i was wondering how long THC, or tetra hydra cananbanoid stays in the hair. I heard once it stays for 7 months, then i heard it stays for 7 years!
i am confused, can someone give me some closure?
this new job im getting requires a hair test and a guy that works there said they take armpit hair. blink.gif

Hair Testing
Cannabis use is detectable with hair tests and is generally included in the standard hair test. Hair tests generally take the most recent 1.5 inches of growth and use those for testing. That provides a detection period of approximately 90 days. If an individual's hair is shorter than 1.5 inches, this detection period will be shorter.

It depends on the hair test also. They have some hair test that can tell if you have smoked about 7 years ago (the FBI uses this test when you apply). They can also do a fingernail test wich was not listed on that site that goes back for quite some time.

While I don't have an answer, I do have bit of info. Unlike your regular hair your underarm hair doesn't normaly grow nearly as quickly or as long as regular hair. Thier most likely using that because it has a time sample back further than 90 days. The way I had understood the nature of drug screens using hair and fingernail was that the offending material was intrigrated into the manufactuing of the hair for that day/week/month the person was using it, with a normaly hair screening it is only as good as the length of the hair(since it's layered sample of your chemical chronology). In the case of body hair, since it grows at a slower rate it would contain more of your body's chemical history(abreviated since it less of a sample).
I could be completely wrong since I don't directly deal with HR nor any offending chemicals, so I have not placed that great deal of research into the subject.

Yeah my job had a hair test too.

They can go all the way back to a year... but its not likely due to cost. The one you will get will be either 30, 60, or 90 days. Depending on what the company wants (It will say how far back on your papers at the testing sight, so just take a look).

I feel for you bro.
For urine tests, I know This Stuff definitely works. They have something else for HAIR. Not sure if that works but it's better than nothing. Not sure how much time you have but you could order a home test and find out for yourself. I know one guy that had his doctor give him a drug test to make sure he was clean before he started work. Hope everything works out okay.
