Beating a drug test: I am surprised still here on health tap when someone expects physicians to help them beat a drug screening. We really are physicians and really want patients to be healthy and that means to be clean. But, the simple and right answer, is nope. Absolutely not.

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.
