What would you like to do?
If this is for a life insurance or health package, I believe they use quantification of saliva based cotinene (a tobacco smoke metabolite) This has a half life of 24 hours so give it a week and chemically smoking will not show up without expensive testing. There are of course other ways your doctor will be able to tell that you smoke however.

Thanks for the feedback!
detectable quantaties of cotanine may be present in the urine 2-4 days after tobacco usage.
Researchers recruited 131 smokers-37 Chinese-Americans, 40 Latinos, and 54 whites-for an analysis. Each volunteer gave a blood sample before receiving an intravenous infus…ion of nicotine.. Nicotine is cleared from the blood by liver enzymes that convert it to its metabolite cotinine. Blood analysis showed that it took an average of 152 minutes for half the injected nicotine to degrade in the blood of the Chinese-Americans in this study. Nicotine's half-life in whites and Latinos was 134 and 122 minutes, respectively.. So essentially it will take around a week or so to be close to completely gone from the system of a pack a day smoker.
Carbon Monoxide will always be detected in the blood, but after 1-2 days the level will be no different to that of a non-smoker.
Yes, it doesnt affect the blood flow, unless you swallow it.
it's chew.... why does it matteR?
This depends on what the blood test is for, but it may not matter if you use this before a blood test.
if the test is for nicotine and you take it within 3 days of last use yes. but if not then ur ok
Smoked tobacco out of a pipe that had marijuana smoked out of it can you test positive for marijuanna?
I can NOT answer the question, but I am a victim: I have NOT used any tobacco products for over 18 months, but my life insurance urine test came back positive for nicotine, …and THAT is because I am chewing NICORETTE GUM! The Life Insurance application asks if you are a TOBACCO user… It does NOT say anything about nicotine…They refused to lower my rates. Can anyone help?
No, no form of tobacco or alcohol will show up in tests typically blood tests unless they are searching for it. Which they do, when they run blood tests for surgery and insura…nce blood-tests.
More than likely, yes. Go buy a new bong.
You should not chew tobacco before a fasting blood test. The chewing tobacco raises the blood glucose and it depresses insulin secretion.
Smoked pot yesterday mixed with tobacco after about 20-25 days and have to get blood test and urine test for anesthesia for a surgery what are the risks of getting caught?
The anaesthetist wont be particularly interested and would usually not be testing you for drugs in your system. A small amount of marijuana would probably not show up in any c…ase. But, if you drink alcohol regularly and smoke marijuana regularly your body builds up a resistance to the anaesthetic drugs, including drugs for pain relief. Therefore, I recommend that you be honest and inform your anaesthetist or anaesthetic nurse of this or you may find that you wake up very uncomfortable. From your friendly anaesthetic registered nurse.
Yes. I haven't smoked cigarettes in 19 years, but my roommate does and I have nicotine in my system.
