Drug tests are a common way to detect the presence of cannabis in the body. Urinalysis can detect cannabis in the urine for approximately 3 to 30 days after consumption, while saliva tests can detect it for up to 72 hours. The amount of time that hemp stays in your system depends on the dose taken, frequency of use, and metabolism. CBD is a cannabinoid that will remain in your body for at least 2 to 5 days, but it is recommended to wait two weeks before taking a drug test.
CBD taken orally will leave the body completely in about 11 to 28 days, while vaporized or smoked CBD has a much shorter half-life. Regular users may take longer to completely remove CBD from their system than casual or new users. If you are not going to use CBD products for at least five days, the drug test results should be negative. It is important to understand company policies when it comes to drug testing with CBD oil.
Full-spectrum hemp contains many of the cannabinoids found in the hemp plant, but most of the THC has been eliminated during the extraction process. As a non-psychoactive compound found in hemp, CBD can stay in the system for a few days or a few weeks. Most drug tests test for “marijuana compounds” without distinguishing between cannabinoids, so passing a drug test after taking CBD does not necessarily mean that you have traces of THC in your body. It is also important to be aware of potential drug interactions with other medications due to CBD being metabolized by liver enzymes. Detox kits for marijuana drug tests have become popular among those who want to stop a drug test from testing positive for marijuana.
However, few employers care about employees consuming non-intoxicating drugs such as CBD, and commercial testing protocols don't measure it anyway.
