Saliva testing detects what is known as the “parent” drug, the psychoactive component which gives the “high” from the drug.  The accuracy of the saliva test is dependent upon the quality of the test device. (Australian Standard AS4760 recommends devices which have an adequacy indicator and an instrument to interpret the result.)
