CBD Flower, Weed That Doesn’t Get You High?
What is CBD Flower and How Does it Work?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the newest trends in the health and wellness arena. The industry is catching a lot of attention and is promoted by our favorite wellness gurus. Most recently, CBD Flower seems to be the topic of conversation and consumers everywhere are asking important questions.
What makes CBD Flower different from the marijuana people smoke to get high? Does CBD Flower get you high? If it doesn’t get you high, how does it work? Slow down and catch a breath; We’re here to provide the answers.
Can CBD Flower Make You Feel High?
To put it simply, no, CBD Flower does not get you high. While CBD Flower and “traditional marijuana” (the kind that does get you high) might look the same, smell the same, and even taste the same, believe us… they are not the same.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is found in “traditional marijuana” in high concentrations and is the primary psychoactive component found in cannabis. In other words, THC is responsible for getting you high, not CBD. Unlike the marijuana containing high concentrations of THC, CBD Flower contains high concentrations of CBD and low concentrations of THC (less than 0.3%).
When choosing the right brand of CBD Flower, make sure to purchase from companies that value transparency and provide easy access to test results, like HoneyRoot Wellness. Please also note that no matter what brand, CBD Flower may contain trace amounts of THC. While it won’t get you high, we certainly do not recommend using it if you have an upcoming drug test.
CBD Flower is the perfect product for quickly providing you with the benefits you already know and love, without getting you high.
Health Benefits of CBD Flower
Just because CBD Flower won’t make you feel high, doesn’t mean it won’t work. While THC is the main component responsible for getting you to feel funny, both CBD and THC offer a variety of health benefits.
While both CBD and THC are used to reduce pain, nausea, and anxiety, CBD has some benefits of its own. CBD, unlike THC, is primarily used for seizures, inflammation, mental disorders, migraines, and depression, in addition to the benefits listed above. It can also help to enhance the beneficial properties of THC.
CBD is tolerated extremely well, even in large doses, and does not produce the same uncomfortable, and sometimes harmful, side effects that occur with the use of THC.
Why Choose CBD Flower?
If you haven’t already come to this conclusion, CBD Flower is right for you if you’d like to reap the benefits of cannabis without getting high from THC. We’d also like to point out that “getting high” isn’t the only side effect you will avoid when choosing CBD Flower.
Some temporary side effects that commonly occur with THC use include red eyes, dry mouth, slow reaction time, coordination issues, high heart rate, and memory loss. While these side effects are not life threatening, they certainly aren’t comfortable. Long-term, THC may even have harmful psychiatric effects. You won’t see this with CBD, even in high doses.
Not only does the use of CBD Flower instead of “traditional marijuana” allow you to maintain control of your body, it delivers powerful health benefits without any annoying or harmful side effects.

New Marijuana Strain Doesn’t Get You High
By Nic Halverson 08 July 2012
I have a hunch this next nugget I’m going to pack the pipe with is going to be a real drag for many card-carrying members (and friends) of the medical marijuana community.
Tikun Olam, a government-approved medical marijuana plantation in northern Israel, has developed a new strain of cannabis that contains very low traces of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive constituent in marijuana that makes users feel high.
This new strain, called Avidekel, still retains the medicinal benefits of marijuana, it just doesn’t make users feel stoned. That’s because it contains less than one percent THC, compared to the Tikun Olam’s most popular strand that contains 23 percent.
While THC may be the most popular of the 60-plus cannabinoids found in marijuana, one of the most important is cannabidiol (CBD), known for its anti-inflammatory benefits. Coupled with low doses of THC, Avidekel boasts a 16 percent concentration if CBD, thus offering to relieve pain without making users feel intoxicated.
No big deal, right? After all, most medical-marijuana patients partake solely for the medicinal benefits, right? Surely they don’t care about getting high?
(We’ll pause here as screams of panic ring out from from the fertile hills of Humboldt County, Calif. to the dispensaries of Boulder, Colo. and on over to the coffee shops of Amsterdam.)
“Sometimes the high is not always what they need. Sometimes it is an unwanted side effect. For some of the people it’s not even pleasant,” Zack Klein, head of development at Tikun Olam, told Reuters.
After researching CBD-enriched cannabis since 2009, Tikun Olam came up with Avidekel six months ago.
Raphael Mechoulam, a professor of medicinal chemistry at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, told Reuters he thought Avidekel is one of a kind.
“It is possible that” Avidekel’s “CBD to THC ratio is the highest among medical marijuana companies in the world, but the industry is not very organised, so one cannot keep exact track of what each company is doing,” he explained.
All you sparkers of the sweet cheeba, I know it sounds like Avidekel threatens to cash your favorite pastime. Though you may be less stoked to toke it, at least the folks at Tikun Olam have your best interest in mind: your health. After all, the real reason behind all those bong rips is because you are afflicted and in no way, shape or form enjoy getting stoned, right?
