The issue of drugs is one that every public institution such as a company, school or any of the disciplined forces take very seriously. People that use drugs are said to be under the influence of foreign substances which impairs their decision making. For this reason, any person that may have used or gotten into contact with any drug does all they can to rid their system of drug traces when joining these institutions. Cannabis is one of the drugs that a person joining a public institution or company will be tested for. But there is one question that is always in the mind of a person using weed that is likely to be subjected to a drug test. This question that comes to the minds of the users is how long weed lasts in your system.
The use of any product that contains weed leaves a number of substances attached to a person’s body cells. It is these products that are detected when a person undergoes a drug test. The most common substances that will be found in almost all marijuana products are THC and CBD. Apart from these, you will find others in trace amounts such as CBC, CBL, CBE and CBND. Most of these substances will not last long in your body but the CBD and THC take quite some time.
The amount of time it takes for weed to clear from your system may be dependent on a number of things. The first thing is the amount of time a person has consumed the weed. Every time a person consumes weed, its contents attach themselves on the fatty cells of the body. Going by this, it is true that the longer the time a person consumes weed, the more time is required to clear it from the system.
Up to seventy days will be needed for a person that uses weed daily to clean his system from it. For those taking it for up to five times a week, forty days of abstinence will be enough. For the three days per week weed users, two weeks abstinence will be enough for the body to be clean. One time weed users need only one week for them to have their body systems free of weed.
The other thing that can determine the amount of time it will take to rid your system of weed is if you are using detoxification products or not. When a person uses detoxification together with abstinence, their systems are rid of weed faster. Water consumption has also been proven to help a person’s body clear of weed faster.
