Weed can stay in your system for a few days to a few months — here's how to get it out faster

Weed can stay in your system for a few days to a few months — here's how to get it out faster

 

  • Weed can be detected in urine between one to 30 days after your last use. 
  • Meanwhile, a saliva or blood test can only detect weed for a few days. 
  • The only way to get weed out of your system is to stop using marijuana products.
  • Visit Insider's Health Reference library for more advice.

 

 

If you use weed and have been asked to take a drug test, you're likely wondering how long it will take for your results to be clean. It turns out there's no absolute answer to how long it takes for weed to leave your system. That's because detection time depends on various factors, including the type of test, frequency of consumption, and last use of cannabis. 

Here's what to expect based on the test you take and tips to flush weed out of your system faster. 

 

How long does weed stay in your system? 

When determining how long weed will stay in your system, healthcare professionals say it all comes down to frequency and the amount you use. 

"How much you consume and how often will influence how long cannabis stays in your system, but it can depend on an individual's metabolism as well," says April Hatch, RN, co-founder of Cannabis Care Team, a nurse-founded Cannabis education group. 

When you smoke, vape, or otherwise ingest weed, THC is broken down into several by-products that are stored in various body parts including body fat, the brain, and the heart. 

 

 

Over time, the byproducts stored in the body are released back into the bloodstream where they're then excreted in urine; but chronic, daily smokers can have a THC build-up that accumulates faster than it can be eliminated. 

 

Weed usage can generally be divided into three categories

  • Infrequent users (less than twice a week) 
  • Regular users (several times per week) 
  • Chronic users (daily) 

Marijuana drug tests measure the presence of either THC or THC by-products in your bodily fluids or hair, but how long after consumption a test can detect them depends on the specific type of test:

 

1. Urine test 

Urine testing is the most common drug testing method. THC byproducts can be detected in urine for the following amounts of time

  • Infrequent users: One to three days
  • Regular users: Seven to 21 days
  • Chronic users: 30 days or longer. 
 

2. Blood test 

THC content in blood quickly peaks within the first few minutes of smoking weed and then declines within an hour. But if you consume your weed in edible form, you can expect your blood THC content to peak around 3 hours after consumption.

"Blood tests usually detect marijuana for relatively short periods of 1 to 2 days [after last use]," Sternlicht says. 

However, studies show some frequent marijuana users' blood will test positive even after seven days of abstinence.

 

 

3. Saliva test 

Saliva testing is common in workplaces and uses a swab placed between the lower cheek and gum. 

Saliva tests can detect marijuana for up to 24 hours after last consumption in infrequent cannabis users, and up to 30 hours in regular and chronic users. 

 

4. Hair 

Hair follicle testing has the longest detection window, or the period weed can be detected after last use. 

Hair follicle tests can detect weed for up to 90 days after last consumption, for most users.

How to get weed out of your system 

Experts agree the only way to get weed out of your system is to stop using it. And, if you're a chronic smoker, you're likely in for a waiting game. 

"There are products and lots of anecdotal stories on what will work, but the only way to truly clean out your system is to stop consuming," Hatch says. 

 

There are plenty of products on the market claiming they can speed up the weed "detox" process, but these claims are unproven and the products can cause dangerous side effects

Drinking water, eating healthy, or "sweating it out" will not remove weed from your system. 

 

Insider's takeaway 

Patience is the name of the game when it comes to clearing weed out of your system, and regular marijuana users taking urine tests will likely test positive for weeks longer than less frequent users. If you use weed and have to pass a drug test, it's best to stop using right away and give yourself plenty of time to let your body detox.

I'm just happy to learn that I do something so frequently, I'm classified as 'Chronic'.  And I'm pretty sure people have passed swab tests in well under 24 hours.

Future generations will look back at the ridiculous way drugs were treated in this period of our history in the same way we view the witch hunts of old now.

If you're still failing a piss test after 50days I would hazard a guess your still ingesting in some way, most likely passively. 

 

Does someone in your household still consume? Or do you hang around with a group of friends who do? 

 

I can piss clean in under 3 weeks of total abstinence. 4 weeks is adequate for most people :yinyang:

@Capt Haze There are several factors which could be contributing towards your test results.  Your metabolism plays a big part as it's stored in the body fat.  This doesn't necessarily mean that overweight people are specifically more likely to take longer to clear out their systems because even skinny people can have high levels of fat in the body.

Other factors, such as temperatures at the point of testing, contaminants and other medicines in your system can affect the outcome too.

Perhaps try a different test to compare because typically you should be completely clear after 4 weeks where urine testing is concerned.

Been absolutely clean for the 50 days, nobody else smokes in the house, no second hand smoke, no edibles what so ever. 

i too assumed 35 -40 days would have had me test neg, but to no avail.

Maybe Im just an enigma. I cycle regularly, eat fresh and have been drinking an average of 3 liters water a day. 

Shit loads of Yoga. I reckon it must be the RSO consumed over a long time. Smoked for almost 10yrs, now nothing. 

Thought someone might also have had the same issue as I.

Any medications that might be causing a false positive? 

 

I forget which ones off the top of my head but there's more than a few iirc.. 

 

Worth a Google :yinyang:
