Deception: CBD will show up on a drug test
One of the most common questions we receive is whether or not CBD will show up on the results of a drug test.
Obviously, we know that potential users are looking for a simple yes or no answer, but in truth, it’s more of a ‘depends’ situation.
Cannabidiol, or CBD, shouldn’t cause you to fail a drug test.
However, just because it shouldn’t, doesn’t always mean that it won’t. There are many CBD products on the market that contain trace amounts of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the molecule primarily responsible for marijuana’s psychoactive properties.
Depending on the type of product in question as well of its quality, there is a chance that enough THC is present to appear on a drug test; harvesting techniques, refinement process, as well as a number of other factors, contribute to the quality of a CBD product. Every Nature’s Elixir product undergoes strict third-party lab testing for purity and quality so that we can best ensure that only CBD is present in all of our products, not THC.
Low-quality isolates and full-spectrum products have a higher likelihood of containing appreciable amounts of THC, and may affect the results of a drug test. You should always do your research when comparing CBD products to ensure that you know exactly what it is that you’re getting.
Because most CBD products aren’t reviewed or regulated by the Food and Drug Administration, it’s often difficult to determine just what’s in them.
This is why the type of CBD product, as well as where it’s sourced from are so important.
For instance, full-spectrum products may contain varying amounts of THC, and not always in insignificant quantities. It can be difficult to determine just how much is present, particularly when the manufacturer doesn’t disclose the source of their full spectrum extracts.
Broad-spectrum and CBD isolate, on the other hand, have the THC removed in its entirety, making these products much less likely to produce positive results on a drug test.
Understanding the difference between CBD product types, as well as noting the concentration of CBD by volume, are the best means of determining whether or not a product contains molecules other than CBD.
Above all else, make sure that you purchase products from reputable, reliable sources!
