Answers to Your Frequently Asked CBD, THC, & Hemp Questions

WHAT IS CBD?

CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis. While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. While CBD is a component of marijuana (one of hundreds), by itself, it does not cause a “high.” According to a report from the World Health Organization, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health-related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.”

What is hemp extract?

Hemp extract is an oil derived from the flower and plant material of the industrial hemp plant. This oil can be used for a variety of purposes, the most popular being consumption as a wellness supplement for cannabinoids, phytocannabinoids, Cannabidiol (CBD), and more.

Hemp is legally defined as containing less than 0.3% THC. 

CBD FAQs

Cannabinoids are a group of compounds produced by hemp along with other plants in the same family. This compound group impacts the body’s natural immune and nervous system.  Your body contains an endocannabinoid system that interacts with the cannabinoid compounds. This interaction supports healthy cell and immune system function. The endocannabinoid system supports numerous biological responses, including:

  • Energy and Balance
  • Immune Function
  • Memory
  • Metabolism
  • Sleep

This depends on many factors discussed in the dosing guidance and the type of CBD being consumed or administered. For most, sub-lingual (under the tongue) user effects are noticed within 30 minutes.

No. Hemp is legally defined as containing less than 0.3% THC. Workman’s Relief takes additional steps to remove THC and tests to confirm it is not detected in our CBD product. Take a look at our independent tests: https://workmansrelief.com/product-information/

Yes! In general, a few terms are widely used in the industry:

  • Hemp Oil/CBD Oil: These two terms are used interchangeably and refer to supplements containing CBD and other minor cannabinoids in a concentrated form. They are primarily derived from hemp flowers and leafy material.
  • Hemp Seed Oil: This is different from hemp oil and CBD oil because the oil comes from hemp seeds. In this case, very trace amounts of CBD and other cannabinoids are present compared to Hemp Oil and CBD Oil.

Workman’s Relief offers both broad-spectrum and Full-spectrum products. The difference between these 2 products is the amount of THC that is present. Full Spectrum products provide the full range of cannabinoids, including THC, up to 0.3% by weight. Broad Spectrum products offer the same full range, but the THC has been remediated from the product to <0.05%. While neither product is intended to get you ‘high,’ the Full Spectrum product allows for a complete entourage effect, making many customers happy with relief. 

Let’s start with the main point: CBD will not show up on drug tests. This is because drug tests are not designed to detect CBD, which is not classified as a Schedule 1 drug.  However, they do aim to identify marijuana, which contains THC.  Therefore, if a CBD product you’re using contains THC, it could lead to a failed drug test. 

CBD vs THC

At Workman’s Relief, we utilize broad-spectrum hemp extract that has non-detect levels of Delta 9 THC for a variety of reasons.

  1. to enable our customers to benefit from the “entourage ”
  2. to maintain our USDA certification, which guarantees natural products (the production of isolate requires non-organic chemicals)
  3. to significantly reduce the probability that our products will result in failed drug tests

What does ‘non-detect’ mean?

When third parties test our Workman’s Relief products, they do not detect Delta 9 THC. However, this doesn’t mean our products contain zero percent Delta 9 THC. ‘Non-detect’ in this context means the tests are unable to identify Delta 9 THC at concentrations higher than the limit of quantification (LOQ). The LOQ is the minimum amount of Delta 9 THC concentration the tests can accurately identify. 

What amount of THC can I take daily and still pass a drug test?

Numerous studies indicate that consuming 0.39 milligrams or less of Delta 9 THC per day results in a low probability of urine tests detecting THC metabolites greater than the federally required testing limit of 15 ng/ml. 

For our dosing recommendations (Table 1), we conservatively assume that Workman’s Relief ingestible products have Delta 9 THC concentrations at exactly the LOQ.  However, the concentrations are likely significantly lower.
