If I have a blood test tomorrow morning and I smoked marijuana tonight would it show up? They're testing hemoglobin, mono, tsh, lyme, cmp, sed rate

Probably not: Most drug screening tests are urinalysis. Although blood tests can be done they are much more expensive. It sounds like your labs have been ordered to work up specific symptoms, to better help you physician make a clinical diagnosis. I am very skeptical that a thc level would be included in this type of workup. Hopefully you live in a pot legal state.....Otherwise, be careful! ...Read more

If your son is using, a consult with a counselor would be a good idea to help you and him to see what is the best way forward and other academic problems. ...Read more

Using it in oral preparations or via vaporizer will maximize its anti-aging benefits while minimizing toxins from burning it. See http://tinyurl.com/nnn2nv9
