Weed and its by-products, known as metabolites, stay in your system for as long as your frequency and amount of usage. When you smoke or ingest weed or any other form of drug (marijuana, cannabis, etc.) daily or multiple times in a single day, it will naturally take a longer time for the effects to wear off from your body than when you smoke or ingest in once a week or so.
Regular and high-intensity exercises, drinking a lot of water, eating dietary fibers in plenty, frequently urinating a day before the drug test and leading a very healthy lifestyle are some ways you can follow to get the impact of weed off from your system. These ways may help in giving you a favorable result when you undergo a drug test. However, there is more to these solutions than what meets the eye.
If you are a chronic user of weed, none of these solutions will work for you. You have to wait for at least 90 days before you take a drug test, because that’s the maximum time that a drug stays in your body. Abstinence from any kind of drug for at least 3 months before you are due for a drug test is the only legal way for you to pass your test.
Since there are different kinds of drug tests available in the market, are you wondering if the results will vary in each of them? Will they show different results for how long weed remains in your system? Yes, they will! This is because the THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), the most potent element in weed, enters your bloodstream immediately when you consume it.
However, it takes a while for the THC or the metabolites to reach your hair follicles. Also, a saliva test will show the presence of metabolites only if you have smoked or ingested weed and not when you are exposed to it. So here are the different kinds of drug tests that are conducted and a brief overview of how long it takes for weed to leave your system according to each of these tests.
Considered to be the most frequently conducted drug tests across the globe, a urine test will show varying levels of weed based on the amount and frequency of consumption. The more weed you smoke, the longer time it takes to leave your body. Please refer below for details:
The metabolites of cannabis and weed are fat-soluble; therefore, it takes a long time to leave your system, especially if you have been overusing it. A blood test is the first proof to show traces of drug in your system, because any drug is detected in your blood within seconds of usage.
Smoking weed, exposure to weed and ingestion of weed are the common ways in which weed can enter a person’s saliva. However, when a saliva test is taken, the presence of metabolites will be shown in it only if a person has smoked or ingested weed.
Hair Follicle Test
This is not performed very commonly; however, sometimes, authorities may ask for a hair follicle test to be conducted for thorough checking of weed in a person’s system.
Though different drug tests show different time-frames, one point is common to all these tests. They show an extended presence of weed in your system, if you are a heavy or chronic smoker.
