CBD stands for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is a cannabinoid. It is a chemical compound that behaves similarly to neurotransmitters of our body. It is deemed as an effective, low cost and biological chemical compound.
So Does CBD show up on drug tests?
Over more than 100 compounds are found in cannabis plants. Two well-known among these compounds are the delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC), which has a psychoactive effect on the mind. Cannabidiol is another important component, which does not have psychoactive effects on the mind. That’s why it’s best to use it for medicinal purposes.
THC can create a “high,” whereas CBD doesn’t cause a high like THC.
When it comes to drug tests, studies have shown that, if the CBD is pure then you will pass the drug test. But if your CBD products are containing some amount of THC, then there is a possibility of failing the drug test.
The Drug test screening is done to trace the amount of THC, not CBD as it is not intoxicating and is not an illegal controlled substance.
If your CBD products contain enough amount of THC then it can be detected during a drug test.
This means that in rare cases, you may fail the drug test by consuming this compound product. It is all about the quality and composition of cannabidiol.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has controlled most of the CBD products. As a result, it is quite difficult to fathom what is in your product even if its products are legalized in your state.
How long does THC or CBD last in your body?
THC may stand in your body for 8 to 9 days. It can be detected in urine tests for up to 15 days, but it depends on many factors like how often you consume it and how much you use it. It usually leaves the main bloodstream within 6 hours, but THC metabolites may stay in our bloodstream for 3 to 6 days.
It can stay in your bloodstream for 5 days, but it also depends on factors like dosage and method. If you are taking these products for a month or two then they may stay in your bloodstream for 30 days.
If you are willing to take this product or medications then it is essential to do a copious amount of research and evaluate the products that are available in the market. Also, seek advice from your doctor before giving CBD products a try.
