Does THC Show Up On a Drug Test? The Answer Shouldn’t Surprise You

by Grace

We get it. You want to make sure that you’re able to pass a drug test, and you don’t want to be penalized by your employer if they find out that you’ve been using THC. But here’s the thing: a lot of people are doing it anyway. A recent study found that 20% of people in their late teens and early 20s have used marijuana in the past month. And that’s just one form of substance use. If we look at all forms of substance use, including alcohol and prescription drugs, we find that about half of Americans consume at least one type of drug per month.

So why do so many people still avoid using THC? It’s not just because they’re worried about their job—it’s also because they think they’ll get less high than other drugs if they smoke or eat cannabis instead of smoking it.

The truth is that there are no real studies on how much THC you need in order to feel high, but there are some assumptions based on anecdotal evidence from users who say they’ve had similar experiences with different forms of consumption, but they pretty much all show up on a drug test.

Can modern drug tests distinguish between THC and CBD?

Can modern drug tests distinguish between THC and CBD?

The short answer is yes. The long answer is: it depends on the drug test, but you probably don’t have to worry about it.

It’s widely known that many employers like to test for cannabis use, since it can affect performance and safety in the workplace. But how do they tell whether someone has THC or CBD in their system?

CBD is non-psychoactive and doesn’t cause a high, so it’s not illegal under federal law—but there are states where recreational use is still illegal. THC is psychoactive, so it’s illegal under federal law, but legal in some states for medicinal purposes or even recreational use. Both of these compounds are found in cannabis plants. So if you’ve eaten some edibles or smoked some flower, how can the test tell which one is causing your positive result?

Well… they can’t! Or at least not easily enough for you to worry about it happening while you’re still trying to figure out what kind of career path will fit your lifestyle best (and whether or not you’ll need a new job soon). If you’re worried about being tested for drugs at work, talk with your employer before taking any THC.

Do THC vapes show up on drug tests?

When you’re trying to figure out if a THC cartridge will show up on a drug test, it can be hard to know what to believe. Drug tests come in all shapes and sizes and are used for different purposes.

For example, if you’re using marijuana for medical reasons, you may have heard that there are some tests that can detect THC in your system even after it’s been out of your body for weeks. But what about recreational users?

Let’s start by taking a look at what kind of drug tests would be used on a recreational user.

Urine tests are the most common type of drug test out there—they’re used by employers, schools, parents and others looking to see if someone is using drugs. Urine tests are also the most likely to show traces of marijuana use within a few days after use. The only way to pass this kind of test is not to take any drugs at all!

Saliva tests are becoming more common because they’re less invasive than urine tests (you don’t have to pee in a cup). They’re also still pretty accurate for detecting THC use within 24 hours of consumption. Unfortunately, these tests aren’t always given out by employers or schools—but many parents do give them when checking up on their kids.

Do THC edibles show up on drug tests?

The answer to that question is yes. However, it depends on the type of test you’re taking, and if you know how to avoid certain things.

THC edibles do show up on drug tests because they contain THC, which is a psychoactive element found in marijuana plants. THC is also known as delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol and can cause a high or euphoria when consumed.

THC is created when heat is applied to cannabis flowers, so ingesting cannabis through edibles or vaporizing will cause this chemical to enter your bloodstream and eventually make its way into your urine sample.

So what happens when THC enters your body? Well, it’s absorbed into the bloodstream through the intestines and lungs and distributed throughout the body via the blood. From there, it goes straight to your brain where it attaches itself to receptors called CB1 receptors (CB stands for cannabinoid) which are responsible for regulating moods and movement coordination among other functions like memory formation as well as appetite control as well as sleep cycles by affecting neurotransmitters like dopamine (the feel-good hormone) which also plays a role in addiction development.

Short answer – yes, edibles show up on a drug test.

If you have to take a drug test, don’t use THC

Most people know that using marijuana will make their urine test positive for weed for up to two weeks after they last smoked. But did you know that THC can stay in your body for even longer than that? So if you want to make sure you pass your drug test, it’s important to know how long THC stays in your system.

How Long Does Weed Stay In Your System?

THC (which stands for tetrahydrocannabinol) is the active ingredient in marijuana that produces the “high” feeling when you smoke it. The amount of time it stays in your system depends on many factors, including how often you use marijuana and how much of it you consume. Here are some common scenarios:

If You Smoke Daily: THC can stay in your system anywhere from 1-3 days after using marijuana daily for several weeks or longer depending on how much you use at once (e.g., smoking a joint vs vaping). If this is your situation and you need a quick fix before taking a drug test, try using a detox drink first thing in the morning before going into work without fail!
