In theory it is possible. However, the drug screen for THC-COOH is known to have very little impact on the other non-psychoactive cannabinoids. The only real situation where having a compromised drug test is a true potential is either having THC in the product or an extremely high daily dosage of non-psychoactive cannabinoids. An extreme dosage would be considered to be approximately 1000-2000 mg daily. The high dosages have potential for hot samples because of the sheer amount non-psychoactive metabolites or compounds.

What is the Endo-Cannabinoid system?
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the mammalian brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems, consisting of neuro-modulatory lipids and their receptors. This system was discovered in the 1990’s and is responsible for various physiological processes such as appetite, pain sensation, mood and memory.
What are Phyto-cannabinoids and how are they up taken by the body?
Phytocannabinoids are cannabinoids that occur naturally in the cannabis plant. The classical cannabinoids are formed through decarboxylation of their respective 2-carboxylic acids (2-COOH), a process which is started off by heat, light or alkaline conditions. Specific cannabinoids stimulate the receptors in the Endo-Cannabinoid system and then are distributed throughout the body.

Isolated Extract is exactly that, molecules that are completely separated from the other cannabinoids. This leaves you with a single phytocannabinoid only extract. A study performed at the Lautenberg Center for Tumor Immunology in Israel indicates that Isolated Oil “yields a belle-curve of efficacy while full spectrum products continued efficacy at higher dosages. All tests conducted in the study showed that Isolated Oil is only effective at certain dosages.
What is the most efficient means of ingesting phytocannabinoids?
