Will CBD oil show positive in a drug test?

The answer is ‘it depends’. Because there are typically only trace amounts of THC (the psychoactive compound that delivers users the ‘high’) found in CBD-rich hemp oil, in most cases it will not cause a positive drug test when consumed at suggested servings. Most tests do not detect the presence of CBD (cannabidiol).

CBD is a non-psychoactive compound that doesn’t cause a high. A typical employment-related drug test will screen for THC and its metabolites. The test is known to have very little cross-reactivity to cannabinoids that are not psychoactive, such as CBD.

Some studies, however, have shown that eating hemp foods and consuming hemp oils can, in rare cases, cause a positive result in urine and blood tests because CPD/hemp products have varying trace amounts of THC (commonly less that 3%, but sometimes that is uncontrolled, untested or noted inaccurately on the product).
