Will CBD Show up on a Drug Test?

It has been found that CBD (cannabidiol) does not show up with commercially available drug tests. However, research suggested that CBN (cannabinol), another chemical found in cannabis plants, does

The cannabinoid CBD is used by many to manage pain and anxiety and to improve sleep. There are many more suggested benefits to using CBD. It can be purchased in a wide range of forms including CBD OilCBD Edibles, and CBD Topicals, to name a few. 

Maybe you have wondered if cannabinoid can make you fail a drug test. 

A US preliminary study from 2017 suggests “no”, CBD will not make you fail a drug test IF the CBD contains no CBD. 

Will CBD be visible on a drug test? 

CBD is considered to unlikely show up on a drug test. If you are in a job that requires random drug testing, we recommend you use our Broad-Spectrum products only. 

Most commercial drug tests are screening for the presence of THC, the psychoactive compound in cannabis that causes a ‘high’, rather than CBD. Please keep in mind that CBD containing less than 0.3% of THC is legal in all 50 states, as long as it is hemp derived.

A drug test for sports or employment purposes is not likely to pick it up Broad Spectrum CBD. Commercial drug tests are designed to detect THC, and can sometimes pick up other cannabinoids such as CBN as these are a derivative of THC. 

CBD is known to be chemically distinct from THC. Broad Spectrum CBD (contains no THC) is therefore very unlikely to be picked up.

Can THC in CBD Oil be Detected by Drug Tests? 

Different types of drug tests possess different levels of detection. However, use of our Broad Spectrum CBD oil, which contains just CBD and nothing else, will always show up as clean on any drug test.  

However, Full Spectrum CBD oil products contain detectable, yet legal (less than 0.3%) traces of THC, which may cause you to fail a workplace drug test. Please check the rules and regulations, pertaining to your particular place of employment.

It is possible for traces of THC in Full Spectrum products to accumulate through regular use and be detected in a drug test. CBD products containing less than 0.3% THC are legal for personal use within all 50 states.

Buying Legal CBD Products – US CBD Regulation:

“Adding to the confusion is the source of CBD. The 2018 Farm Bill defined “hemp” as Cannabis Sativa plants containing 0.3% or less THC, and “marijuana” as Cannabis Sativa plants containing more than 0.3% THC. Based on the 2018 Farm Bill, only CBD products derived from hemp plants are legal to sell, possess, and use. This means that — despite being the same substance — the source of your CBD is the difference between it being legal or not.”

All of our products at Leaves of Eden CBD are derived from Organically Grown Hemp and contain less than 0.3% THC and are therefore legal in all 50 states.

Does the FDA approve the use of CBD products?

  • In December 2018, the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (also known as the Farm Bill) allowed the use of CBD from hemp as long as it had less than 0.3% of THC content present.

  • The 2018 Farm Bill came with a set of rules on the cultivation of hemp, stating that cannabinoids obtained from the plant are only allowed under certain requirements.

  • Each state in the U.S. has policies regarding industrial hemp. Texas, for instance, allows the growing and cultivation of the plant while Idaho considers its production illegal.”
