Can we have a bad trip with CBD ?

This question, many of you are probably asking yourselves. CBD is associated in the collective imagination with cannabis and therefore with the image of a drug known for its psychoactive effects. Many people, misinformed, confuse THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol) and talk about "CBD that makes you high". But, as you may have noticed, CBD-based products are sold over the counter, although regulated. This authorization is explained by a simple and indisputable fact: CBD consumption does not make you high and presents no risk of experiencing a CBD bad trip.

CBD does not make you high

So, CBD that makes you high: reality or misinformation? It is necessary to be very precise and rigorous to remove doubts about the reality of the effects of CBD. Hemp contains many substances, including cannabinoids. It is these cannabinoids that have an active effect on the human body, and the two most active are THC and CBD. Cannabis that is illegal to sell (whether it is weed, hashish or other possible forms) is a psychotropic product that includes a high level of THC, which has the effect of altering our state of consciousness. This means that it can cause feelings of drunkenness, "high" and loss of control (e.g. unwarranted laughter). It is not uncommon for these sensations to be unpleasant, both physically (dizziness, cold sweats...) and mentally (hallucinations, stress, unreasonable fears...). It is what the users qualify as "bad trip". This is explained by the presence in great quantity of the molecule known as THC which generates these "high" effects. CBD does not represent any danger, neither the one to get high (and to lose control) and even less the one to live a "bad trip CBD". After several years of debate and analysis, the WHO (World Health Organization) has moreover ruled in favor of the safety of CBD, qualified as a common product and taken out of the table of narcotics where it was classified until now.

No psychoactive effect

THC by its psychoactive effects is considered a narcotic product and is illegal in France. The impact of THC is explained by the fact that this molecule will bind to receptors in the nervous system. This can lead to undesirable effects (the bad trip), but also to addiction and in some cases psychosis. No similar risk with the consumption of CBD flowers. This one is not a psychoactive substance, since it binds to receptors of the immune system and not those of the nervous system. Moreover, French legislation requires all CBD products to maintain a THC level below 0.3% to avoid adverse effects. So there is no chance of experiencing a CBD bad trip. Simple and clear.

CBD and THC: the differences

In order to facilitate the comparison between these two substances, we have developed a very explicit comparison:


  • A psychoactive substance that is illegal in France.
  • A significant risk of very unpleasant side effects, the "bad trip".
  • The risk of accelerating the onset of mental pathologies, such as schizophrenia.
  • An addictive substance.


  • A legal, over-the-counter substance
  • No risk of CBD bad trip, it is not a psychotropic or psychoactive substance.
  • A substance that can provide relief from fatigue, stress or poor sleep
  • No risk of addiction

The effects of cannabidiol

The effects of cannabidiol

Consuming CBD, cannabidiol, provides a number of effects that are appreciated by users. We must distinguish here between therapeutic use, and recreational use. Many studies are underway to determine more rigorously the effects of CBD on the body. A CBD-based drug is already authorized for sale, undoubtedly paving the way for other authorizations. But the point here is to talk about the expected effects of a recreational use of CBD. We can distinguish the effects on the body from those on the mind. Among the physical sensations, frequently described by users, regularly come back: muscular relaxation, relief from fatigue and chronic pain, an easier sleep and a better quality sleep. Some people also mention beneficial effects on intestinal disorders. Regarding the effects on the mind, all users agree to recognize a soothing and relaxing effect, much appreciated in the face of stress, brought by the variety of hemp known as Indica. Conversely, Sativa, another variety seems to bring a more energizing and energizing effect with a positive effect on mood. As you can see, we are far from the fantasy of the CBD bad trip...

No danger with CBD consumption

Forget about the misinformers who try to scare you by mentioning a possible CBD bad trip or who try to manipulate you by selling you a CBD high. CBD is not dangerous, it does not cause side effects (except in exceptional cases, among which drowsiness) and does not generate addiction. Recall that the level of THC has been kept below the legally defined level of 0.3%. It is however recommended, when discovering CBD to start with low dosages to discover the product. Do not hesitate also to diversify your modes of consumption in order to find the one that suits you best. The most common are vaping, infusion or culinary addition. The effects of cannabidiol naturally fade over time, usually after 2-3 hours.
