Marijuana Urine Drug Test
Marijuana Urine Drug Test
This test looks for Marijuana in a urine sample. Marijuana is made from the dried flowers of the cannabis plant. After alcohol, marijuana is the most commonly used psychotropic drug in the United States. The primary psychoactive chemical in marijuana is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). While recent years have seen the legalization of medical or recreational marijuana sale and use in some parts of the country, it remains illegal under federal law. With the growing popularity of vaping devices, marijuana use among young people has increased significantly. However, age limits of 18-21 still make it illegal for minors to purchase or use marijuana in any part of the US. Even in areas where marijuana sales have bee legalized, many employers maintain a zero-tolerance policy on any form of drug use. Marijuana testing can be useful for a variety of purposes included pre-employment, court-ordered, or personal testing.
This marijuana urine test will include an initial screen with a confirmatory test performed automatically in the event that anything is detected. Positive results will provide a numerical value for the level detected. Negative results will simply say "negative."
The detection period for marijuana in urine can vary depending on a number of factors including weight and metabolism. A significant factor is the amount and frequency of use. A one-time use will typically be detectable for up to 3 days. A person who uses marijuana frequently or in large quantities may be detectable for up 30 days or more.
A Marijuana Confirmation test which skips the initial screening and performs testing with a more sensitive cutoff level is also available. If you are looking for testing for marijuana along with other types of drugs, we have a variety of options. See our Drug Testing Category for a full selection.
Turnaround for this test is typically 1-3 business days for negative results. If confirmation testing is necessary, turnaround is typically 5-7 business days.
At this time, Request A Test does not offer DOT (Department of Transportation) certified testing.
Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.
Please note that not all lab locations are able to perform the collections for urine drug testing. When placing a testing order online you will only be able to select from lab locations that are able to perform this type of testing.
This test is intended to screen for drugs of abuse and is not appropriate for pain management or therapeutic monitoring. Customers who require pain management testing should consult their prescribing physician.
