The Ultimate Dollar Store Deal: How Accurate Is a $1 Marijuana At-Home Drug Test? By: Pamela Dyer

Last week I attended a women’s networking event co-hosted by Leafly. Amid the autum-themed food spread and the decorative gourds were two marijuana drug test boxes that had been purchased at a dollar store near the University of Washington campus and were being displayed quite cheekily considering we were all attending a cannabis industry mixer. I wanted to perform a little experiment to see how accurate (if at all) these dollar store gems were, so Leafly kindly let me take both tests home so I could try them out.

drug testI was curious to see if this “Made in Mexico” test would be accurate and easy to use. As a medicinal cannabis patient, I knew I should test positive for THC. However, I needed a “control” group so I wanted take one test myself and use the other test on somebody who I knew would not have THC in his or her system (which would negate the possibility of the test defaulting to “positive” as a gag regardless of whether or not the subject is a cannabis consumer).

Believe it or not, it turns out few people will volunteer to pee in a cup, even for “science.” I had to hunt a little but eventually I found the perfect candidate. My test subject was a new mom who has not consumed cannabis in years and was guaranteed to have no THC in her system.

I opened the box to find it only contained one simple little stick. You have to supply your own container to collect the urine like some sort of savage. A dollar won’t even get you a plastic container? Lame. The directions are printed on the inside of the box and while the pictures look different than the stick that was supplied, it was easy enough to figure out how to use it as directed.

As expected, my test was positive, an outcome I hoped for (the irony of taking a drug test and hoping it would be positive was not lost on me). My friend’s test was invalid, making it a negative result.

This little test seems to detect THC in your urine but may read invalid or inconclusive when there is no THC in the urine. Overall, I think the At Home Drug Test Marijuana (the title really rolls off the tongue) is a total bargain if you happen to need to know this kind of information in 5 minutes, or if you’re bored on a Friday night and aren’t above urinating in a glass for entertainment’s sake. THC and CBD What is the difference?

CBD Oil as an alternative:

CBD is a Natural pain relief and anti-inflammatory. People commonly use prescription or over-the-counter drugs to relieve pain and stiffness, including chronic pain, but CBD Oil offers a more natural way to lower your pain. Researchers believe the non-psychoactive compounds in marijuana, including CBD, could be a new treatment for chronic pain. Those of us who live with Chronic Pain know how effective it is in relieving pain without all the negative side effects. CBD is presently used for some conditions that cause chronic pain, like multiple sclerosis and fibromyalgia. CBD Oil Will it help you? What is it? Is it Legal in my State?

CAUTION!! If you have a job or other circumstance that requires you to drug test use CBD Oil with little to no THC! THC will show on a drug test. This CBD Oil however, contains very low THC!! This makes it the perfect choice for those who want to give it try to see if it’s healing benefits work for them (I’ve never had anyone that did not see positive benefits), without the risk of showing positive for Marijuana on a drug screen. CBD Oil Testimonial (the people who actually take it tell you what it does)
