What Are The Absolute Best Ways To Naturally Detox From THC?

por albert john (2019-01-11)

Marijuana is becoming more and more widely accepted throughout the world. In fact, the substance is now recreationally legal in a number of states. Users and freely buy and consume marijuana for recreational purposes in the comfort of their own homes.

Of course, that doesn’t make a big difference to your employer. If you get popped with a random test and show up with THC in your system you are still going to get fired.

If you don’t want to use detox products, such as: detox pills and drinks (more info here), your only chance is flushing toxins out of your system naturally. So, here’s what you need to know about naturally detoxing THC out of your system if you have a test coming up.

How Much THC Is In The Body?

Your detox success and rate is going to come down to several different underlying factors.

• How Often You Using – The most important factor to consider is how often you are using. Are you just using once a day? Are you using more than once a week? Regular and frequent use it going to make it harder to detox because the metabolites will have built up in the fatty tissue.
• Metabolism – Everyone has a different metabolism rate and it usually varies based on genetics, height, weight, sex, and level of physical activity. The faster your metabolism the easier it will be to detox your body.
• Body Fat – Since THC metabolites are stored in the fat tissues anyone with a higher percentage of body fat is going to have a larger storage capacity.
• Exercise – THC metabolites are stored in the fat cells where they will slowly diffuse back into the blood over time. Since exercising elevates blood levels and breaks down fatty tissue it could potentially release dormant metabolites from the fatty tissue. Simply put, exercise could potentially increase the rate at which your body releases stored metabolites.
• The Potency Of The Strain – Higher strains of marijuana are going to contain higher levels of THC, which means it will put more THC metabolites in the system.

How Long Does THC Stay In The System?

When it comes to determining how long THC will stay in your system it really comes down to the method in which you are being tested.

• Urine Test – Urine tests are without a doubt the most common type of drug test out there because they are cheap and effective. However, these tests do not actually test for THC in the body. Instead, they search for the metabolite THC-COOH, which is a byproduct of THC consumption. This is bad because THC-COOH has a much longer half-life and can be detected within the urine for months after the original consumption date. A one-time user could test positive 1 to 7 days after use. Whereas a regular user could test positive for over 90 days after use.
• Blood Tests – Blood tests actually do test for the presence of THC in the bloodstream. After you consume cannabis the THC levels in the blood rise rapidly and then begin to decline within just an hour. THC usually remains measurable in the blood for eight hours after consumption with an infrequent user. However, with a heavy user, it will remain there for several days.
• Hair Tests – The hair test actually measures the non-psychoactive residues that remain in the hairs for months are initial consumption.
• Saliva Test – These tests are somewhat new and they really boil down to whether the test is testing for metabolites or THC itself. THC only stays in the system 12 to 24 hours in a one-time user and 7 to 14 days in chronic users. However, the metabolites are detectable for months in frequent users.

Stop Smoking Immediately

If you have a test coming up you have to stop smoking immediately. The longer you abstain prior to testing, the higher the likelihood that you will pass. The metabolites will continue to decrease and decrease over time.

Detox With Water

There is a major misconception when it comes to detoxing with water. Most people will automatically grab the water jug and start chugging in hopes of cleaning their system. This is not only dangerous, but it is just diluting your pee, which will be detectable. Your best bet is to consume 2 to 3 liters the days before your test and 1 to 2 liters several hours before you take the test.

Detox With Exercise

Exercise is only going to work if you have the time to flush your system. Since exercise increases the rate at which your body releases stored THC and metabolites it is not a good idea to exercise the day you have to pee in the cup. Exercise will probably only help if you have at least a few weeks before the testing so don’t waste your efforts.
