Everyone knows the thing that makes CBD flower different from weed is that it doesn’t get you high. Is there a type of CBD flower that does get you high, though, and if so, why? In this guide, we’ll explore what CBD hemp flower really is, and we’ll introduce you to a type of hemp that does, in fact, get you high.
Is there a CBD that makes you feel high?
No, CBD is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid, which means it will not get you high no matter how much of it you use. Most people describe the effect of CBD as being mild and relaxing without any major sense of euphoria or head changes.
Some CBD products contain up to 0.3% THC, but this ratio is too low to induce a feeling of intoxication. There are certain types of hemp that do get you high, but they do not usually contain CBD.
What is a high-CBD strain?
A high-CBD strain is simply a strain of hemp flower that contains high concentrations of CBD. The “high” in high-CBD refers to the concentration of cannabinoids in hemp flower, not the effects they offer.
Hemp strains are generally considered to be high-CBD when they contain more than 15% CBD. Some connoisseur-bred hemp flower strains contain more than 25% CBD nowadays.
- Secret Nature Frosted Kush High-CBD Flower Strain review – Steven V. “Doesn’t get you high, but absolutely smooths out the edges!” ★★★★★ “I ordered this thinking it would get me high, to add to my collection of herb I rarely smoke because I don’t often want to be high. But I love the effects of CBD. It arrived on a day off so I tried it. I was immediately balanced and not a bit high! That’s when I noticed the disclaimer ‘this product won’t get you high!’”
Will a high-CBD strain get you high?
No, high-CBD strains of hemp flower do not make you feel high. Instead, the unusually high concentrations of CBD these strains contain allow you to experience the benefits of this cannabinoid beyond their usual limits.
Hemp smokers generally describe the effects of CBD flower as being much more potent than the effects of other types of CBD products they’ve tried. The more CBD your hemp flower contains, the stronger the effects it will deliver.
Is there a type of hemp that makes you feel high?
Even though CBD flower will never make you feel high, there are certain types of hemp flower that do have intoxicating effects. The hemp cannabinoid delta 8 THC, for instance, has effects remarkably similar to those of its more well-known delta 9 variant, but due to its unique chemical structure, delta 8 is generally considered to be hemp, not marijuana.
- Secret Nature Super 8 – Delta 8 THC Vape Cartridge review – Marianne T. “10/10 Recommend!” ★★★★★ “I’ve recently been diagnosed with frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis) which limits my mobility and is extremely painful. Secret Nature Delta 8 THC is a god send! It’s been helping me manage my pain immensely. And as an added bonus has also been helping with my anxiety and insomnia. The quality is Grade A and the terpes are strong with this one! The effects are super relaxing- it’s as if it melts away any stress and tension in your body.”
Does CBG flower get you high?
No, CBG hemp flower does not get you high because CBG is just like CBD in that it is non-intoxicating. The effects of CBD and CBG are slightly different, but neither cannabinoid causes the type of heavy intoxication that is associated with members of the THC family.
Don’t let CBG’s similarity to CBD fool you. It’s an important cannabinoid in its own right, and the original form of CBG, CBGA, is currently being researched quite extensively by the international scientific community for a variety of different applications.
Does delta 8 flower get you high?
Yes, delta 8 THC has an intoxicating effect very reminiscent of its delta 9 cousin. Once you have some experience under your belt, the minor differences between delta 8 and delta 9 become more apparent, but the most important takeaway is that, hemp-derived or no, delta 8 is most assuredly THC, not some other cannabinoid.
The nation is still getting used to the shock of being able to buy THC online. Unfortunately, the vast majority of delta 8 products remain very low-quality with brands like Secret Nature standing out as rare outliers.
- Secret Nature Elysian Secret OG Delta 8 THC Hemp Flower review – Amanda H. “Wonderful Strain” ★★★★★ “Another wonderful strain variation from Secret Nature. The Delta 8 has changed the game for me! taste is smooth and pleasant. I love the new package design. It will help your mind and body unwind no matter what you’ve done all day. Great mood enhancer that doesn’t wipe you out.”
Delta 8: the hemp that gets you high
America has suffered under cannabis prohibition for long enough, and delta 8 is proving to be the loose thread that undoes the whole corrupt, racist institution. Proving the free market is perfectly capable of regulating itself, low-quality, potentially dangerous delta 8 products are disappearing all the time as more and more hemp users become aware of better alternatives like Secret Nature.
We have no idea what the future of hemp may bring, and it looks like the country in general is in for a wild ride over the next few years. It will remain a fact, though, that delta 8 is the type of hemp that gets you high, perfectly complementing the non-intoxicating benefits of CBD, CBG, CBN, and CBC.
Hemp flower is constantly evolving
The Cannabis sativa plant has been the perennial companion of mankind for a reason. For a single plant, it has such a great deal to offer, and it’s so receptive to the touch of human hands and hearts.
We wanted a version of cannabis but didn’t get you high and you could sell online, and the plant provided CBD. We then asked for an alternative to THC to be found in hemp, and along came delta 8.
What further prayers will be answered by hemp as we progress into the 21st century? Only time will tell, but Secret Nature will remain the epicenter of hemp culture throughout any transformations.
