How long does marijuana stay in your blood?

Up to weeks: The stuff also enters fat cells and may stay detectable for a long time especially if you're burning fat. One of the ironies of mandatory drug testing is that drug-users know marijuana stays detectable longer than the far more dangerous illegal drugs, so on friday night people decide to use intoxicants that are far more likely to do harm. Why not be "high on life" for now? ...Read more

How long does marijuana stay in the blood stream?

One Month: For a heavy user up to one month, rarely longer. Thc really doesn't stay in the blood stream, rather-it is stored in fat and is considered fat soluble. In fact, that is why it can take so long to get out of the body. The thc has to get out of the fat cells.

Doctors usually do not do drug testing for a routine physical, and if they were, they would get urine either instead of or in addition to blood. It is never the wrong time to quit smoking, especially of tobacco, and you need to consider whether the marijuana is a problem as well. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more

If someone smoked marijuana 2 weeks ago would they be able to pass a blood test?

If someone smoked marijuana 2 weeks ago would they be able to pass a blood test?

Probably, however...: As my colleague dr. Pappas mentions, marijuana is almost always tested in urine rather than blood, so someone would almost certainly pass a blood test but is more likely to face a urine test. If one does not smoke it regularly and only used a bit 2 weeks ago they would probably pass a urine test, but if they are a regular smoker who only stopped 2 weeks ago they might not pass it. ...Read more

When you donate blood- can they identify marijuana in it?

When you donate blood- can they identify marijuana in it?

We won't look: Even if you believe our marijuana laws are wise, nobody cares whether there is a little bit of the stuff in blood for transfusion. It is hard enough to get people to donate blood at all without their having to be busted for weed as a result. Thanks for your being willing to donate blood, and don't worry about our "war on drugs" in the privacy of a blood donation. ...Read more
