Does CBD show up on a drugs test?

Thursday October 14, 2021

Consuming CBD products should not lead to you testing positive on a drugs test. However, the test may show up positive if enough THC is present.

Most CBD products do contain traces of THC as the components technically come from the same plant – cannabis sativa. Whether this will show up on a drugs test will depend on how much THC is in the CBD product you are consuming.

In most regulated CBD products, there are only small traces of THC included which will not make you fail a drugs test. However some unregulated CBD products can include up to 5% of THC and, if used regularly, can lead to you testing positive. With the growing popularity of CBD products and with more brands being added to the market, it is difficult for regulators to keep up. This makes it important for you to check the product before you purchase to find out how they have been made and harvested.

How can you avoid using products with a high THC content?

There are several types of CBD products on the market, and some contain a higher trace of THC than others.

One of the most important things to consider if you are looking for a lower trace of THC in a CBD product is to know how reputable and trustworthy the brand you are purchasing from is. If the company is confident in their product and has nothing to hide, they will ensure all the information the customer needs is visible on their product. Here are some things to look for:

– Information about where the CBD plant comes from and the type of CBD it contains on the product label.

– Details on where the CBD is grown and harvested. Do you know the journey it has taken from seed to the shelf?

– Ask to see the results of the third-party lab reports. If the company is a reputable company, they would have sent their products off for a lab test to test their CBD products for purity and will be able to give you a list of everything their product contains.

All of Sativa Gold’s products are sent to third party testing labs to provide our customers clear and transparent information about each batch.
