What Is A Saliva Test And How Do I Pass One?

Detection in saliva tests begins almost immediately after smoking and can be detected in the system for 12-24 hours after use.

Could A Saliva Test Detect Cannabis?

As a lifelong marijuana user, one of the biggest challenges I face is pre-employment drug testing. I have ranted before about how many types of tests unfairly target marijuana smokers so I will not get into that. My focus is specifically on saliva or spit tests. They are becoming increasingly prevalent in the workplace since they can be administered by an employer at the job site. The best thing about this test is it is very easy for marijuana smokers to pass!
Saliva (oral fluid-based) drug tests can are set up to detect use during the previous few days. Saliva tests, for the most part, are very difficult to adulterate. On-site oral based tests in enable the employer to randomly test employees, which is recognized to be the most effective type of drug screening. Testing is usually performed by employers, for either pre-employment, random, post-accident, reasonable suspicion, or return-to-duty testing. Saliva test provide results similar to the results of a blood test and is favorite for detecting on-the-job drug use or in post-accident testing.

Compare this to other common drugs:

Marijuana and hash: 12-24 hours

Cocaine: 1 day
Opiates: Up to 2-3 days
Meth and ecstasy: Up to 2 to 4 days.
Alcohol: 6-12 hours

Wow! A drug test that is easier for weed smokers to pass then it is for a meth addict!

I’ve heard cases where people can smoke the same day and still pass! As a general rule, the easiest way to pass a saliva test is to stop smoking for a day or two prior to taking the test. Be sure to brush your teeth thoroughly and use mouthwash daily to clean out the potential toxins.

Of all the drug testing solutions employers use, the saliva test is the most weed friendly and the easiest to pass. If you have anymore tips or tricks, feel free to post them here for all to read and benefit from.

I will not smoke no more today or tomorrow..and see what happens 9 am on Friday.....ill keep yall posted. I will brush and floss real good and use a lot of mouth wash between now and then too...fyi

Please keep me posted on the reaults of this i may be in the same situation soon

Damn I just smoked and I have the test at 11am 😩😩

I use Listerine breathe strips. I JUST passed ANOTHER one this way and I created this account to share this information. I stop smoking the day before and clean my mouth alot in-between. Then I pot those strips inside my cheeks the roof of my mouth and tongue. I let them dissolve then repeat that about 5 times. Then I only put a minimum amount of salvia on the swab. Usually they give it to you and you are in control of where it goes in your mouth. That's when you saturate it with the Listerine saliva. 3 times successful this way. Real talk. Have. Great day everyone. BABAAAAAYYYYY! Stay positive!!! I have no doubt that if hit with a random I could use the strips to pass this also.

I stopped smoking last night Monday and have a drug test at 9 am on Thursday. I'll let you know how that went with just two days of smoking, cleaning, and lots of listerine right after the test on Thursday

I just wanted to post that I had an incident yesterday that blew my mind! I was scheduled for a pre-employment drug screen and had my son to give me urine for the ole tuck-and-swap (which is a method I'm comfortable with and had worked for me in the past. Well, lo and behold, the company I applied for pulled a whammy on me! My First. Swab. Test. Ever. deep sigh I, obviously was thrown aback by this cunning (for me), but natural (for him) move. I am a "devoted" smoker of mid-grade cuts, ummm... for anxiety relief and to take the edge off of intense introversion... and had just smoked the morning ofthe test. I mean, I had clean pee so no worries. OH MY LAMB! He put the swab in my mouth for at least half of his lunch break and i just KNEW this was gonna be enough to nail the coffin. He friggin read of the results and BOOM! I passed? Lol WHAT?! YES! I PASSED! I don't know how but the Universe and the gods were definitely in my favor. Smh. Go figure.

If you have an interview with a company and know nothing about the interview process try googling whether or not they drug test. Note that sometimes people say they do drug test and other people say they don't. If you come across more than 1 person saying they drug test just assume they will to be prepared.
