If you’re hoping to pass a urine test in a hurry, drinking 1-2 liters of lemon water throughout the day before your test might help to dilute your urine and flush your system. Although be careful–drinking too much water, can lead to a dangerous condition called hyponatremia, during which the cells are flooded with water causing seizures, coma, and even death.
The most effective way to cleanse the body of THC is to abstain from consuming cannabis altogether (which includes smoking marijuana). By committing to a THC cleanse, your body is able to remove cannabinoids and their remaining metabolites from your system naturally. You may be able to thoroughly cleanse your body of THC within 4-6 weeks so long as you eat a high-fiber diet, drink plenty of water, and get at least 30 minutes of daily exercise. While detoxing from THC can be easy for some, it can be challenging for others. When a person has been using marijuana consistently for medicinal purposes, their body can have a volatile reaction with unpleasant, and even painful, withdrawal symptoms, including:

While drinking 1-2 liters per day will sufficiently dilute your urine, colorless urine is an immediate red flag for any testing lab. Therefore, it’s crucial that you mask your dilution attempt by taking a multivitamin, or preferably a vitamin B12 or B2 supplement several hours before your test. These water-soluble vitamins are very effective in darkening urine.
Hair drug testing has the longest window of detection, providing a history of drug use going back up to 90 days. Similar to urinalysis, hair testing measures THC-COOH metabolites, in the hair shaft, rather than THC itself. These metabolites enter the hair follicle seven days after consumption and hence don’t test for current impairment. Due to the long-lasting nature of hair follicles, it is essential to use the appropriate detox program combined with an aloe toxin rid shampoo. You can find our Old Style Aloe Toxin Rid Shampoo here.
Oral fluid or saliva testing is less commonly used for workplace drug testing. It involves collecting an oral swab from the lower gums, which is left in place for several minutes. These oral samples can contain cannabinoids or metabolites for up to 48 hours post cannabis consumption in occasional users, and up to 29 days in chronic, heavy users.
