Armentano: Different metabolites have different half-lives. That has to do with the makeup of the metabolite itself. A water-soluble metabolite is going to be broken down and excreted as waste by the body much more quickly than will a fat-soluble metabolite. It's literally simply the chemistry of THC that makes it present for a far longer time than it would otherwise be. Someone's metabolic rate may influence some variation of how long that process is going to take.
But at a fundamental level, drug tests are going to be much more likely to identify someone who uses cannabis as opposed to someone who uses other drugs, simply because cannabis' metabolite is fat-soluble and most other drug metabolites are water-soluble. It hides in the fat cells of every body—no matter their weight. These detoxifier drinks, exercising, and drinking a lot of water prior to a test can flush those things out of the system. The detoxifiers will help get the THC out of the fat cells and they also supply something in case it didn't get all of it. It covers THC leaks and hides that from the testers. What do you think is the best way to beat a dirty urine? Cooper: The detox business is a multi-million dollar industry.

Armentano: Abstinence is the only sure-fire way to beat a drug test. It's even possible that somebody may have never been exposed to illicit drugs and could have an unfortunate incidence where their test comes back positive anyway. That's why our samples are generally split into an A sample and a B sample. Are their any over the counter or internet products you recommend? Armentano: I wouldn't feel comfortable endorsing any product. Particularly products that are sold over the internet. For the last 12 years I've been working to keep people out of jail.

This Is What Happened When I Smoked The 100% THC Joint My Parents Bought. My parents traveled back from Amsterdam with two pre-rolled joints to Oklahoma. They didn’t try to hide it, or even think to be concerned, they just kept them in a Ziploc bag in their suitcase, I’m guessing next to the Ziploc bag of hotel bath soaps because you know – parents. I can’t imagine how nervous I would be in that situation, but to my parents, they were of the mindset that they were bringing medicine back for my grandmother, whom was battling through an illness and our family was looking for anything to offer pain relief. To them they weren’t transporting a drug, they were bringing home medicine.
It’s still cute to me though, they never thought to worry. My dad went into what looked to be a nice dispensary in Amsterdam and asked for the, “Purest marijuana you have.” His thinking was that would mean the most organic and the healthiest choice. What the budtender heard however, maybe with all being lost-in-international-non-stoner-translation, is the flower with the highest THC content. “He said it was 100% THC,” my father explained after the fact, not really knowing what THC means or the fact that “100% THC” doesn’t exist in flower. We later found out on a discarded label that is was close to 40% THC, which is still to this day the strongest I’ve seen. A few days after my parents were back home, they asked me to test out the “joint” (they had a lot fun saying that) before they gave it to my grandmother. Ten times, maybe, is how much I had smoked over the past ten years, but I felt up to the task – only being unnerved by the fact I was going to be smoking pot in front of my parents for the first time. We sat on the back porch, and me wanting to show off, I took the pre-roll, lit it up and puffed away like a magic dragon. My mother even said, “Shouldn’t you just take a hit or two?” “Oh mother, you’re so silly. You might have accidentally smuggled drugs across countries but just watch and learn,” I said, as the joint hung from my lips and I took a sip of wine ala Kramer style.
My parents were laughing, I joined in, but very loudly. I turned the corner fast, even though I thought I was moving soooo slooww (say that in slow mo with me) and ran directly into the kitchen island. After a few steps I made it around the next corner and fell face down into the carpet.
