I would wait at least the standard 3 months.

Drug Testing Expert: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 10 months ago

You don't smoke all that much so 3 months would be quite conservative and you should be safe and wouldn't test positive.

If you're very pressed and feeling confident you can stretch to 40 days. That's assuming the strain isn't super potent and you are somewhat of an active person with decent metabolism.

Oh wow 3 months for a couple times once a week? I took an at home test it said I was negative. Do lab test show thc longer?
Drug Testing Expert: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 10 months ago

Which home test kit did you use?

Ask Your Own Drug Testing Question
Drug Testing Expert: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 10 months ago

The most accurate urine lab tests will be able to spot THC for up to 20 days longer than the weakest home test kits.

Drug Testing Expert: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 10 months ago

But that's a good sign that you tested negative. Wait another 20 days and you would be more than safe in my opinion.

Just a stick test I bought at Walmart that test for thc
Drug Testing Expert: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 10 months ago

I think that's the Alere test. Yea, that one is your run of the mill average home sensitivity. So 20 days would be safe.

O crap I already took the test it was a random at work but it had only been 6 days since I took like two puffs.
Drug Testing Expert: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 10 months ago

Yea but the test can show up positive within 2-3 days if it's a urine test.

Drug Testing Expert: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 10 months ago

I mean 2 puffs is very low so that improves your chances.

Any way for you to get a backdated medical marijuana card?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Not in Texas. Just wondering how worried I should be. If had people tell me they've passed after 3 to 7 days of abstinence. Some say it took them 30. I hardly smoke like I said a couple puffs one night a week I'm pretty muscular not much body fat.
Drug Testing Expert: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 10 months ago

I agree with you, I think your risk is really low to test positive. You'd probably be fine even after a week but my job on here is to make sure my clients pass 100% - without a shadow of doubt so I have to be more conservative.
