Concentration, time to appearance and duration of detection of cannabinoids in the blood after smoking

THC is fat soluble and readily spreads in the innervated tissues of the brain; it reaches a peak in the blood plasma in less than nine minutes and falls to approximately 5% after one hour.

The body is slow to eliminate THC and inactive THC metabolites can be detected in urine up to 27 days after use in the case of regular users.

  • L'élimination du THC par l'organisme est lente et les métabolites inactifs du THC peuvent être détectés dans les urines jusqu'à 27 jours après consommation dans le cas des usagers réguliers, il atteint un pic dans le plasma sanguin en moins de 9 minutes et il n'en reste qu'environ 5% après une heure.
