Many people in the United States have to submit to drug testing for one reason or another. Many pain doctors or employers tend to perform these tests, but where does CBD stand? Will CBD show on a drug test?
This isn’t quite a yes or no question. The average drug test in the United States is the SAMHSA 5 which does test for the compound tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which can be found in the same plant that CBD is derived from. Although these two compounds are from the same plant cannabis sativa, they both have unique qualities.
It is important to know what type of CBD you are taking. With full spectrum CBD oil, it is likely you could test positive for THC. Less than .3% of THC is available in full spectrum CBD products. However, if you are looking for the health benefits CBD has to offer, there is a way to take it without worry about failing a drug test.
Broad spectrum and CBD isolate products such as tinctures contain zero THC. Broad spectrum CBD has other cannabinoids, and CBD isolate is exactly as it sounds; the CBD compound isolated.
In the case you are the prospect for an exciting career advancement that requires a drug test, or the pain clinic you visit tests you each time you go, you can still get the benefits from CBD. Always make sure you are purchasing from a reputable distributor in order to ensure the products are indeed what they say they are.
