Are you hesitant about implementing Smilyn CBD into your daily routine because it could cause you to fail a drug test?
First, let’s point out that hemp-derived CBD is federally allowed in every state, and licensed companies can commercially distribute CBD products across state lines.
Individual states, however, have the authority to determine whether they want to allow CBD legally. To date, there are only three states in which CBD remains illegal, including Idaho, Nebraska, and South Dakota.
In most cases, the trace amounts of THC found in hemp-derived CBD oil will not produce a positive drug test when the CBD is consumed at suggested servings. If you consume an abnormally large amount of CBD — over 2,000mg per day — a drug test might detect THC.
Hemp CBD Oil vs. Cannabis CBD
While both cannabis and hemp produce CBD, the products derived from hemp and cannabis are entirely different. It’s essential to understand the difference.
CBD oil derived from any cannabis plant with over 0.3 percent THC remains a Schedule 1 substance under federal law.
- Hemp–derived CBD is sourced from industrial hemp plants, which are grown primarily for their fiber and seeds.
- To be federally legal, CBD must contain 0.3% THC or less.
- Cannabis–derived CBD is extracted from marijuana plants that have thick, lush foliage and flowers that are generally grown and consumed for their intoxicating properties.
- Typically contains 0.3% THC or higher.
Drug Tests for THC
Drug testing is a method used to distinguish illegal and prescription drugs in someone’s system.
Urine drug tests, also called urinalysis, check urine for THC metabolites. More complex job positions often use more multifaceted drug screening methods. In this case, they test your blood, hair, or saliva.
These tests work in an identical way as a urinalysis but are more reliable because metabolites stay in your blood and hair much longer than urine. To revisit the question, CBD can show up on a drug test if enough THC is present. In rare cases, CBD could point to a positive drug test.
It is entirely dependent on the product’s quality and composition. No fear, our trusted Smilyn lab is here!
To avoid using products that may have more THC in them than they should, make sure your CBD brands offer a Certificate of Analysis (COA) to verify the cannabinoid contents of the products you’re consuming.
