Cannabidiol CBD

Will this show up on a drug test?

You will not fail a drug test from pure natural CBD…….however, you need to do your research don’t be afraid to ask any shop if this product has third party tests done on it. At our shop we only import 100% USA & European Union approved legal CBD. There has been a wave of “Illegal” Synthetic products flooding our “Organic CBD” market here in Bavaria and in many places in the EU. These products are in fact called K2, Spice, Zombie, Synthetic Marijuana and they are sold as CBD, it is not at all CBD. Many smaller companies or home made products will not have any labels or safety information. Just be smart and ask, if it feels shady it probably is. Upon request we have all the 3rd party lab test for every single one of our Organic CBD products. 

 

Current U.S Military Laws

 The U.S Government has laws and regulations that prohibit the use of “Hemp” products that do not pertain to Civilians. Even though “Industrial HEMP” products are legal in ALL 50 States. Below you can find the Official Literature that pertains to your service’s laws, regulations & feelings towards the use of products made with “Industrial HEMP”.  

 

Air Force:  AFI 90-507, section 1.1.6, states that “the ingestion of products containing or products derived from hemp seed or hemp seed oil is prohibited.” 

 

Army:  Army Substance Abuse Program, AR600-85, section 4-2p states “this regulation prohibits Soldiers from using Hemp or products containing Hemp oil.” 

 

Marine Corps:  The Marine Corps currently have no restrictions on the use of hemp-based products that are legally sold in the United States. 

 

Navy:  OPNAVINST 5350.4d, Drug Testing Program, Enclosure (2), states that the “Navy has ‘zero tolerance’ for…the wrongful use, possession, manufacture, or distribution of a controlled substance,” which includes marijuana and THC. The Navy does not have a formal policy on the use of hemp products in food. 

 

Coast Guard: COMDTINST M1000.10, Chapter 5, section D.1, states that “The Coast Guard does not tolerate the intentional use of illegal drugs, illicit chemical analogues, or prescription drug misuse. This includes ingestion of hemp oil or products made with hemp seed oil; however, does not include food items regulated and approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) that contain hemp ingredients.”

 

Currently underway in 2020:

“the House of Representatives voted in favor of an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that approves the use of CBD and other hemp-derived products by members of the United States military. The measure, sponsored by Iraq War veteran Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), passed by a vote of 336-71.

“Secretary of Defense may not prohibit, on the basis of a product containing hemp or any ingredient derived from hemp, the possession, use, or consumption of such product by a member of the Armed Forces” under the condition that “such possession, use, or consumption is in compliance with applicable Federal, State, and local law,” the amendment states.

Gabbard enacted the amendment in response to an early 2020 announcement by the Department of Defense (DOD) forbidding CBD use by service members, even though CBD is federally legal. Since the DOD’s announcement, different branches of the military have issued their own conflicting CBD policies.

Outlined in 2019 guidelines from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the issue is over the possibility that some CBD products might theoretically contain traces of THC, the intoxicating cannabis compound. What products, specifically, isn’t clear. Nonetheless, the DOD released a blanket statement dounouncing CBD use.” Cited from an article on MerryJane

What is Cannabidiol ?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a phytocannabinoid discovered in 1940. It is one of 113 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants and accounts for up to 40% of the plant’s extract. As of 2019, clinical research on CBD included studies related to anxiety, cognition, movement disorders, and pain, but there is insufficient high-quality evidence that cannabidiol is effective for these conditions.

Cannabidiol can be taken in multiple ways, including by inhalation of cannabis smoke or vapor, as an aerosol spray into the cheek, and by mouth. It may be supplied as CBD oil containing only CBD as the active ingredient (excluding tetrahydrocannabinol [THC] or terpenes), CBD-dominant hempextract oil, capsules, dried cannabis, or prescription liquid solution. CBD does not have the same psychoactivity as THC, and may change the effects of THC on the body if both are present. As of 2018, the mechanism of action for its biological effects has not been determined.

In the United States, the cannabidiol drug Epidiolex was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2018 for the treatment of two epilepsydisorders. Since cannabis is a Schedule I controlled substance in the United States, other CBD formulations remain illegal under federal law to prescribe for medical use or to use as an ingredient in dietary supplements or other foods. “All links and information will lead you to Wikipedia, all information has been cited from Wikipedia”

Is CBD legal in the European Union?

In 2019, the European Commission announced that CBD and other cannabinoids would be classified as “novel foods“, meaning that CBD products would require authorization under the EU Novel Food Regulation stating that because “this product was not used as a food or food ingredient before May 15, 1997, before it may be placed on the market in the EU as a food or food ingredient, a safety assessment under the Novel Food Regulation is required. The recommendation – applying to CBD extracts, synthesized CBD, and all CBD products, including CBD oil – was scheduled for a final ruling by the European Commission in March 2019. If approved, manufacturers of CBD products would be required to conduct safety tests and prove safe consumption, indicating that CBD products would not be eligible for legal commerce until at least 2021. In December 2020, the European commission concluded that CBD should not be considered as drug and can be qualified as food.

Cannabidiol is listed in the EU Cosmetics Ingredient Database (CosIng). However, the listing of an ingredient, assigned with an INCI name, in CosIng does not mean it is to be used in cosmetic products or is approved for such use.

Several industrial hemp varieties can be legally cultivated in Western Europe. A variety such as “Fedora 17” has a cannabinoid profile consistently around 1%, with THC less than 0.3%. “All links and information will lead you to Wikipedia, all information has been cited from Wikipedia”
