Saliva Drug Test: What To Expect

191 comments
Ever heard of getting “drug tested”? Sure you have – either your friends complained about it as part of a hiring process for their job, someone you know had to do it as part of a probation agreement, or perhaps even you yourself have needed to provide a sample to a job or the authorities to prove that you’re drug-free. In any case, drug testing happens all the time for a number of reasons and the most common way to detect the presence of drug metabolites in the body is through urine, or a “pee test.”



However, this conventional method of drug testing can’t detect drugs for the first four hours after use, and a faster-working test has been developed to check for the recent drug intake. Did you know that it’s possible to be checked for drugs through a mouth swab test also known as saliva or oral test? It’s true – many employers opt for this type of drug screening for two reasons. First – it can be conducted directly at the job site instead of a medical center, and second – the test results can detect more recent drug use and much quicker than urine results, so the wait time is drastically lowered.

So, are you curious about this drug-detection alternative to the standard urine test? Let’s take a look at mouth swab drug tests, all that they entail, and what it could mean if you need to get one yourself:

The Procedure


saliva test procedure

The oral test is conducted by taking a look at a small amount of the saliva in your mouth. If it is conducted for a job – this happens right at the place where you work, if for legal purposes – it could happen in a legal office or at your front doorstep. Your employer, or the authorities, will have you open your mouth so they can take a sample of your saliva. This is done with a swab that usually looks like a small plastic stick with wadding at the end, and it only takes a couple of seconds.

The swab is swiped in a small part of your mouth for a few seconds and then placed into a small container for testing. It’s quick, simple, and non-invasive.

What The Test Will Do


The saliva sample you allow to be taken will then be tested for the presence of a number of drugs. The common drugs that they’ll look for are THC (marijuana), Opiates, Cocaine, Amphetamines, Methamphetamine, Ecstasy and PCP.




Medical professionals and testers have claimed that this type of test is more accurate than the urine test because it can reveal whether or not you’ve smoked, snorted, or ingested an illegal substance up to 72 hours previously. The downside of this is that it can only tell if you’ve engaged in drug use in that window. For example, if you smoke marijuana on a daily basis but stop 2-3 days prior to your mouth swab test, the results will probably come back negative. It can’t detect prolonged use or the remaining presence of a trace amounts like a urine test can.

Accuracy and Detection Times


Though the medical community has claimed saliva tests are significantly more accurate and can be conducted in a lesser amount of time, cheating the oral drug test is actually much easier than trying to get around a pee sample. What is the best way to prepare for it? Take at least 3 days off from your drug of choice and brush your teeth using toothpaste and mouthwash regularly to eliminate trace elements. Many users, by thoroughly cleaning their mouth, have actually smoked the morning of their test and still passed, but taking a few extra days is the safest way to go.

Oral fluid samples are initially analyzed using “enzyme-linked immunoassay technology,” or ELISA. This is a proven method for drug screening – tests have been shown for cocaine, opiates and methamphetamine to be about 60% more sensitive than that of urine tests. This is a strong detection method and is likely to pick up on the drug chemicals (if they’re in there). Saliva testing, though, also screens positive test results twice – which means if there’s a mistake in your drug test, they’ll go into it more deeply and probably eliminate your false positive.

To ease your mind in knowing how long a drug will be in your system to be detected by the oral swab, here’s a description of the duration each drug stays in your system after you partake:

  • Marijuana and Hash: up to 24 hours
  • Opiates: 2-3 days
  • Cocaine: 2-3 days
  • Amphetamines, Meth, Ecstasy: 2 to 4 days
  • PCP: 3 days

    1. Dilaudid, as you more than likely know, is an opiate. Yes, it will show up. Good thing is is actual drug levels are very, very inaccurate in regard to mouth swab tests. You'll should more than likely be able to pass the blame to the Norcos without the test giver sticking you for having high opiate levels, as dilaudid and Norco together will simply show you testing positive for an opiate. If anything say you took an extra Norco or two for breakthrough pain. Just don't let them think you're intentionally and regularly exceeding your doctors determined daily dosage.

  20. I am an everyday pot smoker. I smoked on the 11th of this month and had my swab on the 14th. (Today) between the days I gargled with peroxide and Listerine 6-7 times a day. I also did it this morning before the test, drank a bottle of water and ate two Listerine strips right before. Do you think I passed? (The swab stick wasn't a regular swab, it looked like a pregnancy stick and they kept it in our mouth about 5 min.)

      I smoked a cigarette right before and sucked on it a lot, which i was tols not to do, ans i also and didn't scrub my gums as much as directed but it was left in for 3 mins. Negative with opiates in system for sure.

      Took another today.. worried since I've bee on hard opiates all week. Took test out 30 seconds early, smoked cigarette right before again, and I didn't rub on gums or inside of cheek at all this time.

  35. Anyway... I've been smoking pretty lightly lately.... ( for me ) I only smoked about 2.5 grams of decent bud. Over a 10-11 day period. Smoked a few pipe hits on Thursday @ about 4pm. Got popped with a random the next morning at 9:30 am. That left me with only 17.5 hours clean. I Brushed very well in the morning with a teeth whitening, peroxide toothpaste. Then drank a cup of coffee... And a energy drink at work. Then my boss calls me about the random. I put Listerine strips in both cheeks and on my tongue........ Rubbed it into my cheeks til it burned. Then chewed on a couple sticks of sugar free spearmint gum vigorously for 10 minutes or so before the swab. My mouth got really dried out ... Not sure if it was nerves or what. Anyway it was the Intercept brand swab. Anyway that is how it went down. Sweating bullets Waiting on the results. Light smoker I hope 17.5 hours is enough.

    2. Hey smokin. I just had a similar experience. About 17 hours prior to my intercept brand test I took 3-4 hits. I am an every night smoker. I take 3-4 rips after work to calm me down. Our HR person called me to their office with no explanation as to why so I knew I was getting random tested. I keep a small travel size of alcohol based mouthwash in my desk drawer for this reason. I swished that around in my mouth to bind any traces of THC in my mouth to the alcohol. I swished for two minutes. Then on my way down I drank on my cup of coffee. Results should be in Monday it Tuesday. I took at home tests and passed after 12 hours with this method but the lab runs the enzyme immunoassay test which I don't know how it compares to the at home tests with lines that appear. I will post results when I get them. It's nerve wracking, that's for sure. All for a harmless plant!

    4. I posted May 20tg about getting popped for a random oral test having smoked 16-17 hours prior. I found out this morning I passed.
      Couple things I wil do differently next time...I would brush my lower cheek more because that is where they have you place it. I would also not rub it on my chhek/gums if they let you insert the sticks. Remember to keep good oral hygiene. Most THC in your mouth is from smoking, not via bloodstream to saliva. Also try to have at least 24 hours sober for peace of mind. Especially if you know in advance. I never know in advance which is why I try not to smoke after 7 pm.
      Hope this info helps people. This is only for THC detection, I don't do hard drugs but I know they can be detected for 2-3 days whereas THC is only really effective up to 24 hours, unless you never brush or practice good oral hygeine.

    1. It depends on the type of swab they're using. If you're being tested @ place for opioid dependence the answer is most likely yes. Generally, it seems the testing now doesn't only test for opiates as a general category but rather if the test is pos. it will specify the opioid. Examples: Methadone, Suboxone, Hydrocodone, Hydromorphone, Heroin, Oxycodone, Codeine, etc. However, not all tests do this. The swabs I get test for a lot of various classes of drugs & distinguish the exact drug(s) within that class if it comes up pos. It won't simply state Benzos, it will name which benzo. Examples: lorazepam, diazepam, clonazepam, etc. What's most concerning is that often they show false positives, it has happened to me & many others.

  55. I got a job as a security guard. I hadn't smoked pot in 3 almost 4 months and yet when I took a 3 minute saliva test I popped positive for THC. How is this possible??? I honestly don't brush my teeth that sounds gross I get it but that's the truth. Last encounter I had with or around weed was this one nightstand I had he didnt smoke that night but was a frequent pot smoker. Kissed him about 3 or 4 weeks ago but as far as me smoking it it's been almost 4 months. I took hydrocordone for back pain yesterday and yet that didn't pop I'm confused and worried for my job.

    1. I know. I keep reading and keep seeing the same stuff. People being selfish and just wanting a pep up. We NEED TO KNOW what you did, how much and when. Then WE NEED THE RESULTS. That way we could figure this out for real. Well, im thinking about getting a job where they swab. I only and mean only do high level opiates. If I do I'll let yal know the time frame and results.

    1. This is false positive result. Sometimes happens. Some foods and medications may cause it. Ask for confirmation test.

  74. Hey! I hope this helps someone...
    I am a casual pot smoker, it eases pain, and I have been in pain management (they drug test) for the past 8 months, for multiple issues (pot is not enough unfortunately).
    I only smoke the first week after my last appointment, to give me 3 weeks to clean out. I've always had urine tests, always passed. I got a saliva test last month, i just went to my appointment today, guess what? I FAILED.
    I requested the test result form. The threshold for THC was 2 ng/ ml.
    (This is extremely low, like possible contact, positive levels). They send away to a lab.
    So beware!
    I have taken the saliva "job drug tests", always fine.

  76. I have a mouth swab test coming up on Friday & I did dope today (Tuesday, but late like 1 a.m.) & the test will be early-ish (about 11 a.m. ) . If I follow advice from this website & others like brushing a lot, using mouth wash, drinking a lot of water, & not smoking the morning of the test do you all think I will pass the test? I have a lot to lose if I fail. Will probably go to jail. Please some advice will be greatly appreciated. I'm not a bad person just made some bad decisions & fuck drugs are hard to get off of. Will post my results too lol. Thanks in advance

    1. False positive results appear in about 5-10% cases. Some medications or even foods can cause it. He must demand confirmation test, not saliva, but urine or hair test.

  79. Alright I smoked a lot late Saturday night and took a break till Wednesday morning. I practice good oral hygiene every day but I'm still really nervous that I might show positive.

  89. Ok since not many post their results I'll post my experience...... I do vyvanse, smoke daily but only a bowl before bed, take subutex....... I had done maybe a half gram of coke on Saturday, 1 time party thing, informed Monday that I'd be swabbed Thursday, I did nothing except sub up until Wednesday. Brushed mouth thoroughly about 3 times a day and used mouthwash, morning of test I brushed n rinsed before test n put Altoids in my mouth. Wouldn't u know passed for everything EXCEPT coke! I was in complete shock. 2 weeks later was popped with one arpund 3pm had no time but quickly rinsed with peroxide n mouthwash n popped altoid n failed for the weed, smoked my bowl night before, the vyvance, done it that morning, and sub, did sum hour prior to test..... stopped vyvance and smoking completely......2 weeks later popped again around noon is, only had done sub for prior 2 weeks, last dose was night before, brushed mouth n used mouthwash that morning but no Altoids this time-passed everything with flying colors! Hope this helps someone! Still so baffled by positive coke test but passed for everything thing else that I do on a regular basis! N they broke it all down No false positives.

  90. I get a swab test every month form my doctor, im prescribed suboxone and xanax, so they test me to make sure im not doing any other drugs. But i do smoke weed with high levels of thc, but i smoke only a couple of times right after my doctors appointment, practice good oral hygiene and i always pass for pot, but since its for my doctor they send it to a lab for analysis cause of course I fail for what I'm prescribed. So they check to see if i have anything else in there. But i do know on the other mouth swabs that they just look for a false/ positive, if you smoke the day before it only test a small window of time between 4 to 12 hrs. But just to be on the safe side if you use the brush your teeth really well and rinse your mouth with peroxide mouth wash really well before you test method you should have no problem passing.hope this helps.

  91. I havent smoked weed in a couple weeks then today i smoked a blunt. I washed my teeth and used mouth wash. I had a random saliva drug test and they made me put the swab in my mouth for 10min. For those 10min the swab barely touched any parts of the inside of my mouth. I tried to cheat it that way. Does it work? Will even the smallest amount of saliva be enough to detect something?

  98. I’m a daily smoker and have been for a couple of decades. Discovered I was going to be given an oral swab test today (found out yesterday). Shit! Was totally prepared for a UA (Quick Fix has always worked for me). Panic mode sets in. I had right at 24 hours of abstaining from smoking. Yesterday, I brushed my teeth, gums and cheeks twice and used Listerine twice. This morning before the test, I super-brushed and used Listerine again. I then used Dr Green’s Oral Rinse (half bottle) and then headed to the test. On the way, I used the remainder of the Oral Rinse and spit it out in the parking lot of the testing place. Was given the swab within 5 minutes of arriving. The HR person insisted on talking to me while we waited for the blue dot to show and the swab ended up breaking (apparently, I had cotton mouth – LOL). Was given the second oral swab and FINALLY got the blue dot after about 5 minutes. Will find out tomorrow or the following day if I passed or not. Fingers crossed!
