CBD (cannabidiol) is just one of over a hundred “phytocannabinoids,” that are unique to cannabis and make up the plant's healing properties. It’s usually the second-most abundant cannabinoid, behind THC. Unlike THC, CBD does not make you feel “stoned” or intoxicated because CBD and THC act in different ways on different receptors in the brain and body.
Good question; CBD is CBD. It’s a molecule that is found in both Hemp and Cannabis Sativa or Cannabis Indica which are more commonly referred to as Marijuana. The difference between CBD that’s extracted from Hemp is that the THC content is at or below 0.3% CBD oil that’s from Marijuana, normally has a higher THC content. For this not familiar with THC, that’s the molecule that is associated with getting you high.
Yes and no. CBD that’s extracted from Industrial Hemp and below the threshold of 0.3% is considered 50 states legal. CBD that contains a higher level of THC; such as the kind that is extracted from Marijuana is only legal in states that allow Marijuana for medicinal or recreational usage. So it’s based on your state and local government. The CBD products we produce or distribute are considered 50 states legal.

The short answer is maybe, if using full spectrum CBD or CBD that’s produced from Cannabis Sativa or Cannabis Indica which are Marijuana Strains. The 0.3 trace amount of THC is a legal level but some workplaces still prohibit its usage, so this is a valid question. CBD itself would not show up on a drug test, that much is certain. There are options such as CBD Isolate which is the CBD molecule separated from the rest of the constituents and is 0% THC. Or of course Broad Spectrum Hemp Distillate which contains CBD,CBG,CBN and CBC with noTHC.
Our Broad Spectrum Hemp CBD oil is derived from hemp that’s extracted with food grade ethanol which is a pure version of drinking alcohol, The extract undergoes a purification and distillation processes that results in a high quality CBD oil, free from all solvents.
All CBD Isolates, Full Spectrum or Broad Spectrum CBD we use in creating our products or products we distribute will be from the United States. Currently the Broad Spectrum Hemp Distillate we use in our balms is from California or Oregon. Any product we sell or distribute will have origin in its product description.
Exalted Naturals only uses lab tested CBD that’s Organically Grown in the United States. The Broad Spectrum Hemp Distillate we use is extracted using Food Grade Ethanol. All products we sell or distribute are tested free of any pesticides or residual solvents and that info is readily available.
We cannot make specific recommendations regarding serving sizes for consumable CBD such as tinctures and gummies. We recommend starting with a small amount of CBD, and gradually increasing the serving until the desired effects are achieved.
CBD functions by binding to cannabinoid receptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system. These receptors are found in virtually every cell and tissue type in the human body making CBD an alternative tool for an array of uses.
