How Long Does Marijuana Stay In Your system
THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) can stay in a person's body for as long as 3 to 90 days
after smoking or being ingested orally.
There are numerous determining factors for how long drug toxins stay in a persons body which vary from person to
person, such as the analytical method used, your health, your body weight, metabolism, fluid intake, the type of
drug toxin, and the degree of exposure to the drug toxin.
Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, one of nearly 400 chemicals in a cannabis plant, accounts for most of
marijuana's psychoactive, or mind-altering, effects. The strength of the drug is determined by the amount of THC it
contains which varies from plant to plant. Marijuana stays in your system for different amounts of time depending
on how often you smoke it, how much you smoke, and the makeup of the individual (weight/height/etc.).

If you smoke it occasionally it will remain in your system for up to 10 days.
If you smoke marijuana on a regular basis it will stay in your system for as long as 45 days, and if you smoke
marijuana at a constant pace, it can stay in the body for 90 days. Marijuana is fat soluble. It stores in the fat
cells of the body, the brain, the liver, the kidneys, in other words the major organs.
Delta-9-THC enters the bloodstream rapidly after smoking (in minutes) or more slowly when ingested orally (20
minutes to 1.5 hours). It is rapidly metabolized into inert molecules known as metabolites. These chemicals also
have the word Tetrahydrocannabinol in them and are called THC, which can be quite confusing.
Delta-9-THC is detectable in the blood for a few hours,
but none of this active chemical is found in the urine or stored in the fatty tissues such as the liver and
What is frequently described as THC's lingering in the body fluids and organs are metabolites of Delta-9-THC,
the inert substances that the body disposes of in the urine and excrement, in much the same way as it disposes with
Vitamin A. It is these that are detected in the body organs and urine, long after the effects of Delta-9-THC have
worn off. These metabolites can linger more than 90 days in some cases. For occasional users, an average of 13 days
was recorded. Some people had metabolites detectable for just three days; others found the substances still in the
urine after up to 30 days
The best way to figure this for your own body is to set up a control for your own use. Smoke your average bowl or
joint or marijuana at one sitting (if you smoke more than 2, go right ahead but make sure you smoke it all less
than 1 hour) , and wait 3 days (no smoking any at all) then take a drug test bought from a drug store,
if it turned out positive, you need to wait 3 more days and
repeat the process.
Many people would think this would be a waste of time, but I have proven it for myself and saved my job many
times (cannabis stays in my system for 15 days) and saved me money not buying detoxification drinks. It is better
to know for sure, than to guess. That way you can control your use in a better way and still have a good time!!
For other solutions you might want to check out some products that cleanse your body of THC.
There are different type of drug tests you can have, from a urine test to a hair test. Fortunately there are some
companies selling products that get rid of drug traces in your body. They sell fake urine that you can put on your
body. They have shampoo to clear out the THC of your hair.
I haven't tried this myself, I heard stories from people that it works great. A good thing for you to test it
out yourself is to order both a marijuana test kit and a THC removal product whether for hair testing or urine
testing. Then to the drug test before and after you use the product.
