Click HereCould A Saliva Test Detect Cannabis?

As a lifelong marijuana user, one of the biggest challenges I face is pre-employment drug testing. I have ranted before about how many types of tests unfairly target marijuana smokers so I will not get into that. My focus is specifically on saliva or spit tests. They are becoming increasingly prevalent in the workplace since they can be administered by an employer at the job site. The best thing about this test is it is very easy for marijuana smokers to pass!

Saliva (oral fluid-based) drug tests can are set up to detect use during the previous few days. Saliva tests, for the most part, are very difficult to adulterate. On-site oral based tests in enable the employer to randomly test employees, which is recognized to be the most effective type of drug screening. Testing is usually performed by employers, for either pre-employment, random, post-accident, reasonable suspicion, or return-to-duty testing. Saliva test provide results similar to the results of a blood test and is favorite for detecting on-the-job drug use or in post-accident testing.

Detection in saliva tests begins almost immediately after smoking and can be detected in the system for 12-24 hours after use. Compare this to other common drugs:

Marijuana and hash: 12-24 hours

Cocaine: 1 day
Opiates: Up to 2-3 days
Meth and ecstasy: Up to 2 to 4 days.
Alcohol: 6-12 hours

Wow! A drug test that is easier for weed smokers to pass then it is for a meth addict!

I’ve heard cases where people can smoke the same day and still pass! As a general rule, the easiest way to pass a saliva test is to stop smoking for a day or two prior to taking the test. Be sure to brush your teeth thoroughly and use mouthwash daily to clean out the potential toxins.

Of all the drug testing solutions employers use, the saliva test is the most weed friendly and the easiest to pass. If you have anymore tips or tricks, feel free to post them here for all to read and benefit from.

    ok so in reddit code, TIFU. possibly.

    So I’m putting this on here and ill try and give updates of what happens going forward with this situation I’m now in. my roomates work nights and smoke when they get off work, and i had smoked about 6:30-7:00 AM, as i thought i was going to use fake piss anyways. I went get a job at a warehouse and i was armed with said fake piss in a bottle. I get there and they tell me that theres a swab drug test. SO, i got to my car and told them i forgot my cell phone, where i drank and swigged a whole bunch of tea. when i come back in, they said don’t drink any liquids or candy or gum within ten minutes of the test, so somewhere around 8-10 minutes before we all went in the room (it was a group) to test ourselves, i spat a bunch and drank some water in the bathroom sink, no one else was in there nor did anyone see me in my car. Anyways, so we get the test, and i kinda got freaked out, and i put it backwards as much as i could, without the lady seeing, and clamped it in between my teeth instead of putting it in my cheek. it didn’t get really saturated with my saliva, and after ten minutes we had to put them into a tube with liquid. So she goes on to say don’t touch the liquid inside these tubes at it will void the sample, so I put my finger in it, trying to sabotage the whole thing so i can go home and quit for a few days, take the test again when they call me and say it was inconclusive. I’m wagering that A) swigging the water and tea right before, not fully sticking it in my cheek, and the fact i put my finger into the liquid, i think I’m just going to have to go back and retest, but again, ill update and let you guys know, maybe i passed?! who knows. !?
