Hemp and Marijuana are completely different in cultivation, application, and application. Most people know marijuana for its medical and recreational uses. Hemp on the other hand, is used in a wide variety of ways that marijuana cannot, including clothing, dietary supplements, skin products and much more. While marijuana is still federally illegal, industrial hemp was legalized in 2014.

The FDA considers CBD to be a dietary supplement, since it is derived from industrial hemp plants. This means you don't need a prescription to legally purchase and/or consume CBD.
Following the passage of the Farm Bill, CBD products derived from industrial hemp are now legal throughout the United States. According to the new federal law, hemp is legal as long as it contains no more than 0.3% THC. Anything more than that and it's illegal under the federal ban on marijuana.
According to the National Institute of Health CBD has a “favorable safety profile” and anecdotal evidence suggests that it can be used long-term without any detriment to your health.
In comparison to other drugs used for similar treatments, CBD symptoms were much milder. Mild side effects from intense use may include tiredness, diarrhea, and a change in appetite or weight.

Cannabinoids are the chemicals that give the cannabis plant its medical properties. There are over 100 known cannabinoids, but THC and CBD are the most well known. THC is known for its psychoactive properties, while CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid with numerous benefits, such as anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties.
No. CBD is 100% non-psychoactive, which means it will not negatively impact your mental processes. THC is the only cannabinoid with a psychoactive component. CBD, even at extremely high doses, will not make you feel “high.”
The short answer is yes, it’s possible to fail a drug test with any CBD product. All of Utah Family Pharmacy's CBD products are derived from hemp, which means they have an extremely low level of THC: less than 0.3%. Although it is unlikely, it is possible that a drug screening could come back positive for THC while using CBD products. Drug tests look for elevated levels of THC, if they are detected it’s considered positive. There have been cases where individuals consumed enough CBD (and therefore consume enough THC) to surpass that threshold and trigger a positive result. For this reason we do not reccomend using CBD products if you asre required to take regular drug tests for employment or other reasons.
While Ananda’s THC free products are guaranteed to be 100% THC-free, you CAN fail a drug test due to false positives which happen with the most common tests. You CANNOT get a TRUE positive, but you may need to ask for a confirmation test for further verification.
