Many people assume that you can get high from hemp oil due to its association with cannabis. However, this is incorrect. Although hemp and marijuana both derive from the cannabis plant, they are very different.
Hemp oil is extracted solely from the hemp plant itself. Industrial hemp has been used for centuries as building material, textiles, and medicine. It contains low levels of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the part of the plant responsible for the psychoactive effects of marijuana. Hemp oil contains less than than 0.3 percent THC, which is not enough to cause psychoactive effects, therefore, hemp oil does not get you high.
Some might question what the point of using hemp oil is if it doesn’t get you high. Well, many people use hemp oil because it doesn’t have a psychoactive effect. The feeling of being high can make many people feel anxious and paranoid. Hemp oil alone has many medicinal benefits like antioxidants, proteins and healthy fatty acids without the psychoactive effect.
It’s important to know whether you are using hemp oil, CBD oil or cannabis oil. All are extracted from different sources of the plant and have varying levels of THC. Also, make sure that the product you are using has been lab tested and is using natural ingredients to avoid possible complications.
