Can You Fail a Drug Test on CBD Oil?

Can You Fail a Drug Test on CBD Oil?
Surprisingly, yes, it is possible to fail a drug test when taking full spectrum CBD, but as we explain throughout this article the likeliness of failing a drug test due to our hemp-derived products, like ours is very low. While hemp and marijuana are members of the cannabis sativa family, hemp only contains trace amounts of THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid that gets you “high.” CBD, on the other hand, promotes a number of therapeutic benefits without the psychoactive effect. On average, users of hemp-derived CBD oil consume 120 to 160 milligrams per day. It would take at least 1,000 to 2,000 milligrams a day of full-spectrum, hemp-derived CBD to indicate a THC intoxication on a drug test. Generally speaking, that’s 5 to 10 bottles of HealthNaturally Hemp Oil Drops a day [1].
 
Full-spectrum hemp-derived CBD products contain THC
 
Full spectrum hemp-derived CBD oil contains the whole hemp plant: Cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and all other phytochemical nutrients, and this includes THC. Legally, hemp-derived CBD may contain up to 0.03% of THC. Although this amount of THC is nowhere near the amount to produce a psychoactive effect, it can result in a failed drug test, depending on how much and how often CBD oil is consumed.
 
What may cause a THC positive drug test?
 
Any time a drug test is issued, testers are searching for drugs like cocaine, heroin, and  marijuana (THC). The most common drug test issued is urinalysis, as it checks for metabolites within the urine. As mentioned before, hemp-derived CBD can legally contain no more than 0.03% of THC [

Theoretically, consuming 1,000 to 2,000 milligrams of full-spectrum, hemp-derived CBD a day would result in the consumption of 3-6 milligrams of THC. Unfortunately, this 3-6 milligrams of THC will test THC positive in a drug test. However, the chances of it showing positive are anywhere from 11% to 23% — not likely, but possible [
3]. In fact, some consumers have reported testing THC positive with consuming as little as 120 milligrams a day, which begs the question:
 
How much do you really know about the CBD product you’ve purchased and the company it came from?
 
Amazingly, the stigma of cannabis consumption is dwindling, which means more companies are jumping on the CBD bandwagon. As more CBD companies surface, more products are developed, causing an enormous saturation in the market. Sadly, due to little or no regulations, not all CBD companies are creating quality CBD products. This is why it’s crucial, as a consumer, to research each product and CBD company you’re considering. According to the FDA, a number of CBD vendors were issued letters indicating that their CBD products were completely mislabeled and misbranded; their CBD products either contained virtually no CBD at all, or tested significantly higher than 0.03% of THC [
4]. This may explain why some consumers have reported testing THC positive on a drug test when consuming no more than 120 milligrams of CBD oil per day.
 
Being educated about a product and company before you buy will ensure you’re consuming the best kind of CBD oil that fits your needs, especially if you’re going to be drug tested. Be sure to check for 100% accuracy when comparing the labels of your CBD products to the company’s lab results of that same product. Reputable CBD companies are transparent, will share their information, and have their customers’ best interests at heart when creating their CBD products.
