So, you have found yourself in a position where you have an impending drug test – and you need to pass! It can be hard to know how to get your sample clean, fortunately we have a few tips on what drug labs look for, and the best way to flush your system.

Passing a drug test can be quite worrying when you smoke pot, it can make all the difference between a new job, or finding your ass on the street. Let us start with what drug tests look for. Most people will try to contaminate or cover up their sample with household products; this usually does more harm than good, as labs look out for this kind of contamination and can easily identify it.

Examples of what a lab will test your urine sample for

pH pH

The pH of urine can vary between 5-8, with 7 being normal. Some household products frequently used to tamper with a urine sample will change this pH, so be careful.

Couleur Color

If a urine sample is too clear, the lab will suspect that it has been watered down. As a result, they are highly likely to reject it on the grounds they believe it has been tampered with - which in most cases is just as bad as a fail. This can also happen if you drink too much water before the test, so take some vitamin B complex for the days leading up to it, it will make your urine more yellow.

Creatinina Creatinine

Creatinine is something found in all vertebrates and is present in our urine. The amount is often measured in the sample and then compared to a normal value. Anything outside of this value will cause a fail. Watering down urine will reduce the amount of creatinine present in the sample. Eating red meat can help boost the amount present in your urine.

These are but a few of the things looked at. As people become more inventive and find new ways to tamper with their samples, labs find new ways to test them. There are a few things you can do to prepare yourself, for example, test yourself on THC before someone else does.

The Best Way To Pass A Marijuana Drug Test

Let‘s assume you‘ve got 2 weeks preparation time - it‘s going to be harder the less time you have. The best, tried and tested method of passing a drug test for marijuana is a combination of three key elements:

  • perform intense exercise
  • use a sauna
  • drink a lot of water

There are those out there that will tell you this method does not work, but they do not know what they are talking about – and we shall explain why.

Firstly, and this is pretty self-evident, you should completely abstain from consuming weed. Sure, this may be hard, but it is vital in order to make sure new THC is not being placed in your system.

Passing a Drug Test: Phase 1

Passing a Drug Test: Phase 1

The first part of the process takes place over the first week and a half. For this time period you need preform short burst of hard exercise. Join your local sports center/gym to get access to training equipment and a sauna. Your goal is to burn as much fat as possible.

THC gets stored in fat cells and you need to make sure you release as much of them as possible. One way to do so, is to run 1.5 miles everyday within 18 minutes. After the run, rest for 15 minutes and then hit the sauna. Using a gym is easier - you will have access to a treadmill, with a sauna close by.

Stay in the sauna for 10 minutes, then take a cold shower, followed by another 10 minute sauna session. All the while, drink lots of water to stay hydrated. You need to do this everyday for the first 1 and a half weeks – this is hard to do, especially if you are unfit.

How does the first phase work?

When you go for an intense run, your body burns through a lot of fat, this is where THC is stored by the body. Burning fat causes the THC to be released into the blood stream, which eventfully finds its way into your urine.

By then hitting the sauna, you increase your body temperature, causing the blood to circulate around your body much faster in an attempt to cool you down. This will cause you to sweat, taking a lot of contaminants out of your body, also reducing the amount of water present within in you. By drinking lots of water during the process, your cells replace lost water with fresh water, allowing THC to pass through your system much quicker.

There are two super important points to note during this first phase of the process:

Firstly, it is important to stay away from fatty foods. If you eat fats, your body will build up new layers, not break them down. It will be these new layers that get burnt by your exercise instead of the THC containing fat – so don’t risk it.

Secondly, for the first few days of this process, you urine is might look pretty dark and cloudy, so don't be alarmed. That‘s metabolic waste flushing out.

After the first week and a half, stop exercising all together. It is now time to build up new fatty layers and piss as much as you possibly can. To do this, eat loads of fatty foods for the remaining week, also eat a lot of grapes and drink cranberry juice – these encourage you to urinate more, flushing out the system.

The day before your test, eat loads of red meat and take vitamin B complex to make sure your urine looks yellow and has high creatinine in it – the amount you are drinking is going to make your urine look watered down otherwise. On the day of the test, drink loads of water and take go to the toilet 3-4 times before the test. Hopefully by now the THC has left your system, and the amount of water you have drunk will be not cause suspicion due to the meat and vitamins you had the night before.

Disclaimer: This is a really good way to flush your system, but it is not guaranteed. Follow the steps exactly - simply drinking lots, or only using a sauna will not work by themselves. We take absolutely no responsibility should you fail.
