CBD may cause false-positive drug tests, Arizona's largest health system warns

From The Arizona Republic | Health by Christina van Waasbergen

CBD shouldn't contain marijuana's psychoactive ingredient, but ingesting it may still result in a failed drug test, officials with Arizona's largest health system are warning.

People in Arizona and across the country have claimed they failed a drug test when they've only used CBD, Banner Health cautioned Tuesday in a written statement.

Banner said some CBD products may contain small amounts of THC, leading to positive drug tests. Banner did not specify how many failed tests have been reported.

Multiple reports from the FDA and independent labs have shown CBD products containing much more THC than would be explained by legal hemp sources, Dudley's statement says.
