Can you fail a drug test when using CBD products? Yes, it is possible. We get this questions a lot when explaining what hemp and CBD is. The stigma around cannabis is real. Unfortunately, employers do not want any THC in your system. Once removed from the schedule 1 category, (we all know it will be eventually) we hope that employers will stop testing for THC.
The tricky part of the cannabinoid THC, is it is stored in your fat for up to 30-45 days. Depending on how often you use cannabis. Tinctures, flower, and edibles that have even the minimal amount of THC can throw a positive on a drug test. Topicals tend to only reach the first few layers of your skin, which may not make it to your blood stream. Some brands offer a THC free version like Joy Organics. Be aware when using THC free products that it won’t work as good as a full spectrum. The reason for this because when they are striping the THC from the flower, they also remove other cannabinoids and terpenes. Also, CBD and THC work best when they are together.
If you are subject to a drug test, we suggest you do a couple things. Perhaps, speaking to your employer about it help. Show them the bottle and receipt could help your case. We do suggest that you ask before doing in this case. We have heard so many stories of people losing their job due to using CBD products. If you don’t have a relationship with your employer or do not feel comfortable talking about it with them, we suggest that you do not ingest products that have any THC. You may use topicals for localized pain, as it is less likely for you to have THC in your system. We cannot guarantee this by any means because we are not scientist nor have a medical degree. We have done research and networking to better understand cannabis and it’s effects. Be advised you can purchase THC drug test at any dollar tree to test yourself. Everyone’s body is different and holds substances differently. Better safe than sorry.
We are not medical professionals and we do not give medical advice. We want to make sure you are safe in all ways, while using the brands we offer. You can test fail a drug test, if you ingest products that have even the minimal .3% THC.
