This week I answer a reader question about edibles and drug tests. And, I share a brand new cannabis comfort food recipe - Chicken and Dumplings.
Do cannabis edibles show up on a drug test or do you have to smoke it? If they do show up on a drug test, how long do edibles stay in your system? Thank you.
Question #1: Do edibles how up in a drug test?
Yes, consuming edibles absolutely will show up on a drug test. The only way to use cannabis that does not show up on a drug test is with topicals that you rub on your skin (unless it is a transdermal patch, but that’s another topic). Otherwise, smoking, vaping, or eating cannabis will show up on a drug test.
Question #2: How long do edibles stay in your system?
The answer to question #2 is a bit more complex. That's because cannabis can show up in your system long, long, LONG after its effects have worn off. We are talking months after.
