How long does marijuana stay in your urine

‘How long does marijuana stay in your urine?

I smoked every day for 5 years (a joint per day). I passed a blood and urine test in the lab 16 days after I stopped.

How long does marijuana show up in urine?

3 to 90 days, depending on a ton of factors. Generally speaking, if a person of average weight and average metabolism consumes marijuana once, that person will fail urine tests for approximately three days. If that person consumes again in those three days, that person will likely fail for nine days. If that person uses it again in those nine days, they will fail for 18 days. So on and so forth.

Five days is a safe bet for an occasional user (once a week).

For a regular user (multiple times a week), 21 days is a safe bet.

For an overweight, low-metabolism daily user, it could be 90 days until it is clean.

I’m an ectomorph; I got a six-pack and played soccer and basketball. I spent three weeks without smoking and got a positive at-home test. If you’re smoking more than three days a week and think it’ll be out of your system within three weeks of abstaining… you’re in for a surprise. The only way to pass it is if it is your first time or if you smoke once every month or every other month. For it to be a faint negative, four weeks minimum. I should also note I was a chronic smoker. I smoked every day and decided to quit if I wanted to try and pass within four weeks. A jug of water and a treadmill 5x a week. I didn’t do that this time, but the last time I did, it worked.

How long does marijuana stay in your urine?

The time this chemical stays in the body or continues to show in a drug test depends on many factors. These include:

  • how much body fat a person has
  • How often do they consume the drug
  • How much does someone smoke
  • The sensitivity of the drug test

Drugs such as alcohol may completely disappear from the body in just a few hours. In comparison, weed lingers much longer.

Drug tests can detect tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, in urine, blood, and hair for many days after use, while saliva tests can only detect THC for a few hours. This is because of the way the body metabolizes THC.

THC is a lipid-soluble chemical. This means that it binds to fat in the body, which increases the length of time it takes for someone to eliminate THC.

How long does marijuana stay in your urine?

Cannabis will last in your system for up to 90 days if you are a medical user. It depends on your weight and metabolism. The bigger it is, the longer it stays in your fat. It can be out in 2 to 3 weeks if you rarely use it like a joint. I can’t believe they still test for this. Especially Colorado. Backward hillbillies care more about alcohol.

Depending on the fatty content in your body, THC, the active ingredient to get you high, clings to the body fat in our bodies. It takes me three, sometimes four months, to pass a drug test. I’m 6″5 in height and 280lb linebacker. I’m big, so if you’re big, allow yourself some time. On average, the avid cannabis smoker will take 30-60 days. That saying is if you smoke two joints a day now, If you smoke 5 or 6 blunts like Swisher’s sweet cigarillos. And say you’re over 200lbs. It can take 30-90 days to get 100% clean to pass a drug screen. I smoke 5 or 6 blunts a day, every day…

How long does marijuana stay in your urine?

Suppose you smoke one joint and are not a regular user for 3–5 days. Suppose you smoke a blunt. It is 1–2 days longer. Suppose you smoke regularly, ten days – 2 months.

The length of time that cannabis stays in your urine can depend on several factors, including the frequency and amount of use, the individual’s metabolism, and body chemistry.

On average, it can take around 2-5 days for THC, the primary psychoactive compound found in cannabis, to clear from an occasional user’s urine. For regular users, THC can take up to 15 days or even longer to clear from the urine. However, there have been reports of chronic and heavy users having THC-COOH in their urine for up to 30 days or more.

It’s worth noting that the above estimates are averages, and the actual time THC stays in your urine can vary greatly depending on the person and the frequency of use. Factors like body weight, overall health, hydration level, body fat percentage, etc., can affect the excretion of THC in urine.

It’s also worth noting that urine tests are not able to determine if someone is currently under the influence of cannabis; they only show whether someone has consumed it in the recent past

How long does marijuana show up in urine?

Usually 30 days. Depending on how much you smoke and how much you weigh. THC is stored in fat cells. The bigger a person’s size…, the harder it is to leave the body.

THC is stored in your fat cells. When those cells burn, the disposed THC ends up in your urine. So it depends on how much you have stored in your fat cells

Approximately one to 3 months. Depending on your weight, frequency, and potency. You can always buy a test at your local drugstore. They are very inexpensive, and you can test yourself.

Depending on how often you smoke pot. A very light smoker stays in urine for about a week. Heavy smokers up to 6 weeks. You can Google this and find out more.

How long does marijuana show up in urine?

It depends on the patient’s weight, how much marijuana you ingest, and the length of time you have been using the drug.

It can take anywhere from 3 days to 6 months to clear marijuana from your system.

Does alcohol take marijuana out of urine?

No. Nothing can remove THC from your urine except time.

What helps get marijuana out of your urine?

Good exercise, running/cardio, good nutrition/diet, ing all detoxifying fruits and vegetables….and quitting smoking completely


I smoked a few hits of weed last night and got urine drug tested today at about 4 p.m. Will I pass?

It’s going to be a close call. It will depend on how strong your smoke was and how many long draws you had. Unfortunately, I think you’re fucked

The answer is “NO.” You won’t; depending on how much you smoke, weed can stay in the system for up to & including 28 days. Smoking weed the night before a drug test is simply stupid; why did you smoke it the night before, knowing you were having a drug test the next day? I wish you good luck, but in my experience, you will fail.

How long does marijuana stay in urine after you stop smoking it?

They say it takes about a month. For myself, I’m a 28 y/o female, 5’2, about 135 lbs….I was smoking daily, at least once at night. It took three weeks to get out of my system with regular exercise and lots of water intake. If you need to take a drug screen for a job or something, I would give you at least a month! Rather be safe than sorry

How long does it take for weed to get off your system?

Every person is different & remember that they are stored in fat cells…. A fit person who exercises regularly compared to an average body type without exercise could eliminate traces of THC on different scales or timelines. It would also depend on the frequency & grade, as in reg or hydro, medical, etc. Not to mention if being tested, the type of test being administered, whether it be urine, blood, hair & so on.

That being said, I’d smoked high grade, at least five days a week for months, combined with being “out of shape” or having a high BMI, and after completely stopping smoking, after seven weeks, I still failed with faint traces of THC in a urine test.

On average, they say it’s usually put off your system within four weeks; wait to quote me on that. But again, it depends on a combination of what I’ve mentioned above.

I hope this answer sheds some light on your question.

Haven’t smoked weed in exactly 14 days. I am a very light smoker, only smoking once every one or two weeks. If I have a urine test in 2 days, will I pass?

Probably not. Try a masking agent. The Detox is most effective, but you won’t have time to do it.

I don’t see having a few puffs before you go to bed as different than drinking 3 or 4 beers. The problem is, in the morning, both effects will have worn off, but the beer drinking can pass a test, and the smoker can’t.

I think that’s grossly unfair.


How long does it take to get marijuana out of your system naturally?

Generally, the graphic that Mr. Rousseau posted is a good guide. However, I tested positive for THC metabolites years ago, almost 90 days after my last smoke. At that time, I was smoking every day for years. The result of the test also depends on the cut-off level. In other words, an amount is so low that even a positive test is ruled negative. This cut-off is usually 20 or 50 ng (nanograms. 1 ng = 1/1,000,00,00 gram = 1/28th billion of an ounce).

How can THC be removed from one’s urine?

1. Dilute Your Urine

Diluting your urine is based on the principle that you can dilute your urine to such an extent that the metabolites present in your urine fall below the level of 50ng/ml, which is the cut-off point for most drug tests, to make you pass the test.

Three Days Before Test

Start three days before the test, building up your creatinine levels. You can achieve this by eating lots of red meat or taking creatine, which is available in health food stores. This step is important because the urine is checked for a metabolite of creatine to ensure that your urine is not diluted. At the same time, start ingesting drinks such as cranberry juice, which are natural diuretics, so your body is cleansed of toxins.

An Hour or Two Before Test

Take 50 to 100 mg of Vitamin B2, B12 or B-complex to add colour to your urine. Then, you should drink a glass of water every 15-20 minutes until you drink about a quart. You should also pass your urine at least once during this time.

During the Urination

While giving the sample, give the midstream sample, i.e. first urinate into the toilet and then into the collection bottle. This gives you the best chance that the metabolites are in the lowest concentration.

2. Sweat the THC out

The THC in your fat cells is also excreted through your sweat, and you can increase the excretion by using a sauna. The heat from the sauna helps dilate the blood vessels and capillaries so that the blood reaches the fat tissues and lets THC excrete through the sweat. You can schedule two sauna sessions in the evening and the next before your drug test. You should ensure you are hydrated while using a sauna to prevent overheating and dehydration.

3. Try Marijuana Detox Program

You can try marijuana detox kits that are available in the market to remove the toxins related to marijuana from your urine, hair and blood. These detox kits are made up of a combination of minerals, vitamins and herbal cleansers, or they can be a mixture of caffeine, sugar and water. To check whether your marijuana detox program is working, you can use a sample drug testing kit to check the results before and after the detox regimen. You must ensure that you drink a lot of water along with the detox formula to flush out the toxins and THC from your body.

4. Eliminate Fat

Avoid eating too much fatty foods as THC is stored in the fat cells of your body. Foods rich in fats take more time to digest and will remain in the system along with the THC. You can also do fat-burning, aerobic exercises such as swimming, biking and jogging.

What helps get marijuana out of your urine?

It is extremely difficult to get rid of. Water is used to dilute the sample, but for some tests, a diluted sample reads as a failure.

If you have little time, you can only increase your odds. Niacin is supposed to burn the THC in your system.

Water or cranberry juice is supposed to help cleanse you, too. A healthy diet and exercise also is said to help. This is because it sticks to fatty cells. So, it is possible to sweat it out.

But I just went through this myself for my job. I’m skinny and have a fast metabolism, yet It took me a full month to pass the at-home test. I was drinking a ton of water and exercising, which did nothing.

Also, the kits you can buy show up in tests somehow. If you dont have to give your sample in front of someone, your best bet is to use someone else clean urine. Store it somewhere warm (use your imagination), and that’s that.

If you have less than three weeks, good

What is the best method to remove the effect of marijuana in my urine system?

Quit smoking or eating cannabis. That is the only way. After about 45 days your system will be clean as far as your urine is concerned. A hair follicle test however is bit more precise and you’re not going to be able to get around that. Don’t waste your money on any detox drink\formula , the only thing they clean out is your wallet\purse.

Can marijuana detect positive through urine after three months for heavy users?

The active compound in marijuana is fat soluble, so it takes quite a while for the body to eliminate it, perhaps around a month after a single use.

If you are having drug testing for a job, it can thus be detected for quite sometime after use. I am not sure about three months of no use at all, whether the body will have had a chance to clear all of it for a heavy user, but possibly.

If you are in a job that checks this, be prepared for random tests from time to time as well.

Why does cannabis make you have to urinate?

I don’t want to sound mean, but I’ve never had that problem, and I’m an old weed smoker from way back. Maybe it just affects you differently ?!

How long does weed stay in your urine if you take one hit?

A drug test will test for THC and its metabolites, 11-OH-THC and 11-COOH-THC. When taking drug tests, the ability to pass or fail depends on numerous factors. What type of drug test is being administered, water intake after consumption, fat content in the consumer, type and potency of the product consumed, consumption method, and a few that can’t be properly measured, guessed or even calculated, such as personal bioavailability and enzyme breakdown efficiency, among others.

As a general rule of thumb, expect to fail drug tests for the next 60 days after consuming marijuana, whether you’ve consumed it before or not. Logically, you should have a slightly increased chance of passing if it’s your first time using cannabis, as your body was just introduced to a new chemical and had to take some time to figure out what to do with it. For some people, this can take much longer than usual, which is why some consumers’ first times don’t produce any effects; their bodies didn’t quite figure it out in time. Science doesn’t seem to support this, however. Some chronic smokers who’ve consumed every day for years on end have passed after just 30 days of quitting, while others have failed up to 80 days after their first time taking a few puffs from a joint when taking hair and urine tests. There’s not a consistent way to gauge it.

THC concentration moves to numerous places throughout the body after consuming cannabis. It can be detected in the blood, urine, faeces, brain, high-perfusion tissues, low-perfusion tissues and fat. Forty-eight hours after consuming cannabis, most THC has been moved away from the blood, brain and high-perfusion tissues but is increasing in concentration in low-perfusion tissues and fat. Around 50 – 90% of THC and other cannabinoids are excreted from your body in the first 4 or 5 days. 80% of this excretion is via faeces, with only trace amounts in the urine. Urinalysis is still used for testing simply because laboratory personnel don’t like handling faeces. Cannabinoid content in fat continues to heighten and only begins to subside slowly after roughly ten days but can remain in trace amounts for up to 90 days, notably in hair follicles.

How long does a small amount of marijuana show on urine analysis?

It can be quite a while. It depends on how much, how long ago, your health and metabolism, the kind of test and the minimum cutoff for a POS… to be safe and not test POS, you can A. wait weeks(at a minimum 3), then test to avoid a + result. Or B. take a similar test first to make sure you don’t. Don’t put yourself in the same situation in the future. I have been in this situation before. Smoking pot never did anything that helped me in life, and testing POS gave me a good job for good pay. Just saying…..

The length of time that one hit of weed stays in your system depends on several factors, such as frequency of use, dosage, and method of consumption. As a general rule of thumb, one hit detection time can be up to 8 days, frequent use can be up to 15 days, regular use can be up to 30 days, and heavy dosage can be up to 45 days

Will I test positive for THC if I haven’t smoked in over three weeks? My drug test was exactly 22 days after smoking.

If you do it every single day for years, it stays the longest. Every time you take a break from it, it goes out of your system. If you are occasional or even every other day with breaks, as soon as you stop, it’s almost gone after five days. It took me 8–10 to be negative at a 20 ng test. The home test really works. So buy them, and then you will know for sure. My test was 26 days after edibles; I was freaking out because these sites make you think 30 days minimum, and they want you to buy their detox system. 10 days of detox is ten days out of your system. It’s the time, not the detox.

I work in pre-employment background screening, and here’s the best answer I can give. It’s all dependent on how frequently and how much you smoked before stopping and your body composition/genetics.

As another poster mentioned, THC is stored in your fat tissues. Thus, if you have a slower metabolism or a higher concentration of THC in your system because of frequent usage, then there’s a higher likelihood that it will be detectable longer.

The testing fact sheets I receive from my vendors state that Marijuana can be detected anywhere from 1 to 30 days after usage through a urine test(standard method) or two weeks to 90 days in a hair sample (less common).

Again, the main factors are how much/frequently you smoked before you stopped and how quickly your body metabolizes the THC so that it is flushed out of your system.

It took me 21 days to be clean from 2 years of 24×7 consumption of marijuana. I am 5′10″, 160lbs, 11% body fat, and a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instructor and student, so I get plenty of exercise. I kept extremely hydrated and pushed Metamucil the entire time to divert the maximum amount of metabolites to my bowel (the main source of expelling marijuana metabolites). I imagine people’s average body weight and exercise would take a month or longer. It all depends on your body fat, exercise level and metabolism.

How long of a period of abstinence from marijuana is required to pass a blood/urine test?

It all depends on several factors. How often. How much. Your weight. Your metabolism. Your health. And a few others. To play it safe, you want to have at least 30 days of abstinence. AT LEAST! My husband used to smoke several times a day every day. Thirty-four days after he last smoked, he took a urine test for work and FAILED! As for me, I would smoke once or twice a day every 2–3 days. Sometimes several days in a row, sometimes once a week. But never 7days a week. I stopped, and I was clean 26 days after the last time I smoked. Different people will have different results.

How long does Xarelto stay in your urine?

This Drug’s effect is shown for 12 to 72 hours in Urine. Xarelto is a brand-name physician-endorsed drug. It’s called an anticoagulant or blood more slender. Xarelto is endorsed to treat and forestall perilous blood clusters in your body. Treat profound vein apoplexy (DVT). A DVT is a blood coagulation that structures in a vein inside your body. DVTs ordinarily structure in a vein in your leg; however, they can likewise shape in your arm.

Treat pneumonic embolism (PE). A PE is a blood coagulation that squares the bloodstream to your lungs. PEs are fostered when a DVT gets removed from a vein and goes through your circulatory system toward your lungs.

Lessen the gamble of getting another DVT or PE. Xarelto can be utilized for this reason, assuming you’re currently in danger of having blood clusters after around a half year of treatment for a past DVT or PE.

Forestall DVT and PE following hip or knee substitution medical procedure. Xarelto is utilized for this reason because these kinds of medical procedures increase your gamble of creating blood clumps.

Forestall blood clusters in individuals confessed to a clinic with an intense clinical disease who are in danger of blood clumps. Xarelto is utilized because you have a higher gamble of blood clusters if you’re on bedrest or can’t move around a lot. For this utilization, your PCP might recommend Xarelto during your medical clinic stay and after you’re released from the emergency clinic.

‘How long does marijuana stay in your urine?

Forestall blood clumps and stroke in individuals with atrial fibrillation (A-lie) are not brought about by a heart valve issue. A-lie is an unpredictable heartbeat that can disturb the bloodstream around your body. This condition builds your gamble of having blood clumps that can venture out to different pieces of your body, like your cerebrum. (Blood clumps that move to your mind can prompt a stroke.)

Forestall blood clumps can cause cardiovascular failure, stroke, or demise in coronary supply route infection (CAD) individuals. With CAD, you have restricted corridors in your heart. This condition builds your gamble of creating blood clusters in your supply routes, which can prompt coronary failure, stroke, or passing. For this reason, Xarelto is recommended for use with low-portion anti-inflammatory medicine to assist with forestalling blood clusters.

Keep specific entanglements from blood clusters in individuals with fringe conduit sickness (PAD). With PAD, you have limited veins in your legs. This condition expands your gamble of creating blood clusters in your courses. These coagulations can prompt coronary episodes, stroke, absence of bloodstream in appendages, and conceivable requirement for removal (expulsion of an appendage). For this reason, Xarelto is endorsed for use with low-portion headache medicine to assist with forestalling blood clumps.

Haven’t smoked weed in exactly 14 days. I am a very light smoker, only smoking once every one or two weeks. If I have a urine test in 2 days, will I pass?

Probably not. Try a masking agent. The Detox is most effective, but you won’t have time to do it.

I don’t see having a few puffs before you go to bed as different than drinking 3 or 4 beers. The problem is, in the morning, both effects will have worn off, but the beer drinking can pass a test and the smoker can’t.

I think that’s grossly unfair.

Eat as fatty as possible and be as lazy as possible for the next two days for your best chance. Running or exercising this close to the test will burn your fat cells and release the THC into your bladder.

You aim to create a new layer of fat cells that will burn in 2 days instead of any possible THC-laden fat cells you currently have.

When you take the test, DO NOT use the beginning or end of your stream to fill the cup. The middle is the most diluted of your urine. And for most tests, the THC cutoff is VERY high. Don’t make your pee white. Leave some yellow. But drink a lot of water and try and pee a few times a day, at least three before the drug test, to further dilute your urine. (As I said, ensure you don’t drink too much water to ensure it’s still yellow.)

Stay away from ANY diuretics the next few days, such as coffee, soda, and alcohol, as they all will start to flush your body.

This isn’t a definite guide for you, but I smoked weed throughout government service with monthly drug tests and never got caught.

Best of luck, friend. Please search everything I said to ensure you know how everything works, and you’ll do just fine. 🙂 Especially with such little use!

I haven’t smoked marijuana in 25 days. But I usually smoke a blunt a day. Can I pass a drug test?

IF I SMOKE WEED HEAVILY, can I pass a drug test in 18 days?

If the test requires a urine sample, I have a method to pass that has worked for me every time.

You will need:

  • 32oz bottle of Gatorade (I always use cool blue, but the flavour probably doesn’t matter)
  • One pouch of Sure-Jell Certo fruit pectin (a box with two pouches is available at most grocery stores for $3)
  • Two bottles of water

Steps to be taken roughly 2 hours before your test:

  1. Drink enough of your Gatorade to allow space for a pouch of Certo to be squeezed into the bottle.
  2. Shake the bottle and drink all of it as quickly as possible.
  3. After the Gatorade is gone, drink two bottles of water quickly.

Drinking everything usually takes me 30-40 minutes because it’s such an uncomfortable amount of fluids to ingest so fast. Make sure you pee at least twice before peeing for the urine sample. It’s pretty easy to pee after consuming so much liquid, so don’t even worry about not being able to go. You’ll have to, trust me.

This method has worked for me countless times for lab urine tests and basic four-panel tests. I’ve never tested positive for marijuana using this trick, and on some occasions, I had smoked the day of a test. It also works for amphetamines but does NOT work for cocaine or opiates.

Why does THC remain in your urine far longer than in your blood?

Because THC dissolves in fat.

It stays in the fatty tissues and only leaks out slowly. It does so via the blood, but the urine concentrates anything your body doesn’t want: in an hour, your kidneys will have gone through your entire blood volume about twice, filtering out THC (among other things) so that it’s easily 100 times as concentrated as in the blood. If you’re a regular, heavy weed smoker, it can be detected for up to six months after you quit.

And even if you’re extremely skinny, you still have one organ that’s full of fat: your brain.

‘S’right. If you’re a regular, heavy smoker of weed, you stay slightly stoned for up to six months after you quit. (If you do it once in a blue moon at parties, not really.)

Your kidneys filter it out of your blood, but it takes longer to flush it out of your kidneys. Ever tried cleaning a dirty filter? It takes a lot of work; that’s what urine is; it’s water with the gunk from the filter. You have two kidneys, and both have to be flushed out. Most people don’t drink enough water, so it can take over 30 days to flush it out.

THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis. Fat-soluble, which means it binds to fatty tissues in the body. The difference in how long THC remains detectable in urine compared to blood is mainly due to how it is metabolized and stored in the body.

‘How long does marijuana stay in your urine?

When THC is consumed, it is rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream. From there, it is distributed to various tissues and organs, including the brain, where it produces its psychoactive effects. Afterwards, THC is metabolized in the liver and converted into metabolites like THC-COOH (11-nor-9-carboxy-THC), which are also fat-soluble.

As these fat-soluble metabolites are stored in fatty tissues, they are gradually released back into the bloodstream and eliminated from the body through urine and faeces. This process takes time because the metabolites are released slowly from the fatty tissues.

Blood tests mainly detect active THC, while urine tests typically look for the metabolite THC-COOH. The concentration of active THC in the blood decreases relatively quickly after use as it is rapidly metabolized and distributed to other tissues. Consequently, blood tests have a shorter detection window for THC, typically a few hours to a couple of days after consumption, depending on the frequency and amount of use.

On the other hand, urine tests have a longer detection window because THC-COOH accumulates in the fatty tissues and is released slowly over time. The detection window for THC in urine can range from a few days for infrequent users to several weeks or months for heavy, chronic users.

In summary, THC remains detectable in urine longer than in blood due to its fat-soluble nature, how it is metabolized and stored in the body, and the differences in what is being measured (active THC in blood versus THC metabolites in urine).
