Will I Fail a Random Drug Test If I Use CBD Products?
CBD oils can be purchased legally almost everywhere, but we frequently encounter individuals who claim their failed drug tests are a “false positive” because they use Cannabidiol (CBD oil) for legitimate health reasons. CBD oil is becoming increasingly popular for chronic pain relief, and many individuals claim that it offers the health benefits of hemp and cannabinoids without the mind-altering effects associated with marijuana usage. Many individuals enjoy using natural remedies in addition to or in place of prescription medication, but will CBD oil make you fail a drug test?
Here are the answers to some of the most common questions we receive about CBD oils, and our team at First Choice is a phone call or a mouse click away if we didn’t answer your question in the section below.
Is CBD oil safe for me to use? CBD products are available for sale at drugstores, convenience stores, and other retail locations, and you should read all safety information on the label before your purchase. At this time, Epidiolex is the only CBD product that has been approved by the FDA for medical treatment. If you use unregulated CBD oil without direct medical supervision, you’ll be doing so at your own risk!
Will CBD Oil relieve my pain? CBD oil is used for relief from chronic pain, and some individuals use it to treat cancer symptoms, anxiety, or depression.
Can CBD products lead to a failed drug test? A SAMHSA-certified positive for THC is 15 ng/ml or higher, meaning a result of 14 ng/ml or lower would be reported as negative. We’re unable to pinpoint the THC source during the testing process but are obligated to report positive results. It is possible for trace amounts of THC to be present in over-the-counter CBD oils, but most individuals who claim that a result is a false positive have levels significantly higher than 15 ng/ml.
