ND THC is the acronym for non-detectable tetrahydrocannabinol. THC is the psychoactive cannabinoid in cannabis and is typically tested for when taking a drug test. THC is still illegal at the Federal level, which is why it is crucial to educate yourself on the terms and products associated with cannabis, hemp, and CBD.
Unfortunately, there are different ways companies are marketing this term that may be misleading.
All of our products have ‘Zero THC’, ‘ND THC’, or ‘<0.3% THC’ in the title line.
Zero THC: Absolutely no THC (CBD Isolate)
ND THC: THC has been removed and should be non-detectable (Broad Spectrum)
<0.3% THC: Has THC, but less than 0.3% as required by law (Full Spectrum)
THC Levels and Drug Testing
Although some states have legalized medicinal and recreational marijuana, the federal limit for a CBD product to be considered hemp is <0.3% THC, according to the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 SEC. 10113 – also known as the Farm Bill.
ND THC may also be labeled as:
- THC free
- CBD without THC
- Broad spectrum CBD
Factors to consider when using CBD products with Full Spectrum, <0.3% THC, or other similar labeling are:
- Amount and rate of consumption
- Body Weight/Size
- Work out routine
THC is fat-soluble, and high-dose users can test positive for up to a month.
Although not common with ND THC products, some side effects may include:
- Increased appetite
- Relaxed muscles
- Reduced pain
- Reduced anxiety
What To Look For When Buying ND THC Products
As we mentioned, some manufacturers are pushing the limit with the way they market. However, there are some ways you can check to be sure you are getting what you want.
Certificate of Analysis
A COA is a document from a trusted third-party lab that verifies a CBD product contains what the label says it does. We post all of our COA’s on each product page under the ‘Lab Tests’ tab.
These factors provide the consumer – you – with peace of mind and prove that the product is what it says. This is extremely important because when the CBD market first boomed, a gross amount of “snake oil” salesmen pushed out false CBD products. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) website publicly shares all of the companies and brands that have they tested and found do not contain the levels of CBD they claimed.
Isolate vs Broad Spectrum vs Full Spectrum
These labels mean with and without THC, as defined by what we have discussed above.
Isolate: This is the purest form of CBD and doesn’t contain any other cannabinoids.
Broad Spectrum: This is another way of saying ND THC. This form contains several cannabinoids and terpenes, but the THC has been removed.
Amount of CBD
Most users start with a low serving and move up. If the labels or packaging are vague and do not offer per serving use such as milligram, be wary. Some will only have how much is in the bottle, which isn’t always clear on how much you should take. The more transparent the label, the more I would trust a product. This also reflects making sure they have a COA posted.
Also, make sure you check with your doctor if you are taking any medications. CBD can sometimes interfere with different medications.
Always be vigilant when taking any supplement. Make sure that you are following your doctor and the label’s directions.
