Many cannabis users are wondering whether CBD can neutralize the side effects of consuming of too much THC (such as anxiety or paranoia). The answer is yes, it can, but there are still some factors that may influence your body’s response to CBD.
First of all, the sensitiveness to CBD depends on your unique genetics and biology. The second factor is the intensity and the nature of anxiety you have after taking THC. Among the external factors, there are the type of used CBD product and its amount.
However, the mechanism of interaction of THC and CBD is always the same. Cannabidiol, known as CBD, is a marijuana compound that has a great anxiety-fighting potential. CBD in small quantities is present in most weed varieties, but recent years have seen a surge of high-CBD products and strains. When CBD is isolated from THC, it does not cause euphoria (CBD has no psychoactive properties).
Although CBD and THC are two completely different elements, they interact in many interesting ways. For instance, CBD can improve THC's properties of pain relief while diminishing the paranoia it can cause. In other words, in the process of interaction with THC, CBD can reduce some effects (the high, sleepiness, the munchies) while augmenting others.

You still need to notify your doctor if you decide to use CBD, especially if you are going to use it along with other medications.
