Non-psychoactive

Commonly confused with "non-intoxicating." Often used in conjunction with CBD, a cannabinoid known to produce more pain-relieving effects than a discernible head high, "non-psychoactive" has come to signify the absence of psychological effects. However, this term becomes a bit of a misnomer when it fails to acknowledge the success people have had using CBD for depression and anxiety. So the next time you see "non-psychoactive" on a product's packaging, know it more accurately means "non-intoxicating."
