No, you will not fail a drug test because of CBD. One simple reason is that the assay used to perform drug tests is not meant to be investigating for CBD but THC. This is because most employers and other people of consequences are not particularly concerned about CBD as it is not psychoactive. THC on the other hand is problematic. There will usually be a little bit of THC in CBD products. Only about 0.3% of the cannabinoid content will be THC. This level is left in to aid the entourage effect. CBD can however exist in apure state at 99% purity or more.
There have been a few reported cases of people failing drug tests. This despite only taking CBD products. It is confounding. How can this happen. Usually a test is done to check for marijuana content in the body. Then an affirmation test is done to determine that there really is THC in the system. How then could these people fail drug tests?
The average recommended dosage per day is 160mg of CBD product.However, if you take almost twenty times this amount, there will be a false positive on your drug test. That brings it to more than 1000mg of CBD a day. So about two full bottles of CBD oil a day. That is crazy to begin with. It is strongly advised against. CBD is not reported to have any adverse effects. However, who knows what could happen at such exorbitant levels? The false positive aforementioned can be easily verified.
CBD has become so popular. It is quite the cash cow. In fact, it is estimated that in about five years, the CBD market will be worth more than $20 Billion. Everyone wants a piece of the pie. For that reason, some unsavory practises have developed. Are you sure about the cannabinoid content and profile of the product you are using? Have you verified the information provided on the product packaging? Is there a way the product could have been contaminated? These are just ways in which THC cold have gotten into the product and later into the bloodstream.
Purpose of Test
You could also fail the drug test because the lab was looking for it. CBD has spread like wildfire. However, there are still some people who are a little slow on the uptake. There are also those who will not look past the word marijuana to see CBD for what it really is. Therefore, CBD is considered a point of concern along with THC. There could be a belief that the CBD will cause impairment. Despite this being very far from the truth, obviously. So, the company will find a way to test for CBD. In this instance, you will fail the test.
To Ease The Fears…
Ideally, you should not be concerned about a positive drug test because of CBD. If you are still feeling a little jumpy about it, here are a few measures to ensure you do not test positive. To also ensure, the higher ups are not surprised if one of those flukes occur.
No THC CBD
As mentioned before, CBD can exist independently without THC. A study in 2015 revealed that CBD without other cannabinoids would not be remotely as superior but why gamble. Just go for the isolate. Isolate is a purely CBD product that makes for a great additive. It contains no trace of other cannabinoid or marijuana elements. This way, you are in the clear. You will not worry about trace amount of THC showing up on drug tests. Broad spectrum CBD may also be applicable in this instance. See, broad spectrum is simply the full spectrum with the THC washed out. What remains of the THC is trace amounts. Amounts that will not be visible on a test.
Verifiable Cannabinoid Profile
Do not just pick up anything off the shelf. Scrutinise it first. Read the test results. They should be third party. They should indicate a desirable cannabinoid profile. A reputable brand will be too careful to compromise the quality of the CBD products. Reputation is a valuable aspect of business. Do your research before you start using CBD. There are many platforms online where one can get all the information possible. From the best quality products to the cheapest. You will even get information on suspect brands. Use that information. Be pickier in your selection. That said, you should also ensure to keep the purely CBD products away from elements that could contaminate it. Ensure it does not get all mixed up and possibly infected with THC.
Stick to the lowest possible dosage. What are you using this CBD for? Not only will this help you steer clear of positive drug tests, it will also help ensure you do not develop a tolerance to the CBD. The dosage thing is especially important if you are including a bit of THC in the dose. The levels will remain low and barely traceable in tests.
You might be of the opinion that it is no one’s business how you derive relief from migraines and other everyday afflictions. However, if it comes to the issue of drug tests then you need to disclose. Talk to the relevant authorities. Let them now you are using CBD for such and such a reason. If possible provide a prescription from a physician. Let it be known. This way, when the drug tests comes in positive, it will not be much of a surprise that there is a bit of THC in the system. You may also go a step further and have the physician write a note that the prescription in no way impairs your judgement or affects your performance at work.
IN some cases, the THC may be necessary. It may be crucial to relief albeit in small amount. If you are fortunate enough to know about the drug test in advance, here is some information. Seven days after consumption, THC metabolites decrease by half. A drug tests will detect THC levels from 50 ng/ml. You do not have to be completely free of it. The level can just be lower than that. You may decide to cease for a bit. You may also decide to go for a lower dose. Or, as mentioned above, let the powers that be know beforehand.
