CBD oil and Hemp oil are often used interchangeably to describe a hemp extract that’s mixed with oil. CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of 120 different molecules called “cannabinoids” found in cannabis. Just like it’s more popular sister, Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD offers a large amount of health benefits…but without the “high” that is associated with THC. People are looking to CBD products to help with symptoms from conditions such as pain and inflammation. CBD can also help with mental issues such as anxiety and depression.
Interesting Fact: There is actually a pharmaceutical grade CBD product that exists to help manage seizures associated with epilepsy. The prescription drug is called Epidiolex.
Cannabinoids, like CBD, in lower doses actually promote energy, as opposed to sedative effects at larger doses. New Phase Blends takes advantage of this unique ability of cannabinoids and blends it with synephrine for an incredible product that incorporates CBD for energy!
“Go” is very similar to an energy shot, except it’s non-caffeinated and completely natural. Synephrine is an alkaloid, occurring naturally in some plants and animals, and also in approved drugs products as its m-substituted analog known as neo-synephrine. It has stimulative effects and promotes energy, focus, and well-being.
Studies in humans and animals to date have shown that the combination of p-synephrine with caffeine is safe and free of adverse events. “Go” could be considered even safer since it is non-caffeinated.
The only side effects that are known from taking excess amounts of CBD include: nausea, headaches, and lethargy. The side effects of synephrine include: high blood pressure, headaches, or migraines. For this reason, it is not a recommended product if you have high blood pressure.
The second most common question people have when it comes to CBD oil for pain management or its anti-inflammatory properties is whether or not it is safe to use.
Patients are always concerned with additional potential and side effects (as they should be). According to some top health experts and agencies, the answer is yes. It is safe to use.
Hemp-derived CBD is legal in all 50 states. CBD made from marijuana, with high levels of THC, is only legal in states that have legalized marijuana. All CBD oil sold by New Phase Blends is considered THC Free (meaning less than 0.3% THC content). For more information, please see the FDA’s regulation of cannabis and cannabis-derived products here.
Interesting fact: Originally, marijuana use and sales became illegal under the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937, with this illegality continuing under the Controlled Substances Act. Yet, since then, several states have taken the steps to legalize this drug, even if just for use as medical cannabis.
While it is technically possible to show a false positive on a drug test for THC, it is highly unlikely as long as your CBD oil is genuinely THC free. If enough THC is present, it will show up on a drug test. This means that in rare cases, using CBD might lead to a positive drug test. New Phase Blends offers THC free CBD oil verifiable by a certificate of analysis by our laboratory. These can be viewed under the header “certificate of analysis” on the product pages.
If you have a job that has very strict rulings against the use of THC, it is probably more safe to avoid CBD useage, for now. You will most likely not test positive for THC, but on the rare chance that you do…it’s just not worth it.
