The short answer is yes, Delta 8 THC can show up on a drug test. When you consume Delta 8 products, you will be detected in a drug test. This means that Delta 8 products can cause you to fail a drug test, even if they are legal in your state. Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC are both forms of THC, but they differ in their chemical structure.
Delta 8 has a double bond, which is believed to be the cause of its intoxicating effects. This double bond also means that Delta 8 can give a false positive for Delta 9 THC, leading to a failed drug test. If you're worried about failing a drug test due to Delta 8, the best thing to do is to abstain from taking any product containing this cannabinoid for at least 30 days. However, if you have taken any product with Delta 8, it will be present in your body and will appear in a drug test.
Delta 8 was first discovered in 1965, but due to its origin, it has often been overlooked. Thanks to its flexible regulation, Delta 8 is not subject to the same rigorous testing protocols as CBD and other legal hemp products. This means that Delta 8 products are unlikely to contain exactly what they say they do, and may contain Delta 9 THC and other unregulated chemicals.
