THC and CBD are both compounds naturally derived from the cannabis plant. While THC has psychoactive properties that can affect our behavior, mood and motor skills, CBD is non-psychoactive and is widely used in the CBD industry. Being THC-free means there are no quantifiable or detectable levels of THC in a product. This does not mean that there is absolutely no THC content, but rather that it is below 0.3%.
CBD consumers are looking for the help it can provide with anxiety, pain and insomnia, not the psychoactive component (THC) found in marijuana that causes a high. That's why Clean Label Project created its THC-free certification program for CBD products. An isolate is simply purified CBD that does not contain THC or other cannabinoids, and is odourless and tasteless. To ensure that their products contain as little THC as possible, many producers of CBD-based treatments are trying to grow hemp plants that are specifically grown to have extremely low levels of THC.
To cater to people who prefer THC-free CBD oil, many brands have expanded their collections with a product known as CBD isolate. We use patented technology to remove all unwanted compounds, including plant pigments, chlorophyll, wax and traces of THC. Once these unwanted compounds are removed, the extract is washed to remove even the tiniest traces of THC. One of the most common reasons for taking CBD oil without THC is that CBD alone won't show up in a drug test result.
On the other hand, too much THC in the system can be counterproductive to the body by causing temporary anxiety. For these reasons, the deterioration of the mind caused by THC has been considered to make it unsafe (for example) to drive, and cannabis-derived products containing THC are illegal in many parts of the world.
