Why Do People Smoke High CBD Strains Of Cannabis?

Normally, people smoke CBD for an immediate effect. For example, to ease anxiety immediately before an exam or a big presentation. CBD products come packaged as an e-liquid. Consumers inhale the e-liquids with a vaporizer. However, CBD ‘edibles’ and oil are the most popular ways to consume this cannabinoid. 

The most common use of CBD is to alleviate chronic pain and reduce the reliance on medication. Scientific Research Labs in Israel first started the study on pain phenomena. Later on, Spain and the US followed the research. With all the clinical research out there was one thing that was clear: CBD sure does act as a painkiller for chronic pain.

Studies have shown that CBD can also be a good treatment option for people suffering from anxiety and stress. High THC-containing strains of cannabis could bring about feelings of paranoia. You can use high-CBD strains to help with PTSD, panic disorder, OCD, and general anxiety disorder. 

The Effects Of Smoking Low-THC, High-CBD Cannabis

Cannabis farmers have been focused on producing cannabis strains with the highest THC content possible. This is because the higher the THC content in the strain, the more stoned you will be from consuming it. Now, people aren’t using cannabis just to get stoned. CBD is one of the most therapeutic, healing parts of the plant. Growers are now producing more high-CBD cannabis.

While CBD won’t get you stoned, it provides you with a sense of peace and well being. After smoking CBD cannabis, there will be a change in mood, just not a drastic one that either has you talking a mile a minute or locked to the couch. The feeling is cerebral and one of well being. The low-THC strains of cannabis make you feel comfortable in your own skin and have the healing benefits of whole plant medication.

In A Nutshell…

The high THC strain gets you really high, while the hemp CBD strain doesn’t get you high at all. The strain that has a little THC and a lot of CBD will have you feeling comfortable enough without altering your state of mind too much. Some people prefer to smoke cannabis flowers to help them quit smoking cigarettes, however more research is needed to confirm this.

My brother is moving to Colorado and he wants to start looking into smoking CBD flower but we weren’t sure if it would get him high or not.

  3. Nice post Alyssha. I have been smoking cannabis since November 2019 and have not seen or feel any side effects or any health related issue till now. I met with an accident back in 2018 which left me with chronic pain all over the body, I had tried many medicine but the only thing worked for me was cannabis. Till the date I have not worried or cared about using any other medicine to help reducing pain. It also helped me to deal with anxiety and nervousness after the accident.
