Disproving Some Common Myths About CBD

Diamond Hemp

The cannabis industry was given a big boost with the 2018 Farm Bill that made industrial hemp legal to grow in the United States. With that right to grow industrial hemp came some restrictions & regulations, but one of the biggest obstacles for the CBD industry right now is disproving some common myths about CBD, and educating the public on the difference between marijuana and industrial hemp.

As we often times repeat ourselves in blog posts, the major difference between hemp & marijuana, is the THC content level. Hemp generally only has about 0.3% or less THC content, while marijuana contains anywhere between 20%-30% THC. Both plants contain CBD, however marijuana is illegal to grow in most states. So CBD oil in states where recreational marijuana is not yet legal, chances are you have the hemp form of CBD.

Having such a close relationship to marijuana, industrial hemp sometimes gets a bad stereotype as a plant that gets you high. That is just not true. The low levels of THC in CBD oil from hemp can not get a user high, and must be tested by state regulators prior to distribution in most states. All hemp-derived CBD oil should contain less that 0.3% THC.

This THC distinction can also lead to some false myths being spread about the effectiveness of CBD oil from hemp plants, versus CBD oil from marijuana plants. Then the myth that you need the high levels of THC to activate the THC. Both of these myths are simply not true. CBD oil is CBD oil.

Don’t think you can get away with passing a drug test with CBD oil that has 0.3% THC. If your a daily user of CBD oil, you may test positive for marijuana on the drug test. Any trace amounts are detected by most testing strips, so stick to 0.0% THC if your worried about drug testing, and definitely make sure to test yourself with a home testing kit to make sure. Some employers may work with you, but then again, with all these myths out there about CBD oil, they may not.

Last but not least is the myth that CBD products are illegal because they contain THC. As far as federal law is concerned, any hemp grown with less than 0.3% THC levels is considered hemp. Farmers do have to go through commissions and testing for THC levels, but CBD oil is 100% legal in the United States.

Here is a great YouTube video from the Ministry of Hemp on YouTube that can break down the most common myths about CBD better than I can.
