How many CBD oil gummies do I have to eat to get high?
Your question is a little wrongly directed. CBD gummies aren’t used to get high. Their purpose is to get the medicinal and therapeutic benefits of CBD. If you are looking for getting high, there are much better alternatives. However, this doesn’t mean you cannot get high eating CBD oil gummies. First, let us understand the basic use of CBD and THC in cannabis plants. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that has proven to have many medicinal and therapeutic benefits. On the other hand, THC is the psychoactive cannabinoid responsible for the high associated with the use of Marijuana. It also has some health benefits, but it is more known for the high it causes.
Generally, people who look at CBD oil gummies for its health benefits, are people who don’t like to associate themselves with cannabis or its high offers. This is why they are often skeptical about making use of CBD oil gummies. However, once they realize that CBD itself doesn’t cause psychoactive effects, they feel more at ease.
What most people don’t realize is there are two sources of CBD. If you are worried about getting high or looking to get high, you should know which source is ideal for you. The two plants CBD is extracted from is – Marijuana and Hemp.
1. CBD extracted from Marijuana:
When your CBD gummy is made out of CBD extracted from Marijuana, the CBD quantity will vary depending on the strain you use. Moreover, there are high chances of oil extract to contain significant amounts of THC. When you buy CBD gummies from a dispensary, you should look at the packaging to see the CBD: THC ratio on the product label. Depending on the ratio, a particular brand of CBD gummy can make you relatively high.
2. CBD extracted from Industrial Hemp:
Hemp has high levels of CBD and barely any traces of THC. To be classified as Industrial Hemp, the plant cannot contain more than 0.3 percent THC. This concentration of THC is scarcely enough to cause any high even if you consume large amounts of concentrated hemp extracts. Hence if you are looking for CBD gummies for their health benefits and not the high, you should lean towards industrial hemp extract CBD oil.
You will not get high eating CBD oil gummies.
In contrast to commonly held belief, CBD does not get you high. It is actually a different compound which is also found in cannabis plant that responsible for creating mind-altering results. The name is THC.
Most of the CBD oil gummies sold in the market only contain CBD and no THC, thus, you are free to eat as many of those as you want, just make sure your stomach can handle them.
CBD gummies won’t get you high. CBD does t get anyone high. It’s not psychoactive in the same way THC is.
THC gummies will. If you are eating them you’ll need a couple.
If you let one dissolve in your mouth it may do it depending on how strong they are.
No amount of CBD will make you high, or stoned, or have any other psychoactive effect.
It will relieve any depression or anxiety you might have. It may also help relieve seizures or tics. It will probably help you sleep better.
For the absolute and utter love of god: DO NOT DO THIS. I’m going to assume you’re relatively inexperienced with marijuana, or at the very least edibles so let me break it down for you.
I’ve been smoking regularly for about 5 years now and use edibles on a regular basis, so let me help you out. Do you know how many mg of THC I use in my edibles, after FIVE YEARS of near daily usage? 50–100 mg and that 100 mg is the ABSOLUTE MAX. So what you’re talking about there is 10x the highest dosage of a pretty consummate stoner. I have taken high doses of edibles before and in my experience it’s pretty much the fucking worst. We’re talking vomiting, panic attacks, feeling like you can’t breathe. And that’s still at probably a quarter of the dose you’re talking. Not to mention adding all that CBD, which in my experience just adds a sleepy, dizzy, icky feeling to your high. Unless you’re a decade-long daily concentrate user (dabs every single day) 1,000mg is obscenely high.
Since I’m assuming you’re fairly new to edibles, here is a reasonable dose to start out. Buy yourself a pack of low THC gummies, somewhere in the 5–10mg range. Then, and I cannot stress this enough, TAKE ONE. And I mean only one. Then you’re going to want to wait 1.5–2 hours to see how the dosage effects you. If you’re not where you need to be you can always take another. If you decide ‘fuck it’ and eat the entire 100mg in the pack you’re just promising yourself about 6 hours of paranoia and misery.
I know that probably seems pretty lame, but it will save you a lot of pain. My parents are new users and are perfectly stoned using 5–10mg edible doses.
P.S. Pro Tip: if the edible tastes like weed, it’s probably not a high quality one. Look for products that use distallate and concentrates, they should provide the intense high you’re looking for with lower doses.
If the CBD gummy product that you are using actually contains CBD, the chances of you getting high are zero. You can take that to the bank. Why? CBD by definition does not contain THC.
Now you may be thinking that CBD and THC both come from the marijuana plant. Don’t both compounds get you high? Well, the reason why CBD is so popular is that you get the benefits of marijuana without getting high.
You don’t have to flunk your drug test. You don’t have to worry about drug residues getting stuck in your hair follicles for a very long time. You don’t have to worry about all that unnecessary drama.
The best is whether you are dealing with anxiety, aches, and pains, inflammation, depression or a long list of other health issues, you may be able to treat or possibly even make those symptoms go away with CBD.
Now, the good news is that CBD can now come in gummy form. A lot of people have a problem with putting CBD oil or extract under their tongue. Fair enough. That’s why CBD gummies, along with other edibles are all the rage.
But just like any other product containing CBD, you have to be very discriminating. Pay close attention to the actual CBD concentration. Research where the company providing the gummy product sourced the CBD.
Is it made from industrial hemp? Are they using all-natural extraction processes? These are the details that you need to pay close attention to so you can rest assure that you are picking the very best CBD gummies you can afford.
The benchmark is the CBD gummy at the very least should not get you high.
Most of these answers are theoretical only, but I can answer from direct experience. Yes you can get high from CBD, if it’s a full spectrum product and you’re very sensitive to THC. I am actually a little high from cbd oil right now. It’s one of the Lazarus Naturals high potency tinctures. I used to smoke a fair amount of pot decades back, but I quit because it was making me too anxious. So I know very well what the effects of THC feel like, and I’m feeling them now. It’s not too bad, but i’d rather not be feeling this way. I suddenly got a little more talkative than normal, which almost was fun for a couple minutes. My body has a slight vibrating feeling, and my energy feels really ungrounded. There’s also a twinge of anxiety, which is probably worse because my brain associates this feeling with anxiety experiences from the past. Like I said, not too bad, but it’s a little uncomfortable. I still have more than half of my bottle left, and it was pretty expensive, so I’ll probably take it just at night now, or else keep my doses very small. After this I’ll probably stick with the isolates.
CBD gummies are just like any other regular gummies or candies, but with cannabidiol (CBD) infused in them.
But what exactly is Cannabidiol?
Cannabidiol is one of the 100+cannabinoids of the cannabis plant and is credited to have several medicinal and therapeutic properties. CBD is believed to be an effective treatment against a myriad of ailments, including anxiety, depression, chronic pain, inflammation, etc. As per the studies, the substance has the ability to interact with the endocannabinoid system of your body and thus alter the production of certain hormones, including serotonin and dopamine.
There are various ways of consuming CBD, such as vaping, tinctures, topicals, and CBD gummies, etc. CBD gummies, though, are gaining a lot of traction among CBD consumers nowadays. They are a very tasty alternative to consuming CBD in the form of tinctures or vapors, as they are in the form of candies. And, as you can perhaps understand, they are very easy to consume. You just pick up your favorite color, put it in your mouth, and chew.
Now, CBD gummies have several other advantages too over other methods, in addition to taste. This particular method of consumption is safer for your lungs, as compared to vaping. The effects of them last a lot longer comparatively. And in the end, its discreetness allows you to consume them literally anywhere.
All these benefits are making CBD gummies more and more popular.

The easiest way of finding out is to read the label and see what you have in percentages. I’m trying to figure out from your question if you are new at cannabis or if you might have something street made & bought.
If I read you right and you have a handful of gummies that are CBD, you are not going to get high. No amount of CBD will get you high. It is a wonderful way to ease the pain for a couple or three hours. I’m a big fan of it.
I find labels on edibles confusing and I find that I prefer to take CBD this way but not a THC heavy mixture such as a sativa. When I buy edibles for others I look at totals of the components like THC. The amount of that material is in a package and from that, I can decide how much THC per candy is in the treat.
If you are new to cannabinoids in general, go with no more than a 10mg “dose”. People will sometimes like to go over edibles and eat them all up. You have to remember the high is a little different and you will be that way for 4 hours or so. It’s better to nibble a little each hour or so to control the amount that will be in your system.

I take from 5–15 milligrams of CBD tincture every 4–6 or so hours, more often if required. I’ve found the diminished pain sometimes brings considerable muscle relaxation, which means I’ve been having muscle tension from the pain. When I’ve relaxed, my body can work more easily and my mind thinks this just. might. be. a. good. time. for. a. nap… However, that generally only happens with 15 or more milligrams and is readily overcome by physical activity, I’ve discovered. It means my pain has lessened and now’s the time to get busy. But, every now and then, what I need is a good, refreshing nap, and I take one.
Read the ingredients and see if there are any other herbs or additives that could be making you drowsy. If you read them and see anything other than the food items needed to make the gummy to hold the CBD oil, I recommend trying another CBD product.
When you are cooking cannabis brownies, for example, you choose how much cannabis flower you put into it.
Let’s imagine you put in 5 grams of cannabis into the brownies and make 10 brownies.
Therefore each brownie has 0.5 grams of cannabis.
Let’s assume the CBD potency of the cannabis you put in the brownies was 20% CBD.
Given that you didn’t burn the brownies and they turned out alright, it means that each brownie now contains 100mg of CBD. That’s because 1 gram is 1000 milligrams and at 20% potency, it would yield 100mg per brownie.
Another factor you must take into account is that when eaten, the bioavailability of CBD is only around 12%, which means that potentially only 12mg of that CBD actually reaches your bloodstream after you eat the brownie. The upside is, that when eaten, the effects last longer compared to when inhaled or ingested sublingually.
You can compare the consumption methods and calculate the cost-effectiveness of various CBD consumption methods with the Simple CBD Cost-effectiveness Calculator.
CBD is not psychoactive and you’re not going to get high no matter how much you take. CBD has been tested in doses up to 1500mg per day in humans and is well tolerated. CBD is also unlikely to cause you to panic or any other negative effects. Most likely, you would experience a calm relaxing afternoon and sleep very well that night. You might have a slight sense of disorientation when you wake up, due to sleeping more deeply, no different that when the kids are gone and you sleep in a while. That’s called waking well rested and is probably foreign to you if you are the average American. Any tumors you have are likely to have their growth slowed or stopped for a while. If you have anxiety, you probably wont for a while. If you have epilepsy, you might be seizure free for a while. On the other hand, you could get all of these same benefits from <50mg. It would be rather pointless to do and most likely would not even be a memorable experience in the least.
That being said, no one can really tell you how YOU will react to anything, so it is always best to start out much slower when trying new things.
Edited to add:
If you are taking a drug that tells you that you cannot have grapefruit, CBD may work similarly to grapefruit and affect how that drug works, so you should ask your doctor.
Any CBD product that is meant to be swallowed will take anywhere from 30–120 minutes to enter your system. It is very unpredictable, depending to a large extent on the contents of your stomach.
Consider instead a chewable tablet that is meant to dissolve in your mouth. The CBD will enter your bloodstream directly, and you can expect to feel it 5–20 minutes later. It is much easier to find your optimal dose when you have faster feedback on how you are feeling.
My company makes CBD mints that are chewable, taste great, are convenient and fast-acting.
