- Tinctures and sublingual products, typically made with CBD or hemp-derived cannabinoids, will not get a person high. They are designed for precise dosing and are absorbed through the mucous membranes under the tongue, offering potential therapeutic benefits without the psychoactive effects of THC.
- Topical products, such as creams and balms, are applied directly to the skin and do not enter the bloodstream. Therefore, they do not get a person high. Instead, they provide localized relief for conditions like pain, inflammation, or skin issues.
- Smoking or vaping cannabis or hemp flower containing THC will likely produce a high, as the cannabinoids are rapidly absorbed through the lungs and into the bloodstream. However, using hemp-derived CBD or products with minimal THC content should not produce a significant high.
- Baked goods, like edibles, can get a person high if they contain THC. The cannabinoids in these products are metabolized by the liver and can produce potent and lasting effects. However, hemp-derived CBD edibles do not produce a high.
- Similar to baked goods, cannabis or hemp-infused beverages can get a person high if they contain THC. The effects may take longer to kick in compared to smoking but can be potent. CBD-infused beverages do not produce a high.
- Capsules, whether containing THC or CBD, will produce a high only if they contain THC. Capsules with hemp-derived CBD or CBD isolate will not produce a high, as they lack the psychoactive compound.
Oils and Extracts:
- Oils and extracts derived from cannabis plants containing THC will produce a high when ingested. Hemp-derived oils with CBD and minimal THC content will not induce a high. The method of ingestion (e.g., sublingual, oral) can affect the onset and duration of effects.
- Dissolvable strips containing THC will likely produce a high, as they are absorbed through the mouth's mucous membranes. However, strips with CBD or hemp-derived cannabinoids should not result in a significant high.
It's crucial to carefully read product labels and descriptions to understand the cannabinoid content and potential psychoactive effects. Hemp-derived products generally contain minimal THC (0.3% or less), while cannabis-derived products may contain higher levels of THC, leading to intoxication if used in significant amounts.
