As busy professionals or semi-professionals from dozens of diverse career fields, there is one thing most people have in common: they care about their jobs. Because most people rely on their paychecks to maintain their livelihood and provide for themselves or their families, it makes sense to be skeptical of a product that they fear may show up on a drug test and jeopardize their reputation and record – the risk is far too great.

So, if you are wondering, “If I try CBD, am I at risk of it showing up on a drug test?” we are here to clear up some of the confusion for you. While we wish this was a simple “yes” or “no” question to make it as easy as possible, it isn’t. But don’t worry – we will break down everything you need to know in an easy-to-understand way, so you’re completely equipped to make well-informed decisions.

Because CBD Can Vary… The Answer Varies

We completely understand that a “yes” or “no” would be convenient and helpful, but unfortunately, there are a few factors to consider when you purchase and consume CBD, therefore, there isn’t a simple answer. Let’s first get to know a little bit about CBD in general, as this can help create a foundation of knowledge to build upon.

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of the many compounds extracted from plants in the cannabis family. You may be familiar with this plant family, as its most well-known plants include marijuana and hemp.

This is a very important distinction to acknowledge: While marijuana and hemp are both in the cannabis family, only CBD extracted from the hemp plant is legal under federal law (The 2018 Farm Bill). The law states that hemp-derived CBD containing .3% THC or less is legal to purchase, consume, and even travel with in the United States. THC is the ingredient known for its psychoactive side effects. However, this trace amount is considered miniscule and deemed safe. Consumers who consume hemp-derived CBD can enjoy the benefits of CBD without the psychoactive effects, which is one of the many charms of this all-natural product.

“Broad-Spectrum” and “Full-Spectrum” CBD

Even though the law allows up to .3% THC, some retailers take the additional step of removing every trace of THC for their customers. Those products are called “broad-spectrum.” “Broad spectrum” products are very popular amongst CBD enthusiasts, as they find comfort in knowing they aren’t consuming any microscopic traces of THC.  Products that do contain the maximum amount of THC (.3%) are labeled “full-spectrum,” letting customers know that there are trace amounts of THC within the ingredient compound. Remember, both are completely legal – they are just different, and that difference can be important if you are concerned about passing a drug test.

In theory, CBD alone should not show up on a drug test, but THC might. Here’s where it can get tricky.

If you ingest a “broad-spectrum” CBD product (which should contain 0% THC), there should be no risk of it showing up on a drug test. However, you have to be a diligent consumer and make sure that the company guarantees and verifies that all THC has been removed. This means, don’t just take their word for it. All reputable CBD brands should provide third-party lab reports, verifying all ingredient claims made on the label, which provides clear proof that your product is THC-free. This is especially important, as studies have shown that some CBD products make claims on the label that are false, making it difficult for customers to trust what their label says. This can also be potentially dangerous, as you cannot properly control your dosage if you are unsure of your product’s ingredients and potency.

You may be wondering if “full-spectrum” CBD products will show up on a drug test. Again, the answer is unclear because there are many variables to consider. First, the law still requires a maximum amount of .3% THC to be in your product, so it’s just as important to view a third-party lab report to verify that the label matches the contents of the bottle. If there is more THC, it’s likely that the CBD is not hemp-derived, which does not comply with the law.

Also, you have to consider:

  1. How much of the “full-spectrum” CBD product you take
  2. How much THC is in each dosage, and how much you are ingesting at once
  3. How your body metabolizes your dosage
  4. The exact criteria of the drug test you are taking (this can vary, depending on who is facilitating the test)

So, while CBD shouldn’t show up on a drug test, if it contains THC, there is a chance that it might.

Better Safe Than Sorry

When your livelihood, integrity, and reputation depend on it, it truly is better to play it safe. For some, this might mean avoiding CBD altogether. For many, though, they want the best of both worlds: The benefits of CBD, AND to pass drug tests. And with the number of responsibilities, commitments, and roles most individuals embrace on a regular basis, they deserve it!

Hey there friends,

We wanted to take a few moments to update you on what some of our team members at Rejuvia have been doing recently, and how they are staying busy. We all have a lot more free time than before, but we aren’t able to spend it like we normally would. We aren’t able to enjoy our regular coffee shops, team lunches and our frequented fitness classes or yoga classes. Yes, we are disappointed about that, but we’ve been finding so much joy in new activities and the great outdoors!

One thing that was common amongst all of our team members was that we are spending so much more time outside! The weather, at least around Philadelphia, has been incredibly nice and pleasant! It’s almost like Mother Nature knew we’d have to socially distance ourselves for a little bit of time, so she rewarded us with some amazing Spring weather.

Our team has been doing things like running, walking around their neighborhoods with their dogs, going on nature walks in surrounding parks and mountains, and even doing online yoga classes outside. The time by ourselves has undoubtedly helped us connect deeper with nature and enjoy more sun, and nice temperatures.

Our team is also taking part in all of our virtual zoom meetings while outside. It’s something that our co-founder, RC, has greatly encouraged our team to do. Spending time outside is good for our soul, and seems to brighten up our days that much more.

Some of our team members have also gone on long nature drives. Yes, it’s important to continue to practice the best sanitary and safety measures at all times, but going on longer drives is still OK! It’s quite cleansing to drive around and simply observe nature and all of its beauty.

We’re also spending a lot more time watching Netflix and reading books. Yes, we admit it, we are Netflix-bingers too! Some shows we’ve been loving recently on Netflix are: Ozark, MindHunter and of course, The Office. This might be the first time in history that we can save the world and stop the pandemic by simply staying home and watching Netflix, and trust us, we are playing our role in that!

Our team has a bunch of avid-readers. We’ve love hearing about what our team members have been reading recently and some of the knowledge they’ve been gaining. We really encourage and love reading at Rejuvia. We believe it’s so crucial to take some time to yourself each day to let your mind settle down and simply focus on one thing: the encapsulating book you’re into at that time. Some books our team has been reading lately are: Originals by Adam Grant, Why We Sleep by Mathew Walker, and Brain Maker by David Perlmutter.

Obviously, we are missing one important thing about what we’re doing with our social-distancing time: how we are continuing to inspire health and wellness to our entire community and beyond. These times call for us to be innovative and creative. We aren’t able to continue on with our daily routines. This has allowed us to gain new perceptive on all our of doings before the COVID-19 outbreak, and analyze how we can continue to get better.

One thing we’ve started this week is setting up calls or Face-time with customers to talk about their experiences, wellness routines and how CBD has inspired their wellness revolution. We find great value in hearing as many perspectives as we can, and we are so happy to build strong, purposeful relationships with everyone in our community. Every conversation we have with our community gives us more and more insight into how we should be thinking about future products, development of current products, and how we can continue to push forward our wellness mission.

Additionally, we’ve been taking this time to grow closer as a team. We believe our relationships with our community can only be strong if those within our team are strong. Each day, we are learning new things about one another and how we all think and approach certain things. In turn, this allows us to grow as a team and find more and more creative ways to expand upon our wellness mission.

Take a moment to check out our Instagram at @rejuviahemp. We are trying out new things like live steaming Q&As with our team members, hosting live yoga classes and much more. We’d love to try to get as many community members together at the same time as we can!

We hope you all are continuing to practice the best social distancing practices, the best sanitation and safety measures, and enjoying as much time as you can with your loved ones. We know in a short time we will all get through times stronger and more together than before.

In Wellness,

The Rejuvia Team

There’s no denying that life can be hectic. We sometimes astonish ourselves with how much we voluntarily add to our seemingly full plate, and yet we usually do so with a smile, knowing that our family, friends, career, or home really need the time and attention. The phrase “self-care” has begun making it’s way around the internet, and yet, to many, it still remains more of a mythological concept rather than an easy-to-implement practice. It’s probably because adding anything else to an already full schedule (even if it’s something you’ll probably enjoy) sounds overwhelming and time-consuming, and who needs that? Not me, and not you.

As a result, many of us spend parts of our days on auto-pilot, so to speak. We go through our routines with just enough presence of mind to be there and do what we need to do, yet we often can’t even recall the details of our breakfast, our drives to and from work, and our other usual tasks. When it comes down to it, we are tired. Exhausted, if we’re being honest. Yet, when the long days are finally over, why is it so difficult to sleep?

There are numerous potential causes for sleep troubles, so let’s first outline those. Then, we will explore some practical, natural solutions that actually work, so you can shift from auto-pilot to engaged and start enjoying life with renewed energy.

Common Causes for Sleepless Nights

When you don’t get a good night’s sleep, everything seems a little off.  If you wake up tired, the day ahead already seems daunting and it takes some serious will-power to get yourself moving. At the end of each day, when you are finally ready to let your head hit the pillow, you probably feel like it should be easy to fall asleep, right? Why does it seem like such a challenge? If you’re someone who relates to this, one of these common things may be the source of your insomnia:

  • You may be consuming too much caffeine. Whether it’s too much caffeine in general or too much caffeine too late in the day, this could be the culprit keeping you up at night, causing you to feel unsettled, jittery, and fidgety.
  • You may be addicted to your electronics. If you can’t stop checking your phone, watching TV, or reading on your tablet, you may be surprised to learn what these devices are doing to your brain. The blue lights from these screens communicate to your brain that it’s time to wake up. Essentially, these lights trigger the same brain receptors as actual daylight, throwing your body’s circadian rhythm completely off.
  • You may not be getting enough exercise. In the same way that reading or studying can lull our minds into a sleepy trance, exercise (and the cool down) impacts the entire body, affecting your ability to fully relax at the end of the day.
  • Your diet could be negatively impacting your entire body. If you frequently reach for fast food or convenient foods that are high in sugar and salt, the entire balance of your body could be suffering the consequences. Too much salt, sugar, and processed foods could lead to headaches, discomfort in your stomach, and bodily fatigue.
  • You may have an inconsistent schedule / routine. If your body is constantly forced to adjust itself to early and late wake ups and bedtimes, it doesn’t have the ability to create a true rhythm with predictable sleep cycles. This can make falling asleep and staying asleep a challenge.
  • You may be an overthinker, and your mind can’t relax when your body needs it to. Many people don’t realize the intimate connection between the mind and body, and how much they impact one another. If you are someone who worries a lot, can’t stop making mental lists of things to do the next day, and stresses about the “what-ifs” of everything from the weather to your favorite TV show, your fast-paced mind could be to blame for your sleepless nights.

These are just some of the many reasons you may have trouble sleeping. And if you can relate to one (or many) of the above causes, there is good news for you! You absolutely can conquer your sleep woes and get yourself on track to achieving a more restful night’s sleep with just a few small behavior changes. And remember that mythical idea of self-care we discussed earlier? In just a few steps, it can be incorporated so smoothly into your life that it won’t feel like an additional time commitment. You’ll simply make a couple of small behavior shifts and reap the benefits of a rejuvenating night’s sleep, resulting in more energy, vitality, and zest for life!

Natural Remedies to Encourage Better Sleep

Because a few small changes can have a drastic impact on your sleepless nights, we have decided to put together a list of natural remedies to encourage better sleep. This is because we find that natural, safe, easy-to-implement solutions are not only easier to start – but over time, they are much easier to maintain. You may want to start small and try just one or two of the below recommendations. Although, keep in mind that the more intentional you are with your small behavior shifts, the more likely you are to see better (and quicker) results. So don’t be afraid to incorporate all of the following recommendations as soon as possible in order to expedite your improved night’s sleep.

In no particular order, here are some excellent, natural ways to improve your insomnia and start achieving the restful night’s sleep you need and deserve:

? Switch to decaf, or set a “caffeine cutoff time“ before noon.

Caffeine is known for giving you the pick-me-up you need first thing in the morning. But it’s easy to forget that caffeine is a stimulant, and it can truly disrupt your sleep schedule when you consume too much of it. Studies have found that caffeine has a stimulating effect in as little as 15 minutes, providing a jolt of energy and adrenaline by blocking the chemicals in your brain that tell you it’s time to rest. According to research by the National Sleep Foundation, it takes about six hours for half of the caffeine to be eliminated from the body. So, do yourself a favor and reduce or eliminate your caffeine, and let your brain (and body) rest.

Note: If you have been drinking coffee or caffeinated beverages habitually for an extended period of time, reducing your caffeine intake could result in withdrawal symptoms, such as headache and fatigue. But this is completely natural and after a couple of days, your body will be retrained and your new, healthier habits will prevail.

?Set a time to “power down” all electronics at least an hour before bed.

This may sound criminal to those whose routine includes looking at social media, texting loved ones, or reading articles before bed. You may love to watch your favorite movie or TV show before attempting to lull into a cozy slumber for the night. That’s why we hate to break it to you, but you need to ditch this late-night habit if you want to improve your sleep quality. There are many reasons your phone and other screens are hindering your ability to rest. So if you can simply set a time to either turn off your devices or plug them in and forget about them for the night, you’ll do your brain and body a whole lot of good.

?Increase your physical activity during the day.

For many, the idea of adding time to work out sounds impossible. If you can squeeze in a 30-60 minute workout, that would be great! If your schedule simply doesn’t allow for that, there are small ways you can increase your activity regularly, too. Consider:

  • Riding a bike to work if you live close enough to do so safely
  • Walking to get your lunch instead of ordering delivery
  • Take the stairs whenever possible
  • Multitask by doing stretches or a short yoga routine while watching the nightly news or while waiting for dinner to cook

Physical activity is good for your entire body, and you will reap many rewards when you incorporate more physical activity into your life, including improved sleep.

?Make healthier food choices on a regular basis.

Food acts as fuel for our bodies, so when we eat an excessive amount of processed, salty, or sugary foods, our bodies suffer the consequences. If you can make a small shift in your diet and reach for healthier alternatives when you snack and dine, your entire body will thank you. Consider:

  • Bringing homemade lunches instead of purchasing your meals from a local fast food restaurant
  • Packing fruit, vegetables, or roasted nuts as a snack to help avoid impulse purchases of unhealthy snack foods
  • Explore healthy recipes that you actually like, so eating healthy doesn’t feel like a chore

You may be surprised to see how good you feel after a few days of eating food that is clean fuel for your body, and how much better you may sleep after you improve your eating habits.

?Try to set a consistent sleep schedule, and follow it.

For some, setting and following a consistent sleep schedule is nearly impossible. Whether it’s because of ever-changing routines with kids or spouses or your own varying work schedule, many don’t have the simple luxury of controlling their wake ups and bed times consistently. However, if you can, you should.

Studies have shown that a consistent schedule helps train your mind and body,  and that a routine becomes easier to follow over time, as you can achieve a true rhythm in your rest cycles (commonly known as the “circadian rhythm”). If you can, gIve a true “sleep schedule” a try for a week or two, and observe the change in your ability to fall asleep more quickly and soundly.

?Create a tranquil environment so your mind can relax.

Our minds dictate so much more than we realize, and when the mind can’t relax, neither can the body. If you can’t turn your mind off easily, you may have to start taking more intentional measures to encourage true relaxation so you can fully decompress before bed. There are dozens of things you can do, but here are our favorites because they are nearly effortless and they work:

  • Lower the lights, have some chamomile tea, and light a candle. Sounds too simple, right? Setting the scene for relaxation in your physical environment tells the brain to slow down, and you can begin to unwind.
  • Meditate. There are numerous meditation options that can help your mind embrace genuine relaxation. Whichever option you choose, make sure that you are fully tuned in to your body and your breath, and quiet everything else, even if it’s just for five solid minutes. This peace and solitude will overwhelmingly benefit your ability to relax and, consequently, your ability to sleep.
  • Try an all-natural product containing Melatonin. Melatonin is a naturally-occurring hormone produced by your body. Whether it’s because of poor diet, too much blue-light exposure, smoking, or other bodily fatigues, sometimes our bodies don’t produce enough melatonin to signal to the brain that it’s time to sleep. Adding a supplement containing melatonin can help compensate for that deficit, increasing the sleep-evoking signals to your brain.
  • Write your woes down in a journal (earlier in the day) so you can channel your thoughts in a healthy way instead of staying up late, worrying. There are numerous ways to “shut off your brain” before bed, and this one really targets the many thoughts you can’t seem to ignore, paving the way to true mental relaxation.

Healthy Choices Encourage a Healthier, Happier Life

Sleep (or a lack of it) can impact your entire life, as the way you feel when you wake up can dictate how you feel for the rest of the day and your ability to engage with and enjoy your life. Conquering your sleep troubles is a step in the direction of having a happier, healthier life. All of the above suggestions are natural, easy to implement, and truly can make a difference.

If you are seeking additional safe, healthy additions to your routine, consider trying the product that is making headlines across the US for it’s overwhelmingly positive reviews in the health and wellness market: CBD. Short for cannabidiol, this hemp-derived, naturally occurring compound can be found in numerous health and wellness products in stores and online. Consumers are thrilled to have an all-natural, non-addictive, versatile product to incorporate into their routines.

Hemp-derived CBD is not only completely legal (since The Farm Bill of 2018 passed), but many reputable CBD brands, like Rejuvia™, organically grow and process their hemp under strict, meticulous standards, ensuring that your natural product is also clean, pure, non-GMO, and effective. Under the law, all hemp-derived CBD products are legal as they contain .3% THC or less. But Rejuvia™ takes the additional step of removing every single trace of THC (the ingredient known for its psychoactive effects), so you can shop with absolute confidence. For your added peace of mind (and to continue maintaining their unmatched reputation in the CBD industry for providing the highest quality CBD), Rejuvia™ also utilizes a third-party lab to verify all of their claims, so you never have to wonder whether the ingredients match the bottle – you’ll know. If you’re curious whether a CBD product may fit into your routine, reach out to Rejuvia™, and a CBD specialist will be happy to help!

A Better Night’s Sleep Awaits!

Whether you choose to implement some or all of the above recommendations, one fact remains: you can improve your ability to sleep! Observe your daily (and nightly) behavior, and make small changes where you see fit. Use the guide above as a road map to your sleep success. You may be surprised to see that your ability to fall asleep and stay asleep has been within reach all along. Once you start enjoying days with increased energy and vitality,  you may never look back. Say goodbye to those sleepless nights!
