If you use CBD oil, there's a chance to could fail a drug test.

I know a lot of people who take CBD oil for different ailments. Some of them have to take random drug tests for work. I thought you were okay and didn't have to worry about failing but apparently, it's possible.

According to fox32chicago.com,

"CBD oils, edibles, and supplements may be all the rage, but experts warn: check the label, or it could cost you a job. Experts say they’re seeing a growing number of pre-employment drug tests coming back red-flagged for THC, the stuff in marijuana, even though the people being tested claim to only be taking store-bought CBD."

How can that happen?

"CBD oil can come in two ways: one, CBD oil, but it also can be hemp-based. The hemp version that can cause testers problems. Hemp comes from the same family of plants as marijuana, so the CBD products made with it can carry very small amounts of THC; experts say up to 0.3%. That’s not enough to get the user high, but any amount is enough to red flag a drug test."

Please be careful if you use CBD oil and have to take drug tests.
