The results are in! You can safely take broad-spectrum Hammer CBD and pass any drug test.
I'm reporting our findings after 240 days of usage and testing. Not surprisingly, all three test subjects passed tests with flying colors!
Since the introduction of Hammer Nutrition's CBD products, we have heard from hundreds of clients who are excited about the benefits of CBD but scared to use it. Even though our broad-spectrum product is labeled 0.0% THC, we get the same question over and over: “If I take your CBD, will I fail my drug test?” This is a question that I have been very keen to address.
Other clients have been told they should only use CBD isolate, because broad-spectrum CBD products could lead to false positives due to the other cannabidiol components (CBG, CBN, etc.).
Saying a product does not contain a substance and verifying this through ingestion and testing are two different things. So, I decided to develop a simple protocol that would answer this question once and for all.
A five-panel urine test, with a limit of detection (LOD) of 1 part per billion, is the most sensitive, most accurate, and most widely used drug test available. It is used by DOT, law enforcement, military, fire, medical, and for most corporate drug tests. The goal was to determine the answer to both client questions.
For test subjects, I found three people who have never consumed THC before. Details of each subject and their specific test results can be found on the next page.
After passing the initial control test, all three subjects began consuming 50 mg per day of Hammer Nutrition's water-soluble nano-emulsified CBD. Tests were conducted at 30 days and 60 days. After the 60-days, none of the three subjects showed any signs of THC in their system. Two of the subjects then ended their trial.
The third subject (Subject C) was happy to continue the tests and accelerate the dosages being consumed daily with each successive negative test. After the 30-day test, he increased his daily dosage to 100 mg per day. Every 30 days, the dosage was increased by 50 mg per day. Tests every 30 days were negative even after 240 days of increased loading.
At 310 pounds, Subject C is approximately twice the weight of our average client. That’s why we are testing abnormally high dosages. On a side note, he is reporting amazing results in the usual areas of benefits with regard to sleep, quality, relaxation, and mood.
We set out to answer a very important question: If you take broad-spectrum Hammer CBD, will you fail a drug test? The answer is an emphatic NO! I realize the consequences of failing a drug test could be catastrophic. However, I also know many who desperately want to have access to CBD and its myriad benefits but are being told not to risk it.
I cannot speak for any other brand of CBD, but I am 100% confident that you can use Hammer Nutrition's CBD broad-spectrum products with complete peace of mind. They will not cause you to fail any drug test.
All subjects were tested with a 5-panel urine analysis for detecting Methamphetamines and Amphetamines, THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), Cocaine, Opiates and PCP (Phencyclidine). All subjects confirmed that there were not any of these substances in their systems. All received an “N” for negative. All subjects then began to consume 50 mg daily of broad-spectrum Hammer CBD softgels (phytocannabinoid-rich hemp oil, made from the whole plant).
All three subjects tested negative for all five drugs and Subject C increased his dosage to 100 mg daily.
The next day of testing showed the same negative results for all five drugs for each subject. Subject M and S stopped the trial after 60 days while Subject C continued increasing his dosage.
Subject C tested negative for all five drugs again and increased his dosage to 200 mg daily.
Subject C tested negative at 120 days and maintained his dosage of 200 mg daily.
Subject C tested negative for all five drugs again and maintained his dosage of 200 mg daily.
Subject C tested negative for all five drugs again and increased his dosage to 300 mg daily.
Subject C tested negative for all five drugs again.
The results after 240 days of testing concluded that the usage of broad-spectrum Hammer CBD (0.0% THC) and derivatives (CBG, CBN, CBC, CBD-A, CBDV) will not cause a false positive for THC. If there is any THC found in urine samples, it would be safe to say that the failed subject has consumed marijuana (tetrahydrocannabinol). THC usually stores within lipid cells up to a month after THC consumption, depending on the consumer’s BMI. Test subjects in Hammer Nutrition’s CBD system loading (30-, 60-, and 90-day), ranges from 27.4 BMI to 42.0 BMI, proving that our broad-spectrum products will not cause a failure in testing.
