Cannabis drug testing

About Cannabis


Cannabis is a naturally occurring drug made from parts of the cannabis plant.
It has been used throughout history for medicinal and social purposes. The cannabis plant contains tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) as its main active ingredient.

People mix it with tobacco and smoke it like a cigarette in a ‘joint’. Some people put it in a pipe or ‘bong’ and smoke it that way. Others make tea with it or bake it in ‘hash cakes’ or cookies.

Do you test for Cannabis?

Alphabiolabs can test a subject for Cannabis use.
We test using state of the art drug testing equipment and processes to ensure that if Cannabis is present it will be detected. Also we can detect Cannabis over a period of time to show if a subject has stopped using Cannabis. For example it may have been established that they have used the drugs in the past, but now claim to have stopped.
