2. Method of use Scientifically, the more concentrated the marijuana used is, the longer it stays in the system. For liquid marijuana, which is quite concentrated, a single dose can last up to a week before all traces of THC is removed from the system. Liquid marijuana contains a high amount of cannabinoid and can easily be overdosed on, making it last longer in the system than usual.As for smoking marijuana, it all depends on the frequency of use. It is expected that a frequent smoker will have THC lasting longer in his system than a social user. Expulsion of THC from the system for a smoker could take between two to four weeks. 3. Weight and body fat of user It has been scientifically proven that Tetrahydrocannabinol metabolites, also known as THC, have a very high affinity for fatty tissues, THC molecules adhere to the fatty tissues in the body making expulsion difficult. This simply means that a heavier person would have more difficulty expelling THC from his system than a smaller person.
