Can CBD make me high?
CBD does not have any of the psychoactive properties (like THC) associated with marijuana and will not impair the user or give them the “high” effect. Industrial hemp that has less than 0.3% THC content can yield high-quality CBD that is 99% pure.

|Parkinson’s disease||Attenuation of the dopaminergic impairment in vivo; neuroprotection; improvement of psychiatric rating and reduction of agitation, nightmare and aggressive behavior in patients. Multiple|
|Multiple sclerosis||Improved signs of EAE in mice, ant inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties|
|Huntington’s disease||Neuroprotective and antioxidant in mice transgenic models; no significant clinically important differences in patients.|
|Hypoxia-ischemia injury||Short term neuroprotective effects; inhibition of excitotoxicity, oxidative stress and inflammation in vitro and in rodent models.|
