I have to give a stool sample because my doctor

Patient : I have to give a stool sample because my doctor wants to rule out Chron's.. And possible see what is causing my stomache issues. I was so nervous about giving the sample, I smoked marijuana for the first time last night. I finally am able to go number 2 and want to take this opportunity to get the sample (because I don't know when my body will let me go next). However, my stomache issues are serious, and I don't want my doctor to see THC in my system and say that is the reason for my stomache issues.. Especially when this was my first time smoking. Am I okay to give my stool sample now? Will marajuana be detected in the culture? How long should I wait?
