There is if you test hair, but it's more expensive. I've been waiting for a fighter to counter a suspension using it.

Judging from the insane mashup of this
I consulted some specialists they told me that marijuana increases the adrenaline in the body, and also expands the lungs and increases the flow of oxygen muscles, which helps in the resistance. This, in addition to hiding the use of anabolic steroids
is either that Nedkov is entirely nuts and is making this up or he consulted specialists who are both entirely nuts and know absolutely nothing about weed, and then both of them mangled the discussion via English-as-a-second-language translation.
Because that makes about as much sense as trolldog defending Anderson.

Again, put it in the context of the rest of the statement. I work with drug intervention every day, and I've never heard of it.
