Theoretically should be fine

 A urine and blood test are different though. THC can show up a long time on a blood drug test, not sure if use of small.amounts is culmative. 

 

He should bring those printouts with him… if tested

.unsure of how standarized the thc content is, nor regulated.  

 

My fh is an HEO, he won’t risk any CBD product.

Absolutely do not risk it. Testing positive for THC will lead to an immediate dismissal from any government job, no matter the reason or state. It will also prevent him from being hired at any place that has gov’t contracts, which could be a lot of shipping companies. I know there are at least a few CBD brands that are independently tested to be THC free  – look into those as the chance is not worth his job.

sewingbee :  the the thc content is not very accurate  or regulated. There was a story on this recently. I would not trust it for something as major as a drug test.

I agree with what they said! I have pretty bad anxiety but it wouldn’t be worth losing a job over if the company didn’t really use THC-free. Maybe look into alternative products? 

edited to add that I meant other natural treatments like lavender & meditation

I would say it depends on where you get it from, but ultimately don’t risk it. 
i work in a substance use setting and where we drug test frequently. We have people who have used sketchy gas station CBD products and come up positive for THC after years of nothing but clean drug screens and it really messed up a lot of privileges for them at our clinic. 
We also have a population of patients who we lovingly refer to as “amateur botanists”(our patients who grow their own). They’ll say if you go to a reputable source, like a dispensary, you’ll be a lot safer. They’ll say the method you use it also affect it too, so topically vs injesting it. My husband gets drug tested regularly at his job and he uses CBD bath bombs for his chronic pain and he’s never come up, but the patients at my clinic vape or eat CBD and occasionally come up for THC. 

But just from what I’ve seen, I wouldn’t risk it.

Is your husband seeing a medical professional about his anxiety? I’d definitely start there if you haven’t already! My husband has anxiety too and has had to try a few different (prescribed) medications over the years, but we finally landed on one that seems to be really helping. I’d be very wary about trying things willy nilly on your own. I’m a believer in CBD oil in theory, but there are so many different products out there and it’s not well regulated at all right now. Can’t speak to the drug testing risk.

mcoutinho :  Government attorney and I 100% would not risk it.  I’ve seen quite a few people get immediately fired for popping positive.

yeah, I wouldn’t risk it, it only takes one bad batch with THC then you are screwed.

mcoutinho :  Ah okay. Is there any chance he would switch jobs at some point to one that doesn’t require drug testing? My (admittedly limited) understanding of CBD oil is that the type with THC is really much more effective than the types that don’t have THC. I have several family members who have benefited immensely from it for various ailments, and I’ve also seen how it can help pets! I hope you guys can find a solution soon. Anxiety is the worst.

I would get an actual prescription for it from a doctor before persuing this, just to be safe. That way if it does show up in a drug test he can produce paperwork showing he has a legitimate reason for using it.
