Nowadays, CBD is pretty common in different products, including vape pens, tinctures, and even CBD flower and prerolls. Even though THC and CBD are different, you might wonder if lighting up your favorite CBD joint might show up on a drug test.
Well, this is rather complicated, but that’s why we’ve put together an article that breaks down this topic. First, we’ll talk about CBD pre-rolls and what they are, then how drug tests work and if they flag CBD, and lastly, some of our top recommendations for CBD hemp flower.

What are CBD Pre-Rolls?

First, let’s delve into what CBD is and what prerolls are. Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is one of the major cannabinoids in cannabis, particularly hemp. This cannabinoid naturally occurs in the plant and is believed to have many effects, such as aiding in relaxation and supporting sleep, as well as anxiolytic and even sedative effects.

CBD can be consumed in many ways. From actual hemp flower to extracts, edibles like gummies, pills, and even topical ointments, other popular ways to enjoy this cannabinoid are vape pens (extracts) and smoking actual hemp strains. This is where pre-rolls meet CBD.

A preroll is a ready-made joint that uses ground flowers, a filter, and paper to have your bud on the go. Think of it as having dispensary-rolled jays for you to enjoy anywhere. Now, pre-rolls can have CBD hemp flower as well. Since there are many strains out there, you can try a wide variety of flavor profiles and have a sweet smoking experience without the psychoactive effects of THC.

Can CBD Flower Make You Fail a Urine Test?

This is where it gets a little more complicated than a yes-or-no answer, but we have some insights about this. Usually, drug screenings and tests do not look for CBD. These tests are usually designed to detect Delta-9 THC metabolites formed when THC is processed in the liver, primarily 11-hydroxy-THC.

CBD flower usually does not contain THC. However, some extracts and tinctures have traces of Delta-9 THC that might cause you to fail a drug test. Since full-spectrum formulas and vape pen extracts might have some THC traces, this might show up in metabolites even if it didn’t have a psychoactive effect on the user.

Other hemp-derived cannabinoids might be different. While Delta-8 THC, a hemp-derived cannabinoid, might show up thanks to its similar composition, cannabinoids like CBG or HHC (both fully legal) aren't likely to be identified in a standard urine drug test. Still, specialized cannabis tests might find other metabolites in your blood.

So CBD itself is not likely to show up in over-the-counter tests. But CBD products may still contain traces of THC that could be flagged. That's why it's best to avoid any cannabis products if you know you are going to be tested.

Where to Buy CBD Flower

At Botany Farms, we specialize in hemp-based products. Specifically, we offer delicious CBD-based hemp buds. Our top three recommendations of hemp strains are the delicious and energizing Sativa Elektra, the spooky-with-a-sweet-side Indica Zombie Kush, or the best of both worlds, Super Sour Space Candy.

Elektra is an incredibly potent strain if you want to feel energized or want to try smoking flower during the day. With 22.6% of total cannabinoids, this bud falls on the strong side with sweet citrus, berry, and fuel-like notes.

For something a little more fruity and relaxing, the spooky vibes strain Zombie Kush is a great option. And with its delicious piney, berry, and even hoppy notes, the smoke from this bud is pretty sweet and mild on the palate. Also, users have reported strong feelings of relaxation thanks to its high CBDa levels.

As for one of our favorite hybrids, the Super Sour Space Candy strain has mind-blowing, pale olive tones. This strain is perfectly balanced for all kinds of users. Its 22.% of total cannabinoids can help you relax without fully knocking you down. It has one of the smoothest profiles around, with lemon, sour apple, and a little bit of diesel-like notes. You’ll love the balanced tokes that will relax in a flash.

If CBD flower on its own is a little bit of a hassle, you can also try out our Sour Hawaiian Haze Prerolls. These come with premium paper and packed-down, pre-ground buds, ready to light up and enjoy. This strain leans on the Sativa side of the spectrum and has a delicious taste profile. With delicious guava, mango, and tropical fruit notes, mixed with some sour undertones, this strain is perfect for new users to try CBD hemp flower for the first time.

Similarly, you can always try our Live Resin CBD + THC Tincture. With Super Sour Space Candy as its base, this tincture has delicious and all-natural notes of lemon and sour apple with its hefty 1500mg of CBD per bottle. Be mindful, though, as this has a full-spectrum formula and might show traces of THC metabolites on over-the-counter drug tests. However, it has no psychoactive effects due to the minimal amount of actual Delta-9 THC in the formula.
