The psychoactive element of cannabis, THC, is only present in trace amounts, or not at all, in CBD Oil, depending on the batch. Information on THC content can be found on the Certificate of Analysis that must be provided by each manufacturer.
Cannabidiol mimics the shape of naturally occurring macromolecules in the human body, called endocannabinoids. For that reason, the human body also has receptors for these compounds (CB1 and CB2) that then signal a cascade of several pathways causing the proposed benefits of CBD.
If you are concerned about testing positive - or want a lower risk of a positive test result - you may want to consider our Isolate CBD products since they have 0% THC in them. But Isolates may not be as effective as a Full Spectrum CBD oil (contains <0.3% THC). The Full Spectrum CBD Oil includes other cannabinoids that have been reported to increase potency.
Also be advised that some drug tests these days are now looking for the presence of CBD and other cannabinoids in addition to THC. For that reason, with any CBD product, a positive drug test result cannot be ruled out. If routine testing is required by your employer, best practice is to discuss with them your use of these products.
When starting any new supplement, OTC, or other product (like CBD Oil), always discuss with your healthcare provider. Certain medications, like anticoagulants (ex. warfarin) and anti-epileptic drugs have a wide variety of drug-drug interactions due to their metabolism. These medications and others may have metabolic interactions with CBD that either preclude their use, or require extra monitoring. More information on if CBD is safe for you can be provided by your doctor, or local pharmacist.
"Start low, titrate slow" If you haven't tried CBD before, start low and increase the dose slowly. This helps you learn how the hemp oil interacts with your body, and will help you find the dose most effective for you. A general rule of thumb is increasing the dose on a weekly basis until you are satisfied with results.
