How long does cocaine stay in your system?

how long does cocaine stay in youre system, I heard it depends on how you use, is this true or is 48 hours the longest it stays, regardless?

Answer #1

For a large person that isn’t very active up to over 2 weeks but smoking patterns, metabolism, activeness, type of use (smoked or snorted), and longevity of use all play major factors. For a small person with a single use it could be out of your system in 4-5 days.

Answer #2

Your weight, cigarette smoking patterns, metabolism, frequency of use, type of use (smoked or snorted), activeness (amount you perspire), are all factors but for a small to average person with a single use 5 days is the norm but I’m a tall guy that is now overweight and I’ve tested positive for over 2 weeks after a single use…so it is really hard to be precise, sorry.

Answer #3

I was a chronic user about a year ago, and I used crack cocaine on a daily basis, after I was tested it become positive of course so I was put in jail, I stayed in jail for 3 weeks and was released and the following week tested again and had no use of cocaine for almost 4 weeks and still tested positive. It is really hard to determine how long it stays in your metabolite,

Answer #4


If you use cocaine once it will stay in your system for different time in different organs.

A number of factors can affect these figures, such as the strength and quantity you consume; how often you use and what other drugs you use; your tolerance; and your sex, age, health and metabolism. These factors can all interact in such a way that it is difficult to predict an accurate elimination time.

There is a bit of misinformation out there and that is cocaine is out of your system in 2-3 days. Well while that might be true LABS DON’T TEST FOR THE DRUG ITSELF. Yes, that is true, they look for the metabolite. A metabolite is something that the body produces when it ingests something, in the case of cocaine it is “benzoylecgonine” that will stay around long after the drug is gone, up to 30 days for a frequent user.

THE DRUG ITSELF can stay in your bloodstream up to 72 hours. It can stay in your urine for about 1 or up to 3 days after single use.

Habitual or chronic use can be detected in urine for up to 12 weeks depending on quantity, duration, and frequency of use.

Cocaine can stay in your hair up to about 90 days. But there are also information that cocaine can stay in your hair for about 25 years after you only take it once.
