WILL CONSUMABLE CBD PRODUCTS CAUSE A FAILED DRUG TEST?
Both Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD) are two of at least 113 cannabinoids identified in cannabis. THC is innately present in trace amounts in hemp plants. The current legal limit of THC allowed in) CBD products in the United States is .3% or less. That’s less than half of a percent and although that seems minute and low risk… each person’s biochemistry and conversion of cannabinoids is different and the science behind the conversion of certain cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD, is not fully understood yet. Much like the poppy seed you consume in such foods like bagels, and the risk of a positive opioid test, there just isn’t enough research to prove if a positive or negative test result for the .3% or lower THC that exists in CBD products. So, with that said… the possibility of trace, YET LEGAL AMOUNTS, of THC that are in hemp products would suggest that before consuming CBD oils or any products derived from hemp for that matter, you consult with your health care practitioner first about your risks of a failed THC positive drug test..
