17 Aug Navy Says NO to CBD
Although the 2018 Farm Bill took hemp-based CBD products off of the controlled substance list, the Navy is warning its sailors and Marines to stay away from CBD products.
CBD has shown to help relieve pain, anxiety, and inflammation, but still isn’t regulated by the FDA. Because of this the Navy has put out a service wide message claiming that many of the ingredients can be unknown and some products could have higher concentrations that the .3% legal limit of Delta-9 THC. Meaning… they are warning their service men and women that they could possibly test positive on a drug test if they use CBD products.
“It can be impossible to determine where a CBD or hemp product was manufactured and what level of THC it may contain,” the Navy said in a news release. “Even trace amounts of THC can accumulate in the body and be detected in a urinalysis screening.”
Truth is, although sailors deserve safe access to CBD, the Navy is right on this one.
First, the FDA doesn’t regulate CBD products. There is a huge social responsibility for CBD companies to put out a safe and consistent product. At Chillum CBD Dispensary we commission third party lab tests on all our Phytocannabinoid Rich Hemp Flower. We’ve seen samples come back that weren’t what they were supposed to be, and we’ve heard a great deal of horror stories about other samples being tested and toxins being found. A huge responsibility for our company is to ensure the safety of our customers and we take every precaution we can to ensure that our customers are getting a safe product that can provide the medicinal benefits they need.
Other companies? Unfortunately, not so much….
Second, they can be right about the drug tests. Since full spectrum CBD products have really taken a hold in the marketplace these drug tests used can’t tell the difference between hemp and cannabis. Since hemp can contain trace amounts of THC, less than .3%, it is possible for those trace amounts to store and build up in your system.
It is a shame because CBD has shown, as stated above, to be helpful for pain, anxiety, and inflammation. Which are three things that many of our service men and women struggle with. CBD has also shown to have no intoxicating or addictive effects. Our service men and women are fighting for us every day and deserve safe access to CBD!
