CBD (cannabidiol) is a cannabinoid. It is one of two dominant cannabinoids in both hemp and marijuana (the other dominant cannabinoid found in both hemp and marijuana is THC).
Full-spectrum CBD contains cannabinoids from the hemp plant, including trace amounts of THC (less than .3% which is the legal limit).
Broad-spectrum CBD contains every cannabinoid in the hemp plant except THC. There is 0% THC in broad-spectrum CBD products (trace amounts of THC may remain, but less than the typical .3% THC found in hemp-based CBD).
Isolates are CBD products that contain only CBD – everything else in the plant is taken out. There are over 100 cannabinoids known to exist in the hemp plant. Isolates are made by “isolating” the cannabinoid CBD from hemp.
The word tincture means “a solution of a medicinal substance in an alcoholic solvent.” That’s exactly what CBD (cannabidiol) is: a medicinal ingredient diluted in a specific material.
In the world of CBD, the word “tincture” and the word “oil” are used interchangeably. The terms “CBD tincture” and “CBD oil” both refer to the liquid substance found inside a bottle of CBD oil.
The benefits of CBD vary from person to person. Some studies show that it may ease the symptoms of pain and other ailments.
*As with most medical means, the potential benefits and effectiveness vary from person to person. There has not been enough research into the benefits of CBD for anyone to claim definitively whether or not CBD is directly associated with improved health conditions.
CBD is different from THC, the chemical in marijuana associated with the feeling of being “high”. CBD will not get you “high”, but it might make you feel more relaxed. Some research has shown it might even help you fall asleep.
No, CBD is not an addictive compound. Actually, it’s believed by some people that CBD plays a role in treating addictive behaviors
The probability of failing a drug test from using hemp-based CBD products is minuscule, but there have been a few rare cases reported. Of course, if someone using hemp-based CBD products is greatly exceeding the recommended dosage, then yes, their chances of failing a drug test will obviously increase.
Hemp-based CBD oil may also lead to false positives in test results. In such instances, do your research and find a way to express this to the entity testing you. Today’s drug tests are incredibly specialized, so if you have failed a drug test for taking a legal substance, like hemp-based CBD products, there should be a way for the entity testing you to verify that.
Though these chances are slim, we still advise those concerned about it to simply be aware. If you’re still wanting to play it extra safe, you will want to look for CBD products with 0% THC so you can feel more secure. We recommend trying a broad-spectrum CBD product or an isolate. We also recommend consulting your physician or health care provider before using any hemp products if you are subject to drug testing.
