Test probably neg: My understanding is that THC has a long elimination half-life relative to other recreational drugs, & may be detectable in urine drug tests from 3-10 days after use. After 4 days most will be below the limit. Heavy users can produce positive results for several months. I doubt any of the things you've tried will help; if you drink too much water, the sample may be too dilute for testing. ...Read more
