But Could CBD Make You Fail a Drug Test?

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a non psychoactive compound produced by the marijuana plant that seems to be everywhere these days. Maybe you’ve even been asked if you’d like it added to your morning cup of joe! THC, also marijuana-derived, is what gets people high and is screened for by drug tests. The chemical structure of THC is very similar to CBD’s, which begs the question: Could using CBD make you fail a drug test? In this episode of Reactions we break down the chemistry behind the possibilities.

Does hemp contain real cbd?????

A commonly used test at many labs can erroneously come back positive for marijuana metabolites when a person uses CBD oil. The drug testing method in question involves a common chemical analysis device called a gas-chromatography mass-spectrometry, or GC-MS, machine when it uses derivatization chemical agents such as trifluoroacetic anhydride, or TFAA, 

According to the 2012 journal article, TFAA when used by a GC-MS machine was unable to discern between CBD and THC. If a person who used only CBD were given a drug test that employed this device, method and chemical, the results would falsely report the presence of THC.

LabCorp’s has a test 701907; Cannabidiol (CBD)/Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) Ratio, Urine use is: To assist in distinguishing whether a positive urine THC test is exclusively the result of CBD use. 

Please search it, learn and spread the word to avoid others being wrongfully accused.
Also read “CBD or THC? Common Drug Test Can’t Tell the Difference” from the New York Times.

got the same cbd strain twice a #2 and the flavor was a lot better terp wise the second time ..growers are getting better at it

You can fail a drug test using CBD I did

Certain types of CBD oil will definitely make you fail a urine test looking for THC metabolites! This has happened several times that I know of ...and it can happen to you is you're not careful.

Extremely unlikely. Yup, that about sums it up. As far as I know, there is 1 legally recognized test that can easily produce a false positive. Gas chromatography adds a solution to the samples as part of the process. One very common testing solution makes it nearly impossible to tell CBD apart from THC.
Best to cover your a. by listing everything on the official forms for the test and holding on to your packaging in case your boss sees an issue. Good packs show "NO THC", or some such, prominently all over the product.

I pissed tested high for THC after taking CBD oil for a month! The Dr said it was ok to take and now? I'm I trouble! Do not take CBD IF u get drug tests!!!!

Look up Cannabis Oil Protocol in practice l Cannafest 2015 there are many testamonies as a cure for Cancers CBD Helps a lot but the true cure is High THC Grow your own look up Rick Simpson Oil on how to produce your own medicine it is life changing Lots of evidence and medical testamonies please look it up you will not be disappointed if you have a family member with cancer pass it on or paste it on all channels.

I have never smoked weed in my life and only vape CBD and I failed my drug test.....that’s why I’m here

Lost my job in the oil field because of CBD oil

There are 10s of thousands of People out there that have failed their drug test due to the use of CBD oil’s. So if you get drug tested it’s best to stay away from it unless you’re using it as a topical application

I took cbs for the first time tonight and i feel fine with my bread being cheaper than if i wanted to . This comes after suffering with me and 5 people came to the show and wow what an amazing cat liquorice shape of birds broken halo rice .

In overview isn’t vaping the printing or the way you walk doing broken things haha

So great but hey man how are them

Word to the wise. If your on probation then just go cold turkey. CBD flower will most def make you fail. I know from experience.

Only sure way not to get ANY thc would be a cbd isolate and that's back to the lab and beakers, screw that. Hemp is not medicine anyways and why you cannot buy cbd oil derived from hemp, in states like California & Colorado, and that's because their is no proof that cbd that has come from hemp actually has ANY medical benefits. It may mirror the molecule but it's not the sane plain and simple. This country needs to wake up and stop being smothered to death by greedy men, woman, and their need for profits over that of a fruitful and healthy life, and or any beliefs for they have NONE. GOOD LUCK TO ALL... 😆 🎄🍄🌴🌵🍁🏄👽🎄🌴✌ my animation for the season... Happy Healthy Hemp FUELED Bodies...

Terrible video. Haha

Hempworx has 3rd party testing. What they say is what you get

My own CBD experience was interesting. I heard about how it helps with ADHD and anxiety, so I got some to try it out. It didn't do anything for the ADHD and only slightly helped with the anxiety, but it completely eliminated chronic inflammation in my knees. I've had bad knees for years and it is just gone now. I just take 2 drops on my tongue a few times a day and have zero knee pain. One thing that your video neglected to mention is that CBD oil is thought to only be efficacious when in a "Full-Spectrum" of other Cannabinoids, which includes a trace amount of THC. So anyone who wants any benefit from CBD is going to have to have a tiny amount of THC in the deal. If drug tests are a concern you should not even bother with CBD at all.

You lost me as soon as you start with jokes about the munchie. Not all strains of cannabis cause the munchies and some types of THC actually reduce hunger.

Potheads: CBD is not psychoactive
Also potheads: Try my new CBD sleeping pills
me: wait...

Great info shared at 2:18. The CBD industry needs transparency. 👍👍 You've got a new subscriber

How about instead of letting companies get a way with shit like this.. just legalize weed nation wide already.

My cats are on CBD oil for different health issues - in one case, quite impressive pain control/anti-inflammatory effects I would not have believed without seeing it myself, and the only side effect has been lower anxiety. Since THC is emphatically not safe for cats (or dogs), making sure that we get a product that will not do them harm is a high priority. That there is any potential for one to turn into the other is food for thought, but feline stomach acid is very different from human. Anyway, thanks for the info!

Once again, thank you for the video, it was very informative. Regardless, it still is a shame THC is illegal. No plant should be

I've taken CBD oil and CBD products for YEARS to help with my chronic pain. I get tested every 6 months and have NEVER came up positive. I only buy from Select cbd and Green Roads World. Green Roads is the only pharmacutical company that makes tinctures, oils and compounds by pharmacists. Both have 3rd party batch testing. You have to know where your hemp comes from. If it's not grown right and if your plant gets a bud it's now creating THC. If a male and female plant are close, thc is created. Poor processing also allows thc to come through if it's not a hemp plant. I prefer co2 extraction because it used whole plant nutrients. If we wait for the FDA to approve CBD, it will take years and millions and millions of dollars. Then it's controlled by the government which will cost consumers more. $60.00 for a 350 mg 10-15ml bottle is outrageous enough. There's very very few OTC meds approved by the FDA that can help with a multitude of problems that isn't controlled by big Pharma. Know your source, don't buy synthetic, get batch reports. It's a daily thing. Different doses do different things. There's no one size fits all and there never will be. It's not Tylenol. You have to experiment with doses.

18% is less than 1 in 5, not more.

0:50 do you ever use cannabis? The feeling of THC is more like relieved, happy, calm, floaty, relaxed, maybe hungry 😋, maybe sleepy 😴, maybe satiated, maybe active and more mostly positive feelings for most people most of the time.

Lol not here in Canada.

Yes. Next question.

If yo eat cbd it will undergo a process called 'acid-catalyzed addition of an alcohol' and it becomes thc. In other words it reacts with itself with the assistance of stomach acid to make thc. You will fail!

0:22 The bread is having the time of its life

Thank you very much

Thank you for the information on such a hot taboo topic to talk about in public, especially here in small town, usa.

How serendipitous. This just came out right when I started taking CBD oil on my doctor's advice
