Will CBD Cause Me to Fail a Drug Test?

This is probably the most common question asked by new or prospective CBD Oil users. The answer to this question in its most basic form is “No,” but it isn’t exactly that simple. The reason being is that there are three different varieties of CBD Oil products; and many manufacturer labels fail to clearly specify which type the product is. The three different types of CBD products are Isolate, Full Spectrum, and Broad Spectrum. Broad Spectrum and CBD Isolate products contain 0.0% THC; and will not cause a failed drug test. Full Spectrum CBD formulations may legally contain a maximum of 0.3% THC and can theoretically invoke a false positive drug screen, though it is unlikely.

CBD Isolate

CBD Isolate products contain CBD in its most pure form. Consuming CBD Isolate products will not cause a false positive on a drug screen. Isolate products contain 99.9% CBD and no additional compounds from the Hemp Plant. CBD isolate in its purest form is a crystalline white powder. It is usually dissolved into a carrier oil, such as coconut oil or mct oil, to make it into an easily consumable tincture or other form.

Full Spectrum CBD

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of over a hundred different molecules, known as cannabinoids, which are naturally occurring compounds in the hemp plant. Thus far CBD has been found to have the most significant healing properties. Studies have found numerous other cannabinoids also have beneficial effects on the human body and Endocannabinoid System as well. Full Spectrum CBD products contain a high concentration of CBD; but are also comprised of other cannabinoids such as CBG, CBN, CBDA, and THC. Most people find Full Spectrum CBD to be the most effective form due to the synergistic healing of all included cannabinoids. THC is one of these cannabinoids, but the maximum concentration of THC that can legally be contained in CBD Oil 0.3%. Therefore, consuming Full Spectrum CBD products pose a very small chance of producing a false positive for marijuana on a drug screen. This usually only happens if consumed on a daily basis in high doses.

Broad Spectrum CBD

Broad spectrum CBD products are one of the newest, scientifically engineered, and most popular forms of CBD products. Broad Spectrum CBD consists of high quality CBD Oil Isolate combined with the additional benefits of other cannabinoids, except THC. This complex extraction method yields an extremely high quality of CBD oil capable of producing the “Entourage Effect” associated with the additional cannabinoids; and 0.0% THC. Therefore, Broad Spectrum products with not cause a failed drug test.
