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.

    Hey guys I recently posted on here pre drug test and I promised that I would post a post-drug test post so here it is. I had a Silvia drug test that I took on Saturday 21st of May. I was an avid smoker everyday until cinco de mayo when i burned my last tree, so a little over 2 weeks bud-free before I took the test. I passed the Silvia test for Publix and my preparation was drinking a lot of water within the last week leading up to the test. I read somewhere that if you drink a gallon of water the day of the test it helps dilute the results if you need to postpone the drug test (cause maybe they will let you come back and take it cause the results come back as diluted.) I did this shit and passed and now enjoying a fat bleezy to myself and my gf that I’m about to go have some fun with. good luck to all on future tests, and stay blazing.

    I just smoked saturday night. It wasnt much just a few hits. But i went in monday around 3pm and a couple hours after being at work they called me in for a random saliva drug test. Do you think i will pass or should i be worried? Cause it was only a day in a half between the time i smoked and the time i took the test.

    Being only 15, this is really great news! I just got back from my saliva test for my new job and I haven’t smoked in over a week. I was worried to death that I would test positive. This sure would be a shitty way for my mother to find out i smoked pot…
