What is CBD oil?
CBD oil is an oil you can ingest for its pain relieving and wellness properties. As its name would suggest, CBD oil contains a compound known as CBD. CBD stands for cannabidiol, which is a phytocannabinoid found in hemp. Hemp is one of the varieties of the cannabis plant..
So, is CBD oil the same thing as a marijuana oil?
No! While hemp and marijuana are both varieties of the same type of plant, it’s their compounds that make them unique. Both plants have CBD compounds, which cause calming, pain-relieving effects. Hemp plants contain low, low traces of THC — the compound found in marijuana plants that is known for creating a psychoactive effect. This is the key difference between the two plants!
But the label says CBD oil has some THC… will it make me high?
Nope. CBD oil can be sold across the United States because it comes from hemp plants that contain less than 0.3% of THC. This trace amount of THC is highly unlikely to produce any psychoactive effects.
Will taking CBD oil cause me to fail a drug test?
