Smoked weed 5 months ago. Will it be detected by a hair drug test?

If I smoked weed for the first and last time in November and have a hair drug test in April, which will be almost 5 months exactly from the day, will I pass my hair drug test? Some background is that I am african american, very high metabolism , workout everyday, and I also cut my hair to a shorter length approximately 30 days after the one day that I smoked in November.

Welcome to HCM

In commonly used tests for drug testing the drug can be usually detected for up to one month of last drug use in hair test. As you used the drug about 5 month back and also you work out a lot along with you have good metabolism so as per my opinion there are very rare chances of detection of the drug.

Hi there, thanks for asking. If have smoked just once 5 months ago, that would be too far to detect the substance in your hair. The fact that you are fast metaboliser also helps not to be detected. Best wishes with your career.
