Detection of THC in the urine can vary depending on a couple factors. When did you take the high dose of THC? How regularly do you use THC otherwise?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
just took it 24 hours before the test. I don't normally ever take thc
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
should this have prevented a positive test?
Doctor: Dr. Huynh, Board Certified Physician replied 7 months ago

Unfortunately, the time of ingestion to urine test is very short. It is likely that the test will turn positive. People have tried the dilution method before and it has worked for some. But, it has never been proven under clinical studies!

I'm sorry that is probably not the answer you are looking for. If you have any other questions about this concern, please feel free to ask. Otherwise, please take a moment to rate me a 5 or let me know how I can improve. Happy Holidays!

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.

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.
