Can CBD Use Result in a Positive Urinalysis?
It depends on which product you are using. Not all are created equal.
The recent boom has resulted in a market where quality is not always the number one concern of some manufacturers. This results in consumers doubting the effectiveness of CBD, and even exposing themselves to the risks of positive urinalysis.
CBD is only truly legal in all 50 states if its THC content is 0.3% or lower. However, many CBD products purchased online have tested at 5% THC, or higher. A study conducted by The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) concluded:
"Studies have shown that some CBD products’ labeling does not accurately reflect their content.1 Cannabis based products containing a THC level greater than 0.3% on a dry weight basis do not fall under the Farm Bill’s definition of hemp even if they are labeled as such. In one study, the amount of CBD in 69% of the 84 tested CBD products was inconsistent with that on the label, and some products contained unlabeled cannabinoids, including THC in amounts up to 6.4 mg/mL. As such, an employee’s drug test may be positive for the THC metabolite, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol-9-carboxylic acid (THCA), due to THC in the CBD product."
While we at Sand Creek Restoratives believe CBD to be a truly incredible supplement, with a wide range of beneficial uses, we urge people not to be fooled into jeopardizing their livelihood by using inferior products, many of which use high profile names and state of the art advertising tactics to cover up the fact that they use Chinese imports.
One of the most important things to look for when purchasing a CBD product is its testing. Reputable sellers will be proud to let you know that their product has been 3rd party certified for purity. These products will contain less than 0.3% THC.
For someone to test positive using products at 0.3% THC, they would have to use about 2000mg or more of the CBD product regularly, which is a nearly unfathomable amount.
Another thing to look at is the source. Is it made from US gown, Non-GMO Hemp? Processed in the United States? FDA registered facility?
And, finally, what are the other ingredients in the product? Are they also high quality? Are they natural?
Sand Creek Restoratives CBD products are made in the United States of America, using only the finest natural ingredients and cannabidiol derived from US grown, non-gmo hemp. It is third party lab tested and THC-Free.
