How Long Do Edibles Stay In Your System

rainbow belt edibleThere are two ways to interpret this question. You might be asking how soon can you pass a drug test after consuming marijuana. Or you could be asking how long will the effects last. Most people are trying to see how long it will take before they can pass a test, but I will answer both questions just to cover it all.

How Long? (Short Answer)

Edibles can take anywhere from one week to one month to flush out of your system. Within 5 days, 80-90% of the THC will be excreted from your body through fecal matter and urine (1).

How long it takes for the last 10% to leave your body depends on several factors. That’s the short, safe answer. One month is just a rounded estimate. Infrequent users can be clear in a few days.

Lots Of Factors Come Into Play

Now it’s time for the long answer. There is no cut and dry time frame here. You can pass a test as little as 4 days after use if you are not a frequent or heavy user. You also can fail a test three months after your last chill session if you are a heavy and frequent user.

Basically, it depends on a variety of factors. Some of the factors that play a role in how fast THC leaves your body are the quantity consumed, your diet, how often you medicate, how well you hydrate, exercise, and your body’s fat content.

THC is stored in your body’s fat cells. The larger your fat cells, the more time it takes to work it’s way out. If you hydrate properly, it will speed up the process.

Common Mistakes to Avoid

Not getting enough fluids in your body causes the THC to get stuck in your fat cells. It can take a long time to get out of your body if you are under hydrated. It’s one of the most common mistakes people make. Some people think they can just down a gallon of cranberry juice the night before the test.

Hydrating helps flush your system

Cranberry juice definitely can help, but if you only drink it the night before the test, you’re probably going to be disappointed. It would be better to start drinking loads of cranberry juice at least a week before your test. That will allow your body ample time to detoxify.

As always, be careful when consuming a lot of liquid. Drinking too much, too fast can lead to bad things. Making a habit of hydrating everyday is one of the best defenses you can have for a surprise drug test, just don’t overdue it.

Another mistake people make is to not urinate right when they wake up. Never use your first urine for your drug test. The first one will have the highest concentration of metabolites in it. It’s much safer to wake up a little early, urinate and drink some water to work up some more urine. Also, when testing it’s better to urinate a little in the toilet first, then capture the rest. The beginning of your urine has the most metabolites.

Hopefully you avoid all of these mistakes and pass your test with flying colors. It’s always good to study before a test so I’m glad you’re reading this article. In case you think you’re in deep poo, the next section might be able to save your tail feather.

When Absolutely Necessary, Use A Detox Product

1-Hour Detox Drink

If you don’t have time to detox or you can’t give up the bud, then you need a detox product. Some people aren’t able to do this because without MMJ, they’d be in excruciating pain. I understand, because I depend on CBD to manage my pain and I used to depend on MMJ when I lived in a place where I had easy access. Believe me, I know the struggle. If you’re in a jam, there are products that can give you a get out of jail free pass.

If you need to go this route, this drink is a safe bet and comes with a 500% money back guarantee. Giving you 5x your money back won’t fix the consequences of a failed test, but a company couldn’t stay in business with offers like that if there products didn’t work.

The High From Edibles Can Carry Over To The Next Day

The effects from edibles can last anywhere from 4-12 hours. Trust me, you can wake up and still be high the next morning.

The larger your dose, the longer the effects will last, with 12 hours being the max. The cannabis is metabolized by your liver. Your liver converts it into a form of THC that will produce a more intense high than when you smoke. This process take a lot longer to run it’s course. As the weed works its way through your blood stream, you will enjoy a very nice and strong high.

When you smoke, the THC enters your nervous system via the lungs. The effects usually last from 1 to 2 hours. This process finishes way faster and produces a lighter high. Edibles are the opposite. It’s harder to achieve a light high with consumable marijuana. If your goal is to get a nice little high, I recommend smoking or vaping.

Take It Slow Or Become Comatose, Really

It’s best to start with a small amount and wait for the effects to set it. The standard dose is 10 mg. That is a good place to start. Wait at least an hour before having more. If you have a slow metabolism, wait a little longer. It can take up to two hours to kick in if your metabolism is stupid slow. It is really important that you don’t overdue it. I’ve done it before, it’s not all that great (if you live at your mom’s house that is).

Consuming too much can turn what should be an enjoyable time into a disaster. Different people react to heavy doses differently, but for me, I become very lethargic. I will just melt away into the couch or bed. I literally will not move. Not because I can’t move, but because I don’t want to lol. I essentially become a bump on a log. It’s not my idea of a good night, but some people may like that. I get high too much (every night) to just sit there.

I like to be able to plow through some food, then sink into the couch or bed. Honestly, sometimes I do go for that “I can’t move feeling.” It’s pretty nice once you get the hang of it, but I can’t bash edibles like that every night.

The THC Controversy

For some reason, THC is controversial little acronym. Millions of people associate THC with dropping out of school, cheating drug tests, stealing from loved ones for money, laziness, and fried eggs for brains (thanks to commercials in the 90s!).

My personal opinion is that these are all bullshit, except for maybe the lazy one. I may be too “lazy” to get up make my way to my bed when I’m high, from their view point, but actually I’m just relaxing on the couch lol. It’s something us Americans should try more often.

But the misconception is that people who use cannabis are lazy all of the time. Regardless of my opinion, millions upon millions of Americans have made it clear that they strongly dislike people who get high. They don’t want us to be around them, their kids, and consider us to be a bad influence.

But the good news is, you don’t have to choose between relieving your pain or being able to have a relationship with your lesser-informed relatives. Thanks to a plethora of research, you can have your cake and eat it too.

Want Relief But Don’t Wan’t To Risk Failing a Drug Test?

If you’ve struggled to find adequate relief, if you hate putting chemicals in your body, if you don’t trust the government with your health, if you don’t like having to worry about failing drug tests, if you can’t be high at work or around your relatives; then you’re going to love this relief remedy.

By taking your health into your own hands, you’re living out the true American ideals of life, LIBERTY, and the pursuit of happiness. Freedom isn’t being forced to gobble prescription after prescription, leading to a host of side effects and a lifetime dependency on percocet, vicodin, and oxycotin. Liberty is being free from oppressive restrictions, such as telling us what we can and can’t use to medicate.

Unfortunately, THC edibles are hard to come by in most states and could cause you to loose your job. That’s why we recommend CBD edibles for anyone who doesn’t want the risk associated with THC due to the oppressive restrictions.

CBD comes from the Cannabis (hemp) plant. The hemp plant is a type of cannabis that only has trace amounts of THC. Not enough to get you high or fail a drug test. It has the benefits of marijuana but without the high. If you’re looking to get high, CBD is not for you. But if you’re suffering and want natural relief, then you should look into hemp CBD.

Here are just a few of the reported benefits of CBD:

  1. Pain and inflammation relief (
      Arthritis, Cancer, Fibromyalgia, Heart Disease, Huntington’s Disease, IBS, Migraine, Multiple Sclerosis, Nausea, Neuropathic Pain, Osteoporosis, Parkinson’s Disease, Prion, & Spinal Cord Injury
  2. Anxiety Relief (pubmed)
  3. Helps the body fight cancer (pmc)
  4. Helps relieve depression (nlm)
  5. PTSD (ncbi)

I can personally attest to some of the benefits of CBD, as I have been using it for over a year now to manage my chronic pain. While using it for pain, I noticed myself getting better sleep and being in a better mood. I don’t use it for sleep or to enhance my mood, but I’m not mad about the benefits.

    That’s cutting it really close. It could go either way. You could test your own urine with an at home test kit to see if you pass. If you don’t pass, it might be a good idea to get a detox drink

Hi! I ate a 5mg CBD gummy 6 days ago. I took a drug test today for work and on the list of drugs they test for it said “cannabinoid”. Am I going to fail from the gummy? Also, the bag containing the gummy said no thc

    Gary - February 21, 2018 Reply

    You shouldn’t fail it. By cannabinoid, I’m guessing their talking about the metabolites from THC.Cannabidiol is a cannabinoid, but cannabinoid is just a broad term for the roughly 68 compounds that are only found in the cannabis plant. I highly doubt they’re testing for every singly cannabinoid. But of course I don’t know for sure.

I’ve never tried edibles before, until recently. My adult children have been suggesting it for years, that I give it a try. But I have always tried prescription medications and they just don’t work for me anymore. So when I tried a Mango edible, it work so well. The only problem is I can’t afford to buy it on a regular basis. All states should allow our medical plans, to cover it for people like me, who only want it to releave there chronic pain.

I have never tries cbd gummies but suffer from herniated discs in my neck and I’m tired of hydrocodone. My problem is I’m on probation for dwi and have to submit to random ua…how long would a gummy stay in my system? I’m pretty sure they test for EVERYTHING.

    Gary - October 3, 2017 Reply

    Hey Theresa, I would read the lab results of the CBD oil. Some have almost zero THC, in which case you would be fine unless the test is a zero tolerance test which is ultra rare. Another thing you can look into is Kratom, if it’s legal in your state. Lots of people use it to ween off opiates. I used kratom for several years myself to deal with my fractured sternum and the resulting pains it caused for years.

    Gary - September 20, 2017 Reply

    A one-off dose of THC shouldn’t saturate your fat cells all too much. My guess would be around two weeks as long as your lifestyle is reasonably healthy.

I ate one weed brownie tonight ; I haven’t smoked in about 3 months ; I didn’t get high off of it from what I feel . how long u think this one brownie would take to get out of my system ?

    Gary - September 20, 2017 Reply

    If it wasn’t even enough to get you high, I would think it’ll fly through your system. Assuming the dose was really small, my aggressive guess would be 1-1.5 weeks. Please don’t stake an important test on my guesstimate tho.

Hello, I am probably freaking out, but I took an extremely high dose of edible…3x the normal amount usually for a dose. However, my drug test is going to be in 10 months. It was a one time thing, I workout 4x a week. 142 pounds. 5’6″ female. Should I be worried? I’m just a little concerned that it will stay in my fat cells. Thanks for the help!

    Gary - September 20, 2017 Reply

    You have absolutely nothing to worry about if it’s a urine test. Even a high dose of THC should be able to clear your system in 30 days. You will be fine, but you can try an at home test a month before your real test if you want to ease your mind.

On July 23 (40 days ago) I ate a 10mg gummy. This is the first time since last year I’ve had anything with weed in it and last year I took one hit. I have an upcoming hair follicle test next week and I am freaking out worried that this gummy will show up on the test. I weigh 116, I am 5’6 and a female. My hair is long and black. What are my chances? What should I do to get it out of my hair fast?

    Gary - August 31, 2017 Reply

    There are so many variables with a hair tests it’s hard to say. Generally, they take 1.5″ from the root. The average growth rate for hair is 0.5″/month, meaning that 1.5″ is 3 months worth of hair. I’ve never taken a hair test personally so I can’t attest to the quality of any of the products. But trying some kind of product seems like your only option. I’ve only tried detox products from this company, but haven’t used their hair products so I can’t vouch for them.

    Wooo that’s one helluva question! I always get nervous with these prediction. You’re right on the line. Two weeks is generally enough time to pass 10mg, as long as you live a semi-healthy lifestyle. Good luck to ya!

    Gary - August 9, 2017 Reply

    You’re right around the point where you could be clear of the THC. A lot of factors come into play so you never know. If you could find a local store with a drug test kit, testing yourself would give you a lot of insight as to your status. A sensitive test would be 20ng/mL. If you can pass that, you should be good unless they do a zero tolerance test.
    If you want to know more about your specific drug test, see if you can find some info online about which company they use for drug testing and so forth.
    If you fail your take home test, you might have time to overnight a detox drink.
    Good luck to you!

So about 4 months ago, on May 12th (its currently August 3rd), I ate about half of the big THC gummy bears (the whole thing had 100 mg of it, so I probably had 50 mg in me). I’m now starting to apply for jobs and I know I’m going to be drug tested, but I’m scared that I might fail if its still in my system after all this time. What should I do?

    Gary - August 4, 2017 Reply

    Buy an at home drug test off amazon. Get the 20ng/mL because that’s the most sensitive cut off. Test yourself so you can rest easy. 4 months is a really long time. If it’s a urine test, you’ll pass with flying colors. I mean like an A+. But if it’s a hair test you still could fail if they get the perfect piece of hair. Most companies do urine tests.

So, I “Do the Weed” about once or twice a year.

on the 30th I ate home-made eddibles with about .45 Grams worth of weed in the oil.

I was high AF and took a nap for a couple hours because I went a little crazy lol

So, I have 2 (1 more as of 10 minutes ago) and each has about .22 Grams worth of weed used for them.

So, if I eat the other cupcake tomorrow (4th)…

would I be considered a “casual” or “regular” weed “smoker”


about 1 gram in less than a week, first time in about 6 months.
What should I expect for it to dissapate from my system?

    Anon - August 3, 2017 Reply

    Should probably note that it was regulated weed from a dispensary. I don’t buy the weed and don’t do it on my own, so I don’t know what is “good weed” and what isn’t, or how to gauge what it takes to get high.

    Sorry I’m just a casual pleb

    Gary - August 4, 2017 Reply

    For this week you are considered regular, but it should make it’s way out of your system pretty fast as long as you’re not adding to it. My guess it you’ll be clear in under 3 weeks. Maybe 2.5 weeks from your last use, assuming you drink a good amount of water and exercise regularly. Even if you don’t it shouldn’t take a whole month to leave your system. 1g isn’t all that much, but it’s a nice amount for one week.
    But this is just my opinion, which your body probably doesn’t care about

    Yes, you’re an infrequent user.
    I think you’ll be clear in under two weeks as long as the cookies aren’t crazy strong.
    The more THC you put in your body, the more your fat cells will become saturated and the longer it’ll take to clear.

    One edible won’t stay in your system for long, especially if it’s only 10mg. I have a very relaxed attitude on life, not taking anything too seriously, so of course I would say live it up lol. But the real question is, do you have to drug test for your job?

        Yep, or maybe it was the type of weed used in the edible that didn’t agree with you but who knows. I’ve seen people flip out and get really paranoid with strong edibles made with schwag.

        I used to feel way too high with the standard 10mg dose. I thought the opiates I was on was potentiating the weed but idrk. I dropped down to 5mg and liked the light high much better. Eventually I could handle heavy doses, like 50mg+ but I had to work my way up.

The last time I consumed an edible was over 3 months ago. It was my first time taking one ever and I was stupid enough to take the whole thing at the same time because I didn’t think it would hit me since I’m a heavy weight. But my experience was awful and I didn’t know there was 69mg in a the piece of chocolate I ate.I haven’t done edibles or smoking since then. I’m wondering if anyone has short term memory loss after doing edibles? Sometimes I forget what I’m watching on tv or if I’m taking a nap and I wake up I forget how I wake up.

About last week i took 4 25mg edibles in total over the course of a week . That’s (100mg) of edibles. I’ve been cleaned for 8 days and Those my first couple of times getting high. I have a interview tomorrow and my friends that work there say that I have 2-3 weeks to take my urine test. I am 6″2 180lbs , I workout a lot and I drink a good amount of water. Do you think I can pass?

    Gary - July 11, 2017 Reply

    Stretching it out the full 3 weeks would put you right around the 1 month mark, which would give you a good chance of passing. Here’s what I would do in your situation. I’d drink lots of water, a bottle of pure cranberry juice, and keep active.

    I’d also buy a little pack of at home drug tests from Amazon (they’re pretty cheap) and test myself a couple of times the week leading up to the drug test. I’d test my morning urine (most potent) and afternoon urine to get a good indicator of my chances of passing. If I passed every time I tested myself, then I wouldn’t do anything else and would feel comfortable. If I didn’t pass, I’d get a 1 hour detox drink.

    With a 1-month time frame, I think you have a good chance of passing without a detox drink. But i would definitely test myself with an at-home kit before taking the real test.

    Good luck, Milo!

I’m going on a trip soon to a state where marijuana is legal and am thinking about trying an edible for the first time. However, I’m looking for a job that could potentially drug test and I want to be safe. I really want to try the edibles, especially to see how it helps my anxiety but I don’t want it to ruin my chances of getting a job if the opportunity arises. I only weigh 116 pounds and am 5’5″. I tend to eat pretty healthy and drink a decent amount of water. According to your article, it seems like it would clear within a week possibly. Do you think that would be the case? I wanted to try an edible, but it seems like smoking or vaping would be a better alternative in this case?

    Gary - July 7, 2017 Reply

    It’s really impossible to say for certain that it would clear that fast. And if they do a hair drug test, it goes back 90 days.
    You just have to weigh out the risk reward in this case. Worst case scenario, you don’t get the job and have to keep applying. If it’s not your dream job, then it doesn’t seem like a bd. You could also use a detox product if you really like the job offer you get and want to play it safe.
    You could also buy a home drug test kit off Amazon for under $10 and test yourself before the drug test to see if you should even consider the detox product.
    Good luck to ya, Rachel

    Why risk failing a drug test just to satisfy a desire to try something. Thinking long term. You should always think of the positives and negatives. If this much thought has to be put in to making a decision on such an important issue such as a drug test for a job then you should clearly have your answer. Best wishes, I hope you are hired in to a great company with great benefits and management that treats you well.

    Brace yourself. For a hair test it depends how fast your hair grows. The avg hair test detects 90 days back, but people have reported testing positive even after 90 days (metabolism, hair growth rate, ect). The faster your hair grows, the shorter that window.

    If your hair grows 2x the “normal” rate of 0.5″/month, then the test would only be able to detect 45 days back. That’s if they follow the standard of using 1.5″ of hair, cut from the root. If they use the hair from the ends of your strands, then it’ll detect as far back as the last time you cut your hair.

    Remember, this is just my opinion, not medical advice.
    5mg is a small dose. Most edibles are 10mg or bigger. I think you’d be clear in 2 weeks or less, seeing as to how it’s your first time and you’re not overweight.
    Again, just a guess.

i had surgery a week ago. Since then, i have been taking 5 to 10 mg per day in edible form. I have to pass a drug test before july 10. Last consumption was June 25, what are my chances of passing? i cant exercise bc im post operative, i drink a lot of water and i am kinda fat 🙁

    Ay caramba! You’re cutting it close.
    It could go either way in my opinion.
    A detox product might be your best bet.

I just ate my first 25 mg THC gummy, which was also my first high, and for the time I was high my memory would erase one I did 2 seconds ago, everything felt like a dream…

Is this a normal high for a first timer? How long will the THC stay in my system?

    Gary - July 2, 2017 Reply

    Ah nice! Everyone’s first time is unique. I’ve never experienced the memory thing, but different strains have effected me very differently. Some are very euphoric while others are more energizing and will give you the biggest case of the munchies ever.
    My first time I was immobilized. Just didn’t feel like moving, glued to the couch. My body felt like it was getting massaged from head to toe. Like I was liquid or something lol.
    My guess is you’ll clear the THC in under a month. Maybe even 2 weeks depending on the other factors, weight, exercise, water consumption, metabolism, etc…

Does niacin pills work? I ate a brownie three weeks ago and I have a test tomorrow I think. I’ve walked 4 miles a day, water and a gallon of cranberry juice. How’s that looking for me? A little on the heavy side also so I know that plays a role as well!

My friend gave me a piece of her edible brownie 2 days ago. I got a surprised job interview and they said they would give a drug testing. It was my first time using any marijuana products and I don’t know what to do exactly.

    Gary - May 22, 2017 Reply

    The good thing is, they probably won’t test you on the spot, right? WOuldn’t they test you several days later once they make a decision about whether to hire you or not.

    Make sure you’re drinking plenty of water everyday and start exercising if you don’t already. Lastly, adding some real cranberry juice (comes in glass jar) to your daily regimen will help flush it out faster. If the test is soon, then you can always look for a natural detox product designed and marketed for passing THC drug tests. Just make sure you do your research on the product thoroughly.

    Good luck to you, Katelyn!

Im fighting disability and a chronic used for 25 yrs or more. I’m 52 and notice in my medical.records dr plans UDI test next appt do to fact that I’ve been on Prozac for few yrs. And clonipan..I’m planning to quit in the next week for 7weeks or longer. Also at same time I plan to workout since I’m 50lbs overweight or little more. Hoping to drop 20-30 lbs. I drink a lot water..daily for past 15-20 yrs so hydrating is not an issue. Should I drink cranberry juice for 2-3 weeks before the appt. There is a lot on the line. Fighting disability for past 4,yrs. I need to pass sibce medical records go to lawyers n thus Ss disability. Help me.need advice. Lost my home 2yrs ago daughter wth schizophrenia. Mom in nursing home. Depression and anxiety and arthritis in knees n shoulders ..going physical therapy for shoulders can’t sleep pain terrible.

    Gary - May 22, 2017 Reply

    Yes, drinking cranberry juice for several weeks will help. My advice, stop using THC products immediately and pick back up after the test. Since you have a lot riding on this, you might want to air on the side of caution and give your body ample time to pass the THC.

    Good luck to you, Valerie! You got this!

      Gary-if a person does approximately 30mg THC every day but I have to pass a urine test in two weeks. When should I cut completely off? I’m inn Aton of pain, but I don’t want to blow starting a new pain clinic. Thank you!

        Gary - June 8, 2017 Reply

        Ahh, sticky situation. Honestly, I don’t know if 2 weeks is enough time to get it out of your system if you do 30mg a day. A lot of factors come into play like weight, exercise, and water consumption but 2 weeks would be cutting it close.

          Linda - July 1, 2017 Reply

          Seriously, not trying to nit-pick! What about 3 weeks VS the 2 week cut/off from edibles I mentioned in my first note to you? I saw the dr last Tuesday. Tonite is Saturday. I see him in 3 weeks. Total abstinence-think I’ll pass?

      Linda - June 29, 2017 Reply

      Gary, if a person has to pass a urine screen once every 4 weeks, in what week leading up to the appointment should I completely stop marijuana edibles? I take an average of about 30mg-40mg of THC edibles per day.,How long before that amount will completely clear my system? I take it for pain relief. Is the amount I mention above that I take excessive, in your opinion? I’m new to this so wantto figure out exact dose just for mild pain relief. But I do have a urine screen every 30 days.
      Any advice or solid knowledge about this situation will be appreciated. Pot is the best pain reliever -I just don’t like to be too high as I’m not productive then.
      Add that to chronic pain, not a good combo. I think pot is better and safer than pills. I have some serious pain issues/one is my head. On pot edibles, I just forgot I had a head. Was 100% pain free. Amazing-but I need to pass the tests monthly and that clock is already ticking. Thank you!

        Gary - July 2, 2017 Reply

        This is just my opinion, not medical advice.
        The more frequently you take edibles, the longer it’ll take for you to pass. The THC will build up and saturate your fat cells. If you use it daily, it could take more than 4 weeks to pass. When there’s a lot riding on the test, it’s always better to play it safe.
        I’d recommend you try CBD. It only has trace levels of THC, which usually isn’t enough to trigger a positive drug test. It’s great for relief.
        If you want to play it extra safe, you could try CBD isolate, which doesn’t have any THC at all.
        An alternative route could be using detox products, but having to use them every month could get expensive.
        Since you don’t want to be high all of the time, CBD could be a good choice.

Gary, I took some edible gummies 3 weeks ago and the last time I was high before that was also 3 weeks. I’m 6’3 and 140 lbs so really skinny obviously. I’m an avid basketball player and exercise every day. Do you think I’ll still test positive for HTC?

    Gary - May 18, 2017 Reply

    If I had to guess, I’d guess that you would pass. I’m assuming you drink a lot of water too. But this is just as guess, as you know this is a very subjective matter. Good luck to you, Mark!

    Gary, I ate edibles 38 days ago, and infrequently used before (once or twice a month, sometimes less), and have a 10 panel drug test in a couple days. I’ve been clean for the 38 days, and I have a very high metabolism (female, 5’8″, 98lbs)… do you think I will pass?

      Gary - July 2, 2017 Reply

      Sorry for the late reply, Jane. Just got back from vacation.
      My guess is that you would have passed.

      Did you pass?

Thank you so much for this information. Virtual hug!I didn’t know there was a thing called CBD oil. I will be working as a medical assistant and I know that whatever job I apply for, there will be a drug test.
I live in California where it’s legal. However, according to the job regulations, it’s up to them if they can fire or hire if you are positive for thc.
Wished I could make them walk in my skin for a day and see what I suffer from. I’m tired of muscle relaxers and antidepressants.

    Gary - May 8, 2017 Reply

    Yes, it’s possible that it could show up on the test but I can’t give you a definitive answer. It all depends on the other factors listed which will determine how fast your body decides to pass the THC.

Jeff savournin - April 21, 2017 Reply

Ate a 10 mg cookie for 3 days. Remember nothing for 2 days except I knew I was in the hospital. Couldn’t even tell my wife her name. No more edibles for me. Smoke only.. Some scary shit..

    Gary - April 23, 2017 Reply

    That sounds like your cookie was laced with something. I’ve never heard of those effects from marijuana. Nonetheless, after an experience like that I’d be taking a long hiatus from cannabis too. Glad you’re okay.
    All the best!

Murder face - February 12, 2017 Reply

K.. I haven’t been a regular user for years (used to smoke daily for 15 ish yrs). Last I smoked was in December, it’s now early February. While far from proud of it, I’m detoxing from shittier substances (which I’m very happy about) that were taking me downhill FAST! Anyway, I am planning to eat probably half of a 40mg caramel. I know I’ll be ok with my past experience with drugs. I’m not “fit” per se, but I’m job searching which usually requires a pre-employment drug screen. Being that my system is clean, roughly how long do you think it’ll take for me to get to a passable THC level??

    Gary - February 12, 2017 Reply

    So many factors come into play. Anything I tell you would just be a guess that I pulled out of may ass. With that said, I’d imagine it wouldn’t take any more than a month. Maybe even 2-3 weeks. But like I said, that’s just a guess.

    If I were you, I’d hold off on the caramel to play it safe. You could use it as a reward to celebrate your new job after you get it and pass the test. It’ll actually motivate your brain to land a job and you’ll be able to piss with peace of mind.

    And congrats on coming off of the harmful substances, Murder Face!

Nervous girl - February 10, 2017 Reply

Hey I’m freaking out . I do not smoke or take edibles but my friend gave me half of a 10 mg cookie . I didn’t feel anything so I took a full 10mg which was 15mg. I was extremely high bugging out all night. The next day I found out I got my dream job and need to be drug tested.. this was on January 18th and my drug test is February 13th.Been working out like crazy and drinking water. I took an at home drug test today and the line was negative but very faint. I am freaked out. Any advice ?

    Gary - February 10, 2017 Reply

    Working out and drinking water was a good move. Passing the at-home drug test is a good sign, but it’s not a guarantee that you’ll pass. It depends on how sensitive their test is.

    I think you will be fine since you do not use marijuana regularly. If you can get your hands on a 20 ng/mL drug test and pass it you can rest a lot easier. If yours was 20 ng/mL, you should be good.

    If you take another at home test and fail, then you might have to go the synthetic urine route. It’s riskier because you have to get the urine to your body temperature and hide it. If they watch you pee, it’ll make it a whole lot harder.

    You could try a drink that flushes your system for a day. But if your test was 20 ng/mL and you passed, I would just keep drinking water and working out to play it safe.

    You could Google the “company name” + “drug test” and see if you can find out more about their test. Which company they use, what’s the threshold for a positive test, do they watch, etc. It’s no guarantee that you’ll find anything, but it’s worth a shot.

    Good luck to you and congrats on landing a bomb ass job!

I am not a smoker nor I eat edibles at all bt the other day I was given LITERALLY a little CRUMB of a cookie. I am kind of freaking out I dont know why but my main concern or should I say my question to you is will it even go into my system if so for how long??

    Gary - February 4, 2017 Reply

    Haha you have nothing to worry about. I’m not sure how small the crumb was, but it might not be enough to trigger a positive result. With marijuana tests, there’s a threshold you have to cross before being considered positive.

They will ship to any state … when its illegal where I live unless you have a card?…. And I’m not a smoker but I take lots of meds for pain and anxiety I really would like to get off of pills so was thinking editables or vape don’t like to smoke….. But I also wanna have energy not eat and sit on couch …..what do u suggest is there a type that will make me hv energy and help with pain and stress?? Thanks!

    Gary - January 20, 2017 Reply

    They ship to any state. They claim it’s legal but idk. I would contact them with any questions regarding legality.

    If you want energy, go with a Sativa based edible. An easy way to remember is, Indica = in-da-couch
    You might have to get in touch with them to see which ones are Sativa based because they don’t list it on their site.

How long does an edible of 160mg last in my blood ? I exercise 3 days out the week & hydrate myself regularly.

    Gary - January 5, 2017 Reply

    That’s a pretty heavy dose. If this was just a one time thing, you can expect it to clear on the faster side. If you smoke or eat edibles regularly, then your fat cells will be saturated with THC and it will take longer to clear. Another factor would be how much fat is on your body. If you’re pretty slim, it’ll clear faster than if you’re on the thicker side. We can’t give you an exact estimate, but based on the factors you can reasonably guess whether it’ll clear your system on the quicker or slower side of the range given in the article.
