How to get THC & CBD out of my system

How long does it take THC to leave your system? It depends on the percentage of THC in the flower you are using. Let’s talk about the high, medium, and low THC percentages in any flower. If you are using a flower that contains a medium or high amount of THC, you could be looking at 3-5 weeks before it leaves your body ultimately. As for a low to medium amount of THC in flower, and you are using small quantities, it could be gone entirely out of your System in 5 – 12 days.

Can lots of water help pass a drug test?

The general strategy for passing urine tests is to increase your fluid intake and urine flow to dilute the concentration of drugs in the sample below the detection threshold. An hour or two before the test, you should fill your bladder with fluids – as much as you can drink. Many people wash out their kidneys with water several days in advance by drinking a lot and exercising, but there is no reason to think this is useful. In no case should you give your first urine of the morning since drug metabolites tend to build up during your sleep. While loading up on water before the test, you may also want to take a large dose (50-100 milligrams) of vitamin B2, available in B-complex multivitamins. The purpose of this is to colour your urine yellow since otherwise, you are likely to produce clear watery urine, which could cause suspicion if you are indeed drinking lots and lots of water.

Cheating a drug test

While urine dilution is helpful, it isn’t 100% reliable, especially for heavy daily users. Another tack used by some people is to tamper with the sample by adding contaminants or substituting clean urine for their own. Ethical issues aside, tampering is risky since subjects may be observed or made to disrobe beforehand, and cheating isn’t forgiven.

Contaminate the drug test

Another trick to foil the test is to spike the sample with an adulterant. This approach should be used only as a last resort since any contaminant can be chemically detected if labs take the trouble to do so. Several pollutants cause negatives on the commonly used EMIT test, but not necessarily on other tests. In an emergency, you might fool an EMIT test by adding a few drops of Visine® to the sample. Other common contaminants include detergent, bleach, salt, and the cleaning solution glutaraldehyde, but most of these are easily detected by smell or visual inspection.

Test yourself

Many drug clinics in the UK and Ireland offer urine testing for free. Home test kits are available from companies such such as Amazon or pharmacy’s. Beware: drug urine levels can fluctuate up and down during the day. Best time to test is first thing in the morning! GG
