Unfortunately we cannot guarantee that you would pass a drug test while taking CBD products. Most drug tests are testing for THC and its metabolites only. However, there are drug tests in use that are sensitive enough to detect any and all cannabinoids, including CBD. Many corporations, the U.S. military, and American state and federal governments typically use these more stringent tests – in addition to pain clinics. We encourage consumers to be mindful of their employer’s or clinic’s drug testing policies if they have concerns about using any cannabis product.
And now, onto the thorny issue of legality. The simple answer to the question is yes — if it is extracted from hemp. The 2014 Farm Bill established guidelines for growing hemp in the U.S. legally. This so-called “industrial hemp” refers to both hemp and hemp products which come from cannabis plants with less than 0.3 percent THC and are grown by a state-licensed farmer.
We often watch movies where people smoke “weed”; thus causing them to become “high” and experience various psychoactive effects. These psychoactive effects are frowned upon since they can cause a significant amount of problems in a person’s life. Imagine having to go to work while experiencing such a “high” – a person would not be able to conduct their work in a professional manner; thus causing them to suffer from poor productivity levels and possibly putting their career in danger.
Although I’m no physician, and am not qualified to recommend any drugs for any specific medical purposes, and you should consult your doctor when considering the consumption of anything that may be medicinal: If you’re looking to experiment with CBD products, you might consider looking for CBD products that are “whole plant” extract based from very high CBD cultivars. If you’re in a State that has a legal Cannabis system, you may also find more therapeutic benefits from non-hemp derived CBD products.
Take care not to apply CBD oil before bathing, or taking part in an activity that will make you sweat. Water will only wash away the oil from your skin before it has time to absorb and get to work. Excessive sweat can also prevent the oil from penetrating the skin. Instead, apply the topical, such as a CBD lotion for pain, after bathing and drying your skin.
