It is not unusual for drug tests to be conducted on an individual for one reason or the other. In many cities and states, policemen are often subjected to drug test. Employers may also require their employees to take drug tests as part of their ethical standards. Athletes competing in sporting events may also be required to take drug tests so as to allow for free and fair competition.

If you are an employee for a company that happens to conduct drug tests on a regular basis then you could find yourself in very big trouble by failing the test. Also, if you are a professional athlete, failing just even a single drug test could put your career in serious jeopardy for the rest of your life.

Looking at how impactful the results of a drug test could be on a person’s career and life as a whole it is very likely that one may feel apprehensive about using CBD because of its association with cannabis. For those concerned about whether or not the presence of CBD in one’s system could make you fail a drug test, we are going to clear the air on the subject matter.

A drug test is simply a test conducted to discover whether there are drugs in the system of an individual. There are many type of drug test including;
• Saliva tests
• Urine tests
• Blood tests
• Hair follicle test

Most drug tests conducted on an individual are taken to detect the presence of THC in the person’s system. Now, it is important to note that CBD and THC are two very different compounds. CBD is extracted from the hemp plant and contains a very minute amount of THC, often 0.3 5% or even less. CBD oil derived from the marijuana plant may contain a considerable amount of THC and can result in a failed drug test.

Can you fail a drug test because of CBD hemp oil?
It is true that CBD hemp oil contains a very minimum amount of THC and even very likely to show up in a drug test. However, this is not always the case. One particular reason why people may always fail a drug test after having taken in CBD hemp oil is that the product they bought was slightly different from what had been initially advertised to them. In cases like this, it is very possible that the CBD hemp oil was actually produced from a source that had more THC in it than it actually should.

Of course, manufacturers are more concerned about how much they are raking in and couldn’t possibly care less whether or not they are complying with the legal statutes. This is why it is always advisable to purchase from reputable sellers. Another reason why someone may fail a drug test even if he/she used CBD hemp oil is that it was used heavily. True, it contains only up to 0.3% of THC as compared to the 10-20% of the THC found in recreational cannabis products but think about it; using increased doses of CBD hemp oil on a regular basis is going to cause the build-up of THC in your system and eventually cause you to fail a drug test even though you didn’t deliberately seek out THC.

Considering how beneficial CBD is in terms of its therapeutic prowess, it’d be sad if you lost your job or faced time behind bars simply because you used CBD. So, when purchasing CBD hemp oil, always make sure to be circumspect and ask the seller for as much details of the product as you can, including the availability of lab reports. Ensure that THC levels of the product are anything but more than 0.3%
