Your clear. You've been clear a few weeks +. Hair folicle testing is a curious thing. Urine and saliva are used to "Bust" you. Hair folicle is more of a "what kind of habits do you have".

100 percent ๐Ÿ’ฏ grats ๐ŸŽŠ ๐ŸŽ‰! Follow the advice given you here and you will do well.

On a side note, now that you are accepted, please know you dodged a real bullet with that edible, if even a trace amount had come up in testing that would have been a career killer. Once you get your CDL you will be held to a higher standard and subjected to random testing (both federal and company), donโ€™t let a moment of weakness destroy your chances at a lucrative opportunity.

Personally I would re-evaluate my relationships and limit contact with those who could cause me to get into trouble or use or perhaps seek counseling.

I am not trying to over react , talk down to you or judge, but now especially - you canโ€™t give into temptation- seriously!

Good luck and keep us posted

Good to hear. Congrats

I recently had a potential student who was confident she would pass. She smoked for 15 years and was overweight. She "waited as long as the net said to".... Then called me crying.and hysterical. Length of time could depend on your metabolism, weight, and long term use.

Absolutely! It was just that time. I've never been a fan.

Hair follicle is only to pick up consistent use. Not going into detail, but let's just say I know from personal experience only using something prescribed once per week

Are you a doctor or scientist? Would you risk a potential career following your advice? I wouldn't.

We teach Best Practices here. If you're not going to be 100% with this you're on the wrong site.

I agree. If someone is in doubt if they will pass the test, they should pay a clinic to do a private out of pocket test first, before they take the company's test
