Description:

Vaping Comprehensive (THC, Nicotine, K2 Spice, CBD) Test

The Comprehensive Vaping Drug Panel looks for several substances that are commonly used in vaping devices or e-cigarettes in a urine sample.  The use of e-cigarettes and other vaping products such as Juul has become increasingly popular since they were introduced in the early 2000s.   While vaping is primarily marketed for use with nicotine products, there has been a rise in the use of other drugs, especially marijuana.

This package includes:

  • Marijuana (THC): After alcohol, marijuana is the most commonly used psychotropic drug in the United States.  The primary psychoactive chemical in marijuana is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).  While recent years have seen the legalization of medical or recreational marijuana sale and use in some parts of the country, it remains illegal under federal law.
  • Nicotine: While not illegal, nicotine is still highly addictive and has been shown to contribute to a number of long-term health complications such as cancer, emphysema, loss of circulation, increased risk of blood clots, arthritis, and diabetes. 
  • Synthetic Cannabinoids Synthetic Cannabinoids, also known as K2, Spice, Fake Pot, or Incense are herbal mixtures containing chemical additives designed to mimic the effects of Marijuana.  There have been cases of unknowing buyers purchasing synthetic cannabinoids rather than marijuana and suffering more severe side effects.
  • CBD/THC Ratio: Cannabidiol (CBD)is one of the main components of cannabis.  CBD products are often marketed as being able to offer the therapeutic benefits of marijuana without the psychoactive effects of THC.  The CBD/THC ratio test can help to distinguish whether a person is using THC free CBD products as opposed to Marijuana or other THC products. 

Urine drug testing can be ordered for a variety of reasons.  Parents concerned about the health of their children can order testing to help ensure they are not smoking or vaping.  These tests can also verify what type of substances someone is using when they vape.  Companies can test their employees as part of a workplace health initiative or as part of pre-employment requirements.  Testing can also be ordered by anyone for work, school, legal, or personal reasons.

Testing is typically ordered when someone is suspected of using nicotine and/or marihuana either through the use of a vaping device or other methods.  These tests can also verify what type of substances someone is using when they vape.  Positive results will provide a numerical value for the level detected.  Negative results will simply say "negative."  Urine testing is not intended to detect second-hand exposure.
