How Long Does Delta-8 Stay In Your System?
Delta 8 THC, a product derived from hemp, is a new product that’s on the market. It is legal because it is made from hemp, contains less than 0.3% delta9 THC, and can be purchased online.
This minor compound has a lot of personality. Its milder, but still exciting, psychotropic effects are even more impressive.
You can still get a unique high from hemp products even if you live in an illegal state.
If delta 8 THC makes you high, there are some questions you might ask yourself.
How long does delta8 stay in your system for?
Is delta 8 detected in a drug test?
Are edibles more likely to stay in your body than other delivery methods?
What amount of delta 8 THC should you take?
Is there a way to get rid of delta 8 faster?
These are valid questions and we have answers to them based on current information. Let’s get to it.
Is Delta 8 detected on a drug test?
This is a huge question for anyone who has to pass drug tests in order to work or for other reasons.
The short answer to that question is yes. You could fail an impending drug test depending on what test you are taking.
This is because certain drug tests, such as a generic drug test or a urine drug test, and even some saliva tests, may detect remaining THC metabolites.
While delta 8 THC metabolites are legal, unlike delta 9 THC metabolites, it is still a type of tetrahydrocannabinol. Some tests might detect them as the exact same THC metabolites.
Drug tests can be used to test for THC metabolites, also known as THC-COOH.
The presence of tetrahydrocannabinol will not automatically result in a positive test if you have any THC-COOH blood or urine tests. If your delta 8 THC metabolites exceed a certain threshold value, it may still show up in drug tests.
How Long Does Delta 8 Stay In Your System?
There are a few factors that affect how long delta 8 stays in your system and what it will show up in a drug screen. The metabolites are usually detected in urine tests within a few days to weeks. This depends on the cut-off value and other factors that affect your body.
This answers the question: Does delta 8 show up on a urine test? It can, but it varies in time.
If you are a regular delta 8 user and there is a drug test coming up, it is possible that metabolites may show up in your urine drug test for a longer period of time. This is regardless if it is from the blood test or hair follicle tests.
A Mayo Clinic Proceedings review, published in 2017, found that THC-COOH can be detected for as long as three days by occasional users, five to seven days by moderate users, and 10 to fifteen days for daily users.
If you are an “avid” user, who consumes high levels of chemical compounds multiplex per day for long periods of time over a prolonged period of time, drug tests could detect metabolites up to 30 days after your last consumption.
The amount of delta 8 THC in your system will depend on you and factors like body fat, type of drug testing (e.g. urine, hair follicle, blood) and different ingestion methods. These factors can all affect how the drug test detects THC.
