You Can Fail A Drug Test By Just Being Exposed To Smoke

If I just Smoked Up: How Long Before I Can Get A Drug Test Done?

Drug tests measure cannabis and its by-products, or metabolites. These metabolites remain in your system long after the weed’s effects have worn off. The number of days you’ll have to stay clean before getting a drug test done depends on how often you use weed/hash in a day. Cannabis metabolites are fat-soluble, which means they bind to fat molecules in your body. As a result, it can take some time for them to leave your system.

For Urine Testing

If you’re a heavy user, as in you’ve smoked up or consumed weed/hash multiple times in a day, you’ll have to stay clean for an entire month for your urine to have no trace of it at all. But if you’re a chronic user. like once every day, you can clean your system in 15 days. For Occasional to moderate users, it can take anywhere in between 3 to 7 days for the weed to leave your system.

For Blood Testing

Cannabis is typically detectable in the blood for 1 to 2 days, but again, if you’re a chronic user, the number can go upto 25 days.

Marijuana can enter the saliva through exposure to smoke!!

For Saliva Testing

Marijuana can enter the saliva through smoking and exposure to smoke. However, its metabolites are only present in saliva when weed has been smoked or ingested. In the case of occasional users, it clears out within 1 -3 days, but as a chronic user, your mouth will take at least 29-30 days to be drug-free.

For Hair Testing

After smoking up, the weed/hash reaches your hair follicles through tiny blood vessels. So, if a tiny hair segment is taken from near the scalp, it’ll basically become a daily log of all the drug consumption you’ve had in the past 3 months. But hair testing for drugs is very rare. If it hadn’t been, you’d be pretty screwed. You need more than 90 days for the hair to stop having traceable amounts of cannabis.
