CBD vs A Custody Battle?


The only CBD that is federally legal is any that is 0.3% or less THC by volume. Distributors can not legally sell online to all 50 states unless the CBD product reaches those guidelines. Let's make sure we're clear on that.

In the rare case that you aren't properly advised about your CBD intake, it is possible to perk a positive test for THC, even if your product reaches the 0.3% THC or less guideline.

A friend of ours reached out, DESPERATELY, in search of answers. A fingernail drug test resulted with a (barely) positive amount of THC. Every other lab result came back normal - meaning every other method of testing; urine, blood, hair follicle, was NEGATIVE.

While this case is still open, we will refrain from disclosing names for her safety. Her story begins here:

"So just to keep it short, and not drag in all my drama, I use to smoke when I was married (he did too). He found out that he could use it against me, once we were separated, and he did. My baby was taken from me at 3 months old. I fought in court and got him back, thank God. I had to battle my anxiety somehow - because God knows anxiety would alter my potential as a mom, personally speaking, much more than anything natural available to me. CBD oil changed my life. It changed my life, helped me sleep, ,and relieved my anxiety. Then, about 5 months ago, I had to take a drug test - 10 panel fingernail test and FAILED for THC. I haven't smoked, Haylie! I don't know what else could cause this besides the 4000 mg tincture I was taking. Everyone is telling me it absolutely can NOT happen.

Baffled, I went to take a hair, blood, and urine test and passed them all. I was trying to get the lab to explain to me how this is possible, but they wouldn't speak on it. The failed THC test on the fingernail result was extremely low. Barely over the "cut off" line. So here i am, I've lost my child over a natural remedy that helps me! While there are parents out there abusing prescription medication because they can receive it legally! And they legitimately put their kids in harms way, who still have full custody of their kids. I don't get it. I never knew my son could be taken because of CBD - something well within the federal guidelines according to the labs presented on the product I bought.

And, really... DHS or anyone government related wouldn't take him because of this! But you throw in a mad ex with some money and BOOM. They find a way to use it against you. It is completely backwards."
