Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a non psychoactive compound produced by the marijuana plant that seems to be everywhere these days. Maybe you’ve even been asked if you’d like it added to your morning cup of joe! THC, also marijuana-derived, is what gets people high and is screened for by drug tests. The chemical structure of THC is very similar to CBD’s, which begs the question: Could using CBD make you fail a drug test? In this episode of Reactions we break down the chemistry behind the possibilities.
