It is not a secret for those who have undertake drug testing that within the last few years the technologies used for drug detection have significantly improved, having made plenty of old ways to trick it unreliable or not working at all. Saliva testing, introduced more widely with that development, can now appear a serious challenge for drug users. Its disadvantages for those who are not always clean are obvious.
It can be announced on a very short notice, the oral fluid sample can be collected right at the workplace, and, if unprepared, lead to a positive result and be followed by career consequences. At the same time, it is mainly focused on those who hold positions involving responsibility for public safety, such as driving vehicles etc. Saliva drug testing is normally used for detection of such kinds of drugs as cocaine, amphetamines, opioids (morphine, heroin and methadone) and cannabis. Within a short time after abuse concentration of drugs in oral fluid is higher than in other materials that can be analyzed.
Saliva testing has become quite popular due to its convenience, presumably for testing labs, employers and employees altogether, due to easiness and lesser invasiveness of taking a saliva sample (a person who gets tested should just open their mouth and have a swab swiped in there for a few seconds). However, it is obviously not so advantageous for people who use drugs from time to time and have appeared to not be ready for such testing. Still, in spite of the claim of medical professionals about accuracy of such testing compared to urine or blood, the main function of this test is to determine whether or not a person has abused drugs very recently, meaning normally up to 72 hours before taking a sample. This means that even if you are a regular user who has been smoking weed, let’s say, daily, all you have to do is stop smoking 2-3 days prior to the test to ensure high likeability of its negative result, as it cannot, unlike other tests, detect prolonged drug use.
However, even abstention from drugs just increases the likeability of passing the test, not ensuring it almost completely. Also, one cannot always hope to get notice on the upcoming saliva testing early enough to get clean for it. Therefore, without some kind of insurance drug use is not safe for employees and those seeking for a job at all. Luckily, there are a few options the market has to offer in such cases.
