CBD and THC Worries and Concerns

One of the biggest concerns surrounding buying full spectrum CBD oils online or over the counter is the implications of having THC present. The biggest question we get from oHHo Family members: Does CBD oil get you high? Others express concerns regarding if oHHo is legal, if it can be used during the day and if you'll be able to pass a drug test. You can read more about this in our FAQs. 


Let’s start with the basics: THC is the compound of the Cannabis plant that gets you high and It’s the most prevalent phytocannabinoid in the plant. It stands for tetrahydrocannabinol and constitutes less than 0.3 %/ percent of the dried flowers in our hemp strains. It can also constitute up to 25% or more in the dried flowers of more potent varieties. If you ingest around 2.5mg of THC you may notice the ‘high’ effects. 



Can CBD Get me High?


The bottom line: oHHo and other full spectrum oils do not get you high! oHHo is derived from cannabis plants that have been selected not because of the increased level of THC but because of the high level of CBD. CBD is non-intoxicating and the level of THC in our products at our recommended dosing level is too low to cause an unwanted high.


Is oHHo a daytime thing? oHHo products as well as other oils can be used during the day and won’t have any unwanted effects you’d associate with traditional cannabis. Find your oHHo and what works best with your daily routine. 



Does CBD Work Better With THC?


Yes. THC is only present in full spectrum products like oHHo because we believe it matters as it contributes to a boosted, entourage, effect of CBD. THC in a medical context is being prescribed for a number of ailments with significant success.


Keeping low levels of THC in our products reflects our mission of always offering products with integrity. A full spectrum CBD product offers a boosted effect as the profile of cannabinoids and terpenes creates synergistic enhancement. This is called the entourage effect. This is not possible with broad spectrum or CBD isolate products. 


oHHo is principled on bringing the most potent and pure products to markets. We only use the natural goodness from the hemp plant to make our oil without altering the balance the plant has provided.


The science behind cannabis research suggests that CBD acts on our internal regulatory system called the endocannabinoid system. According to market data, the main reasons people have begun using CBD are for tackling anxiety, aiding with sleep and to reduce inflammation.


When you are looking to buy CBD online to find what suits you, start with the best full spectrum product you can find. Buy a broad spectrum product, only if you are concerned about trace amounts of THC.
