What is CBD?

Cannabidiol, commonly called CBD, is one of the compounds found in the hemp and marijuana plant, which are both strains of the cannabis plant. Aethics products contain CBD derived from hemp grown on our own farm. We do not use CBD from the marijuana plant.

Will Aethics™ products get me high?

No. Aethics™ CBD is extracted from the hemp plant, not the marijuana plant, and contains 0.3% or less THC, the psychoactive compound found in the marijuana plant that causes a psychoactive effect. When taken at the recommended dosage level, there is not enough THC present to make you high.

Is CBD legal in my state?

Forty-seven states, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico have passed laws that permit the recreational or medicinal use, or both, of CBD. Only Idaho, South Dakota and Nebraska have not passed such laws. Because of hemp’s relationship to marijuana, CBD has been burdened by the laws and stigma associated with marijuana, despite the fact that hemp-derived CBD products do not make you high when used as recommended. More detail regarding state-by-state laws can be found here.

Will I fail a drug test if I use an Aethics™ product?

Drug tests are designed to identify THC in the body. Because Aethics™ products contain only a trace of THC (.3% or less), it is unlikely you would fail a drug test after ingesting or applying a CBD product topically in accordance with dosage/application directions. However, depending on the sensitivity of the test, how much CBD you ingested/applied, and other variables, it is possible you could fail a drug test. It’s best to understand your employer’s, school’s, or sports team’s rules as it relates to CBD.

Is hemp seed oil and hemp oil the same thing?

No. Hemp seed oil is derived from the seeds of the hemp plant and contains very little CBD. Hemp oil is extracted from the stalks, leaves, and flowers of the hemp plant and is rich in CBD content.

Do Aethics™ products contain isolate or full spectrum CBD?

Aethics™ offers both isolate (CBD only) and full-spectrum (whole hemp) products. Full-spectrum CBD oil contains an array of hemp plant compounds (cannabinoids, terpenes, minerals, vitamins, fats, and proteins) that work together to provide the greatest therapeutic effect. CBD-only oil or powder, called “isolate,” is CBD separated from other cannabidiol compounds.
