Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the two most prominent cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, and is extracted from the stalks, leaves and flowers. Chow420 supports CBD extracted from the industrial hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) plant, which has been bred for a high concentration of CBD, and a low concentration of delta-9-THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), the other most prominent cannabinoid. Current studies are finding an increasing number of potential healing properties associated with CBD with little risk for negative side effects. Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive. It is an anti-psychoactive ingredient and can be used to treat the effects of THC.
CBD can come in the form of gummies, capsules, vapes, flower, oil & tinctures, concentrates, edibles and topicals. To experience the effects in faster, it is advisable to take oils, vapes and flower which are absorbed quicker into the bloodstream. Gummies and edibles first pass through the digestive system, while topicals might not be absorbed in sufficient quantities for optimal effect beyong skincare modulation.

So you've probably heard about CBD from a friend or seen it somewher on a wellness blog or health store. People say it works magic for pain, sleep, focus and overall well-being. It also seems easy to take; as gummies, oils and tinctures, capsules, smokable flower and edibles. At this point you want to try it...
But you concern is, will it make me high ? After all it is cannabis, so isn't there a chance that I start tripping ? In short, No! CBD cannot make you high. CBD is different from THC and, on its own, does not have any psychoactive properties. Hence, no such effect. To get that euphoric high so closely associated with marijuana, there has to be siginificant levels of THC, tetrahydrocannabinol in the product. CBD on the other hand is a different compound and even where you have CBD products with THC content levels, the limit is legally set at 0.3% by dry weight .
Hmm.. not still convinced ?
Ok let's go deeper. Both CBD and THC can be found in the cannabis sativa plant. Yest you heard that right. cannabis. But as you see, they are different entities. Separate compounds. While not able to get you high, CBD can help get you relaxed, get healthful sleep and even contribute to pain relief. CBD actively interacts with the CB1 and CB2 receptors of our endocannabinoid system to module these different activites. All this is done without the euphoric high derived from THC which is preponderant in marijuana.
CBD comes in various forms. These include oils and tinctures, edibles, capsules, creams and lotions, gummies and vapes.
Oils and Tinctures: This medium presents a potent option for individuals seeking immediate effect. Using a dropper the oil or tincture can be placed under the tongue where they are easily absorbed through the sub-lingual membranes.
Edibles: CBD edibles present a familiar and easy path for CBD consumption. Available in chocolates, biscuits, beer, wine and different snacks, CBD edibles come in food forms that incorporate well into the eating regimen of most people. These have to be ingested first before the effects are felt. So it presents a suitable medium for those seeking delayed effect.
Capsules: CBD is also available in capsule and pill form. These capsules can be taken like supplements for use toward enhancing sleep health, digestive problems and also possibly for seizure problems. Capsules and pills take longer to be absorbed by the body.
Creams and Lotions (Topicals): CBD infused topicals can help alleviate skin inflammation, swellings and be applied on areas experiencing joint and muscle pain. These CBD-infused topicals interact with endocanninoid receptors in the skin to module response to different conditions and states.
Gummies: Gummies are perhaps one of the most popular ways of taking CBD. Multi-colored attractive and beautiful products, gummies are a less complicated way of taking your CBD needs. Individual metabolism plays a significat role in determining how fast it takes for the product to be absorbed.
Vapes: Vaping CBD oil is a quick way to attain immediate effect when taking CBD. The product goes straight into the bloodstream when taken this way.
CBD vs THC
While both CBD and THC bind with the brain's CB1 receptors, CBD manifests its interaction in a different way. Studies claim that CBD barely attaches itself to the receptor and even blocks any euphoric effect from happening. Thus, when you take CBD with THC, the latter does not product as intense of a high as it would in isolation.
Full Spectrum CBD: Yes
Broad Spectrum CBD: No
Isolate CBD: No
Hemp Seed Oil: No
The drug tests seek to detect THC, therefore only full spectrum CBD, which has small amounts of THC (<0.3%), will trigger a positive result on a drug test
CBD, also known as cannabidiol, derived from hemp is legal under federal law in all 50 states, thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill. Regarding legality, people usually worry about its relationship with marijuana and any potential similarities with severe implications. However, though industrial hemp (from which CBD is derived) and marijuana are both obtained from the cannabis sativa plant, they are not the same thing. Legally speaking, ndustrial hemp is defined as the cannabis plant with less thab 0.3 % of THC content. THC is the compound that causes the psychedelic effect in marijuana. Perhaps, the most popularly evoked aspect of cannabis in our workd today.
Nevertheless, it is still up to individual states to decide on what particular products are allowed or inhibited. There are also stipulations about general or medical use that differe by state. In general states allow legalized CBD products approved by the FDA. But there is some variation.
Here are some highlights from across the country:
Texas: Use of CBD is legal as long as it remains below the 0.3% THC level threshold. But for medical usage, THC levels can be as high as 0.5%.
Utah: It is legal to use CBD oil with less than 0.3% THC content. CBD edibles are illegal, except gelatin cubes.
Wisconsin: The situation in Wisconsin remains rather transluscent. While possession is considered a misdemeanor and even punishable by actual jail time, the state Attorney-General has advised law enforcement not to enforce the law. It will be prudent to obtain a physician's certificate or other advisory if you intend to use CBD in this state.
North Carolina: Illegal to grow hemp in general. For medical use, hemp cannot contain more than 0.9% THC.
Illinois: FDA-approved CBD products with THC level below 0.3% are legal.
Pennsylvania: FDA-approved CBD products with THC level below 0.3% are legal.
New York: FDA-approved CBD products with THC level below 0.3% are legal.
