Many People Ask Is CBD Addictive?
Before we answer is CBD additive first, let’s look at the definition of addiction.
The definition of addiction: the fact or condition of being addicted to a particular substance, thing, or activity. Physically and mentally dependent on a particular substance, and unable to stop taking it without incurring adverse effects.

Cannabidiol is a phytocannabinoid discovered in 1940. It is one of 113 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants and accounts for up to 40% of the plant’s extract.
What is cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds found in the Cannabis sativa plant. Of over 480 different compounds present in the plant, only around 66 are termed cannabinoids. The most well known among these compounds is the delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC), which is the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis.
Is CBD a cannabinoid?
Cannabidiol is a popular natural remedy used for many common ailments. Better known as CBD, it is one of over 100 chemical compounds known as cannabinoids found in the cannabis or marijuana plant, Cannabis sativa plant. However, unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive.
Can you get addicted to CBD?
CBD is a non-addictive chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. The body cannot build a high tolerance to CBD, and it is also a non-intoxicating substance. The substance in the cannabis or marijuana plant that has addictive properties is THC, and CBD oils do not contain enough THC to get someone high or cause someone to be addicted to CBD.
Does CBD get you high?
CBD is non-intoxicating, so you can’t get high from CBD unless the product contains high concentration of THC.
What is the difference between Broad Spectrum CBD oil and Full Spectrum CBD oil?
Full-spectrum CBD includes many of the cannabinoids and compounds of the cannabis plant, including up to 0.3% THC. Broad-spectrum CBD contains all the same compounds as full-spectrum CBD, minus THC.
How does the 2018 Farm Bill define hemp? What does it mean for FDA-regulated products?
At the federal level, the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, Pub. L. 115-334, (the 2018 Farm Bill) was signed into law on Dec. 20, 2018. Among other things, this new law changes certain federal authorities relating to the production and marketing of hemp, defined as “the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.” These changes include removing hemp from the CSA, which means that cannabis plants and derivatives that contain no more than 0.3 percent THC on a dry weight basis are no longer controlled substances under federal law.
Trace amounts of THC can be found in most full spectrum hemp-derived CBD products at Duke’s Naturals. Our products meet the federally required THC concentration limit of less than 0.3 percent by dry weight.
At Duke’s Naturals we do 3rd Party Lab testing on every batch. Always check if a company performs extensive lab testing on its CBD oil to make sure only high purity and high concentration end up in your hands or else you won’t know how much actual CBD you are consuming per dosage.
To answer the question is CBD addictive? At the molecular level, CBD is neither addictive, nor does it produce the so-called stoned effect that THC does. CBD works to promote balance and wellness.
