Is CBD oil legal?

Is it safe to use at work?

Will it get me high?

If you’re new to CBD, chances are you’ve got some questions. And perhaps the biggest question of them all is this one: “Does CBD oil contain THC?”

That depends on your source. Medterra’s CBD does not — it’s entirely free of THC. Here’s a closer look.


THC stands for Tetrahydrocannabinol, and it’s a naturally-occurring compound found in both marijuana and hemp plants. While THC is only one of over a hundred different cannabioids, it’s the most prevalent one in maijuana, by far. It’s also the cannabinoid responsible for delivering the “high” feeling associated with marijuana.

Typically, marijuana’s THC levels average around 30%. Hemp’s THC levels, on the other hand, stay below .3% — not nearly enough to deliver that psychoactive “high” feeling.

But even this small amount of THC is enough to turn off some people. Some may just wish to not have THC in their system; others may choose to avoid it because of drug testing concerns.

Hey, we get it. The desire to avoid THC in a CBD product is an understandable one!

Getting CBD without any THC is simple: just opt for a CBD product that’s been sourced from industrial hemp. Thanks to the passage of the Hemp Farming Act, hemp is an agricultural commodity, which means that hemp-derived CBD products are legal throughout the UK and can be purchased almost anywhere.


Once harvested, hemp plants go through an extraction process that uses solvents to pull the most important cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids out of their biomass. A secondary extraction/filtration process is then used to separate and concentrate CBD.

At Medterra, many of our products are created using isolated CBD. When you purchase CBD Oil from Medterra, you’re getting CBD that’s 100% THC-free — guaranteed.
