If you have decided to take CBD, but work somewhere with a random drug test, you might be concerned. It’s understandable that you wouldn’t want your pain free periods to come at the cost of your job.
In this blog, we will answer the question “will CBD show up on a drug test” as well as explain more about what is in CBD oil.
Will CBD show up on a drug test?
When you have a drug test they are testing for illegal substances, such as THC. They will not be testing for CBD. However, some CBD does contain trace amounts of THC (less than 0.2%).
If you buy full spectrum CBD it will contain the cannabinoid CBD, terpenes and a very tiny amount of THC. This is just down to the way in which it is extracted. It won’t have psychoactive effects. However, it could show up on a super-sensitive drug test.
Our Remedy CBD oil is broad-spectrum. Broad-spectrum means that it contains CBD and terpenes, without any THC. This is ideal if you work somewhere with very sensitive testing, or if you are worried.
What are terpenes and do they show up on a drug test?
Terpenes are found within plant matter. They have various therapeutic benefits and many we use in everyday life.
You will find terpenes in cleaning products, make-up, and candles. They are a natural way to give things color, scent and have bonus effects, such as insect repellents.
Terpenes will not show up on a drug test as they are not illegal.
Will broad-spectrum be good for me?
Terpenes work in synergy with CBD. This means that they can help to combat other issues as well as boost the work CBD does. For example, terpenes can help with reducing anxiety, pain, nausea, inflammation and more.
Broad-spectrum allows you to enjoy the added benefits, without any THC. Zero THC means zero chance of you being pulled up for a positive drug test.
Final thoughts – Will CBD show up on a drug test?
If you are really concerned then we suggest you buy broad-spectrum CBD or CBD isolate. Avoid anything with THC listed in the contents to be on the safe side.
However, unless your drug testing is super sensitive then you shouldn’t be pulled up for it.
