No. CBD is non-intoxicating in its effects. It does not produce feelings of euphoria, stupor, or loss of control; effects commonly associated with THC ingestion.
Research suggests that this is due to the fact that CBD does not bind to the CB1 receptor in the same way that THC does. In fact, CBD has been shown in some studies to modulate or reduce the intoxicating effects of THC.
While the terms are used synonymously sometimes, there is a difference. Concentrates are made with the goal in mind that the producer only wants to keep the most desirable plant compounds: terpenes and other cannabinoids (in our case all of the psychoactive is removed or within legal limitations), with the end goal of vaping or dabbing the product.
CBD oil, which you probably know as CBD oil drops or tinctures, are bonded with a carrier oil to help with the ingestion absorption process. In a sense, you can say concentrates are meant for vaporization.
Concentrates are most efficiently dabbed through vaporization. Like our Habit concentrates, a dab the size of a grain of rice and you are good to go. You can also cook with them if they are decarboxylated.
If you are looking to dab or cook with your CBD product then yes. If you are looking for a full profile product that contains all of the proposed benefits of terpenes, CBD, and other non-psychoactive cannabinoids then yes. Lastly, if you are looking for an emphasis on taste, then yes.
CBD concentrates are a great and QUICK way to intake a large dose of cannabinoids and terpenes. CBD dab effects have been described as “the best and quickest way to get your CBD fix” by many members of our community and CBD consumers in general.
Why do people take CBD dabs? To chill their anxiety, to increase their focus, help alleviate pain and to help with sleep problems. This product requires more hardware such as a dab rig or vape pen so typically the user is more experienced.
