“CBD” is an abbreviation for cannabidiol, a non-psychotropic chemical compound found in the hemp plant. CBD is also found in marijuana, which is a cousin of the hemp plant. At Purely CBD, we only use CBD that is derived from the hemp plant—not marijuana. Our Broad Spectrum CBD products do not contain tetrahydrocannabidiol (THC), the psychotropic ingredient in marijuana that causes a euphoric “high.” Our Full Spectrum CBD products contain 0.3% THC or less, in compliance with FDA requirements.
No. CBD does not have psychoactive properties, and does not cause a “high.”
Purely CBD Broad-Spectrum products are tested in third-party labs and guaranteed THC-free. Our Full-Spectrum products are also third-party lab tested, and contain 0.3% THC or less, in compliance with FDA regulations.
Purely CBD Broad-Spectrum products will not cause you to fail a drug test for THC, because we remove all traces of THC from our products and test them for THC content in third-party labs. Our Full-Spectrum CBD products contain 0.3% THC or less, which meets FDA requirements. It is possible that some drug tests may detect the presence of cannabidiol (CBD).
While marijuana does contain CBD, we do not use marijuana to make the CBD products sold at Purely CBD. All of our CBD products are made from hemp.
Only one prescription CBD oil product, called Epidiolex, has received FDA approval. Used to treat epilepsy, it is considered effective at reducing seizures. However, since CBD was only recently legalized, not enough research has been completed to determine all of its benefits. Currently, studies are testing CBD effects, including CBD oil for pain. However, these benefits have not been proven, and the FDA has not approved the use of CBD to treat these conditions.
With the passage of the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (the “2018 Farm Bill”), signed December 20, 2018, hemp was officially legalized in the U.S., and its designation as a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Schedule I controlled substance was removed. CBD products can be legally sold in the U.S., but they must contain less than 0.3 percent concentrations of THC. At Purely CBD, our legal CBD is made from hemp, and meets FDA requirements for THC concentrations.
More research is needed to determine if CBD is safe. Nausea, fatigue and irritability have been reported as possible side effects. CBD can also increase the level of the blood thinner coumadin, and certain other medications—an effect that also occurs with grapefruit juice.
