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. Some research has shown that CBD actually has the potential to prevent THC from binding to receptors in the brain.
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. Dark Sky CBD works by binding to the cannabinoid receptors found in this system. These receptors have been found in almost every cell and tissue type throughout the human body. Our research shows that the human body may have evolved with CBD or hemp being a staple part of our diets throughout the course of history. Hence the seemingly endless possible positive benefits of taking Dark Sky CBD on a regular basis.
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.
Although incredibly unlikely, it could happen. It really depends on the amount you are consuming, the quality of the product and the THC content. To be classed as a CBD product, a product must contain less than 0.3% THC. CBD isolate products should contain 0% THC, but once again we come back to purchasing quality products from trusted manufacturers that do in fact test their products correctly. A recent study has shown that people who consume 6mg of THC per day have a 25% chance of failing a drug test. This equates to about 2000mg of CBD per day with a THC content of 0.3% CBD. To put that into perspective, the recommended daily intake of Dark Sky CBD is between 25mg-50mg, so you would really have to be using a huge amount of Dark Sky CBD to fail a drug test.
In saying all of this, we still believe that the “better safe than sorry” mentality should be applied when purchasing Dark Sky CBD products. If you are unsure, it may be worth speaking to your HR or someone in your job that could better answer this question.
One of the best things that Dark Sky CBD has going for it is the constant innovation. There are so many different ways to consume Dark Sky CBD, it’s really more of a question of “Which way do you feel most comfortable getting your daily dosage?”.
Here’s a small breakdown of the different ways of taking CBD;
- Vaping/smoking – Fast acting, short lasting.
- Topicals/creams- Fast acting, short lasting, target specific areas.
- Edibles – Takes about 40 minutes to an hour to act, longer lasting.
Yes. Dark Sky CBD is as natural as it comes. It comes directly from our grow room. If you want a truly natural experience, try some Dark Sky CBD hemp flower or order a few pre-rolls if you don’t want to roll your own.
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.
The answer to this question is tricky. On one hand, according to the FDA no health claims are allowed for CBD products. On the other hand, there is in fact one FDA approved CBD product on the market called Epidiolex; which is used to treat seizures associated with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome or Dravet syndrome in patients 2 years of age and older.
We can only tell you that Dark Sky CBD works differently for everyone. The only real way to find out of Dark Sky CBD could benefit you is to give it a try yourself.
The amount of Dark Sky CBD you should take a day really depends on what you are trying to achieve. The recommended daily dosage for someone starting a CBD regiment is between 25mg-50mg a day. There are lot’s of varying factors to take into consideration; Weight, Sex, tolerance etc.

THC-o is one of the many minor cannabinoids found in the hemp plant, meaning it’s not found in abundance. It’s molecular structure is very similar to that of Delta 9 THC, the popular primary cannabinoid that is psychoactive. Because of the similarities, THC-o is also psychoactive. However, the subtle differences between the two cannabinoids create a different experience for the consumer.
This cannabinoid may be minor, but it is mighty. Consumers claim it to be more potent than Delta 8 or Delta 9 THC and are referring to it as the ‘spiritual cannabinoid’. Consumers report a euphoric, giddy, and spiritual experience with a sedating body high.
Hexahydrocannabinol, HHC for short, is a natural cannabinoid of the hemp plant. It’s said to be at least as potent as Delta 8 THC, a psychoactive cannabinoid like Delt 9 THC. Although HHC and THC have different molecular structures, they create similar effects.
Consumers report HHC’s effects to be in between Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC without the negatives such as paranoia and heightened anxiety. HHC is great for those looking for an energetic and euphoric uplift without the negative side effects or potency of Delta 9 THC.
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.
Consumers report the lesser potency of Delta 8 to be more enjoyable while still experiencing a relaxing, euphoric feeling without the grogginess or spaced-out feelings accompanied by consuming 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 (Delta 9 THC and all) 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, runner up to THC-o, according to crowd sourced information from consumers.
Delta 9 THC offers a euphoric, body sedating feeling.
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.
CBN is reported to have a stronger feeling of sedation to that of CBD and is very commonly taken at night time before bed.
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.
CBG has also been reported to provide feelings of energy and enhanced focus, making it a great choice for those who are physically active or are looking for an uplifting energy boost.
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, Delta-10, HHC, THC-0 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.
