YOU CAN FAIL A DRUG TEST USING CBD?
Being a freelance writer I’ve been blessed with never having to take a drug test. My last real job was at Hustler magazine and they didn’t care about their editors doing drugs.
And if the perfect job came flying into my lap and tons of money was thrown in my face and I could fly around the world writing about cool things, and they first wanted me to take a drug test then I would not take the job.
I wouldn’t want to work somewhere where my freedoms are strangled, whether that freedom is legal or not.
But what happens when you don’t do drugs, but use CBD, and then you fail your drug test?
Okay, before you start to flip out, it’s not that simple.
There are variables involved. But I won’t list them here, you’ll need to go to the web site I’m about to give you and read it there.
Okay fine, here’s a little snippet.
Earlier this month, a woman from Atlanta, Georgia claims she lost a job opportunity because a pre-employment drug screen discovered THC metabolites coursing through her veins. But how could this be? She didn’t have a history of marijuana use. The only thing even remotely close to marijuana she consumed before the test was the CBD oil her doctor recommended as a way for her to combat anxiety and pain.
A report from WSB-TV 2 indicates that the woman, who has asked to remain anonymous, used CBD oil for two weeks before she was invited to submit a drug test for a new job. She thought she had nothing to worry about, up until human resources called to tell her she had been disqualified from the applicant pool due to a failed result.
“They expressed that I have a positive THC test,” the woman said. “I have never consumed marijuana in my life.”
Here is the whole story. Enjoy.
