The Question Heard Around the Nation – “Does CBD Show Up on a Drug Test?”

The Question Heard Around the Nation – “Does CBD Show Up on a Drug Test?”

April 10, 2019

The quick and dirty answer for this question is, no. CBD generally does not show up on a drug test because most drug tests don’t screen for CBD. This is the case if you consume CBD via edible means or through smoking. However, be careful if you decide to smoke CBD flower—while the CBD won’t show up on the drug test, there is a chance that the trace amounts of THC in the CBD flower will.

 

Why, you ask, don’t drug tests generally screen for CBD? Well, its due to a few reasons, but generally its because CBD is the non-psycho active component of cannabis unlike it distinct counter-part, THC. Theoretically, if a test is screening for CBD, it will be able to find it and its metabolite compounds in the test. However, since CBD doesn’t affect your mental state and employers additionally would have to use a very specific test that costs a little extra for them, going through this extra work and money to test for CBD isn’t worth it to employers.

 

So, go ahead, use that CBD—but like we said, be careful if you use products that have even trace amounts of THC in it. That THC could pop up and cause you to fail.
