Cannabis is the most widely used “illegal” drug in the world. No matter the country, it’s laws or potential penalties.
The fact is that there are more stoners in the world than there are Pepsi consumers, and the number keeps growing.
Unfortunately, even though Cannabis is one of the oldest known medicinal herbs.
Due to suppression by “evil” global laws, modern medicine hasn’t been able to fully explore the wonders of Ganja.
But they have been able to do research that can help them enforce these laws.
What am I talking about?
Drug testing, the science of screwing good, non-violent and honest people.
Putting them in jail, denying welfare and even the ability to support your self (work).
Just because you light up an herb that probably existed longer than the human.
But since we live under this system, we also learn how to adapt to it.
If you smoke weed, and have ever wondered how THC leaves the body. Its probably because of a pending drug test.
Now the studies that have been used to suppress us, can help us!
Need the whole story?
We have went over those topics in detail before. What we will do is go over how it works its way out of your system.
This is important information for anyone thats about to be screened for marijuana use.
THCs Journey Through The Human Body
THC, just like any thing else you eat, smoke, drink, rub on your skin, etc., is used for energy.
Your body takes it in, uses it and finally sends it out as waste.
Thats why drug test don’t really check for “drugs’ exactly.
They check for its waste metabolite or toxin, thats how “drug detox” programs, drinks, etc, got their name.
THC-COOH The Marijuana Metabolite
Once you use pot, THC then metabolized by the liver, the liver converts THC to THC-COOH. It’s then stored until used, then expelled from your body as waste.
Marijuana once used, takes the same exit route as any bodily waste product.
THC leaves the body as:
It’s important to also keep in mind that some traces of THC will remain in your body longer. As THC containing fat cells are burn off for energy.
Trace amount of THC can be permanently trapped in:
This also gives drug labs the ability to test hair and nails for cannabis use. Unfortunately, this also makes it possible to test hair, nails and bones for weed.
What even worse, unlike pee tests that can be cheated by using a THC cleaning drink. Hair and nail drug screenings are very difficult to cheat.
How long till THC has left your system?
Even though everyones metabolism is different, It depends on the method used to detect it.
Let’s go over them in detail with a time line starting at the last time you used.
The main purpose of perspiration is to regulate body temperature. When your body is over heating, you start to sweat, helping you stay cool and healthy.
We also know that sweat is not only composed of water and salt. It also contains other trace minerals along with waste and toxins.
Thanks to that info, sweat drug tests where created. The bad new is it takes longer for THC to leave in sweat as it does through urine.
Even after one time use, marijuana can be detected in sweat for weeks
Because urine tests are so common, THC’s exit through the urinary tract is probably the most well know.
Once release from fat, THC enters the blood stream and gets filtered out by the kidneys.
But because burning off fat takes such a long time. Expelling marijuana through urine can take days, weeks and even months.
If you have only smoke weed once, expect 3-5 days detox time
If you smoke regularly, it can take 3 months or more get rid of THC
A mix of waste fluids and solids, feces is an effective way to expel bodily toxins.
It takes hours for food to make its journey through the digestive system. As it does, fluids are absorbed into the solid ad disposed of.
THC is detectable in feces for about the same time as it is in urine.
Diets low in fiber along with poor water consumption can greatly extend detox times.
Not enough information?
Yes, it’s possible to use a detox method or drink to speed up the process.
But if you are not under time constraints, time, exercise and a health diet works best.
Hope this information answers how does THC leave the body in detail.
