Topical and drug tests

Hey Dr. Davidson,

  I've been a medical patient going on 2 years this June. I have used cannabis for a herniated disk in my lumbar spine, and now I have labral tears in both of my hips (that I'll eventually need surgery on). I occasionally need to take drug tests and wanted to know, if I am using topical's, will that show in a drug test? I have read various answers on Google that are conflicting, so I wanted to see what you say. Please let me know, I very much appreciate it.

 

-Tim

  • Yes. If you use a topical with THC in it - especially if its formulated so its transdermal, not just a topical - that means there are agents that allow it to penetrate the stratum corneum of your skin more effectively - then you will certainly feel the THC and show in drug tests.
