  • CBD and Drug Testing: 5 facts you should know

    CBD and Drug Testing

    Those who consume CBD, sweat quickly in the drug test. But are the worries justified? Can CBD even be detected in the blood - and can you lose your driving license because of CBD? We will answer that and more in this article. Here are the 5 most important facts about CBD and drug testing!
    Fact 1: CBD consumption is legal
    Buying, consuming and carrying CBD is basically legal. Here, the ratio of CBD ("cannabidiol") and THC ("tetrahydrocannabinol") plays an important role - legal CBD must not contain more than the legal limit in Germany of a maximum of 0.2 percent THC content. If this is not the case, the CBD falls under the Narcotics Act and consumption is punishable.
    By the way: The Federal Office of Agriculture and Food has approved about 50 hemp plants (with a THC content of less than 0.2%) for the production of CBD products.
    Fact 2: CBD has no psychoactive effect
    Unlike THC, CBD has no effect on perception. Even with CBD products with 0.2% THC content, you will not experience a high feeling and no physical or motor limitations. Therefore, CBD is in most cases compatible with driving without any concerns. Nevertheless, CBD beginners should not get into the car immediately after first use - CBD at very high dosage may cause effects such as tiredness or drowsiness.
    Fact 3: CBD rarely gives cause for control
    For a drug test, the police need a suspicion. Since cannabidiol has no intoxicating effect, this initial suspicion of CBD consumption is rarely given - for example, the typical red eyes or delayed reflexes are missing, as is the case with the consumption of THC. If you get in control and are very tired by CBD, the police can only forbid you to drive on. But you do not punish yourself!
    Tip: Do not use the CBD consumption in a traffic control without asking. Many people (and civil servants) are not yet sufficiently informed about cannabidiol, which can lead to misunderstandings.
    Fact 4: You can not prove CBD
    Cannabidiol is basically undetectable by a drug test. Whether CBD oil, CBD blossoms or CBD extracts: who consumes pure CBD, has nothing to fear in a control. Even with CBD products with 0.2% THC content, the drug test is usually negative - for larger amounts, however, the THC can be detected up to three weeks after consumption.
    Tip: For CBD and drug testing, a blood test is a better choice. In contrast to the on-site rapid tests, blood tests are more accurate and can differentiate between the different cannabinoids. Thus, in the best case, it can be proven that the THC present in the body was only part of a legally approved CBD product.
    Fact 5: Urine tests are always voluntary
    Nobody can force you to a urine test. Anyone who refuses to pass the drug test will rarely be taken to the police station for no good reason. This is also only possible with a judicial permit - if the initial suspicion is missing, save most of the police the effort.
    The topic of CBD and drug testing is rarely sensitive. Anyone who consumes CBD with a maximum of 0.2% THC content is on the legal side and does not make themselves punishable when driving a car. The CBD consumption is hardly noticeable for other people, has no influence on your driving ability - and the low THC content is usually not detected in the blood. Of course, this only applies to legal CBD products with a maximum content of THC of 0.2%!
