Does CBD Show Up On Drug Tests And Is CBD Oil Legal In The UK?

A question we have been asked time and time again since we first started in 2018. So let's jump in and give you peace of mind about the legality of CBD and how to avoid accidentally falling into the trap of taking a THC product without realising it! 

We appreciate how importance being legal is for peace of mind, especially when it comes to your work. So this guide his here to help put your mind at ease. 

Does CBD Show up on drug tests and is CBD Oil Legal in the UK?

This isn't an article trying to keep you on the page with the answer hidden at the bottom, it's here to be helpful so let's get straight to the point, then jump into the detail below if you want to learn more! 

Does CBD show up on drugs tests in the UK? 

Typically THC is the compound that is tested for, so CBD itself isn't going to show up on those tests as they are not looking for it. There are tests available that can look for CBD content, but honestly it's unlikely you'll encounter one as CBD is legal and perfectly fine to be in your system. If unsure for work you can always talk to HR but honestly we believe this is an unlikely step. 

We totally appreciate the concern here, having been selling online and on the high street going as far back as 2018 we've met plenty of customers with the same questions. We have also spoken to HR managers from big companies to find out their take on it. The general consensus is that CBD is a non issue, but the worst case scenario would be discussing it with your doctor to get a supporting letter if concerned. 

There is one caveat to this though. Some CBD products may contain THC, and if not made to the right standards, they may even contain high enough levels to trigger a drug test. So this is why it is so vital to opt for a trust worthy brand/ product that has stood the test of the time being consistent and meeting the FSA's rigerous standards and have things lab tested and manufacturing controls in palce to ensure this etc. You could unknowingly be buying an illegal product, just as easily as a seller may be unaware if the seller hasn't done their checks either.

Is CBD legal in the UK? 

In short, yes CBD is legal in the UK.

The CBD that is used in CBD products as an ingredient comes in various forms or 'extracts' from the hemp/ cannabis plant. Some of these strip away absolutely everything else leaving 99.9% pure CBD. This is often known as CBD Isolate as it has isolated the CBD from every other compound. As this has therefor removed all traces of THC and other illegal compounds found in the plant. CBD Isolate or products containing it are completely legal. Another type of extract is known a 'Broad Spectrum' extract. This if done properly is a full plant extract that has also extracted other useful compounds from the plant such as CBG, CBN, CBDA and even terpenes/ flavinoids. The important note here is that to be classified as a 'Broad Spectrum' CBD product, it needs to contain other Cannabinoids but NOT THC, or at least no THC above 0.00%. This type of extract is deemed a better quality and more effective option over CBD Isolate. If you're looking for products using this extract click HERE

Then lastly you have Full Spectrum extractd which do contain THC up to the legal limit of 0.2% THC or 1mg of THC per product. These products have incredinbly low levels of THC and are unlikely to be enough to show up on tests, however it isn't guaranteed.

How to be legal and safe with CBD in the UK

So when it comes to whether CBD Oil shows up in drug tests or if it's legal in the UK, we don't blame you for wanting to be certain. 

Taking a punt on a random brand isn't worth losing your job over, which is why it's so important to know what your buying is trustworthy and consistent. 

So the key things we recommend looking for are: 

Has the brand got verified reviews from real customers supporting a consistent and effective product? 

Do they supply lab reports that show THC levels for the specific product you are purchasing not just the source extract? 

Are the CBD Oil drops on the FSA's CBD Novel Foods list with an approved status? 

If you can tick the above boxes you are most of the way there, but any reputable brand will be happy to answer any further questions if you reach out!
