Are you one of the people who wish they could consume THC for the health benefits? Unfortunately, due to your job, you can’t use marijuana because of drug tests or maybe, you don’t like being high. You’d love the benefits of THC but these problems stop you from using it.
There is an alternative to THC products: CBD oil!
You may be wondering what the CBD experience is like and if it is as beneficial as THC. Believe it or not, this type of oil has several benefits that are better than using THC.
Keep reading to learn the answers to some of your questions about CBD oil!
CBD Experience: No ‘High’
A common question about CBD oil is will it make you ‘high.’ The short answer is no.
CBD does contain some THC due to it being derived from cannabis plants. However, the amount of THC is negligible and is not enough to make you feel high.
It is worth noting that any chemical that alters the brain’s function is technically psychoactive. This includes caffeine, nicotine, and even anti-depressants–none of which have intoxicating effects like alcohol or THC.
You Won’t Fail a Drug Test
If you choose to use high-quality CBD oil that contains no more than 0.3% of THC, the chances of failing a drug test are almost nonexistent. This is because drug screens check for THC, not CBD.
However, using incredibly large amounts of CBD oil (even if the oil has 0.3% or less THC) or oil that has been cross-contaminated at a dispensary could result in a positive urine screen.
Fewer Side Effects
Many people love the effects of THC products but for others, the side effects can be a nightmare. Typically, the negative effects of THC include anxiety/paranoia, increased heart rate, and slower reaction times.
Because CBD oil affects the brain differently and won’t get you high, the side effects tend to be minimal. There is a chance of nausea if you have problems digesting other supplements or take too much.
It also can cause drowsiness but if you are using the oil to help with insomnia, this is a desired side effect!
More Lenient Laws Compared to THC Products
The legality of THC varies from state to state. Some states do not allow any THC products, others allow it for medicinal purposes, and others have made THC legal for recreational purposes.
Unfortunately, THC products are still federally illegal. However, under the Hemp Farming Act of 2018, CBD oil, when it meets all guidelines, is legal. Even though this act has made these products legal, some states are behind the curve.
This means that you will need to check the laws in your area when it comes to purchasing and being in possession of CBD oil.
Final Thoughts on CBD Oil
Overall, using CBD oil has several benefits that THC can’t match. Whether you don’t enjoy being intoxicated, can’t afford a positive drug screen, or live in a non-legal state, a CBD experience is a great option!
