Long back, even before the internet became accessible to common people, there was a rumor about bananas. Some people believed that smoking dried banana will give the same effect as marijuana. That is it, can make people feel high. This misconception was very common among the people and there are a lot of people who tried the same. Even today many people believe that dried banana has the ability to offer a psychoactive effect to the users. Is there any truth in the rumor? Let us see.
Relation Between Banana And Hemp CBD
Banana is a fruit and CBD is an element present in the cannabis plant. Actually, we cannot relate these two items in any manner because they are not members of the same family, not even the same kind of products. However, if we look deeper, we can find a small similarity between banana and CBD. Both these items are having a component called myrcene. This is the reason for people to relate these two items and the belief that CBD products and smoking dried bananas can offer a high.
What Is Myrcene?
Myrcene is a form of terpene present in the hemp plant. That is, it is an element present in the hemp plant that gives its natural aroma. The same element can also be seen in dried banana peels. If we are using full spectrum CBD or CBD buds, this element will get infused into our bodies. Since it is not having a pleasant fragrance, most of the users are not interested in using myrcene rich CBD products. Some manufacturers are also using additional flavoring agents to conceal the aroma of this element.
Will Myrcene Make People Feel High?
No, myrcene does not have the property to give a psychoactive effect to the users. It is only a type of terpene that gives a natural smell to CBD. People can get high by using CBD only if they are using products containing a high quantity of THC. Therefore, even if you are using a concentrated form of myrcene, it can never make you feel high.
From the above discussion, it is clear that CBD does not have the capacity to make people feel high. It was proved earlier that dried banana cannot make people high. But even today, many people are connecting these two items and claiming that they can make people feel high.
