The Answer is YES.
Any employer can test for any substances, including THC, CBD, and any other cannabinoid.
Employers can also refuse or terminate employment on the basis of these test results. Many states like California operate under an employment-at-will doctrine, meaning that if you do not have a contract with your employer, you can be terminated for any reason other than age, race, gender, religion or other protected classes.
In more than one state the courts have upheld the rights of employers to test employees for cannabis, even in states like Oregon and Colorado where recreational marijuana use is legal.
So if you are taking a CBD isolate for pain and your employer tests for CBD you could be fired and it is likely the legal system will be on your employer’s side.
Is this right? Maybe not, but currently this is the law. In time many of these laws will change, and each state, city, and county may have their own laws.
As a Certified CBD Consultant you do not necessarily need to know the laws in every state, county or city, you just need to make sure you are not making blanket statements that it is okay for someone to take CBD and they do not have to worry about passing a drug test. You don’t know what every employer may or may not test for.
It is always best for you to recommend that individuals not only check with their doctor but also check with their employer before taking CBD. Many people are unaware that an employer can test for CBD (we are not saying that all do but some may) even though it is federally legal when it contains less than .3% THC.
PCR Hemp Oil will continue to gain in popularity in its use. It just takes time for our government to catch up on changing laws.
