Are you worried about CBD showing up on a drug test?
More and more companies are conducting random drug tests on their employees. One of the most common drugs they are searching and testing for is marijuana. The compound in marijuana responsible for the psychoactive effects is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Unlike THC, cannabidiol (CBD) has no psychoactive properties.
In the following article, we’ll be taking a closer look at drug tests and how CBD interacts with them. So, if you have been searching for high-quality CBD products, look no further than John’s CBD.
How Is CBD Different from THC?
Both CBD and THC are found in marijuana and hemp plants. However, there’s a big difference between the two. Marijuana plants are high in THC and low in CBD. Hemp plants are the opposite. Hemp is low in THC, usually containing less than 0.3% THC and higher amounts of CBD.
Random drug tests search for various drugs, but they are designed to only test for specific drugs rather than searching for every drug in the world. Most drug tests, in particular, are searching for THC rather than CBD.
So, if you are taking CBD products that contain no THC, you shouldn’t have a high chance of that CBD showing up on a random drug test. However, not all CBD products are the same. Some CBD products, particularly full-spectrum CBD products, can contain trace amounts of THC, usually less than the federally mandated 0.3% THC.
CBD isolate products, on the other hand, usually contain pure CBD and no THC. Broad Spectrum products contain a more full spectrum array of cannabinoids but have had the THC removed. Therefore, if you are taking full spectrum CBD products and being drug tested regularly, you may want to consider switching.
Another factor you need to consider is how much CBD you are using. Even trace amounts of THC in full-spectrum CBD products could add up to enough to trigger a random drug test.
Can CBD Show Up on a Drug Test? – Conclusion
Most people taking CBD products have no fear of failing a random drug test if they’re using CBD isolate or Broad Spectrum products or even small amounts of full-spectrum CBD products. If possible, you may want to advise your employer in advance that you’re taking CBD or avoid any CBD products which contain trace amounts of THC. However, most people have no reason to fear getting a positive result on a random drug test because they are using CBD products regularly.
