Thanks for reaching out to us. We understand your concern about vaping.
According to Army Regulation 600-85 [PDF 1.63MB], Soldiers are prohibited from using:
- Cannabidiol (CBD)
- Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)
- Synthetic cannabinoids (Spice, K2, fake weed)
The Army National Guard randomly tests Soldiers using urinalysis, known as drug testing, to screen for 26 drug types including marijuana, THC, and synthetic cannabinoids. Synthetic cannabinoids have the same mind-altering impact on the brain as THC and can be even more powerful than marijuana or THC. THC can also stay in the body for up to 11 weeks.
Soldiers who repeatedly misuse drugs—including vaping products with CBD, THC, and synthetic cannabinoids—may be considered for separation. Your Commander may have you contact your State Substance Abuse Team or refer you for substance abuse evaluation and/or treatment.
If you still have concerns, we recommend talking with your Medical Readiness NCO. They can connect you with your State Substance Abuse Team about any questions or concerns regarding vaping.
