    Hey, there wasn't a forum for this so i figured id put it in here and the mods can move it as they wish, but how do they do teeth testing? When i got a job at Kroger, before i smoked, i had to take a drug test and they gave me a thing that looked like the top half of a tooth brush and i had to rub my gums with it and keep it between my gums and my lip for like a minute and then they sent it off to some place and said i was clean. I was just wondering how do u pass a test liek that because ive started smoking again and im going back to work there (i quit when i started smoking) and ill have to take the test again. Thanks

    From PubMed
    So the longest they could test positive using the saliva method was about 1 and a half days.

    Of course that was a single dose, and you're a chronic smoker. But you've abstained for three weeks, so you should probably be ok.

    Hey cheeba monkey,

    Thanks for your fast reply and vote of confidence. You r the only one that has given me any info at all. I guess this is soo new that people have not even heard of it. I'll let everyone know how it turns out. I may end up quiting for good till it is legal. Getting tired of cleaning up and taking tests. I t sucks that my relaxation of choice stays in the system so long. Oh well such is life. Thanks again:D

    there have been a few threads that covered saliva testing-- I am not aware of any solid means of getting false positives yet but like cheeba's quote shows-- at least it is a test for THC not the matebolites nad thus represents recent useage instead of use over the past month or so

    I had an idea that may or may not be valid. since asprin appears to cause fale negitives with urine tests, how about chewing asprin gum befor/ during a salivia test. Just a thought.

    I was thinking about that, if someone were to take aspirin pills, cut them in half, and just swish the powder around in their mouth before they take the test.

    hmph

    I just got a job at Krogers and they did a Salavia testing... they said I would go ahead and start and if I failed the test they'd have to let me go. it's been about a week and a half since I smoked any, me and a couple friends smoked 1 joint b4 that it's been 2 weeks since I smoked any. What are the chances that I passed the test, could anyone tell me???

    Second hand smoke and saliva test?

    What about second hand smoke and saliva drug testing?
    I am exposed to my boyfriend and friend smoke on a daily basis, could this affect my drug test?
    It seems like it will probably be a saliva test. I haven't smoked for about two weeks and would smoke about 3-4 times a week before that.
    Despite reading that it can only detect up to 1 day I am still freaked out.
    What's the verdict? :( Thanks!

    I did a quick google for 'saliva drug testing' and in a matter of minutes came up with this info, and it is scarry due to the lack of uniform testing cutoff levels.
    50ng/ml cutoff http://www.btnx.com/product.aspx?ProductNumber=1063
    20ng/ml cutoff (see 'product insert' link for SAL1003) http://www.cliawaived.com/saliva-tests.html
    12ng/ml cutoff (see 'product insert' link) http://www.btnx.com/product.aspx?ProductNumber=1102
    4ng/ml cutoff ( see 'product insert' link for SAL1001) http://www.cliawaived.com/saliva-tests.html
    Hope that helps, somehow. N2

    Well this is a kind of late reply to all of your posts but i recently got busted and had to go to an assessment counselor. I hadnt smoked in over a month (got busted for paraphernalia) but he told me that they can test positively for smoking up to 45 days before the test. Is that just bull**** to scare me or what?

    thats is BS, because weed is fat soluable, it goes into your fat cells, but 30 days later there are no traces so that is bs he is jsut trying to scare you

    saliva test

    Yeah I got one of these saliva tests coming. I think they are beginning to become the standard. So if anyone has any good information concerning how long pot can be detected in your saliva please let me know.
