How to Pass a THC Test

By Green Gone LLC

What makes detoxing from marijuana so hard?

There are 3 major issues with most detox products attempting to remove cannabis from your system:

  1. High lipophilicity of metabolites – Simply put, THC is fat soluble and the metabolites tend to get stuck in fat cells as a result.
  2. High protein binding of metabolites in the blood stream to albumin – your body can only eliminate free unattached THC through the kidney and bowel.
  3. “Bottleneck” of metabolite formation in the liver. In order for your body to clear THC your liver has to turn it into a variety of more water soluble metabolites.

Depending on the level of usage and the person in question (age, gender, size etc.) the half-life or time the drug stays in your body varies greatly. A one-time user typically taking 3-5 days to test negative, infrequent use possibly taking more like a week to 10 days, and daily consumption can take several weeks to well over a month. There are also case reports of well over a month to 2 months in large (over 200 pound) and heavy users (daily or multiple times daily).

What can you do?

Dilution – has its limits. If you over dilute your urine the site won’t accept the sample, as it won’t meet urine creatinine and specific gravity requirements for validity.

Fiber – this helps to clear more drug through the bowel and helps bind some.

Still often times this will not be enough if it could take potentially several weeks to test clean and you are fearful of a random, on probation, or about to take a pre-employment screen and can’t wait that long. You need a detox product that actually works and makes sense. No overly complex instructions, no gimmicks.

The perfect detox would:

  1. Provide reliable results
  2. Not have time sensitive directions
  3. Be permanent
  4. Not have complex instructions
  5. Hit THC from multiple angles to get it out

Green Gone is a new product on the market that does just this! If you want a permanent cleanse in a pinch you can’t beat it. You can learn more about it at greengonedetox.com

What makes it so good?

Green Gone is a capsule containing 5 key ingredients that will get the job done. A basic salt helps to increase urinary pH to help dissolve more THC into urine to dump it. A fiber source helps bind THC in the gut to be excreted in feces. A natural non-steroidal anti-inflammatory helps boot THC out of your blood. A liver inducer helps boost liver metabolism.

How Long Does Marijuana Stay in the System (with Infograph)

Below is an infograph detailing how long marijuana stays in your system.

The data used to create this infographic is gathered from research on drug testing methods and the information presented by drug screen manufacturers. Some resources include Redwood Toxicology, Cannabis Drug Testing, California NORML. The information presented is only a guide or estimate since drug testing has many variables that can influence a positive or negative outcome.

How Long Does Marijuana Stay in your System? is a frequent question posed by cannabis consumers. While there is no definitive answer, below are some guidelines. The only way to really know if you are positive is to test yourself. You can test yourself with a cheap drug test and know if you are positive.

How long does THC stay in your system?

The most common drug tests used are urine, saliva and hair. Each test has a different detection time which is important to know. The urine drug test is the most commonly used because it is cheap and has a longer detection time than a saliva test. There are several very important factors that can influence how long THC will be present in your urine:

  • Weight
  • Body Fat
  • Amount Used
  • Frequency of Use

Since these factors will vary greatly for each individual, there are no definitive guidelines to tell you how long you can test positive for THC.

On a Urine Drug Test, THC will appear as a positive within 2-5 hours of use. How long it will still show on a urine drug test is estimated based on frequency of use, but does not take into account the weight and body fat of the marijuana user:

  • One Time User may show positive for 1-6 days
  • Moderate User may show positive for 7-13 days
  • Frequent User may show positive for 15 or more days
  • Heavy User may show positive for 30 or more days
  • Some Heavy Pot Smokers have reported being positive 45-90 days after quitting

On a Saliva Drug Test, THC will test positive within one hour of use, but may only show positive for about 12 hours after last use.

On a Hair Drug Test, THC will show up about 7 days after use and most hair drug tests will test for a 90 day period. However, THC does not always bind to the hair follicle which makes it not always considered an accurate testing method for marijuana use.

The most reliable way to know if you are testing positive for marijuana use is to drug test yourself.

Marijuana Drug Test: How to Pass

How long does marijuana stay in your system, particularly your urine? And how do you pass a marijuana drug test? Here’s a look at what the science says.

marijuana drug testWhen conducting a marijuana drug test, companies often use a urine test. There are several factors that determine how long weed stays in the urine.

Here are a few:

  • THC percentage of the cannabis being consumed
  • The BMI of the person consuming the marijuana
  • The rate of consumption (how often they smoke)
  • How fast the consumer’s metabolism works

 

With this in mind; here’s what the research shows in regards to how long marijuana stays in your urine:

  • If you consume marijuana once, it should be out of your system in 5 to 7 days.
  • Cannabis will stay in the system for 10 – 20 days for those who consume it a couple or a few times a week.
  • For heavy consumers (5 or more times a week) it can stay in the system for 30 to 65 days.

 

THC-COOH:

THC-COOH is the main secondary metabolite of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which is formed in the body after cannabis is consumed. Most drug tests don’t test for THC; they test for THC-COOH.

The reason this is an issue is because THC-COOH can stay in the body for longer than THC.

Saliva and Hair Tests:

Two other popular methods are saliva tests and hair tests. Saliva tests are the least invasive; if you’re a daily smoker, studies have shown that in most instances it should be completely out of the system after 72 hours. If you smoked cannabis only once, it will likely be out of your system in 24-48 hours.

air tests, on the other hand, are far more invasive. Cannabis can be found in the hair up to a year after last consumption. Many companies have stopped using hair drug tests, however. Part of this is due to research released last year which found that hair tests can have false-positives for marijuana “because of transfer through cannabis consumers, via their hands, their sebum/sweat, or cannabis smoke.”

 

How do I Pass a Marijuana Drug Test?

The safest and most effective way to pass a urine drug test for marijuana is to abstain from consuming it; if you’re a heavy smoker, this may mean abstaining for two months or more.

Another option is to do a Google search for “marijuana detox” or “drug testing detox”. Here you will find a plethora of options for cleaning your system and clearing your urine; we highly recommend reading reviews first, however, as some work much better than others.

Another option is to dilute the marijuana in your urine by drinking massive amounts of liquid. This may work to shorten the amount of time the THC is in your system. However, it’s not magic and won’t allow you to pass a test if you’ve smoked recently.

If taking a marijuana saliva test, abstaining for a few days should be enough for even heavy users. If you can only abstain for a day or two prior to the test; suck on the sourest candy you can find for a couple hours beforehand.

If taking a marijuana hair test, there really isn’t much you can do, unfortunately.

 

What about CBD Consumption?

Standard drug testing tests for THC metabolites, not CBD. This means that consuming CBD will not make you fail a drug test; that is so long as it has had all of its THC removed; or if it’s hemp derived (meaning it will already have virtually no THC).

What is THC-COOH?

Many people don’t realize that standard drug tests don’t test for THC; they test for THC-COOH. But what is THC-COOH?

thc-coohTHC-COOH is the main secondary metabolite of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which is formed in the body after cannabis is consumed. Most drug tests don’t test for THC; they test for THC-COOH.

 

The Science:

THC-COOH, also called 11-COOH-THC. is formed in the body by oxidation of the active metabolite 11-Hydroxy-THC (also known as 11-OH-THC) by liver enzymes. It is then metabolized further, forming a water-soluble congener which can be more easily excreted by the body.

Unlike THC, 11-COOH-THC is not psychoactive. It does have a much longer half-life, however.

Why Does this Matter?

THC-COOH has a long half-life that can stay in the body for many days. For heavy cannabis consumers, it can stay in the body for weeks or even months (up to 77 days according to one study). This means a drug test can be failed even if the person hasn’t consumed cannabis for weeks.

More selective tests may distinguish between 11-OH-THC and 11-COOH-THC. If 11-OH-THC is detected it’s more of an indicator that cannabis was consumed recently.

 

Medical Properties:

Some studies have indicated that THC-COOH plays a role in the pain-relieving and antiinflammatory effects of cannabis. It has also been shown to moderate the effects of THC itself which may help explain the difference in subjective effects seen between occasional and regular users of cannabis.[13][14]
