Can CBD Cream Make You Feel Weird?

Key Takeaways

  • When applying CBD cream, some of the cannabinoids make their way into the bloodstream.
  • CBD and most cannabinoids found in high-quality CBD creams are not likely to make you feel weird.
  • Even if CBD cream contains THC, its concentrations are too low to make you feel weird.

There are an endless number of CBD products, and it makes sense, considering that CBD may relieve many health conditions. Moreover, topical CBD use is increasing, as CBD cream is among the safest ways of using CBD. It may help counter acne, help with eczema, provide relief from muscle aches, and may have many other benefits.

However, the increasing popularity of CBD creams also means a growing number of questions and misconceptions.

I can say with confidence that legally sold CBD cream is not likely to make you feel weird. It does not use THC or in very small amounts. Moreover, very little THC might be absorbed via the skin into the system. So, let’s explore this topic in more detail.

Understanding CBD Cream

CBD cream is a topical formulation infused with cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive compound derived from the cannabis plant. Unlike oral consumption methods such as oils or capsules, CBD cream is applied directly to the skin, allowing for localized relief of discomfort and inflammation. Its therapeutic potential lies in interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which regulates various physiological processes, including pain perception and immune response.

Amidst the plethora of anecdotal accounts and marketing claims surrounding CBD, misconceptions often arise regarding its effects on mood and cognition. One common concern is whether CBD cream can make individuals feel “weird” or intoxicated, akin to the psychoactive effects of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), another compound found in cannabis.

Why Does CBD Oil Make Me Feel Weird?

The sensation of feeling “weird” after using CBD oil may stem from various factors, including individual differences in metabolism, dosage, and product quality. While CBD itself is non-intoxicating and does not produce euphoric effects, some users may perceive subtle changes in mood or alertness, particularly when consuming high doses or products with impurities. In many cases, it may even be psychological or due to the placebo effect caused by excessive fear or misinformation about CBD.

Does CBD Make You Drunk?

Some people ask, does CBD make you drunk? Well, contrary to popular misconceptions, CBD does not induce intoxication or impairment akin to alcohol consumption.

Unlike alcohol, which affects neurotransmitter activity and cognitive function, CBD interacts with different receptors in the brain and body, exerting a modulating influence on various physiological processes without eliciting intoxicating effects.

Of course, it may enhance certain effects of alcohol intake. Therefore, some people who drink alcohol casually may feel more drunk when using CBD cream. This may occur in rare cases and only if one uses a lot of creams, as only in such instances may any significant CBD quantity enter the bloodstream.

How Does CBD Make You Feel?

The subjective experience of using CBD varies from person to person and is influenced by factors such as dosage, mode of administration, and individual physiology. While some individuals report feelings of relaxation, stress relief, or improved focus, others may not perceive any noticeable effects. It’s important to recognise that CBD’s effects are subtle and nuanced, often manifesting as a sense of balance and well-being rather than overt intoxication or alteration of consciousness.

For those considering incorporating CBD cream into their wellness routine, it’s essential to approach its use with informed decision-making and realistic expectations. Start with a low dosage and gradually increase as needed, paying attention to how your body responds. Opt for high-quality CBD products from reputable manufacturers that undergo third-party testing for potency and purity.

The Bottom Line

CBD cream would not make you weird. However, some people may feel altered sensations due to other reasons. Full spectrum CBD oil and CBD vape pens might cause some altered sensation, and that too on overdosing. However, such issues are least likely to occur due to CBD cream.

However, if you experience some intoxication due to CBD cream, it would be better to change the brand or buy high-quality products. Some low-quality products might contain excessive amounts of THC.
