Hello,

You are quite safe with this.

In light users, cannabis is detected in urine for 3-4 days only.

For more chronic users it may be detected upto 10 days.

In very heavy users and those with a lot of fat, it may be detected upto 30 days.

In your case, it would have been detectable only upto 3-4 days.

So you are quite safe with this.

I asked a dr on your site a couple of hours ago and his response was that some researchers show thc can be detected up to 13 days.


His final response was that he was pretty sure I would pass. So..im a bit confused here on the facts along with all the mis information online sites. they vary greatly. Being a dr are you certain in your answer based on my situation? thank you.

Expert:  Dr. P. Jyoti replied 1 year ago.
Thats right, I am pretty certain.

You see, what the other doctor said was also not wrong.

In the sense that the detection rate of marijuana in urine can vary from 3 to 30 days.

For mild smokers, which is exactly what your exposure amounts to, it is only 3-4 days. Thats for occassional smokers.

For chronic users, ie, those who smoke it more or less regulary, it can go upto 10 days or 13 days as the other doctor said.

The longest detection rate is upto 30 days. Thats only for very heavy smokers and those who have a lot of body fat. You are in no sense such a heavy smoker, nor a chronic smoker.

Your exposure was definitely that of a light smoker, and you would have tested positive for 3-4 days, maximum for 7 days. Even if we say 10 days you are still safe (from 24th June).

So I am confident as far as my opinion goes that you are very safe.
