CBD or cannabidiol is one of over 85 cannabinoids discovered so far in cannabis. CBD is present in more significant quantities in hemp than marijuana, and because it is non- psychoactive, CBD is widely regarded to possess the most health potential.
No, they won’t – CBD is non-psychoactive and our products contain zero THC.
While it’s true that hemp is relatively high in CBD, the overall cannabinoid content of industrial hemp will be low. Industrial hemp is genetically bred to produce fiber for various products or seeds for nutritional supplements. You won’t obtain CBD-rich yields from hemp unless you breed for CBD content.
Viperx’s hemp is grown and extracted under the strict guidelines of the Kentucky Department of Agricultural Industrial Hemp Pilot Program. We are able to sell in all 50 states, and internationally, without any risk.
Drug tests are geared toward identifying THC, not CBD. Viperx’s CBD oil contains zero THC, and therefore will not result in a failed drug test. With that being said, other CBD products may contain a small amount of THC, which would register on a drug test. Before consuming any CBD product, check with the manufacturer on whether the products contain THC.
In accordance with federal regulations we cannot make health claims regarding our dietary supplement products. We can only recommend our products for general wellness.
Kentucky’s ecology is perfect for growing hemp. The growing season is longer than in Colorado, and the soil is richer – so the quality of the hemp and the yields are better. Growing in under the Kentucky Hemp Pilot Program is also 100% compliant with Section 7606 of the 2014 Farm Bill, so harvesting and distributing is legal at the federal level.
Each batch of our CBD is third-party lab tested and guaranteed to be free of contaminants like heavy metals, bacterial and microbial life, mycotoxins and pesticides.
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of cannabinoid receptors located in the brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems, consisting of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors. There are two main types of receptors in the ECS, CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are primarily located in the central nervous system and brains of mammals, and CB2 are generally found in the peripheral nervous system. There are two main cannabinoids mammals produce- 2AG and Anandamide.
Hemp products sold in stores contain only trace amounts of CBD. Our products are made from 99%+ pure CBD isolate and offer additional nutritional benefits.
CBD derived from industrial hemp is legal as a food product. Our lawyers have advised us that it may not contain THC in any amount over .03%. Current laws are vague and legislators are working on them to improve safety and protocols.
The lead case that defines the legality of utilizing CBD derived from hemp is the federal case of Hemp Industries Association, et. al. v. Drug Enforcement Administration, 333 F.3d 1082 (2003). In that case, the federal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the sale and possession of seeds, oil, and cake derived from non-psychoactive hemp does not fall within the definition of “marijuana” set forth by Congress in the Controlled Substance Act, 21 U.S.C. § 802(16). The court further ruled that oil derived from hemp is not considered a regulated controlled substance within Schedule 1 of the Controlled Substances Act because it is not “marijuana”, and therefore, the DEA was prohibited from regulating hemp oil as a controlled substance. As a result, CBD derived from hemp is not “marijuana” for purposes of federal law and is not considered a regulated “controlled substance” within the Controlled Substances Act.
