What factors determine the time window for THC still being in your body?
- Body Mass (BMI)
- Levels of THC in your body
The natural time it takes for THC to leave your system varies depending on a variety of factors such as age, body mass, metabolism, frequency of exposure, duration of exposure, and the intensity of the cannabis consumed.
For most people, traces of THC from cannabis can take up to 4-6 weeks to naturally escape your system from the last time you used it. THC is fat-soluble, which means it is stored in your fat cells and organs, unlike other tested chemicals.
In general, the less frequently you consume food and the less body fat you have, the shorter the time it takes to cleanse. As you can expect, the more regular and intense your intake is, and the greater your body fat levels are, the more difficult it is to get THC out, which typically necessitates detoxing with a strict diet plan.
