One of the most frequently asked questions we receive is "I have a drug test coming up, will using GoGreen Hemp CBD products cause me to fail the test?" The short answer is "NO, you will not fail a CBD oil drug test using our broad-spectrum products", however, we urge you to read why not and things to avoid when choosing which CBD brand to go with because not all CBD is created equal.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-intoxicating compound that is found in both marijuana and hemp plants. It is one of the most prominent cannabinoids found in the natural plant and is sister to its infamous counterpart tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). CBD can be categorized into three types: Isolate, Broad Spectrum & Full Spectrum. Knowing the type of product you are planning to use will determine the chances of you failing a drug test.
Isolate CBD will have "pure" CBD with no THC and NONE of the other beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes that "pure" CBD needs to balance it out to render medicinal benefits. In simplest form, this is the rawest type of CBD extract.
Broad Spectrum means that it has the natural beneficial cannabinoid and terpenes but NO THC. Due to it's "NO THC" presence, this type of CBD oil has rapidly become popular and taken the market by storm as it is hassle-free when it comes to it being transported or for those worried about failing drug tests. Broad Spectrum CBD should always have 0% THC according to third party laboratory results and will not trigger a failed drug test.
Full Spectrum means it also has the beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes, however, it will have THC. Hence, it can be a little tricky when it comes to this product being shipped or transported through regions that have zero-tolerance for THC. If derived from hemp, the THC in this product should only be up to .3%. If a product contains more than .3% THC it is considered illegal on the federal level and cannot be shipped across state lines.
When using broad-spectrum and isolate products you will not fail a drug test. However, if you are using full-spectrum products you have a relatively high chance of failing a drug test because although these products contain legal amounts of THC, there are still traces, which are enough to sometimes trigger a failed drug test.
Testing for illicit drug use is a controversial topic for people of all ages in numerous industries, varying from athletics to the federal sector. Drug testing is mandatory for any federal job, but even in the private sector drug testing is becoming the norm. The reality is, whether you believe in drug testing or not it will most likely be a part of our lives for the foreseeable future.
Like THC, CBD offers a wide range of relieving benefits. Unlike its counterpart THC, CBD has no intoxicating effects. For people who are looking to take advantage of the medicinal benefits of the cannabis plant without the "high", CBD is the way to go. But being that both are so closely related and that CBD comes from both marijuana and hemp, people are often concerned that they may potentially fail a drug test. When using a Full Spectrum CBD Oil, drug tests will most likely come back as failed.
The bottom line is not all CBD is created equally. There are companies that have completely THC-Free products, while others formulate products that may contain slight traces of THC so that the compounds in cannabis can work more effectively together. But often, these products only carry roughly 0.3% THC or less. Drug tests are ultimately looking for traces of THC, not CBD. However, this does not put you completely in the clear. Some companies do have traces amount of THC in their products, although under the legal limit of .3% these products do have the potential to show up on drug tests. However, for products with very low traces, you would have to take a substantial amount of CBD oil for this to occur.
It is also important to note that on generic at-home tests, CBD can sometimes show up as THC because at the molecular level CBD and THC have very similar compositions. When you use THC-Free products and a drug test is failed, this is considered a "false-positive" meaning that the test has recognized CBD as THC, this can occur with at home field tests. When an employer or the government drug tests, they use significantly more complex instruments and can easily decipher the difference between THC and CBD so the chances of a "false-positive" are very slim.
As the CBD market continues to expand we urge consumers to do more research on the products they are currently and plan on using. We HIGHLY encourage customers to not use any products that aren't third party laboratory tested. Along with third-party laboratory testing, we also encourage customers to choose brands that test by batch to ensure what is on the label is what is in the bottle.
All GoGreen Hemp products are broad-spectrum and contain 0.0% THC, feel free to view our publicly posted third party test results on our website and learn more about our CBD manufacturing process which ensures both potency and purity.
