First off, we hope that you’ve never used marijuana before. If you have, you’re probably wondering how long it stays in your system and, even more importantly, how you can get it out as quickly as possible.
You may feel great after smoking weed temporarily, but the thing is, the effects of using marijuana are long-term, and they can last quite a while. The drug can be present in your body even for months on end, especially if you’re smoking weed on a regular basis.
In this article, we’re going to observe how long it takes for the drug to be removed from different parts of your body and whether there is something you can do to get it out of your system faster. Let’s get started.
How long until THC is removed from your body?
THC stands for “Tetrahydrocannabinol.” Basically, it’s the most important ingredient found in marijuana, and it’s also the ingredient that is responsible for that “high” feeling that you get by smoking weed in the first place.
The answer to the question above is not that simple. THC might be present in your body for only a couple of days. But, it can also be present for as long as six months. It depends on the person as well as the type of marijuana. In general, THC tends to embed itself into the fat tissue of your body. The more overweight you are, the higher the chances of the weed circulating through your system for a long time.
On average, however, THC should leave your body in four days. In the worst case scenario, it may stick around for up to 18 days in total. These are the numbers that you should focus on.
How long until weed leaves the urine?
When a company is testing someone’s body for the presence of marijuana, they will test the body fluids. Other than saliva and blood tests, they will also want to examine your urine. Urine tests are, in fact, the most reliable drug tests. Why? Because they have the longest detection period out of the three mentioned drug tests. That’s why it’s crucial to know how long you can expect the drug to be present in your urine.
It really depends on how often you consume marijuana. On average, weed will disappear from your urine in 8-77 days. If you only smoked marijuana once, you can expect your urine to be drug-free in about a week. However, if you’re a frequent smoker, it will take more than two months for your urine to be normal again.
What should I do to pass the urine test?
Two months is a lot of time, and many people have to do something to pass their urine test right now. There are two ways you can get away with it. You can either use some detox drinks or detox pills that you can buy at one of your local shops. Alternatively, you can also use a fruit pectin. Both of these methods have their own side effects, but more importantly, both of them will allow you to pass the urine test successfully.
How long will marijuana be present in your body?
Yet again, how long marijuana will linger in your system depends on several different factors. In this case, it depends on the amount of your body fat, your metabolism, and the drug itself. For most people, the marijuana will perish in about a month at worst. However, in extreme cases, you can expect marijuana to be present for up to 90 days in total.How long will THC be present in your saliva?
The good news is that, in general, THC doesn’t hang around in your saliva for long. Even if you’re smoking weed regularly, it shouldn’t take more than 72 hours for THC to go out. If you only smoked weed once, you can expect your saliva to be normal in a day.
Is weed present in my hair as well?
Yes, you can find weed even in your hair. However, there is one thing that we have to point out. Unless you’re a long-term smoker, you have nothing to worry about. The drug tests are much more likely to “pick up on” the frequent and/or regular smokers than the casual ones. That said, the weed should completely disappear from your hair within a week if you’ve only smoked once. If you smoke weed on a regular basis, it can take up to 90 days to be completely drug-free.
How long until weed leaves the blood?
In general, it may take up to 24 hours for the weed to get out of your blood. It doesn’t take a lot for your blood to be normal again, and technically, you should only worry if you’re smoking marijuana regularly.
