Marijuana legalization requires a new drug testing solution

welcome-screen-handheld-top_optimized

The HOUND® MARIJUANA BREATHALYZER ensures SAFETY + FAIRNESS by providing a fair breath test

Conventional marijuana tests (blood, urine, oral fluid, and hair) cannot differentiate between an individual who smoked shortly before work and therefore may be impaired versus someone who used responsibly over the weekend.

No other technology can detect only recent cannabis use. How does it work?

breath-detection-windows_optimized

The peak impairment window from marijuana has been identified by NHTSA1 and global researchers as just a few hours after use2

Oral fluid, blood, urine, and hair THC tests can all cause positive results long after impairment subsides – sometimes for an additional day or 2, but sometimes up to 3 months after use.

Identifying recent marijuana use in breath requires measuring parts per trillion, which would be like finding 1 person in the population of 142 earths combined

This level of ultra-sensitivity is necessary in order to determine whether someone used marijuana recently enough that they may be within the peak impairment window.
