Should you choose saliva drug tests or urine drug tests ?
Most first time testers considering a home drug test would say saliva, as it is easier to collect and less embaressing to collect, however all saliva tests will detect for a shorter period than the same urine screen (12-18 hrs in most cases where as urine detects for 3-5days)
So if a urine sample can be relied upon, it will detect drug use over a longer period and have to be repeated less frequently.
Saliva drug tests or oral fluid drug testing kits are ideal for drug testing in the workplace or clinic, where detection of individuals possibly under the influence is more the intention.
Urine dip drug tests for single drugs are also the cheapest home drug test option available
