How is CBD different from THC?
Before worrying about how taking CBD feels like, it's important to clear any doubt in your mind that your experience might be anywhere close to someone who is taking THC. The two compounds are different in various ways.
To begin with, THC causes a high in users while CBD doesn’t. Even though they are both cannabinoids, they interact with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) differently.
THC is able to alter the mind of the user because it binds with the CB1 receptors of the ECS which are found in the brain. It activates these receptors which is what causes a high resulting in its psychoactive properties.

CBD on the other hands interacts with the CB1 and CB2 receptors in a different way. Instead of binding directly to the receptors, CBD influences them in different ways but it doesn’t bind or activate the receptors. Because of this, taking CBD does not result in a high as is the case with THC.
If you’re wondering what it feels like to take CBD these few examples should give you a good idea. It’s important to remember that people are different and the CBD might react differently in different people. While no case of adverse effects has been reported it’s important to consult with your doctor before taking CBD especially if you have been taking other types of medications just to be on the safe side. You should also start with small amounts as you experiment and work your way up.
