As the US becomes more acclimated to cannabis products so does the number of questions surrounding cannabis and CBD oil. Cannabidiol does a lot of things to people, but getting high isn’t one of them. Anytime I discuss the benefits of CBD oil with my colleagues, I get reactions like…

“Would I get high on CBD oil?”

“Hope I won’t reach cloud 9 if I try CBD vape juice?”

“No, I’m not interested! I just stopped smoking and I don’t wanna get high on CBD.”

This alludes that most people confuse CBD with THC. Both compounds come from a cannabis plant, but there’s a big difference between cannabidiol and tetrahydrocannabinol.

In the States, the widely-preached mantra used to be “Not cannabis! Not Marijuana.” The high tone of many anti-weed activists (names withheld) dropped significantly when the world realized weed is less dangerous than many legalized substances, like cigarettes and alcohol.

In fact, marijuana has no addictive constituent. Though things that have no addictive attribute like food, sex, and workouts, have been reported to be abused. People get addicted to anything that helps them forget their troubles temporarily and marijuana isn’t an exception.

One hint everyone should learn from the food and drug administration (FDA) and United States LawMakers is their ability to make detailed research and weigh the effects of a concept or substance on public health before concluding on what to do with it. The public is quick to judge the use of weed with no substantial evidence pointing against it. To worsen matters, certain individuals and organizations went to the extent of painting cannabis as the “devil’s plant”. Weed was legalized across all states.
