Can Vaping CBD Products Lead to a Positive Drug Test?

Vaping CBD products could potentially lead to a positive result on a urine test for marijuana, according to a small pilot study. Drug tests don't detect CBD because it doesn't cause intoxicating effects and it's not an illegal controlled substance. However, people who use CBD may not yet pass a drug test due to the lack of regulation of CBD products. Products containing CBD may be contaminated with THC or have an incorrect labeling, so it's important to look for a Certificate of Analysis (COA) that details the compounds found in a CBD product.

Broad-spectrum CBD and CBD isolates are less likely than full-spectrum CBD to be contaminated with detectable levels of THC due to extraction methods specifically used to remove THC from formulations. CBD is legal in every state and has little or no tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the cannabinoid, which is the main psychoactive component of cannabis. However, scientists are not yet sure how CBD exerts its effects, but believe it could increase endocannabinoid levels or bind to serotonin receptors. An analysis of 67 food products containing CBD in Germany revealed that 25% of the samples contained THC above the lowest level of observable adverse effects (LOAEL) of 2.5 milligrams per day.

As vapers turn to more natural ingredients such as CBD in their vaping oil and juices, there has been an influx of casual users. Full-spectrum CBD products generally come in the form of oils, edibles, topical creams, tinctures, and serums. If you use CBD products regularly, it's important to note that they may contain potentially problematic ingredients. Drinking a good amount of espresso combined with water and electrolytes will really help open the floodgates and allow you to pass the CBD test.

CBD has some psychoactive effects, so researchers are studying its potential to treat mental health conditions, such as depression and anxiety. If you're concerned about testing positive for cannabis on a drug test due to your use of CBD products, there are certain steps you can take to determine if the product you're buying contains as little THC as possible. However, there's no guarantee that the labeling is accurate due to the lack of regulation of CBD products.
