How Long Does Cannabis Stay in the System
There are many factors...
After cannabis use, the amount of time that the drug remains in an individual’s body varies. Within a few hours of cannabis consumption, metabolites can be detected in a person’s urine. The presence of cannabis metabolites can continue to be detected up to a few days after a single dose of THC, or up to 30 days or longer following heavy usage.
There are many factors that determine how long it can be detected:
- Frequency of consumption
- Dosage levels
- How long ago it was last consumed
- The drug test sensitivity
- Your metabolism
- Body composition, specifically body fat levels of the person (THC binds to fat in the body)
