Does CBD Oil show up on drugs tests?
In recent times, an increasing number of employers are testing their employees for drugs. So it’s only natural to ask “Will I fail a drugs test with CBD oil?”.
The answer to questions on CBD oil ( cannabidiol) and drugs tests is – it depends. Let me explain…
Cannabis contains both CBD and THC. THC is the psychoactive part that gives the user the recreational “high”. CBD does not give any effect like this. So usually drugs test only for THC.
However some CBD oils also contain THC. Some contain relatively large quantiles, whereas others contain only small amounts. And some none at all – usually the higher quality ones.
So if you want to be absolutely sure of passing your drugs test, opt for a CBD oil that contains no THC.
Make sure you buy from a reputable dealer. Some CBD oil companies have been known to provide inaccurate information on their labels in order to increase their sales. So read reviews and look to suppliers that trade under a strong brand where they rely on reputation.
If you want to be doubly sure, then why not invest in a simple drugs urine test to see how you fair? That way you can be sure you are able to pass your work place drugs test.
If you pass, then great. Keep using the same CBD oil in the same quantities. If you fail, then change brands and try again.
If you change brand or increase your usage, then re-test to see if you still pass. Leave it a few days to allow any potential THC to build up in your system.
Many CBD oils contain small amounts of THC. So if you increase your usage, then there’s a chance you could cross the threshold and fail your drugs test.
Of course if you do fail, you explain to your employer why you failed, and show them what you are taking. However it then becomes an issue as to whether they believe you.
So it’s best you do your research and buy a CBD oil with little or no TNC in it. Then test yourself regularly, especially when you’ve changed brand or increased doses. That way you can be confident you can use your CBD oil without getting yourself in bother. Good luck!
