Vaping THC and Nicotine Test
Vaping THC and Nicotine Test
The vaping drug panel looks for metabolites of both nicotine and marijuana in a urine sample. The use of e-cigarettes and other vaping products such as Juul has become increasingly popular since they were introduced in the early 2000s. While vaping is primarily marketed for use with nicotine products, there has been a rise in the use of other drugs, especially marijuana.
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.
While not illegal, nicotine is still highly addictive and has been shown to contribute to a number of long-term health complications. Nicotine use can contribute to cancer, emphysema, loss of circulation, increased risk of blood clots, arthritis, and diabetes. Many health insurance providers require proof that a person is nicotine-free for plan approval.
Urine drug testing can be ordered for a variety of reasons. Parents concerned about the health of their children can order testing to help ensure they are not smoking or vaping. Companies can test their employees as part of a workplace health initiative or as part of pre-employment requirements. Testing can also be ordered by anyone for work, school, legal, or personal reasons.
Testing is typically ordered when someone is suspected of using nicotine and/or marihuana either through the use of a vaping device or other methods. These tests include an initial screening followed by confirmation testing at no additional cost if anything is detected. Positive results will provide a numerical value for the level detected. Negative results will simply say "negative." Urine testing is not intended to detect second-hand exposure.
For more testing options, please see our Drug Testing Category.
Turnaround time for this test is typically 1-3 business days for negative results. If confirmation testing is necessary, results typically take 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 which 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.
