Pot is the most usually used and tested for drug in the United States and other countries. The effects pot has on the pot smoker and detection time are based upon its potency, which is associated with the amount of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) it contains. When you ask the question "How much time does weed remain in your body?", you should take into account the fact that there is no definite answer to the question. THC can stay in the system for as long as 3 to 90 days after smoking or being taken orally. There are a number of criteria determining for how long drug toxins stay in the body: for example, your general health, your body weight, metabolism, the type of drug toxin, the level of exposure to the drug, and so on. The speed at which marijuana leaves your system is dependent both upon the speed of your metabolism as well as on the half-life of THC. It is estimated that THC can have a half-life that ranges from 1 to 10 days. It is impossible to determine what that half-life is, which means that it is very difficult to use it to cipher how much time it will take THC to leave your body. The type of test carried out can also have an effect upon if or not pot is detected. When urine screening is the most widespread, it is also the least precise. Pot can still be detected in a urine test up to a month after the last administration. If you smoke it now and then, it will stay in your system for up to 10 days. If you smoke pot on a regular basis, it will stay in your body for as long as 45 days, and if you smoke weed at a constant pace, it can stay in the system up to 90 days. Blood tests are far more reliable, though more pricy. As THC is stored in the fat cells of the major organs, the chemical substance is gradually released into the bloodstream, where it eventually passes through the liver, and then leaves the body. Hair tests are assumed to be reliable, as hair "keeps a record" of everything your system has been through when that hair was growing. Yet, hair tests very costly and seldom done by employers.
