Marijuana, derived from the Cannabis sativa plant, contains the psychoactive compound THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). It is used both recreationally and medicinally. Recreational use produces euphoria and relaxation, while medicinal use includes pain relief, reducing nausea, and alleviating symptoms of chronic conditions. Its legal status varies by region, with increasing acceptance for medicinal purposes....


Who would benefit from testing marijuana?

Testing for marijuana is pertinent for individuals in employment scenarios where drug-free policies are enforced, athletes under anti-doping regulations, and in legal settings where marijuana use is implicated. It’s also used in medical and rehabilitation contexts to monitor use or abstinence in treatment programs, and to assess patients for potential abuse or dependency.

How long does marijuana stay in your system?

The duration marijuana remains detectable in the system varies widely. It depends on factors like frequency of use, potency, and individual metabolism. Typically, THC can be found in urine for 3 days after occasional use, up to 30 days or more for regular users. In blood, it remains detectable for 1-2 days, but may linger longer in heavy users. In saliva, it can be detected for up to 48 hours, and in hair, it can be traceable for months.

How long after use should you take the test?

For most accurate results, GetTested’s marijuana test should ideally be taken within 1-3 days after the last use.
