No. Medical cards are related to marijuana. As we have established CBD Hemp-Derived products are not marijuana and therefore is legal in all 50 States.
The quick answer to this is NO. Drug tests are designed to check for psychoactive activity. Only THC meets these requirements so this is what is tested for. Some CBD products will contain minimal amounts of THC (the legal amount is less than 0.3%) but most labs cannot even test this low. Let alone your general drug test that uses urine instead of bloodwork. Not to mention even then what is there is diluted throughout the body making it even harder to test for.
Industrial Hemp and Marijuana are the same in the same way a Chihuahua and great Dane are the same. Both are dogs but different breeds. Though both items are Cannabis Sativa L., Industrial Hemp is the non-psychoactive, low or zero THC, oil seed and fiber varieties of the Cannabis sativa plant. Hemp is not used as a recreational drug.
A cannabinoid refers to one of a number of chemicals found in the hemp. While THC is the most known cannabinoid it is only found in Marijuana and not Industrial Hemp. Total known cannibinoids in Hemp is 143. Most significantly known in hemp is CBD and CBG both utilized to help with many general medical ailments. These cannabinoids interact with different receptors through the Endocannabinoid System to produce a wide range of effects.
Cannabinoids and Terpenes are both molecules found in the Hemp plant that have many medical benefits. While the cannabinoids are typically known for carrying the medical benefits on the body that this plant has to offer while the Terpenes get credit for the Color, Aroma, and taste characteristics that the plant carries. As a whole this is true but different terpenes do have their own medical benefits making them the exception to the rule. As a whole, terpenes are there to create the “Entourage-effect.” This effect is that the activity level of the cannabinoid is increased due to the presence of another molecule or the terpene.
As Hemp products become more and more popular both for humans and pets It becomes important to understand the difference between varying hemp products. Both provide significant health benefits but they are still distinct. Hemp seed oil is made by pressing hemp seeds together until the oil excretes out. Hemp seed oil is one of the leading sources of essential amino acids and fatty acids providing the most ideal balance for the human body then any other source. Since only seeds are being used the oil contains no CBD and is lacking in many other cannabinoids available in different parts of the plant. Full Spectrum Hemp is typically extracted from the stalk, flowers, or leaves of the hemp plant. As a result, the extract contains a full spectrum of the cannabinoids and Terpenes available in the hemp plant. The one exception is typically the THC as that would make it marijuana and not industrial hemp. CBD is the cannabinoid in highest quantity of this product and the most researched and well-known as a result.
CBD is a cannabinoid that comes from the hemp plant. CBD isolate or cannabidiol isolate is the cannabinoid that has been extracted to be put into other products but it was extracted alone. Full Spectrum contains the full spectrum of cannabinoids without the THC so that it meets the marker of legal AND containing all cannabinoids that will contain medical benefits. While we understand that CBD contains a very wide spectrum of health benefits it is not an ideal product as it is more expensive, more processed, and lacking in a few areas.
There are different benefits to each. Full Spectrum Hemp contains the full spectrum of 140+ cannabinoids and full spectrum of terpenes. Something to keep in mind is this can contain trace amounts of THC. This allows the body to receive the medical/health benefits that come from each of the cannabinoids and the terpenes are available to help support the cannabinoids. The benefit to CBD isolate is that there is NO THC. This is most beneficial to people who may be drug tested and have consequences if they test positive for traces of THC, i.e. pregnant women, people drug tested at work, etc. The down side is that while there is a significant amount of medical/health benefits in the isolate it does not provide all the benefits that CBD is known for.
It is always recommended to start with a minimal dose and slowly increase. For some people this may mean as little as 1-3 drops, 2-3 times a day. Typically, you will want to slowly increase until you find your comfortable dosage. This process is called micro-dosing.
Not really. Industrial Hemp is hemp and not marijuana because the THC is below 0.3%. This is the general definition. Once the oil has been extracted and diluted into a mixture typically used for general oral or topical use the THC is so low most labs do not have the technology to test for it and there is nowhere near enough to create the psychoactive reaction that marijuana is known for.
