Will CBD get me high?
- No. CBD is a product that has no THC if derived from hemp and very little if derived from cannabis and properly manufactured. THC is the chemical compound that creates the “high”. CBD products are available for patients that have a need for non-euphoric treatment.
What is the difference between CBD & THC?
- Psychoactive Vs. Non-Psychoactive. THC creates a euphoric effect due to the way it connects to the bodies endocannabinoid system.

Cannabidiol, or CBD reacts differently and is used with patients that require or prefer non euphoric care.
