Do CBD Products Have Any THC?

“Does CBD oil have THC?” is one of the most common questions people ask. The answer is…it depends. Farm bill-compliant products contain a negligible amount of THC — up to 0.3% THC or less. Some products contain CBD only; some contain CBD plus terpenes and other cannabinoids except THC, and some contain terpenes and a variety of cannabinoids including CBD.

Hemp CBD vs. Cannabis CBD

CBD can be extracted from both hemp and cannabis plants. While hemp and cannabis plants look similar, there are distinct differences between the two — mainly the amount of CBD and THC in each plant. The difference between CBD and THC is multi-faceted, but most people are interested in whether CBD will cause the same psychoactive effects as THC. The short answer is no — CBD won’t give you that “high” feeling. Hemp has become the predominant plant used for CBD because it was commercially legalized thanks to the Farm Bill of 2018.

Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, and CBD Isolate

CBD and THC, the two most popular and well-known cannabinoids, are not the only ones in the cannabis plant. In fact, there are over 100+ cannabinoids. In addition to cannabinoids, these plants also contain terpenes — organic compounds that provide aroma, flavor, and some therapeutic effects.

Full Spectrum CBD oil keeps all of those cannabinoids, terpenes, and nutrients working together to create a balanced option.

Broad Spectrum CBD oil preserves all of the above, minus THC.

CBD Isolate takes the opposite tactic, isolating CBD by itself.

Because of the beneficial properties found in the additional cannabinoids, terpenes and other components found in Full Spectrum CBD, many prefer this form. It’s a common notion that having all the components of a plant working together is more powerful than isolated components on their own. This is often referred to as “the entourage effect.”
