Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a compound found in cannabis and hemp. CBD is not psychoactive, meaning it does not produce a “high” or change a person’s state of mind. CBD is available in various forms, including oils, capsules, and edibles. In this article, we look at whether CBD oil can cause a person to feel high.
How Much CBD is Necessary to Get High?
There is no definitive answer to this question as the amount of CBD oil required to get high will vary depending on the content of THC in the oil. One selling point of CBD oil is that it is not possible to become high from its use. This is because it contains only trace levels of THC, the psychoactive compound in cannabis.
However if a person were to look for a product that would produce some sort of high, they would need one with 2 – 3% THC content in comparison to 0.2% or less which is present in everyday Cannabidiol supplements. Even at that, an individuals tolerance will come into play also as some people may need more than this to achieve any sort of high effect.
What’s the Strongest CBD Oil in the UK?
The strongest CBD oil in Britain is 30% CBD oil which is full-spectrum in nature or otherwise known as whole-plant hemp extract. 30% should contain 3000mg of CBD in a single tincture which Dr. Hemp Me stocks and sells frequently to customers looking for a highly concentrated dose of Cannabidiol.
Of course always remember that the true percentage of any CBD oil depends on the amount of oil in the bottle. Our bottles contain 10ml of oil which may sound small but this means they are very potent and true to the concentration on the label.
Other brands will sell a 3000mg or 30% oil in a 30ml or even a 100ml bottle which means there has to be much more carrier oil (does not contain CBD) in the bottle. Each drop is inevitably more diluted and so the percentage concentration is not as it seems. We keep our bottle size at 10ml to ensure maximum potency and value per drop!
Is 5% Strong Enough?
5% CBD Oil is low strength in terms of Cannabidiol concentration. Many people starting out on CBD will use this strength or a younger member of the family who is smaller in size and weight with a lower tolerance to hemp cannabinoids.
So for most people, 5% or 500mg of CBD content in an oil is not strong enough. 10% is the optimal choice for many beginners and avid users alike as it is a middle of the range concentration which suits most types of users.
So, Does CBD Oil Get you High – UK?
In general, CBD oil sold and purchased in the UK will not get you high as it legally should not contain more than 0.2% THC content. This is a tiny amount or trace levels of THC and impossible to achieve a high from. CBD itself can counteract the ‘high’ of THC and so if CBD is present in large amounts, it makes it more difficult for the THC to cause a ‘high’.
How Many mg of CBD is Correct to Cause a High?
As mentioned earlier CBD itself is not capable of causing a high in the user. In fact it counteracts such effects which are caused by another cannabinoid found in hemp and cannabis plants, THC. THC in trace amounts cannot cause a ‘high’ but in large amounts it can.
So the more mg of CBD you have in a tincture does not matter. The amount of THC you have in the tincture does matter, as the more that is present the more chance there is of a high effect.
Is 40mg too much?
No, 40mg of CBD Oil daily is pretty normal for those with a higher tolerance to this cannabinoid or those who want to take a high dose on a daily basis. As always higher doses should be built up to slowly, by starting low perhaps at 25-30mg per day and working up from here over time.
Is 100mg a lot?
Yes 100mg of CBD is a lot for most people. However given that some products like CBD oils are not labelled true to concentration someone may be taking this amount in theory, not realising it is much more diluted than stated. Other people may have very high tolerances to supplements and simply need this level of milligrams but in particular cases.
How Do I Use Cannabidiol?
CBD oil can be ingested in many different ways. It can be added to food or drinks, or taken directly. It can also be inhaled using a vaporizer. The most popular method of taking CBD oil is to place a few drops under the tongue and hold it there for a minute or two before swallowing. This allows the oil to be absorbed directly into the bloodstream.
How Long Does a 10ml Bottle Last?
Typically a 10ml bottle lasts our customers around a month, sometimes more. This depends on the concentration of the oil you purchase as the higher the CBD content the less drops you need per day.
