Despite cannabis becoming legal in more U.S. states, there are still organizations that ask for drug tests. It could be a school, a prerequisite for a job or something else. For regular cannabis users, it’s important to know how these tests work and how to flush the THC out of one’s system.

It’s also important to know which drug test will be administered since THC’s presence varies depending on the type of body sample being analyzed. For example, saliva tests may measure the presence of THC that was consumed a few days ago, while hair samples can show THC consumed three or more months ago.

Here are four safe ways to help a person register a clean drug test. Be aware that the more time a person has before the test to prepare, the more likely the approach taken will be successful. Of course, the best way to test clean for an upcoming test is to steer clear of weed.

Dilution method

This increases urine flow, with the ideas being that will dilute the THC concentration in the sample provided. Some maintain diuretics like cranberry juice and coffee will help speed the process.

Since drinking copious fluids will make a person’s urine fairly clear-coloured, the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws reports taking vitamin B2. This will add some yellow colour to the urine yellow.

Test oneself

If a test is coming up, consider testing at home ahead of that time. Many drug abuse centers provide drug tests for free and there are also pharmacies, which sell home kits for drug testing.

Stall for time

Try to postpone or reschedule the test for those who think they will not pass. Every extra day of not consuming will offer more time to get clean.

Be careful of what’s online

There are a many methods and marijuana detox kits, some of them just silly and other possibly dangerous. Don’t waste time on quick fixes, but, rather, do some research. It’s best to get clean a few weeks in advance and stick to a cannabis-free environment for that time.
