Most Common Questions About Cannabis Answered! Will CBD Get Me High? – Can I Overdose On Cannabis?
What Is The Difference Between Marijuana And Hemp?
Hemp plants and marijuana plants are both a variety of cannabis plants. It is important to note that hemp and marijuana are not two different species. In fact, they are the same plant but with a different cannabinoid profile.
Marijuana is a cannabis plant that contains more than 0.3% of THC. The THC in marijuana is strong enough to provide a user with intoxicating and psychoactive effects, thereby making you ‘high.’ Marijuana is mainly associated with recreational use, and many states are now legalizing it. However, it remains federally illegal, and users may be required to obtain a medical card to use medical marijuana products.
On the other hand, growing conditions can be manipulated to germinate cannabis plants that contain less than 0.3% of THC. These kinds of plants are what we call hemp/ industrial hemp plants. The THC amount in hemp is not strong enough to give a user any psychoactive or intoxicating effects. It is mainly associated with medical use. Hemp is federally legal, and people can grow and buy its derivatives without the need for a medical license.
Will CBD Get Me High?
The correct answer is no. CBD will not get you high. Cannabidiol, AKA CBD, is the non-intoxicating and non-psychoactive cannabinoid that occurs naturally in cannabis plants. In fact, research shows that CBD can be used to counteract the high caused by THC. So if you ever get too high on marijuana, you might want to take a few CBD oil drops.
And What’s The Difference Between Indica And Sativa?
Anecdotally speaking, Indica is the species of the cannabis plants that contain a high CBD level, while Sativa is the strain that possesses a high THC content. Sativas provide users with a cerebral buzz, mind high, and increased energy. That’s why they are mainly used for recreational purposes.
Indicas provide you with highly relaxing effects, and increased happiness, and sleepiness. Hence, Indicas are ideal for nighttime when you’re just about to take a rest from a long day.
Can I Overdose On Cannabis?
No! Nobody has ever overdosed on cannabis, and you won’t be the first. Cannabis has been around for many decades now, and yet, there have not been any reported deaths directly connected to it.
According to doctors, it’s unlikely to consume enough cannabis to overdose. However, please note that overconsumption, abuse, and misuse of cannabis will yield undesirable side effects like extreme paranoia and increased heart rate.
What Is The Best Way To Consume Marijuana?
There is no right or wrong way to consume marijuana. The method you use to consume your weed depends on personal preference. For instance, while you may be feeling like you’re on top of the world smoking marijuana, someone else might consider it unhealthy and opt to vape or ingest an edible.
Perhaps the most important thing to consider when deciding the ideal method of consumption is the onset and duration of effects. Say you want to experience near-instant effects for quick relief, vaping, smoking, dabbing, and taking CBD oil sublingually will do that. Topical creams also provide fast relief, but eating edibles take much longer(up to 2hrs) for the effects to kick in.
Will Marijuana Kill My Brain Cells?
The answer to this question is relatively straightforward. Research into whether cannabis can kill a user’s brain cells is still ongoing. However, current studies show that frequent use of marijuana can affect your memory and IQ, and slow down your response rate.
These answers to the most commonly asked questions about marijuana will clear up any confusion and false beliefs about the plant. However, marijuana is an ever-growing industry, and since it is relatively new on the market, research surrounding it is still in its early stages. As such, new marijuana facts and questions will keep arising. Therefore, we advise that you continue doing more research to understand the plant better.
