Does CBD Show up on a Drug Test?

There is no reason for Cannabidiol/ CBD to show up on a drug test, but products are available on the market that may have traces of THC. Some of our products even have the allowed 0.3% THC that is legal to sell. The ratio of THC (if it exceeds) may show up on the drug test. However, it is very rare that CBD would show up at all.

Your main concern should be the composition and quality of the products that you are opting for.

Different Types of CBD

Cannabidiol/ CBD comes from cannabis which is a family of plants. Cannabis contains over 100 naturally occurring compounds whose composition is different in each plant.

Compounds

  • Cannabinoids
  • Terpenes
  • Flavonoids
  • Will these compounds appear in a drug test?

    These particular compounds may not appear in your drug test. The tests are normally for the presence of THC metabolites and not for CBD specifically.

    THC metabolites is a type of chemical that your body metabolizes when you ingest it, so it is detectable, but the test is not designed to detect CBD or other substances or compounds of cannabis.

    Conclusion

    We need to understand CBD and THC both have different chemical compositions. To pass a drug test, you will need to avoid any THC including the products with 0.3% and less. Although it is legal for us to sell, it will still get into your blood stream and show up on a drug test.
