CBD is being sold everywhere these days from drugstores to health food markets to retail brands like Urban Outfitters. So, what is CBD? Is it safe? Will I pass a drug test if I use it? In today’s blog, we thought we would address these common questions and provide you with answers about CBD so that you can make the decision if CBD is right for you (and check out our blog by this title, too).


What is CBD?

CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the ingredients of cannabis. While CBD is an essential component, it is derived directly from the hemp plant and is non-psychoactive. Research has shown that CBD has numerous health and wellness benefits.


Will I pass a drug test/will CBD get me fired?

The hemp extract that we use meets all Federal guidelines including the 2018 Agriculture Improvements Act and it is Federally legal.  As part of this qualification, our products are certified to contain less than 0.3% THC.  This means that it will not get you high or have any cerebral effects.  Since each employer may have different policies, you should check with your employer for confirmation that they are allowing their employees to use a federally legal natural extract from Hemp containing only CBD and no THC.


How is CBD different from marijuana?

Marijuana and CBD are derived from the cannabis Sativa plant. Marijuana has been cultivated to contain high levels of THC, where hemp is high in CBD, low in THC. CBD is a non-psychoactive and will not get you high.


Why are topical lotions the best way to use CBD versus other options?

Topical lotions are the best way to use CBD versus other delivery methods due to the following: 1.  Smoking and vaping deliver imprecise doses as well as present risks to the lungs.  2.  Edibles slowly deliver imprecise doses after the CBD is possibly compromised by stomach acids and the liver.  But, while topicals are the best and safest way to use CBD, not all topicals are the same.  HerbTech topical lotions provide precise dosing and phase change emulsion formulation  to penetrate the skin.


 What are the benefits of CBD?

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a critical phyto-cannabinoid and it is found in hemp.  Humans produce CBD n in small quantities and it has receptors throughout the body.  There is extensive published research, (including on the internet) showing that CBD has potential benefits..  These include results from some FDA sanctioned clinical trials. However, Herb Tech Pharma, makes no health claims concerning its products, nor has the FDA reviewed any of our statements.
