Does CBD Contain THC?

CBD and THC are two different cannabinoids, which means CBD can’t contain THC. However, full-spectrum CBD products may contain trace amounts of THC (less than 0.3%). Some CBD products—such as isolates and distillates—will not contain THC because they’re specifically formulated to remove cannabinoids that are not CBD.

Most CBD products are made using hemp, which has a generally low THC concentration by nature. In fact, to be marketed as a hemp product, CBD products must contain less than 0.3% of the psychoactive substance. As a result, even full-spectrum CBD products will not get you high.

If you’re looking for a CBD product that offers compounding benefits through the “entourage effect,” you’ll likely want a full-spectrum product that contains trace amounts of THC (less than 0.3%). For individuals who do not want any whatsoever, isolate or distillate products will be totally free of this cannabinoid.

Consult with the labeling of a CBD product to determine if it’s an isolate, distillate or full-spectrum. Many companies will also list lab results for their products online, which will include THC values.
