There is a big disconnect here which could cause you to fail the drug test for testing positive for marijuana when you never smoked it before in your life. You could be perfectly following the law but fail the drug test anyway.

Both are cannabis plants. Often the lab paperwork when finding THC in the test, will report the THC as coming from Marijuana not knowing it could have come from Hemp CBD that only has trace amounts of THC.
Hemp based CBD oil is not something an employer should be afraid of. If CBD oil is removing a person’s disability to work, then employers should embrace the use of hemp CBD oil as long as it is proven to have less than.3% of the compound, THC. The key point is to get the employer, the lab and the employee all aware of the state and federal laws around hemp CBD oil legality before the drug test is done.
Can you fail a drug test due to CBD? Yes It starts with the employer having intimate knowledge of drug laws and CBD oil. If they intend to test their employees. It must be standard procedure to ask employees if they are using hemp CBD oil in order to document it for each employee scheduled for the drug test.

It is recommended for an individual taking hemp CBD oil to do one of the following:
If you know your employer is going to enforce drug testing the employees, it is best you stop taking the CBD oil as the best precaution to ensure you keep your job.
You could also buy hemp CBD oil that is clearly marked on the bottle and proof of testing that it has % THC.
If you know your employer is going insist you take a drug test, tell them before the drug test that you are taking hemp CBD oil. Get it out on the table ASAP.
People believe that taking hemp CBD oil with THC at or below the legal limit of .3%, it should never show up on a drug test. Well this article proves that wrong. Do everything possible to ensure you get no surprises on the drug test.
Know Your % THC in the Products You Use
If you plan to take or are taking hemp CBD oil products, do yourself a favor. Absolutely make sure you have seen documented lab results for the product you are taking. Here is why. The CBD market is uncontrolled; same as the vitamin and supplement market.
All CBD products are not made equal. It has been proven by the FDA in early 2016, when they tested 24 products from eight companies. Eight products of thirteen that had CBD levels clearly marked on their packaging, these products totally failed to have at least those amounts of CBD in their products. The CBD levels were lower than advertised.
Therefore as stated, do not buy any CBD products from companies unless they show documented testing results from an independent third party test lab. You usually can find this on the company website as a reference or on a separate page.
How Long is CBD Detectable in Urine?

When drug tests are being done, the lab is looking for THC the psychoactive cannabinoid that is in high concentrations in marijuana plants, but only in trace amounts in Hemp CBD; less than .3% which is the legal limit. The amount of THC taken and over what period of time, makes a huge difference for Marijuana based CBD.
As for hemp CBD, being that it only has a trace of THC in it, you would have to take a lot of it over a short period of time just to have it show up on a drug test, but there are other variables to the drug testing also, as will be explained. Read on.
