Since 2018, Hammer Nutrition offered the highest-quality broad-spectrum CBD products available, at fair market prices. Whether it’s one of our two strengths of softgels, the water-soluble Hydro tincture, one of the three potencies of oil-based tinctures, or our topical Balm we offer, Hammer Nutrition has you covered!
We’re excited to announce the addition of full-spectrum formulas to our superior-quality CBD offerings. Full-spectrum CBD softgels will come in a 25 mg strength and be available in 30- and 90-count bottles. Full-spectrum oil-based CBD tinctures will come in the standard 1 fluid ounce (30 mL) bottle in 750 mg and 1500 mg potencies.
Broad-Spectrum. Full-Spectrum. What’s the Difference?
Within hemp extract, there are a tremendous number of cannabinoids (over 100), terpenes, flavonoids, and other compounds, all of which provide numerous benefits for many aspects of human health.
One of the cannabinoids found in the hemp plant is THC (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol). In a broad-spectrum formula, all of the aforementioned cannabinoids, terpenes, and more are present, with the exception of THC. In all of Hammer Nutrition’s broad-spectrum CBD formulas there is 0.0% THC content. If you’re a drug-tested athlete or if THC is not permitted in your job (i.e., you’re subject to drug tests) or if you’re one of the countless people who simply don’t want any THC in their bodies, a broad-spectrum formula is what you want.
In a full-spectrum formula, everything is present, including up to 0.3% THC content. The reason why this may be a more-attractive option—especially for anyone who is not subjected to a drug test—is due to what is known as “the entourage effect.” This term—which can also be thought of as “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts”—describes the synergistic benefits that all of the compounds in the hemp plant, including THC, provide when consumed together. Simply put, while a broad-spectrum formula offers tremendous “entourage effect” benefits, a full-spectrum formula offers even better, more-complete “entourage effect” benefits.
Hammer Nutrition continues to lead the industry with the best price per milligram. The good news is that we are able to offer our new full-spectrum products at the exact same price as our broad-spectrum products! Broad- and full-spectrum tinctures, as well as our nono-emulsified softgels are as low as 6.6 cents per mg! Our super popular topical balm is still just 10 cents per mg.
Whatever CBD formula you’re looking for, and whether it be in capsule or tincture form, we have it! Even more importantly, you can have complete confidence that each and every one of Hammer Nutrition’s CBD offerings is the purest to be found. Premium-quality and highly effective. We guarantee it!
*We do not have data yet on whether consuming our full-spectrum CBD will cause a false positive on a 5 panel DOT standardized drug test. In October, we will begin our internal testing program to determine if a positive can be triggered and how much/how long it will take to do so. We’ll be publishing these results right here on ENW as they become available.
However, if you are subject to drug testing, be aware that our broad-spectrum products can be taken safely, without triggering a false positive. The article is re-published below for your convenience.
Hammer CBD Passes All Drug Tests
First published on ENW, June 16 2021
The results are in! You can safely take Hammer CBD and pass any drug test.
I'm reporting our findings after 120 days of usage and testing. Not surprisingly, all three test subjects passed tests with flying colors!
Since the introduction of Hammer Nutrition's CBD products, we have heard from hundreds of clients who are excited about the benefits of CBD but scared to use it. Even though our product is labeled 0.0% THC, we get the same question over and over: “If I take your CBD, will I fail my drug test?” This is a question that I have been very keen to address.
Other clients have been told they should only use CBD isolate, because broad-spectrum CBD products could lead to false positives due to the other cannabidiol components (CBG, CBN, etc.).
Saying a product does not contain a substance and verifying this through ingestion and testing are two different things. So, I decided to develop a simple protocol that would answer this question once and for all.
A five-panel urine test, with a limit of detection (LOD) of 1 part per billion, is the most sensitive, most accurate, and most widely used drug test available. It is used by DOT, law enforcement, military, fire, medical, and for most corporate drug tests. The goal was to determine the answer to both client questions.
For test subjects, I found three people who have never consumed THC before. Details of each subject and their specific test results can be found on the next page.
After passing the initial control test, all three subjects began consuming 50 mg per day of Hammer Nutrition's water-soluble nano-emulsified CBD. Tests were conducted at 30 days and 60 days. After the 60-days, none of the three subjects showed any signs of THC in their system. Two of the subjects then ended their trial.
The third subject (Subject C) was happy to continue the tests and accelerate the dosages being consumed daily with each successive negative test. After the 30-day test, he increased his daily dosage to 100 mg per day. Every 30 days, the dosage was increased by 50 mg per day. All tests were negative. We will continue this process of increasing dosages in 50 mg increments and testing every 30 days until we reach 180 days of consumption.
At 310 pounds, Subject C is approximately twice the weight of our average client. That’s why we are testing abnormally high dosages. On a side note, he is reporting amazing results in the usual areas of benefits with regard to sleep, quality, relaxation, and mood.
We set out to answer a very important question: If you take Hammer CBD, will you fail a drug test? The answer is an emphatic NO! I realize the consequences of failing a drug test could be catastrophic. However, I also know many who desperately want to have access to CBD and its myriad benefits but are being told not to risk it.
I cannot speak for any other brand of CBD, but I am 100% confident that you can use Hammer Nutrition's CBD products with complete peace of mind. They will not cause you to fail any drug test.
All subjects were tested with a 5-panel urine analysis for detecting Methamphetamines and Amphetamines, THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), Cocaine, Opiates and PCP (Phencyclidine). All subjects confirmed that there were not any of these substances in their systems. All received an “N” for negative. All subjects then began to consume 50 mg daily of Hammer CBD softgels (phytocannabinoid-rich hemp oil, made from the whole plant).
All three subjects tested negative for all five drugs and Subject C increased his dosage to 100 mg daily.
The next day of testing showed the same negative results for all five drugs for each subject. Subject M and S stopped the trial after 60 days while Subject C continued increasing his dosage.
Subject C tested negative for all five drugs again and increased his dosage to 200 mg daily.
Subject C tested negative at 120 days and will continue to increase his dosage every 30 days by 50 mg to gather more data.
The results after 120 days of testing concluded that the usage of Hammer CBD (0.0% THC) and derivatives (CBG, CBN, CBC, CBD-A, CBDV) will not cause a false positive for THC. If there is any THC found in urine samples, it would be safe to say that the failed subject has consumed marijuana (tetrahydrocannabinol). THC usually stores within lipid cells up to a month after THC consumption, depending on the consumer’s BMI. Test subjects in Hammer Nutrition’s CBD system loading (30-, 60-, and 90-day), ranges from 27.4 BMI to 42.0 BMI, proving that our product will not cause a failure in testing.
