Yes. THC can be absorbed through your skin. I have no idea if that would cause a failed drug test. I would just wear the gloves.

Here in Cali they sell topical creams with THC in it for muscle soreness.

I find it easier to collect finger hash when I trim with gloves on, also I do not like washing my hands with weird chemicals(alcohol, etc...), or super hot water and dish soap to get rid of the stickiness.

Also safer is always better.

It's absorbed far easier by eating or smoking but yes it can be absorbed slowly through skin, haven't you ever got a buzz after smearing your arms in trichomes reaching in the canopy at harvest time? I made the mistake of going in a hot shower afterwards and that really got the THC pumping through my pores!

The only thing that confuses me, is why was this a mistake?

SOTF420, your being sarcastic right? Its not possible to get high off of thc through your skin without an alcohol or other chemical buffer, those topical creams are already creams, just spiked and re-labeled for obvious reasons.so the absorbtion is there, they just add thc. Without alcohol or another type of buffer from what I know its not possible and I've rubbed up on hundreds of colas and never got a buzz from that. I think that sweet toof got you on one mayne, lol

Mar. Emery spent a lot of money wasted a couple oz's of bud and had Jody rub him down all over you feel me? But he cut bho with some other type of oil, probably just baby oil, he swore he never got high. And its Marc Emery, why would he lie and he's crazy enough to try something like that. Imagine how long it would take a crap load of bho to wear off your body, your entire body, lmfao. I'm sure he regretted that after he did it, it would have been awesome if it would get you steadily slightly high for a week or so...

you'll be fine, I was taking court ordered drug tests and handling herb all day. I passed just fine.. Wear gloves when you trim if it makes you feel better.. I'm pretty sure there has to be a fat or alcohol along with the thc in order for you to absorb it via your pores..

@Graham, if you want an insurance policy you can get this stuff at(probably) your local head shop. That's where I get it when I need it. Its called "One Drop" you take the pill 3hrs before your test drink lots of water, flush you urinary tract by pissing often, you will know when your piss is good to go because instead of being clear like it will be from the water drinking, it will go back to yellow, a very realistic yellow. I have passed over 10 felony probation drug tests, yeah I know its dumb as fuck to have smoked when the next step is prison but it happened. Anyway if you really want some man and you can't find it at your local shop ill give you the number to the place I get mine, I'm sure they will send it to you. The female that works there is very educated and knows her shit, go by what I said if you buy this because the box says something different but that is what she told me to do and it worked every time. Btw, I think you will fail if your a regular smoker, that's not enough time man, believe me, Its happened to me. I've been on probation most of my adult life, all for weed, nothing unsavory, lol

I feel I should clarify that i am only 25 years old, havent been in trouble in 3yrs though and I take added precautions and set boundaries to ensure that i dont end up in prison.

yea the only way to really get high off of a topical cream is to use a cream base that is designed to penetrate the skin. There is a type of cream used a lot in scientific research, a FOAF used to mix it with mescaline and hit the sky big time. Its been so long since he did that that he's forgotten what exactly its called....

Recently trimmed 7 lbs. and had to take a test a week later...... I passed the test.
My fingers were beyond caked and I was worried for a second.
