How long does weed stay in your system?

Are the thoughts of failing in a drug test at your office constantly hovering over your mind? Well, then it’s time you get the answer to the question which is running across your mind which is, “How long are traces of weed or marijuana available in one’s body or biological system? Now, there is no straight cut answer to this and a lot of researchers have a lot of different answers to this one question. For instance, a study conducted in the year of 1989 drove home the fact that at a sensitivity of 20ng/ml, the traces of weed or cannabis could be available for a stretch of 25 days.

Similarly, there are other experts like a renowned professor from Johns Hopkins University named Ryan Vandrey who is of the notion that traces of marijuana could be found in your system for a period of 30 days as well depending on the usage patterns and frequency. There are a number of tests that are done to decipher whether one tests positive for drugs or not. Most commonly, it is the urine test that puts the final nail on the coffin when it comes to confirmation of the presence of a drug in one’s body. However, there are other tests done as well which takes in account other DNA factors like hair, sweat, blood, finger nails, breath etc.

Now some of the studies point towards the fact that if you are an incessant smoker of weed and you have weed baked into your daily routine then the traces could be available for a span of over forty five days and this could even increase up to sixty or more days depending on the amount or quantity of weed you smoke. Alternatively, if you are smoker of weed who gets high on weed only five to six times in a week, then you could be tested positive for drugs till a month or even up to forty days. Likewise, if you have a moderate usage and smoke weed or marijuana around a couple of times or maximum four times a week then the traces of the weed can be found in your urine till eleven days and could extend up to eighteen days as well. The commonly known fact is that on one’s first encounter with weed or marijuana, the traces of the cannabis could stay for a span of five to eight days.

Therefore, whenever you are about to get high on weed, ensure that you give enough time to your body to do away with the traces before you go in for a drug test.
