I might be wrong but i thought marijuana only stayed in your system for a few days if not a regular user, and a few weeks if a regular user. In which case, stop using now and in one months time you should be fine. Maybe google what the time expected to get it out of your system is?
I had a visa to china for travel and a working visa to the US and at no point have i had to have a physical??? Not sure what they would be looking for... is it a specific type of visa so you need to prove something? Otherwise maybe pull a sickie that day and go a few weeks later if you think it is too soon?

The thing is i am/was a regular user. I may just be paranoid about it all but don't want to risk it. I know we are tested for diseases as every foreigner getting a visa in china for 6+ months has to be checked so they are not bringing diseases into the country but i know in china they are very very strict on drugs, so does anyone know if i would be tested for marijuana? please help! 😊 Reply to this

Having been in the military, I know that marijuana stays in your system for 30 days, if you're a regular user. If you have until the end of the month, I don't think you have anything to worry about. On the morning of the "test", drink plenty of water. That way your "test" will be diluted and if there's any way there's still something left in your specimen, it'll be so diluted it won't register.
Hope this helps and let me know! Reply to this

Also, not sure if you're in the U. S. or not, but they have tests in Walgreen's. They're typically for parents wanting to test their middle/high school students for drug use.
The test costs about $15. Reply to this

As a nurse I can give you a bit of a medical perspective. You should be good in 3 to 4 weeks depending on your height and weight.

THC is the compound you are trying to release from your body and it is fat soluble. That means your body stores it in fat. Drinking fluids will make you feel like you are doing something but won't help get the THC out of your system.

Exercise will help. The majority of the THC will be out of your system in a few days but can linger about a month. Take a deep breath and you will be fine.
