  1. Weed and the Swab Test?
    I smoked weed about on the 8th of this month and got a drug swab test early next week for a job that pays really good. I only smoke like once a month with my wife and that’s it. I’m not overweight and have a fast metabolism..Do I have a chance of passing the drug test?
    Remember..it’s a swab test…..I heard they detect more than a urine test but that’s what I only “heard”.

    • how do i pass a mouth swab test if i smoked it weeks ago
      Detection periods
      The following chart from LabCorp gives approximate detection periods for each substance by test type.[1] The ranges depend on amount and frequency of use, metabolic rate, body mass, age, overall health, and urine pH. For ease of use, the detection times of metabolites have been incorporated into each parent drug. For example, heroin and cocaine can only be detected for a few hours after use, but their metabolites can be detected for several days in urine. In this type of situation, we will report the (longer) detection times of the metabolites.
      •NOTE 1: Oral fluid or saliva testing results for the most part mimic that of blood. The only exception is THC. Oral fluid will likely detect THC from ingestion up to a maximum period of 18-24 hours
      •NOTE 2: Urine can not detect current drug use. It takes approximately 6-8 hours or more post-consumption for drug to be metabolized and excreted in urine. Similarly, hair requires two weeks, and sweat, seven days.

      Note: Haha, 1 month for a swab test? you’re fine. dont worry. the longest detection time story i have ever heard that was true detected use 1 week and 1 day ago, and that was from someone who would smoke 3-4 joints a day. dont worry about mouthwash, sour candy, brushing, etc… you will be fine, i promise.

      [edit] Detection periods

      The following chart from LabCorp gives approximate detection periods for each substance by test type.[1]

      The detection windows depend upon multiple factors – drug class,amount and frequency of use, metabolic rate, body mass, age, overall health, and urine pH. For ease of use, the detection times of metabolites have been incorporated into each parent drug. For example, heroin and cocaine can only be detected for a few hours after use, but their metabolites can be detected for several days in urine. In this type of situation, we will report the (longer) detection times of the metabolites.
      NOTE 1: Oral fluid or saliva testing results for the most part mimic that of blood. The only exceptions are THC and benzodiazepines. Oral fluid will likely detect THC from ingestion up to a maximum period of 6–12 hours. Low saliva:plasma ratio continues to cause difficulty in oral fluid detection of THC and benzodiazepines[2]
      NOTE 2: Rapid oral fluid products are not approved for use in workplace drug testing programs and are not FDA cleared. Using rapid oral fluid drug tests in the workplace is a violation of many state and federal laws.

  3. How much marijuana does a heavy/chronic smoker use and how long does it take to get out of his system?
    My cousin smoked marijuana for about a 3 weeks and he smoked an average of 2 or 3 hits a day off of a one hitter which gives you a small amount of Marijuana. He quit smoking on April 9th and could possibly be having a drug test on April 17th. Is he safe or not, is there a chart I can find for him that will give him a idea on how long it will take.

    • depends on the test. most of the time, it takes 30 days to get out of your system.

      If it’s a hair follicle or swab test, he doesn’t stand a chance of passing.

  4. 36wks pregnant and my doctor told me that im positive for Group-B strep, anyone have that? can it be cured?
    i also had bacterial vaginosis, whats the difference in the two?

    • OK I could have written this post with my first pregnancy. I kept having bouts of vaginosis, but once I got rid of the thongs and wore bikini undies it NEVER came back. I’d rather have a clean and fresh vagina than cute butt-floss anyday.

      I tested GBS pos with my first pregnancy, didn’t think nothing of it. I was given 2 doses of ABX in labor, and within a week we were fighting thrush and masitis. The ABX killed off the bacteria in my vagina, but it also killed off my good bacteria in my system and my son’s in HIS system. ABX are very over-used these days!

      For my second pregnancy I was more educated on MANY things about pregnancy/labor/birthing. I didn’t want to test positive again or be stuck in a bed while laboring b/c I was hooked up to IVs and such. I learned about GARLIC! Yes, the stuff you can buy at the grocery store! It has antibacterial properties and many midwives swear by it. As well has Hybiclens – a vaginal douche/wash to be used during labor.

      For my Pre GBS test I did the following:

      After a good shower and scrubbing by backside I swabbed around the back and perineum with Tea Tree Oil a natural antiseptic ointment.

      1 peeled fresh garlic clove with ends sniped inserted vaginally just before bed and removed with first morning pee

      500mg of extra vit C daily with my regular prenatal vitamin

      3 capsules of Acidophilus daily – a probiotic that puts good bacteria in your system

      ***I tested negative at 35 weeks*** so I continued with the garlic every other night or every two nights and kept the Acidophilus at 3 per day. I had a home birth and my baby is now 5.5 months old with ZERO health problems.

      The key is to make your gut umpleasant for the GBS. Stay away from sugars, high fructose corn syrup, white bread. Take in probiotics like yogurt and cheeses. Veggies like broccoli are supposed to be good too.

      You can ask the doctor to retest before you go into labor. Some won’t do it b/c once you test positive it goes on your chart and they give you ABX even if you test negative at the second test. You can refuse the antibiotics either way. I would try the above mentioned treatment, MAKE them retest you and if you come back negative then you can spare you and your baby the unneccessary drugs. YES YOU CAN OPT NOT TO TAKE THEM, you just have to sign a waiver. ***If you know your staus before birth then you can be more confident in saying yes or no to the ABX.***

      Yes, GBS infected babies can be scary, I don’t doubt that. But ABX can do bad things too.

    What is Obama hiding by not releasing all of these?

    • And we’ve never seen what he carries in his wallet. What Ann Landers and Dear Abby columns has he laminated? Who are his pictures of? Who does he have on speed dial? These things are critical!

  7. How far back does a mouth swab drug test go back?
    I know a urine sample is about 30 days. The hair sample is like 6 months. But how far does the ORAL test go?

    • A urine sample does not go back 30 days. Depending on what drug you have ingested, urine, mouth or hair samples will be able to detect it for different periods.

      Example: If you smoked Marijuana urine samples can detect from 10-90 days of using the drug.
      If you took a pain medication, like oxycodone or vicoden urine samples can detect it from 3-5 days of using the drug.

  8. What do nurses do all day?

    AKA If you have to chart, then tell me what specifically you have to chart.
