Does CBD Oil Show up in a Drug Test?

Does CBD Oil Show up in a Drug Test?

When people first hear the words “hemp” and ”cannabinoids” the next questions are typically “Will it make me ‘high’?” or “does it show up on a drug test?” The difference is in the strains! While CBD oil is extracted from hemp plants, there are many strands of hemp plants; varying in different levels of cannabinoids. The component that can cause a “high” is THC. THC and CBD are both cannabinoids but have very different uses and effects.

CBD vs. THC

CBD and tetrahydrocannabinol THC are the two most common cannabinoids found naturally occurring in hemp. Another thing that CBD and THC have in common is the fact that they both interact with specific cells, mainly in our brains and in other parts of the body. Since CBD and THC are similar at the molecular level, this caused a lot of confusion among the public and scientific community alike until recently.

However, the chemical properties of CBD and THC vary widely enough to classify them differently. It is also known that their effects on the body are very different. While some medicinal marijuana strands do contain CBD, they also contain THC, making it a psychotropic drug. CBD oil extracted from industrial hemp contains very small amounts of THC, making it both safe and legal in the United States.
