    What are the odds?

    Took a drug test at lab corp 11/3, the last time I smoked was 9/12. I smoked about 2-3 bowls a day for about 2 months before I stopped. I took an at home drug test and said negative, but the bottom line was barely visible but was there. Im 510 and 200 pounds. I know no one has the answer yes or no if i passed just wanted to hear some opinions. thanks in advance

    Did you take your home test before or after your scheduled test?

    If before, did you use the first void of the day?

    I took the home test the day before, and on the night before the drug test, and the day of i drank a ton of water and pomagranite juice. I peed about 3 times before i took the test.

    When taking the home test, you shouldve used the first void of the morning when THCA concentrations would be at their highest (aka the "worst case scenario"). If you tested negative under that worst case scenario (regardless of line intensity) youre good to go.

    Taking home tests during the latter parts of the day skews the results due to the fluids you have consumed during the day in order to maintain hydration. Fluid consumption reduces the THCA concentration (albiet temporarily) in your bladder. Once all of the fluids consumed had all been urinated out, the bladder is replenished with fresh THCA-laden urine and thus, the "dirty" donor would resume testing positive for THC.

    and the day of i drank a ton of water and pomagranite juice.
    That much fluid intake on the day of the U/A would certainly increase the chances of a "too-dilute" result.

    Who made you take a drug test and for what reason?

    That would depend, among numerous other factors, on how long youve been smoking and how much were you smoking prior to abstination.

    I took the drug test for a new job im hoping to get. I was clean from 2/15 to 7/8...smoked 2-3 bowls a day from 7/8 to 9/12....been clean since9/12. From reading ive seen it sticks to your fat cells. I take many vitamins and antioxidants regularly., and I did lose 12 lbs since I stopped smoking.

    Vitamins and antioxidants have no effect on THC metabolites. The only proven way to rid the body of THC is time and fat-burning exercise.

    THC is stored in the fat cells and remain there until the fat cells are burned for energy. When fat cells burn, the THC metabolites are released back into the bloodstream. From there, the kidneys filter the THC metabolites and deposits them into the bladder. This is the main reason why THC carries a longer detection period than other types of drugs.

    If a person has 3 days or less before the scheduled U/A, and have tested positive on the home test, then all fat-burning activities should be curtailed until after the scheduled U/A. That way the person wont be releasing a bunch of THCA into the bloodstream, which will all end up in the urine to be detected.

    Well you clearly know a lot about all of this, and the million dollar question....what do you think my odds are of passing? How long is THC detectable?

    Cant tell you the odds of you passing. It wouldve been a different story had you tested yourself with the first void of the day. One thing I will tell you (again) is that the odds are high that your results come back as "too dilute" due to the "ton of water" and other fluids youve said youve drank on the morning of the U/A. Heres hoping that your prospective employer had taken the cheapskate route and opted for a simple 5 panel lollipop assay with no checks for creatinine and specific gravity (an increasingly rare thing these days).

    As far as detection periods, that all depends on each individual. Each persons body chemistry is different and there are too many variables to take into consideration.
    Only periodic home testing (using the first void of the day for each time) can give you that answer.
