Well, the simple answer to this is; THC will get you high. Dark Sky CBD will not.
To explain this further, we have to get a little bit technical. THC affects the brain by binding to things called CB-1 receptors in the central nervous system. CBD is a completely differently shaped molecule that binds to the CB-2 receptors found in cell and body tissues outside of the central nervous system.
The short answer? No. Dark Sky CBD is non-intoxicating and non-psychoactive. THC is the molecule that attaches itself in the brain and causes the psychoactive effects that marijuana is best known for.
CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of the many active cannabinoids found in the marijuana plant. It is the second most abundant cannabinoid behind THC. CBD, or Cannabidiol, is non-pcychoactive. This means it cannot get you high.
Our bodies have a system throughout them called the endocannabinoid system. CBD works by binding to the cannabinoid receptors found in this system. These receptors have been found in many cell and tissue types throughout the human body.
There are a few different ways to isolate and extract CBD from the cannabis plant, but there is a clear winner when it comes to the safest, purest form of extraction. That winner is the CO2 extractions method. This is the method you should look out for when purchasing CBD isolate products. This method leave virtually zero traces of chemical contaminants in the end product. Alcohol extraction is another method. With this method a liquid such as butane or ethanol is run through raw plant materials to extract the CBD and then evaporated to leave only the CBD. This method isn’t as “clean” as CO2 extraction as it can leave trace amounts of the liquid (Butane/ethanol) in the final product.
Yes. Dark Sky CBD is as natural as it comes. It comes directly from the ground.
Dark Sky CBD is legal at the federal level. Industrial hemp is described by the 2018 Farm Bill as having less than 0.3% THC. Dark Sky CBD is not intoxicating, and will not generate a high.
Always check your State laws: State laws differ on the legality of Dark Sky CBD. So be sure to check your State laws before using or purchasing Dark Sky CBD product.
Delta 8 THC is one of the many minor cannabinoids found in the hemp plant, meaning it’s not found in abundance. Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC have similar molecular structures, but the small differences make it so that Delta 8 THC is less potent than Delta 9 THC.
Delta 9 THC is the primary cannabinoid found in the marijuana plant, but it is also found in the hemp plant. Because marijuana and hemp are both in the cannabis family, Delta 9 THC can be derived from either source. Our soft chews contain cannabinoids derived from hemp and are considered federally compliant with the 2018 Farm Bill. Delta 9 THC is psychoactive and is among the most potent cannabinoids according to crowd sourced information from consumers.
Full Spectrum CBD products contain all parts of the hemp plant, including up to the legal limit of <0.3% Delta 9 THC. This blend includes mainly CBD with small amounts of other cannabinoids such as CBN, CBG, as well as terpenes. It’s important to note that because Full Spectrum products contain small amounts of THC, they can make you fail a drug test.
Full Spectrum products contain so little Delta 9 THC that they aren’t intoxicating. Rather, the trace amount of THC in these kinds of products work in harmony with the other cannabinoids in what is referred to as the ‘entourage effect’.
CBN is one of the many minor cannabinoids found in the hemp plant, meaning it’s not found in abundance. In fact, it takes time and effort for CBN to form. When THC degrades with time or is oxidized, CBN is formed. This means that when THC is heated or exposed to oxygen, it is converted to CBN. Although CBN starts out as THC, it’s molecular structure changes and is no longer THC and is non-psychoactive.
CBG is a minor cannabinoid found in mature hemp plants, meaning it’s not found in abundance. It’s referred to as the “Mother of all Cannabinoids” as it is found in the early stages of the hemp plant’s maturation cycle. CBG is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid like CBD and CBN.
Hemp products such as CBD and Delta-8 may be federally legal, but they can still cause you to fail a drug test. Unfortunately, using Delta-8, and in rare cases full spectrum CBD products can all make you fail a drug test.
We recommend not using our products if you are subject to drug tests. We truly hope in the future drug testing is improved to allow them to differentiate between Cannabinoids but as of right now, they do not.
However, if you are interested in the potential benefits of CBD but are subject to drug testing, try our Original CBD, CBG, CBN gummies.
