While many states debate their stance on medical and recreational cannabis, workplace drug tests are still commonplace. 84% of employers still administer tests, whether it is by urine which is the most common, oral, or other methods. Since cannabis is still considered an illegal substance at the federal level, employers still have the power to refuse employment based on the results of a drug test, even in states where medicinal and/or recreational use is legal. Many government employers, military, and public service companies deny employment to recipients of failed tests for any reason, per policy. Apart from pre-employment, there are several other situations in which you may need to complete a urine drug screening: probation, custody, insurance coverage, sports or at the request of a physician, to name just a few.
To make matters worse, the technology used by drug testing facilities continues to become more and more sophisticated. Cheap or gimmicky solutions like fake urine or masking agents are now easier to detect than ever before. THC detox companies, such as Green Gone LLC, offer customized detox solutions in order to combat rigorous laboratory testing methods.
Quest Diagnostics, a clinical lab that tracks national employment trends, notes that cannabis has seen the highest increase in positive tests for employment between 2012 and 2017. That figure appears to be a result of both an increase in cannabis consumption and stricter, more effective testing methods. For cannabis consumers, this means the margin for error is smaller than ever.
When Should You Use a THC Detox Product?
Numerous medical literature sources have studied how long THC can be detected in urine tests after consumption. The Mayo Clinic suggests the following ranges;
- Single use: 3 days – up to a week.
- Moderate use (4 times per week): 10 days – 3 weeks or more.
- Heavy use (daily): 15 days – a month or more.
- Chronic heavy use: 30 days – up to 3 months.
Numerous factors affect how long THC remains in your system. Urine tests actually detect the presence of the primary metabolite THC-COOH (THC carboxylic acid), as well as several other similar metabolites which indicate that THC has recently been processed by the body. THC-COOH is partially stored in fat cells and can be re-released into the bloodstream when those cells are burned. However, even in the bloodstream, THC-COOH is highly protein-bound to a blood component known as albumin. There are many contributing factors to extremely long drug test detection times, including;
- Low water-solubility
- High protein-binding
- Low liver enzyme metabolism rate
- Biliary recirculation in the gut
- Already low urinary pH
This pharmacokinetic system is far more complex than a simple flush. Other factors such as diet, body weight, and exercise frequency all play a role in the way THC is stored in your body. With the growing popularity of stronger, higher THC-content cannabis, oils, waxes, edibles and other products the amount in the system is often several times over the detectable level of 50ng/ml on a standard urine dipstick. A high-exposure starting point, with low amounts of abstinent time, only further complicates matters.
Many THC detox products don’t offer a single, simple solution without taking into account the broad range of factors that affect how our bodies store, process, and most importantly eliminate THC, THC-COOH, and other detectable metabolites.
