Cbd security clearance reddit

There are clearance holders who came back with positive urinalysis results because of CBD use. There was one on the federal employee sub last week.

Cbd is legal federally <0.3% THC which most if not all are.

State Dept recently updated their drug affidavit to include a reference to CBD. It says something "I realize CBD, while federally legal, may appear on drug tests as THC usage which will disqualify me from holding a clearance".

This, because there is no regulation – clearance holders are not authorized to use CBD products.

FSO here. One of my employees recently self-reported an accidental ingestion of a CBD product. The reason I share it is this: it was in his alcoholic beverage he got at a licensed restaurant in Virginia. Think Applebee's or TGIFriday's. He ordered it, drank it, and then found out it had "CBD Ginger bitters" as an ingredient. As we all know, until the federal government changes the rules, we are not allowed to partake in marijuana or any marijuana-derivative product. CBD is showing up in food, drinks, shampoos, etc. Please keep aware and spread the warning.

However, there is some conflicting legality that can come into play. Specifically, if purified CBD comes from hemp plants, it is federally legal, but if it comes from a marijuana plant, it would be considered illegal. That’s because marijuana plants themselves are prohibited by the DEA. Also, the FDA has prohibited the sale of CBD in any unapproved health products, dietary supplements or food, which means that technically CBD is illegal in everything except for the drug Epidiolex, which is an FDA approved treatment for epilepsy. As the federal provisions, as written, a store could sell as much CBD as it wants, as long it doesn’t make any health claims about its products,, put it in food, nor add it to dietary supplements.

You are correct. It seems it’s just workplace common practice to say it’s federally illegal and I get why. People are getting positive THC tests because of the difficulty in dosing. I would almost guarantee that the TGI Friday drink of the month would be federally legal under the farm bill of 2018

The issue is that there is no one (no agency) who regulates or checks the amount of THC in these products.

I’m 99.99999% sure about this.

I'd LOVE to see a full legalization passed, simply so I could Invest. but that isn't going to happen until potentially late in the second term of the next POTUS to get a second term, whomever that turns out to be.

I don’t know about the rest of you but I just have no desire to use at all

This is a first step. However until policies are enacted, don’t go out and use CBD.

THIS is simply election year posturing by one element playing to their base, same as happens almost every year, alongside this website playing to their base with what is basically clickbait titling.

Needs to get passed in senate too; but it’s still a great small step to full legalization (the day this subreddit is stoned to the bone)

The House of Reps is NOT "Congress".

If Congress Approved a Measure, that means it has passed BOTH parts of that body and it's next step would be the President's desk for signature or Veto.

Good Gods I hate when websites/"journalists" do that.
