Does CBD oil show up in a drug test?

Estimated reading time: < 1 min

The simple answer is no.

The cannabinoid responsible for the cannabis high is tetrahydrocannabinol, more commonly known as THC. It is THC that will be tested for in drugs tests. THC should only be present in minute quantities in CBD products (all UK Regulated CBD companies such as EthicaCBD will only have minute quantities of THC), so there will be nowhere near enough for you to fail a drugs test from taking CBD.

CBD Science

CBD is legal to use in the UK. If you consume CBD as a novel food or food supplement according to the recommended daily intake on the product label, it should not show up on a drug test.

Commercial CBD health food products in the UK should contain negligible levels of the psychotropic cannabinoid, THC. The very low levels of THC in CBD food products fall below the cut-off point for testing positive for cannabis use in a drug test.
