Cannabis products and its health benefits are known to everyone. CBD products such as CBD tinctures, gummies, topical, capsules, and vapes help in alleviating many of your health problems. These health problems include stress, anxiety, pain, epilepsy, skin problems, etc. Since the use of CBD topical for pain relief is rapidly increasing, people are starting to worry if the use of CBD topical can trigger a positive result in the drug test.
Before answering that question you need to know about CBD topical and its effect on human body.
CBD topical is a cream, balm, ointment or a lotion infused with highly concentrated CBD oil. CBD topical is applied on the surface of the body. This makes it a therapeutic drug rather than a recreational drug. Topical application of CBD creams, lotions, balms, etc. can help in relieving the pain and inflammation in the targeted areas.
Proper application of CBD topical ensures a faster relief of pain. When the CBD is applied topically on the areas of pain, the skin absorbs most of the CBD and immediately takes effect. Only a insignificant amount of CBD goes in to the bloodstream. CBD topical ensures the long lasting effect of CBD in your body.
CBD is a non-psychoactive compound. So it does not give you a high. THC is the main cannabinoid compound that has psychoactive properties. But in CBD oil and topical, the amount of THC is less than 0.3 %. This amount will not enable users to get high. Therefore, they are completely safe to use CBD topical products.
Since CBD topical does not get you high and the amount of THC in CBD topical is very low, it is highly unlikely that you fail in the drug test. A study in 2017 confirmed that a topical use of CBD does not give a positive result in the drug test.
Since skin absorbs the CBD content and the trace amount of THC before reaching the bloodstream, a blood test or urine test do not show any THC content to make you fail in the drug test. But if you use a CBD topical with THC content more than 0.3 %, you will definitely fail in the drug test.
So make sure to buy quality CBD products from reputed brands and read through the pack to ensure that the THC content is less than 0.3 %. Today most of the American states legalized the use of CBD and CBD products for therapeutic uses.
