CBD is widely believed to have a soothing and relaxing effect, but without THC’s intoxicating property. Besides the non-intoxicating nature of the compound, how does CBD make you feel?
This can be tricky to answer, as users report different effects after CBD consumption – including calmness and relaxation. However, the feeling derived is dependent on several factors, including the dosage, the form of CBD, and some other individual factors.
For instance, CBD creams and notions may offer relief to pain in target areas of the body. On the other hand, a CBD-THC rich product may provide better sleep, but also get you high, based on the THC level.
Individual diet, weight, metabolism, genetics, and CBD quality are other things to factor in when determining how CBD makes you feel.
For instance, CBD oil derived from hemp have different chemical composition than that obtained from marijuana. Majorly, the marijuana plant contains a higher THC concentration than CBD.
However, it’s advisable to stick to products with not more than .3 percent THC concentration. Also, remember that besides CBD and THC, there are other cannabinoids in cannabis that synergize to give a unique effect.
Let’s discuss the different CBD forms, their content, and how each makes you feel.
Forms of CBD Oil
- Full Spectrum CBD Oil
By full-spectrum CBD oil, we refer to CBD oil with all the components in the hemp plant, including Cannabigerol (CBG), Cannabinol (CBN), and, notably, THC.
Full-spectrum is widely thought to offer a synergistic effect widely termed “entourage effect.”
- Broad Spectrum CBD Oil
Broad-spectrum contains all compounds in cannabis, except THC. While this CBD oil may offer near-similar synergistic effects like full-spectrum, THC’s impact is absent.
Wrap-Up – Any Side Effects?
CBD has been reported safe and widely tolerated. However, a handful of users note dry mouth, drowsiness, diarrhea, lightheadedness, and change in appetite.
Although research on CBD and its effect is still in its infancy, the evidence so far supports anecdotal evidences, which shows little to no side effects, even when dosed regularly and in high dosage.
However, do well to consult your doctor before you begin with any CBD product. Besides recommending a suitable dosage for your condition, they may also suggest the best products.
