One of the main reasons that so many people are hesitant in taking CBD is because they are afraid of passing a drug screen. If your employer conducts random drug tests, it is important to get the facts before buying or using anything. This is a basic part of CBD 101 that you should really be familiar with.

Does CBD Show Up on Drug Tests?

A vast majority of drug tests are not even designed to look for cannabidiol (CBD). There are, however, some CBD products on the market that contain THC. Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC is the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. It is one of the most common things that a standard drug test looks for.

Buying CBD Products

If you want to use CBD but don’t want to fail a drug test, you need to be careful about what you buy. It is important that you only buy CBD products from a reputable company that offers lab results or a Certificate of Analysis. This way you will know exactly how much THC, if any, is in each product.

No Borders Naturals is one of the most well-known and trusted CBD brands on the market today. All of our company’s products come with guaranteed lab results to ensure the best overall quality, THC levels, and more. You will also have the assurance that each products Lab Test is certified through CBD Lab Chain. This entails our lab test being hosted on the blockchain to provide an unchangeable, transparent record for you to view before, after, or during the point of purchase.

When you buy from a reputable CBD vendor, you won’t have to worry about taking CBD and passing a drug screen. You also will not have to worry about receiving mislabeled or contaminated products. It is perhaps the most effective way to avoid losing your job.

You should never buy any CBD products from a company that does not provide you with detailed information for all of them. There is simply too much for you to lose, regardless of how low the prices may be.

Take the time to carefully read the label or online product information before purchasing any CBD products. This will give you the best chances of taking CBD and passing a drug screen.

CBD Isolate

CBD isolate products only contain cannabidiol, and it is the best option if you want to pass a random drug screen. These products do not have any other cannabinoids, terpenes or anything else in them.

Broad Spectrum CBD

You can also buy broad spectrum CBD, which has every other cannabinoid with the exception of THC. You therefore won’t have to worry about whether or not you are going to test positive on a drug screen for work or something else.

Full Spectrum CBD

Full spectrum CBD can have THC in it, but not all Full Spectrum does have THC. The ones that do are usually very tiny quantities. What’s great about No Borders Naturals is there are lab test to show no THC in our 500MG Full Spectrum Tincture.

Use a Home Drug Test

If you are really worried about failing a workplace drug test, you can always pick up a home testing kit to see how your body registers the CBD you’ve consumed. You can get these kits from most drugstores as well as online. This will give you a good idea as to whether or not you will come up clean when it really counts.

Make sure that you follow all of the instructions for the drug testing kit so you get accurate results. You may want to use two kits just in case you get a false positive result the first time.

Consume CBD in Moderation

When you know that you have a drug screening coming up, you should try to limit your CBD consumption. Even if the product you are using only has a tiny bit of THC, it can build up over time. It is therefore a good idea to use only a little bit until after your drug screening has been completed. This will help to minimize your chances of testing positive for drugs.

How Long Does CBD Stay in Your System?

The fact is that we don’t really know how long CBD stays in the human body. There is a lot more information on the duration of THC.

You will need to consider how the drug screening is being conducted. For example, a hair sample can be used to detect the presence of THC up to 90 days after consumption. 

This can have a significant impact on whether or not you will test positive. If you have consumed a lot of CBD with some THC in it over the past few months, you could fail the test. 

You would have to consume a lot of CBD though, assuming there are only minute traces of THC in the products. While most drug screens use urine, you shouldn’t necessarily count on this to be the case.

Final Thoughts

Those who only use CBD with little to no THC in it are unlikely to fail a drug screen, but it is still possible. You will need to make a point of only buying quality products from reputable companies. It is also a good idea to use CBD in moderation leading up to a drug screen if you have advance notice. This will give you the best chances of passing your test so there aren’t any issues whatsoever.
