Help! Does Delta-10 THC Show Up on Drug Tests?
Sep 17, 2021
Delta-10 THC is changing the way we think about cannabinoids and the world in which we live. We now have access to an all-natural hemp extract that allows us to feel a euphoric buzz anytime we want for the first time ever. And unlike other cannabinoids like Delta-8 THC or Delta-9, Delta-10 THC has a real purpose beyond the buzz. Thanks to this sativa-like cannabinoid, users like you can now feel a blast of energy, creativity, and focus like never before.
Delta-10 is turning people Hyper all across the country. With Hyper Brand Delta-10 Vapes and Hyper Brand Delta-10 Gummies, you can whiz through your day without feeling groggy or tired. There’s no task too big or too small that can’t be tackled thanks to this new and novel cannabinoid. Hemp has always been one of the more miraculous plants grown on planet earth, but with Delta-10 THC, it’s reached a whole new level.
So there is absolutely nothing that could kill your buzz right now. Well, almost nothing.
Because a question we get around here at the CBD Mall a lot (and we mean a lot) is about drug tests. Can Delta-10 THC make you fail a drug test? It’s a fair question and one that you should have the answers to, so you can make informed decisions about your use.
We know that 99.99% of the time, CBD won’t turn up on a drug test. Even when your CBD has up to the federal limit of 0.3% THC in it, chances are you will be fine. However, there are exceptions. Sometimes false positives happen. Sometimes drug tests widen their ranges so that even the tiniest amount of THC shows up. But for the most part, you’re safe with CBD. We caution you that there are no guarantees here and that it’s always best to abstain from everything if you have to take a drug test, but these are the facts as we know them.
Delta-8 THC, on the other hand, will most definitely cause you to fail a drug test. That’s because Delta-8 THC is so close in chemical structure to Delta-9, or cannabis. Chances are, if you use Delta-8 THC, it will register as good old-fashioned cannabis when you pee in that cup, and, well, you probably don’t want that to happen — we rarely see people who take drug tests because they need to have drugs in their system. So in the case of Delta-8, you should definitely abstain if you’re going to be tested.
“Delta-8 may not have effects as strong as those of its more potent counterparts (such as delta-9 THC), but it can show up on a drug test regardless,” one site noted. “Therefore, you will need to be careful about rushing into scheduling a test immediately after you have used a delta-8 product.”
But what about Delta-10 THC? Will Delta-10 make you fail a drug test?
Yes, yes, it will.
Oh No! Delta-10 THC Will Make Me Fail a Drug Test?
So there’s bad news, but there’s also good news. The bad news is that yes, Delta-10 THC will make you fail a drug test. Much like Delta-8 THC, Delta-10 is a close cousin to Delta-9. It too has a similar chemical structure meaning that Delta-10 THC will most likely appear as THC on a standard drug test. So, if you have to pop clean, you’ll need to abstain for a few days before the test.
The truth is, it’s kind of ridiculous. In this day and age, no one should have to pass a drug test for anything — work, their freedom, any reason whatsoever. But we’re all still fighting the good fight, which means if you’re going to use Hyper Brand Vapes or Hyper Brand Gummies, you’re going to have to do so safely.
LA Weekly wrote about different drug tests you might have to take. Urinalysis is “the only common federally approved method of testing.” THC Saliva Tests “can detect recent use of marijuana or THC passing your system within the last 30 days.” And a Hair Follicle Drug Test “is quite uncommon but if tested, it can catch traces of THC from 90 days prior to the test.”
What we do know is that mandatory drug testing usually subscribes to SAMHSA guidelines. They’re named after the federal organization known as the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. What they’re searching for is byproducts of THC.
See, the problem is that even though Delta-10 THC is federally legal, your drug test can’t tell the difference between what you’ve taken and cannabis. And no matter how much time you spend explaining it to your boss or social worker, or spouse, they’re probably not going to believe you because we live in a world that’s still backward.
But I Love Delta-10. What Should I Do Now?
We know how much you love Delta-10 THC. More importantly, we know that you’re not using it just for the psychotropic buzz either. The cannabinoid has tangible benefits that help you make it through the day. From the energy boost to the extra focus, Delta-10 THC has become a go-to compound for thousands of people across the country. And now, thanks to random drug tests at work and other places, you’re forced to comply with these ridiculous rules — for a legal drug!
So what should you do?
Well, first things first. If you know that you have a test coming up, you should make sure to abstain for a few days before the test to help clear out your body. Depending on how much you use, you may need some extra time, up to a week. During that time you should also drink excess water and eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Healthy snacks will help to flush out your system, making it much more likely that you will pass the test.
Second, it might be worth your time to discuss your Delta-10 THC use with your doctor. Now, this comes with the caveat that you should only do this if you have an understanding physician. Because if your doctor is the type of person who will drop a dime on you, well then, it might be best to stay quiet.
But, if you do have a decent doc, then opening up to them could be valuable. The best way to discuss Delta-10 THC and all the wonderful products we have here at CBD Mall with your doctor is to be straightforward and honest. Chances are, they’re familiar with it and what it can and cannot do, so don’t go exaggerating and telling them tall tales about the miracle it is!
But, if your doctor doesn’t know about Delta-10 THC, well, maybe you need to teach them about it. Or perhaps you need to find a new doctor! Either way, prepare yourself because Delta-10 THC does show up on a drug test. But, if you take the proper steps, you can do what you need to do to pass while still enjoying the benefits of this wonderful cannabinoid!
