But Could CBD Make You Fail a Drug Test?

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a non psychoactive compound produced by the marijuana plant that seems to be everywhere these days. Maybe you’ve even been asked if you’d like it added to your morning cup of joe! THC, also marijuana-derived, is what gets people high and is screened for by drug tests. The chemical structure of THC is very similar to CBD’s, which begs the question: Could using CBD make you fail a drug test? In this episode of Reactions we break down the chemistry behind the possibilities.

  1. You realize if CBD gets proven that it helps with those things it'd put big pharma out of business. So big pharma spends millions to fight CBD as well as legalization of marijuana. Funny how they banned marijuana research too they don't want you knowing it's a better alternative. If research was legal on it this would have been legal a long time ago. Both for CBD and THC.

  7. Medical marijuana existing in majority of USA proves having weed as a schedule 1 makes no sense at all. Schedule 1 means it would have no medical benefits. They contradict themselves. Just proves government doesn't care about you they care about money

  8. Medical marijuana is legal in majority of the USA. Marijuana is classified as a schedule 1 which means it would have no medical benefits. Medical marijuana existing proves our government is full of 💩

  9. Medical exists in majority of states. Schedule 1 means has no med value. Medical existing proves they're liars. But they banned marijuana research. Makes sense right. All about $. Big pharma pays them off

  10. Your government would rather you die than admit cannabis is a medical plant. Even when medical marijuana exists in majority of US states. Them making it schedule 1 proves that. And banning research
