Cannabidiol oil is an item that is derived from industrial hemp. So, it is natural for people to have certain misconceptions about it and pure hemp oil. Here, we will look at some of these myths.
Both Products Cause A High
Marijuana users often describe the intoxicated feeling as ‘high’. Unlike marijuana, hemp and the derivative of it do not have this particular effect because both have up to 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol. For your information, tetrahydrocannabinol is a non-endogenous cannabinoid that could affect the user’s mind if they ingest more amounts of it. Products like CBD oil are not supposed to contain over 0.3% THC, so the effect cannot happen even if you consume it in high doses. Hemp oil also lacks the effect.
Both Are One And The Same
People think that the terms ‘cannabidiol oil’, ‘hemp oil’ and even ‘cannabis oil’ refer to the same product. However, this is not the case. Pure CBD oil only contains cannabidiol as a phytocannabinoid. Aside from the cannabinoid, it may also contain a carrier oil, such as coconut oil to name one. Cannabidiol oil is usually made with industrial hemp, but companies can also use marijuana and cannabis to produce it.
What leaves consumers confused about this matter is that vendors tend to use the three aforementioned phrases interchangeably. CBD product vendors do so as part of their search engine optimization efforts.
Tetrahydrocannabinol Will Always Appear In Drug Test Output
Usually, between 1% and 3% tetrahydrocannabinol ingested in the form of a supplement gradually during a long period, would possibly cause a positive substance test result. In other words, your substance screening procedure done to check THC’s presence in your urine or blood would possibly turn out to be positive due to that. Then again, it is worth noting that this is just a possibility. Therefore, to say that it will invariably happen is to spread a misconception. As stated earlier, both oil-type products only contain up to 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol, so you should not have a positive result.
The Products Are Hazardous
You cannot overdose on both products because the endocannabinoid system (ECS) creates endogenous cannabinoids. For your information, the ECS is responsible for maintaining a state of bodily balance, known as ‘homeostasis’, as a response to environmental changes. Research indicates that cannabidiol does not have traces of toxicity even if it is ingested in high dosages.
