What’s the deal with CBD? We’ve compiled some information to help you break it down.
So, what exactly is CBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is a naturally occurring compound found in the cannabis plant. CBD is one of more than a hundred phytocannabinoids in the cannabis plant. Unlike the phytocannabinoid THC, CBD does not have psychoactive effects.
That begs the question, what is THC?
THC is a compound in the cannabis plant responsible for the psychoactive effects. This is the compound that is associated with the “high” feeling.
Where does Marijuana fit into all of this?
It doesn’t…marijuana is a drug containing more than 0.3% THC that gives a “high” feeling while hemp extract contains a low level of THC and without the high.
Is CBD from hemp the same as Hemp Seed Oil?
No, they are not the same thing. CBD is extracted from the whole hemp plant whereas (and as the name indicates) Hemp seed oil is produced by the seeds of the hemp plant.
The big question - Is CBD Legal?
Well...this is where it gets a little tricky. When sourced from the hemp plant, which contains less than 0.3% THC, CBD is legal under federal law. However, states have their own laws, so some states may still consider CBD illegal. So, the answer ultimately depends on in which state you are located.
Is CBD legal in my state?
As we stated above, laws vary between states regarding CBD and hemp, so we recommend that you confirm the laws in your state. Keep reading to find out what states our vitafusion lineup will be available.
Is it cool to travel with?
Again, laws vary between states and countries regarding CBD and hemp, so we recommend that you confirm the laws in your state and your destination (along with any place you travel through) before taking your beloved vitafusion CBD Full Spectrum Hemp Extract gummies with you. Also, don’t forget to check with TSA before boarding the plane.
There are so many products with different strengths of CBD. What strength of CBD should I take?
There’s no one-size-fits-all answer. That’s why we’ve created products that start out at a lower naturally occurring amount, so you can start low and test out what works best for you. Also, be sure to check with your doctor. And don’t forget to look at the “suggested use” statement on the label to make sure you aren’t taking any more than what’s stated there. But if you’re pregnant, nursing or under 18 you should not be using these products.
Full Spectrum Hemp Extract vs. CBD Isolate…what’s the difference?
CBD isolate is highly purified and chemically isolated from the other components of the cannabis plant. Unlike CBD isolate, Full Spectrum Hemp Extract contains an array of goodies from the hemp plant like natural cannabinoids and terpenes.
Now what’s the difference between Full Spectrum Hemp Extract and Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract?
You can’t find these definitions in a dictionary but in the industry full spectrum indicates the presence of THC – don’t worry, it’s below the 0.3% limit and does not give you a “high feeling.”– while broad spectrum does not have any THC.
What’s in our vitafusion lineup?
Our lineup uses full spectrum hemp extract that has trace levels of THC and naturally occurring CBD along with other phytocannabinoids.
Do vitafusion CBD Full Spectrum Hemp products contain THC?
Our gummies are made with Full Spectrum Hemp Extract which contains trace levels THC. The amount of THC in the extract is below the legal limit of 0.3% and does not give you a “high feeling.”

Will CBD Get Me High… and will I fail my drug test?
Nope, CBD does NOT have psychoactive effects to give you that “high” feeling. It is unlikely that when the gummies are consumed as directed and in isolation of other THC-containing products that a positive test would occur but the sensitivity of tests can differ between labs.
What should I take CBD for?
