Could taking CBD cost you your job?
Will CBD show up on a drug test is not a silly question. CBD comes from the cannabis plant, which here in the UK and many other countries, is illegal.
While CBD is legal you may be concerned that the association with cannabis may make it show up on a works drug test. In this blog, we are going to share some information on different types of CBD, some which may be more likely to alert a drug test.
We talk you through all of this in our video below, or if you are more of a reader, it’s all here too
Full Spectrum CBD
Full Spectrum CBD is extracted in a less aggressive way to CBD isolate. This means that it maintains terpenes and flavonoids, as well as some THC. THC is what they will be testing for when you undergo a drug test. While the amount of THC in this type of CBD will be no more than 0.2%, there is a small chance that if you have super sensitive drug testing then this could show up.
CBD isolate is just CBD. It is extracted from the plant without the other terpenes or THC. As no THC is present then this will be very sure not to show up on a drug test.
Broad Spectrum CBD
Broad Spectrum CBD doesn’t contain THC, however, it does contain terpenes. Terpenes have their own benefits, which work in synergy with CBD. If you are looking to get the biggest bang for your buck then you may wish to try broad spectrum. This is particularly ideal if your workplace does drug testing as it will not show up on a test, due to the fact it contains zero THC.
Which CBD is best for me?
If you have super sensitive drug testing at your place of work, then we suggest you opt for CBD isolate or broad-spectrum. Broad-spectrum has the added benefit of terpenes within it, to help you with various ailments and conditions, alongside your CBD.
