CBD, short-hand for cannabidiol, is an amazing compound found in cannabis, however the vast majority of cannabidiol is extracted from hemp. Hemp is a commonly used term for strains of the cannabis sativa plant with very low levels of THC. Hemp has a long history of use in various products all over the world.
Our CBD is produced from Non-GMO hemp. Each batch is third-
party lab tested and guaranteed to be free of contaminants.
Both hemp and marijuana are forms of cannabis. Unlike the “marijuana” cannabis plant which is high in THC and low in CBD, the hemp cannabis plant have a high amount of CBD and low THC thus making them the most ideal, effective and efficient source for CBD. The United States government classifies hemp as any plant of the cannabis species that contains less than 0.3% THC and therefore classifies marijuana as any plant that contains greater than 0.3% THC. Just to be clear, THC is the psychoactive component that produces the “high” that it’s gained notoriety for.
Now, the hemp-derived CBD that is sourced from marijuana plants still remains subject to individual state laws, but when CBD is sourced from industrial-hemp plants, it can be *purchased and consumed in all 50 states as long as it is grown in accordance with the Farm Bill of 2018.
The 2018 Farm Bill clears up some of the confusion as to the legality of hemp and CBD, insomuch as in redefining hemp to include its “extracts, cannabinoids and derivatives,” the government has removed popular hemp products, such as hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) from the oversight of agencies like the Drug Enforcement Administration.
This means that CBD’s legal status on a federal level is quite clear, however, on a state level there’s some variation which will continue to evolve as fast as a snowball rolling down a hill, so please continue to check back here or with local authorities for updates to the bill and state / federal laws.
*The legal landscape around CBD is rapidly evolving from both State and Federal levels. Any information provided by or on our website including but not limited to any other communications relative to legality which you may receive from PureShaka or any related entities is presented for informational and/or educational purposes and not for the purposes of providing or guiding legal advice. It is the responsibility of the consumer to use ones’ best judgment or rely on legal statutes regarding CBD in any given jurisdiction as each state has the right to create its own laws and restrictions. Some states continue to view CBD that comes from marijuana as being no different than marijuana itself. If you are unaware, it is our suggestion that you, the consumer, seek legal counsel and/or contact your local authorities for more specific guidance. See https://www.mpp.org/states/
In short the answer is “NO” CBD is basically non-psychoactive. It does not have the same mood-altering effects to the extent of THC and is safe at high doses.
CBD does not cause the feeling of being ‘high’ that is often associated with cannabis. The high is caused by THC. THC binds tightly to the CB1 and CB2 nerve receptors in the brain and throughout the body. CBD does not bind to these receptors and instead causes its therapeutic actions through more indirect means.
Because CBD will not make you feel intoxicated, it is a great option for parents, workers, and anyone else who does not to compromise their mental clarity.
Many health conditions, both severe and not, are treated with pharmaceutical drugs. Unfortunately, many of these drugs have unpleasant or dangerous side effects. In some instances, CBD may offer non-toxic, virtually side-effect free, natural benefits for individuals who want to avoid or reduce the number of pharmaceuticals they are taking.
Generally, a urine screening is performed to identify the presence of marijuana via antibodies that interact with and detect THC among other psychoactive drugs. These test are not designed to detect the presence of CBD alone, which means that for CBD oil users, at least those who are using certified products containing less than .3% THC, as regulations presently require, then a drug test should not raise any red flags.
Now you’ve heard there are no guarantees in life and ignorance may be bliss, but the accurate and current reporting by the distributor and/or manufacturer coupled with the responsible use by the consumer still matters.
So, if drug testing is a part of your present life or could present itself in the future, it may be in your best interest to use a CBD oil and/or product that contains zero THC (or a non detectable amount which is less than the legal limit of .3%). At PureShaka, we present our USA manufactured products and up to date lab reports with Isolate and/or Distillate with zero-N/D levels of THC.
CBD has been shown in various studies to have a multitude of health benefits, and while the Food and Drug Administration does not currently recognize cannabinoid products as health products, there are many customers and CBD users reporting phenomenal results. There is no shortage of published articles and studies online.
CBD oil continues to be studied for its potential role in treating many common health & wellness issues. It is possible that CBD may provide a natural alternative to pain & symptom relief.
CBD isolate is a powder containing 99% PURE cannabidiol, offering CBD in its most concentrated form.
Full Spectrum is a term used to describe CBD oil that NOT only contains CBD, but also contains some terpenes and other cannabinoids such as CBG, CBN, and sometimes a trace amount of THC which is under the legal limit allowed.
