A question often asked by our readers, or anyone interested in trying the Sugar and Kush CBD gummies or cotton candy CBD oil, is “Will this make me fail a drug test?”

The short answer is no. Using CBD should not make anyone fail a drug screening.

That said, there is still a small possibility of failing a drug test after using CBD products. It all depends on the product’s composition, quality, as well as your intake frequency.


If a CBD product contains enough THC, your drug test will likely have a positive result.

Cannabidiol or CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid. When taken purely on its own, it does not give users a high or show up on any drug screening.

Meanwhile, tetrahydrocannabinol or THC is the main psychoactive or mind-altering cannabinoid found in hemp and other cannabis plants. THC is the compound that induces a high or euphoric effect and shows up on drug tests.

CBD oil can be made from both hemp and marijuana or cannabis plants. However, under the 2018 Farm Bill, only industrial hemp-based CBD products are considered legal on a federal level.

Hemp is a type of cannabis plant specifically grown to have little to no THC. As per federal law, CBD products are not allowed to have more than 0.3% THC content.

Any CBD product whose THC exceeds the prescribed maximum amount is not only illegal but also runs the risk of causing a positive drug test result.

We highly recommend checking the type of CBD used in a product before buying and using it. This can help save you a lot of unnecessary trouble if you ever undergo a drug screening.

Different Types of CBD

Certain types of CBD products may contain THC. When we say type of CBD product, we are not referring to keto CBD gummies or flavored CBD oil.

CBD can be classified into three types: isolates, broad-spectrum, and full-spectrum CBD.

People who use pure CBD oil or products made with CBD isolates should not have to worry about failing a drug screening. CBD isolate oils, edibles, and skincare products do not contain THC.

Customers who sample Sugar and Kush’s CBD products, for example, such as strawberry CBD or vanilla CBD oil, can rest easy as they contain 0% THC. All scrubs and bath bombs are also lab-tested THC-free. 

Broad-spectrum CBD products also do not contain any THC. They do, however, contain other cannabinoids found in hemp plants, so they aren’t 100% CBD.

Full-spectrum CBD, meanwhile, contains a full suite of cannabinoids, including THC. Even full-spectrum CBD oil containing less than 0.3% THC content can still show up in a drug screening if it is taken frequently and in large doses.

Verifying Product Quality

Oversight and regulations on CBD products are still lacking. There are still no standardized doses for taking CBD oil or quality assurance checks for CBD products.

One way you can minimize the risk of using a CBD oil with THC is to do research and check the laboratory reports for the product.

Companies are required to provide Certificates of Analysis for each product or batch of CBD oil they sell. A Certificate of Analysis is a document certifying that a product, in this case, CBD oil, has passed quality checks and tests.

These certificates should be issued by accredited and independent laboratories. Even if a CBD product does have a corresponding Certificate of Analysis, you should still double-check to ensure the issuing third-party laboratory is accredited and trustworthy.

Aside from showing the CBD potency and THC content, these certificates also serve as proof that the products passed tests for contaminants, like pesticides and solvents.


Proper research and due diligence before buying and using any CBD product go a long way to ensure that you don’t fail a drug test. A brand or seller that does not offer Certificates of Analysis is a huge red flag.

Sugar and Kush, for example, are fully committed to transparency. All of their products, from CBD oil vanilla to CBD-infused body butter, have corresponding lab reports.

You can easily find Certificates of Analysis on the Lab Reports page. Sugar and Kush reviews each product sold on the shop to ensure its overall quality and THC content. 

If you’re looking for high-quality CBD products backed by science, proper testing, and rave reviews, then look no further. Sugar and Kush is here for all your CBD needs and will ensure that you pass your drug test.
