Not really: THC attaches to fat cells in your body & leaks out over time. There are no flush agents that work. Light users may become negative in a week of abstinence while heavy users may remain positive for a month. If you get on a CPS watch list they will be able to find it in baby at birth. Stay clean & be honest with your docs and things may go well.
