Pantoprazole can cause a false positive ONLY by immonassay testing, not by chromatography which it the type of test you are describing here. CBD products are not properly controlled or overseen by the government. Legal CBD products by government regulation are limited to 0.3% THC.  Since manufacturers are not carefully monitored, many, if not most products contain more than that.  It is for that reason that using CBD can test positive for THC.
