What is CBD?
CBD (cannabidiol) is the dominant chemical compound in the hemp plant, first discovered in 1940. It’s non-intoxicating, and it works as a cannabinoid, attaching itself to cannabinoid receptors in the body. This is a function of the endocannabinoid system that supports homeostasis, which is what makes CBD so valuable to a person’s daily routine.
What is THC?
THC (delta 9 THC) is a psychoactive cannabinoid found in both hemp in marijuana. In hemp, THC makes up only about 0.3% of the plant’s chemical composition. THC is also a cannabinoid like CBD, and so it plays a role in the endocannabinoid system’s efforts to maintain homeostasis.

Other products combine full or broad spectrum CBD with THC. Products that contain only CBD and THC isolates are terpene-free and labeled as such.
Are CBD + THC Products Going to Result in a Failed Drug Test?
Consuming a CBD + THC product puts you at risk of failing a drug test. While CBD is not detected on standard urine tests, THC usage is, as drug tests identify THC-COOH, an enzyme responsible for breaking down THC levels in the body. If you are drug tested regularly, you should avoid these products.
Can I Drive After Taking a CBD + THC Product?

- Poor coordination skills
- Dry mouth and dry eyes
It should be noted that these side effects are more likely to occur if you take higher than recommended dosage amounts.

The CBD is known to “take the edge off” of THC, in a way that can make the high more mellowing to the body as well as the mind. Most people who combine these cannabinoids do so for the purpose of improving their mood, feeling at ease at nighttime and finding relief from physical tension and discomfort in the body.
