There is a lot of talk about CBD oil. CBD oil is made from cannabidiol, a non-intoxicating extract of marijuana, and is believed to treat pain, anxiety, and seizures. The increased interest in CBD products brings up an important question...
Do the properties in CBD oil affect ignition interlock devices?
CBD is a compound that is in the cannabis plant. Some may associate CBD oil with marijuana since it comes from the same plant, but many CBD oil products carry a very small amount of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) or even no THC at all.
Our state-approved ignition interlocks are manufactured with fuel cell technology which is alcohol-specific. These devices measure your breath alcohol concentration or BrAC. When you are using CBD oil, the ignition interlock will not be affected because there is no alcohol in CBD oil. However, if your CBD oil has properties like menthol or ethanol because of its flavor, make sure to swish your mouth with water before taking a breath test. CBD oil with flavors like peppermint may have properties that your device may detect.
We always suggest rinsing your mouth with water before any breath test
Especially if you use products containing alcohol, such as mouthwash, be sure to swish your mouth with water before taking your ignition interlock test.
