The question whether CBD comes up on a drug test is an important issue for all people who use medical marijuana because many companies do not support the use of marijuana among their employees.
In general, drug tests look for THC and its metabolites but not for CBD. THC is an active compound of cannabis that can remain detectable up to ten days after the consumption. This is great news for all patients who use CBD treatment. Unfortunately for people who use THC or the FDA-approved remedy Marinol, the tests may appear a problem.
To help you deal with an upcoming test, MJWellness has already published a great article with plenty of useful information.
So, the answer to the main question of our article is "no, CBD will not come up on your next drug test." However, there are some aspects to look out for.
First of all, large doses of hemp oil might show THC on a drug test. If you consume hemp oil that meets the standards, you can use a maximum of 180 mg a day.
Usually, there are two drug tests. The initial one may show a false positive, so the second test will take place. The cutoff level of the first test in 50 ng/mL. The cutoff level of the second one is 15 ng/mL. The second test is always more accurate.
When buying marijuana-infused products, you have to be aware of the content of THC in them. Even a CBD supplement can contain a small percentage of THC. The legal standard is no more than 0.3 percent of THC. In addition, if a product was made from a pressed whole plant cannabis extract, you have to search the information about the specific strain and the amount of THC it contains.
In conclusion, we can say that CBD is perfectly safe for any drug test you may be obliged to undergo. However, it all depends on the product you use as some of them may contain a tiny bit of THC in them.
