First Choice Drug Testing

An increasing number of individuals are now using Cannabidiol (CBD oil) products to manage chronic pain, relieve digestive problems, or sleep better without being exposed to the mind-altering effects of marijuana. These products are completely legal to purchase and can be sold at drugstores, convenience stores, and other retailers. Like all other over-the-counter medications, it’s important to read all safety information on the product label and consult with your family doctor before using CBD oils on a regular basis. But will you fail a drug test if you’re using CBD oil for a legitimate medical purpose?

First Choice is Arkansas’ most trusted third-party administrator, and we offer every conceivable lab test at our south Little Rock location. Whether you need to take a pre-employment drug test or set up an account to test your new hires, we offer fast and efficient service and industry-leading turnaround times on all testing results. We keep a Medical Review Officer (MRO) on staff to verify the accuracy of all test results, and our team members are all committed to professionalism and legendary service. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about CBD oils, and we’re always a phone call away if you don’t see the answer to your specific question in the section below.

What is CBD used for? CBD oils are most commonly used to relieve insomnia, chronic pain, and inflammation, and some individuals also use them to treat anxiety and depression.

Is it safe to use CBD products? The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Epidiolex for medical treatment and recommends that it only be used under direct medical supervision. Other over-the-counter CBD products are currently unregulated, and you’ll be using them at your own risk.

Will I fail a drug test if I use CBD products? We’re obligated to report positive results if the sample’s THC content is 15 ng/ml or higher, but we’re unable to pinpoint the source during the testing process. Over-the-counter CBD oils may contain trace amounts of THC, but most individuals who claim false positives have THC levels significantly higher than 20 ng/ml.
