Are your products tested?

What is CBD Isolate?
CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD, made by pulling it from its natural environment and removing it from all other ingredients. CBD Isolate is the crystalline powder form of CBD. In this form, all other plant matter—oils, waxes, chlorophyll and other cannabinoids—are removed, leaving only pure CBD.
“The advantage of using CBD isolate over other formats is the highest concentration of CBD per serving. Isolates are usually 99% pure, meaning that one gram of isolate powder carries about 990 mg of CBD. There’s no entourage effect, though — you can benefit solely from the effects of cannabidiol. Most of the Empeiría Hemp products are from CBD Isolate.
What is Full Spectrum?
The full spectrum of the active compounds extracted from hemp work together to amplify the health benefits of each individual cannabinoid. This phenomenon is referred to as the entourage effect.
Although non-psychoactive, full-spectrum CBD can give you a false positive during a drug test, especially if you consume high doses of CBD oil daily.
What is Broad Spectrum CBD?
Broad-spectrum CBD contains cannabidiol and all the other compounds within the plant, save for THC, which is completely removed after the initial extraction.
Because broad-spectrum extracts contain multiple cannabinoids, they also produce the “entourage effect,” but without the THC.
In a very simplified manner, broad-spectrum CBD is like a mix between full-spectrum CBD and CBD isolate. It contains the entire spectrum of cannabinoids EXCEPT for the THC part.
What is the “entourage effect”?
Will I pass a drug test?
Although Empeiría Hemp only uses CBD isolate, which carefully removes 99.9% of all other cannabinoids, including THC, and we are third-party tested to ensure the quality of our CBD, there is no certainty as to whether the use of any CBD product will or will not result in a positive drug test.
Read the labels: Many CBD products contain trace amounts of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), marijuana’s main active ingredient. If enough THC is present, it will show up on a drug test. This means that in rare cases, using CBD might lead to a positive drug test. It all depends on the product’s quality and composition.
Recommendation: If your job is dependent on passing drug tests, we recommend talking to your boss before taking these supplements. It is up to your judgment.
