How to Detox Marijuana from Your Body

Marijuana, the most commonly used illegal drug, has a habit of sticking around in your body for days or even weeks. Pot smokers who are looking to cleanse marijuana from their bodies should be prepared to be patient. Those who don’t have that luxury can spend money on detoxification products that may — or may not — hasten the process.

    Stop Smoking and Let Nature Take Its Course

  1. Step 1

    To start cleansing marijuana from your body, you must stop smoking weed. This might be harder than it sounds for long-term users. For the best chance of success, avoid settings and situations where pot may be present.

  2. Step 2

    Since marijuana is fat soluble, it can remain stored in fatty tissues for a significant period of time. According to the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, pot stays in a person’s body for one to five days after occasional use. Regular and heavy marijuana users may need three to six weeks or longer to naturally cleanse the drug from their systems.

  3. Step 3

    Take up jogging or spend a few hours each week in the gym. Burning off fat through rigorous regular exercise will help cleanse marijuana from your body.

  4. Step 4

    Drinking cranberry juice may help cleanse marijuana from the body more quickly because of its acidic nature, which can destroy marijuana metabolites, and because it has diuretic flushing properties. Some marijuana users also say that niacin can accelerate the cleansing process, but this belief is not supported by scientific evidence.

  5. Step 5

    Online vendors sell dozens of marijuana detoxification products that contain mixtures of herbal cleansers, minerals and vitamins. Keep in mind, however, that there is little substantiation behind claims that these drinks, powders and shampoo can cleanse your body of marijuana within a few days or even hours.

  6. Step 6

    Regardless of the marijuana-cleansing method that you choose, a home drug test is the best way to determine whether the process has been completed successfully. These tests are available at local pharmacies for about $15.

    anyone heard of clear choice? I just ordered this synthetic urine, it is supposed to be the best: http://www.passing-drug-test.com/clean-urine.html

    any of you used it??

    They take the temperature of the urine to see if you’ve brought your own. If you bring urine, you’ll have to keep it at your body temperature to play it safe. I used a golden seal tea product & it worked. The only side effect is that I had to pee very frequently & badly when drinking a gallon of this stuff 3 hours prior to the test. I kept pull to the side of the road to pee on my way to the test.

      I just hope people don’t blindly do the same from reading this because if you’re unlucky and they test your urine in the lab they can easily detect Golden Seal and other common adulterants that have been used for weed detox forever. I would recommend http://thcclean.net/ for up to date detox guidelines.

      actually you can tell based on the levels of certain hormones present in the urine.

    Yes, different chemicals including testosterone and progesterone show up differently between men and women.Also if the male has any other drug uses legal or not will also show up. IE:Vicodin shows up as a opiate.
