Hey, my name is Paul Devlin and I’m one of the founders of Sati Organics thanks for clicking over. What we’re to talk about today is can you get high from taking CBD. There’s a lot of people worried about this, they associate CBD with marijuana and they associate marijuana with getting stoned.
The simple answer to the question is No. CBD or cannabidiol is not an intoxicant in any way. Its sister molecule THC or tetrahydrocannabinol that’s the molecule that you get high from.
CBD is produced by the cannabis Sativa plant and now here’s what gets a little confusing. What’s actually the difference between hemp and marijuana? Well, the difference is that there really isn’t a whole lot of difference. They’re both cannabis Sativa. The difference is actually a technical difference, it’s a legal definition, that was just signed into law in the 2018 farm bill. It states that hemp is defined as cannabis Sativa or marijuana with less than 0.3 percent THC. Now, to give you some perspective on that. The average marijuana plant the or bud that you might smoke would have about 16% or 17% THC by weight. With that much THC when you heat it, that psychoactive ingredient is gonna get you stoned whereas hemp is point three percent. What that means is you’ve got 50 times the THC in marijuana. That is the technical definition.
So, if you’re getting your CBD products derived from hemp there’s really no chance at all of noticing anything in terms of being intoxicated since it’s 5000 percent less intoxicating than marijuana. I hope that was helpful. we’re gonna be producing lots of these short videos so stay tuned and we’ll catch you on the next one.
