True or False: Does CBD Show Up on a Drug Test?
April 12, 2020 by CBD Cave
The short answer: It’s complicated! The longer answer is a little more complicated. While CBD itself will not show up on a drug test, the CBD product you’re taking may. Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is a component in the hemp and marijuana plant. CBD has been shown to have a plethora of positive effects on the body and even more benefits.
CBD has many amazing benefits for us and our furry companions, but it’s important to know what we are consuming. This plays a major factor in picking the right product for yourself and your situation. Purchasing CBD isn’t always easy, and knowing what you’re receiving as a consumer can be difficult. That’s why we’re here.
Shopping For Your CBD
Although the legalization of CBD is nationwide at this point, that doesn’t mean all CBD products are safe options for you. Many companies still drug test their employees and it’s a concern for both parties involved.
There are so many terms thrown around when talking about CBD; you’ll commonly see CBD Isolate, Broad-Spectrum CBD and Full-Spectrum CBD. CBD isolate is pure CBD, that’s it! CBD isolate is 100% cannabidiol that has been removed from its fellow cannabinoids and can be infused into many types of products. Broad-Spectrum CBD is a product that has the full range of cannabinoids that exist in a hemp plant but the THC has been removed. Full-Spectrum CBD is hemp-derived and none of the cannabinoids have been removed, which means there is .3% THC or less in your product.
If you’re worried about a drug test you should be weary of Full-Spectrum CBD.
You can’t always trust a label outright. It’s always a great idea to do some research of your own on a company and product.
Review The Lab Reports
When shopping for your CBD products it is incredibly important to check the lab reports that come with it. To verify what’s actually in your CBD most companies send their products out for testing prior to releasing them for purchase and consumption.
If you are worried about passing a drug test this is even more important for you to check. Just because a label says that a product contains no THC, that isn’t necessarily true. Some products will contain trace amounts of THC that can build up in your system over time and will show a positive result on a drug test.
By checking the lab reports that are publicly made available by CBD companies you can safely choose what product is best for you, and ensure that the amount of CBD they are claiming to have in a product is actually true!
We always verify the products on our site and ensure you’re receiving the highest quality CBD products.
Some products claim to be broad-spectrum or THC free – in reality, that may not always be the case. There are companies that are using these terms to label their products regardless of what lab reports say. If you can’t easily find the lab reports for a product you are interested in purchasing from a company, always reach out to them for assistance!
Although many companies nowadays are posting their lab report results directly on their website for you to view. Each batch should be tested for safety and the cannabinoid levels it holds.
