What Does CBD Feel Like?

Leaf Organics CBD Stockport

The questions we get asked the most are ‘what does CBD feel like’ and ’will I get high?’ very simply, the answer is no. Leaf Organics CBD does not get you high and does not have the psychoactive properties usually associated with cannabis products.

What Is CBD Made From?

When we think of CBD there is a lot of misconception that it is the same as cannabis.  CBD is made from Industrial Hemp, which is different to Marijuana. All Leaf Organics products are legal and follow all the legislation in the UK.

Will CBD Cause Drowsiness?

Another concern people have with taking CBD is that it could make you feel drowsy.  The calm feeling you get when taking CBD is completely different to the one experienced when taking a sedative such as sleeping tablets. Some users even report that CBD has made them feel more focused. You will be able to drive and go about your daily life.

CBD can help you Sleep because it does help the user relax and has been shown to help regulate hormone production associated with the sleep cycle.

Whilst these two effects seem paradoxical, a larger dose taken all at once can improve sleep, whereas a lower amount might stimulate you and help you focus, it is all down to CBD dosage.

For wakefulness, a small dose of around 10mg of CBD is usually recommended. When you want to relax and fall asleep a larger dose can be effective. The two of these together help keep the sleep cycle on track. We recommend that you split your dose into two, half the dose in the morning and the other half 1 hour before bedtime.

A 2014 study looked at this and found 15mg was enough for wakefulness, while a higher dose would have the opposite effect. Using a higher dose of CBD is unlikely to make you feel sedated or drowsy.

What Effects Does CBD have on Mood?

CBD can have a positive effect on mood, many people report a feeling of well-being.  

CBD is proving to be very beneficial for people who struggle with anxiety.

Will I Feel the Effects Right Away?

When taking CBD, many users expect it to have immediate effects.  Common effects, such as calmness and nausea relief are normally felt within 15 to 30 minutes. Other benefits such as anxiety, pain and inflammation can take a few days to a few weeks to see improvements, this will vary from person to person.  We recommend that users allow at least six to eight weeks for CBD to show improvements, much like any other health supplement.

If you’re new to CBD, the main message is that it does not have the same effects that are commonly known when using a cannabis product. You are not going to get high or have an increased appetite. What you will most likely experience is the positive benefits that CBD has to offer. These can include feeling calmer, reduced anxiety, increased wakefulness, improved sleep and relief from pain and inflammation.
