Whole-Plant CBD and Drug Tests

Whole-Plant CBD and Drug Tests

Hemplucid CBD products are delicious and effective, and they don’t get you “high”, so it can be easy to forget that there are indeed trace elements of THC, always within the federally allowable limit, but still, THC. A recent review on the Hemplucid Facebook page taught us a valuable lesson which we are obliged to share.

Will CBD Vape Fail a Drug Test?

A customer was promised by a vape store employee that whole-plant CBD products would not cause a person to fail a drug test. However, certain drug tests strictly test for the THC metabolite, and a minuscule amount of THC, can be detected. Since Hemplucid utilizes the whole hemp plant our products contain the legal limit of THC (<.3%). Unfortunately for this individual, he failed his drug test. To keep in line with our core philosophy we want to make it unmistakably clear that this is a possibility.


How Long Is CBD Detectable in Urine?

leafly.com posted: “Individuals using unusually large doses of a cannabinoid whole-plant hemp oil product (above 1000-2000 mg of hemp oil daily) could theoretically test positive during the initial urinary screen. Although very rare, the urine screen in these cases would likely represent a “false positive” due to other non-THC metabolites or compounds, which may cross-react with the immunoassay. When this is the case, the confirmatory GC/MS test would be negative, since CBD and other cannabinoids will not be detected by the more accurate (and specific) GC/MS screen."

Keep in mind that most of the high-quality, reliable CBD whole-plant hemp oil products contain much less THC than marijuana. For example, hemp contains anywhere from 1/10th to 1/300th of the THC concentration found in marijuana. An individual consuming 1000-2000 mg per day of hemp oil would thus consume approximately 3-6 mg of THC. This exceedingly high dose may result in detection of positive urine screen in up to 11% to 23% of assays.

What does all this mean? Put simply, a consumer who uses a high-quality, scientifically vetted hemp-based product at the standard serving size is highly unlikely to test positive for THC and/or THC-COOH. However, it’s important to be cognizant that extremely high doses may result in a positive urine screen (that would be subsequently shown to be false via GC/MS). Ultimately, consumers need to be fully informed of the specific regulations posed by their employers and adjust their consumption of cannabinoid products accordingly.”


It’s been a week of introspection at Hemplucid concerning this review

We stand by our innovative product line, and we have the good fortune of hearing stories often about how whole-plant CBD has changed lives for the better. Although we have a disclaimer on our website regarding the trace-THC, we never want our products to negatively impact our customers. We share this story because we hope to inspire an atmosphere of honesty and truth– even hard truth, when necessary.

We have evaluated this situation, and we are working to make our communication clearer regarding the possibility of “popping positive”. This disclaimer will be inextricably linked with our products as long as THC remains a controversial compound:

Our products generate enthusiasm and hope, but we have an ongoing ethical responsibility to address any possible negative implications directly. If enlightenment, reason, and logic prevail this will cease to be an issue in the future.
