Will I fail a drug test if I drink Gorilla Hemp?
No. Commercially available drug tests do not react to CBD in pure isolate form, but rather they evaluate whether THC and other minor cannabinoids are present in your system. Gorilla Hemp contains 0.0mg THC and no other minor cannabinoids. Each batch is tested to ensure that there is no THC present in our products.
Do you do any lab testing for Gorilla Hemp?
Yes. Each batch of Gorilla Hemp is individually tested by third-party laboratories to verify the content of major cannabinoids, including CBD and THC.

What is a cannabinoid?
A cannabinoid is an active phytochemical compound that is present in the Cannabis plant. There are between 80 – 120 known cannabinoids that are naturally occurring in this plant species. The most widely known cannabinoids are Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD). When ingested or applied topically, these compounds can interact with receptors in the human endocannabinoid system to deliver a wide range of mental and physical effects.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, referred to as CBD for short, is one of the most common-occurring cannabinoids found in the Cannabis plant. It is similar in chemical structure to THC but does not deliver the same type of intoxicating effect, which is generally referred to as a “high”. Although research is in its early stages, it is widely believed that CBD has the potential to deliver a wide range of wellness benefits when ingested or applied topically.
What is CBD used for?
CBD has been touted for a wide range of health and wellness benefits throughout history. Although there is significant anecdotal evidence relating to these proposed benefits, the scientific evidence supporting these claims is still in its early stages. Some potential benefits of ingesting or applying CBD topically can include easing anxiousness, reducing stress, combating sleeplessness, and post-workout recovery.
What is the difference between Hemp-derived CBD and Cannabis-derived CBD?
CBD can be derived from either cannabis or hemp, which are both varieties of the Cannabis plant. The Cannabis plant is classified as hemp if it contains less than 0.3% THC and is classified as cannabis for any higher concentration of THC.
How much CBD is in a Gorilla Hemp Serving?
Each can of Gorilla Hemp contains 20mg Hemp CBD isolate, which equates to 10mg per serving. There is currently no FDA regulation or legal mandate as it pertains to CBD serving size, however, our suggested serving size reflects current industry standards. Each person reacts differently to CBD, so we recommend that first time CBD users start with one serving (half can / 10mg Hemp CBD), then wait one hour and see how they feel before consuming more.
Are Marijuana, Hemp, and Cannabis the same thing?
No. Cannabis is a species of flowering plant that consists of three sub-species called Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, and Cannabis ruderalis. Hemp is a broad classification of cannabis that reflects the THC content in the plant. A cannabis plant can only be classified as Hemp if it contains less than 0.3% THC. Marijuana, on the other hand, typically denotes a cannabis plant with a THC percentage exceeding 0.3%. Marijuana is not a scientific nomenclature, but rather a slang word that was adopted in culture and associated with the classic “high” one gets from cannabis products with high THC content.
What is the difference between Full Spectrum CBD, Broad Spectrum CBD, and CBD Isolate?
Full spectrum CBD products contain all phytochemicals that naturally occur in the Cannabis plant, including CBD, THC (less than 0.3%), and other cannabinoids and terpenes. Broad spectrum CBD contains all phytochemicals that occur in the plant, except for THC. Isolate is the purest form of CBD, wherein an extraction process removes all active compounds and phytochemicals from the Cannabis plant, leaving a powder-like substance that is 99% CBD.
Why does Gorilla Hemp use CBD isolate?
There are many benefits to using CBD in isolate form, most notably the ability to deliver a reliable and consistent lot, and the guarantee of zero THC content. Isolate is also the easiest form of CBD to infuse into food and beverage products.
Does CBD come from Hemp Seed Oil?
Hemp seed oil is extracted solely from the seeds of the hemp plant, and as such does not contain any cannabinoids or terpenes, which are the compounds that deliver functional benefits that consumers may seek in hemp products. CBD is a cannabinoid and is derived from the flowers, leaves, and stems of the hemp plant, which is where all cannabinoids and terpenes are found.
Is CBD legal?
Yes. On December 20, 2018, the 2018 Farm Bill became law. As of its enactment, hemp and hemp-derived CBD were removed from federal drug control and declared agricultural commodities. However, while CBD itself is legal pursuant to the Farm Bill, food and beverage products containing CBD fall within the jurisdiction of the FDA and are also regulated by some states. The law permits states to assume primary jurisdiction over the production and retail sale of hemp-derived products, such as CBD. Currently, CBD products are being sold in all fifty states, as no state explicitly criminalizes the retail sale of CBD under state law.
