Frequently Asked Questions
Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, is a phytocannabinoid found in cannabis and/ or agricultural hemp. It is recognized for its benefits on human and animal health and is capable of affecting nearly every biological process via the endocannabinoid system.
Products that are manufactured from agricultural hemp, which contains less than 0.3% THC dry weight, are exempt from the Federal Controlled Substances Act, therefore are currently not unlawful for distribution. We are happy to provide a signed legal opinion to those who are interested in learning more.
Due to DSHEA guidelines, we are not allowed to certify conditions CBD may affect. We encourage you to do your own research, consult doctors, and utilize PubMed.gov as a resource for articles published in real-time. More research is being done to confirm structure/ function claims associated with CBD. We encourage you to talk to your doctor before starting any new nutritional or dietary supplement regimens.
No! Since there is no THC the molecule that gets you “High” in CBD oil! CBD is a phytocannabinoid that it is a non-psycho toxic and has a remarkable safety profile.
Agricultural hemp has tall, bamboo-like thick stock, thick stocks, very thin leaves, and little to no flowers. Defined as a cannabis plant containing less than 0.3% THC, hemp is grown mainly to make textiles, foods, and oils. Agricultural hemp used in CBD does not produce a “high” effect. Growing agricultural hemp has fewer restrictions than marijuana, which allows being grown in large scales outdoors.
Marijuana plants tend to be shorter plants and are grown for their flowers. The THC content is higher in these plants and is mainly used recreationally, however, some states have legislation in place to allow marijuana for medical use with a recommendation from a doctor. Because of the restrictions regarding marijuana, growing these plants can be extremely difficult and leave an enormous carbon footprint, depending on the growing practices.
No. CBD is CBD, it does not matter where it is sourced from. The human body does not recognize whether a CBD compound was sourced from agricultural hemp or medical cannabis flower – all of the body’s biologic activity, interaction with various enzymes, and receptors specific to CBD remain the same.
At Revive CBD Labs, we extract our CBD from Hemp Plants because they contain higher amounts of CBD than Marijuana Plants.
The short answer is no, CBD will not show up on a work-administered drug test. This is because generic drug tests don’t test for CBD, but actually for THC when measuring cannabis use. While some companies would commission a specialized CBD drug test from labs, it’s incredibly expensive and tedious to do so. This process is so bothersome that federal employees like the DEA aren’t even tested for CBD.
