Medical CBD oil would never show up on drug testing. It cannot be traced in urine, hair, nails or saliva tests.
Despite that fact, there are some reasons as to why the test can have a false positivity in certain occasions. In this article we will try to explain what may be the reason for it, how to avoid some risks and more.
In which cases may the test be positive?
Some drug test might be positive simply from a small percentage of THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) being in the CBD oil that they used.
For those who are unfamiliar with all of this, earlier we explained what is CBD oil specifically as well as differences between CBD and THC. Generally, CBD is non-addictive and it’s also not psychoactive, plus, there are plenty of benefits of using it for many different purposes, from medical reasons to beauty and food industry.
The percentage of THC in CBD products mostly depends on the product’s quality and composition. When the quality is lower it’s possible to have a bit of THC in your product without knowing it, which could affect your testing latter.
Where the CBD extract comes from and how it’s extracted might make THC contamination more likely. There is a smaller possibility for certain types of CBD to have THC in them.
Mostly, you’ll see types of CBD extract classified as:
- Full-spectrum CBD
- Broad-spectrum CBD
- CBD isolate.
It’s important to know that only CBD isolate is pure CBD. It usually comes from hemp plants and it doesn’t contain additional compounds from the herb. The problem is that full-spectrum CBD is the most popular type on the market and it’s the reason good enough to be careful when choosing your product.
So, let’s underline it:
Pure CBD won’t be detected on a test, but in unfortunate cases, reasons for a positive test can be:
- The strength and composition of the CBD
- Brand labeling
- Secondhand exposure to THC.
What can you do to avoid the risk?
As you may have guessed until now, some products are safer than others and it’s crucial to take time when choosing the right ones. We suggest the following:
- Read the product description
- Ensure that CBD is pure
- Check where hemp-derived products come from and what are the extraction methods
- Do thorough research about the company or ask them questions if you have any
- Consider quality over affordability
- Avoid secondhand exposure to THC (marijuana) when possible.
If you want to buy CBD oil or any specific product, when evaluating it, you should look for these terms to be sure that it is safe to use:
- USDA-certified organic
- pesticide- or herbicide-free
- no additives
- no preservatives
It’s not always easy to tell if those claims are true but at last, you won’t consider buying the product without them which will save you time.
