Crew Health Advice: CBD
UK P&I Members have recently brought our attention to issues surrounding cannabidiol (CBD) usage by a crew member which resulted in a failed drugs test. The CBD oil had been purchased and consumed by a seafarer as an over-the-counter supplement. The seafarer had not disclosed usage. The crew member later tested positive on a random drugs screen. This has raised questions over CBD product usage onboard.
As a result of this case, the UK P&I Club are issuing a cautionary note to Members and crew regarding the use of CBD products.
