CBD and Drug Test | Will CBD Show Up on a Drug Test?

According to multiple researches, CBD, or cannabidiol, did not react with either of two commercially available tests for marijuana usage screening.

These drug tests usually focus on detecting chemicals that cause impairment. CBD doesn’t cause physical or mental impairment, according to the World Health Organization.

Drug tests are looking for THC, the compound most commonly associated with the hallucinating effects of cannabis, and responsible for the “high” from “marijuana”. CBD, on the other hand, extracted from hemp plants will not get you high. Hemp-derived CBD oil (low/zero THC, high CBD oil) is legal in all 50 states. Hemp based CBD oils, are unlikely to result in a positive test because they don’t contain THC at all or contain it at the levels that are not high enough for detection.

Hemp extracted CBD is being widely used as pain, anxiety treatment, as well as a sleep aid. The FDA recently approved its use to treat severe forms of eilepsy seizures associated with Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome and Dravet Syndrome.

Nowadays, CBD products are everywhere and in all forms. Oils, topical creams for muscle pain relief, cbd protein powders, CBD vape oils even coffees and pastries. Since Congress lifted a decades-old ban on growing hemp and let licensed farmers grow the plant, as long as it contains less than 0.3% THC.
