Can CBD get you high?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), another compound found in cannabis, CBD does not produce the characteristic "high" associated with cannabis use.

While CBD can produce some mild effects, such as relaxation and pain relief, it does not have the same intoxicating effects as THC. So, CBD cannot get you high in the same way that THC can.

However, it's worth noting that some CBD products may contain trace amounts of THC, which could potentially produce a mild psychoactive effect. The amount of THC in these products is typically very low, and in most cases, it is not enough to produce a noticeable high.
