More often than not, the stresses that come with job seeking will push you to taking some substances like marijuana. Normally for an occasional user, marijuana takes up to five days to clear from urine. For a regular user, this takes up to three weeks. Clearing it from your urine within 24 hours is not easy, but is possible as long as you act fast and you have the required tools. Here are some of the remedies you can use from home to test clear of marijuana.
Drink lots of water per day before you go for your test. This is a natural first step in the process of detoxification. It flushes out the drug residue from your system by diluting it from your urine. 68 ounces of water is however enough for a day. This should be taken in sips rather than chugging in a single sitting. Don’t be tempted to take too much water because the urine might become too dilute to qualify for the test.
Exercising increases metabolism, along with the detoxification process. This breaks down fat cells where THC, the tested substance in marijuana is stored. Sweating is a faster way for you to rid your body of drug residue as it is a way of eliminating body toxins. Do not however exercise on the test day because it might show in your urine.
Niacin (vitamin B3)
This is sold as a pill for losing weight, and can be obtained over the counter from many drug stores. This supplement will enhance your body’s rate of detoxification by dilating blood vessels and increasing the solubility of the blood stream. A daily dose of two pills, two days to your test is effective. Niacin can however be associated with adverse effects.
This is used to mask the actual PH of your urine. Normally when marijuana enters the system, the THC output causes urine PH imbalances. One large glass of water is mixed with five table spoons of baking soda and taken two hours before the test. Baking soda may however cause unpleasant effects or result to ridiculous PH levels that may raise suspicions.
Alcohol increases the rate at which water leaves the body and this enhances detoxification. This will therefore clear the THC in your blood stream. It however does not touch the THC accumulated in the tissues and fat cells. Two beers or two glasses of wine are helpful here. The catch is that alcohol will be detected in your system in case the test also measures alcohol levels.
As an acid, vinegar can help your body get rid of toxins like THC by breaking down the digestive system. You can combine it with lemon juice and take a few servings two days to your test. Be careful with the quantities of vinegar you take because large amounts of vinegar may cause harm to your system and may also raise the urine PH to abnormal levels, therefore calling for further tests.
