Got a big promotion coming up? Work for the government or as an athlete and have some type of chronic pain?
The Quick Answer:
I’m sure you thought about CBD but heard how the fantastic full spectrum CBD products do contain trace amounts of THC. The good news is NO Full Spectrum CBD Salves will not make you fail a drug test.
The Long Answer:
In order to get the greatest benefit from the hemp plant, it is best to be using a full spectrum product which means it has all cannabinoids and terpenes found in the hemp plant.These components create an entourage effect, which is a synergistic effect created by the cannabinoids and terpenes interacting together. When these components work together, the impact is much bigger than just using a regular CBD Isolate.
Topicals are fantastic to target any kind of pain you may have and help reduce inflammation. It is the nature of topicals where they are absorbed through the skin has raised questions about their safety. Will users get high as a result? And furthermore, would that cause a positive reading on a drug test?
IF you are using a Full Spectrum CBD tincture, it is not guaranteed that you will pass a drug test. If you are the using the product daily as instructed, the trace amounts of THC could build up over time causing you to fail a drug test.
IF you a using a Full Spectrum CBD salve (like our CBD Body Rub), there have been cases that show, the THC does not fully enter your system. This means you would not fail a drug test. This PubMed Study confirms that CBD topicals containing THC do not cause drug test failures and will not make you “high.”
BUT please do not be confused with Transdermal Patches. Transdermal patches work similar to a nicotine patch. These products will cause drug test failures because the active ingredients (including THC) will enter the blood stream.
