How Does CBD Make You Feel?

The Common Feelings Associated with Taking CBD

While many feelings are associated with taking CBD, feeling high is not one of them! Our products are made from hemp CBD, which is naturally devoid of noticeable amounts of THC. THC, short for tetrahydrocannabinol, is the cannabinoid that causes both psychoactive and intoxicating effects. 

CBD is generally talked about as non-psychoactive, but that’s because psychoactive and intoxicating are usually used interchangeably with regards to the cannabinoids found in cannabis. Truth is, any compound that affects your mental state can be considered psychoactive. For CBD, this is the case, even though it does not produce any of the effects associated with drugs commonly regarded as psychoactive. However, CBD can boost your mood, focus, and mental clarity – meaning that it does have an effect on the psyche. 

Many CBD beginners worry about how exactly CBD will make them feel, so we’re here to go over the common feelings most CBD-consumers experience when taking their daily dose of goodness! The good news: they’re all positive and beneficial. 

Less Anxious

Anxiety impacts all of us, whether it’s chronic or acute. Anxiety symptoms can quickly become overwhelming. Moreover, the physical symptoms of anxiety often heighten the mental ones, which in turn re-affect the physical aspects. This on-going feedback loop can result in decreased mental function, panic attacks, and lifelong effects. Taking CBD reduces the presence and severity of symptoms most commonly associated with anxiety. It does this by activating serotonin receptors in the brain, which can improve mood as well as improve neural signaling for heightened brain function.When your brain functions better, the anxious thoughts you experience are less likely to be intrusive and they’re less capable of drastically affecting your mood.


Most users of CBD tend to report feeling far more focused once they begin taking CBD. For some people, this effect comes with consistent use of CBD over time as their body builds up a stronger, well-supplemented endocannabinoid system. When CBD affects serotonin receptors, it not only reduces anxiety but increases energy and focus – two things those with anxiety tend to struggle with. In addition to serotonin signaling, CBD increases the presence of the molecule anandamide in the body. This molecule is thought to improve neuron signaling and your mood, hence its nickname of the “bliss molecule.” Between a positive mindset and a clearer thought process, your focus is sure to improve, making CBD the ideal supplement for school, work, and even just everyday life.

Less Pained

If you experience chronic aches and pains in any capacity, adding CBD to your daily life can be extremely beneficial. CBD blocks the brain’s ability to perceive pain, but in a healthy way. It also reduces inflammation, so sites of soreness aren’t so bothersome. Want to learn more about CBD’s effects on pain and inflammation? Read about them in another blog here!
