Can CBD make you fail a drugs test?

As a cannabis product it’s entirely natural to wonder if CBD shows up on drugs tests. There’s recently been a lot written on the subject and it’s become something of a hotly debated issue. To say that most CBD products are absolutely free of illegal cannabis compounds such as THC would be inaccurate - even the most responsibly sourced and manufactured CBD products will have a trace amount of other cannabinoids which are considered illegal.

The problem here lies in the way CBD is extracted - it comes as the predominant product when sourced from the industrial hemp plant which is used to grow it, yet also a lot of other trace elements of the many different cannabinoids arrive too - and are even thought to enhance the effectiveness of CBD in something known as the ‘entourage effect’.

Therefore, using CBD products on a very large scale, in amounts delivering up to 1000mg a day, may indeed cause signs of cannabis usage to show up on a drugs test. But to put this in perspective 100mg is a highly concentrated dosage only appropriate for those suffering chronic prolonged pain. For the average consumer, CBD is used on a smaller scale at less than 100mg - so it’s quite rare for anyone to be such consuming a large amount.

Fortunately, there are now more and more fully extracted CBD-only products coming onto the market which are designed to keep the illegal cannabinoids well and truly out of your system - even beyond the reach of specialised drug tests. Another point to consider, in fact, is the way most drug tests do not look for CBD anyway, only a much more specialised comprehensive test would include it in its parameters, and if it did show up, it wouldn’t be considered illegal anyway.

So, to put the concerns of people wondering about drugs tests to rest, we can safely say our CBD products are as low in THC and other non-CBD cannabinoids as we can make them. We’re confident that unless someone were to take an extremely large amount of our CBD oil or other products, they are very unlikely to fail a drugs test.
