Are there any herbal medicines that can cause a false positive for benzos on a hair follicle drug test?

Possible: Herbals that mimic benzo related compounds can give false elevated levels. Which can be be interpreted incorrectly. But then again, i would come clean with your clinician or employer on what you are taking.
