CBD, without a doubt, is the biggest and most talked about, wellness product at the moment. From CBD beverages to edible deserts, CBD can be found nearly everywhere. Even though CBD products are dominating the health and wellness industry, many new consumers are still very confused and skeptical about the products. So what exactly is CBD?
CBD is the abbreviation for cannabidiol, which is a chemical compound found in hemp plants. The compound is naturally occurring and is most commonly found in the flower of the hemp plant. Today, CBD is used in oils and other supplements to evoke feelings of calmness and relaxation. Many consumers misinterpret the effects of CBD and confuse it with the psychoactive effects associated with THC, or marijuana.

CBD Will Not Make Your Feel “High”
Though CBD and THC are very closely related the two are also very different. CBD is extracted from the flowers of hemp plants, while THC is extracted from marijuana plants. According to the definition, hemp plants contain less than 0.3% THC, thus, consumers will not feel the psychoactive effects associated with marijuana. The elevated levels of CBD in hemp plants are most commonly used in products that aid in relaxation. Many consumers also use the products to uphold personal health and wellness.
Will CBD Show Up On A Drug Test?
Depending on where the CBD is purchased from, some products may contain higher levels of THC. Rock Creek Organic’s CBD contains minimal traces of THC (less than 0.3%). However, similar to how poppy seeds will set off an opioid drug test, the consumption of some CBD products may result in a failed drug test. If you are required to take a drug test, we suggest talking to your health care provider prior to ingesting or using any topical forms of CBD.
