Does Using CBD Hemp Oil Result in a Positive Drug Test for THC or Marijuana?

This article is sponsored by PlusCBD Oil, a product line from CV Sciences (formerly CannaVest). CV Sciences is one of the leading suppliers and manufacturers of agricultural hemp-derived CBD bulk and finished products.


Whether you agree with it in principle or not, testing for illicit drug use is a reality for many workers in the United States. Drug testing is mandatory for federal employees, and although it isn’t required in the private sector, more employers are implementing some kind(s) of drug screening.

When drug testing is mandated, employers almost always follow the SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) guidelines because it puts them on solid legal ground. Typically, there is an overlap between testing guidelines and accepted cutoff levels for drugs and drug metabolites in confirmatory testing and screening.

How long does THC stay in your system?

Because THC is widely recognized as being responsible for marijuana’s psychoactivity and euphoria, a routine urine drug screen for marijuana use consists of an immunoassay with antibodies that are made to detect it, and its main metabolite, 11-nor-delta9-caboxy-THC (THC-COOH). SAMHSA has set the cutoff level for a positive urine screen in the immunoassay at 50 ng/mL. When the immunoassay screen is positive at the > 50 ng/mL level, a confirmatory GC/MS (Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry) test is performed to verify the positive urine screen. The confirmatory GC/MS has a cutoff level of 15 ng/mL and is specific only to the 11-nor-THCCOOH metabolite.

Does CBD Show Up on a Drug Test?

Fortunately, the urine drug screen for THC-COOH is known to have very little cross-reactivity to other cannabinoids that are not intoxicating, such as CBD (cannabidiol), CBG (cannabigerol), CBN (cannabinol), and others. This is good news for “normal” consumers of CBD/hemp oil.

That said, individuals using unusually large doses of a cannabinoid-rich 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.

The THC detox: Myths, facts, and tips

Keep in mind that most of the high-quality, reliable CBD-rich 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.

On the other hand, there is some data demonstrating that at daily doses of 0.5mg of THC from 3-5 servings of most commercial CBD-rich hemp oil products, the positive urine screen rate is < 0.2%. Again, most servings of typical high-quality, high-purity CBD-based hemp oil products contain well below 0.1mg of THC and therefore have over 400-600 times less THC than marijuana products.

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.


Note: Most research suggests that for infrequent or ‘non-daily’ users of cannabis, a typical high-dose marijuana cigarette (containing about 40mg to 50mg of THC) would result in a positive THC metabolite screen for up to two days at this cutoff level. However, for routine and regular users of cannabis, this same screen could be positive for weeks, but this depends on many factors including, but not limited to:

  • how much and how often cannabis is used
  • the metabolism of individual being tested 
  • the route of administration
  • other factors such as medications used, liver or kidney disease, etc.

This article is based on SAMHSA standards. Other organizations’ drug testing standards may vary, so keep in mind that the findings presented in this article may differ under alternative standards. If you have any concern about testing positive for THC when using CBD-containing hemp oil, please seek advice from your health care professional.

    http://eiha.org/media/2014/08/16-09-01-Grotenhermen-Comment-on-CBD-conversion-to-THC-Merrick-et-al.-2016.pdf – high doses of oral CBD do not cause psychological, psychomotor, cognitive or physical effects that are characteristic for THC or cannabis rich in THC. On the contrary, in the past decades and by several groups high doses of oral CBD were consistently shown to cause opposite effects to those of THC in clinical studies. Thus, there is no reason to avoid oral use of CBD, which has been demonstrated to be a safe means of administration of CBD, even at very high doses.

          Hey numb nuts!! I’m a United States Army Vet and an RN. I also have a Bachelor’s in Business Admin and Elementary Ed. I started having seizures and now have liver disease from the seizure meds. I started CBD oil for my seizures and now have a seizure once or twice per month vs 30/day. I will tell you from medical experience that CBD oil at doses between 1500-2000mg /day can cause a false positive for THC. Would you need me to direct you to the research?

          • MP

            Taking hemp oil with CBD WILL cause a false positive for marijuana use. I know so and have lost an employment opportunity as a result.

          • gwivet

            Right on brother. I think people are confused about the false positive that will be taken care of with the GC/MS that can distinguish between the two.

          • Hello there. I couldn’t help but read into what you were saying about the seizure medication. I take 800 mg of Gabapentin(Neurontin) a day and hate that medication, but it helps with my nerve pain. I have a legal MM card coming in, but can’t use it because of the meds I’m on. 😮
            It so aggravates me why can’t we smoke and take our meds??? There is NO interaction..they just can’t control it all. It is all because of Federal reasons…which needs to be fixed. I would like to try the CBD oil, but scared of the risk of them booting me out and me being in excruciating pain!! Any answers to solve this horrible nightmare??

    thinking to try for chronic pain. and this has been a worry since the pain mgmt clinic routinely tests for drugs (if you get positive you are no longer a patient then).

    • Mary

      I take for chronic pain caused by MS. I’ve had MS for 45 years now and this concentrate had been such a relief.

    • Bill

      Got that right. Pain clinics do not give a $hit about your well being! I went to one for 20 years for chronic back pain and never got drug tested. I also have epilepsy, and after years of trying all the med the neurologists prescribed my seizures were never considered to be “controlled”. Then one day my current neurologist said I want you to try some cbd oil. I have been using very low thc (3% and less), but one day while at an office visit at the pain management doctor the nurse walked in with a cup and said I need you to pee in this. Then the practitioner came in and was like “so you smoke pot!?!?”. I said, “no, I do not!” He said your urine test results indicate that you do! And his tone was pis sing me off! I then told him about my epilepsy aND that my neurologist had recommended cbd oil, and that since I had been using it I had not had ANY seizures. He said, “well that doesn’t concern us, so if you want to keep being treated here for your chronic back pain you will have to promise me you will stop???”. I said to him, “let me see? If I promise to stop using the medicine that is controlling my seizures, which is legal in our state, which by the way could kill me, you will continue to let me pay you $2,500 every 3 months to give me injections of steroids between my vertabra?” He didn’t get the redundancy and sarcasm of my question and quickly said, “yes”, to which I replied, “no thanks! I will just start using an oil that is able to both control my seizures and help with the pain!”. Turns out I already was using the right stuff….I just had to use more of it to help the pain. It is truly an amazing plant!

        Bill, my name is and I just moved to Las Vegas. We have not yet had a chance to locate a Chronic Pain clinic for a family member of mine. I was wonder if you would be willing to have a dialogue with me concerning your medications. We came from Texas where it was not legal just yet.

        • Kelley Baking

          CBD in all forms is legal in all 50 states and has been for over two years. So you could have been using it in TX all this time.

      • Bruce B

        That’s terrible, I was always under the impression that they would not treat you the medicine wise such as narcotic pain medicine but this provider would not continue to do the injections which has nothing to do with narcotic medicine. This is why the rules need to be changed federally.

      • Thomy

        Ditto Ditto Ditto Bill, Good for you !! I have severe arthritis in my neck, the worst place to ever have it too. Opioids did control the pain fairly well and I used the opioids way less frequent than I was prescribed, mainly because much of my pain, although severe, was episodic and seemed to be “weather connected”, especially during seasonal changes. My product is Cannabis in particular and I’m dependent on high THC levels in order to achieve true pain relief. I was always very aware that I could become addicted to the opioids as well, so both me and my V.A. doctor worked closely together monitoring my actual use of opioids and I do not believe I have ever been addicted to opioids at any time… I quit smoking Cannabis in 1985. One autumn morning, in the year 2013, I was wreathing in pain and had no pills or even Tylenol and my stomach would not allow me to consume Nsaids type medication such as Aleve or any Ibuprophen or Aspirin based product. My brother caught me bent over, in a chair, out on my deck and offered me his Cannabis pipe with a fresh load of Cannabis. At first I scoffed at him but I was also aware that Washington state law had legalized “Medical Marijuana” and a lot of folks believed it can relieve pain. My brother left the pipe laying on the table so I sort of stared at it, still wreathing in pain and thought, “what do I have to lose”, so I picked up the pipe and took a toke. I waited for a minute or two and took an additional two more hits. I walked back in the house and thought, “maybe a cup of coffee would help” ? By the time I had made a Keurig cup of coffee, I could feel a warmness come across the back of my neck and some tingling. I could literally feel the pain relieving. About 5 minutes later, I started washing the dishes and by the time I was done, maybe 10 to 15 minutes, the pain was GONE and did not return until 3 days later, which only amounted to a slight twinge of pain but seemed to get increasingly worse until I used the Cannabis again. When my doctor came to realize I had not reordered my pain medication, I told her I tried using Cannabis and it’s working beautifully and seemed even residual in its effect. That was Oct 10th 2013 and I have never been on any opioid medication since……… Smiling in Spokane

        • Maria S

          Thomy, have the rheumatologists ever told you that if you do not take medications like Methotrexate and/or Humira, your neck would fuse and would be bone-on-bone?? Have you had ANY x-rays done to determine if your neck got worse since you started MM? I really need to know this! Thank you in advance!!!

          • Thomy

            Yes, I have had 3 separate x-rays done, none of which showed any further progress plus or minus with the arthritis itself….

      • Wayne Galvin

        That is so true, all they care about is profits from pharmacuticals that are “legal” and approved by the insurance companies.
        A natural remedy that is proven to provide relief from pain or any other problem may infringe on the profits from products is a threat
        and they will work close to government agencies to prevent colapse of their great monopopolistic empires…

        Hi Bill…Just reading your article? What type of epilepsy do you have? I usually take about 4-5 seizures a yr and most are in my sleep but some occur while awake but usually when i go a few days with not much sleep? Thinking of the CBD oil for sleep and seizures but worried about the drug test at work? Does all the CBD oil have traces of THC in it and is the THC that’s helping your seizures? How bad was your epilepsy? How much oil do you take a day? I’m just looking for some advice. I love hearing stories where something natural is helping with seizures and not the stupid pills!! I take 800mg of tegretol a day and it doesnt seem to be working. Hope to hear back from you Bill….Take care

    • Jayste

      My pain management DR office sells the CBD oil & it has helped me a lil bit with my pain, but helps a lot with my anxiety & mood. My family & friends have a better life when I take it because I’m not so grouchy & irritatable. I’ve been taking for a while(3months) & it hasn’t shown up on a drug test yet, if it does when they send it off it will come back negative so you should be fine. We’re going to need all the help we can get(with pain mang.) since the government has put the squeeze on DR’s that are writing opioids. Best of wishes to any with chronic pain/ may you have a painfree day & night.

  • jg

    is liquid gold considered a very rich cbd supplement?

    • Mary

      Yes. A very strong concentrate. I believe the strongest of concentrates available.

  • Betsy Singh-Anand

    I just did a home test. Granted, it is a 20 nanogram cutoff which is lower than the gooberment standard, but it was definitely very POSITIVE. I am very disappointed. The CBD oil was really helping, but I can’t risk popping a + for pain management. This was CBD oil from industrial hemp, with the THC removed via CO2 extraction, and legal in all 50 states. Legal or not, I *will* be fired from pain management if I am positive.

    • Bill

      Just try using a higher dose of the oil….that’s what I did! Read my post above. Screw the pain doctors…you don’t need them! It’s a racket to get you hooked on their drugs!

    • White Prowler

      You have a video of you taking the test or any other proof other than a random post on the Internet that is otherwise worthless without proof?

    • Bill

      If it works for you then why worry about a pain management drug screen? What I did after I was fired by pain doc, which I didn’t mention in my comments made earlier, was to go to my family doctor. I hadn’t been seeing pain doc for several months and was relying solely on CBD. I simply told her “I don’t go to the pain doctor anymore.”, then afyer a short pause i then said, “my insurance changed my copay for a specialist increased by 5 times.”, which wasn’t a lie because all was true….just didn’t mention the part about failing a urine screen. I didn’t even have to ask after that….she just simply said, “I can prescribe your meds….as long as you’re not asking for a refill every month.” Worked out well because there are times when I can’t use the oil because traveling and don’t wanna go to jail in another state , so it is nice to have a back up plan.

      • kracker

        sadly its no different than if you test positive for opioids after an accident. if any of that stuff is in your system your in big trouble. Don’t get me wrong it really ticks me off that its legal as well as Dr’s writing scripts for opioid use 24 hours a day yet they don’t tell you and write a script saying you cant drive. It is a HUGE problem that no State or Federal government agency has made a clear statement on. What if I ate to many poppy seed bagels for breakfast lol.

    • Cory Rudd

      from my understanding, in my previous employment and in this article. If you pop hot, your sample is retested for specifics……then should show as a false positive. Just had a friend oddly enough test positive for methadone and guess what caused it. Yep you guessed it, Monster energy drink. Now understand he use to drink enough Monster to keep the business afloat all by himself. Now he avoids that isle in the grocery store.

      But in your defense, who wants to risk it?

    • Chris Carson

      Hi I also tested positive on a pill 35mg 1 a day. I’ve been taking them 3 months… here’s the kicker I did loose my job and had to go through the sap program.. it’s been a nightmare..

        Hi Liz, I am in the process of getting my RN license back in MA and I get random urine screens. I also have chronic sciatic pain from spinal stenosis and do not want to try surgery at this point in time. Some people have suggested CBD oil but I cannot take the chance of having anything show up in my urine. Do you know, first of all if the CBD oil might help my sciatica? and what would I take and I need to take something that would not show up in my urine. The lab cutoff for THC is very low; it’s 10. Anything you could tell me would be helpful. Thanks!

  • shelby s

    YES CBD OIL WILL CAUSE URINE POSITIVE FOR THC ON THE URINE DRUG SCREEN. You risk your job and roll the dice but you have now been warned. If you take opioids or benzodiazipines for chronic pain your prescriber who is licensed by the FEDERAL DEA will have to regularly perform urine drug screen. If you test positive they will no longer be able (according to the DEA WEBSITE) prescribe these medications to you. This is the primary reason for the urine drug screen. Many Doctors are uninformed about this, and so don’t be surprised if suddenly they figure it out and you cannot get your refill anymore, that means forever more from that prescriber. Keep in mind the person who sold you the CBD oil in the first place does not have a DEA license or any liability. Their job is to sell you the oil and tell you not to worry about it. Just because they legalized marijuana in some states does not mean you can test positive for it and walk out of the office with a prescription for Vicodin, Norco, Morphine, Fentanyl patch, Restoril, Soma or Valium.

    • Miss Kitty

      Depends upon the dosage. Read the article.

    • White Prowler

      You provide no proof for your argument that “YES CBD OIL WILL CAUSE URINE POSITIVE FOR THC ON THE URINE DRUG SCREEN.”. Nor for any other of your points in fact. Assuming you just need attention.

      • Bill

        THC free CBD oil will not cause a positive on a drug screen because there is no THC, which is what the test for (THC-9 to be exact), however there is CBD oil that is legal in all 50 states which still contains 0.3% max. Even though it’s only 0.3% there is a risk of a positive for THC. If you saw my reply about being fired from pain management, what I am taking is 3%THC which will definitely show up on a drug screen. But if you need relief and CBD oil, with or without thc, provides that relief and you have access to it I would drop the toxic pharmaceuticals and go with the natural treatment.

        Before Rockefeller cornered the market on fuel all medicine was herbal based, but with refined petroleum based liquid it allowed labs to separate things they couldn’t before which allowed them to make treatments synthetically. Big Corporate interests are the reasons behind why it was ever criminalized….I’ve done a lot of reading on it since I started using it. Our descendants will look back on this time with the exclamation “they did what? Outlawed a plant?!?!?”, as they scratch their heads in astonishment.

    I just started consuming Hemp oil and this information of test positive for THC while taking Hemp gave me a peace of mind. I’m suffer of fibromyalgia and I don’t like to take prescribe medications,
    I like to consume natural medications such as herbs, mineral, vitamins.. etc.

  • TT

    Hi! I use pure cold pressesd Hemp oil topically on my neck and shoulders. It has really helped me. My question is how would this application result or not result in a positive drug test? All I saw was ingesting it. Thank you!

    • kracker

      i would be interested in this too as i have a hemp cream i use

      • Could it also be vaped? I’m trying to quit smoking cigs and love my vape. That is how I would use it, but would also use it in cream form, for the joint/muscle pain from Fibro. I also have chronic neuropathic Lyme disease(in the brain—literally) and every layer of my back is affected, which is utter ****!! Some days…I literally feel like I’ve been hit by a truck…and that is a lot of the time too. :/

        I sure hope that I can use the CBD oil and pass the drug test at my pain clinic because I don’t believe with all that I got going on that I could do without my pain meds, if I failed. I’m in pain even when I take them, but they do help relieve some of the agony. 😮
        Smoking the marijuana does help me, when I can smoke that is…in between going to the PC, but it also seems to make me more sensitive to the pain. I donno..I just want relief. I have nerve damage and my whole body is messed up in some way.
        I’m just between a rock and a hard place. That is what my LLMD said and I agree with him because we shouldn’t be penalized for something that has been proven to be effective for pain and have to do without our medication because we smoke it. He approves of MM, but he sees how we are being treated and can’t have both.

    • Marty Glynn

      Because it gets absorbed by the skin and can get in your bloodstream.

  • kracker

    YES!!!! I don’t care what anyone says I don’t vape that much CBD maybe 4-5 ML of 200 to 250mg a week sometimes less and i tested positive. Thank GOD i was up front with my Dr. about vapeing it when i started and he understood but warned me but said lets ait and see what the urine test comes back with. well low and behold positive. Now i have no idea what the consider positive but I have a month to flush my system and take another urine test that must be clean. Why and how is CBD legal if it has ANY THC in it.

    • Sarah Abrahiem

      Because it actually needs that small amount of THC in order for the CBD to activate; that’s how it works.

    Do not take hemp oil/CBD if you have to submit for marijuana screenings. You will test positive. I know so and have lost an employment opportunity as a result. I do not use marijuana but was taking Elixinol brand hemp oil coconut extract with CBD and tested positive.

    • gwivet

      was it tested with a GC/MS ?

      • MP

        The urine was, yes. 26 ng/ml. Looking to have the supplement tested to help prove my case that I am not a drug user, but the job opportunity has been lost. Only trying to protect/restore my reputation and integrity at this point.

  • KellyB4

    I would love to try the the oil. I have scoliosis and spinal arthritis, and now severe neck pain. Like some others I’m just too afraid I’d get booted from pain management. Not a risk I want to take. It’s disheartening that people in chronic pain can’t take an organic product without fear of losing pain meds. When we need everything possible to try to stay out of chronic pain.. Sounds like the oil has amazing benefits!!

  • Peggy Ruffin

    I was wondering if anyone has tried it for Nuroropthy I have it real bad, but I get drug tested.

    • Teri Tipton Cottone

      I’m reading this because I just came back positive for THC.. I was assured it didn’t have THC in it but apparently it did or made the test come back positive anyway.. They already make you feel like a criminal for taking pain meds. When they put me on the pain meds I literally had to go to a psychiatrist to tell me it is no different from a diabetic taking insulin. I had come to terms with it and they do help. I don’t take large doses.. The only reason I did the CBD oil was because I have an abscessed tooth. I didn’t take them from the dentist due to a pain contract so I did this instead. I was told by the Dr it was fine to take the pain pills from a dentist for an acute situation. Now this?? Bottom line don’t take it if you get drug tested. This absolutely floored me. I don’t even drink alcohol, follow the rules and now this?? I had even mentioned the CBD tincture to my doctor but she is out on maternity leave.
      I did take tithe day I had the dug test.. Maybe that was why?? I’m not sure but why take the chance?

  • BillybobBiden

    I just failed a drug screen. I use Rix Mix 750 CBD oil, approx 6 to 10 drops a day. Have not smoked weed in years. Just FYI. Maybe stop for a week and try again. I’m not sure how long CBD will stay in my system until I can test again?

    I am looking for an alternative treatment for my type 2 diabetes. This sounds amazing, but I can’t take the chance of failing a drug test.
    I really want to discuss this with my Doctor, but I suspect that :
    1) Alternative medicine might not be his cup of tea.
    2) HE may have vested interest in keeping my medicine cabinet full, if you get my meaning…….

    Ideas?

    I took CBD oil for nerve pain that was a result of spinal surgery. I’m on a drug treatment program and a routine Urine test came back positive for THC, which resulted in a lot of ongoing heartache for me. The CBD oil was a gift and I got zero mood altering effects from it. Not a smidgen of a high, or a buzz or whatever you want to call it. Nada. Zip; and STILL got a positive for THC. SO,now I read that an initial false positive is possible. Of course I was not offered a rerest, which I thought was routine.

    2 ml of 300 once a day for 5 day will get you a positive on a drug screen at the pain clinic. BE WARE!

    Why can no one in the CBD community just say YES CBD will always have trace THC and you could easily test positive as I did. I did not use it everyday and never smoked pot or was around it and I tested 31ng and my PM doctors limit is 10ng which is a joke in itself. Stop lying to the public and just say YES all CBD products have trace THC in them and you could test positive period.

    Boils down to a company can discriminate using their policy as a reason. A person should be able to treat their health problem with a legal remedy without the disguise of company “policy “
    Get educated for goodness sake. Quit being a pawn.

    I have a question, I am a tractor trailer driver and have been one for over 40 years. I have arthritis in my neck, hands, wrists, elbows and lower back. I was considering using pure Hemp Oil for pain relief. I contacted a facility that handles random drug screen for CDL holders in my area. They were unable to answer my question regarding Pure Hemp Oil and whether or not I would be able to pass a random drug screen if I were to use it. I’ve read that high dosages could result in a positive test result. What is a high dose first of all? would it disqualify, me by giving me a positive reading. I’ve read people are placing one drop under their tongue for relief. Is one drop of this pure hemp oil considered a high dosage ? Some help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    To whom it may concern…if you are at risk to be urine screened. Take it from me YOU WILL FAIL THE URINE SCREEN DUE TO CBD OIL. living proof right here.

    I know 2 people who have only taken 15 MG softgels once a day and ended up testing positive for THC with CV SCIENCE. I was SHOCKED and have contacted the company with batch numbers. Waiting for a response…

    How to sensibly buy LEGAL CBD oil? Because I got a letter saying customs have confiscated my package two times already and I’m pissed.

  • I was just told by my Physiatrist ‘s nurse that using CBD oil will cause a positive read for THC on a drug screen, which we take monthly.
