Will I Pass My Drug Test At Work If I Use CBD?

While it is highly unlikely that you will test positive for THC

For anyone using a high-quality, scientifically vetted hemp-based product at the standard serving size is highly unlikely to test positive for THC and/or THC-COOH. However, it is important to be cognizant that extremely high doses of our full spectrum tinctures, in excess of 2,000 mg daily, may result in a positive urine screen.

Another option is using our 0 THC line of products. These have been extensively filtered and consistently test at 0.00% THC and it is highly improbable that anyone would test positive no matter the dosage taken.

Is CBD Safe For Athletes?

CBD is safe for athletes. In fact, the World Anti-Doping Agency and the United States Anti-Doping Agency have removed CBD from the list of banned substances. Because of CBD’s anti inflammatory properties, it is being used by athletes before and after training and events in order to aid with recovery.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol—CBD—is a cannabis compound that has significant medicinal benefits, but does not make people feel “******” and can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC. The fact that CBD-rich cannabis is non-psychoactive or less psychoactive than THC-dominant strains makes it an appealing option for patients looking for relief of a number of symptoms.

All products sold by Phoenix Tears Wellness are compliant with the Federal Farm Bill and either contain only trace amounts of THC, under .3%, or 0.00% THC.

What is the difference between CBD and THC?

Until recently, the most well-known compound in cannabis was delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This is the most active ingredient in marijuana.

Marijuana contains both THC and CBD, but the compounds have different effects.

THC is well-known for the mind-altering “high” it produces when broken down by heat and introduced into the body, such as when smoking the plant or cooking it into foods.

Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive. This means that it does not change the state of mind of the person who uses it. However, it does appear to produce significant changes in the body and has been found to have medical benefits.

Most of the CBD used medicinally is found in the least processed form of the cannabis plant, known as hemp.

Hemp and marijuana come from the same plant, cannabis sativa, but they are very different.

Over the years, marijuana farmers have selectively bred their plants to be very high in THC and other compounds that interested them, either for a smell or an effect they had on the plant’s flowers.

THC is the main psychoactive component of the marijuana plant. In other words, THC is the primary agent responsible for creating the “high” feeling associated with marijuana use. This compound works by imitating the effects of anandamide, a neurotransmitter produced naturally by the human body to help modulate sleeping and eating habits, as well as the perception of pain.

CBD has the same chemical formula as THC, but the atoms are arranged differently. This slight variance causes THC to create a psychoactive effect while CBD lacks such an influence.

CBD accounts for up to 40 percent of cannabis extract. Its plentiful nature, coupled with its failure to produce a “high” effect, make it a strong candidate for medical applications.

What are the side effects of CBD?

There shouldn’t be any real health concerns when taking CBD. Aside from dry mouth, CBD is likely to be safe. It is recommended that you consult with your physician before starting with CBD if you have a serious disorder or illness, or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Can my doctor prescribe CBD?

There are currently 30 States plus the District of Columbia and the US Territories of Guam and Puerto Rico with Medical Marijuana Laws. There are also 16 States that have Laws that specifically address CBD. In all these states, the District of Columbia and US Territories, there are laws on the books that define conditions that Doctor’s can prescribe CBD for. For all other States, please check with your doctor and inquire as to their ability to write prescriptions for CBD.

Is It Legal To Buy CBD?

As long as the CBD is being sourced from farms that comply with the 2014 Farm Bill and the State(s) Department of Agriculture, yes.

The 2014 Farm Bill (Agricultural Act of 2014) changed the legal status of hemp in the U.S. Section 7606 conveyed to state Departments of Agriculture and institutions of higher learning the ability to grow, cultivate, process, and market hemp as long as research projects were conducted in accordance with corresponding state and federal laws.

While a small path to accessing this American grown superfood thus became available, it wasn’t until an August, 2016, issuance of a Statement of Principles by the USDA (also co-signed by DOJ/DEA and HHS/FDA) that federal agencies had a legal basis for the broad federal acceptance of hemp. Recent clarification has removed most of the legal questions about the movement of hemp and hemp-derived products over state and international lines.

Phoenix Tears requires that all products sold on the Phoenix Tears Network are compliant with applicable laws and as such legal for sale.

How do I know what is in what I’m taking?

Phoenix Tears Wellness requires that all products sold on our site are tested to ensure that the label matches what is in the container.

How is CBD regulated?

The Agricultural Act of 2014, Section 7606, Legitimacy of Industrial Hemp Research, defines industrial hemp as distinct from marijuana. In accordance with the provisions of the Act, it’s up to the states to regulate the farming of Hemp within their individual State Departments.

There are currently no federal guidelines for CBD products. The standards followed for label and distribution, within the CBD industry, are currently the same ones applied for nutritional supplements

Can CBD treat medical conditions or is it more for general use?

CBD has been proven to have anti inflammatory properties which can be very beneficial in helping individuals with varying conditions that result from a number of diseases.

CBD is also very good for general wellness. Athletes as well as many older individuals have found great benefits from the general use of CBD.

What is the difference between cannabis, hemp and marijuana?

Cannabis, Marijuana and Hemp are one in the same. Cannabis and Marijuana have been bred to generate high levels of THC which is the psychoactive component of the plant that gets people ******.

Hemp is the material/seed obtained from the plant, which has been bred to generate low levels of THC and high levels of CBD, which are used to make useful products that do not make you ******.

How is CBD harvested from the cannabis plant where it works like a medicine but yet not causing the “high” or marijuana (THC)?

Harvesting does not have an effect on the THC level of the CBD. The THC level is determined based on the genetics of the plant. CBD that is produced from the Hemp plant, in compliance with the Federal Farm Bill, has been bred to generate low levels of THC (i.e. below .3%).

Once the plant is processed, additional steps are taken to further ***** THC in order to bring it to lower levels. CBD Isolate for example generally has CBD levels of 99% or greater with 0% THC.

The medicinal properties of the plant come from nature. CBD has been in use for well over 10,000 years. The anti inflammatory properties and the ability to interact with our internal systems provides the healing properties that we look for.

What is the cost of CBD relative to that of marijuana (THC)?

CBD derived from Industrial Hemp is considerably more cost-effective than medical marijuana (THC). As with any organic product, prices are subject to fluctuation depending upon the amount of plant matter available for production.

What does CBD smell like?

For CBD that is produced from quality licensed facilities, many people report a slight vanilla odor associated with the smell of CBD.

High quality CBD that has been processed following strict cleansing and testing protocols has a very mild aftertaste. All Phoenix Tears Tinctures have a pleasant natural flavoring with little to no aftertaste.

Have there been any clinical trials showing CBD’s healing benefits? If not, why not?

Yes, clinical trials have been conducted that demonstrate the Biology and Therapuedic benefits of CBD. While more research is needed the early results have been very favorable.
