No, but the food you eat with it does. Marijuana like most other edible substances we consume does contain calories if eaten and not smoked.

How can you quickly cleanse your body of THC?

User Avatar
There is no miracle remedy that will clean marijuana from your system overnight. The only way to cleanse your system is to stop smoking until your body flushes the THC out. Regardless of what you might hear, "home remedies" like niacin, cranberry juice/pills, pickle juice, vinegar, or bleach do NOT work. Moreover, some of these "home remedies" can cause serious, often irreparable damage, and can even kill you. In massive doses, niacin can cause liver damage, or even complete liver failure. Bleach is a poison and will also put you in the hospital or even kill you. Unlike most other drugs, THC is fat-soluble: it stores itself in your fat cells. That's why drinking water won't do anything to remove it from your system, and that's why it takes such a long time to get it out of your system. Drugs like opiates or cocaine or speed stay in your bloodstream, so you can pee them out in a few days, but since THC stores itself in your fat cells, you basically have to work it off, like, exercise it off, which takes weeks, depending on your height and body weight. If you're short and skinny and you exercise a lot, you might have to stop smoking for only 2 weeks or so, but if you're large and you don't exercise, you'll have to wait a month, or even six weeks. If you want to "cleanse" your system more quickly, there are detoxifying drinks you can take. Except, they don't actually clean the THC from your system. They just mask it so it is undetectable in a drug test. Of course, this is assuming those detox drinks actually work, which may not be a safe assumption to make. I took one once, called "Herbal Clean." I passed, but I can't conclusively credit that to the drink. I also stopped smoking for 9 days prior, and I am small and slender and I work out a lot. But at the time, I had been smoking 3 to 4 times a day for several years, so it seems unlikely that I could have passed naturally. So it may have been the drink, or it may have been the 9-day abstinence, or a combination of the two. Or, it could have been a lab error. I really don't know. You can buy these at GNC or other health stores like that. Except, they're just called detoxifying drinks or something. But if you ask the salespeople, they will usually know what you're talking about, and will find it for you. Note that buying these drinks for the purpose of fooling a drug test is illegal. However, buying the drinks for any other reason is not illegal. So, do not say to the salespeople, "I need a drink to pass a drug test." Tell them, "I want a drink that will detoxify my system of drugs so I can get healthy." Or better yet, just tell them, "I want some Herbal Clean." Why you need it is none of their business. As long as you do not tell anyone that you want to pass a drug test, it is perfectly legal.

How long does marijuana stay in your system?

User Avatar
Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC can stay in a persons system from 2 to up to 90 days depending on several variables such as height, weight, physical fitness and substance usage. Occasional users would be clean within one week, a daily user can take up to one month, and a constant user can take up to almost 3 months. According to the website of Columbia University's Health Services: Marijuana itself does not "stay" in your system, but the main chemical in marijuana, THC, does. In fact, it may stay in your system forever because it is stored in fatty tissues of various organs. Despite being stored in body fat, THC is only detectable for a certain amount of time. There are many variables that determine how long THC will remain detectable in your system, including amount used, frequency, metabolism, and the concentration of the plant. Many drug tests, including urine tests, look for 9-carboxy-THC which is the by-product of your body metabolizing the THC in your fat. Marijuana Detection Times: Frequent users blood drug test (defined as someone who smokes several times per week) THC: 4-8 hours after smoking. THC by-product: 2 or more weeks after smoking. Frequent users urine drug test THC by-product: 2 weeks to a month after smoking (3 months for extremely heavy users) Infrequent users blood drug test THC: 3-4 hours after smoking THC by-product: 2-3 days after smoking. Infrequent users urine drug test THC by-product: up to 10 days after smoking. See the Discussion area for more input and stories from other Wiki s contributors. thirty days
Asked in Marijuana

Will you pass a drug test if you took one hit of weed 8 days ago and was clean for 30 days prior?

User Avatar
you will probably pass a drug test if you only took one hit of weed 8 days before the test. But that depends on how much you smoked before your 30 day break. Since the traces from the THC stores itself in the fat, it takes much longer time to detox from it than other drugs like amphetamines. So it mostly depends on how fast your metabolism is and how much you weight. There was one case of a young adult who had been smoking cannabis for 1½ year daily, then he had to take a break because of an upcoming urine drug test. He didn't smoke for 6½ weeks, and still it turned out positive on the test. This young man had a slow metabolism and was a little bit chubby. After some researching, the young man found out that he must be without weed for 7 weeks to become clean (he took another test when it had gone 7 weeks, it turned out negative). After it had finally went out of his system, he was able to smoke 0.1 gram per week and stop 7 days before another test, and it always turned out negative.

What can you do to clean your body of marijuana?

User Avatar
Cleansing your body of THC The only way to do it is letting your body flush the chemicals naturally with time; as long as you do not continue to use it, your body will eventually clean itself of drugs. Forget the quack cures, there is no way to accelerate the process. Depending on the person, this may take between a couple weeks to a couple months. You can assist it with diuretics. It all depends on your weight, metabolism, and usage of marijuana. What works for some may not work for others. Marijuana contains hundreds of chemical compounds and complexes; some get a shorter stay, some stay longer. As with any other pollution, there are the products and by-products which are processed by the liver mainly, so you can not say the marijuana exists your body. Many of the different chemicals get processed in your body and change. Usual exit for all body products is urine, breath, sweat. Be warned that some pollutants such as DDT and LSD can get stored in the body fat and accidentally releasing sometimes later into the bloodstream. Drinking water will not expedite the process. THC is fat-soluble and will not be flushed out by water. Water will dilute the urine, but not enough for a lab to miss aberrant chemicals. drink vinegar . Time, only time.

Who ever told you weed makes you constipated obviously smokes too much crack. It's not that they have to be crack to not understand the way weed effects a persons body it's just that they don't know.

Yes. As well as Colorado, Arizona, California and 11 other states here in America. Yes. Despite a flurry of debate over "weed passes" and the possibility of a "no foreigners" ban last year, the Dutch government has chosen to kick the marijuana question back to local jurisdictions, and no major change in Amsterdam's policy on marijuana coffee shops is expected. There may be fewer outlets, as the city cuts back on shops that are near schools, but foreigners will still be welcome.
Asked in Marijuana, Blood Transfusions

Can you donate plasma or blood if you smoke marijuana?

User Avatar
Actual, that's wrong! Marijuana is NOT on the list of drugs the FDA/CDC requires asked. It IS a legal prescription is several states, and those who take it that way are NOT barred from donating blood. There are very few drugs, legal or not, on the list that defers a donor. METHOD of administration is more important (i.e. sharing needles, injecting ANYTHING not prescribed or administered by a medical professional, etc.) However, DO NOT show up to donate high! Seriously, you need to be sober and not on anything not medically necessary for survival when you give blood. For your sake and the recipient. And remember, you're down 10% of your blood...your tolerance afterwards will be LOW! And hydrate before and after, you'll thank me. All blood collection facilities would treat marijuana use the same as alcohol: If donor staff can detect the smell of marijuana or alcohol, the person would not be allowed to donate at that time. This has nothing to do with intoxicants in the blood component; the amount present would have no effect on the patient. The alcohol or THC could, when combined with the loss of fluid volume and red cell mass, increase the risk of post-donation reactions such as dizziness, fainting, nausea, etc.

Yes. Any animal that metabolized THC would be affected. Any animal that had delta9-thc receptors, that is. However, insects do not have delta9-thc receptors. (And are therefore not "affected" by pot smoke. I surmise all "effects observed" are result of asphyxiation, and carbon dioxide, etc. poisoning.)

Does smoking marijuana make your hair stop growing?

User Avatar
No, smoking marijuana alone will not make your hair stop growing. This is a very controversial topic still, and research is still needed (beyond just marijuana). Marijuana is a vasodilator, so it widens blood flow and relaxes vessel walls for increased blood flow, so your blood pressure is lowered. This is where the controversy is - some will tell you that vasodilators accelerate hair loss, while others will say that it is the exact opposite and it is great for your hair. What we do know for sure is that a few factors will ultimate decide your hair loss: genetics, lifestyle (i.e. stress, health, food choices), and shampoo/conditioner usage. If you notice your hair is thin or not growing much, it is highly recommended that you use shampoo with Keratin in it. Different shampoos/conditioners can help prevent and maintain healthier hair as well.

Human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind with comment?

User Avatar
i like this question so here is a full answer to what i understand the question to be asking. some humans' minds are so open to new things and so stubborn that a simple comment can seem like a new world is approaching them, that because of what has just been said they have been pushed forward into new realities, can make a person feel like they are moving forward to new and better things, the feeling of coming out of a dark hole after being trapped for so long, however its not always a good thing because they feel so new to the world they forget most of the important bonds they share with people, begin forming new friendships with people they arent usually aligned with, therefore creating animosity in those found to be closest with, and also will quickly develop new bad habits in a short space of time. as for altering their lives, not a whole lot, mabye enough to get them into a good habit but one comment would not be enough to completely change a person unless it took them down a path of regret and frustration, these 2 things can feel so intense to a person it can make them hate everything they've done, leading them to be more attention seeking and succumb to what others think easily. another attitude altering through comment would be through over-praise. if someone is praised continuously in a way that appeals to their nature it can have the same side effect as most illegal drugs - addiction - the persons head is so swollen trying to deal with all the praise they eventually succumb to what they think others believe, your the best person in the world, this is hazardous to someone's personality and friendships, when a small person becomes too big for his boots he tries to take the bigger man's place in his shoes, problem is, their sense is directing them to step up in the ranks of their peers, they will feel very good for a time depending on the persons will power and vanity but will eventually end up showing selfishness towards those closest to them and deep contempt for those who will not acknowledge their fantasy standing for having not earned it.

Marijuana resin is the equivalent to the tar from cigarettes. It's a very dark and sticky substance. At warmer temperatures it has the consistency of glue and when cooled is more like chewed gum.

Asked in Laboratory Testing, Drug Tests, Marijuana

How long will THC be detected in urine?

User Avatar
THC is non-existent in urine, when screening for urine it is only the metabolites and byproducts of the drug that are tested for. For a frequent user, the substance may stay in the system up to 40 days after abstaining from use of cannabis or cannabis containing substances. For seldom users, the detection period is from 2-10 days. The metabolites and THC are stored in fat, so the less fat you consume and the more fat you burn, the faster the drug will decrease in content. From a drug test manufacturer: Cannabis UA testing has a sensitivity/cut-off level of 50 ng/ml (in accordance to SAMHSA standards.) Detection times for marijuana usage vary depending on the drug potency, tolerance, and health condition, fluid intake at time of test, method and frequency of marijuana use. It is usually not more than 15-20 days for chronic users and 3-5 days for occasional smokers. People who are overweight keep THC traces longer, as marijuana metabolites are fat soluble. Note that if the initial 50 ng screen shows positive, then a gas chromatography test is used to verify, and that threshold is 15 ng/mg. So while another source claims a daily user is "hot" for 7 to 30 days at 50 ng, the same person might test positive for as long as 15 weeks at 15 ng.
