Does it matter how you consume a substance? Does it have same effects if consumed differently? Does it influence a drug test outcome?
- I use THC, pretty much on daily basis, and I need to go for a test sometime soon, and I was just wondering if I can pass it on my own or not?
- If you are a daily user and have a test soon, you won’t be able to pass on your own: you need to stop using, lower your toxin level and use a detox product on the day of your test.
- But what if I don’t smoke it, but use a vaporizer? That is different from smoke and I don’t think that it will give the same test results on a drug test…
- A vaporizer removes all the harmful toxins from marijuana smoke, reduces tar, etc., but the active ingredient – cannabinoids – stays present, since the psychoactive ingredients evaporate and you get the same effect from the vaporizer as you get from smoking, just without any hazardous smoke to your lungs. In other words, toxins enter your body and you test positive for marijuana.
- Can they tell how you were using it?
- No, but it will not matter – whether you smoke it, inhale or eat cookies – it all will give the same positive result.
- I see… Ok, so what was that detox product you were talking about?
Vaporizers heat cannabis to 356° – 392° F, just below the point of combustion where smoke is produced, are let users inhale active cannabinoids while avoiding harmful smoke toxins. At this point, THC and other medically active cannabinoids are emitted with little or none of the carcinogenic tars and noxious gases found in smoke. But THC is still THC, and does not leave your body for a while. So no matter how you consume, make sure that you are prepared to pass a test with confidence.
