CBD (Cannabidiol) is a naturally occurring ingredient in industrial hemp. When ingested, it reacts with the body's endocannabinoid system and has been known to help relieve, treat and even reduce certain ailments.
Drug screens test for THC, among other drugs. Hemp-derived CBD is not something they test for and due to the lack of THC, CBD-only products should not show up on a drug test. However, not all CBD products are made equal, nor are they all made from the hemp plant; therefore, we can't speak for all CBD companies. See the next FAQ for a better understanding.

HEMP, as in industrial hemp, is a member of the Cannabis family, but does not contain enough of the psychoactive compound (THC) to be considered illegal per the United States Controlled Substances Act (US.CSA). Although hemp cannot be grown in most states in the U.S., importing hemp has been legal for many years (as a food supplement), hence many forms available to be purchased throughout grocery stores and health-focused businesses across the nation, including but not limited to, protein powders, shampoos and balms. Our Hemp-derived CBD is legal in all 50 states due to its amount of THC (0.1%) being lower than what is deemed illegal. This amount is not enough to produce a "high" feeling or show up on a drug test.
MARIJUANA, on the other hand, comes in many different forms. The marijuana plant is typically what everyone is referring to when you hear any of the slang terms that come along with the subject (ie. pot, mary j, reefer, dope, etc). Although CBD can be found in marijuana, THC is typically more prevalent and is the reason one would get "high" from using it. There are certain strains of marijuana that can be grown specifically to highlight CBD, but these are more rare and aren't as common as other options.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Dro-tein contains 100% hemp-derived CBD.
No. Although, very recently, CBD has been claimed 'beneficial' by the FDA, all statements are testimonial based and are not official claims. The statements made regarding these products have not been completely evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. The efficacy of these products has not been confirmed by FDA-Approved research. Please consult your health care professional about potential interactions or any other possible complications before using any CBD product(s).
Dro-tein believes in breaking the mold of the hemp/cannabis industry by combining a hemp product - CBD - with a product that is in the cabinets of almost every household in America - protein powder.
We chose protein because, personally, we use hemp/cannabis in our fitness regimen and have met lots of others over the years that do too. We want to show the rest of the world that the "lazy" "stoner" is a myth and that hemp, specifically CBD, carries its own benefits for every day use.
WHY CBD + PROTEIN?
What are the benefits of combining CBD and Protein?
CBD is known to be used as an anti-inflammatory, it relieves nausea and pain, reduces anxiety and promotes cardiovascular health and bone growth.
Combining the aforementioned benefits of CBD with the well-known benefits of protein powder (muscle growth, metabolism booster, recovery aid) will help fill the knowledge gap and help answer the question, "Why would I use CBD", while providing a great go-to snack for your average joe or a CBD boost for your protein shake guru.
Not at all! There is only a small amount of protein per scoop of Dro-tein - 5g - and is not enough to bulk someone up. Compare the amount of protein in each scoop to a cup of milk or 1/4 cup of almonds.
