Does CBD oil have THC?
It’s like asking if the cake has chocolate! Some do and some don’t and it all depends on the manufacturer. Here we try to answer that question in layman terms.
The hemp plant contains approximately 114 phyto cannabinoids which make the plant complete. Because of technology today we can extract and separate those cannabinoids and explore them separately.
What is the Difference Between THC and CBD?
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) are the two primary cannabinoids that occur naturally in the hemp plant. Both of these cannabinoids interact with the cannabinoid receptors in the human body and brain, but they differ dramatically in their effects.
CBD is non-psychoactive which means that it will not get you high. THC is the cannabinoid responsible for creating the ‘high’.
Hemp has high contents of CBD and low contents of THC
Marijuana (Cannabis) is opposite – high on THC and low on CBD.
Does CBD oil contain THC?
Full-Spectrum CBD products
Full-spectrum CBD products are full of all the terpenes, cannabinoids, flavonoids, and fatty acids found in hemp, all of which have a therapeutic value of their own. Europe has allowed THC contents of 0.2% in CBD products. We at The Real CBD believe, that THC has a very important role in a full-spectrum product. All the cannabinoids (CBD,THC,CBG,CBC,CBN etc.) work together to offer the best benefits of the end product. It is called the Entourage effect. THC has many good things to offer also in very small amounts.
Some of the benefits are:
- Pain relief
- Eases nausea and vomiting
- Protects the brain cells
- Effective sleep aid
- Helps treat PTSD
- Anti-tumor agent
Broad Spectrum CBD products
Broad-spectrum CBD is full-spectrum CBD without any THC. Many producers prefer to completely take all THC out of their oils, mostly because of the law where they either produce or where they sell to.
CBD Isolate Products
Some producers use CBD isolates which is a CBD ONLY product. All other cannabinoids have been taken out, to make the marketing and sales of these products easier and legal across borders. CBD isolate is 99.8% pure CBD. During the CBD isolate extraction process, everything contained in the plant matter is removed. This includes any traces of THC, terpenes, waxes, oils, chlorophyll and more. What you’re left with is pure CBD…and nothing else.
Phytocannabinoid rich products (PCR)
PCR stands for phytocannabinoid rich. In this case, using alcohol distillation and the most dominant phytocannabinoids (THC and CBD) and terpenes are separated. This process allows producing extractions that are 0.0% THC and to preserve a partial set of terpenes from the original plant.
Why would no THC be a good option?
There are several reasons as to why a company may choose to implement a drug and alcohol testing policy for its employees. Different companies will test for different drugs, but the most common package is a urine test for cannabis, cocaine, amphetamine, methamphetamine, benzodiazepine, and opiates. Unlike alcohol testing, what drug testing will not tell you is whether a person is either under the influence of a drug or what the level of impairment is. It will simply tell you whether the metabolites of a drug are present.
THC metabolites can build up in our fatty tissue and a drug test will show positive. Here is where the THC free products come into play. A very good option for people subjected to drug tests on their workplace or sports club.
