Why you will PASS a drug test when using BCP Oil?
Hi again from the Canna Oils team. This week I wanted to explain why you don’t have to worry about being drug tested when taking Canna Oils BCP (Beta Caryophyllene).
Whether it’s fear of the flashing blue light when driving, that random test at your workplace or simply just not wanting to feel “high”, Canna Oils BCP is a safe and effective product that does NOT have psychoactive effects. Why is that, when BCP works similarly to cannabis?
Let’s go back over some of the basics that we have learnt along the way (please go back and read previous blogs to refresh your memory). So we all have a system in our bodies called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which is responsible for regulating the other systems in our body (very basic explanation here). The ECS has two types of receptors – CB1 and CB2. Remember BCP interacts ONLY with the CB2 receptors which run peripherally throughout the body.
But what about CB1 receptors and other compounds at work in the ECS? Firstly, we need to know what THC is – Tetrahydrocannabinol is the principal psychoactive constituent of cannabis.
When people talk about the benefits of THC, what they are more accurately describing are the benefits of activating CB1.
THC, the most common cannabinoid in cannabis and primary courier of its euphoric effects, readily activates CB1 receptors.
When THC binds with CB1 receptors, it triggers increased blood flow to the prefrontal cortex, the area of the brain responsible for decision-making, attention, and various executive functions. The amount of THC you take will play a role in how much the cannabinoid affects these functions.
THC activates CB1 receptors to make you feel stoned. The high is essentially an abnormal increase in the activity of CB1 receptors. Once THC is gone, this activity usually returns to normal.
So basically, the short answer to our question is – it’s THC that activates the CB1 receptors which is responsible for psychoactive effect (which is what drug tests look for).
BCP does not interact with the CB1 receptors and there is no THC in Canna Oils BCP. How do we know that? Because our oil is extracted from either the black pepper or clove plants, NOT cannabis.
So we can get the benefits associated with activating our ECS without the worry of failing a drug test – once again, Canna Oil BCP is a win-win product.
