The interesting thing is that drugs aren’t just in-and-out of our body. They can be detected (when in our body) by testing out four things – our breath, blood, saliva, urine or hair.
Urine test is a popular type of test for employers and law enforcement agencies (especially when random testing becomes the need of the hour).
Blood test take longer to process as compared to urine tests. But it is pretty effective in detecting alcohol (and other drugs) concentration level.
Our body needs to accurately “process” foods alcohol and other substances before they get out of our system. These include DRUGS too. It could take hours, days, or weeks for the effect of drugs to last in our system. These depends on several factors:
* The type of drug taken
* The amount of drug taken
* The frequency of drug usage
* Your overall health in general
* Your body’s metabolic rate
* Your gender (male/female)
* Your weight and height
The processing of the drugs in our system involves the participation of many organs and systems: digestive and respiratory, liver and kidneys. So it isn’t really easy. The human body is pretty unique, in every way.
How drugs get in and out of your system
It goes without saying that the person who ingested drugs (by smoking, through injection or swallowing it in pill form) have drugs enter the body system via the bloodstream. Now, how to get the drug out of your system could be your next question.
People with a VERY HIGH METABOLISM are likely to get rid of drugs faster (much faster) than those with a slow metabolism.
