Hi Pat,
Welcome to HCM.
THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is metabolized mainly in the liver. The metabolized ingredients are still psychoactive and are removed from body through stools ( 55 %) and the remaing through sweat glands and urine.
The psychoactive action persists till majority of the metabolites are excreted.
The metabolites can take nearly a week to be eradicated from the body system and during this period it can be detected by drug tests.
A piece of advise : DO NOT TAKE ANY PSYCHOACTIVE DRUGS WITHOUT MEDICAL ADVISE, to safeguard your health.
Wish you all the best.

depending on the amount of pot you smoke, say for instance you smoked a fat bowl last night and your intake of water were put at 13 full glasses in over a 9hr time frame and your skinny and you dont smoke but only once every two months you should be fine after 3 days but relitively speaking you should still drink more water than you would normaly, or just not smoke lol:)

Hello, welcome to Healthcaremagic. THC usually stays in your body for about 4 to 7 days for non heavy users but can be positive for even upto 30 days in case of heavy users. Wish you good health.
