Is there any type of urine test for cannabis that can find marijuana one year back?

Is there any type of urine test for cannabis that can find marijuana one year back?

30 days: If you haven't smoked, or consumed extracted THC in a period of a month, your urinalysis will come back clean. If you are caught in a position where you have to do a urinalysis in less then 30 days, there are suppliments,such as "test clean" that can mask THC in your urine. Last option would be to get a Rx. for Marinol from your physican, which can be prescribed off label for pain management. ...Read more

Does cannabis interact with cumadin/warfarin? I know that alcohol heightens irn, does marijuana lower it?

Does cannabis interact with cumadin/warfarin? I know that alcohol heightens irn, does marijuana lower it?

Don't know...: We don't know, as far as i can tell it has not been studied. I do know that smoking of any type, increases the risk of vascular events of the type we are generally trying to prevent with anti-coagulation with drugs like coumadin/warfarin. But as for directly affecting inr, we don't really know. Coumadin/warfarin is a dangerous drug with a narrow therapeutic window. I would advise caution. ...Read more

NO!!!!!!: Tobacco is plenty bad, and I am not recommending it, but marijuana, however "safe" it may be in adults when used occasionally socially, as is alcohol in most cases, is not safe in teens. It impairs learning, decreases motivation for other activities, and can increase the chances of underlying psychiatric issues becoming more severe. Tobacco has more "tars, " and is worse for lungs than marijuana. ...Read more

Hi, friend is getting a blood test soon (fbe, tsh, b12/folate and iron studies) him being a regular cannabis consumer, will the test detect marijuana?

Unlikely: Thc metabolites are stored in body fats and excreted through urine. So it is unlikely that thc would be detected in blood test. But cannabis use would be detected in urine test. If he should be testers for employment etc., best he stop or reduce cannabis. Best regards, dr. Catherine shaw. ...Read more

Not a good idea: Your acne meds can have brain and mood side effects as can pot. Drug interactions are not available to look up. Pot has 600-700 chemicals in it. Like alcohol, it is best not to mix them because there are too many unknown variables. Certainly there are other natural self-soothing activities you can rely on that are safe. Best wishes. ...Read more

Why is marihuana considered a lethal drug?

Politics: Marijuana is only considered a lethal drug by the U.S. Government. There is no scientific evidence of that (provided your only drug is marijuana). It is difficult to die from marijuana. However, alcohol which is a legal, "non-lethal" drug directly causes scores of deaths every year. ...Read more

After menisscus surgery, can I smoke medical marihuana?

After menisscus surgery, can I smoke medical marihuana?

Not if it's illegal: I would not ever mix it with standard pain meds. In addition, there are over 600 chemicals in smoked marijuana. We of course did not know all the interactions between pain medications and pot so it would not be cool to combine them. I assume they already gave you crutches. Don't add a third one.:). ...Read more
