Is CBD THC Free – What Is In CBD Oil

Good day everyone in today’s post. I hope to answer a question I get asked a lot. Is CBD THC free? Well, let me start by saying I am only talking about CBD oil made from the Hemp plant and not Marijuana in this article.


There are mainly two types of CBD oil made from hemp. One with tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and one without THC. In the following paragraphs, I will try and give you a better understanding of both types of CBD oils. To help you determine which one is right for you and your health concerns.



CBD Oil Without THC – Isolate

CBD without THC is better known as CBD Isolate. CBD isolate is essentially just cannabidiol in its purest chemical form, and it contains no additives, nor contaminants. That also means it doesn’t contain any THC or any other terpenes, flavonoids, and other cannabinoids which could be beneficial to your health.


CBD isolate consists of 99% pure CBD, in the form of fine white powder which can be mixed with Hemp oil or some other type of carrier oil to be taken sublingually. Or it can be added to other products which could be used topically such as pain creams and beauty products. There are many different ways it can be used.


I usually recommend either a 500mg or 1500mg CBD oil in isolate form to some of my clients to start with for a few different reasons.

  • They are concerned with the THC factor in full spectrum CBD oils and passing a drug test.


  • I recommend starting with a lower dosage to make sure there are no adverse effects with any medications they might be taking.


  • Or they are concerned about getting high from using a full spectrum CBD oil.


  • If they only have mild aches and pains, trouble sleeping, or minor anxiety issues.



CBD Oil With THC – Full Spectrum

CBD oil with THC is known as either full or broad spectrum. The full spectrum CBD oil made from hemp contains around .03% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) or less. But however, it also contains terpenes, flavonoids, and other cannabinoids which could be beneficial to your health.


A lot of people have fears and concerns about the THC in the full spectrum CBD oils. I get asked all the time if it will make you high. Maybe that is what they are hoping for, but the answer is no, it will not make you high. It does have a calming effect.


You could probably drink the whole bottle even though I don’t recommend you doing so and you aren’t going to get high from it. It might make you sick, though!


Another concern I hear is, can I pass a drug test taking the full spectrum CBD? Even though it shouldn’t be a problem passing a drug urine test, there are no guarantees. I guess it would depend on the type of drug test. But there are also no guarantees you will pass a drug test with regular prescription medications either.


If this is a concern of yours what I would recommend is letting your employer know you started taking CBD for whatever health reasons you might be using it for.



Is CBD Effective Without THC?

Is CBD effective without THC? The answer is yes, CBD isolate can be very useful for a lot of health reasons. I will get more in-depth on this a little later on.



Is CBD More Effective With THC?

Is CBD more effective with the THC? The truth is for some; it can be depending on what health issues you are dealing with. I am going to cover more about this in the next section on which CBD should I use.



Which CBD Should I Use Isolate Or Full Spectrum?

CBD can be used to treat a large number of medical issues, but which type should you use Isolate or full spectrum? The way I determine which one I recommend to my clients is by asking a lot of questions.


Here is a small list of reasons where I would use the CBD Isolate around 500mg. I am basing all of my examples below off of the CBD oils I use. With other CBD brands, these examples might be different.


  • Minor to slightly moderate pains
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Minor to mild anxiety issues
  • Help in supporting blood sugar issues
  • Help in lowering blood pressure issues
  • Help in supporting a healthy immune system
  • Some minor stomach issues
  • An overall sense of wellbeing
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Stress


In the following example, I will use a pain chart as the determining factor on what I would recommend. These examples are only intended as guidelines because everyone’s body is different and requires different needs.



If you fall into the ranges between 1 to 4, I would recommend a 500mg Isolate.


If you fall into the ranges between 4 to 7, I would recommend either a 1500mg Isolate or a 750mg full spectrum. And if you fall into the scales between 7 to 10, I would suggest using either a 1500mg full spectrum or the 1500mg 10x formula.


To learn more about this 10x formula, I mentioned watch the 3-minute video I posted below.


Here is a small list of reasons where I would choose a Full spectrum oil over the Isolate. Again, I am basing all of my examples below off of the CBD oils I use. And my experiences with my clients as well as my personal beliefs. With other CBD brands, these examples might be different.


  • Epilepsy and other seizure types.
  • Severe Anxiety & Depression
  • Cancer
  • Osteoporosis
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Chronic pain
  • ALS
  • Autism
  • MS
  • Traumatic Brain Injury




In closing, I would just like to say whichever CBD brand you decide to choose for yourself make sure it is of good quality. The reason I chose the CTFO brand of CBD is for two reasons. They are of good quality, and they also have a 60-day empty bottle money back guarantee if you are not satisfied.


I haven’t come across very many CBD companies who offer a money back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied. Most offer 30 days for unused products only.


I hope this article has been helpful. I would love to hear some of your thoughts and experiences with using CBD oils and how they have helped you. So please feel free to share in the comments section below.


Warmest regards!

  1. Thanks for explaining the different spectrums of CBD.  My mother is on Level 9 of pain and is on strong pain killers for stroke-induced arthritis.  She is living in sheltered accommodation for the elderly and has a carer to do her housework. 

    I have taken her to several natural therapists ranging from osteopaths to Bowen therapists.  She definitely needs CBD for the pain and to calm her nerves.  She was extremely fit before the stroke 12 years ago and doesn’t like how the stroke has slowed her pace down.

    Because of your spectrum, I can now understand the level of pain she is going through and really empathize.  You have done a great job in being thorough and made CBD much clearer for me to understand.

    Once again, thanks!

    • Hi Stella, you are quite welcome, dear. I am sorry to hear about your mom, and I hope she is recovering from the stroke. It takes a while to get over something like that. I purchase the CBD oil for my mother, who also has Arthritis, and it seems to help her quite a lot.

      I can relate with you about your mom not liking being slowed down because my mom is the same way. I would suggest you buy a bottle of CBD oil for your mother to try because it is a safer alternative to the harsh effects of pain killers.

      You can probably find some CBD oil at your local health food store. Another thing you might be able to try is Kratom; it is also suitable for pains.

      It can be tough trying to understand the level of pain someone else is experiencing.

      Thank you for the kind words, and you are very welcome. I wish the best for you and your mom.

      Warmest Wishes!

  2. Hi Dale,

    I enjoyed reading your website. You explain the whys and wherefores of CBD very well. Specifically, you lay out the difference between CBD with THC and without. This is valuable to anyone thinking of using CBD oils, especially elderly folks. You also explain 10X. My question is do you have more detail you can share about 10X? I read another website and gave comments earlier from a person who led with the history and possible future of CTFO. I also though your list of pictures and pricing of the three different types of CBD oils was invaluable for comparison shopping.

    I had purchased CBD oil from a website recently but I was disappointed with their seemingly misleading “Trial” bottle. After I purchased I was billed for another month’s supply. No mention was made of the auto-ship program and its cost. Does CTFO take the same approach?  As to the CBD oil itself, I found it to be very effective, especially with stress. I teach high school in an alternative school( World History, American Government, U.S. History, and Economics) and need as much patience as I can get. CBD did wonders for my tolerance of yelling, screaming, cussing and fighting. Consequently, I believe in CBD and your content made me all the more convinced of its efficacy.

    • Hi Ronald, thank you very much. Ronald, the 3-minute video I posted at the bottom of the post, explains the 10X pure CBD oil. I am sorry to hear about the misleading “Trial” bottle you purchased elsewhere.

      CTFO does offer an auto-ship program which can save you an additional 5%, but you are not obligated to sign-up for it unless you want too. And if you do sign-up for the auto-ship, you can cancel it at any time or switch it to a different product.

      I am happy to hear that at least the CBD oil was helpful to you with the stress. I can only imagine that teaching would be a stressful job. I don’t think I could have ever been a school teacher. I barely had enough patience with my two boys growing up sometimes. I could have used some CBD myself back then. LOL

      Warmest Regards

  3. Hi Dale,

    I am not very familiar with CBD oil, but I have heard of it. It seems to be used for lots of different things. Would CBD oil be good for recovering from a workout? Also, how do you actually take it, do you just drink it? If so what does it taste like. Sorry if these seem like silly questions, but I know nothing.

    • Hi Tom, CBD is getting more popular all the time and for good reasons. Yes, CBD would help after a good workout to relax your stiff and aching muscles.

      Tom, I wrote another post about how to use CBD, and I will post the link here for you. https://prosperingwithcbd.com/

      As far as the taste goes, I can only speak about the CTFO brand in which I use. It has a peppermint flavor to it, so it isn’t bad unless you dis-like peppermint.

      Tom, there is no such thing as a silly question. The only thing that would be silly would be not asking questions in the first place.

      Best Wishes!

  4. I didn’t realize that there were 2 types of oils. You see the ads everywhere offering CBD oil for pain and didn’t know you could take for sleep disorders. I have tried many natural and prescription sleep products without much luck. How long does the oil take to work after you take it? 

    • Hi Rowena, yes there are basically two types made from hemp. With or without THC. I personally use CBD Isolate oil without the THC. The oil works pretty well for helping you get a good nights sleep. CTFO also has a sleep spray that works well.

      For either one of them, I would take it about fifteen to twenty minutes before you get ready for bed. By that time, you will usually fall asleep pretty quickly.

      Best wishes!

  5. Hi Dale Odom,

    Are CTFO actually manufacturers or are they a wholesalers? Thanks in advance, hoping to hear from you…just doing my research here and not wanting to confront anybody. Tough crowd on here! Lol…

    And please, The CTFO compensation plan outlines the ways associates can earn money within the business opportunity, and how much?

    Best regards


    • Hi Bibian, thanks for stopping by.

      CTFO actually sell wholesale. Doing your own, research is always the best way of doing things. I am an easy going person with thick skin, so don’t worry about hurting my feelings. I prefer people to be honest and say what they think. No tough crowd here! LOL.

      Yes CTFO does offer a 100% free business opportunity. Bibian how much you can earn really depends on you. There are a few people above me who are now making around 10,000 a week. I haven’t reached that point yet, but I am getting paid every week.

      The biggest thing a person needs to understand with a network marketing company is the only way you earn money is if people are purchasing the products from you. So, in other words, you could go out and signup 2,000 people but if none of them are buying products you don’t make any money.

      I focus all of my attention on getting customers instead of signing people up into my business opportunity. Because the customers are buying the products every month, therefore, I am earning money every week. It may take me a while longer to build my business this way, but my payday continues to get bigger each week.

      So the truth of the matter is how much you can earn, depends on your efforts. I am making almost as much money a week as the person I signed up under, and she has nearly two hundred more people in her business than I do. But I focus on customers, whereas she is focused, on building a large team.

      I hope this answers your questions.

      Warmest wishes!

  6. I have heard some hype around CBD oil, and this article certainly franks what I had previously heard on this topic.

    The first bottle money back guarantee does provide some surety as if you have gone through a whole bottle and achieved no result or no improvement, then I think that is a reasonable test run.

    Depending upon your work or employment type, the ‘drug’ test query is relevant too, as a lot of factory or warehouse workers in particular could be impacted by this.

  7. My son uses 1000 mg for his OCD anxiety and he says it helps “some”.  But the expense is high for him, so I don’t know what else he can do.  I told him to use more drops, but then his expense really goes up.  Would going to 1500mg be the answer to help him?  He has OCD really pretty bad and gets anxiety over a LOT of things.  It has to do with smells, feel, tough and then of course everything being in “alignment” or even.  Ugh

    • Hi, Matt’s mom, I guess I would ask you. How much is he paying for a 1000mg bottle, and what size is the bottle? Is it 30ml? Is he using a full spectrum or an Isolate?

      CTFO has a1500mg in isolate or full spectrum both for the same price of $94.97 each. They also have the 10Xpure formula at 500mg or 1500mg, but they both are a lot stronger so you wouldn’t have to take as much. The 10Xpure 500mg is $94.97, and the 1500 10Xpure is $151.97.

      All of CTFO’s products come with a 60-day empty bottle money back guarantee if not completely satisfied.

      I hope this helps, and if you have any further questions, I am always happy to help.

      Warmest regards!

  8. I’ve been interested in getting my roommate to try CBD oil for anxiety relief. He is concerned though about testing positive for THC due to that he is a commercial truck driver. Is the isolate less likely to cause a positive drug test result? And, is the isolate effective for treating anxiety and nervousness? He also has back pain, which has been keeping him out of the driver’s seat lately. Thanks.

    • Hi Elaine, one of my customers who also is a truck driver and has arthritis, and that was one of his biggest concerns about using CBD. I recommended for him to use the isolate form without any THC.

      He is entirely off all pain meds now and is doing great.

      No CBD company by law can guarantee that you will pass a drug test while using either the full spectrum or isolate. It would probably depend upon the drug screening being done. But the same goes for prescription drugs as well.

      But using the isolate is less likely to cause a positive drug test result. Yes, the isolate should work well for the anxiety, nervousness, and help with the back pain.

      Best wishes!

  9. Hi Dale.

    Paul Mindra here from Southern Ontario, Canada.

    Your post topic is one that is becoming more and more popular as people look for alternatives to the traditional medical practices available up to date which are prescribed and not necessarily of choice.

    Unfortunately I have no clinical experience in the world of CBD, Hemp, Marijuanna, etc…except that I smoked ‘weed’ and ‘hash oil’ in the late seventies and early eighties. Back then it was for ‘Recreation’ and ‘Party’ purposes only ( for me anyway).

    Marijuanna has now been legalized in Canada but I have not visited a retail outlet as of yet. 

    After many years of suffering from Psoriatic Arthritis, I was finally accepted to receive a biologic (Cosentyx) for it’s treatment. 

    It has proven to work wonders for me.

    There is the occasional flareup that becomes ‘crippling’ for a few days, but for the most part, life is getting back to normal (if you can call it that).

    My first question to you, Dale, is…would taking CBD or smoking cannabis interfere with the biologic that I am taking, or do you think that it would actually complement it more? The reason I ask is because when there is a ‘flareup’ I have an emergency relief of Prednisone. Prednisone is great….but then again….

    I’m not seeking medical advice and fully understand that you cannot give it.

    I’m merely looking for some insight from you because what I have found on your site so far, I believe can be of great value to many people (it has been to me) and it is delivered by someone that objectively displays his knowledge. The subject matter is served up objectively. 

    On another note…I have done some MLM and Network Marketing in the past and would be interested in learning more. Can you please offer some further direction on how you are approaching this? 

    Kindest regards from Canada,

    Paul Mindra.

    • Hi Paul, It is a pleasure to meet you. How is everything going for you in Canada?

      Yes CBD is only going to continue to get more prominent over the next several years. It is a much safer alternative to taking NSAIDS for pain relief. Pain killers are harsh on the liver and also the stomach lining.

      I think most people have smoked a little weed in their younger wilder days. Marijuana is not yet legal in the state I live in as of yet, but I think it is only a matter of time before it becomes legal in all states.

      I am happy to hear the Cosentyx has been working wonders for your Arthritis pains. I know that it is an immunosuppressant and a pricey drug so I don’t blame you for looking for a cheaper alternative.

      As you stated, I can not give you any medical advice, but I would love to see you get off both of those drugs. I know that Prednisone is a corticosteroid, and can cause some nasty side-effects. And it also suppresses the immune system.

      I can not say taking CBD or smoking Marijuana will interfere or not with taking these drugs. But what I would suggest for you to try is CTFO’s 10XPure because it has a lot more CBDA in it than regular CBD oils. CBDA works even better on inflammation than the other CBD oils do. I would start off slow by taking 5 or 6 drops to make sure it doesn’t interfere with the other medications. And hopefully, you could get off of the other two drugs.

      If you would like to learn more about the 10XPure watch the 3-minute video explaining it on my homepage. https://prosperingwithcbd.com/

      Paul, I am very knowledgeable about health. I have been working with people for nearly 20 years with their health issues using natural alternatives. I mostly work with people who have Cancer or Diabetes the most though. You can check out my health page on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/livin

      One other thing you might try Paul is the Budwig protocol. Not only is it good for Cancer but also Arthritis. Here is a link to the Protocol. https://healthwyze.org/reports/190-the-true-budwig-protocol?

      I hope you find some of this useful.

      Paul the way I am approaching CTFO is I purchase a product each month, and I give it to someone whom I think will benefit from using it. Not always but I would say 8 out of 10 times when they run out they contact me wanting more. Only then is when I give them the link to my CTFO website so that they can purchase whatever they wish.

      Of course, I also have my Prospering with CBD website where I try to educate people about CBD. I share my posts on Social media sites. I never try to convince anyone to join my business opportunity. I just share about the products, and then if they do want to join, I will help guide and support them in their business.

      I have a four-inch button I wear when I go to town shopping which reads. Are you or anyone you know in pain? Ask me about CBD. You would not believe how many people approach me and ask. They tell me all of their health problems.

      I mostly focus my attention on customers because I learned a long time ago it doesn’t matter how many people join your business opportunity if no one is purchasing products then you are not going to make any money.

      I also have articles on my website explaining how to generate leads for your CBD business and how to launch your business the right way. It is under the menu CBD for wealth category on my site.

      I hope this answers some of your questions.

      Warmest Wishes, Paul!

  10. All my thoughts were that heavy drinking of CBD with THC can make people high. Had it been like that, CBD from hemp or marijuana might be abused by many people who do not want to derive anything from it than to get high. Thanks for the clarification. If CBD without THC is more effective in killing pain, I would love to go for it compared to the one with THC. Which factor can we use to identify individual CBD? 

    • Hi Stella, A lot of people have that same misconception about the THC in CBD oil getting them high. I agree with you in saying that if it did, people would abuse it only to get high. 

      Stella, I wouldn’t say that CBD without the THC is more effective in killing pain, especially if you suffer from chronic pains. If you have mild to moderate pains, I would choose the Isolate without THC. But if you suffer from severe or chronic pain and inflammation, I would choose a full-spectrum CBD oil with THC.

      There are several factors I would look for when choosing a CBD oil or company. Here are a few things I would look for in my decision making.

      3rd party lab testing.GMP Certified.Where is the oil made.Pesticide-free.Does the company stand behind its products?

      Warmest wishes!

  11. Yes, I’m a Believer!!! I have a close friend who always has had issues with sleeping for the last seven years. She told me she was going to order some CBD oil from CTFO to try to see if it will help. I saw her about a month and a half later, and she looked great. I mean, her face and eyes were more vibrant. She just looked happier. I asked her what had she been doing to get such a visible lift in mood and attitude. She said there was nothing different she was doing except using the CBD oil by CTFO. I was sold right then and there and have just ordered the 10x Pure Gold. I will post more about my results soon.

    • Hi Alicia, thanks for stopping by. I hear testimonials from my customers all the time about how CBD has helped them with some of their health issues. It truly amazes me.

      I look forward to hearing about your results.

      Warmest wishes!
      Sincerely Dale @ Prospering With CBD

  12. Personally, in my case, I think I would just try the CBD isolate (most employers can drug test anyone for THC if there is any type of concern). I don’t judge though, if you are the type of person to use CBD w/THC, that’s fine, I just say be careful. But I do think CDB isolate is still beneficial even if these benefits aren’t at such a great extent compared to CBD w/THC. I know I’ve used it here and there and it definitely helps with my chronic headaches and anxiety a bit. Thanks for sharing!

    • Hi Jeremy,

      Most CBD oils you will probably pass a drug test even if it does contain trace amounts of THC, but I wouldn’t risk it either. If I were going to use an oil with THC, I would tell my employer about it to be on the safe side.

      The CBD isolate works well for a lot of people, and it is usually what I recommend trying out first. The only time I recommend CBD w/THC is if the isolate isn’t working well enough for their issues.

      I am glad to hear that the CBD isolate has helped you with chronic headaches and anxieties somewhat.

      You are welcome, Jeremy

      Thanks for stopping by.

      Best Wishes!
