Share your voice Second, there’s a good chance that the CBD product you’re using contains more than the .3% THC legally allowed. 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.

Representational imageTwitterAll eyes are set on the upcoming Union Budget 2018, which will define the direction of the Indian economy. There are many expectations from the government as the GST Council tinkers with the tax slabs on numerous goods and services.From salaried personnel to small and medium enterprise owners, and the taxpaying community, the upcoming budget will be relevant to all. Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley will roll out a populist Budget on February 1, which will either meet all expectations of analysts and businesses or contradict them. Either way, optimism is running high among the worried taxpayers.One particular company, Super Plastronics Pvt Ltd (SPPL), which holds exclusive Kodak Brand Licensees for Kodak HD LED TV’s in India, has high expectations from the government concerning the upcoming budget. Taking into consideration the last year’s reforms – GST and demonetisation – SPPL director and CEO Avneet Singh Marwah shares some ideas on improving India’s economy by supporting OEMs with reduced tax. Avneet Singh Marwah – SPPL CEO & DirectorSPPL PR handout”Last year, the consumer electronics industry saw a decline by 10-15 percent due to 2 major reforms (GST and Demonetisation). However, despite the initial decline, we welcome the reforms introduced by the government,” Marwah said in an email statement.In the previous Union Budget, televisions were put under 28 percent tax slab, which largely affected sales of TVs, especially offline, in the third quarter. Kodak TV head hopes the government considers a reduction or the company will face dire situations.”If the government does not consider a reduction, we may see jobs cut down by 35 percent. Many companies have already started laying off their workforce. If India wishes to maintain its ‘fastest growing economy’ tag, then we must increase consumerism, which can’t be achieved by placing a 28 percent tax bracket on a consumer electronics like smart televisions,” Marwah added. Kodak 55-inch 4K UHD Smart TVKodakMarwah compared India’s television market with other countries and found a setback in our country’s growth. The main reason cited by him was sub-12 percent tax structure.”In India, the average screen size which was predicted to be at 38″ in year 2017-18, still remains at 33″, in comparison,” he explained, adding that the “expectations from this budget for the consumer electronics industry is high and we hope that the government is able to balance the reformed taxes with the income-expenditure of the layman.”Will the Narendra Modi government live up to the expectations of the taxpayers? We’ll know soon enough. read more
