Cannabidiol, or CBD, has been gaining popularity over the past few years. According to a 2020 Single care study, one-third of Americans have used CBD. Many consumers look to CBD as a natural alternative to help manage discomfort as well as to help with relaxation and sleep support. CBD is one of the many compounds found in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC, CBD does not have any psychoactive effects. It will not produce a high or alter your state of mind. Without the mental high associated with THC, many CBD consumers find that CBD helps as a natural health solution without impacting thinking or causing any mental high.

However, many are curious if CBD products can also be effective with little to no THC. This article will explain how cannabinoids work in the body and how you can still have an effective natural product with little to no THC.

Clinical data has demonstrated the health benefits of CBD ( The National Center for Biotechnology Information published a 2021 retrospective observational study. The study examined pain, anxiety, and depression symptoms in 279 participants over 18 years old and found that CBD-rich treatment benefits patients with moderate to severe symptoms.

How cannabinoids work in the body

While THC and CBD are two of the more well-known cannabinoids, there are over 100 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant that affect the body differently. These cannabinoids act on the body’s endocannabinoid system, which is made up of a series of receptors throughout the body.

 According to HealthLine, the endocannabinoid system is linked to immune system responses such as inflammation, mood, sleep, stress, and others ( ). While research is still ongoing, preliminary research shows that CBD and THC interact differently with the body’s endocannabinoid system. This is why CBD and THC affect the body differently, with only THC giving you a high.

The bottom line

While THC has been demonstrated to have benefits, it can also give a consumer a mental “high” that can affect day-to-day activities. Many consumers who use CBD products like CBD gummies and CBD oils can get the natural benefits they want without the mental high that can impact their daily activities.

 CBD was federally legalized by the 2018 Farm Bill, which allowed for CBD products containing less than 0.3% THC in the United States. There are many different options for CBD products. Broad-spectrum CBD gummies offer a convenient way to consume CBD while tasting good. Full spectrum CBD options include a federally legal amount of THC (up to 0.3%), which offers consumers an option to consume trace amounts of THC, but there is not enough to get a mental high.
