    My winning streak continues. In about a week I'll start the urine testing with the home test kits. They seemed to accurately agree with the science of THC lingering in our systems for over a month. Previous experience suggests that for me, it's around 40 days before I start testing negative. Your mileage may vary.

    As I expected. No need to keep this discomfort "table" going. I'm past the worst in terms of withdrawal. Now the urine test results, on strips that detect 50 ng/ml or more:

    Day Result
    21 Positive
    22 Positive
    23 Positive
    24 Negative !!

    Previous experience after pushing it to the limit with daily vaping plus ingesting edibles and oil extracts (approximately 30 mg THC/ml) for 6-12 months had me testing above 50 ng/ml for 43 days after stopping. The negative result doesn't mean my body is free of THC and or it's metabolites. It just means it's dropped below the detection limit of the test strips I have. No doubt, it will be a lot longer to get rid of it completely. I think the 50 ng/ml limit is the limit used by most employers, and that's why the test strips don't go lower.

    My point? The more you take, and the longer you take it, is certainly a huge factor in getting it out of your system. I'll try another test in a few days, but experience tells me once you test negative, you won't move back into the positive again. Think about it. Even getting wiped nightly for a few months makes this crap linger in your system for well over 3 weeks. I like scientific evidence rather than guesswork, and this is the best evidence I have. Remember, there are a lot of factors involved, and everyone is different. I do hope I never relapse, and to misquote The Terminator movie line, "Weed, I WON'T be back!"

    I've been quit 3 months after 20 years of daily smoking. I've put on a lot of weight say nearly 2 stone. I hardly ate when I used weed. My diet is far better and healthier now but feeling very tubby. I'm sure I'll figure it out how to lose it again but for now am just proud of what I've achieved in quitting

    Gaining weight can be tough. It might take longer for your digestion and metabolism to sort itself out. Or, maybe you were underweight as you said you ate very little while using?

    Good luck with it!

    Stopped ingesting weed in one form or another one month ago. Woman in her early-mid 30s. I was at a normal weight before, but I'm losing it fast now - I think this month I must have lost something like close to 4kg. I find it utterly baffling because I know how to count calories, and I know how water weight works (I used to be overwheight in my past life). The math doesn't make sense to me at all, but this happens every time I go clean after long periods of smoking or vaping (I was a daily stoner).

    Still getting mostly nasty vivid dreams, but eating healthily. I get very few cravings, and go running. Ignoring hunger is easy, which is very useful for financial reasons. The really awful insomnia stopped about 10-14 days in.

    Like I said, this isn't my first time, but this time I didn't have nicotine to kick in addition to the cannabis, so it's easier than it has been on other occasions. I'd assumed the lack of desire towards food was anxiety or depression (I had quite a lot of family abuse in the first weeks, as well as other stress), but reading everyone's replies about their own massive changes in weight makes me think this will be over soon. Which is almost a shame as I like being a little leaner, but also good because I don't need to worry that I've accidentally fallen into an eating disorder without trying! 😅

    Going to use this as a chance to get into a routine where I eat even less processed foods than I used to!

    Hi Ganim,

    I lost a bunch of weight the first 4-6 weeks after quitting too. I kinda liked it as I was a bit tubby as well. I just had no appetite. That went away. I've been up and down in weight since then. I'm down about 15 lbs. since July 2020. A good thing. I guess it was the covid 19 gain.

    There are cannibinoid receptors in our digestive tract. So cannabis affects this system.

    Good luck to you!
    The old addage "You are what you eat" rings true!
