When getting drug tested, sometimes it is common to be unsure how the drug testers will examine you for the dosage of the substance. So it's best to know the types of ways that it is tested so you can effectively rid the drugs of your body.
When it comes to drug testing, there are four main ways to be tested for drug usage. These four different tests are Blood Testing, Hair Test, Saliva Test, and Urine Test. The most common drug test in the world is the Urine Test.
The urine drug test is the most common and widely used. It is also the most reliable. It can detect drugs in your urine for up to seven days after use. However, it can detect for a longer time if the test is more sophisticated. Standard tests are typically seven days.
Urine tests are the easiest to circumvent. However, most tests are deemed inconclusive if the urine is too clear. This is because they assume that you drank a lot of water to circumvent the test. To get around this, you should eat or drink things along with water to help your urine keep its color. Most common things would be orange juice, oranges, greens, vegetables.
Its actually quite simple and the name is usually self-explanatory. You give your urine to the tester. No. You're not just going to pee into their hands. For this test, you are typically asked to urinate into a cup and it will be either tested in an hour or sent to a lab
Saliva drug tests can detect the use of a drug up to three days. Detection in the saliva can happen almost instantly after use and for up to 36 hours after use for most common drugs.
Luckily, saliva testing is relatively new and isn’t proven to work 100%like the other forms of tests and as such it isn’t used as often.
This type of test is meant to detect secretions from inside the oral tissues. These secretions cannot be rinsed out by simple mouthwashes or toothpaste. They are easily circumvented however since they cannot detect use after a few days.
This kind of test is performed by using a cotton swab and rubbing it against the inside of your cheek. The cotton swab is then sent out to a lab for testing. Sometimes this test can be tested in a house instead of sending it to a lab.
Hair test..? How..?
The hair test for drugs is the most expensive and it is the hardest to circumvent. This is because drugs can be detected in your hair for up to 90 days after your last use. This type of test usually costs between $100 and $150. Because it is so expensive, most don’t use this form of test, but if you are trying to get on with a larger company they may shell out the money for a hair test.
Unfortunately, there isn’t a good way to circumvent this type of test because the drugs stay in your hair for a long time. The only true way would be to give yourself a buzz cut so that the only hair they can test would be new.
To be tested with your hair, it means that your hair is collected with the follicle attached. Your hair samples will be sent to a lab for testing, sending back results whether you are on something.
The blood test for drugs is usually done by employers after an accident or when employees are caught unawares. This is because party drugs, and especially marijuana, can only be detected in the blood for up to 24 hours in those who use the drug heavily. In someone who uses only occasionally, it can be gone from the blood within a few hours. So, this type of test is best used to detecting recent use of drugs but are hard to use and invasive.
This test is easy to circumvent if you know you will be undergoing it in advance. A way to circumvent is to not use any drugs at least 12 hours before the test but 24 hours is best to be safe
Typically for a blood test to be taken, the tester will draw a vial of blood. This blood sample will then be sent off to a lab to be tested. This type of test usually costs $100 to administer and have tested.
