What is CBD?
CBD is an acronym for Cannabidiol, one of the two major cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. It is a non-psychotropic phytocannabinoid found within the hemp plant. Because CBD is non-psychotropic, it is widely regarded as having the most medicinal potential among researchers. Pure Relief CBD is extracted from industrial hemp using carbon processing in order to deliver a broad spectrum CBD with less than 0.3% THC.
Is CBD Legal, and can I buy it where I live?
The Industrial hemp plants that we use are imported from Europe and are therefore legal. Because they contain less than 0.3% THC by volume, they are exempt from the Federal Controlled Substance Act prohibition on Marijuana. In the United States, CBD is is considered a dietary supplement, therefore we can ship and deliver to all 50 states in the United States.

Will CBD get me high?
No, here at Pure Relief we are proud that our products contain less than 0.3% THC content and we have been third party lab tested in order to prove so. Through our carbon processing system in our ISO 7 clean lab, we extract all possible traces of THC before creating all of our products. Since THC is where the “high” comes from, our products will not deliver that psychotropic effect.
So it won’t get me high, but will I pass a drug test?
- It is a common occurrence for most workplaces to run a drug screening and one of the biggest concerns is passing while taking CBD. Not to worry, most workplaces running drug tests are screening specifically for delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC for short, the leasing psychotropic ingredient in the Cannabis plant. Since our products are completely THC free, you should not worry.
- However, if you are in fact subjected to any form of drug testing, we at the Pure Relief family suggest speaking with your healthcare provider, employer, or drug test/screening center.
