Delta 9–THC V Carboxy–THC: Understand The Difference

Get Information On This Issue If Your Criminal Case May Depend On It

There is a huge difference between delta 9–THC and carboxy–THC.

Delta 9–THC is the compound responsible for impairment. This compound is highly unstable and breaks down into non-active metabolites called carboxy–THC. Unfortunately, carboxy–THC compound can last for months in your system and still tests positive for THC. Carboxy–THC has absolutely no impairment effect whatsoever.

The Importance Of Retesting

It's important to retest your blood sample and have it independently tested to separate those two compounds and quantify how much delta 9–THC, if any, was found in your system at the time of the drive.
