Detoxing from Weed & THC fast with Drug Testing Reviews
If you have landed on this page, for whatever reason you are likely worried that you won’t pass a drug screening test looking for marijuana, and there can be some reasons why you might be concerned.
Even if you live in a state like Colorado where it is entirely legal to enjoy the odd Wednesday night joint or have a relaxing Sunday with a freshly baked weed-infused brownie, there are still times when you will have to pass a drug test.
If you work for a company that has a no-drug policy or one that relies on federal contracts, no matter what the laws are regarding cannabis consumption in your state, you may still find yourself in the position of passing drug tests for THC.
You are probably aware that cannabis metabolites can be detected in a hair sample drug test for up to 90 days after you have last consumed weed.
Although if you have just had casual exposure – being at a party where weed was smoked for example – you will probably have no trace left after a few days.
how much do you really want to risk your career on a failed drug test?
The reason that passing marijuana drug tests can cause problems is because of how long the drug can be detected in your system.
This is because THC (the part of cannabis that causes that ‘high’) is fat soluble. This means that rather than passing immediately out in your urine, THC is stored in your fat cells.
It’s not just cannabis that is stored in your fat cells, other toxins including heavy metals, pesticides, plastics, and pollution are also hiding in your fat cells – so a detox that helps clean out your system can’t be a bad thing!
The Good, The Fat and The Ugly
We all know what fat is, many of us want to lose the fat in our body, but we actually need a certain about of fat to have a healthy body. A, D, E, K, iron, magnesium, zinc, and calcium are some of the vitamins and minerals that are vital to our health and wellbeing – and these are all stored in fat cells.
So, you want to ensure that any detox you undertake strips the unwanted toxins from your system, but that you still maintain the healthy vitamins and minerals which your body needs.
The most common type of test to detect marijuana is a hair screening test.
This test takes a sample of several strands of hair from your head, a laboratory then washes them and tests them for markers that show THC was present in the body at some stage recently.
The other most common type of test for cannabis is a urine test.
In this test you pee in a suitable container, the urine is then tested for the presence of THC – sometimes this test can return results immediately.
Passing the Test:
There are a LOT of methods presented on the internet, in forums, in channels and in real life rumors about how to pass drug tests, particularly regarding the hair drug screening test. You will encounter people who suggest a range of things from just using anti-dandruff shampoo, to shaving your head or soaking your hair in bleach.
Some of these things only don’t work; some of the suggestions can cause serious harm. If you are buying detox products you ingest, or products that are applied and promise to remove all traces of residue, make sure to looks at reviews, as some of these are very expensive and many fakes are on the market.
The only 100% way to pass a drug test is to avoid consumption or exposure to drugs. But if weed is legal where you are, and it isn’t interfering with you doing your job, it seems a bit unfair that you would be penalized for what you’re doing on the weekend, doesn’t it?
Your body is the most potent detox tool you have, that’s why we have kidneys and a liver, but there are ways to help these organs work a bit faster. Hydrating, sweating, and eating well not only help you stay healthy but help your body work the drugs out of your system a bit faster. You can support this process work a bit more quickly by using certain herbs and detox supplements.
Detoxification (detox) means a way of removing toxins from your body. Detoxes are often associated with health kicks and cleansing diets, but if you want to detox from weed and THC it will take a little more than a few days of a detox diet eating nothing but blueberries and boiled eggs (even the NBC agrees – see this.)
Although rapid detox from some drugs, such as heroin, may cause withdrawal issues, most users of marijuana don’t face such traumatic symptoms.
However, users who smoke ‘blunts’ (cannabis mixed with tobacco), may be affected by cravings associated with nicotine withdrawal.
Heavy users may find also find themselves suffering withdrawal symptoms, in much the same way that people who drink coffee or eat sugar find they suffer from headaches and irritability when they cease the habit.
Don’t Waste Your Money
The first step to passing a drug test should be to read, read and read! There is a mountain of information, and it can be hard to separate good products from bad, so look at reviews and material from reputable sources.
If you’re looking at Amazon reviews or similar sites, check out the one and two-star ratings, not just the glowing five stars – you want to know why people don’t recommend a product (and can you trust those five-star reviews?)
It’s a false economy to spend your money on a $15 product over a $50 product when the cheaper one doesn’t do anything while the more expensive one can help – but you also don’t want to waste your money on an expensive product that does nothing but turns your pee a funny color.
