No. CBD is not psychoactive. CBD is completely different from THC and does affect the same receptors. This means CBD cannot get you high.
CBD Isolate only has one compound in it, Cannabidiol (CBD). Full-Spectrum CBD contains more cannabinoids than just CBD. While CBD is amazing, other cannabinoids may have their own unique health benefits which you might be missing out on by just using CBD. We recommend most users begin with Full-Spectrum.
Our Full-Spectrum contains CBD, CBDV, CBG and THCV. CBD is great for general anxiety, sleep and pain. CBDV may have neuroprotective benefits which could help someone with dementia out potentially. CBG is a powerful anti-inflammatory with benefits for IBS. THCV is non-psychoactive and actually like the opposite of THC. THCV reduces your anxiety & appetite and increases your mental focus.
Our Full-Spectrum only has a trace amount of 0.75% THC in it. This is not enough to get you high as it is such a low amount. Also, any effects of such low THC amounts would be cancelled out by the CBD & THCV in our Full-Spectrum.
THCV is not psychoactive and will not get you high. In fact, THCV has the opposite effects of THC.
While THC increases anxiety, decreases concentration and elevates appetite, THCV actually decreases anxiety, increases concentration and mood and suppresses hunger. THCV also blocks receptors that respond to THC, helping to counteract the negative effects of THC when taken together with it.
We are proud to bring the rare and exclusive THCV to our fellow Canadians in our Full-Spectrum Products.
The best way to start is to begin with a mild dose and gradually increase your dosage based on how you feel and your desired effects. As easy way to start is with half a dropper of CBD Oil, one CBD gummy or a grape-sized amount of CBD cream. Then, gradually adjust your dose depending if you feel it’s less or more than what you would like to feel.
CBD can be used in the morning (generally in lower amounts) to clear your anxiety and boost your focus, or at night in larger amounts for relaxation and a deeper sleep. One way to get both benefits of CBD is to take a small dose in the morning and a larger one before bed.
Another way is to just use your CBD as needed, re-dosing when you feel you need it.
Everyone responds differently to CBD depending on their own unique body composition.
As an easy method for our oil tinctures, we suggest starting with 1/2 a dropper and adjusting dosage sizes and dosing times based on results.
While there is no universal dose, you can also check out our CBD Dosage Chart for a recommended amount to begin with.
We recommend eating a healthy diet full of variety and rich with omega-3s which help fuel the endocannabinoid system. Having fresh fruits and vegetables may also help as they contain terpenes (the smell and flavour molecules) that can have synergestic effects with CBD. There is also research that suggests Turmeric, Black Pepper and Resveratrol may help increase the absorption of CBD.
Simply put, nobody has ever died from a CBD overdose. The fatal dose would require drinking dozens of entire bottles at once – which we don’t recommend!. Furthermore, the World Health Organization has declared CBD to be a safe, effective and non-addictive source of relief.
