THC is a lipid-soluble polypeptide, meaning it is stored in fat cells. Your THC can drop as you stop smoking and your body metabolizes it into THC-OH and THC-COOH. However afterwards if you burn off more of the THC embued fat cells, the THC in these cells is released into your bloodstream causing a spike in the levels present. It is possible to always have some amount of THC in your body, even years after you quit smoking. Drugs tests usually only test for levels of 50 nanograms per milliliter (50ng/ml) so as long as your below this even Gas Chromatography Mass Spectometry (GCMS tests) cannot detect these amounts.

Can your THC levels continue to go up after you quit smoking?

rarely does your THC level rise if you have quit smoking but THC in the body is stored within fat cells so it may take a long while to get rid or lower the level of THC that is detected in your body and this level rarely but can go up if you are around the second hand smoke of other smokers Exception: Personal experience: My brother has several health issues, including being overweight. He stopped smoking 67 days ago. His THC levels have seriously fluctuated in these 67 days. Because of this fluctuation, he was incarcerated this morning. I know he has not smoked or been in the presence of smoke. He is a single parent and has custody of his son. He is overweight and because THC is stored in your fat cells, when he works outside and sweats alot-- his THC levels were higher. The pre-trial representative administered urine tests weekly. I believe because of the possibility of THC levels to fluctuate to this extreme; while waiting on the THC to completely leave your system, many people are being wrongly accused and incarcerated. I am taking drug test three times a week.I've 25 and had been smokeing since i was 16. I am 200lbs. I have not smoked in 35 days. My levels are going up and down too! DSS will take my child form me because my levels are not consistantly going down.

Will eating a cannabis leaf show up on urinal drugs test?

A urinal drug test is a anti-body based test that will filter your urine to determine the presence of the tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. Regardless of how high you may or may not be as a result of consumption, any significant levels of THC will make a urinal drug test turn up positive. So yes, it will show up. It could potentially show up in even higher levels, considering that the THC will not have been filtered through the lungs.
