CBD oil may contain small amounts of THC because it is present at low levels in the hemp plant. CBD cannot have more than 0.3 percent THC to be federally legal. Full-spectrum hemp-derived CBD oil, on the other hand, is legally required to contain less than 0.3 percent THC. CBD products must contain 0.3% THC or less in accordance with federal law.
This low concentration of THC is unlikely to cause psychoactive effects in CBD users. However, there are accuracy problems when measuring THC, and products without other cannabinoids and terpenes may lose valuable therapeutic potential. The most common cannabinoids in cannabis are THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol). The THC and CBD content must be shown in all cannabis products.
Cannabis must be heated to at least 150 degrees Celsius to activate cannabinoids. The producer heats the cannabis during processing or when the product is heated.
