A Guide on the Effects of CBD Oil Use in Your Body
CBD oil products have been shown to be a solution to many health challenges, such as relieving chronic pain, inflammation, depression, nausea, and even fighting off cancer cells. Many people are however concerned about other effects of CBD oil products on their bodies. The concern is whether CBD oil products cause one to get high and if CBD can show up during a drug test. Herein is a guide to help you understand the effects of CBD oil use in your body.
There is a concern on whether using CBD oil can cause one to be high. CBD oil is extracted not from marijuana but from hemp in the cannabis plant which contains various cannabinoids. The compound that is responsible for the feeling of being high is found in marijuana and not in the hemp. There may be small traces of the THC compound that is responsible for the high feeling in the hemp, but this is less than 0.3% and is so tiny to affect your body. The CBD oil also can block receptors in the body which when activated cause a person to experience the high feeling. You will not get high, therefore, from the use of CBD oil.
People are also concerned about whether CBD will be shown on a drug test. One may be required to go through drug tests when they are taking up a new job since employers are concerned about whether one will be impaired at work and even comply with law requirements. Since CBD does not cause any psychoactive effects, it does not cause impairment, and many employers will not be concerned about taking a CBD oil drug test. The small traces of THC may show up on a drug test when there is high consumption of CBD products, ranging from 1000 to 2000 mg per day, thus indicating a false positive result. There is a minimal likelihood of getting positive drug test results for THC in CBD products, and even when it is found, the levels cannot meet the federal limit. The use of CBD products with 0% THC means that you would not test positive on a drug test.
People are also concerned about how long CBD will stay in the bloodstream. If for example one needs to undergo a medical procedure that requires them to be free of any drugs in their system, one may have to stop taking CBD in that particular season. Studies show that CBD will not be present in the blood after one week, and even though comprehensive studies have not been done to prove this, CBD should be undetectable in urine in no longer than two weeks.
