Cannabidiol (CBD) seems to be available almost everywhere these days. It is sold online, in drugstores, supermarkets and even in many gas stations. It is also in a variety of different forms – from ingestible products to dietary supplements to cosmetics and even animal health products. But just because it is everywhere, does that really mean it is safe?

To understand if it is safe, let’s first explore ‘What is CBD’?  CBD is derived from the cannabis Sativa plant like marijuana.  Whereas marijuana is cultivated to contain high levels of THC, CBD hemp is low in THC (<0.3%) and non-psychoactive.  CBD hemp was legalized by the 2018 Farm Bill.  The bill made industrial hemp legal in all 50 states and removes hemp from the Controlled Substances Act allowing for commercial cultivation.

CBD products that meet the Federal guidelines are legal and do not contain enough THC to get high.  Many people want to understand if they will be able to pass a drug test and the answer is that it depends on the employer and what they are screening for.  Generally, if an employer is screening for illegal substances then CBD hemp would not fall into that category and a drug test would come back clear.

To be safe, it is important to do your research and only purchase CBD products from a trusted source.  A few of the key considerations in your CBD purchase includes:

  • Source of CBD hemp used in production
  • Quality control of products to ensure compliance with guidelines
  • Application of product – ingestible vs vaping vs topical
  • Company history and track record

We want to help you understand how On CBD products rank based on the considerations above.  On CBD products are lifestyle health and wellness products that follow all marketing and label requirements for a general consumer product.
