So, the question is: does CBD show up/test positive on a drug test? And, this is one of the most common questions regarding CBD treatment. The answer? Almost always, typically no. Many standard drug tests detect THC, methamphetamine, and opiates, among other substances. THC is what is typically being tested for; however, in states where CBD (Cannabidiol) is not legal- there are CBD oil drug tests that are sometimes used.
Let’s explore more, shall we?
Both THC and CBD are derived from the hemp plant, however, they are two completely separate substances. So, does CBD show on drug tests? No, this is exactly why CBD does not show a positive test result for THC.
Why use CBD?
CBD is typically used for varying medical conditions such as epilepsy, anxiety, depression, IBD, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, and more. CBD treatment is becoming popular for those looking for a more holistic and natural approach to treat many conditions.
Whole Plant CBD vs. Isolated CBD: What’s the difference?
The two types of CBD available are called full-spectrum CBD (whole plant CBD) and CBD Isolate. Both of these CBD treatments are typically available as tinctures, e-liquids (for vaping), edibles, pills, and more.
CBD isolate aka “whole-plant” is pure CBD isolated from all of the other cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. Including THC. In short, pure, unadulterated CBD goodness. CBD isolate will never test positive for THC on drug tests.
Full-spectrum CBD includes some or all of the other cannabinoids of the hemp plant. Sometimes this will include THC. Full-spectrum CBD products have the possibility of showing positive on drug tests stemming from the amount of THC in the product.
Well, the long and short of it is, Full Spectrum CBD can be questionable when it comes to testing positive for THC. If you have concerns about being drug tested you would likely want to choose lab-tested CBD isolates that will never test positive for THC.
All of the wellness that CBD can provide, with none of the worries!
