Traces of cocaine can still be detected within your system three months after you last used. However, not all drug testing methods will be able to detect cocaine usage for that long.

Cocaine is a highly-addictive stimulant that is typically snorted, injected or smoked (crack cocaine). Like methamphetamine, cocaine increases the level of dopamine production in the brain.

Dopamine is a naturally-occurring chemical that is responsible  for feelings of reward, pleasure, motivation and - in large doses - euphoria.

Your body will rid itself of the substance naturally, but the time this takes will depend on your age, weight and gender. How frequently you use, and your body's natural rate of metabolism will also have an effect.

  • Urine testing can detect cocaine in a sample for up to one month after the drug was last used.
  • Blood testing is only effective for up to twenty-four hours after use.
  • Mouth swab tests can find traces of cocaine in the saliva for approximately ten days after the last dosage.
  • Hair follicle testing is used when a long-term drug history is needed. This method can find evidence of drug use for up to three months after a substance was last administered.

It really depends on your metabolism. If you have a quick metabolism, it will be out quick. It's rare if cocaine stays in someone system for more than a week. It flushes out quickly.

36-72 hours depending on the person's metabolism. To be safe, give yourself 4 to 5 days before submitting a urine sample.
