Legalization of cannabis is still a dream that can’t be achieved. Although, there are states that legalize marijuana use for medical and recreational purposes, companies still have problems with applicants who tested positive for marijuana. Legalization of the plant doesn’t mean the stigma will disappear. Finding jobs for people who use cannabis, even if it’s for medical purposes is still very hard. Because of this problem, people have to choose between giving up the medication that’s been helping them with their illness or find ways how to beat the test.
Start testing yourself.
The best way to pass a drug test is to do it yourself. A urine test can detect marijuana 1-5 days after use. If you are a regular user it takes 1-3 weeks before it goes out of your system and if you are multiple daily users, it takes at least a month. If you only use once a week, there’s nothing to worry about. But if you are a regular user, it is best to buy a testing kit after you completed your cleansing regimen. It takes time to get rid of cannabis out of your system, it is better to clean yourself months after use to be safe.

How long does it take to cleanse?

You can also take vitamin supplements, especially vitamin B complex since you are pumping your body with a lot of water, your urine will look diluted.

What are the factors that play a vital role in how long marijuana stays in your body?

Genetics is also a big factor. Some people have a faster metabolism, some people don’t. General health also plays a big factor when it comes to metabolizing certain chemical components. People with certain health conditions have slower metabolism compared to healthy people.

Can second-hand smoke give you positive result?
It depends on what kind of testing kits you use. If you use a 50 ng/ml kit, there is a slim chance you can be tested positive. Unless you are in a closed car full of people who smoke cannabis for at least an hour and you were tested the following day. If you are a non-smoker and you are in a ventilated area with people who smoke, you are very safe.
