15 Organic Ways to Detox from Weed Quickly
The drug screening landscape in the United States is beginning to change. In some states, it is, or soon will be, against the law for a company to refuse to employ someone or fire an employee solely because they tested positive for marijuana on a drug screening.
Unfortunately, though, even in liberal states such as California, you can still lose a job or fail to gain employment because you used weed on a day off. The most common drug screening is urinalysis, but some firms still use saliva tests, which means swabbing the inside of your mouth to test for THC metabolites.
From a marijuana user’s perspective, the saliva test is better because you can pass it even if you smoked weed within the last few days. With a urine test, there’s a chance the THC metabolites will remain in your system for up to a week, even longer if you’re a frequent user.
This unfortunate situation means that so-called ‘detox drinks’ remain popular. The idea is to consume these beverages with a lot of water and hope to ‘fool’ the test. If you are called in for a drug screening and are a regular cannabis user, it is unlikely that you’ll pass a urine test. As a result, you may need to take drastic action.
Otherwise, if you fancy detoxing from THC naturally and don’t have a specific timeframe, there are plenty of ways to detox organically.
Why Would I Want to Detox?
Besides ensuring you don’t get caught out by a future drug screening, perhaps you feel that marijuana is no longer having the same effect as it used to. In this case, you can take a ‘tolerance break,’ also known as a T-break.
Over time, regular cannabis users could build up a tolerance to the herb, which means it takes more weed to produce the same effects as before. Tolerance is a huge problem if you’re using marijuana for medical reasons. With a T-break, you can reverse the effects by steering clear of weed for a while.
When you detox, you cease consuming a substance to ensure the body is cleansed of all traces. When it comes to weed, for example, the goal is to flush all THC out of your system. Although the process reduces tolerance and may help you pass a drug screening, it can lead to side effects such as insomnia, decreased appetite, anxiety, headaches, irritability, and even depression.
The most ‘organic’ way to detox from THC is to avoid marijuana consumption altogether. However, it can take days, or even weeks, for the psychoactive compound to leave your system entirely. In this guide, we outline fifteen other organic detox methods to accelerate the process.
How to Detox from Weed Naturally
If you are wondering how to detox from weed naturally, there are a few options. It’s worth noting that all kinds of natural detox are not 100% effective. The detox process takes time, and results may vary depending on how much THC is in your system.
Nevertheless, the below sections cover how to detox from weed naturally in a safe way. These are often much better than potentially harmful detox drinks, and they can be just as effective when done correctly.
1 – Hot and Cold Showers
Water is arguably the most potent detox weapon at your disposal, which is why it will feature on this list more than once. Alternate hot and cold showers are uncomfortable (occasionally downright painful) at first, but once you get used to the process, you’ll wonder why you took so long to come around to the idea.
Once you’re in the shower, begin with a 60-second burst of hot water followed by 30 seconds of cold water. If the cold cycles become an issue for you, causing symptoms like hyperventilating, begin with lukewarm water and ensure it gradually gets colder as you adjust to this form of hydrotherapy.
Complete between three and five cycles of hot/cold showers each day. Eventually, you’ll grow to love the cold cycles because they’ll prove stimulating and invigorating, especially in the morning. Make sure you end with a cold cycle but do so in a warm bathroom because your body must stay warm afterward. By alternating hot and cold showers, you increase circulation, boost metabolism and immune function, and encourage lymphatic flow.
Find out if you’re positive…
Interestingly, hot showers could help ease the effects of cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome, a condition that has symptoms including vomiting, nausea, and abdominal pain.
A study by Habboushe et al., published in the Basic Clinical Pharmacology & Toxicology journal in June 2018, looked at New Yorkers who used weed at least 20 times a month.
One-third of the volunteers experienced cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome or at least the symptoms associated with the condition. These particular users reported feeling a variety of symptoms that were mysteriously relieved with the aid of hot showers. One theory posits that hot water works because it produces a sensory signal that distracts the body from its pain signals.
2 – Dry Skin Brushing
Most people have never even thought about brushing their dry skin, but it is a health and beauty tip recommended by experts. It tones the skin, opens pores to release toxins, removes dead skin cells, improves blood circulation, and reduces the appearance of cellulite. Once again, it stimulates the lymphatic system, which cleans toxins and debris from your body to help it work more efficiently.
For effective dry skin brushing, use a loofah or a natural bristle brush. One great tip is to press your fingertips on the terminus, the indentation between collarbone and neck, three times before starting to brush your skin. This process begins the flow of lymph. You should also press the groin area, rib cage, and armpits three times apiece.
Use the brush to stroke downwards into the terminus and from the chest outward towards the armpits, but stay away from the nipples as they are sensitive. Brush the abdominal area above the navel toward the armpits and below the navel toward the groin. Brush your legs upwards towards the groin and the soles of your feet and palms of your hands in small circles.
It is best to dry brush your skin twice a day, once in the morning and then again in the evening. If you only have the chance to do it once a day, do so at night to help the body detox as you sleep.
3 – Use Castor Oil Packs
Castor oil was probably first used by the ancient Egyptians some 3,500 years ago. Proponents of the substance claim that it can increase the flow of fluids through the lymphatic system and boost blood circulation. It is also claimed that castor oil has a positive impact on the nervous system while improving your immune system.
It is claimed that castor oil has a positive impact on the nervous system while improving your immune system.
One tactic is to add castor oil packs to the whole abdomen and cover the areas where the liver and colon reside beneath. Rub the oil over your skin and then cover with a towel and a hot water bottle for at least 60 minutes. It has been suggested that the hot water bottle’s heat can penetrate the intestines and liver to stimulate their contraction and encourage the release of toxins.
You can also consume a tablespoon of castor oil in the morning to perform a mini colon cleanse. Be careful when eating it, though, because overconsumption can lead to severe diarrhea.
4 – Vitamin C Flush
Also known as an ascorbate cleanse, a vitamin C flush could help remove toxins from the body. According to advocates of this method, you need to consume extremely high levels of vitamin C at regular intervals until your stool is watery. Vitamin C is believed to boost the immune system, help your body absorb minerals, aid the body in warding off infections, and protect the body from toxins.
As vitamin C is water-soluble, it does not get stored in the body, which makes it relatively safe to consume large amounts. Although the recommended daily allowance (RDA) is 60mg/d, there is a suggestion that it should be increased because of its antioxidant and health benefits.
To perform a vitamin C flush, begin on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. Dissolve up to 1.5 grams in water and consume it. A healthy person should consume 1.5 grams of vitamin C every 15 minutes. The dosage increases to 3 grams for a moderately fit person and 6 grams for unhealthy individuals. Continue until you produce watery stools. This obviously isn’t the most pleasant option, and you could suffer from severe cramps and bloating.
Although Vitamin C is often considered the star of the show, you can also use other vitamins and minerals because they also help eliminate toxins from the body and speed up the process of immune system repair. Drugs deplete all soluble vitamins in the body, especially in the early stages after abstaining. By taking a round of multivitamins, you can quickly restore the level of vitamins in your body to an average level.
Whether you have been drinking alcohol or using drugs for years, your B vitamin level will be significantly depleted. B1, B3, and B5 help turn sugar from the body into energy, while B6 and B12 help produce blood cells and keep your nervous system healthy. Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant, while calcium & magnesium can relieve anxiety and calm your central nervous system.
5 – Natural Colon Cleansing
The ancient Greeks are believed to have been the first to use colon cleansing. You can either purchase specific products or pay an expert to perform colonic irrigation. The latter involves a small tube being placed up your rectum while a low-pressure pump flushes several gallons of water through your system. The therapist may also massage your abdomen during the process. Eventually, you release the water like a regular bowel movement, and fluids and waste are removed from the body.
If this doesn’t sound appealing, you can purchase special powdered or liquid supplements to do the job.
If this doesn’t sound appealing, you can purchase special powdered or liquid supplements to do the job. Some must be taken through the rectum, while others are designed for oral consumption. Products include magnesium, enzymes, herbal teas, enemas, and laxatives. The risks of natural colon cleansing include mineral imbalance, vomiting, kidney failure, and bowel perforation.
There is quite a market for THC detox drinks to help eliminate the cannabinoid from your system. However, a colon cleanse, either with the aid of a professional or via a laxative, is more effective. A study by Sharma, Murthy, and Bharath, published in the Iranian Journal of Psychiatry in 2012, found that up to 65% of cannabis is excreted through the feces, and only 20% via the urine. Boosting your fiber intake should also help.
6 – Garlic
Unless you’re a vampire, it isn’t a bad idea to use garlic pills to help your body detox. Garlic can eliminate THC as long as you consume a reasonably large amount each day. This is the main reason why we recommend using pills rather than trying to eat lots of raw garlic!
Withdrawal from cannabis places a significant amount of stress on the metabolic system and organs. Withdrawal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea may lead to low nutrient absorption and subsequent mineral deficiencies. When you supplement detox methods with vitamins, minerals, and foods such as garlic, you help return your body to a normal state and remove toxins in the bargain.
7 – Boost Water Intake
This seems like such a simple step, but you’ll be amazed at how many people fail to consume enough water on a regular basis. Those looking to pass a drug test usually drink liters, if not gallons, of water to ‘flush’ the THC from their system, but this dilutes their urine, which appears suspiciously clear during testing.
Rather than trying to drink tons of water in a blind panic before an upcoming drug screening, commit to boosting your water intake today. It will ensure your skin has a healthy glow, decrease appetite, increase energy, and flush out toxins naturally. If you drink just 500ml of water a day more than you’re doing now, you’ll probably see a positive effect.
Begin with a large glass of water in the morning to stimulate the digestive system. Believe it or not, this simple tactic sends a message to the brain which says that you’re committed to being healthy for the day. Begin with 250ml of water per hour. Over a 12-hour period, you’ll consume three liters of water without realizing it.
8 – Epsom Salt Bath
There’s a lot more to a salt detox than dumping some table salt into your bathwater. You need to use Epsom salt because it contains minerals that draw toxins out of the body. Proponents of Epsom salt baths say they improve relaxation, help gain relief from sore muscles, and even promote healthy weight management.
These salts are named after the English town where a farmer discovered that the bitter water in his wells had a fantastic healing effect on rashes and injuries. In the 400 years since, millions of people have benefitted from the detox and relaxing properties of Epsom salts.
To create an Epsom salt bath, use two cups of the salt in a normal-sized bathtub with the water at a maximum temperature of 102 degrees Fahrenheit. Pour the salt beneath the waterspout, as this process leads to faster dissolving. Soak for up to 20 minutes.
9 – Bentonite Clay
This clay has been championed as a natural detoxing agent which can be used both externally and internally. As you know, every cell in the human body excretes waste material, which will become toxic if it builds up faster than it is discharged. Apparently, when bentonite clay is activated by water, it begins a healing process and promotes the removal of toxins from the body.
It is a ‘healing’ clay that contains a high concentration of minerals such as iron, potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium, and silica. There are several ways to use bentonite clay to detox. You can create a ‘paste’ of clay and water and apply it to your skin. Alternatively, add half a teaspoon of clay to water and drink it to improve digestion. As the clay’s effectiveness is reduced when exposed to metal, mix it with water in a glass or plastic container.
10 – Apple Cider Vinegar
One rumor circulating the Internet claims that apple cider vinegar helps you pass a drug test within a day. While it is an effective way to detox, it is not the best option as a last-minute solution. As you may know, ACV is created by crushing and squeezing apples. The liquid you get is fermented into alcohol by adding yeast and bacteria.
Acetobacter bacteria convert the alcohol into vinegar. The main component in ACV is acetic acid and is the reason why you get a sour taste. The theory about using ACV as a last-ditch attempt to pass a drug test involves mixing a spoon of it in a glass of water and drinking an additional three gallons!
Realistically, ACV won’t help you that quickly, but it is an effective means of detoxing if you have a lot more time. It naturally detoxes your urine and gradually removes the THC metabolites stored in your fat because acetic acid helps reduce body fat. It can take up to 12 weeks for ACV to take effect, which is great if you have no specific timeframe and very bad if you have a drug test later that week!
11 – Activated Charcoal
Activated charcoal has recently become very popular in health circles. It’s a form of charcoal that has a larger surface area and a negative charge. As a result, it is better utilized by the body for a variety of functions – it has become a sort of staple in the beauty industry.
Charcoal has cleansing properties, which is why it is sometimes used in hospitals for patients who have been poisoned.
Charcoal has cleansing properties, which is why it is sometimes used in hospitals for patients who have been poisoned. When ingested, the charcoal molecules bind to other chemicals with a negative charge. As a result, the toxins exit the body through the feces attached to the charcoal.
While it’s probably a bad idea to consume activated charcoal on a daily basis, it might be worth trying prior to a drug test.
12 – Tongue Scraping
Tongue scraping is an ancient Ayurvedic practice. It’s exactly what it sounds like – using an implement to scrape the residue off the tongue. You will need a specially made tongue scraper to perform this technique; it looks like a bent metal stick with a flat center to perform the scrape.
Effective tongue scraping requires you to do it in the morning. There will be a build-up of plaque, which contains toxins, including THC metabolites. While the ancient practice was not intended to pass a drug test, it does provide the other benefits of fresh breath and oral health.
Of course, tongue scraping is useless for a urinalysis. However, it may help you pass a saliva test.
13 – Grapetox
Detoxing using grapes has become somewhat of a trend recently. In the 1920s, an author called Johanna Brandt wrote The Grape Cure, suggesting that a diet of grapes cured her stomach cancer. This might be an exaggerated claim, but the idea behind the Grapetox is alive and well. In fact, most detox drinks come in grape flavor.
Can you trust that test?…
Modern scientists highly debate the grape method; it has been chiefly disproven. If you want to try it, it involves consuming only grapes, grape juice, and water for three days. Please note that side effects of this method include constipation, headaches, and dizziness.
14 – The Werewolf Diet
The Werewolf method is one of the more peculiar detox strategies. It involves timing your detox to correspond with the moon phases, which is why it is sometimes called the Moon Diet Plan.
The claim is that those following the Werewolf Diet can lose six pounds in just 24 hours. Whether this is true is debatable, but if successful, it could help you pass a drug test.
To perform this diet, you must endure a juice and water fast during the Full Moon and New Moon phases. Apparently, the body is better at detoxing during these phases.
A huge downside is that, unless your drug test is the week after the Full Moon, this probably won’t help.
15 – Cryotherapy
Athletes often undergo cryotherapy because it is supposedly good for the body in multiple ways. The process involves fat burning and sweating, two functions that are crucial to passing a drug test. Plus, cryo-chambers can reduce inflammation.
The extreme cold produced by liquid nitrogen stimulates mitochondrial function, destroying fat cells. In part, this is why it is used as a weight-loss tool.
Upon emerging from the cryo-chamber, the body is exposed to room temperature again, which causes vasodilation. This boosts metabolism, which means you start to burn fat.
In theory, cryotherapy could provide a form of rapid detox. The disadvantages are that it is not an approved method for detoxing before a drug test, and it’s very expensive.
Best Ways to Improve Your Chances to Natural THC Detox
While the above methods involve flushing the system, none of them are fully effective. What’s more, some of the quirkier methods have unpleasant side effects. You must ask yourself whether it’s worth getting sick just to perform a THC cleanse.
There are a few other ways to do a natural THC detox. The following three methods are ideal for cleansing the body and removing THC without putting yourself at risk. Plus, one have them has a 100% success rate, proving that a natural THC detox is the way to go.
1 – Abstain
This method is guaranteed to help you pass a drug test. If you don’t use marijuana, then you cannot fail a drug test. If you are in a job that has a zero-tolerance policy, where you know you will be subjected to regular testing, then it’s best to avoid cannabis altogether.
If you dabble with cannabis and you have a surprise drug test, abstain as soon as possible.
Alternatively, if you do dabble with cannabis and you have a surprise drug test, abstain as soon as possible. The sooner you stop using THC, the better the chance you have of passing a drug test. Remember, the more you use, the longer it will take for metabolites to leave your system.
2 – Exercise
Exercise can help you detox to a certain extent. Since metabolites are stored in the fat cells, fat-burning activities like cardio and HIIT may help you shed some of those toxins. It can be somewhat effective, but it’s not ideal if your drug test is happening soon. Exercise is a suitable method if you have a few weeks to detox before the test.
3 – Urinate
This is similar to the above method that involves water intake. You will expel THC metabolites in urine and feces, hence why urinalysis is the common testing method. If you have time, try and flush out as many metabolites as possible by staying hydrated.
We take a closer look…
Furthermore, make sure that the test is not your first pee of the day. Try to go to the bathroom as many times as possible before the test, as more metabolites will be expelled in the morning. Plus, try to give your sample mid-stream and don’t start peeing in the cup straight away, as mid-stream contains the fewest metabolites.
Final Thoughts on Natural Ways to Detox
There are many natural ways to detox, and they are often safer than using products like detox drinks. These organic detox methods can not only flush out metabolites but also improve your energy levels, mood, and general wellness.
There is some debate about the efficacy of dieting and other traditional detox methods – some of them are downright strange. However, methods like abstinence, exercise, and staying hydrated are somewhat effective. Whether they are successful or not, they are certainly a lot better than other suggestions like drinking bleach.
WayofLeaf encourages you not to rely solely on any of the methods from this article. They are not guaranteed to help you pass a drug screening.
THC Detox: 3 Ways to Pass a Cannabis Drug Test
Of all the intoxicants in the world, THC is one of the stickiest; it stays in the system for a long time. This is inconvenient for people who take mandated drug tests, or for those who live in places that perform roadside drug testing. Do you need to pass a drug test and want to flush cannabis out of your system? Check out these 3 detoxing methods.
Despite the fact that the world is becoming ever more cannabis-friendly, there are still some logistical hurdles for cannabis users. In some countries, it is common practice for certain professionals to take a mandatory drug test. Roadside drug testing has also become more prevalent over the years.
The classification of cannabis is still debated, and despite progress in the legalization movement, it is still considered a dangerous intoxicant by most governments. In fact, even in places where cannabis is legal, it is still taboo to drive under the influence or to test positive in the professional context. Naturally, this situation can make a patient or recreational customer’s cannabis experience difficult and less than ideal – especially if they were to test positive for cannabis.
How long does THC stay in your system?
When drug tests are performed, they are virtually never testing for THC. Rather, they are testing for a metabolite of THC that is produced in the liver: In THC’s case that is THC-COOH. This THC metabolite lives in urine and blood for much longer than THC itself. The evidence reported a THC-COOH plasma-elimination half-life of up to 12.6 d in a chronic cannabis user, which means that every 13 days, whatever amount of it present in your body will decrease by 50%.
According to a factsheet issued by the National Drug Court Institute, one-time (or very sparse) consumers can eliminate cannabis in a matter of days. If consumed more frequently, it can take longer for the body to flush out the accumulated cannabinoids: at a cut-off concentration of 50 ng/ml, an occasional user urine sample wouldn’t contain detectable cannabinoid metabolites levels 3-4 days after smoking, the detection period being up to 10 days for a chronic user.
Cannabis detection is influenced by many factors such as the potency of the cannabis itself, the frequency with which it is used and the state that your physical body is in (metabolism, body fat, and amount of physical exercise).
Your body itself is a prime factor in the equation, as THC is stored in fat cells. These fat cells progressively release THC, along with other cannabinoids, into your blood. Fat cells are a prime factor in gaining or losing weight. Although not confirmed by scientific studied, it might be theorized that when more fat cells are present in the body, more THC can be stored in that body.
How to pass a drug test in 2 days
To succeed in flushing cannabis out of your system in time for a test also depends on what kind of drug test is being administered. Most employer mandated drug tests are urine tests, whereas most roadside drug tests are saliva swabs.
For infrequent cannabis users, cannabis can be detected in urine 3 to 4 days after consumption with most urine testing facilities. Saliva swabs detect THC and its metabolites for up to 30 hours after use at most.
This window grows increasingly large the more you consume, except in the case of saliva testing, in which the frequency with which you use doesn’t really matter. This is why the best way to avoid testing positive on a drug test is to abstain from use. That’s an unlikely and unwanted solution for many consumers, so good timing and preparation are the next best solutions.
Cannabis DNA Tests: Do They Work & Are They Worth It?
There’s no sure-fire way to detox from cannabis and its metabolites rapidly, regardless of what certain detox products will tell you. There are too many factors that play a role, and most of those factors vary from person to person. However, there are ways to prepare for a drug test and reduce the chances of testing positive.
1. Detox with diet: Consume detoxifying foods and drinks
This one’s tricky. Detoxing with foods is a debatable topic altogether. Detox diets are popular, and generally have two goals: To help you lose weight, and to help you release toxins. The first goal is not the focus of this article, but the second one is.
Do detoxifying foods help you release toxins? That hasn’t been proven yet. Hopefully more research will emerge, since so many people follow these diets. Anecdotal reports do suggest some dietary changes that might help you though:
Increase your fluids intake
Fluids help dilute metabolites in urine. Metabolites are a chemical produced by the body from another chemical taken into the body, THC COOH in the case of delta-9 THC. Drug tests are designed to measure a certain amount of metabolites, and under the specified threshold, results are considered negative. This means it is not necessary to eliminate every single trace of those metabolites to pass a drug test.
However, drinking high amounts of water can result in urine with low levels of creatinine. In drug testing, urine samples should be tested for creatinine, and if creatinine is below a certain threshold (less than 4.0 mmol/L), negative results may not be valid. Many labs specialized in drug testing consider this an obvious attempt at diluting one’s urine, and it has been known to be flagged as “suspicious” (and could result in a positive test, or an invalid test result).
An alternative would be a drink that provides other elements besides its fluid nature; for instance, a natural detox drink such as cranberry juice, or green tea. If you are taking the non-organic path, several energy drinks contain minerals and/or electrolytes, which can make your urine a more ‘electrically conducting solution’.
Focus on fruits, vegetables and healthy beverages
Carbohydrates and fat are two elements found in many, many foods. For the most part, if you consume processed foods, it is nearly impossible to avoid them. In the case of detox, the more you replace processed food with healthier items such as vegetables or fruits, the more chances you have to detox faster. It’s also worth noting that fruits and vegetables are full of water, helping you with the first suggestion; hydrate yourself!
High quantities of fat in your digestive system can slow down its ability to detox. THC is fat soluble, which could suggest that increasing fat contents can trigger a brand new lifecycle for the cannabinoid.
Lemon juice / lemon water
Everybody knows a health-conscious person who drinks some lemon juice mixed with warm water (lemon water) in the mornings. This is because lemon juice increases metabolism, especially with respect to the way that the body metabolises lipids (fats) – which is exactly where cannabinoids are stored in the body. If you’ve got notice for a drug test, start consuming lemon juice in the mornings as soon as possible.
Naturopaths and herbalists often prescribe cranberry juice as a detoxification method, although there’s little scientific evidence to support this. This suggestion mainly rests on anecdotal evidence of success when it comes to THC detox. In any case, the consumption of a cranberry juice beverage lowered the number of clinical urinary tract infection (UTI) episodes in women with a recent history of UTI ; this is the main reason that cranberry juice is used in naturopathic practice.
Be warned: drinking cranberry juice makes your pee turn pink! So try not to consume cranberry juice the day before the drug test, or it might otherwise be very obvious that you’ve tried to detox.
When looking for ways to detox from THC, green tea is an option that comes up a lot. It has antioxidant qualities and is said to be very good at flushing the system from contaminants.
However, you would have to consume a lot of green tea to flush THC out of your body. One could consider consuming green tea in tablet as opposed to a green tea beverage, suggesting tablets may be an effective way to enhance plasma antioxidant capacity by green tea, but it’s best not to use it as your final resort option. It’s more of a complementary tool.
The active ingredient in those little black beans we all love to consume is caffeine, a natural diuretic. This basically means that it opens the floodgates when it comes to urine. Consuming coffee with large amounts of water and electrolytes can help to pass more liquid from the body, and hopefully that liquid contains a lot of the THC metabolites that have been trapped in your body.
And in addition to the above-mentioned suggestions, certain other detoxifying foods such as greens, garlic, and cilantro, may help as well.
2. Sweat detox: Can you sweat out THC?
Many believe that you can detoxify your system through your sweat. The skin is sometimes likened to the third kidney, especially by practitioners of natural medicine. This is because despite it going on more or less without our conscious knowledge, the skin is one of the biggest excretory organs in the whole body. This is what the principle of the sweat detox rests on. However, there are conflicting beliefs about this method of detox, with some scientists suggesting that detox through sweating is a myth.
If you want to give it a try though, participating in cardiovascular activities such as running, jogging or walking naturally helps to increase sweat production. On top of this, cardiovascular activities also help to burn fat cells, which are the number one place for THC molecules to park themselves. Alternatively, you could try spending time in a sauna to encourage sweating – although research has yet to confirm that suggestion (and what a lovely study that would be!).
3. Only true way to detox: Take a tolerance break from cannabis
Sleeping is another way your body detoxes naturally on a daily basis. Being anxious and stressed, on the other hand, slows down your body’s detoxing efforts. If you can get full night’s sleep and relax, you’re in a much better position to give your body all the tools it needs to detox naturally. You can try activities such as reading or yoga which may help you relax enough to get a restful sleep.
And finally, there’s that truth that many cannabis consumers don’t want to hear: stop consuming cannabis the moment you are notified of a drug test. A tolerance break truly is the most natural form of THC detox. Plus, you’ll be surprised how much your body may benefit from such a detox. But more importantly, giving your body the time to naturally shed any THC in the system is the best way of passing a drug test.
Be careful of store-bought “detox” products
It’s worth a word of warning about some of the detox products that may be marketed to you as a result of your Google search for the important question of THC detoxification. Yes – products exist that are made for this kind of circumstance, whereby supposedly the product will detox you just enough and for just long enough for you to pass a drug test. Most, if not all of them, are not formulated on the back of any scientific evidence, and they can even be dangerous.
These products are not fool-proof, and may result in a failed drug test or even in some adverse symptoms. So be mindful of that before trying any detox products.
There are also home drug testing kits that you can purchase to know “where you’re at” before taking the official drug test. This is highly recommended, because even though they’re not the real deal, you at least have an idea of the potential outcome before you take the test.
