If you’re using CBD oil, you might be wondering if it will show up on a drug test. Here’s what you need to know.

What is CBD oil?

CBD oil is made from the cannabidiol compound found in cannabis plants. Unlike THC, the psychoactive compound in cannabis, CBD does not produce any mind-altering effects. However, it is possible that CBD could show up on a drug test.

Will CBD show up on a drug test?

Most drug tests are looking for THC, not CBD. However, there is a type of drug test called a full spectrum analysis that can detect all cannabinoids, including CBD. Full spectrum analyses are rare, and most employers are not looking for CBD specifically.

However, if you are concerned about testing positive for CBD, there are a few things you can do.

  1. Make sure you are using a pure CBD oil that does not contain any THC.
  2. Ask your employer about their drug testing policy before taking the test.
  3. Avoid taking full spectrum drug tests if at all possible.

While CBD oil is unlikely to show up on a drug test, there is a small chance that it could happen. If you’re concerned about it, make sure to use a pure CBD oil and avoid taking full spectrum drug tests.
