The two most active compounds in cannabis are CBD and THC. When either are dominant in a cannabis flower they both smell the same, look the same, share a lot of the same benefits and taste the same. When THC or CBD is ingested or smoked though they react with mind completely different. THC is psychoactive where CBD is not. CBD will not get you "high" but it can help relax you, reduce stress and reduce pain. Lets take a look at how CBD works and why CBD flower wont get you high.
How CBD works.There is a very complex system called the endocannabinoid system which CBD can interact with. When CBD interacts with your endocannabinoid system it helps release more cannabinoids into your body which can help with sleep, apatite, pain and other internal body functions.
Why CBD instead of THC?CBD doesn't have the psychoactive effects that THC has. Which is why there are no CBD flowers that will get you high. There are some negative effects of THC that some people don't want to risk experiencing and want to avoid. Some of those symptoms are paranoia, headache, nausea, dizziness, memory loss and drowsiness. CBD is the perfect alternative to THC. CBD gives all the same amazing smells and tastes of THC but removes all the most common negative effects. There have been some reported cases of dizziness and fatigue but most CBD users report experiencing relaxation, stress relief and pain relief.
