The length of time that marijuana remains detectable varies from one person to another, as different people metabolize drugs differently. Marijuana is also affected by the frequency at which it is used. A single use of marijuana is detectable for 5-8 days. In a person that uses marijuana 2-4 times per month, it will be detectable for 11-18 days. In a person that uses it daily, it can be detectable for months. Therefore, if this was a single use, then you are probalby fine, but if there has benn recurrent use, it would be likely to be detected. There is nothing that has been shown to truly work to clear the marijuana from the body more quickly than the body naturally clears it..

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
