Ask the Diva: Will Hemp Milk Make You Fail  a Drug Test

Q. I have been reading a lot about the benefits of hemp and would like to add it into my diet.  I am concerned that consuming these foods might make me test positive on a drug test. Do you know if consuming hemp milk or seeds could show on a drug test? If so, how much would I have to consume?

A. The type of hemp used for food production is a different strain of cannabis than the type used for medical or recreational purposes. Hemp milk and other foods contain no THC, the active ingredient in marijuana. According to my sources, consumption of hemp foods will never cause a failed drug test.
