CBD doesn’t have to be. CBD is completely non-toxic and non-intoxicating. It also affects everyone differently and requires a bit of experimentation to find what’s right. So how do you find the perfect CBD serving size?We recommend starting with a small amount first and gradually working your way up. One half or one full dropper of a mild CBD tincture oil is a great place to start. Consume the CBD oil, wait about 45 minutes to see how you feel. If you aren’t experiencing your desired result, increase the serving size the next time you take CBD. This simple method is extremely effective and will help you find the perfect CBD serving in no time!
