Hello,

Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** and I will be helping you today.

Expert:  A. Schuyler, NP replied 1 year ago.

Hair follicle testing typically looks for metabolites of cocaine, marijuana, opiates, methamphetamine, and phencyclidine (PCP). If one of those is in whatever was inhaled, then it will show up. However, the tests don't look for the gas that was inhaled.

Best regards,
