Smoked what?: Why are you being tested? Military or security clearance? Probation? And also what did you smoke? I am assuming it is not tobacco and that it is a controlled substance. Knowing nothing of the details surrounding what you used and why you are being tested, I'm not able to provide you with a meaningful answer. I'm sorry about that! There is a simple way to avoid this. Don't use illegal drugs. ...Read more

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. Remove the hair to below the that level and it would not be found on hair analysis. However, most do not assess hair to detect it, they use urine.This can clear in a week or so if use was minimal. ...Read more

When you use many drugs/chemicals, the blood supply to the hair follicle deposits that chemical into the hair being made at that time, and that tiny "band" of positive THC (or other drug) will then grow out with the hair. If you never cut your hair, it will always be there, but with average hair growth and average rate of cutting, it will be there months ...Read more
