Delta 8 THC has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its milder euphoric effect and federally legal status. But, will it show up on a drug test? Unfortunately, the answer is yes. Delta 8 can be detected in urine tests, and while there is a loophole surrounding its use, it won't help you pass a drug test. On the other hand, Delta 8 isn't as easily detectable in blood tests.
Heavy Delta 8 users should be prepared to falsely test positive for a drug test for up to 90 days. If you want to try Delta 8 but don't want to fail a drug test, it's best to avoid using it for up to 90 days before the test. Delta-8 and Delta-9 THC are similar cannabinoids, but their chemical structure is slightly different. Delta-9 THC is the form of THC found most abundantly in traditional cannabis products and is the truly illegal form of THC.
While Delta-8 is less potent than Delta-9, it still stays in the body just like any other THC would. The Farm Bill defines hemp as a plant containing less than 0.3% of delta-9 THC in dry weight. So, if you have to pass a drug test, stop using delta-8 because it can stay in your body for up to 90 days. In conclusion, if you're about to take a drug test and you're worried that your Delta-8 consumption will show up on the results, it's best to avoid using it for up to 90 days before the test.
While there is a loophole surrounding the use of delta-8, it won't help you pass a drug test.
