Does Hemp Get You High?
Hemp and marijuana are often confused.
Can you get high off hemp?
It’s possibly the No. 1 question about hemp: Can you get high?
Hemp produces a broad range of cannabinoids, including tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the intoxicating cannabinoid in marijuana. However, hemp does not produce enough THC to create intoxicating effects.
Although hemp doesn’t produce a significant amount of THC, it is capable of producing the non-intoxicating cannabinoid cannabidiol (CBD) in high concentrations. In fact, hemp-derived CBD is rapidly becoming one of the most popular forms of cannabinoid on the market today.
So, if hemp won’t get you high, what does it do, exactly? Well, this research is looking promising…it shows that it can provide relief from everyday stress and anxiousness, promote feelings of calm, support healthy immune function, and help with sleep, for starters.* It’s also becoming a popular ingredient across the cosmetic industry as it’s said to help promote healthy skin, hair, and nails.*
There are a ton of awesome benefits that hemp could potentially offer someone when properly implemented into their daily routine and with the correct dosage, but among the many things hemp can do for your body, hemp won’t make you feel high.*
