Detection period of marijuana drug abuse for both single use and habitual use is about 12-24 hrs.

• Hair drug testing: This is most expensive drug testing among other types and due this, it is not used commonly. 50ng/ml for initial drug testing and 15ng/ml for confirmatory drug testing are the cutoff levels of marijuana. Detection period of marijuana is up to 90 days from the day of drug consumption for both single and habitual use of the drug.
