Simple Remedies to Detoxify Marijuana from your System

There are several reasons why you’d want to flush out marijuana from your system, the most common being a drug test for your impending employment. But is there a reliable way to detox from marijuana? Well, that’s exactly what you’ll get to know over the next few sections.

How long does marijuana stay in my system?

The timeframe of marijuana staying in your system will depend on your intensity and frequency of smoking. If you had smoked weed for the first time, you’d barely need a week to cleanse it out. If, however, you’ve been a moderate to heavy smoker, you’d need at least a couple of weeks (or even months) to cleanse marijuana out of your system.

The safest way to get marijuana out of your urine is by waiting it out. If you do have the time for a drug cleanse, keep waiting while following a healthy diet and performing moderate to high-intensity exercise. This will ensure that the cannabinoids are effectively flushed from your system.

How to detox marijuana from your system?

In this section, you will find some simple remedies that’ll help you detoxify marijuana from your system. These remedies are easy, and they involve completely accessible ingredients.

Water and diuretics

When it comes to detoxifying marijuana from your body, a combination of water and diuretics is deemed to be a top choice. For this, you’ll have to start off by choosing a diuretic of your preference. While cranberry juice is a safe choice here, you can also opt for grape juice, coffee or green tea. If your preferred diuretic doesn’t have natural electrolytes, add a dash of table salt or baking salt to it. After zeroing in on the diuretic, drink it at least 24 hours before the test. Additionally, also have copious amounts of water and follow a healthy diet comprising of natural and fresh ingredients. Once you take the combination of water and diuretic, your urine will be naturally diluted, helping you pass the test.

Detox drinks

Water and cranberry juice aren’t the only drinks that can help you. Commercial detox drinks specially designed to clean out all traces of THC from your system are also available on the market. For best results, you should drink them a few hours before your drug test.

High-fiber diet

One of the best ways to flush out the weed from your system is a high-fiber diet. So, try following a diet that includes plenty of veggies like spinach, cucumber, artichokes and the likes of it. Make sure you also include plenty of fruits and whole grains in this diet. Cut down on processed sugar or any form or processed food. You can start this diet at least 7 to 14 days before your test to successfully clean out your system.

Sauna sessions

In case you still don’t know, sweating plays a major role in getting the THC out of your body, and one of the best ways to trigger it is by taking sauna baths. You should ideally take sauna sessions every day at least one week to completely flush out the toxins.

Multi-vitamin pills

If you have taken a multivitamin pill at some point, you’d know the impact it leaves on your urine. Yes. In almost every case, a multi-vitamin pill renders a yellowish tinge to your urine. Since the combination of water and diuretic is likely to affect the color of your urine, it is best to team it up with a vitamin-B tablet. Start taking this tablet at least 3 days before the test. On the day of your test, take it at least 5 hours in advance. Once you do this, your urine, albeit diluted, will have a yellowish tinge. Therefore, you’re likely to qualify for the test even with diluted urine.

Keep your activity level normal

In order to avoid any discrepancies, you also have to ensure that your level of activity and stress is balanced right before the test. If you start burning more fat than usual all of a sudden, the cannabinoids in your system are likely to be dumped in your bloodstream. Alternatively, if you become sedentary all of a sudden, your fat cells are likely to store more cannabinoids. The easiest way to deal with the situation is by keeping your physical activities light. For best results, follow our recommended remedies along with a light walk or jog for half an hour or one hour a day. This will prevent all potential fluctuations and help you pass the test easily.

Bottom line

Once you follow our recommended guidelines, detoxifying from marijuana will be easier than ever! Also, do note that you need to completely stop smoking weed. Unless you do this, you can never entirely cleanse your system from THC.
