Drug tests are designed to detect the presence of THC, the psychoactive component of marijuana, in the body. Most tests don't measure CBD, so using hemp oil or other related products won't result in a positive drug test result. However, due to the lack of regulation in the CBD industry, it is possible to fail a drug test with a CBD product. This can happen if the product contains higher levels of THC than indicated on the label or if it is contaminated with THC.
Unintentional exposure to marijuana through second-hand smoke is unlikely to be enough for a person to test positive for drugs. To make sure you don't fail a drug test, it's important to choose a hemp oil or other CBD product that doesn't contain THC. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) states that products containing more than 0.3% THC are illegal, and the United States Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) includes them as Schedule I drugs. It's also important to note that the federal government sets the concentration levels of drug screening drugs in the urine. Products produced with hemp seeds have a variable concentration of cannabinoids and their ingestion can result in positive and confirmatory urine screening tests both in the emergency department and in the workplace. Depending on the frequency of consumption, THC can be detected in a test starting from a few days for a single use or more than a month for heavy marijuana smokers on a daily basis. Current results indicate that using hemp-derived products does not always mean that one is risk-free when it comes to drug testing.
Therefore, it's important to be aware of the potential risks associated with consuming CBD products.
