A CBD isolate is a pure compound with no other active compounds or cannabinoids. The full-spectrum compounds may include other active chemicals, such as cannabinol and cannabis terpenes (the part of the plant that gives the plant its aroma).
Cannabis is the umbrella term describing hemp and marijuana plants—two different varieties of the Cannabis genus. Both marijuana and hemp can be described as cannabis, but they are two different plants.
Using Product With THC
While some CBD oils claim to be isolates, they may be full-spectrum oils and actually contain more cannabinoids (such as THC) than they claim.
However, the distinction between full-spectrum oils and isolates makes all the difference if you are being tested for drug use.

What are the odds that CBD oil users will test positive when subjected to illicit drug screenings? And what can be done to prevent it?
Saliva Test “Pros”:
This study found that those consuming CBD products with less than 0.3% THC consistently flagged false positives on their urine tests. Whereas those consuming Zero THC CBD were clear 99.5% of the time (only 1 out of 218 urine samples were positive). Scientists surmised that this one positive result could be due to error.
How Accurate Is The Test?
In the invent you flag a false positive on an oral fluid test, here are some important things to keep in mind.
The Verdict On CBD and Saliva Drug Tests
Further research needs to be done, however this is a landmark study pointing us in the proper direction.
