Is CBD Safe?
Yes, pure Cannabidiol (CBD) is completely safe. However, since CBD is unregulated by the FDA, you might be wondering how this is.
One of the main factors that suggest the safety of CBD is that it’s legal in all 50 states. In 2018, the U.S. government legalized CBD and hemp-derived products with the passing of the Farm Bill. That same year, the World Health Organization declared CBD to be safe, followed by a report stating that, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential… To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.” Since then, many other countries have followed suit. Numerous studies have also discovered the long list of health benefits of CBD to combat things like anxiety, inflammation, arthritis, and more.
As the FDA completes its regulatory processes, we do the following to ensure we deliver top-quality, safe CBD products:
- Each product is independently tested by a 3rd party laboratory for impurities (residual solvents, pesticides, molds, fungi, mycotoxins) and potency (mg/dose as listed on the label). For proof of these testings, don’t hesitate to visit our Certificate of Analysis page.
- We only source from manufacturers that utilize above industry standards, such as FDA-approved laboratory procedures and cGMP manufacturing facilities
- We operate under a return policy that ensures you’re completely satisfied
Is Delta 8 THC Safe?
Delta-8 THC has exploded in popularity. However, there’s recently been an influx of news stories reporting that it is unsafe.
These claims are mainly addressing the fact that Delta-8 THC, just like CBD, is unregulated and that delta-8 manufacturers don’t have to adhere to quality control and safety standards imposed upon licensed companies. This means that no regulations are present to ensure the safety and quality of the products. That is why our team at Trek CBD applies rigorous safety protocols and testing procedures to all of our Delta-8 products to ensure the purity and potency meet our standards. All of our products are also sourced from manufacturers that utilize high-quality industry standards.
Is Delta-8 THC Safe for Your Health?
In the 1970s, the U.S. criminalized Marijuana and Hemp, making clinical research on these substances very difficult. And, the only way to truly determine a compound’s safety profile is through clinical trials. Because of this, there’s unfortunately still a lot that’s unknown about the 113+ compounds or cannabinoids found in the Hemp plant. This includes Delta-8 THC – an extremely rare cannabinoid known to exist in cannabis that produces a calm, gentle euphori when taken in moderate amounts. Because Delta-8 THC is still a relatively recent discovery, there hasn’t been much research conducted on the short and long term effects.
However, here’s what we do know about Delta-8 THC:
Since the 1970s, there’s been over 200 peer-reviewed papers published on Delta-8 THC. One of the most cited studies in 1990 reported that only two out of eight children experienced any side effects. The side effects were reported to include slight irritability and one case of euphoria. Otherwise, all other doses were reported to be well-tolerated. Another study conducted in 1973 explored the effects of both Delta-8 THC and Delta-9 THC on male subjects. The researchers found that the effects of Delta-8 THC were similar to those reported from Delta-9 THC and that Delta-8 THC seemed to have weaker effects than Delta 9 THC.
However, as previously noted, with few human studies on Delta-8 THC, the precise short and long-term effects aren’t very clear.
Third Party Lab Testing
As previously mentioned, all of our products here at Trek CBD are carefully and thoroughly tested by independent, third party laboratories. We use several independent labs across the country, as well as here locally in North Carolina, such as Delta 9 Analytical, EVIO Labs, and Think 20. Proof of these tests can be found on our Certificate of Analysis page.
The tests affirm two things: potency and purity. The potency test detects 12 different cannabinoids (mg/ml) to ensure you do not get too much or too little per dose. The purity test scans for 25 different residual solvents and heavy metals, 12 microbials and mycotoxins, and over 40 pesticides to ensure that the product is free of such things. Ultimately, the tests ensure that all of our products are top-quality and safe to use.
Medical Safety Warning
Before using CBD products, please consult with your healthcare professional, especially if you’re taking prescribed medications. There’s still lots we don’t know about which medications can safely interact with CBD, so be sure to confirm with your healthcare professional if you’re taking medication. It’s also important to check the labels of any medication you’re taking for possible restrictions. For example, your medication may say to “avoid grapefruit,” which would mean you’d need to avoid some CBD products.
Overall, to ensure your complete safety, we urge you to consult with your healthcare professional before using CBD products and visit our FAQ page for more information.
