For cannabis users who have occupations that require drug testing, it’s reasonable to have questions about the process. A common question asked is whether CBD will register as positive on a drug test? While the answer is generally no, there are instances due to various reasons where a positive result could occur.
As mentioned, Cannabinoid (CBD) will not usually cause a positive test because it’s not something that is typically looked at by employers. Instead, a failed drug test is often caused by THC, an ingredient that many CBD products contain. A common test that workplaces employ is a urine sample that screens for THC. Furthermore, THC can persist in your body and urine for a lengthier period of time.
Know Your CBD’s Source
It’s important to know where your CBD comes from. The source of your CBD product can impact the level of THC concentration it contains. CBD extracts from hemp typically have a high CBD to low THC ratio. They are legal since they contain less than 0.3 % THC concentration. However, CBD extraction from cannabis, a preferred method for some, can produce higher THC concentration and could result in a flagged drug test.
The Danger of Mislabels and Inaccurate information
A positive drug test could come as a result of mislabeling or misinformation from your CBD product. Several studies and research done have shown that various CBD products found on online marketplaces and unregulated spaces have inaccurate information about their CBD and THC levels. It was even found that some of these products contained enough THC to cause intoxication.
