As CBD continues to make its way around the world, the craze has consumers curious about the possibilities of other cannabinoids beyond the traditionally-known cannabis molecule, delta-9 THC. The new up-and-comer seems to be delta-8 THC, which is known to cause effects similar to delta-9, though tends to impart a more subdued, controlled experience.
Delta-8’s rise in popularity is largely thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, legislation that has permitted hemp-derived products in all 50 U.S. states. Delta-8 THC preparations can be derived from hemp and contain less than .3%, thus making them a hemp product that can be widely sold and distributed similar to CBD products (though some states have additional delta-8 specific laws).
How to Pass a Drug Test If You Consume Delta-8 THC?
The first and most obvious way to pass a drug test if you’ve been consuming delta-8 THC is the same as delta-9, cease consumption for a period of time long enough for your body to process it out. The general rule of thumb is 3-4 weeks, however, the actual time will vary by person, depending on consumption habits and the speed of their metabolism.
If time is a factor, again, trusted methods that work for delta-9 will work here as well. Methods used will differ depending on a saliva, urine, or hair test. Again, while these are separate cannabinoids, drug tests see them similarly, and thus methods that help with one will do so the other. Outside of obtaining independent lab testing beforehand, the best bet to know if you’ll pass a cannabis drug test is to buy one over the counter and test your preferred deterrent at home. Be aware though, at-home drug tests have a few quirks to know about.
