0.5 joints/cigs smoked Cannabis (plant material)
I am a 19 year old college student currently undergoing testing for THC due to an incident which occurred several months ago. I am not one to obey authority, so I have been researching ways in which I might cheat my urine tests. To see how long THC lasts in my body, I went online and bought some test strips for about 3 bucks a piece. I then proceeded to test myself in order to find out how long THC remains in my body. Relevant information about me before I begin;

Body type: about 6ft, skinny, fast metabolism
Amount ingested: 1/4-1/2 a gram of high mids
Food ingested: I ate small meals, consisting of a ham sandwich and french fries with ketchup, two glasses of pop, and ice cream.
Water ingested: about 5-6 glasses a day
Time of previous ingestion: 2 months, no THC present in my body

Ingested marijuana, evening
T+24 hrs: positive
48 hrs: positive
72 hrs: positive
96 hrs: tested negative for THC, but the urine test indicated that it could still detect trace amounts in my system below the 50 ng/ml cutoff.
120 hrs: clear

Conclusion: Males with a body type similar to mine, who are smoking for the first time in several months, should be capable of clearing their system within 5 days under no special conditions. 4 days after ingestion one still has trace amounts in the body, but these amounts are below the cutoff line for standard tests. However, I would advise allowing oneself at least 5 days to allow oneself to be tested.
