Lots of people have reported a euphoric feeling after consuming CBD products, attributing it to the “high” caused by THC. However, CBD itself does not get its user “high” as it is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid. Most people believe the traces of THC in CBD products are still enough to induce the euphoric effect, but that has also been disproved as the trace amounts of THC left in CBD products are not enough to trigger a sufficient or noticeable high. 

WHO noted in a 2017 report on CBD that “in general, clinical studies have reported that even high doses of oral CBD do not cause those [psychoactive] effects that are characteristic for THC and for cannabis rich in THC.". This is mainly because CBD actually blocks the CB1 receptors in the brain, counteracting against THC’s psychoactive effects to decrease the negative side effects of THC.

Users often confuse the calming and relaxation effect brought about by the use of CBD with the “couch-lock” effect of indica cannabis strains. Users also report a “high” after using CBD products after buying impure products made from marijuana-based CBD with high THC levels.
