ATLANTA - Cannabidiol is legal in Georgia, but Channel 2 Action News has learned that if you're taking it, you could fail a drug screening.


“It is one thing we warn our customers about, there's a possibility. It does have a small amount of THC in there, there is a possibility you could fail it," said Anthony Laborde of Discount Nutrition.


Laborde told Regan that he is a big fan of CBD oil and how it can help people with all sort of ailments.


“Anything from inflammation, to pain, seizures,” Laborde said.

Several varieties of the oil have only a trace amount of THC, the compound in marijuana that cause a high. CBD oil can't get you high, but can potentially be troublesome in a drug screening.
