CBD stands for ‘cannabidiol’, it is a naturally occurring cannabinoid substance derived from Hemp plants or Cannabis plants. THC (or Tetrahydrocannabinol) is also a cannabinoid substance but it is derived only from Cannabis plants. While THC induces a high or an intoxicating feeling of heightened euphoria and alters the psychoactivity, cannabidiol does not induce such high.
What are the differences between cannabidiol and THC?
Cannabidiol and THC both target the cannabinoid receptors in the brain, especially the CB1 receptors. While THC triggers the receptor to induce the high, it does not bind to the CB1 receptors and hence does not induce a high.
Does CBD oil make you high?
Once extracted from the hemp, or the cannabis plant, this compound can be used in a plethora of products. CBD product types will determine whether the source of the product has THC traces or not. While Full-spectrum cannabidiol products may contain trace amounts of THC, Broad-spectrum CBD and its isolates are extremely likely to not have any traces of THC.
Now, it must be noted that even though full-spectrum cannabidiol products may contain traces of THC, it is legal under 0.3% nanogram/ml, which is extremely low to induce any high.
Most of the CBD products are derived from hemp plants which do not have any psychoactive effects on the human body, unlike Cannabis (Marijuana) plants which do.
As some cannabidiol products may have trace amounts of THC, only an extremely high dose of CBD products can even remotely make you high, as you may feel nausea and dizziness if you consume large amounts of THC.
Do CBD gummies get you high?

So, it is safe to say that average doses of cannabidiol gummies will not get you high.
