One of the biggest questions regarding CBD is if it shows up on a drug test. It’s an honest question as many of us don’t want to get in trouble with our jobs, or other accidents. Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the most useful compounds found in the cannabis plant. When you combine it with a healthy lifestyle, it can help support overall wellbeing. But, because of its roots from the cannabis plant, many customers wonder about employment, especially if given routine drug screenings.
Typically, employers that conduct drug screenings do not test for CBD metabolites. On the other hand, they definitely test for THC, which is the intoxicating compound found in cannabis. To save you the time, the short answer is no. CBD itself should not trigger a positive drug test. That is, depending upon the type of CBD you’re consuming and if the label actually matches what’s in the bottle.
If you’re using a full-spectrum CBD product, there’s a possibility that you could test positive for THC in a drug screening. This is because THC can be found in small quantities in full-spectrum CBD products.
It’s important to note that this can be avoided if you take a closer look at how your CBD was cultivated and produced. Make sure that the company offers certificates of analysis and a detailed ingredient list for each product.
How Can It Trigger a Positive Test?
Due to the natural process of hemp cultivation and product, CBD can contain trace amounts of the psychoactive molecule THC. Due to the Farm Bill of 2018, hemp plants in the United States must have less than 0.3% THC. However, hemp grown elsewhere could potentially have a higher percentage. At Revital Outdoors, we ensure that all trace amounts are removed to provide our customers with a worker-friendly product they can feel confident consuming.
Why is the THC in the CBD?
The United States Congress passed the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp became legal for cultivation. However, it’s very highly regulated with certain benchmarks and guidelines being maintained. Most namely, the hemp plant can’t contain anymore than 0.3% THC on a dry weight basis. That’s why it’s highly important to use skilled botanists and high standards when cultivating the hemp plant.
Some forms of CBD, like full-spectrum, contain trace amounts of THC. However, at Revital Outdoors we use a broad-spectrum hemp that contains 0.0% THC. This can be checked by pulling the third-party lab results for your specific Revital Premium CBD Product.
Can THC End Up in the final CBD product?
When hemp is cultivated, it’s then entered into the extraction and production phase. During this time, producers follow a strict guideline for manufacturing. But, it’s important to note, this process isn’t regulated and could lead to cross-contamination or other issues. Each of these things can impact the amount of THC that is within your product. This is why quality is so important when choosing your CBD. Consuming CBD that’s produced following the highest of standards will ensure that you’re getting exactly what the bottle claims.
How to Tell When It’s Quality CBD?
It might feel daunting to find a CBD company that you can trust. However, with a little research, you’ll be able to decide the brands that you’re interested in placing an order with. Below are some key points to ensure your CBD company has.
A CBD company that has nothing to hide will offer third-party lab testing complete with Certificates of Analysis (COA) on their products. If the company that you find doesn’t offer this, we recommend you continue your search. It’s an extra step for the company to guarantee that their product is exactly what the bottle says. The certificates will document the concentrations of the cannabinoids (including THC.) This is a great way for you to know exactly what you’re consuming.
As we stated above, a reliable CBD company will provide transparency every step of the way. From the cultivation process to handing over third-party lab testing results to it’s consumer. It’s pretty easy to figure out which CBD companies are worth placing your purchase with. Some CBD products have been found to contain potentially harmful ingredients, such as synthetic marijuana. At Revital Outdoors, our ingredients are listed on each product so you can feel comfortable with the product.
