Cannabidiol (CBD) is a chemical compound present in the cannabis plant, which can be sued medicinally as a remedy for a variety of ailments and pain management. The varying nature of CBD products on the market may present some obstacles for employers. Will CBD trigger a positive test result and inadvertently violate a valid workplace drug policy? This project will discuss the current classification, various legislation, and approved uses of cannabis derived products such as CBD. The need for various workplace drug policies will also be reviewed. The purpose of this project is to generate awareness to employers on the evolving CBD marketplace and the multiple layers of complexity of this topic in order to decide if current drug policies need to be amended or revised.
