There are many benefits to using CBD, but you might be wondering how does CBD oil make you feel?

Let’s get the elephant out of the room. Firstly, it is not going to make you feel high. You won’t feel any adverse change in your consciousness, you won’t feel any psychoactive difference, or you won’t lose your sense of awareness like you might if you were to drink a couple of glasses of red wine. You will feel normal, the same as on a good day.


Does CBD oil make you feel different? 

Whilst there is no immediate change in your conscious awareness, CBD should make you feel different. You should feel more in tune with what is happening in your life. When you use CBD oil, you should start to feel the following;


More focussed

CBD oil should help you to feel more focused on a task. Research from the Innovare Journal of Medical Sciences has shown that CBD can positively affect stress. If you are less stressed, you should notice your focus improving when performing work-based tasks requiring concentration. Having better focus should lead to increased productivity when you are at work.



Less anxious

As CBD can positively affect stress, it’s natural you will feel a reduction in your anxiety levels. You should notice your mind is calmer, particularly if you are someone whose mind is always racing. Also, your reactions may be different in situations that typically make you feel anxious. For example, you might find that you have a sense of calm and control that you did not previously experience in the same situation.



The chemical that provides the feel-good factor within your body is called Serotonin. Whilst CBD won’t increase the levels of Serotonin in your body; it does affect how your body responds to it, making it seem like there is more Serotonin in your body than there actually is. For example, suppose you were to see a Doctor because you had low Serotonin and a low mood. In that case, your Doctor might prescribe you a common anti-depressive drug known as a ‘Selective Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibitor’ (SSRI), which typically takes around 14 days before you feel any noticeable effect. However, concerning lifting mood, CBD’s effects are known to be fast and sustained. As a result, when you take CBD oil, you should quickly feel happier and feel better about life.



When using CBD products, you should start feeling more energised. This is because CBD works with your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). Amongst other things, your endocannabinoid system plays a role in your mood, metabolism, sleep, memory and learning, and the sensation of pain and inflammation in your body. By using CBD and CBG, you can tap into your body’s metabolic effects to help enhance the energy your body gets from the food you eat. To benefit most from this, you must keep your diet balanced and rich in nutrients.


Less pain

If you suffer from inflammatory pain (either acute or chronic), you should feel an improvement in the pain by using CBD products. This is because CBD may help reduce inflammation by inhibiting the production of inflammatory chemicals in the body and decreasing the activity of immune cells that contribute to inflammation.




Inflammation plays a role in the feeling of pain in many conditions, such as;


  • Coronary Artery Disease
  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes
  • Depression
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease


You should feel less pain when you take CBD products, as CBD has been found to reduce inflammation.
