Some workplaces are beginning to acknowledge that people utilize cannabis for health and wellness, and have updated their drug policy to reflect this by not testing for THC. Until this becomes a society standard, many people will want to ensure that they can pass a drug test while utilizing CBD products. What you need to know in order to avoid failing a drug test is simple, know the product you need and ask the right questions. Here we will tell you what to avoid, as well as the questions to ask before consuming a product.
What you need to know first is that these tests are searching for the main cannabis molecule that society is familiar with – THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). There are 8 major cannabinoids which can be identified throughout the cannabis plant. CBD products can reflect this same spectrum, depending on how they are manufactured. If a product has small amounts of THC in it, then the person consuming it has a high probability of failing a drug test. A major takeaway here is, if you are worried about a drug test, avoid all THC products.
CBD (Cannabidiol) is the second most well known cannabinoid associated with the cannabis plant.The structure of the CBD molecule is similar to THC, but not the same. The difference is enough to avoid failing a drug test, but there has been evidence that CBD can trigger a “false positive” on a drug test for THC. This may require a deeper analysis of the test, but will not test positive for THC. This means that a person who only utilizes Pure CBD products can safely pass a drug test for THC.

The last thing you need to know to become an expert on this subject, are the differences in the cannabis products available on the market. Not all CBD products are THC free; full spectrum and broad spectrum products contain a very small amount of THC. If you are worried about passing a drug test, it is best to avoid any product with THC in it. The remaining option is Pure CBD products which have no THC. If you are shopping for THC free products a simple question that will keep you safe is “Does this have any THC in it?” or “Is this made from Pure or Full Spectrum CBD?”. When shopping it is your responsibility to ask questions; this is the only way to ensure that you avoid products with trace amounts of THC. Remember that it is legal for CBD products to contain ,03% THC or less. Even this trace amount of THC presents a possibility of failing a drug test.
A major step in protecting yourself is ensuring that your products are third party lab-tested. This is an industry standard in pioneer states like Colorado, but until the industry is evenly regulated it is up to you as the consumer to protect yourself.
