    How long does THC show up in a hair follicle drug test?

I took 2 puffs of weed 8 months ago, at the end of April. One of the companies I would like to apply for a job with uses hair folicles to drug test. I have not applied there because I am afraid I will fail the drug test. How long does THC show up in a hair folicle drug test?
