Since the use of CBD became legal in many parts of the world, there is a tremendous flow of CBD products to the market. The number of its users is also increasing as the news about the benefits associated with CBD is spreading. Even though it has become legal and popular, there are still doubts among people about its effect on the human body. One of the major questions that are raised with regards to CBS is that does it show up in drug tests?
Since CBD is a new product and due to the huge number of competitive products in the market, there is no exact solution for this issue. It is certain that the element called cannabidiol is not a drug and usage of the same will not make a person fail a drug test. But, we cannot assure that all the products that are available in the market are safe for use. A consumer must understand the following facts about CBD and can save themselves from infusing wrong CBD products.
Understand the Source
CBD can be derived from both the hemp plant and the marijuana plant. Even though it is only legal to sell CBD extracted from the hemp plant, there are many manufacturers selling CBD that is derived from marijuana plant because it is a cheaper and more abundant source of CBD. The main problems when using marijuana plant to extract CBD is that those products will have higher concentration of THC than hemp that can make a person fail a drug test.
Research on the Extraction Process
CBD can be extracted using two methods. One is by using pressurized carbon dioxide and the other is by using a solvent. Even though the first method is more efficient in extracting pure CBD, most of the small manufacturers prefer the second method because it is more cost saving than the former one. The solvent method use several solutions to extract CBD from the plant and to reduce the expense, some manufacturers use certain chemical solutions to extract the same. The risk of using such a CBD product is that, such CBD can be contaminated and may generate THC when combined with the cannabinoids of CBD.
Since there are no strict rules and regulations in the CBD market, several law quality products are also emerging in such a market on a daily basis. Therefore, to escape from such traps, it is better to purchase good branded products even if it is a bit more expensive than the rest.
