Q: Will your products get me high?

A: Nope! Most people have also heard of a cannabinoid called THC, which is the compound in cannabis that creates a high effect. Unlike THC, CBD (cannabidiol) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid so the recommended dose of our products will not get you high. There are small amounts of other cannabinoids including CBG, CBC, Terpenes and a very small amount of THC.

Some users report a calming, relaxing feeling from CBD while others do not experience this effect.
