Does CBD show up on a drugs test UK?
From your anxious neighbour to your Facebook feed being filled with constant news articles, it’s starting to seem like everybody is now starting to use CBD for one reason or another. One thing we here at Infusion CBD are asked on a frequent basis: “does cbd oil show up on a drugs test?” or “does cbd vape oil show up on a drug test?”, to answer that we need to explain more about CBD. For the most, the allure of using CBD products is that they supposedly contain no tetrahydrocannabinol aka “THC”, the psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, this is what gets you stoned. Without this compound, you’re able to enjoy the relaxing and anxiety-reducing effects CBD is reported to have, without worrying about getting high, breaking the law or failing a drugs test. When you have your urine screened for marijuana, the test looks for a chemical named “THC-COOH”, essentially just a processed version of THC once it’s been in your blood stream, if you’ve bought a premium quality CBD oil that contains 0% THC, you won’t fail the test. The problem is, there are so many CBD products claiming not to have THC but still contain traces sources of the compound.

CBD has been promoted online for use with an array of ailments, from depression and anxiety to arthritis relief, insomnia and chronic pain among others however the jury is still out on those uses, there are scientific studies with evidence behind the use of the compound. In fact, across the globe, governments are using CBD as a form of treatment and become more regulated on the sale and use of CBD, So it comes as no surprise that the world of CBD has finally started to boom, with this boom comes a plethora of problems and misinformation regarding benefits of using CBD or even simple questions such as what is CBD.
It is entirely possible that you could consume an otherwise legal CBD product and still test positive for THC on a drugs screening. A lot of people don’t realise that CBD products which are labelled as “Full Spectrum” contain a variety of cannabinoids and terpenes, which means it can contain trace amounts of THC, even if the company selling the product claims there are no traces of THC. As well as that, even if you’re consuming a CBD “isolate”, there’s still a slim chance that it could contain THC residue that can’t get washed off during the isolation process. It’s always best to check the lab reports if the manufacturing company supply any.
To summarise, although you shouldn’t have a problem passing a drugs test, it’s still best to avoid going with products online based on the price, do your research to avoid buying a poor quality product. All of the products we sell here at Infusion CBD have been tested for THC and are confirmed to be organic, GMO free and THC free.
