Frequently Asked Questions from Beginners

CBD is a seemingly popular product these days, which is why there could be a great deal of confusion about the product. One of the main points of confusion comes from the media often using the term marijuana when referring to hemp, and vice versa. One of the biggest concerns is whether or not it causes a high or any other side effects. We’re going to answer each of these questions in brief and eliminate any doubts you might have about CBD products.

Does CBD Oil Get You High?

No, CBD oil does not cause a high. Properly produced CBD oil from hemp does not have THC in high enough concentrations to cause a high being only 0.3% if any. THC effects particular receptors in the brain which alters brain chemistry changes consciousness. CBD does not affect these receptors. CBD might actually prevent them from reacting to THC and so minimizing its effects. CBD made by some manufacturers can contain a small trace of THC. However, Pure Magix’s Full spectrum CBD does contain 0.3% of THC, but isn’t enough for you to feel that euphoric high, because CBD is an antagonist of CB1 receptors in the brain meaning it blocks almost all intoxicating effects CB1 receptors might have on the brain. CBD signals the ECS to release more of the cannabinoids, in an attempt to restore homeostasis. Which is one of the reasons why CBD is mostly used to fight various health conditions. It is important to know that all human bodies are in fact quite different, and if taking large amounts of this product, CBD may cause drowsiness in some users.

What Are the Side Effects of CBD Oil?

Sometimes organic compounds can have both appropriate effects, and unwanted effects. Calling the unwanted effects, adverse side effects. In able to determine the adverse side effects, you need to know what the appropriate effects are. For example, what one person desires from CBD another person might consider that an unwanted side effect such as drowsiness. Some people take CBD oil to help support a good night’s sleep but may also feel some drowsiness throughout the day. If you want to feel awake during the day, feeling sleepy would be an unwanted side effect.

Will CBD Make Me Drowsy?

CBD oil has what are called biphasic properties, meaning low and high doses will produces opposite effects. When something has a biphasic effect what can be relieved at a smaller dose can be amplified at a higher dose. CBD oil may have different effects depending on the serving and potency. Taken in the recommended serving size CBD is unlikely to cause drowsiness. However, if you use CBD in higher servings, it then has the potential to cause drowsiness. Let’s use alcohol as an example. Alcohol has biphasic properties. Below a specific blood level, alcohol provides a stimulating effect and can make its user more active and social, while larger amounts can have a drowsiness effect resulting in unconsciousness.

Can I Give My Pet CBD Oil?

Of course, high quality CBD is safe for pets. However, size and activity level of your furry little friend will determine the accurate serving size. Ranging in weight from under a pound for rodents to hundreds of pounds for animals such as cows and horses. Some pets don’t get much exercise while others are very active and have a higher metabolism, meaning the effects of CBD may vary. If you’re considering CBD for your pet, it would be a good idea to talk to your pet’s veterinarian who is familiar with CBD and how it can benefit your pet before you give them any CBD in the form of Oil tinctures, or dog treats.
