As a light user, one to three "bongs" per day of marijuana, how long
would it take to get traces out of one's system?  Life insurance test coming
up soon.  Do "blood cleaners" work?  And the same for cigarettes. 
Haven't smoked in four days, and even when I do, it is two or three a
There is no answer at this time.

One to three "bongs" per day is not considered a "light user". In
fact, that's considered HEAVY USE by most clinicians or HEAVY BINGEING
when practiced only occassionally.

Dear Loomie, 

I have a feeling that you might reject bad news as an answer, so I
don't post it as an official answer, although it is one.

First of all, Tutuzdad is (as always) right. 2-3 bongs a day is
considered heavy usage. Even very heavy. And the bad news - it all
depends on physiology (mostly metabolism, since the THC clinges to
fat), but with this level fo usage, marijuana stays in your system for
four weeks, sometimes even more, after the last usage.

While there are some ways to reduce the level of THC in your urine, it
is very difficult to ffol a blood test.

Dear Loomie,
Nice name for a light user, by the way.
I have been doing pharmaco-research for a while (send me an e-mail and
I'll show you my track record of published papers).
Given your lifestyle, I think THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), that stuff
in marijuana that makes you high, will take at least 7 days before it
is not traceable (meaning below 50 ng/mL).
Allot of fitness training with sweating and lots of drinking might
help to get that stuff quicker out of you body

Good luck.

I think Tutuzdad and Politicalguru are forgetting there are different
sizes of bongs. A typical daily bong would be about a quarter of a
joint (not the way I rolled, mind you) or about one pin joint. A party
bong is another matter, and a couple of shishas a day would zonk most

They are, however, spot on that you are using waaaaay too much.

It would take at least a month to have any certainty. 1 week is not
enough. The half life is 1 week. The average amount you put into your
system is about 50ng/l (or whatever the baseline is for most testing
except gas chromography).

You can't dillute your blood like you can urine. Possibly could take
up to 3 months. I had a friend wait 3 months, and he still failed.

There may be another option for you.

There are life insurance compan ies that offer term life insurance no
exam required.

That means there are no physical exams, no doctors and no blood or urine tests.

You would want to answer all questions honestly on the exam, but some
insurers do not require you to take a medical exam to qualify for
