The cannabis industry has done an impeccable job of highlighting how certain strains of marijuana can have a positive impact on our lives while also shedding light on the healing powers and benefits of hemp-derived CBD.

CBD is known to react with the body in the most pleasing and relaxing ways, allowing those with prior ailments and pains to seek out an all-natural remedy like CBD. This goes for those struggling with anxiety, chronic pain, insomnia, epilepsy, and other health conditions. CBD is just one of the many cannabinoids found in the hemp plant and is often confused with its stimulating counterpart, THC.

CBD Vs. THC

In straightforward terms, CBD is different from THC due to its non-psychoactive effects that don’t alter mental states and make the user feel high. In contrast, THC is responsible for making the user feel euphoric, high, and stimulated. 

We must note that CBD products can contain small amounts or traces of THC, especially when the product is created using full-spectrum hemp-derived CBD. These products can’t legally pass more than 0.3% THC, or they will be considered mind-altering. CBD offers a relaxing and almost mediative experience, but there’s still much to learn regarding the whole CBD experience

Which CBD Is Best For Drug Tests?

Three different CBD extracts are crucial to understand when undergoing a drug test and steer clear of any hiccups. First, your safest bet for drug tests is using products that contain CBD isolate. This is CBD in its purest form available on the market, and all traces of THC are removed.

The second safest option is products with broad-spectrum CBD. This contains all the natural compounds found in hemp minus THC (that’s been removed). Lastly, it’s a little risky to use products with full-spectrum CBD simply because there’s an underlying amount of 0.3% THC that may show up on a drug test.

Why Won't Pure CBD Show Up On Drug Tests?

It’s been proven that products made with pure CBD won’t show up on a drug test simply because the compound does not react with most commercially available drug tests used for marijuana screening that search for THC.

However, this is only true if the product was made with CBD isolate or broad-spectrum CBD; even the smallest amount of THC like the 0.3% found in full-spectrum CBD can show up and result in a failed test. So we encourage you to read up on your products and ensure what kind of CBD extract it’s made with to pass your test with flying colors.
