CBD Detection in Drug Tests

June 24, 2019

 

CAN CBD BE DETECTED IN A DRUG TEST?

If you or someone else gets hurt on the job, the company is expected to pay for it. The U.S. Labor Dept. has reported that drug and alcohol abuse in the workplace causes 65% of on-the-job accidents and that 38% to 50% of all workers' compensation claims are related to the abuse in workplace. Due to the high liability of drug using employees for companies, failing a drug test could result in disciplinary actions that may include termination.

CBD has become quite popular in the last few years, and for good reason: it has shown to reduce pain, nausea, inflammation, spasms, intestinal contractions, artery blockage, tumor cell growth and more all without causing a high. Unfortunately, CBD is made from cannabis which naturally contains THC, the substance responsible for the psychoactive properties of illicit marijuana. 

CBD made from hemp can contain up to 0.3% THC, which is a low enough content that ensure users of CBD will not become impaired; and will likely not show up in drug tests. However, long periods of CBD use could cause accumulation in the body which may trigger a positive test. 

If you use CBD products and are subject to drug testing on your job, we suggest periodic self-testing to ensure you know your status. We provide the same panel tests conducted by doctors and clinics used by employers.
