Does CBD Make you high?

Does CBD Make you high?

Despite the unclear legality around the laws surrounding CBD don’t worry we clear that up below, one thing that is clear is that CBD does not get you ‘high’. 



CBD aka cannabidiol, is a compound that comes from both the marijuana and hemp plants. The difference is CBD from hemp has a lack of psychoactive effects due to it contains trace (extremely low) amounts of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) the stuff that does get you high, therefore, CBD does NOT get you high. Unlike marijuana that contains high doses of THC and low doses of CBD


LETS GET LEGALLY BLONDE  (great 2001 movie if you haven't seen you need to see) 

THC is restricted from appearing in food products therefore most CBD is extracted from ‘hemp’ but the rules around the legality of CBD and cannabis in the UK are confusing and have created a grey area. This is down to the fact there are various cannabinoids in the cannabis plant, including THC which are classed as controlled substances under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 However, CBD is not one of themphew, therefore it is legal but yet still widely misunderstood. However, the law around CBD is constantly evolving and changing as people are starting to understand and witness the benefits associated with it.  


CBD is becoming increasingly popular and rightly so, as people are starting to see the positive effects it may have, reducing the common but incorrect phrase ‘CBD makes you high’. CBD has been linked to a variety of potential benefits, including pain relief, anxiety reduction, improved mood and sleep. So naturally as people who want to take CBD everyday but sometimes forget, we thought what better way than adding it into our everyday routine, pairing it with our fave drink of all time iced coffee. But that drink didn't exist,  so we created one and named it Ybee – coming soon btw! 

CBD with coffee has hit the CBD industry by storm because people are experiencing how they can reap the benefits of coffee but without the negative effects such as jitters, and crashes, which is reduced by CBD therefore leaving focussed energy.
