Drugs Of Abuse - Urine: Cannabinoids

Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that are found in the Cannabis sativa plant, more commonly known as marijuana. The most prominent cannabinoids include tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is responsible for the psychoactive effects of marijuana, and cannabidiol (CBD), which is non-psychoactive. The Drugs Of Abuse - Urine: Cannabinoids test is designed to detect the presence of these compounds in the urine. This is primarily used in drug screenings for employment, legal purposes, or medical evaluations.

  • Test Name Drugs Of Abuse - Urine: Cannabinoids
  • Sample Type Urine
  • Preparations Required No specific preparation is needed, but it is advisable to follow the standard procedure for urine collection and avoid excessive fluid intake prior to the test.

While some cannabinoids, like CBD, are now being used for therapeutic purposes, others, like THC, are considered illicit substances in many jurisdictions due to their psychoactive properties. Additionally, the use of marijuana can have varying effects on individuals, ranging from relaxation and pain relief to impaired memory, coordination, and judgement.
