Will cbd isolate fail a drug test

Consuming pure CBD, also known as a CBD Isolate, which has no THC or other cannabinoids, will NOT result in a positive test. The reason why CBD isolates do not contain THC or other cannabinoids is because they are removed during the extraction process, and just the CBD is isolated resulting in pure CBD.

This is a common question asked by many customers and a topic worthy of elaboration. First off, drug tests are performed to test for the presence of illegal or prescription drugs. Drug tests are often administered when an individual is starting a new job, they could be conducted randomly by your place of work, or could be given if you were involved in an accident during work hours. So, it’s important to understand your companies drug testing policies.

Typically, one of the panels tested is THC or tetrahydrocannabinol, which is a prevalent cannabinoid found in marijuana. Common drug tests must detect at least 50 ng/ml of THC for it to be considered a positive result. Therefore, it’s important to mitigate the risks that could potentially cause a positive result.

So, does CBD cause you to fail a drug test? The simple answer is maybe.

Now, if you consume Full-Spectrum CBD oil, which means the whole hemp plant including THC is used to produce the CBD oil, then you need to be cautious during a drug test. Full-Spectrum CBD oil can legally contain 0.3% THC or less, which has great medicinal benefits when combined with CBD and other cannabinoids. However, that 0.3% THC will leave trace amounts of THC in your body, which can accumulate over time depending on an individual’s metabolism. If the typical drug test is looking to detect 50 ng/ml of THC to be a positive result, then the THC level from a full-spectrum is below that threshold. To understand the exact levels of THC in your Full-Spectrum CBD Oil, always verify the test results.

To mitigate the risk for individuals that cannot have any traces of THC in their system at any time, we will always recommended seeking a CBD Isolate as previously mentioned. You can learn more about the difference of Full-Spectrum, and Isolate CBD on our blog, “What is the Difference Between Full-Spectrum, Broad-Spectrum, and Isolate CBD OIL?”

Although we don’t know how long CBD will show up in a theoretical test, THC can show up anywhere from three to 30 days .

Having so many other critical compounds is vital for the “entourage effect” – a synergistic relationship where cannabinoids and terpenes complement each other. The process helps increase CBD oil’s potency.

Full-spectrum results shouldn’t show any higher than 0.3% THC. Isolate and broad-spectrum should show non-detectable levels of THC or “ND.”

Since CBD is federally legal and doesn’t impair or artificially improve athletic performance, there is no reason organizations need to test for CBD. It would be a waste of time and money.

So the best way to pass a drug test when using CBD oil is to avoid products with THC. Sounds pretty straightforward, but this is where “buyer beware” should always be at the back of your mind.

Blood tests aren’t the primary choice, but they still get used to testing for illicit substances like THC. No test exists explicitly designed for CBD. Unfortunately, this means we can only guess based on THC.

Third-party lab reports are a must-have before you buy from a CBD company. Having no lab reports is a huge red flag. Never buy from a company that doesn’t prove what they’re selling.

Like full-spectrum, the broad-spectrum oil extraction process aims to keep every cannabinoid and terpene except THC, making it THC-Free. With compounds to fuel the entourage effect and no THC to trigger a drug test, broad-spectrum offers the best of both worlds.

Mislabeled CBD products were (and likely still are) a huge issue. When the Food and Drug Administration tested several CBD products , about 70% contained more or less CBD than advertised, while some didn’t have any CBD.
