How long will THC stay in my hair if I smoked once in July on the 18th. It was my first time ever.

How long will THC stay in my hair if I smoked once in July on the 18th. It was my first time ever.

Curious question: Hair grows at a rate of about 1/2 inch a month, and thc that is deposited in the hair will stay in the zone that represents use while it was forming.

Endoscopy: I would wait for July's endoscopic results before making any changes in your management. If there's no sign of Barrett's, your gastroenterologist may agree with avoiding more long-term ppi therapy in view of recent reports of adverse potential side effects. On the other hand long term ppi treatment does protect against malignant transformation. ...Read more
