Maybe you came to this article because you want to try CBD, but completely avoid any potentially adverse or intoxicating effects of THC. If this is the case, try a full-spectrum hemp, broad-spectrum CBD, or CBD isolate product.

If you’re open to trying cannabis products that are high in CBD and low in THC, you may be interested to know that CBD has the potential to mitigate the intoxicating and potentially adverse effects of THC, while THC may contribute to or enhance the therapeutic effects of CBD. THC and CBD elicit responses from the human body by binding to cannabinoid receptors.

First, CBD can be derived from hemp or from cannabis. If it’s from hemp, there can’t be any more than 0.3% THC in it, by law. That’s the CBD that you should be able to purchase in just about any US state because hemp is legal across the land. (Sorry, Idahoans, this doesn’t apply to you.) CBD that’s been extracted from marijuana, on the other hand, could have any amount of THC in it and is only available in states where medical and/or recreational cannabis is legal. In medical states, you’ll need to be a registered patient to participate.

Is CBD effective without THC?

While CBD isolate might in some ways function as a more potent or concentrated form of CBD, it may be less effective since isolate does not metabolize in your body alongside the other potentially important cannabinoids and terpenes. While some prefer the peace of mind of knowing there’s nothing but CBD in their oil, gummies, or tincture, there’s scientific evidence that consuming full-spectrum products, with all the goodies from the plant, delivers better results via the entourage effect.

In the earlier days of CBD product manufacturing, full-spectrum products were likely to contain higher levels of THC than 0.3%. But as the industry has matured, it’s now possible to find full-spectrum hemp products with all of the cannabinoids and terpenes found in hemp but no more than 0.3% THC. Just be sure the label says full-spectrum hemp, not marijuana.

So for these consumers, the question inevitably arises: Do CBD products contain THC?

Both CBD and THC are known to interact with the endocannabinoid system, or ECS, a network of cannabinoid receptors in the human body. The cannabinoid receptors in this system interact with these compounds to relay messages between cells to bring the systems of the body into balance, according to preliminary research. This may result in higher quality sleep cycles, an enhanced feeling of well-being, and an improvement on day-to-day aches and pains, according to anecdotal reports. 7

The answer: Federally legal full spectrum CBD oil does in fact contain trace amounts of THC. 1

Can you get high with CBD?

Full-spectrum CBD oils that are made legally with less than 0.3% THC do not have nearly enough THC content to get someone high. THC is the psychoactive compound of the cannabis plant that provides a euphoric sensation, but studies show that CBD actually helps to counteract the psychoactive effects of THC.

Delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) 2 is an intoxicating compound that causes the euphoric effect commonly associated with marijuana intoxication. It can cause mild hallucinations, and it can distort space and time. 3 It’s been the fuel of the American counter-culture since before Woodstock.

Third-party lab test results are available via scannable QR code leading to each CBD product’s certificate of authenticity. The Kentucky laboratory they partner with does a thorough job of testing Cornbread Hemp CBD products for the presence of pesticides, residual solvents, mycotoxins, heavy metals, and microbial contaminants. Lab test results also prove each product’s potency, both for THC content and CBD content. All of Cornbread Hemp’s products are full spectrum and guaranteed to less than 0.3 percent THC.

Cornbread Hemp works with suppliers who guarantee a less than or equal to 0.3% THC content. With the trace amounts of THC in CBD full spectrum oil, it is possible that users may fail a drug test. Cornbread Hemp does not take any responsibility in the instance a customer fails a drug test while using these products.
