drug testing

 

 

 

Testing for drug use has become part of life for many of us. Whether it is suggested at the doctor’s office, required by that new job you just applied for, or as part of probation, testing might be completely random or rigidly scheduled.
Perhaps sadly and definitely contrary to popular hope, there is no foolproof way to beat a drug test. There simply is no way to know if you will or will not come up “dirty” or “clean” other than not using.

A LITERAL HOST OF THINGS IMPACT HOW YOUR BODY PROCESSES AND EXCRETES ANY DRUG OR ITS METABOLITES. HERE ARE SOME OF THE MAIN THINGS THAT CHANGE THE RATE YOU RELEASE THE STUFF SCREENED FOR IN LAB TESTS:

... THE AMOUNT AND FREQUENCY OF YOUR USE
YOUR BASELINE AND AMPED UP METABOLIC
RATE AND FLUCTATIONS BETWEEN THE TWO
YOUR BODY MASS
YOUR AGE
YOUR HEALTH OVERALL
YOUR DRUG TOLERANCE
THE pH OF YOUR URINE

That said, we offer the following chart of detection periods for a variety of substances. The chart offers approximate periods of detection by test type but these are not set in stone or by any means guaranteed.
