CBD Oil Facts
- CBD From Hemp Can’t Get You High
On account of the exceptionally low THC content found in Hemp-derived CBD products, there is no way you can feel any of the psychoactive effects identified with cannabis use. Premium CBD does not have any psychoactive effects, so you won't feel intoxicated when using these products.
- CBD Products Made From Hemp are Legal in All 50 States
CBD extracted from Industrial Hemp is federally legal in the U.S. Most CBD products contain minimal THC levels, making them legal to consume and non-intoxicating.
- CBD Products Made From Hemp Contain Very Low Levels of THC (or None at All)
One common myth is that CBD and THC are the same. People assume that Hemp contains high levels of THC like Marijuana, but this isn’t the case. The average level of THC in Industrial Hemp is less than 0.3%. However, Hemp contains significantly more CBD than the typical Marijuana plant, making it extremely useful for curating CBD products like CBD Oil, CBD Gummies and more. Hemp Bombs thoroughly lab tests all its CBD products to ensure they contain less than 0.3% THC, the federal legal limit for Hemp-derived CBD products.
