What do athletes, investors, and Walmart employees have in common? In order to be one, you may have to pass a drug test. And the list doesn’t end there. Even as cannabis makes strides towards legalization in countries like Canada and the U.S., uptight executives everywhere ensure that drug testing remains a fixed part of the employment process.
But most people are just as likely to quit using cannabis as they are to give up coffee, or wine and beer. So until the draconian laws and employer expectations around cannabis dissipate, your best bet is learning how to successfully pass a drug test. Luckily, with the right detox drink, it won’t be too difficult.
Detox Drink #1: Clear Choice Detox Drinks.
We’ve put Clear Choice’s Rescue Cleanse as the number one detox drink for a few reasons: not only is Clear Choice Rescue Cleanse the most effective detox drink currently available, but it isn’t as disgusting as the other options (like drinking vinegar). Clear Choice Rescue Cleanse comes in several sizes. If you are over 200 pounds you’ll need to take the 32oz version. But if you’re under 200 pounds make sure that you take the 17oz bottle. Too much is just as bad as too little.
For Clear Choice Rescue Cleanse to be effective, you must stop using cannabis at least 48 hours before drinking it. Also, make sure that your stomach is empty before consumption—this means you should refrain from eating for four hours before drinking Rescue Cleanse. Shake, then drink the Rescue Cleanse mixture over the course of 15 minutes. Once you’ve finished the bottle, refill it with water, and drink that over 15 minutes.
And your final step? Pee. A lot. The goal of Clear Choice Rescue Cleanse is to flush THC out of your body through your urine and stool. Timing is also crucial, so just make sure you use the Rescue Cleanse about two hours before your drug test. If you wait more than four or five hours after using Clear Choice Rescue Cleanse, your chances of passing your drug test will diminish.
Other than timing, Clear Choice Rescue Cleanse is a pre-mixed detox drink designed specifically to help you pass your drug test. So sit back, relax, and let Clear Choice Rescue Cleanse run its magic.
Detox Drink #2: Lemon Juice.
Lemon juice is often used as a detox drink because of its acidic properties. Lemon juice flushes out your system similarly to how rubbing alcohol removes grease or grime stains. Luckily, you don’t need to ingest a whole bottle of lemon juice before your drug test or spend hours squeezing lemons into a glass. Just mix one tablespoon of lemon juice into a 16oz glass of water, and spend the next few hours slowly sipping.
The lemon juice method is kind of like your shampoo: lather, rinse, repeat. The goal is to drink as much lemon juice as possible while maintaining the ratio of one tablespoon of lemon juice to one 16oz glass of water. You should drink this mixture at least 7 or 8 times before your drug test, so I recommend pre-preparing bottles of lemon juice so you constantly have a bottle handy.
Detox Drink #3: Nuclear Meltdown.
This is one of the more disgusting options. But hopefully, like Buckley’s, it will work. The idea here is to mix together as many ingredients known for detoxification as possible and choke it down like the bitter medicine it is.
For this detox drink, you’ll need to mix together 16oz of warm water, 2tbs of apple cider vinegar, 2tbs of lemon juice, 1tsp of ground ginger, 1/4tsp of cinnamon, and a pinch of cayenne pepper. Adding 1 tsp of honey is recommended to sweeten the flavor, and make the experience slightly more enjoyable. (Though realistically, you’re not making cocktails here—you’re trying to flush THC out of your system.)
Mix everything together in a large glass, hold your nose, and try to get the experience over with as quick as possible. Oh yeah, and you’ll need to consume this detox drink at least three times on the day of your drug test.
Detox Drink #4: Lots of Water.
Sometimes, it’s best to keep things simple. If you can’t stomach acidic ingredients like lemon juice or apple cider vinegar, sometimes the best detox drink is just plain old water. The trick here is volume and timing.
This trick works especially good if you have to take a drug test on extremely short notice. The technique is simple: 30 minutes before your drug test, drink as much water as possible. Then hold in all that pee until it’s time to take your drug test. With any luck, a waterfall of H2O will shoot through your small intestines and out of your urinary tract and into the pee cup.
The idea here is that your pee is pure water, and therefore, will test negative for THC. The real challenge will be trying not to wet your pants in the process.
The Best Detox Pills
Just like stretching before a workout, you’ll have more success passing a drug test if you warm up your body with pre-cleanse detox pills first. These pills help your body to more effectively eliminate toxins leading up to your drug test. For the best results, order a bottle of Herbal Pre Cleanse Capsules from Clear Choice. This pre-cleanse regimen comes in a bottle of 60 capsules, and for the best results, you should be taking one in the morning and another at night, washed down with plenty of water. This method works best if you consume the capsules for at least 14 days prior to your drug test (in case it’s not already obvious, refrain from consuming cannabis during this time.) By the time you’re ready to consume your pre-drug test detox drink, your body will already be fairly toxin-free and primed for success.
Easy Ways To Detox From Cannabis
If you’re looking for a natural way to flush your body of cannabis, you could try ingesting certain root plants, such as red clover, yellow root, or burdock root. These natural remedies have been said to work as diuretic aids to increase and speed up your bodies production of urine. They may also help to increase the speed of your metabolism, which could allow your body to more quickly flush itself of toxins.
Another method is to try and sweat out bodily toxins—and quite frankly, this may be the most enjoyable option. Mainly, because it involves spending a lot of time in the sauna. While making sure to remain hydrated, spend some time sitting in a sauna or steam room, and allow your body to sweat profusely.
Regular exercise will also help you to detox more quickly. Try incorporating long runs into your daily routine. This will not only result in perspiration but keep your metabolism operating at peak form. And since cannabis is absorbed into your fat cells, burning off this fat may help to eliminate traces of cannabis from your system faster.
