Will CBD Get You High?

Will CBD Get You High?

What is the most important question surrounding CBD (tip: the headline is a dead give-away)? 

Will it get me high or not?

If you are unfamiliar with CBD, but still considered purchasing some, then you have undoubtedly asked yourself this question. The answer is simple: no. 

CBD cannot get you high. You can order every item from this site and the only thing you would feel is an upset stomach. It is true that CBD has the potential to help relieve some of your day to day stress, but this is not accomplished by getting you ‘high’. 

The intoxicating feeling that people get from consuming other cannabis-based products is caused from THC, which has nothing to do with CBD. Here is what Dr. Ryan McLaughlin has to say about the effects of CBD: 


“It doesn’t make you high, it doesn’t induce euphoria, it doesn’t alter perception of our emotional experiences to the same degree that other drugs are going to do.”

What Are The Differences In CBD Isolate, Broad Spectrum, and Full Spectrum?

This is where things can get a tad confusing. There are three different spectrum variants for CBD products: Full spectrum, broad spectrum, and isolates. Each spectrum has their unique quality and affect. 

  1. Full Spectrum - Means it contains ALL of the major cannabinoids, this includes: CBD, CBN, CBG, and even THC. Yes, full spectrum contains trace amounts of THC - .3% to be exact. This minute amount of THC is not nearly enough to get you high. To put this into reference, Marijuana, cannabis, or weed can contain around 5-30% THC. 
  2. Broad Spectrum - A product that is labeled as such means it does not contain any THC. Broad spectrum does in fact contain the other major cannabinoids, but NO THC. 
  3. Isolate -  To be honest, this is the least sought after of the group. Like its title suggests, these products only contain an individual cannabinoid. For example: CBD isolate only has CBD, no other cannabinoids are included.

Will CBD Make Me Fail My Drug Test?

Ok, I lied. This might be the biggest question facing CBD. The answer is not as simple as not as easy to explain -for legal purposes only. 

As I mentioned earlier, CBD will not get you high; It does not have enough THC content to do so. It is THC, Delta 9 Tetrahydrocannabinol, that these tests are designed to detect. 

Final CBD products will have very little to no amounts of delta 9 tetrahydrocannabinol. This extremely low amount of THC will not result in a positive drug test

So, it is highly unlikely that you will fail a drug test as a result of consuming CBD products. We use these loose terms in the same manner as we do trying to explain the health benefits of CBD. 

Simply put, we do not know what kind of other drugs you are taking. Because of this, we cannot guarantee that you will pass or fail your drug test. 

If this answer does not satisfy you and you are still concerned about not passing a drug test, then I recommend purchasing anything that has the label broad spectrum. Remember, broad spectrum & CBD Isolate products contain NO THC

CBD and THC may come from the Cannabis Sativa plant, but this does not mean they are one in the same. 

Even though CBD products can help ease your stress, that does not mean it will get you high. That intoxicating feel is a result of Delta 9 Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. 

Some CBD products do contain trace amounts of THC, but not enough to likely show up on a drug or get you intoxicated.

And if you want to avoid THC entirely, buy a product that is a CBD Isolate or broad spectrum.
