How long does THC stay in your system?

The length of time you have been using for and the physiology of your body are key factors to consider when answering the question “How long does weed stay in your system?” and in particular THC, which is the psychoactive, mild altering ingredient found in the cannabis plant.

How long does THC stay in your system?

When up against a drug test this information becomes very important because urine testing for example only tests for the metabolites of THC. CBD/Hemp Oil consumers will have a much better chance of testing negative.

Cannabinoids are the chemical remnants and the residue that is left inside your body after consuming marijuana.

These can be detected in your blood, urine, hair, saliva and finger nails. This is why there can be four different types of drug tests administered to you.

THC can stay in your urine for anywhere between 30 and 90 days! In your blood around 2 weeks but in a hair test they take 1.5 inches during testing so up to 90 days can be detected!

THC-COOH is the main metabolite that is stored in your body’s fat cells and must be targeted when you’re trying to detox from weed. The fact that it gets stored in fat cells is part of the reason it can be detected a long time after use unfortunately.

There is a big difference in terms of the amount of toxins that are accumulated in your body between someone that consumes regularly and heavily to someone that is an occasional user.

There is no way to know exactly how long THC stays in your body because there are so many variables to consider. Some of these include:

  • How many years/months you have been consuming
  • Your BMI (Body Mass Index) and individual metabolism
  • How regularly you consume (per day/week)
  • The strain of marijuana you’re using (potency of the cannabis)
  • The quantity of cannabis consumed

So for these very reasons we don’t recommend natural remedies like drinking lots of water, fruit pectin, saunas and all the other ineffective methods of detoxing your body from weed.
