'I learned the hard way:' Woman warns others after failed drug test after CBD oil use
PORTLAND, Ore. – A woman in Oregon said she would warn others who use CBD products, especially if they are looking for work.
CBD products should only have traces of THC and not get any high, but can it cost any job?
Suzan Chandler said the answer is, "Yes."
"I learned it the hard way," Chandler said.
Chandler, a nurse from Hillsboro, Oregon, said she was up for a new job at an emergency clinic. The final step was a urine drug test.  "Shocks of all bumps that it tested positive," she said.
Chandler said she had taken some hemp protein and CBD oil for the sedative. She said she never touched marijuana, even though her test came positive back for THC.
"And then, my position was lifted," she said. "I never believed. I have never used a product consciously with THC. I wouldn't. "
Renee Barnes, co-owner of the Portland store CBD-lish, said it is important for consumers to shop in places where they can be educated and read the labels.
"If they are looking for a tincture, then we normally talk to them about full spectrum versus broad spectrum," Barnes said. can not contain more than 0.3%.
Wide range does not contain THC, according to Barnes.
"I think I gave one of our customers, it was a wide range. It was not a full range, and he was a bus driver, so we didn't want him to start taking it and failing his drug test, "she said.
Barnes said that taking a full spectrum is certainly not & # 39; That means you will fail a test. But not knowing how your body processes the product, she said it's safer to stay away from your work line.
“We've had firefighters. We've had cops. We've had people do jobs that are very, you know, essential that they don't, and you know, we talk to them about it, "Barnes said.
When it comes to Chandler, she said she didn't. " I blame the employer who took the offer back.
"We get the drug screened for a reason, and there are good reasons," Chandler said. "They just have to treat all the employees who test the same."
Chandler said she wanted to warn others.
"Suddenly our family doesn't have my income. It's a significant change in income," she said. "So after all that wave, I decided I wanted to make sure other people could learn it and not have to go through that family ours has. "
Since the failed drug test, Chandler said she began to do a lot of research, and now knows the difference between full and wide range.
She said she still believes in CBD and that it can to help people, but she relinquishes everyone – unwilling to chance for any product.
