How to pass a drug test

Drug testing has become an industry standard in most countries and marijuana or rather THC levels are what is most commonly tested for.

How to Pass a Marijuana Drug Test

Despite the fact that some countries have already made recreational marijuana use legal, the law still permits employers to deny employment to someone based on failed THC drug test. It is for this reason that many people have started seeking a fool-proof method to pass a drug test, even if the time frame to do so is very short.

Marijuana detection times based on usage

  • One time— 5-8 days
  • 2-4 times per month— 11-18 days
  • 2-4 times per week— 23-35 days
  • 5-6 times per week— 33-48 days
  • Daily usage— 49-63 days

Before we get into passing the drug test we first need to know what kinds of drug tests exist and how do they work. Essentially, any drug test performed will include testing for marijuana as well. Take note that some tests can be performed at random and on a very quick notice, due to the fact that they are very simple to conduct.

1. Saliva Marijuana Drug Test and How to Pass it

Saliva drug test is by far the easiest to conduct and it provides results in the shortest amount of time. This has made it popular as a quick test during an employment interview or a random workplace test. Despite it being fairly quick to give results, it should by no means be considered inaccurate.

How is the test conducted?

  1. The test is conducted by inserting a small brush or a cotton swab between the gums and lower cheek of the person being tested.
  2. The swab is then moved over the gums and under the tongue for a few minutes in order to collect a saliva sample from all areas of the mouth.
  3. After that the swab is placed in a test tube for a few minutes and if the liquid inside the tube changes color, the results will be considered positive.
  4. Alternatively, instead of a swab, an absorbent strip can be used, which is placed between the gums and lower cheek and which will change color after a few minutes if the results are positive.

How long will marijuana be detectable by this test?

The upside of this test, from a test taker’s point of view, is that marijuana will be detectable in saliva for a maximum of 72 hours. This, of course, depends on several factors such as height, weight, metabolism rate, and frequency of smoking. The frequency of smoking plays the most vital role in this case, since somebody who smokes less than once per month will clear out THC from their saliva in as little as 12 hours.

Methods that help pass this test

There are basically two methods that will help you pass a saliva drug test. Depending on the amount of time that you have to prepare you can decide on the best one for yourself.

  1. Last-minute detox or cleansing method – this is method is better suited for people who are working against the clock. While THC clears out from saliva relatively quickly, there is always a possibility of a test being administered at random and on a short notice. Having some form of cleansing method to increase your odds of passing at all times is highly advisable. There are many products in the form of bubblegum or mouthwash that are designed to clear out toxins in a short amount of time and leave your saliva sample clean for around 6 hours after using them.
  2. Natural cleansing method – this method requires a little bit of time to be performed properly and it essentially consists of abstaining from smoking for a few days. In order to bolster your chances of success, it is advisable to hydrate regularly and to exercise, as THC is fat-soluble and exercising will help you metabolize the toxins quicker. Another good thing to do during this period is to stay away from junk and fatty food and to eat products that are rich in vitamins, like leafy vegetables and most fruits.

The best option would obviously be combining both methods if the time permits it and doing it this way will have the greatest chance of success.

3. Blood Drug Test and How to Pass it

Contrary to urine and saliva drug tests that look for metabolites (substances that our body transforms toxins into), blood test looks for actual drug traces which makes it more suitable for determining current intoxication level rather than long-term consumption. The fact that the test itself is quite expensive compared to others and has to be done by a licensed medical expert makes this test the least popular one of the four.

How is the test conducted?

  1. The employer will usually schedule a test for you in the local clinic or laboratory.
  2. You will come to the clinic at the appointed time and a blood sample will be taken by a licensed medical expert, usually from your forearm vein.
  3. After the sample is taken it will be brought to the laboratory for testing and your employer will be notified of the results in a couple of days.

How long will marijuana be detectable by this test?

Since this test looks for traces of THC rather than its metabolite, the time it takes your body to cleanse is dramatically reduced. For a casual smoker 2 – 3 days will be enough to clean out all the THC in 99% of the time. Heavy smokers (more than 3 smoking sessions per week) will have to wait up to 7 days to make sure that their blood is “clean”.

Methods that help pass this test

The best way to make sure that you pass your marijuana blood test is to abstain from smoking for 4 days as a casual user, or 10+ days as a heavy user, while hydrating and eating properly. Using a specialized detox product will work just as well as with urine test. Given that blood tests take time to schedule and have a short detection time you will usually have more than enough headway to naturally detox your body, but if time does not permit you to do this there are last minute detox methods that can help you pass the test on a short notice.

  1. Specialized last-minute detox products – any detox product that will work for urine test will also work for a blood test. Bear in mind that marijuana is detectable for a shorter period in blood than it is in urine so even following a 2-day detox routine will usually prove sufficient.
  2. Certo method – as with urine test, Certo method will work on a blood test as well. Mix a packet of Certo into a 32 oz. bottle of Gatorade and chug it down. Do this an hour before the test and you should have no problems passing a blood test.

4. Hair Drug Test for THC and How to Pass It

Out of all the drug tests, hair test is the hardest one to beat and it also has the longest detection period. The upside to it, from the test taker’s point of view, is that it can only detect THC and its metabolites 5 days after the last use.

How is the test conducted?

  1. The employer will usually schedule a test for you in the local clinic or laboratory.
  2. You will come to the clinic at the appointed time and a have a hair sample taken from you.
  3. The hair sample is a thin cutaway from the back of your head, usually 1.5 inches from the scalp.
  4. If you have short hair or are bald, any other body hair will suffice.
  5. After the sample is taken it will be brought to the laboratory for testing and your employer will be notified of the results in a couple of days.

How long will marijuana be detectable by this test?

Considering that every half-inch of your hair represents one month worth of hair growth, this method can determine if you smoked marijuana months, even years prior to the test being carried out depending on the length of your hair. Luckily, usually only the 1.5 inches closest to the scalp are taken which represent the last 90 days prior to the sample being taken.

Methods that help pass this test:

Since hair takes nutrients from your body and mainly your blood to grow, and the metabolites become a stable part of your hair this way, there are only two proven methods aside from abstaining from smoking for 90 days, which will help you test negative.

Method 1: Medical-level hair detox aka. Macujo Method – for this method you will need:

  • Nexus Aloe Rid Shampoo
  • Shampoo with salicylic acid
  • Liquid detergent
  • White vinegar
  • Shower caps
  • Googles
  1. First, you will have to put on some eye protection, use swimming goggles or any similar eyewear.
  2. Get our hair wet with warm water.
  3. Massage vinegar into your hair and scalp.
  4. Massage salicylic acid shampoo into your hair and scalp. Take note that this will cause a burning sensation.
  5. Wipe any excess shampoo from your ears and forehead, put on a shower cap and wait for 30 to 45 minutes.
  6. After 30 to 45 minutes have passed take the cap off and rinse hair with warm water.
  7. Wash and rinse thoroughly using Nexus Aloe Rid Shampoo.
  8. Add some detergent and again rinse thoroughly until everything has been washed off.
  9. Repeat this every day for 10 days, or if you do not have that much time do it tow times a day for 5 days. Do not do it more than that as you risk damaging your hair seriously.

This method has the highest rate of success as reported by the many people who previously attempted it. While there are other similar methods that include using bleach, they are usually really unhealthy and potentially health threatening which is why they are not mentioned.

Method 2: Shave off all your hair – this method is less advisable as coming to a hair test without a hair on your body will raise suspicion.

The Methods That Don’t Work

Before I speak about what methods to use if you want to know how to pass a drug test in 24 hours, here are the methods that DO NOT work.

Home Remedies For Drug Test

 Oh how I hate the bull that is being passed around by self-proclaimed detox gurus about home remedies. Be it cranberry juice or Azul tea or the Certo method, these are the last things that you’d want to try when you have a drug test coming at you in less than 24 hours.

Do any of these methods work? Maybe yes, maybe not. But if all that you have at hand is 24 hours, you don’t even want to find out.  Forget about passing a drug test with household products and home remedies. Just go with what works and none of these do. Period!

How to pass a drug test in 24 hours – Working Methods!

Synthetic Urine

The first thing that you’d want to confirm is whether it is an unsupervised or a supervised drug test. In case of an unsupervised drug test, go with a bottle of Sub Solution synthetic urine.

While there are many other brands of synthetic urine that are cheaper than Sub-Solution, none even come close to the authenticity with which it is manufactured.

Sub Solution contains both uric acid and urea in addition to 11 other chemicals which make it impeccably similar to real urine. The heat activator makes it so easy to get the urine sample to the precise desired temperature.

In fact, I can vouch for the fact that it is undetectable. If you are wondering how to pass a drug test in 24 hours, then sneak in a bottle of sub solution and submit the sample. Consider the test passed.

Detox Drinks

If it’s a supervised drug test where a lab assistant is going to watch you pee into a bottle, you’d have to go with a detox solution. My favorite and most trusted brands are Mega Clean and Rescue Cleanse.

Both these detox drinks completely mask all traces of THC in your urine for up to 4-5 hours giving you ample time to submit your urine sample at the lab. One of the best features of both these detox drinks is that they do not make your urine sample overly watery which can result in it being detected as fake.

Make sure to keep one of these at home for SOS situations, because shipping might take 1-2 days.

These are the easiest and most foolproof ways to clear a drug test in 24 hours. They work every time and they are not going to cost a bomb either.

Employers these days are known to spring surprise random drug tests especially if they are anal about the rules. My previous employer for example, was infamous for scheduling drug tests out of nowhere.

Better have it and not need it than the other way round.

Increasing Fluid Intake

How To Pass A Drug Test

There are certain ways to combat testing positive for drugs. Increasing your fluid intake is just one such way, and an easy one to do at that. The reasoning behind it is to dilute the concentration of the drug in your urine by filling your bladder with fluids. A couple hours before a short notice test, start drinking as much water as you can handle. If you have a few days to prepare, wash yourself out for days in advance by drinking water throughout the day and night.

In any case, always try to take the urine test later on in the day. Drug metabolites build up during sleep, so if they try testing you in the morning, see if you can reschedule for the afternoon.
