Ganja Cannabinoids panel

several months


See http://www.canorml.org/healthfacts/drugtestguide/drugtestdetection.html Quoting from it:"One study found that 85% of daily users tested positive for marijuana, versus 52% of occasional smokers (1-5 times per week)...It is doubtful whether hair tests are sensitive to one-time use of marijuana." Nothing takes it out. They usually test the hair closest to scalp which can show use in past 3 mos.

I have read that one time use might not even show up. Most answers say that if use is regular, then it will stay for about 2-3 months. One person said that his parents, both of whom are police, told him that it could stay for a year. Hair grows at 0.5 inches per month, so they usually cut off three months of hair growth (1.5 inches) for the sample for detection. Why not just not use the stuff?

Chronic use may show positive results for months. It depends also on the length/amount of hair tested and the nature of the test being used. Check this link for more details. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2274831/

Hair Drug testing


Drugs you have consumed will be testable in hair samples. They do not leave or diminish. Only with haircuts does the previous exposures go away on testing. Hair testing is not like urine or blood testing.

No


THC stays in all the hair on your body. If someone shaves his head or arms, the THC will still be in the hair follicle.
