Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive compound found in both marijuana and hemp and it’s one of numerous natural plant cannabinoids, which also includes psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
To determine whether the administration of CBD would result in a failed drug test, Barry Sample, director of science and technology for Quest Diagnostics, one of the larger diagnostic testing firms in the U.S, was consulted. He advised that “if the product contains only CBD and has had the THC removed, then an individual being tested would not be expected to test positive for marijuana or marijuana metabolite."
Marijuana health and science researcher, Paul Armentano, stated that the presence of CBD would not result in a failed drug test, "unless those products also contain quantities of THC. Drug tests screen for either THC or the carboxy-THC metabolite, not for CBD.”
Both experts agreed that as long as the CBD product is THC-free, a urine test would not yield a positive result for THC metabolites. If the CBD product is not THC-free, there may be trace amounts of THC in your system.
