The drug test measures the presence of degradation products of the active substance in synthetic cannabis (K2) in a urine sample.
The sensitivity of the test to the metabolite excreted in urine is 25 ng/ml. The substance is detectable after a test on a urine sample after smoking a K2 cigarette, from few hours to the next three days.
Synthetic cannabis K2 is an herbal and chemical product that acts like marijuana. It’s also known as spice. It has been shown to aggravate previously stable psychiatric injuries and trigger chronic disorders in people with a family history of mental illness. Its metabolite in the urine can be found after the smoking of the K2 cigarette from a few hours to the next 3 days. The actual content of Spice preparations may not even be told by manufacturers. There is also a high degree of variability in spice preparations.
Drug test manual
The head of the test strip marked with arrows is immersed in the urine or drink sample to a depth of about one centimeter (the maximum limit is marked on the strip) and held there for 15-20 seconds. Then the strip is lifted off and placed horizontally. The result is read after 5 minutes (no more than 10 minutes).
- Two lines (C and T) is a negative result, i.e. it indicates that there is no volume of K2 metabolite to be observed in the sample.
- The C-line alone (i.e. the absence of a T line) indicates that the sample contains K2.
- In the absence of a C-line, the test has failed and shall not be interpreted in any way
