CBD vs. THC

Happy National CBD Month! At Ridgway Hemp Co., we strive to give you incredible herbal formulas combined with Certified Organic Hemp-derived Full Spectrum CBD Oil. 

If you have never tried CBD products, you may be a little skeptical. Let us educate you about everything CBD is about, and how it’s different from THC!

What’s the difference?

Although CBD (cannabidiol) is legal everywhere in the United States, individuals are not aware of the differences between CBD and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis.

The biggest misconception about CBD is that it has the same effect on the body as THC. The two compounds are completely different.

The cannabis plant is made up of a large number of compounds. CBD and THC are the most commonly used in medicine. Both have a similar chemical structure, but they create a different effect due to how the atoms are rearranged. CBD is the compound found in cannabis and does not create a high, while THC is the compound that does. 

Will CBD get me high or make me fail a drug test?

Nope! When CBD is extracted from a hemp plant, it contains less than 0.3 percent THC, which is why there are no psychoactive effects on the body. For this reason, CBD may be marketed to people looking to experience health benefits, but do not want to feel high. 

At Ridgway Hemp Co., we use a Full Spectrum CBD that contains 0.3% THC or less, which shouldn’t show up on a drug test. And if ingesting CBD from a tincture isn’t your thing, try out our Love Balms! Our topicals relieve dry skin, and even get deep into the muscle to aid in pain relief and reduce inflammation.

Our mission, no matter the product, is to give you the best experience possible! Some of our core passions include: ongoing testing on all of our starting ingredients and finished products through certified third party labs, compliance in all regards, from our labels to our facility and USDA Certified Organic ingredients. 

Even though National CBD Month is coming to a close, take the time to learn which Ridgway Hemp Co. CBD products are perfect for you. Show love to yourself and your body!
