A Guide on the Effects of CBD Oil Use in Your Body
It has been proven that CBD oil products have a significant impact in dealing with chronic pain, inflammation, nausea, depression, and even has traits that fight off cancer cells. Despite all these benefits, people have various questions regarding how the use of CBD oil affects their body in general. The concern that people has is whether the use of CBD oil products can cause a person to be high and if a drug test is done, CBD used will be manifested. This article addresses how CBD oil affects your body.
People are concerned about whether CBD products can get them 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. The little traces of the THC compound which is responsible for the high feeling that may be available in the hemp are less than 0.3%, and this is so low a percentage to cause you to be high. CBD also can prevent the activation of receptor cells that are responsible for causing a high feeling in a person’s body. CBD oil does not, therefore, result in a high feeling.
The concern on whether CBD shows up when a drug test is performed is also present. Drug tests may sometimes be required by law, and employers may need them so that they can be sure of maximum productivity and safety in the workplace for employees. 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. However, there may be small traces of THC in hemp derived CBD products, and with high rates of CBD product consumption, ranging from 1000 to 2000 mg per day, there may be enough THC to show up on a drug test and produce 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. If the CBD product you use has 0% THC, the test will not be positive.
There is a concern on how long CBD stays 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. CBD will no longer be present in the blood within one week of stopping to use CBD products, and by two weeks it will not be present in urine.
