Here are a few links that might provide you with some information.
I am finding forum posts for the most part and they all seem to follow the pattern shown here
From what I am finding the standard workplace test will not show these substances. I am also finding reports that state military tests (and the like) are being adapted to show these compounds.
General consensus would indicate you should be safe for the time being. The following is some copy pasta from another site
Herbal incense by itself is just a variety of herbs including canavalia rosea, clematis vitalba, nelumbo nucifera and a few other botanical herbs that when smoked by themselves would produce no effect. Some manufacturers like, K2, Mojo, Fusion, Serenity Now, Vibe, Dragon Spice, and Mystery give their product an extra kick by adding synthetic chemical compounds like JWH-018, which acts as a cannabinoid agonist to receptors in the human brain. It produces effects in humans very similar to those of THC itself, but with a longer duration of action. Addiction is very rare, as one test subject used JWH-018 for 8 months straight and withdrawal symptoms were fairly mild.
Although not federally regulated yet, senators and legislation in various states have tried to pass laws to criminalize the chemical compound or any herb sprayed with it. So far there are only a few states that have made it illegal to possess or traffic K2 incense.
Many employers require drug testing for new and existing employees. To date, herbal incense does not show up on most drug tests, but a testing method will no doubt become available if herbal incense is declared illegal nationwide. By then it may be too late for many young adults who test positive from frequent long-term use. An Associated Press article states that K2 costs between $20 and $50 for three grams – similar to the street price of marijuana – but with the key advantages of it is that it is legal, undetectable in drug tests, and you can purchase herbal incense online.
Our legal Beagle here in the office tells me that JWH-018 will be detectable in the next generation of tests.
Remember that I an neither a chemist or doctor so the information here is presented with no personal knowledge to its accuracy.
