Does marijuana stay in the root of the hair follicle for 6 months, or does it get pushed out by the new hair growing in?

Does marijuana stay in the root of the hair follicle for 6 months, or does it get pushed out by the new hair growing in?

Long time: Thc is stored in fat cells which serve as a reservoir and release it slowly into the bloodstream and from there into hair follicles. For a long time user, the "reservoir" can be quite full and so may feed follicles at 6 mo and longer. The new hair growing out takes some follicle thc with it as new thc is being fed in. ...Read more

I smoked marijuana seldom in small doses am 5'10 150 pds my hair grows slow and the last usage was 12/16/13 can I be clean for a hair follicle by 3/12?

Hopefully...: The reason you have a good chance of testing clean is that you use it seldom in small doses and have now abstained for a few months. Based on this the odds are good you will test clean but there are no guarantees. I feel such testing in an intrusive invasion of privacy. See http://www.Canorml. Org/healthfacts/testing. Tips. Html good luck! ...Read more

I took an of marijuana two weeks ago and prior to that I took a few hits about a month ago. I'm taking a hair follicle test next week will I pass?

Hair follicle test: Lab information indicates a standard hair follicle screen covers a period of approximately 90 days, but is susceptible to time variation depending on the growth rate of your hair. So, I guess you are within the range of detection. ...Read more

I smoke marijuana one time about 35 days ago I have a hair follicle test in two day should I pass?

I smoke marijuana one time about 35 days ago I have a hair follicle test in two day should I pass?

Probably: The best information I can find to answer this is from the website of NORML (who should know), which states that, while a hair follicle test can be positive for months in regular users, it is "doubtful" that it would be positive after a single use. See http://www.canorml.org/healthfacts/drugtestguide/drugtestdetection.html ...Read more

If my boyfriend smokes marijuana around me on a daily basis for a year and even while I sleep will I fail a hair follicle test in a couple days?

Probably you're ok: The reports I've heard suggest that you will pass. There is a small worry that if you were in a very non-ventilated space w/ it for a long time — some may show, but read this: http://www.homehealthtesting.com/blog/2010/06/does-second-hand-marijuana-smoke-show-up-on-a-drug-test/

If I smoked marijuana once and had a hair follicle test 109 days out will I pass? I would estimate that I smoked about 1/2 a joint

If I smoked marijuana once and had a hair follicle test 109 days out will I pass? I would estimate that I smoked about 1/2 a joint

Unlikely: Thc is stored in fat cells which serve as a reservoir and release it slowly into the bloodstream and from there into hair follicles. For a long time user, the "reservoir" can be quite full and so may feed follicles at 6 mo and longer. The new hair growing out takes some follicle thc with it as new thc is being fed in. From 1 to 2 joint very little will be stored. ...Read more

Smoked marijuana in jun2013 for 5 days and twice in Oct2013. I have to take a drug test in a week. Can it be detected in urine or hair follicle test?

Doubtful, but: If the amounts were huge in Oct, the hair test at a very fine cut-off might nab you. Not likely. Here's a link. http://marijuana.com/drug-test/detection-time/
Stay clean since it matters. Good luck. Perhaps someday this will be a thing of the past. One can hope. Till then, one must be smart. ...Read more

I don't ever smoke marijuana. But I took one hit from a joint 2 weeks ago. I have to take a hair follicle drug test in 4 days. Will I pass it?

Hard to say: Hair testing is very powerful (1pg/mg) and reflects drug use over the past 90 days (depending on the length of hair available). A shaved head or razor cut might remove evidence of activity from 2 weeks ago. One hit may be too little to worry about, but I can't say I know. If it's very important — you might want to tell them the truth. This sounds like an unintended outcome if you're being honest. ...Read more

How long does marijuana stay in a hair folicle test?

How long does marijuana stay in a hair folicle test?

Forever: Sort of... The drug goes into the hair and stays in the hair that grew during that duration. So if the mj was used in june and the hair grew 1/2 inch in june, it would be in that 1/2 inch, and not in the 1/2 inch that grew in july. So when you test the hair you know that hair close to the follicle represents recent use. ...Read more

How long does marijuana stay in your system once smoked? How do you determine how long weed will stay in your system when doing a drug test or a hair folicle test I am 5'4, weighing 335 lbs hoping that helps.

How long does marijuana stay in your system once smoked? How do you determine how long weed will stay in your system when doing a drug test or a hair folicle test I am 5'4, weighing 335 lbs hoping that helps.

Depends: On how much and how often you smoke or ingest it. If it's a one-time use in modest amounts, it will only remain 2-4 days if the test used has the usual sensitivities. However, in people who smoke regularly, and in particular more heavily, thc is soluble in body fat stores and can remain there for many weeks, and sometimes even months. Hair follicle tests will show any pot use in that hair. ...Read more

I'm not wondering how long THC stays in hair,but I'm curious as why it stays in the hair follicle longer than blood or urine?

Hair stays: Thc stays in the hair longer than in the blood and urine. This is because the blood is constantly being filtered (cleaned) by your kidneys and the urine is regularly eliminated from your body and replaced. Your hair, however, does not get filtered or replaced, so the thc remains. ...Read more

How long does alcohol stay in hair? (Hair follicle test) And does frequency of use have an effect? I go out for a few drinks one day a week.

How long does alcohol stay in hair? (Hair follicle test) And does frequency of use have an effect? I go out for a few drinks one day a week.

The hair test: Can give a "look back" up to 3 months! HOWEVER, it is only of use for agencies/employers with ZERO tolerance for alcohol use. IT'S TOO SENSITIVE!!!!!
If you drink AT ALL and a potential EMPLOYER is requiring a PRE-PLACEMENT hair test FORGET ABOUT THAT JOB untillyou have had NO alcohol for 90 days!!!!!

MY opinion Only
Hope it helps!
