In fact, when Penn Medicine researchers bought CBD products online and then analyzed their ingredients, they found that about one in five contained up to 6.4 mg/ML of THC — high enough to cause impairment. And in 2018, the CDC released a report that found that more than 50 people in Utah were poisoned by CBD products that actually contained synthetic marijuana commonly known as Spice and K2. If you have to take a drug test and use CBDWhile the information here suggests CBD won’t make anyone fail a drug test, there’s no way to guarantee that. The only way to ensure you will pass a drug test is to abstain from using any sort of CBD product.The information contained in this article is for educational and informational purposes only and is not intended as health or medical advice.

Comments 11 2:31 Canva You nailed your cover letter and rocked the interview. All that’s standing between you and an awesome new job is a mandatory drug screening. Will that CBD oil you’ve been taking for pain relief cause you to fail the test?This story discusses substances that are legal in some places but not in others and is for informational purposes only and not for the purpose of providing legal advice. You shouldn’t do things that are illegal — this story does not endorse or encourage illegal drug use. How cannabis drug tests work Canva When it comes to marijuana, drug tests typically only screen for THC — the compound in cannabis that gets you “high” — or one of the compounds created when your body metabolizes it. And by law CBD products can only contain up to 0.3% THC. Different types of drug tests have different detection thresholds, but the type you’re most likely to encounter is the “pee test.” To pass a urine drug test, the amount of THC in your body must be below 50 ng/mL. That’s the cutoff recommended federally by the National Institutes of Health and clinically by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, which helps set industry standards for lab certifications. To hit 50 ng/mL of THC, you’d probably have to consume upwards of 2,000 mg of CBD products that contain 0.3% or less of THC, which is much higher than the average person is likely to take. Even in clinical trials and research studies, people are usually only administered 100-800mg/day. So you’re in the clear, right? Not quite. There are two ways you could hit that 50 ng/mL mark.Why CBD might cause you to fail a drug testFirst, THC is fat-soluble, so when you ingest it — especially via edibles or a drop of oil under the tongue — it’s absorbed along with other fats and can be stored in your body’s fatty tissue. Depending on how much CBD (and thus THC), you consume, how often you consume it, your body weight and your diet, it’s possible for THC to accumulate in your body in as little as four to six days and trigger a positive drug test. Research has found that THC can be detectable in your system for up to 30 days, but it’s usually only present in heavy cannabis users after the first week.

Photo Illustration by LA Johnson/NPR2018 Education Predictions CollageOn the NPR Ed Team, I am what you might call the grizzled veteran. I’ve seen education trends come and go and come again. And go again.You get the idea.In years past, around December, my teammates would often pause by my desk and ask: “What do you think we’ll be covering next year?”I’ve always found this a fun thought exercise, and, at some point, my editor suggested I jot down my answers and share them beyond our cubicles. And so, here are a few predictions for 2018.A quick reminder, though: I don’t have a real crystal ball or a time machine. Just gut instinct, which occasionally fails me.1. DACA will endSince 2012, the federal policy known as DACA — Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals — has protected roughly 800,000 undocumented immigrants from deportation. Under DACA, immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children are able to stay, work and get an education. A few months ago, the Trump administration announced it was ending the Obama-era program but left open the possibility that Congress could re-instate it by March 2018.I predict that conservative lawmakers, fearful of looking weak on immigration in an election year, will let DACA die. The reaction of DACA students, especially the 241,000 enrolled in college, will be swift and furious. And though it is unlikely they would be deported immediately or en masse, most will eventually be forced to quit school and surrender their driver’s licenses and work permits.2. U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos will step downThis is a leap, I know, but, since her turbulent confirmation, DeVos has had a rough time building trust with educators who question her support of public schools. In 2018, her relationship with state education officials will deteriorate and tip the scales against her.Politically, DeVos will grow increasingly irrelevant and isolated, and, by the end of 2018, she will decide to pursue her agenda as a private citizen. President Trump will be too preoccupied with mid-term elections to persuade her to stay.3. Higher education will dominate headlinesThe nation is in a student financial aid crisis, which will only get worse in 2018, especially if Republicans’ tax overhaul hits college students as hard as some predict. And, though there are no prominent court cases pending, many colleges and universities will revisit the hotly contested issue of race’s role in admissions policies.Also, intense news coverage of sexual harassment and sexual assault in the workplace will spread to campuses, where both have been a problem. The focus will be on the predatory behavior of male faculty and administrators.4. After years of modest progress, closing the achievement gap between rich and poor, black and white, will hit a wallWith the federal government now scaling back its oversight of public education, vocal critics of the Education Department under President Obama will have a chance to prove that, when it comes to education, locals know best.But, under the new federal education law, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), efforts to close the achievement gap will suffer. Not only that, one trend will dominate in 2018: the continued segregation of students by race and income and its impact on learning.Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/.

The WebUSB API support allows Web apps to communicate with additional hardware accessories apart from the usual ones like keyboard, mice, and printers. This includes access to industrial, scientific, and education-related USB accessories.With full availability of PaymentRequest API, developers can now offer secure, seamless checkout experiences across platforms. The Device RAM API is now available on Chrome 61, letting developers know the amount of RAM on a user’s device to sites to optimize overall performance of a web application. Also, the Network Information API is now available on desktop as well as Android, enabling sites to access the underlying connection information of a device. – Advertisement – Lastly, Chrome 61 is important because it brings 22 security fixes, and all of them are listed here.Chrome 61.0.3163.79 should reach all users in the coming weeks. If you haven’t already received the update, check manually by clicking the menu icon, navigating to Help > About Chrome, and see if the latest version has arrived. If it has, it will automatically start updating to the latest version.Chrome 61 for Android brings an updated Google Translate toolbar that allows you to switch between preferred languages, and change the default one if you so desire. The floating menu that shows up when you press and hold a link or image has also been changed to be more intuitive and show common actions first.For video using native controls, Chrome 61 will now automatically expand video to full-screen when a user rotates their device in an orientation that matches a video playing on the screen. Furthermore, when navigating from an installed Wweb app to a site outside the initial Web app’s scope, the new site now automatically loads in a Custom Chrome Tab.There’s also the addition of WebShare API to trigger the native Android share dialogue, allowing the user to easily share text or links with any of their installed native apps. In a future release, this API will also be able to share to installed Web apps. Earlier, developers have had to manually integrate sharing buttons into their site for each social service. This often leads to users not being able to share with the services they actually use, in addition to bloated page sizes and security risks from including third-party code. read more
