does anyone have experience how long THC takes to clear?

Chronic smokers who smoke every day can take up to 6 weeks.

im curious tho? You get tested for THC? i know i didnt. I gave up cigs a longggg time ago, but if im being honest i never gave up mary jane. I am no way recommending that you dont. Im just stating i didnt. Everyone is different.

When testing for THC (or any drug for that matter), the clinician can usually tell by the ng per ml of whole blood what your current use is. You may still show some THC in your system even after being abstinent for a month.

I live in WA State, the "Ever Green" state. we have recreational Marijuana use for those over 21. All the clinics and doctors routinely ask about your use of THC now for treatment purposes.

Thanks for the replies. Since I last visited here on my lunch hour I got a call back from the insurance person in the Drs office, and my plan does not offer any sort of weight loss treatment. It specifically excludes it, everything related to it they could possibly include, anything to help you lose weight, even if you have conditions that may be improved by losing weight, or your Dr declares medically necessary, it actually says that. BUT...I DO have coverage for medical Hair loss restoration. Too bad I'm fat and not bald.

so sorry to hear that. Is there some other insurance you can get even if you have to pay for it that will cover this. You can always cancel it after the surgery and continue to use the insurance that you now have. Just a thought.....

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
