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.

Just passed my swab test today. I am a HEAVY smoker of BUD! I smoked about half a bowl within 10-12 hours of taking the test. I brushed my entire mouth once the night before and once the morning of, using peroxide, baking soda, normal toothpaste and walmart brand mouth wash lol. On the way to the test site, I ate 4 altoids. Once I got to the testing site, and sat in my car and I used Ultimate Gold mouth wash as the directions on the box stated. (It lasts for 1 hour). Inside, They made me swab both cheeks and under tongue. Then, I had to leave the swab in the middle of my mouth on my tongue for about 10-15 minutes. I didnt try to do anything special while it was in my mouth, I just sat there and played on my phone. When instructed to remove the swab, I did, and they said I passed! GOOD SHIT HUH! Now off to smoke lol.

I had smoked 8-9 hours before my drug test & brushed my teeth before an after I had smoked I even brushed them before they gave me the mouth swab & then they told me that they were going to call me in a few days when the results came back & I’m just really nervous about the results

1/8/19 Had a job interview today and got the job on the spot. I smoke frequently and smoked last night. I didn’t know they were going to do a drug test today so I freaked out, calmly. I asked to use the restroom and drank water and gargled water as well and spit several times. I popped a piece of Speriment gum and returned to the employers office. During the swap test I put the gum around the swab and used as a little spit as possible. I passed!!!
