how long does hash stay in your system?

how long does hash stay in your system?

Im starting a new job who are goin to make me do a medical in a weeks time. I smoke a few each night and am scared that the medical will show up traces of hash.. I was told theres a urine sample taken so what the hell am I goin to do? If it does show up wil I still get the job as its not class A.. is there any excuses I can use to bluff my way out of it?
Please help guys.

Afaik it can be detected in your urine about a month afterwards, but thats based on what i've heard not actual fact.

it is fat soluble and so remains in your system for ages. I also don't know about the legality of imposing a urine test on people either.

However, with this, if you sit in a very hash filled room recently then it will turn up positive so its a good plea.

i'd imagine that they'd be looking for indications of your general health rather than drug use. i.e elevated creatinine levels etc etc. dr indy some help

do metabolites of the drug show up without a specific test?also how is the test performed HPLC, mass spectrometry?

sorry for the questions but it's an interesting topic - i'm also partial to a few J's every now and again

Riverrock, my advice is ryanair. Take a day trip. If they ask say you decided to take a trip away and didnt think, say you met a friend while away and they offered you some and you didnt want to be rude to them.

90% of the traces of THC in your system come out of your anus within five days, its pretty impossible to detect in urine unless you test straight after you've smoked, take five days off and drink plenty of orange juice/some other diuretic stuff and you'll be fine... unless they take hair samples cos then they can tell exactly what you've been doing since that hair grew so you might want to shave your head too just in case....
i'm thinking that unless a load of amphetamines or something else weird in your system they probably won't say anything, mostly they take urine to make sure you aren't diabetic...

You may not believe me but if you drink about a pint of undiluted ribena it will clear it outa your system. Im just glad i didnt have to try it but a mate of mine did and he says it worked

Traces of cannabis will be in your system for about six months but unless they do a drugs test on your blood you're safe because that can't be forced on you.

I work in a drug treatment setting OP, we use urine analysis, for most people you are looking at 4 weeks. Not all medicals test for drug use and they have to inform you if they plan to IIRC.
