Do You Get High from Smoking High-CBD, Low-THC Cannabis Flower? (One Step Above Hemp?)

The “high” associated with THC stems from its interaction with CB1 receptors. In contrast, CBD does not directly attach to CB1 or CB2 receptors, a distinction that prevents it from eliciting the same intoxicating impact as THC. Interestingly, when CBD and THC are consumed concurrently, CBD’s interaction with the receptors can obstruct THC from binding effectively, thus mitigating specific effects typically linked to THC consumption.
