Concerned About CBD and Drug Testing? Experts In Dothan Share Facts

Posted by PRYME CBD on May 22nd 2019

There are many people in Dothan and the surrounding area that are missing out on an alternative treatment for a variety of ailments because of their concern about CBD and drug testing. There are hundreds of people in the area that suffer from pain, anxiety, depression, PTSD, and more that could benefit from using CBD products, but unfortunately they're staying leery of it because of the potential for failing a drug test. We are more than understanding of these concerns, because failing a drug test for some could result in job loss and more. However, experts in Dothan have shared the facts, and say that "there isn't anything to worry about."

Due to the nature of Cannabidiol (CBD) products, THC is another cannabinoid that is often present in many of the products. For those that are overly concern about a drug test, they can simply opt to use a CBD Isolate, which only utilizes CBD during the extraction process and leaves all other cannabinoids behind, such as THC. However, for those wanting to explore a full spectrum product, such as CBD oil and CBD Flower, it warrants concern with people who could potentially face a drug test, and that's why WTVY (Dothan's local news station) did a little investigating of their own to get to the facts.

Aybriel Beckham first came to PRYME CBD to speak with our very own, Blake Brown (co-owner of PRYME CBD). Blake shared that "the marijuana plant is known for having a high amount of THC and a low amount of CBD. The hemp plant is known for having a high amount of CBD and a low amount of THC. If you take it as it's intended, a normal dose, and not try to overdo things or go beyond that, then you should be good." Blake shared this information from his own knowledge, research, and experience with CBD products.

While Blake certainly knows his way around the landscape of cannabidiol products, he's certainly no expert when it comes to drug tests. Logically thinking, the Federal Government would have never made hemp or hemp-derived products legal unless the THC was at such a low amount that there wouldn't be a potential of getting high or failing drug tests. And, all of the products in PRYME CBD are 0.3% THC or less and abide by the 2018 Farm Bill, making them 100% legal in the United States.

To dig into the facts, WTVY's Aybriel Beckham spoke with experts in the field at Health Link Drug Testing in Dothan, AL. They shared that people have come in and out and so far they haven't seen anyone fail a test because of CBD. To speak further on the matter, Scott Covington (President of Health Link) said "the test for marijuana for CBD oil, the cutoff for marijuana is 50 nanogram, and in order to do that you've got to be under the influence of marijuana. The CBD oil has to contain less than 3 percent."

As it was shared in the WTVY article, "those that might be concerned in Alabama, there isn't anything to worry about because of the way the test results are confirmed. Experts say it's better to obtain CBD products from licensed dispensaries to make sure CBD levels have been properly verified."
