synergy cbd cream shows up on drug test

It is true that THC, an active component in cannabis, can be a stubborn thing to work out of our system unlike harder and more dangerous drugs that can cycle through in 24 hours. The common conception that it takes 30 days to get rid of THC in the system is not exactly accurate; this figure varies for every person and different type of drug test, of which there are a few (hair, urine, and blood).

Cannabis Topicals & Drug Tests

Now here is the good news! When it comes to topicals, the level of THC in the product usually falls way below the detectable level for drug tests. And since you’re rubbing the product onto the surface, they’re only going to seep into your skin and muscles, not your bloodstream. If you need an analogy to help wrap your head around this, the most commonly used one is rubbing alcohol. When you use rubbing alcohol, your blood alcohol content isn’t increasing and you don’t feel drunk. The same idea can be applied to cannabis topicals! That means you can rest easy knowing cannabis salves, lotions, creams, and oils are drug-test safe.

Topicals have a long list of great uses that you might not even realize! People have reported using marijuana topicals to help deal with sore muscles from hard workouts or injuries, skin inflammation, back pain, menstrual cramps, unwinding from a long day, and more.

Among some of the most avid cannabis topical buyers are those that are not interested in getting “high” or inhaling their cannabis. Oftentimes medical marijuana patients, elderly consumers, parents, and athletes seek topicals above any other product type on the shelf at a dispensary. For them, the ability to use something effective all day long, while sitting at a desk or before they drop the kids off at school, makes topicals particularly perfect.

Unfortunately, we are still living in a world where there is a strange gray zone for state-legal cannabis. The state of Colorado may have legalized the sale and use of cannabis for adults, but the federal government still sees it as an illegal substance. And many employers base their drug policies on federal law; these employers continue to include THC and other active compounds in cannabis in their drug testing. That means many people living in legal states still have to worry about testing positive for cannabis despite residing in a place where the substance is completely legal.

What Are Marijuana Topicals?

Here’s what your patients need to know regarding cannabidiol (CBD), tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and drugs testing…

A drug test is targeted towards identifying illicit compounds. In many states, THC is such a substance but CBD is not. Therefore, a CBD drug test is not something you need worry about.

Cannabidiol (CBD) Vs.Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)

Using a hair sample for THC detection is suited to those with a chronic low-use history. This form of testing may identify those whose urinary assessments are normal. Its detection window is “approximately 1 month per half inch of hair. Thus, a 1.5 inch section of hair captures a 90-day window of drug use.” However, drugs can be incorporated into hair through the environment, potentially leading to non-users displaying a positive result.

When a product has any ties to marijuana, it’s natural to receive questions like, “Will I fail a drug test if I use this product?” As a health professional it is important that, whichever CBD products you recommend, you definitively know the answer. With CBD CLINIC™ products, that answer is an emphatic ‘No!’

However, saliva testing can result in false positives so a secondary test may be necessary.
