More about CBD oil
Is CBD oil psychoactive?
CBD is not psychoactive because it doesn’t take the same “pathways” in your brain that THC does. These pathways, called CB1 receptors, are located in the brain and are responsible for the effects of THC. The pathways that CBD takes, are called CB2 receptors.
CB1 receptors are primarily found in the brain and central nervous system, and CB2 receptors are found in the immunesystem and a few organs.
A study in 2011 concluded that CBD “doesn’t interfere with different psychomotor and psychological functions”. Also written was that CBD is “well tolerable and safe”, even at high doses.
