Too Much Of A Good Thing
We’ve all been there. Maybe you took one too many blunt hits, or you seriously underestimated that edible. Now, you’re trapped in a weed spiral, feeling uncomfortable from a scary high. Don’t panic! Contrary to popular belief, you don’t just have to ride out your high. CBD is here to help.*
CBD vs. THC
Did you know that CBD can actually counteract the psychoactive effects of THC? While it’s true that CBD comes from the same plant as THC, CBD doesn’t get you high. Instead, CBD actually helps counteract the paranoid, “scary high” feelings of THC. Although THC and CBD are two distinctive compounds, they work together in interesting ways. For example, CBD has been found to enhance THC’s properties while diminishing the paranoia it can cause. CBD diminishes certain effects (like munchies, sleepiness and the euphoric, buzzy high of THC) while augmenting others.
Think of CBD and the yin to THC’s yang.
How To Use CBD To Counteract The “Scary High”
With the cannabis industry booming, there are hundreds of CBD products to choose from. You might already have a favorite in your back pocket, for just such an occasion! Here are a couple pointers for picking your CBD fix.
1. Look for Lab Tested Products
This is the only real way to guarantee your products’ cannabinoid content. Without a lab test, you won’t be able to know for sure how much CBD, THC or other cannabinoids are present. Brothers products are all lab certified, and use only the finest-grade hemp-derived CBD available!*
2. Skip The Vape
Smoking or vaping CBD-rich strains is probably the fastest way to achieve relief. The downside? Those strains may still contain THC and other cannabinoids, which will impact your high. Be sure to pay close attention to the THC:CBD ratios in your product or strain. To be safe, skip the vape and ingest a CBD-only edible or tea blend.
The Quick Fix
For a quick fix, we recommend a Bulletproof CBD Chai Tea Latte. Our recipe has a one-two punch of CBD from both our Chai Awakening Hemp CBD Tea and our Wild Rosin CBD Honey. The tea is rehydrating, with just a nudge of caffeine to get you movin’.
In a pinch, we rely on one of our most relaxing tea blend – Mellow Mint Hemp CBD Tea. This blend features a stomach-soothing blend of NW-grown peppermint and spearmint plus an estimated 60MG of CBD per bag.
The next time you find yourself confronted by a “scary high,” r-e-l-a-x, brew yourself a CBD Chai Tea Latte or a mug of Mellow Mint and remember that CBD has got your back!
