Frequently Asked Questions
What is CBD?
CBD is the second most prominent compound in cannabis. The cannabis plant contains many different cannabinoids, we have seen over 80 different types and it seems there are many more. Most people have heard of a cannabinoid called THC, which is the ingredient in cannabis that gets users high. Unlike THC, CBD (cannabidiol) is a non psychoactive cannabinoid and does not cause a high. CBD has antipsychotic effects which means CBD works completely the opposite way of THC. Numerous studies suggest that CBD also acts to reduce the intoxicating effects of THC.
Does CleanMed CBD Oil/Hemp Oil contain THC?
We use the cannabis/hemp strains containing high concentrations of CBD, other cannabinoids and untraceable amounts of THC.
What is CBD oil?
CBD oil is derived from cannabis plants that have high levels of cannabidiol (CBD) while having low levels of THC. At CleanMed, our CBD oils always have less than 0.2% THC. These extracts can then be mixed with other oils such as coconut oil, to lower the viscosity of the extract. The cannabidiol (CBD) content of CBD oil varies tremendously, since the manufacturers use a varying assortment of cannabis plants and preparation techniques. At CleanMed we use CBD oil with a high concentration of CBD and containing 0.2% THC.
What is Hemp oil?
Hemp oil is simply another word used for CBD oil, as both are terms to mean cannabis extracts. But be aware that there is also a huge misunderstanding about the difference between hemp seed oil and hemp oil, with many people believing they are the same. Hemp seed oil is derived purely from hemp seeds, and is used in food preparation but does not contain CBD or any other cannabinoids.
How is CBD oil/Hemp oil manufactured?
At CleanMed our CBD is extracted using solvent free CO2 extraction. In other words, using the CO2 from the air we breath to extract the beneficial molecules.

CBD Oil/Hemp Oil and other hemp products are considered to be food-based. As such, there are no restrictions on the production, sale and consumption of hemp oil in the United States. CBD Oil/Hemp Oil is legal in most countries in the world as long is it contains low, or in some countries, untraceable, concentrations of the molecule THC.
Can I get high from CBD in the hemp oil?

Will I test positive for Cannabis if I use CBD Hemp oil?
Whatever your thoughts and opinions on workplace drug testing, it is a reality for many employees. Most drug tests screen for THC (delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol). Our products contain almost untraceable amounts of THC. However, studies have shown that eating foods containing hemp (seeds, oil, etc.) can cause confirmed positive results for THC. Therefore, if you are subject to any form of drug testing, it is our recommendation to talk with whomever may be testing you prior to using any hemp-derived CBD products.
