If you take NBOMe, will it show up on a drug test?

At some time in your life, an employer, a family member or the government may ask you to take a drug test. It’s important to understand what drug tests can detect and what might happen if you fail one.

NBOMe can be tested for in hair, urine, saliva or blood. However, testing of NBOMe can be unreliable and may not be tested for in routine drug tests. Generally, it is thought that it can be found for 7 days in urine or blood, for 2–3 days in saliva and up to 90 days in hair. Whether or not it shows up on a test might be impacted by how much NBOMe you have taken, how long you have taken it for, which NBOMe drug you have taken and its purity.

If you fail a drug test, this may affect your employment, government support, court cases or official licences or registrations. At work, you may face legal consequences, especially if you have put the safety of others at risk.
