    Hair folicle test for weed
    I have not smoked any weed in 2 months but cannot and think I didn't smoke any on the 3 rd month or if I did it was 3 puffs because I can't handle any more than that. Just took a hair folicle test what chance do I have of getting a positive test

    I think you're in trouble. To my knowledge, they can test back a long time, I believe it can be 6 months.

    Hair follicle tests generally cover a time span of 90 days. The hair tests are also less sensitive to marijuana (actually metabolites of) than to other drugs. While the literature is sparse, some research indicates that light and infrequent users are less likely to absorb marijuana into the hair follicle, and it is firmly established that persons with dark coarse hair are far more likely to test positive than those with light colored and fine hair.

    The following information is provided by a marketer of a hair testing system although I haven't had the opportunity to confirm this or explore the basis for the statement:

    In some cases, when the donor has used marijuana, a hair drug test, including HairConfirm, may be unable to detect the THC metabolite due to the fact that the metabolite was unable to bind with the hair shaft. This can be caused by the type/quality of the marijuana smoked/ingested, or by what it has been mixed with, e.g. tobacco. As a result, the result for marijuana may be negative. How Hair Confirm Hair Drug Testing Work

    Please let us know how it turns out.
