The TestPledge for Bodycare

As discussed on the THC Answers page, no significant transdermal absorption of THC would occur even in a worst-case scenario of highly compromised skin, full-body application of hemp oil and 10 ppm THC in the hemp oil (the maximum limit allowed by Canadian law). THC absorption from body care products is extremely inefficient and is non-significant as an additive factor alongside hemp food consumption even from unrealistically extensive use of these bodycare products. Thus, TestPledge requires that hemp bodycare companies signing the TestPledge observe the current Canadian 10 ppm limit for THC.

An article in the April 2004 MRO Update (a publication for medical review officers who conduct drug tests) confirms that using hemp tanning or bodycare products cannot cause a false positive for marijuana on a drug test. To download a PDF copy of the article, click here.

Some recent stories in the media have implied that using hemp tanning lotions might cause a person to test positive for marijuana. This is simply not true. Use of hemp seed oil based tanning or bodycare products can not cause a false positive and is not a legitimate reason for testing positive for marijuana. Vote Hemp also confirmed that tanning lotions containing hemp seed oil are not banned by the Air Force.
