In addition, CBD use is not a legitimate medical explanation for a laboratory-confirmed positive marijuana result. Therefore, medical review officers will verify a confirmed drug test at the appropriate cut-off points as positive, even if an employee claims to have only used a CBD product. The production of CBD products remains unregulated. The Food and Drug Administration does not verify THC concentrations in CBD products.
As a result, products labelled as "no THC" or "low THC" may still contain more than the legal concentration limit of 0. This means that regardless of the type of CBD oil you buy, you run the risk of failing a DOT drug test. There is a possibility that the use of a CBD product could cause a positive result for marijuana in a DOT drug test. It is up to the driver whether they want to take the risk, but they should be warned.
Mouth swabs don't test for CBD, they test for THC, Sample said. So no, CBD will not show up on a standard workplace drug test mouth swab. However, THC will, so avoid large amounts of CBD with THC levels. Stop us if you've heard this, but workplace hair follicle tests generally don't look for CBD, they look for the old familiar THC-COOH.
So no, CBD will not show up in a standard workplace drug test of a hair follicle. Any CBD you take that has THC levels could leave THC by-products in a hair follicle, where they have the potential to linger for a while. You won't fail a drug test for CBD, but you could potentially fail a drug test for any THC residue in that CBD product. No company or item (including Patriot CBD) can guarantee that you will fail a DOT drug test by taking CBD with zero THC.
Remember that if you are a DOT "safety-sensitive employee," you will be routinely drug tested, so take CBD at your own risk. As a result, the DOT says, "Safety-sensitive employees should exercise caution when considering the use of CBD products." For this reason, it's no wonder that many DOT drivers seek out CBD to alleviate symptoms such as pain, insomnia, fatigue, depression and anxiety (just to name a few...). So, if you're a "safety-sensitive" DOT employee, you'll want to avoid all full-spectrum CBD products - read the label very carefully. Simply put, if a CBD company gets its oil from hemp, and that hemp is grown according to the letter of the law, it would take a LOT of CBD oil to fail a drug test.
CBD by itself won't make you fail a drug test, but THC will, and many CBD oils have some amount of THC in them. Workers who use a lot of CBD (cannabidiol) for pain, anxiety, insomnia, or a host of other symptoms, can accidentally (and unfairly) fail drug tests for cannabis in certain cases, the media and experts report. Instead, workers fail workplace drug tests for marijuana's main active ingredient, THC, which can exist in low amounts in some CBD products and then persist in the human body for weeks.
