In general, THC, the psychoactive component of marijuana, can be detected for up to 90 days in the hair, between 1 day and a month or more in the urine (depending on how often the person uses it), up to 24 hours in the saliva and up to 12 hours in the blood.
THC-Ois a metabolite of THC and can remain in the body for up to 12 hours. However, it is not detectable in most drug tests. We do not recommend using any type of THC product before a drug test or in any situation where the use of THC-O is illegal.
However, when it comes to THC compounds, such as THC-O acetate, people will wonder how long these psychoactives last in the body before they are completely eliminated. The second phase of metabolism occurs more slowly, although the overall half-life of THC-O is still quite short. However, if your employer performs specific tests to detect you, THC-O may show up on a drug test. A specific liver enzyme called CYP3A4 is needed to break down THC-O and other THC-derived products after consumption.
If you don't have to worry about a drug test, THC-O is three times more potent than THC in marijuana. It's important to note that half-life refers to how long THC-O remains active in the body and not necessarily how long it is detectable. This means that the amount of time THC-O remains detectable in the body varies depending on the type of drug screening you undergo. If you're worried about whether or not THC-O will show up on a drug test, there are a few things you can do to make sure it doesn't show up.
We don't have much data to help us better understand how this works specifically for THC-O, but it's believed to work in the same way as other cannabinoids. While THC-O is currently legal under federal regulations, the results of failed tests will appear the same way as if you didn't approve Delta-9, and it can be difficult to prove what type of THC product you used. Some THC-O products do not provide the amount of cannabinoid advertised, for example, products that are expired or products manufactured with inferior extraction methods that damage the compound. THC-O acetate usually stays in the body for approximately 2 to 25 days, taking into account the many factors that can influence the amount of THC-O that has accumulated in the body, such as the frequency of use, metabolism and the last time it was consumed.
Although THC-O is the non-psychoactive form of THC, it will still show up on most standard drug tests as a positive result for marijuana.
