Answers provided are for informational use only and do not confer patient-provider relationship. My name is ***** ***** I will help you.

Regular users can expect to test positive for up to 6 weeks after the last use, so you would have at least a couple of weeks to go before your urine would test clean. Marijuana metabolites (what the tests actually test for) are stored in body fat and released very slowly over time in the normal turnover of fat cells. That is why it takes so long. Hair tests would be positive for at least 3 months.

ok is there a way to speed up the process

I'm sorry but there is not. It is tied to the normal turnover of body cells. There is little you can do to change that in two weeks.

I'm sorry that isn't what you want to hear, but it's the correct answer. It's a question we're asked several times a day.

Best regards,
