How Long Does Pot Last in My System after I quit Smoking Weed

I wanted to know exactly how long it will be before I am ‘clean’ of marijuana after quitting. This means not just using, but also, having no traces of it in my body.

I discovered that every individual is different. Marijuana can stay in a persons system anywhere from 3 to 90 days!

Factors include:

  • body weight
  • metabolism
  • fluid intake
  • amount of consumption or exposure

The THC in marijuana is fat soluble, so the more you smoke, the longer it can take to flush it out completely. That being said, I will be be closer to the 90 day range due to the amount and length of time I have smoked. One day at a time, I will get clean!

    The half-life of TCH-9 metabolite is 45 days, so regardless of the amount you use, you should be clean 50 days after stopping completely, call it 2 months to be safe. If you smoke even once during that period, you are adding weeks back to your “clean clock.”

    As far as addiction goes, marijuana has no addictive substances in it. I have gone cold turkey several times over the last 15 years, and never had any withdrawal symptoms. No withdrawal=no addiction. P.S. Irritability does not count as a withdrawal symptom. Withdrawal is the physical affect on the absence of the drug in your body. The irritability is simply because you’ve smoked yourself into complacency and you’re adjusting to a new lifestyle that includes boredom. The cure: a hobby. I took up sketching again since the last time I put the pipe down (about a month ago) and now I hardly think about weed at all. Plus I’m saving about 800 a month which is always nice :smile:

    Hahah Very true Anne, I have a long way to go, and am only about 10 days in this process. My ability to vent feelings on this blog has been a huge help

    I dont think that this is as important as getting somewhere to talk about how you are feeling – regarless of how much thc is in your system.

    I also think that a day at a time might be a bit ambitious. Maybe try a minute at at time.
