I am Dr.Aren and I will help with your query.Occasional oral cannabinoid users usually have peak levels within 2-5 hours and will not test positive in blood test for cannabis/THC after 25 hours,regular users and smokers may need to abstain for at least 4-6 weeks before test(especially urine tests for THC)become negative.There is no known method which will hasten excretion of THC from the body.Hydration and exercise are supposed to help but do not seem to alter the tests to a large degree.
