The short answer is yes, THC-O is likely to test positive for drugs, just like traditional and THC products. The reason is simple: drug tests usually look for 11-hydroxy-THC, a metabolite of THC created by the body after consumption of THC. So, if you have been using THC-O, it is likely that you will fail a drug test. THC-O is a very potent form of THC, also known as “THC-O acetate”, which is said to be approximately three times more powerful than Delta-9 THC.
It is broken down in the body just like Delta-9 THC and its metabolites can remain in urine samples for up to 30 months. Many people enjoy the intoxicating effects and euphoria that come with using THC-O. However, if you decide to try it yourself, it is important to remember that you can always take more but you can't take less. Start small and enjoy the effects before you increase your dose and remember to detoxify if you have an upcoming drug test.
While there is currently no research to support this, it is important to consider that you are at high risk of failing a drug test if you have THC-O in your body. So, if you've been inhaling a THC-O pen and suddenly find yourself with a randomized drug test, it's time to panic.
