Updated on September 22, 2023
Now you might think it’s crazy to think CBD can be detected in a drug test or cause any problems as it’s safe and doesn’t make you high. Unfortunately for some CBD users their test results have tested positive for THC and got them in trouble even while using a full-spectrum CBD product. Even after the federal legal THC limit for industrial hemp is 0.3% it is possible to have tested positive.
If you have a marijuana drug test coming up or plain curious it’s important you know how long CBD stays in our system, and if it can be detected. The answer to this question will ease your mind and prepare you to take the test.
There isn’t a straightforward answer to this, as it depends on a number of factors like,
- Method of consumption determines how long CBD stays in your body. For eg, a single dose taken orally lasts upto 1 to 2 days.
- Dosage of CBD also helps in determining how long it will last in your body, as the higher the dosage, the longer it will stay in the body.
- Frequency of use is an important factor as it will increase the duration of CBD in your body. The more often you consume, the longer it stays in your body.
- Metabolism is the most important factor as the faster your metabolism, the faster CBD will be excreted.

Can CBD be Detected in a Drug Test?
The answer is simply no, CBD cannot be detected in a drug test. That being said most of the drug tests do not look for CBD, what they are looking for is THC. As THC is the substance that gives the high a drug test for marijuana detects THC in the CBD product you are consuming.
Typically the test conducted is Five-panel and 10-panel drug tests which check for marijuana use by testing for THC, not CBD. Unfortunately most of the CBD products available contain a minimum of 0.3% THC which is the federal legal limit for industrial hemp. It is entirely possible to be detected positive on a test result if the THC levels are more than 0.3%.
While you are consuming CBD there a still a rare chance you are going to test positive on the drug test, as it depends on the quality and composition of the product you are using. It is important to remember legal CBD is not regulated by the FDA and likely to contain other cannabidiols, which are detectable by a drug test and interpreted as marijuana use.
If you have an upcoming drug test to be extra cautious use CBD with no THC like a broad spectrum which excluded THC or CBD isolate which contain no THC.
