Never has there been a plant surrounded by as much controversy as Cannabis sativa. Years of prohibition and a ton of false information have led to many untruths about both hemp and marijuana. As wildly beneficial as CBD is, there are still some falsehoods circulating about the popular cannabinoid.
We’re here to clear up some of the confusion surrounding CBD. Separate myth from fact, so to speak. Let’s take a look at some of the myths surrounding CBD so you can have a better understanding of this beneficial cannabinoid once and for all.
Top 5 Myths About CBD
1. CBD Gets You High
Because CBD is sourced from cannabis, it’s often assumed that it produces a psychoactive effect when consumed. There’s a big difference between CBD and THC, however. Check it out.
While both CBD and THC are sourced from the cannabis plant, CBD is typically derived from hemp, and THC is derived from marijuana. Both hemp and marijuana are different types of cannabis, but both do not produce the psychoactive effects that are commonly associated with cannabis.
Why not, though?
It all comes down to the way each cannabinoid interacts with the body. The reason THC gets you “high” is that it binds to the CB1 cannabinoid receptors, which is found in abundance in the several brain regions and in lower amounts in widespread areas throughout the body. CB1 receptors mediate many of the psychoactive effects of specific cannabinoids.
CBD, however, is different. Yes, it’s an active cannabinoid found in cannabis. But unlike THC, it has little binding affinity to the CB1 receptor. Basically, CBD doesn’t get you high because it doesn’t bind to the receptor responsible for making you high.
2. There Isn’t Enough Scientific Evidence to Support CBD
When CBD was initially found to reduce seizures in rare forms of childhood epilepsy, there was little to no scientific evidence to back it up. As more and more discovered the therapeutic benefits of the non-psychoactive cannabinoid, however, research ensued in earnest.
Today, there are more studies than ever before that support the myriad of benefits CBD contains.
The most widely studied area of the effects of CBD is likely its ability to reduce seizures associated with intractable childhood and adolescent epilepsy. Since 2013, there have been 10 epilepsy centers in America that have conducted research regarding the effectiveness of CBD to treat epilepsy. In 2018, a synthetic version of CBD known as Epidiolex was approved by the government for the treatment of seizures for those suffering from seizures associated with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome, two rare and intractable forms of epilepsy.
In a 2018 study of CBD users, it was determined that consumers are using CBD as a specific therapy for “multiple diverse medical conditions.” Particularly, these include pain, anxiety, depression and sleep problems.
Is there evidence to back this up, though? Following are a few studies that support the reported benefits of cannabidiol.
- A 2015 study found that “existing preclinical evidence strongly supports CBD as a treatment for generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder when administered acutely.”
- Another 2015 study showed that “topical CBD application has therapeutic potential for relief of arthritis pain-related behaviors and inflammation without evident side effects.”
- A 2014 study found that CBD reduces paclitaxel-induced neuropathy, a potentially serious complication that can prevent patients from receiving their full chemotherapy treatment. Paclitaxel can cause nerve damage that results in symptoms such as pain, tingling and numbness.
While more research and clinical studies are undoubtedly needed, there is already quite a bit of scientific evidence to support some of the reported benefits of CBD. With the recent passing of the 2018 Farm Bill that ultimately legalized hemp and hemp-derived products (such as CBD), more research into the benefits of CBD will undoubtedly occur.
3. CBD Won’t Show Up in a Drug Test
Like we mentioned earlier, there is a ton of misinformation circulating about CBD. One myth we’d like to dispel once and for all is that CBD won’t show up in a drug test.
Anyone who is interested in taking CBD should be aware that many CBD products made from hemp contain trace amounts of THC (less than 0.3%) that could, although it’s unlikely, show up in a urinalysis. This would most likely occur when taking a very large amount of “full spectrum” CBD products, as they are made from the whole plant and contain trace amounts of various cannabinoids, including THC. Of course, CBD extracted from the marijuana plant will be much more likely to contain larger amounts of THC.
This has led to the creation of CBD isolate, a product where all traces of THC have been removed through an additional purification process.
At Joy Organics, we believe everyone should be able to enjoy CBD without worrying about trace amounts of THC showing up in a drug test. This is why our proprietary extraction and purification process removes all traces of THC, while maintaining the preservation of the beneficial terpenes, flavonoids and other phytocannabinoids that work in harmony to create what is known as the entourage effect. This way, we can offer a full spectrum oil, completely free of THC.
Are you someone regularly drug tested for work or any other reason? If so, keep in mind that some CBD products could test positive for THC. To avoid this, be sure you’re using a product created with CBD isolate or a full spectrum product where all THC has been removed.
4. Taking More CBD is Better to Achieve Desired Effects
There are plenty of situations where bigger is better. Taking CBD, however, isn’t one of them. There’s a common assumption that taking a bigger serving of CBD is best to achieve the desired effects.
When it comes to taking CBD, everyone is different. CBD works for you individually to restore balance to whatever imbalance you’re experiencing. Finding what serving size works best for you should be done by taking smaller amounts of CBD until you find exactly how much to take.
Here’s the thing. There’s no “magic” serving size of CBD that works for everyone. There are several factors that will determine how much CBD you should take, including age, sex, weight and why exactly you’re taking it.
The idea that “more is better,” however, is just one of the many myths that surround CBD.
5. All CBD is Created Equal
CBD is CBD, no matter where it comes from, right? Wrong.
Not all CBD is created equal. And if you’re someone interested in using CBD, this is something vital to understand. Up until now, CBD has been a completely unregulated industry. This means that anyone can sell CBD oil and say it’s the best, when it’s really anything but.
Here’s something else. Hemp is one of several plants that employs a technique known as phytoremediation. This means that it absorbs whatever is present in the soil it’s planted in, including toxins, contaminants and the like. Hemp is so adept at phytoremediation that it has been planted at the Chernobyl nuclear disaster site to absorb radioactive waste from the soil.
When purchasing CBD products, it’s vital that the hemp used to produce the oil is grown in nutrient-rich, organic soil. It’s also important to ensure that any products you buy have been third-party tested for quality. When it comes to CBD, not all products are created equal. This is an industry where transparency is everything. The companies who claim to have the highest quality products will have the lab results to prove it.
Dispelling the Most Common Myths About CBD
We believe everyone should have the correct information when it comes to CBD. If you’ve had any doubt regarding the truth about this wildly popular and extremely beneficial cannabinoid, we hope that this article helped clear up any confusion.
At Joy Organics, we’re not only here to offer some of the highest-quality CBD products you can find. We’re here to inspire, educate and inform the public about cannabidiol. Knowledge is power. When equipped with the right information, you can make an informed decision on purchasing the best CBD products to fit your needs.
Dear Joy Organics Customers,
We have become aware by a third-party lab test that Imazalil, a fungicide commonly used on citrus fruits, was found in one of our orange tinctures.
In response, we sent products from the same batch to two other ISO certified third-party labs; one lab’s test came back positive for Imazalil while the other came back as ND (Non Detectable).
We want to be extremely cautious and recall our Orange Bliss tincture that was purchased in the month of December, 2018. If you have a tincture from this batch, we request that you discard any remaining product. We will be sending everyone a full replacement with our new formula this Tuesday, January 22nd.
While Imazalil is commonly found on oranges, it’s important to me that our products are 100% fungicide free. The amount of Imazalil found in our product was 87 parts per billion (PPB). The EPA deems anything above 1750.0 as being a “Chronic RfD (reference dose per day)” for an adult male weighing 154 lbs. Therefore, you would need to drink 20 bottles of our Orange Bliss every day to be at the EPAs chronic RfD level. You can learn more here: http://whatsonmyfood.org/level.jsp?food=OG&pesticide=604
The tincture that was tested contained an older formula produced in a small batch. The formula we have been selling for the last few weeks is a new formula using certified organic essential oil.
We have taken this as an opportunity to establish a new industry standard of testing. Here’s our plan going forward:
- Post the internal lab report of the raw PCR hemp oil used in our products. (We have been providing these reports on our website since we started Joy Organics, you can find them here: https://joyorganics.com/lab-results/)
- Post the internal lab report of the finished product. (We have been providing these reports on our website since we started Joy Organics)
- Post the 3rd party lab report on every batch of raw PCR hemp oil used in our products.
- Post the 3rd party lab report of individual ingredients
- Post the 3rd party lab report on all our completed products.
- All of our tinctures, vapes and salves will be made with organically grown ingredients to ensure they are the healthiest and safest products in the industry.
- Within the next 60-90 days, all of our labels will have a QR code that customers can scan on their smartphones and gain instant access to all the lab reports listed above.
My goal when starting this company was to be set apart from the rest of the CBD industry in terms of both quality and transparency. While I’m disheartened to learn that a batch of our product slipped below my standard, I am eager to use this as an opportunity to raise our own bar for testing standards.
If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to email us at [email protected]
Thank you for your understanding as we constantly work on improving our processes and products.

Interested in making the most out of your CBD capsules, softgels or supplements?
MCT oil could be just what you’re looking for. As you’re probably well aware, there are several ways to take CBD. You might also be aware that the method of ingestion you use can determine how much CBD the body actually uses, as well as how quickly you feel the effects.
Are you someone that prefers taking your CBD in the form of a supplement? Why wouldn’t you? CBD softgels, capsules and supplements provide an easy, familiar way to take CBD while getting a precise serving size each and every time.
The role MCT oils play in CBD products is pretty significant, especially if you prefer CBD supplements over other methods of delivery. MCT oils work to increase the benefits of CBD by increasing CBD’s bioavailability and allowing more CBD to reach the bloodstream much more rapidly than it would otherwise.
Let’s take a deeper look.
What Is MCT Oil?
Before we get too deep into the role MCT oils play in CBD products, it’s important to have a good understanding of exactly what MCT oils are.
MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) oil is made up of one or more MCTs, which are a type of saturated fatty acids that contain 6-10 carbons. As its name indicates, MCT oil contains medium-length chains of saturated fatty acids known as triglycerides.
Interest in MCT oils amongst health-conscious individuals has skyrocketed in recent years, as they are easily digestible. The way the body processes these fats is also linked to several health benefits.
Coconut oil is the most abundant source of MCTs. More than half of the fat found in coconut oil is from MCTs. Palm oil is another good source of MCTs. Other oils that contain MCTs include olive, sesame, soybean and avocado.
The Benefits of MCT Oil
Aside from its use with CBD products, MCT oil is often used as a supplement on its own that is added to salad dressings, smoothies and bullet-proof coffee recipes. Why are people adding MCT to their diets for ultimate health and wellness? Check out the science-based benefits of MCT oil for yourself:
What Is the Role of MCT Oil in CBD Products?
Of the many ways to take CBD, ingesting it in the form of softgels or tablets is extremely popular. While not everyone is familiar with taking a sublingual tincture, almost everyone has taken a supplement or pill at some point in their life.
While popping a CBD supplement is a familiar and easy method of delivery, ingesting CBD this way is known to have a slower delivery method than other methods of ingestion. This is because, when CBD is taken in the form of an oral capsule, it must first pass through the digestive tract and liver before reaching the bloodstream.
Not only can this take longer for CBD to work, but some CBD can become lost in the digestive process. Think of it like this. When you take an oral supplement, the active ingredients contained in that supplement are absorbed within the digestive system. Compounds are broken down in the stomach, then absorbed by the small intestine before making their way to the liver.
It’s in the liver that you can lose CBD. First pass metabolism is a process where CBD is broken down into more than 100 various metabolites, a lot of which aren’t used by the body and are instead quickly expelled. This process decreases the amount of CBD, thus reducing its bioavailability. In fact, a 2009 study found that oral consumption of CBD has a bioavailability of 4–20%. Basically, this means that if you take a 100mg capsule of CBD, only 4–20mg will actually reach the bloodstream.
Here is where MCT oil steps in. MCT oil acts as a carrier for CBD so more of the beneficial cannabinoid ends up reaching the bloodstream. Blending CBD and MCT oil is done specifically to increase the bioavailability of CBD. How exactly does this work?
MCT works to help CBD to completely avoid the first pass metabolism process. This allows more CBD to reach the bloodstream. Because CBD and other cannabinoids are fat soluble, they are most effective when taken with saturated fats, such as MCT oils.
Simply put, the role of MCT oil in CBD products is to allow a larger concentration of the CBD in your supplement to be absorbed into the bloodstream and begin acting quickly.
Adding MCT Oil to Your CBD Supplement Routine
Could using MCT oil help you get the most out of your CBD routine?
It all depends on how you like to take your CBD. Depending on your preferred method of delivery, MCT oil can help you achieve the effects of CBD more quickly AND get more CBD into your bloodstream.
If taking a CBD tincture or vaping CBD is more your thing, you’re already receiving the quickest delivery methods there are. When you take a CBD tincture, CBD is absorbed through the mucous membranes in your mouth and then moves directly into the bloodstream. When you vape CBD, the cannabinoid is absorbed by the lungs before moving directly into the bloodstream, offering an almost instantaneous effect. No MCT oil needed.
If, on the other hand, you prefer to take your CBD oil in the form of a softgels or capsules, MCT oil could be of serious benefit to you, especially if you want to get the most you can out of the beneficial cannabinoid. The Joy Organics softgels contain MCT oil for this very reason.
Final Thoughts on MCT Oils and CBD
We all know that CBD is wildly beneficial and most of us want to get the most out of this beneficial cannabinoid that we can. MCT oils help us do just that. Not only do MCT oils help increase the bioavailability of CBD allowing for quicker delivery and more CBD absorption, but they also happen to be really, really good for your health.

With the rising popularity of CBD everything, CBD isolates are something you might have heard about. If you’re wondering what CBD isolate is, we’ve got you covered.
We’re well-aware that CBD isolate looks nothing like other CBD products you might be used to. Here’s the thing, though — this crystalline, powder form of CBD is the purest form of CBD available. Some of the highest-quality CBD isolates are 99% pure CBD.
So, what is CBD isolate exactly? How does it differ from other CBD products? Why should you care? And how exactly do you use CBD isolate? Let’s take a look.
What Is CBD Isolate?
Isolate is defined as: “a person or thing that has been or become isolated.”
CBD isolate is just what it sounds like. CBD that has been isolated from all other compounds in the cannabis plant.
CBD isolate is pure, isolated CBD. Put simply, CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD you can get.
CBD isolate is a crystalline powder that is 99% pure CBD. CBD isolate is sourced from hemp, but all matter from the hemp plant is removed. This includes waxes, oils, other phytocannabinoids (such as THC), chlorophyll and more. What’s left is a pure, crystalline powder.
How Is CBD Isolate Made?
To get CBD out of hemp it must go through an extraction process. CBD extraction methods have come a long way in the past few years, with state-of-the-art extraction methods now mainstream in a market that’s become one of the most popular that exists.
In order to make CBD isolate, it must go through a more complex extraction process once initial extraction has taken place. After regular extraction, several compounds of the hemp plant remain in the extracted oil, with the final product typically referred to as “full spectrum” CBD oil as it contains all the other cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids found in the hemp plant.
To produce the purest form of CBD oil (aka CBD isolate), additional processing must take place that removes any residual plant material and unwanted compounds. After the initial extraction process, the extracted full spectrum oil goes through a second purification process where any remaining plant material is filtered out of the oil.
Following this filtration process, the extracted oil goes through a process known as “winterization.” Basically, winterization is an alcohol wash that involves soaking the CBD extract in alcohol and freezing it. This process helps to separate pure CBD from all the other residual products that remain in the oil.
Following winterization, several rounds of rotary evaporation ensue to remove any remaining residual material still present in the extracted, winterized oil. This extract is then decarboxylated and converted into a crystalline, powder form using a propriety processing technique.
The result? Pure, crystalized CBD.
CBD Isolate Contains NO THC
One of the major reasons CBD isolate has become so popular is that it contains ZERO THC. While many people are under the assumption that CBD doesn’t contain any THC, there are still some trace amounts in many full spectrum CBD products, which can be sold legally as long as there is less than 0.3% THC. While this small amount of THC isn’t enough to cause a psychoactive effect, it has a slight potential to show up in a person’s system.
CBD isolate is a great choice for anyone sensitive to even trace amounts of THC, as well as anyone who could benefit from CBD but otherwise can’t ingest THC for any reason. Police officers, teachers, medical professionals, emergency first responders or anyone else who cannot afford to have THC show up in a drug test can benefit from using CBD isolate.
Everything You Need to Know About Using CBD Isolate
Now that you know just what CBD isolate is and how it’s made, you can decide if this particular form of CBD might be right for your personal needs.
Don’t let its powder form fool you! Even though CBD isolate looks nothing like other forms of CBD, it is an extremely safe way to use CBD.
CBD isolate is easy to use and one of the most versatile forms of CBD you can find. Interested in how to use it? Look no further. Following are 7 easy (and fun) ways to use CBD isolate and benefit from cannabidiol in its purest form.
7 Ways to Use CBD Isolate
- Place it Right Under Your Tongue — Looking for the absolute easiest way possible to use CBD isolate? Simply place it right under your tongue and hold it there for 60-90 seconds. This method works just like taking a regular CBD tincture. The mucous membranes in the mouth absorb the CBD, where it is then sent straight to the bloodstream. One of the best things is that CBD isolate is both tasteless and odorless. Easy breezy.
- Add it to Juice or a Smoothie — If you want a little more excitement, add your CBD isolate to juice or a smoothie. Just measure out the exact serving you desire and stir or shake into your juice or blend it right in with other ingredients in your blender. Adding CBD isolate to your juice or smoothie simply adds to an already healthy option.
- Put it in Coffee or Tea — By far one of our favorite ways to use CBD isolate is by putting it in our coffee. Yes, like many of you, we’re java junkies. Our bullet-proof coffee recipe is one of our faves and can easily be made with CBD isolate. You can also stir it into your regular cup of morning (or afternoon) Joe, where it will mix so well you won’t even know it’s in there. For all you tea drinkers out there, you can also add your desired amount of CBD isolate to your cup of hot tea, stir well and enjoy the extra benefits it brings.
- Create CBD-Infused Meals — If you’re someone who likes to consume CBD in the edible form (or just get crafty in the kitchen), CBD isolate can be added to pretty much anything you eat. Stir it into sauces, soups, stir-fries and dressings, blend it into brownie batter, or sprinkle some on your salad. Just measure out your desired amount and add it to whatever culinary masterpiece you choose to create.
- Create Your Own CBD Sweetener — Speaking of creating culinary masterpieces, CBD isolate can also be used to make your own CBD sweetener. Our favorite way is to blend it in with some local, organic honey or stir it into stevia. You could also add CBD isolate to your syrup to drizzle over pancakes, waffles and French toast.
- DIY CBD Topicals — A really fun way to use CBD isolate is to make your own CBD topicals. Known to provide quick, localized relief, topicals are a great way to soothe a sore back or relieve pain caused by inflammation. There are plenty of resources online that can teach you how to make your own CBD-infused topicals. So whether you prefer a CBD salve, lotion or cream and you like to get down on some DIY recipes, CBD isolate is an awesome addition for anything you decide to create.
- Make Your Own CBD Pet Treats — CBD isn’t just beneficial for humans. Our pets can also greatly benefit from CBD. In fact, using CBD for pets is becoming increasingly common. Why not give your furry friend a treat homemade by you with love? CBD isolate can be added to any pet treat recipe and will do nothing but boost the health of your best friend.
As you can see, there are huge benefits to using CBD isolate. It’s CBD in its purest form. While you won’t get the entourage effect of a full spectrum CBD product, CBD isolate does contain all the benefits of CBD without any trace amounts of THC whatsoever.
One of the best things about CBD isolate is that you get more bang for your buck. A little CBD isolate goes a long way and in the long run can help save you some money, especially if you’re someone who regularly uses CBD. Think of it like this. One gram of CBD isolate typically contains about 990mg CBD. For everyone one milligram of powder you consume, you’re getting right around one milligram of CBD.
This odorless, tasteless, pure form of CBD can be enjoyed by anyone and is just about as versatile as it comes. Still have questions about using CBD isolate? We’re always here to help.
