cbd vape oil show up on drug test

If you consider a drug test to be ruined when it shows a positive result for THC, then the chances of CBD “ruining” a drug test are very slim. All CBD products contain trace amounts of THC, and some contain more THC than others. If you’re concerned that testing positive for THC could impact your job, clear your CBD use with the party requesting the test first.

With the exact percentages of CBD and THC in the product and the THC detection threshold of the test, it’s possible to calculate how much of a particular CBD product you can use before you test positive for THC. Just keep the following in mind if you’re worried about failing your drug test due to CBD:

If drug screenings tested for CBD, it’s likely this cannabinoid would remain detectable in your system for around 30 days. That’s how long THC stays in your system as well, and approximately 30 days is the standard excretion time for fat-soluble substances.

Topical application of CBD , on the other hand, addresses specific areas without providing a notable system-wide effect. CBD can be formulated into both water-based and oil-based topical products, which has resulted in an extremely diverse cannabidiol topical market.

When you ingest CBD orally, it passes through your liver before entering your bloodstream. This option provides a full-body effect, but the intensity is limited by your digestive system’s filtration mechanisms, and you can’t pinpoint problem areas.

There’s always a potential — however slim — that CBD might make you fail a drug test since every CBD product contains some trace amount of THC. That’s the case whether it’s full-spectrum CBD with up to 0.3% THC or purified CBD isolate with just a few THC molecules kicking around.

Out of all the different types of CBD, full-spectrum CBD is the most likely to cause a false positive on a drug test for THC. That’s because full-spectrum hemp products might contain up to 0.3% THC, which is allowed by the 2018 Farm Bill .

CBD is one of many active chemical compounds in the cannabis plant. One reason it’s gaining momentum in popularity is because it is said to lack the component of the plant that causes a person to get high, which is called THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).  

CBD oil extracted from hemp is not supposed to have any more than .3 percent of THC. However, it’s not uncommon for sellers to mislabel their products as THC-free hemp when in reality, it’s a low-quality oil extracted from marijuana, which does contain THC.

Study of CBD Oil

When a drug test is performed, the active chemical in marijuana that gets detected in a positive screening is THC. However, most people are under the impression that CBD oil is THC-free.

Cannabis is the umbrella term describing hemp and marijuana plants—two different varieties of the cannabis genus. Both marijuana and hemp can be described as cannabis plants; however, it is important to note that they are still two separate plants.
