How To Pass A Urine Drug Test Fast for Weed

Ah. The urine test. The most common of drug tests. Although the cause of a lot of anxiety for some, the good news is that once you actually know how to pass a urine drug test, it really doesn’t have to be all that complicated.

I lost count a long time ago of the number of these I’ve beaten. A few of them while actually being clean, but most of them while having recently smoked a bowl.

On this page I’m going to tell you what the general consensus in the community is on how to pass a drug test of this sort, as well as what I do to pass my own urinalysises consistently. So worry not, you’ll be well on your way to passing yours in no time!

But first some basics.

Not a urine test? Find out how to beat: the hair test, the saliva test or the blood test.

Basics Of The Urinalysis

smoking weed recently and the urinalysis

Regular pot smoker? Then you may potentially be at risk for months of testing positive.

The urine drug test requires you to give a sample of your pee. If you’ve recently used pot, metabolites resulting from your body breaking down THC can be found in your urine. These are also what the drug test is looking for.

A urine test can be given at any time, without much warning, but this is rare. Usually you get a time scheduled at a testing facility in the near future and will have some time to prepare for it.

Generally a urine test can detect THC in your urine for 1-10 days after single use, but anywhere between a week and 3 months+ if you’re a regular weed user.

The urine test is the type that leaves you with the largest amount of options for passing it (some safer and more reliable than others, obviously), ranging from flushing the body to using adulterants or synthetic urine instead of your own.

How To Pass A Urine Drug Test

how to pass a urine drug testSo, let’s get down to business. How do you pass the urine drug test?

As with any drug test, I’m all for minimizing any risks of failing it. If that means I need to spend a few extra dollars, so be it. Keeping my job is gonna be worth it.

There are plenty of websites and detox drinks that say all you need to do is drink one before the test and you’re fine. Their goal is to sell you their product so of course that’s what they’ll say. The reality however is that although they increase your chances, on their own they are in no way a reliable method of passing your test. Personally, I combine same day detox drinks with more reliable methods.

If you go to Amazon and search for THC detox drinks, and then take a look at the 1-star reviews of these drinks (usually at least 33% of the reviews) you will see that about a third fail when using these drinks. How’s that for a reliable method? And how many who did pass would have passed anyway, detox drink or not? If it has a better rating than this, it’s usually because it’s not a detox drink specific for drug tests so many of the good reviews are not because someone passed a test, but simply because they liked the taste and how they felt after drinking it. Read the reviews and you’ll find out!

I’ll go through some alternatives later on, but here’s how I always do it and how I’d suggest you do as well;

  1. A 10 day detox with Toxin Rid. This is the core product. I never compromise on this, but if I have less time than 10 days I may use it more times daily to make up for it. If I only smoked once or twice in the last couple of weeks I may do just a 5 day detox.
  2. Obviously, abstain from weed from the day you learn you got a test coming up. I also follow the DEERS rules as best as I can, which basically means I try to drink, eat, exercise, rest and sweat optimally. Drinking a lot is especially important for flushing and diluting your urine, but don’t overdo it. You can learn more about it here.
  3. The same day of the test drink a detox drink such as One Shot Concentrate or Mega Clean. Follow the instructions, but usually the optimal time is 2-3 hours before the test. Don’t exercise the same day.
  4. Urinate a couple of times before your test and then use mid-stream pee for your sample. So not the very first drops that come out, and not the last ones either.

And that’s it.

Pretty simple, huh? This works well for both supervised and unsupervised urine tests.

Toxin Rid

Toxin Rid

I’ve said it before, but if it’s one product to get for your urine tests, it’s Toxin Rid. What it does is that it actually cleanses you thoroughly over the period of the detoxification program, leaving very little THC left in your body. It does this very effectively as well, much more so than the majority of similar detox programs.

Same day detox drinks on the other hand attempt to mask the THC inside you temporarily while you take the test (really detoxing takes more than a couple of hours), which contributes to the high failure rate if you rely solely on. The THC is still inside you and when too much, it’s hard to cover up.

The combination of the two is where the beauty lies. After using Toxin Rid your THC levels are low enough that they can easily be masked by a solid same-day detox drink.

Both these products are from highly reputed companies, which I find is pretty important for sensitive matters like drug tests. This means they’re reliable and knows the importance of fast shipping (1-day option available) and discretion (discreet packaging so that no one can tell what you ordered).

Toxin Rid is sold by TestClear who have been in the business since 1995 and have a great live chat support to quickly answer your questions.

One Shot Concentrate

One Shot Concentrate

One Shot Concentrate is from one of the pioneers in the industry, Clear Choice, going back all the way to 1993. It’s sold from their website www.testnegative.com and comes with a 200% money back guarantee.

It is very effective and at the same time very small and convenient. Comes with four free herbal cleansing capsules to take with water right after the shot.

Another good tip is to test yourself at home before your real drug test. This is a great way to track your detox progress, and very accurate at that. It’s not quite the same as an examination in a lab however, so you’ll still want to detox even if it turns negative. I generally use this THC urine home test.

A cool bonus when ordering Toxin Rid though is that you can choose to get an at home urine drug test for free with the order.

But as mentioned before, there are more options available..

Synthetic Urine (24-hour method)

Synthetic urine is a good option at times, although in my opinion mostly not preferred over detoxing.

A few years back however, it was an entirely different story.

What changed is that labs got better at determining whether a urine sample was real or not, but more importantly that the testing supervision got stricter to the point where there many times is nowhere left to hide your bag of fake pee.

As a result of this, beating the urine test with synthetic urine is not as easy as it once was.

It doesn’t help that a lot of aged information on this topic from older articles and forum posts online keep fooling people. They then do it wrong and end up not only failing their tests, but have to live with the embarrassment of getting caught with a bag of heated pee strapped to their thighs (or wherever).

With all this said, I do want to point out that, although not as easy as in the past, it still doesn’t have to be all too difficult to beat your drug test this way. It depends on the supervision strictness of those testing you, what urine brand you use and a few other things. When needed for an unsupervised test, Sub-Solution is what I use. A very reliable one with a few usage advantages over most other fake urine kits, including a 200% money back guarantee.

For a truly supervised urine test such as the one demonstrated in the video below, using synthetic urine isn’t very realistic.  In this case you should definitely go for detoxing instead, so you can use your real urine to pass.

It does come with the luxury of not having to abstain from weed at all, which means it’s the best way to beat your urine drug test in just 24 hours, provided you already have your synthetic urine at home. If you suspect you may get random drug tests with very short notice, having a bag of synthetic urine at home already can be a great idea.

Sub-solution powdered urine

Sub-Solution – this is the synthetic urine I mainly use.

Read my Adult-only Guide On How To Pee to learn all you need to know about using synthetic urine to pass your drug test and what brands work well.

Alternative Home Remedies

There are a few alternatives, some helpful, some just dumb. These should all be taken with a grain of salt however, since they are no substitute to the more reliable methods described above.

One common rumor is that you can pass the test by simply adding an adulterate to your pee after it’s in the cup. This is not very hard for drug testers to detect however, since they usually screen for common adulterants (bleach, ammonia, visine, you name it) and any irregularities (too diluted, pH out of whack, etc) in a sample will cause suspicions.

The same is true for the rumored golden seal, cranberry juice and Palo Azul. Golden seal will do little if anything to help you pass the test. Cranberry juice will likely make your test look tampered with due to the pH. Palo Azul is unlikely to help you more than any other diuretic.

Among home remedy based techniques many have seen success with the Certo method (sometimes referred to as the Sure Gel or Sure Jell method), based on using fruit pectins before your test. I wouldn’t personally rely solely on this though, but it could definitely work as substitute for the same-day detox drink.

As touched upon before, drinking a lot of water, and thus urinating frequently, is key the days leading up to your urine test. Diluting your urine sample is another popular and somewhat effective aid in passing urinalysises. Essentially, it relies on consuming a lot of liquids before your test. This can work due to the test measures concentration of THC metabolites, nanograms per millilitre (ng/ml). by increasing the fluid amount while the amount of metabolites stay the same, the concentration lowers.

There are problems that need to be addressed though, to hide that you’ve diluted it (they can see this through various ways). Firstly you need to add some color to the urine or it will be all watery. A vitamin B-2 or B-complex tablet will make it yellow again. You also need to raise your creatinine levels since they look at these when deciding if your sample is too diluted. Taking creatine 2 days before your test is the best way for this, since it gets metabolized into creatinine within 48 hours.

Aspirin is another often mentioned home remedy. Taking 4 aspirins 4-6 hours before the test can sometimes interfere with immunoassays and cause false negative.

What’s your thoughts and/or experiences on how to pass a urine drug test?

  1. Hi! I have a question about the One Shot Concentrate product-the instructions state to allow the product “60 minutes…to become effective.” Then they state ” maximum effectiveness is achieved within the first hour.” Does that mean the max effectiveness starts AFTER waiting the 60 min for it to “become” effective? Or are the “60 min” & the “first hour” the same? Thanks!!! Love your website-VERY helpful. –Elle

    • I agree that sounds a little confusing. It’s 60 minutes for it to take effect, since it can’t affect your urine the very second you drink it, it first needs to go through your stomach etc. That means it’s the first hour after this that they state it reaches max effectiveness.

      • Hi I recently found out I’ll be having a drug test in ten days. Yesterday and the day before that I smoked about 5 grams alone plus a dab. Before that I had not smoked for six days and before that I had been smoking close to everyday for months. I frame houses so I am getting a lot of exercise in hot weather for up to 12 hours a day and I drink a lot of water. If I stop now will I be able to pass the drug test?

        • Hi Michael. To be frank I think it’s unlikely you’re clean in this time. Heavy daily smokers like you describe, usually need a month or more of abstinence even with good detox efforts, due to its fat solubility. I’d look to synthetic urine rather, if the test isn’t supervised. If that’s not possible, as a last resort, try your best to detox and then try to pass through over-dilution (never ideal since many tests can detect this, but usually better than straight up failing a test).

  2. Hi there,

    I found this site a little over 2 weeks ago and have been following all the advice pretty hardcore. Here’s the story – about 3 months ago I stopped buying “toxins” due to not having it in the budget, but I used to smoke daily, just usually 1 bowl and share it with my girlfriend. Sometimes my friends would smoke me up here and there, but for the most part I didn’t partake or have any. After a month, I stopped smoking completely, declining any offers/etc. In total I was 2 months completely free of it. Well, 3 weeks ago I bought some and smoked a bowl a day for a week. Then it came, I got the job offer of a lifetime.

    I immediately stopped partaking, and started eating extremely healthy foods, taking hour-long walks daily, and working out with cardio workouts 15-30mins a night. By the time my test comes, it’ll have been 19 days.

    I ordered the 10-day toxin rid and started it exactly a week after I stopped smoking. Started Thursday, ended yesterday (Saturday). It definitely made me go to the restroom a lot more! I’ve been testing myself almost daily, and usually there’s at least a faint line now (sometimes darker, sometimes barely there). Well, tomorrow is my test and while I’m technically passing on my first piss of the day (a visible but faint line), I’m still a bit worried since it’s not super obvious.

    I had ordered the day-of detox drink you mentioned, but it doesn’t look like it’s going to get here in time. Due to this, I’m thinking of getting QCarbo 32. Since I’m passing the home tests every day now (barely), do you think the qcarbo should do the trick? I’m going to test myself the morning of and also right before the test to see how it looks.

    I’m also a bit confused because after doing more research, it seems the darkness or lightness of the line is dependent on the individual test and has nothing to do with how much THC waste is left over in your system. I even read one person who tested the same sample twice with 2 different tests and one was darker than the other.

    It’s stupid I even have to do this because it’s legal in my state (Colorado), but from what I’ve read that doesn’t matter at companies since it’s still illegal federally.

    Thanks for this site and any advice you may have!

    • Hey Jason.

      You seem to be doing things just as they should be done. Many skip out on diet and exercise (due to lazyness mainly) but that definitely makes a difference, especially so in synergy with detox products. Going to the restroom more is all good and to be expected as well, since that’s how the toxins are removed.

      Definitely get that Qcarbo32 if you won’t get the ordered detox drink on time. They are especially effective when you’re on the edge of passing naturally, since the smaller amount of toxins is way easier to hide.

      Home-tests can certainly be confusing sometimes (especially if you aren’t used to them). Most of the time they’re still fairly accurate though, yet not quite as accurate as a lab test. Even a faint line generally indicates a passed test, and like you said, many times the color or strength of the line has no meaning at all. All that matters is that there is a line. But there are many different brands of home tests so it might differ some. Here’s a resource on reading home tests explaining the faint line with images http://www.homehealthtesting.com/positive-drug-test-result.html.

      I agree it’s stupid. It’s legal, yet you face pretty much the same issues as you would in any other state. Best of luck with your test either way!

  3. Not seeing my comment, testing if this post works

    • The reason you weren’t seeing your comment is it has to be manually approved first, to keep the comments free from spam. May take 1 to a few days generally, depending on when I have time to read them.

  4. I haven’t consumed since Tuesday, and it’s been mostly reggie. If I run let’s say about 2 or 3 miles for the next 3 days while drinking plenty of water and so on, would that possibly be enough to naturally pass a drug test? I don’t really have the funds for detox solutions (except for whatever Planet K has) Thanks

    • Impossible to say. It depends on how much you’ve been smoking prior in terms of amount, frequency and how potent stuff. Also on your individual metabolism. When on a budget the best options are generally to get some synthetic urine. If you are going to try it naturally, at least get yourself some home drug test strips. Amazon sells them in packs of 10 for like 8 bucks. If you’re testing positive on these, you’re unlikely to pass the real one, while if you’re testing negative, your chances are decent.

  5. Hi there, I have a DT for a job I really need and want. I stopped smoking immediately once I was made aware of the test. I have been a pretty regular smoker for years now and usually smoke high grade stuff about 5 times a week 3-4 bong hits a day. I have been off the green with no detox pills for 3 days, drinking tons of water, eating healthier (more greens, lean meats, no red meat or junk food). I received my 10 day toxin rid on the 4th day of not smoking and started it immediately. I have also been working out for about an hour every other day (and hopefully everyday next week as I’m off work on vacation) I have been able to postpone my test so that I will have been off weed for about 17 days until the test. I plan on stopping working out 2 days before the test and using one shot concentrate on the day of the test. I have yet to test my urine myself bc I think it’s too soon, but have a couple home tests I plan to take once I get further along in the detox. I feel like I’m obsessing over this but the job is very important to me. I am 5’1 about 105 lbs. pretty healthy and fit, although I’ve gained a bit of weight bc I always do in the fall/winter and during the holidays. Would you recommend taking fiber supplements during the use of the toxin rid? What about Niacin to possibly speed up metabolism? How would you recommend I use the fiber powder that came in the kit? Is it necessary or should I just stick to fiber pills? I must thank you for this website and all of your detailed advice and experience on this subject. You really helped relieve my anxiety and have given me faith that I may be able to pass this test. Like you I tend to research meticulously on things that interest me and are very important to me. It took me a minute to stumble upon your site as I had to sort through all of the other stuff on the subject. Any advice is much appreciated. Thank you!!!!

    • Hey, I don’t think you’re obsessing (not too much anyway) since 17 days is actually not that long a time of abstinence considering you’ve smoked potent stuff several times a day on most days prior. That being said you seem to be doing things right when it comes to detox. Fiber supplements would be unnecessary imo since you already have that with Toxin Rid, although it obviously can’t hurt either. If you have them already, then use them at a different time of the day from the Toxin Rid fiber. As for how to use them just follow the instructions.

      I think you should be fine for your test doing what you’re doing, but as always there are no guarantees since people have different bodies and metabolisms and so on. I understand that you really want the job so my final advice would be to go on what your home tests show you eventually. In the case you still test positive on your home tests the days before your actual test, synthetic urine would be an option to fall back on. Many very heavy users (I’d say you fall under that category from your description) prefer synthetic urine over detox since it can vary so much in terms of how long it takes to clear the system.

  6. Hi, great website!!
    One quick question, Toxin Rid claims to clear your system of toxins, and unless you take drugs again, you should pee clean regardless of when the test is… Unlike most other methods that only dilute you pee, and you’ll only pee clear for a few hours, have you tested this?

    • Yes that’s how it works and that is why you take it over a set amount of days, because for detox to happen the toxins needs time to leave your body. And once you’ve actually detoxed, it means most of the toxins are no longer in your body and thus it doesn’t matter when you take your test since the detoxed toxins won’t get back into your body unless you smoke again before. Same day detox drinks (the most common detox product) work in part by diluting and won’t detox you, only increase your chances a bit over the next few hours. This is why a combination of real detox and masking whatever is left remains the best solution.

  7. Last weekend I smoked for the first time in my life, Saturday I did 2 dabs and Sunday I did 3 dabs. Today I found out that I will be needing to pass a drug test in about 1 and a half weeks, will the DEERS method work? Or will I need to do more?

    • If you have a fast or even just normal metabolism, I think DEERS would be enough. 2+3 dabs isn’t that much. But, you’d still do best in getting yourself a home test kit to make sure you’re clean before your test.

  8. I have a random drug test coming up in the next few days, and I have smoked heavily for almost 3 months (multiple times a day), but I also run track (therefore i sweat a lot and drink a lot of water) and have a very fast metabolism (6’4, only 165 pounds). I’ve been clean for 2 days. I have 2 questions- how long do you think it would take me to get clean, and will the Cetro method work for me.

    • Multiple times daily is considered very heavy use and with such a short time until a test, synthetic urine is definitely the preferred method. Certo is a very hit and miss method, imo reserved for very strict budgets, because although many pass with it, a lot of people have failed with it as well. Considering your fast metabolism and exercise habits, a 10 day Toxin Rid would likely do it for you, but then again we’re talking 10 days at the very least which is more than you have here and still not guaranteed since everyone has different body chemistries.

  9. Hello Ms Sophie,
    Please help!! I had an interview this morning (Thursday), They called me back this afternoon and said if I would like the job a drug test will be issued on Monday. Idk what to do. I’ve been smoking on a consistent nightly basis for a couple years now. When I say I’m broke, I’m literally broke. I realize you get what you pay for but I need this job bad! Bills are coming around again and let’s not mention Christmas. Can you help please??

    • Hi Celia, I think your only reliable option here would be synthetic urine, perhaps Purine, which is pretty affordable. Make sure to read the guide on fake urine on this site first though.

  10. I purchased some ClearChoice Sub-Solution for a potential drug test I may have coming up for a job. After some further research I understand some labs may test for the presence of urea in the urine sample. I wasn’t able to find any solid information if Sub-Solution contains urea, so I was curious if you had any input regarding the matter as I am tempted to also order some Quick-Fix 6.1 due to this fact. On a side note the company is a larger bank/corporation so I am assuming they are probably more about crunching pennies and may not utilize the most advanced testing facilities due to costs, but I am no expert and any advice at all would be appreciated.

  11. Hi
    I don’t smoke often in fact its been about 20 days since I did, I have a drug test coming up. Thing is I normally urinate about every 20 minutes, and I drink quite a bit of water, soy milk and juices. My urine is naturally kinda clear. I’m wondering if that will affect my test in any way? Plus should I be overly concerned about not passing this test? I’m 5’9″ and 260lbs not extremely active, except my walks to every bathroom around!

    • Would depend on how much you smoke when you do, how potent stuff etc also, and your metabolism. But it sounds like you’re likely to be clean naturally in this time, since 20+ days is a decent amount of time for an ocassinal smoker. Get a home test kit to make sure though. Other than that, yes clear urine may give suspicions of dilution, so it might be a good idea to add some b-vitamins for color to avoid that.

  12. Thank you for a very informative site. I am 5’5 190lbs, I stopped smoking for a few years, then was smoking high grade bowls for a week, found out i need a DT in 7days I have the 5-day toxin rid, would that be enough to pass?

    • No probs! Depends on the amount of high grade stuff / how many times/day etc more than anything. There’s a good chance the 5-day is enough though, but you’ll want to home test yourself once done to make sure you’re clean enough. Synthetic urine is always a decent backup plan should you have to resort to that still.

  13. Hey
    So I am trying to get clean for a test I found out about on Tuesday. (it’s Thursday morning niw). I am a heavy smoker meaning daily for a few years. I have a test on next Friday so a week from tomorrow. Starting working out yesterday. Doing 3 to 6 miles a day, wheat grass shots, 2500 mg of niacin every other day, cranberry juice, multi vitamins, vitamin B for color, and Electrolytes. Also going to pick up that one shot concentrate. What else should I be doing because I NEED to be clean. Thank you!!!

    • As a daily smoker for years this isn’t a whole lot of time to get clean, not with products, but especially not with a natural approach. The best you culd do is probably to get some home tests to monitor yourself, and ideally have some synthetic urine ready as backup since chances are you won’t be clean enough by then to use your own.

  14. Hi Sophie!

    So I emailed you a few days ago in a panic- testclear wasn’t getting back to me and I have a very important second interview for an awesome job on Monday.

    Their live chat turned on, and i gave them the situation- didn’t smoke a lot (3 or 4 joints shared with 2 people 13 days ago, 2 or 3 blunts shared between 2 people 11 daysago).

    But the problem is the blunts were definitely laced- hit me like nothing else has before and I used to smoke a lot more/more often when I was in college 5 years ago. Based on the effects they think it was X (felt like I was flying and spinning above myself and seeing myself as if from in the air, super turned on and so happy).

    I’m an occasional user now- usually about 2-3 times a month max I split a few blunts or joints when someone can smoke me out because I’m flat broke. And I mean like no money at all.

    I don’t know if I smoked enough to have to do a detox, and I have no idea what kind of test they’ll do. I’m up for a few management positions at a place that requires state licenses. Testclear recommended a one or two day toxin rid detox plan and nothing else, free drug test, order more if I want.

    But I have a super sensitive stomach and some GI issues- don’t want to detox if I don’t have to but need peace of mind. I’m sure it will be a scheduled lab test and not an on the spot bc it’s a casino job and they need to make sure you’re clean. Also it’s post offer, and my second interview is still 5 days away. It could even be run through the state gaming commission. I’m guessing a urine but I have no idea.

    I didn’t know about the opportunity until end of last week and they fast tracked me-meeting with the VP of HR. I’m terrified I’ll fail but have no money to spend on different kinds of detox programs for different types of tests.

    I know I sound paranoid, but they gave me a list of ingredient in their toxin rid systems. I probably have time to space things out. I wouldn’t want to buy from any other detox website since theyre so well known and worked so well for you.

    I know their cleanses work for weed, saliva, and blood. I tried to talk to my stomach doctor and see if he can recommend something he thinks will work well for my body- even read the ingredients of toxin rid detox from test clear- but hes on vacation

    since I didnt know this opportunity would come; I haven’t been eating right or exercising or drinking enough water. I got in a car accident and am in a lot of pain; nothing too serious, but I knoe I can’t really staty and f I know that’s not healthy in general but im only about 155 lbs, 5’7″, late 20s.

    Bottom line- this could be the start of a career for me instead of just a job. I want to buy multiple drug tests- that cover different drugs for peace of mind mostly. And do the safest test
    Have you used the 10 panel drug test kit sold by test clear? I know lots of tests are unreliable. Thinking of ordering 3 with fast shipping. So I can do one now to see where I’m at, day of the interview if I think I’ll be too anxious without making sure I’m clean and don’t blow it. And another for when I know for sure what kind/when then the test will be.

    I know they aren’t expensive but the shipping is hard to swallow.

    Since I’m so broke and really need this job, what would you recommend to make sure I’m clean from all drugs and still not blow the bank/risk stomach issues? Thanks!

    Erika

    • Hi Erika. I think if you have a really sensitive stomach, synthetic urine would be the go-to. But that also comes down to what you know about the supervision when submitting your sample (will you be watched or not?). It’s also more affordable than a proper detox. Other than that, if one is set to detox, you’re on the right track of really making sure with home test kits. I actually never used the test clear multi panel tests since I stick to weed. Either way, if you’re ordering several tests, I’d go with amazon instead since it gets a lot cheaper at less than a buck per test when you buy like 10 of them and usually good shipping options.

  15. Hey, so I just found out about a great internship with a company. I smoke very avidly probably like 4-5 bowls a day and am wondering what steps I should take I order to pass my test. It is in about 3 weeks and I am just starting to get nervous about how to do it and if I will even pass if I do do these things. Also this company I am applying for is also part of a family business so I really can’t fail this or my family will find out about this all. Any help would be extremely appreciated and a plan to get through this is needed as well. Thanks!

    • 4-5 bowls is a whole lot and thus no detox can guarantee you getting clean this fast. It would be my guess you will be clean enough if you go with a 10 day Toxin Rid and also go heavy on exercising, drinking fluids and being healthy in general, but for some people it may not be. So for this kind of heavy use, synthetic urine is usually the go-to, since pre-employment tests are generally not supervised, but it never hurts doing your due diligence to make sure that’s the case for this job as well.

  16. Hey Sophie!
    I quit smoking three days ago and before that had been smoking every night for about a month. My test is Monday (or sometime next week) and was considering synthetic urine but wonder if a detox drink (the drink an hr before type) would do it. I would love your advice!

    • Since you’ve been smoking every night for a month, I’d really not trust 1 week of abstinence and a same day detox drink to pass it. The least you should do is test yourself first if you want to go with that approach. Chances are you’ll test positive on it. Synthetic urine is likely your best option here no matter what.

  17. I get that you recommend Toxin Rid, but what if i don’t have time to wait for it to ship? I live in Denver, there’s tons of head shops that sell detox kits, so are there any active ingredients i should look for?

    • Not specifically, since not 1 alone would really do it, many used in synergy works best in general. Fiber is great however to help expel THC.

  18. Hi Sophie,
    I take powdered creatine monohydrate, the stuff weight lifters take to enhance muscle mass.
    1) i think creatine comes in a few different forms; will creatine monohydrate work for the purposes you have described here?
    2) for weight lifter guys the rule of thumb is to take about a tablespoon (5 grams) per day – any more than that is just waste. Is that appropriate dosage in this situation as well? Any reason to take more in the days leading up to the test, especially since my body is already accustomed to 5g per day?

    • Nah no reason to take more, it could even seem suspicious if creatinine levels are off the charts since it could mean one is trying to pass through dilution (weight lifting is a valid enough reason though so wouldn’t worry about that). There are more things they can check for though when it comes to dilution, so just relying on creatine and drinking water isn’t exactly fool-proof, if that’s the plan.

  19. Hi Sophie,
    I am an occasional smoker. I just smoked on Sunday night and about two weeks ago before then. I have a pre-employment DT that I have to schedule within 48 hrs. What’s the best way to ensure I pass?

    • Best way is likely synthetic urine for such a short notice. Detox might very well work too though considering you don’t smoke very often.

  20. Hello Sophie,
    Great site you have with lots of useful information
    I want your opinion on my situation

    I’m on a three month probation(for possession), I have my second drug test coming up in 9 days. I passed(negative) my first one after 30 days of abstinence with no detox and mild exercise a few times a week and I had been smoking a gram or more per day for a few years.

    After my first test I started smoking for about a week. I probably consumed anywhere from an eighth to a quarter of good tree. plus a few days where I was hitting my friends vape pen that’s pretty low potency(Oil). I had originally planned to get the 10 day toxin rid, but my financial situation will not allow for this. I was able to buy the clear choice one shot concentrate. Plus I will be running twice a day for the next 7 days.

    On the day of my test I will be about 15 days without smoking. I’m thinking that because I had been clean after my month of abstinence and because I didn’t smoke that much(tell me if you think I smoked too much) with exercise and drinking water in conjunction with the one shot I should be able to pass this test.

    What do you think?

    • Hey Michael, I don’t give advice regarding probational tests due to legal reasons. In general though, getting some home tests kit can be a good way to grasp when you’re clean enough to pass a urine test, on top of the exercise and water consumption you mentioned. You should have good chances of passing a urine test at the 50ng/ml cut-off, but again, confirm with a home test.

  21. Hi Sophie,

    I have to take randon, unsupervised UA’s for my pain doctor. My problem is I can’t use synthetic since they check to see that I test positive for opiates (to prove I’m taking my meds..) Can i take my own urine and save it (freeze?) till needed and use the Sub solution heating powder or a microwave/heating pad to warm it to proper temp before my appointments? How often can I reuse/reheat my own urine? I can produce many samples and store them up… (only get tested 4 or so times a year. THANKS!

    • Not an expert here, so don’t really know how this would pan out for you in prectice. But I guess it could work. You’d need to freeze it asap to avoid bacteria, and I wouldn’t heat and refreeze the same, so 1 use per sample imo.

      • U can always take ur meds on the way to take the test or crush a little chip of each med and dissolve it in ur urine b4 submitting it. It’s worked b4.

        • It seems he doesn’t want the THC tin his urine to show up, and thus he can’t take the meds himself since that would show the THC as well in the sample. And as for crushing some and dissolving, it highly depends on what drug so one needs to be careful here. This is because with many (probably most) drugs what a urine test looks for is not the drug itself but it’s metabolites, and dissolving it won’t put it through your metabolism where these metabloites are produced, and thus often it wouldn’t work. But if it’s a drug where the drug molecule itself is scanned for, then it might very well work.

  22. Hi! Thank you for all the information, it is super helpful. So I haven’t smoked in years but just started smoking this month. I only smoked a couple hits a day over the past 2 weeks but it was higher grade stuff. I have a test in 2 1/2 weeks for a job interview but it will be sent to a lab I am pretty sure at least, would the 3 day cleanse work for me? Money is an issue and the 5 day is a little too expensive, or do you think DEERS would be enough? Thanks ?

    • Hi Cindy, my pleasure. A couple of hits a day for 2 weeks, especially high grade stuff, is still a considerable amount. Can’t say if the 3 day would be enough for you or not. Often if money is an issue, synthetic urine is a good option, and I think it would be in your case.

  23. I am desperate need of advice … I have drug test tommorow or Thursday .. And have smoked since Christmas Eve till Monday 3 am. I was clean prior till that since the 9 th of December. My recent drug test was too diluted cause I drank too much water to be safe but with a sample drug test I took turned out negative. I really need this job and the drug test is conducted at the hospital. I have purchased Omni Cleansing liquid but it has mixed reviews. I don’t want to utilize synthetic urine either .. What is my best options? I am leaning towards mega clean, toxin rid one day detox, or one shot concentrate detox. I don’t know which one to use or if there are any other viable options. Any guidance is appreciated. Please and thank you

    • Even though you mention you don’t want to use synthetic urine, that would be the only reliable option here I’d say.

  24. Hi Sophie I am probably gonna have a DT coming up in the near future , but don’t know exactly when , but will not be real soon . So I have stopped all smoking two days ago , and have started drinking lots of liquids , and taking fiber , and the stuff I have been smoking , is low grade stuff , but I usually smoke several times a day , and have done this for years . I bought a 1 hour liquid formula this was before I found your site , it was very expensive , and I got a free test kit , and I ordered more test kits when I ordered it .
    The name of the product is Test pure, and they offer a 300% money back guarantee , if you do not pass your urine test , if you followed the instructions on how to use it completely .
    Have you heard of this , and I tested myself with one test kit , without taking the Test pure with just a few days of no smoking , and drinking plenty of water , but it took the test kit like 2-3 hours before it gave a negative reading . Is that normal , and if it took that long before I got a negative reading , how long would it take a lab to know my results ?
    You have some great information on here , and thank you for your help . I am a disable VETERAN , and take a lot of meds , any advise on that as well . My disability is nothing life threatening , and meds is for pain mostly .
    Thanks again !

    • Hi Bill. I’ve heard of it, and it’s a same day detox drink. As with any of those, they are unreliable on their own unless you’re very close to clean already. Since you’re a daily smoker for years, for a test in the near future the best would probably be using synthetic urine, granted you don’t need to have any meds show up on your results, and it isn’t supervised. You can always go with the 10 day Toxin Rid, but know that with years of daily build-up, there no guarantees it’ll get you clean enough.

      As for the test kits, they differ so read the instructions, but most should show results very quickly, and I don’t think it’s reliable if you wait several hours, it should be read soon after, again according to instructions.

      • Hi Sophie,

        I am about to start my toxin rid 10 day detoxification process. I am a chronic marijuana user as I have been smoking several times a week since the beginning of November. I’m 6’1 200 lbs and 21 years old. I am an athlete and workout daily. I am expecting a drug test within the next two weeks. The Last time I smoked was New years eve, so about 4 days ago. Although I am about to begin my detox, this weekend, I have a couple events planned where I see myself drinking pretty heavily. I will definitely be staying away from marijuana, but I am curious if heavy alcohol use mid detox will drastically affect my results. Please get back to me and thank you so much.

        • Hey Andy,
          heavy drinking can certainly slow down your detox, mainly because your body won’t be able to detox as effectively when taxed by alcohol and hangovers. I wouldn’t say it’s a drastic effect, but if you plan on doing this several times it could be. Drinking moderately is no way near as bad as drinking heavily, due to for how long it may prevent your body to work optimally afterwards. Can’t be more specific than this though.

  25. Hi Sophie,
    Been a heavy user of quality herb for a couple of years, quit smoking completely November 30th 2015, yesterday didn’t pass a home test. Just ordered the 7 day Toxin Rid and the XXXtra clean drink and the free pre-clean pills that come with it. Looking to test next week on a day I choose. I ordered with next day shipping so I will start tomorrow using the Toxin Rid. Plan to test next Thursday or Friday. I’ll incorporate exercise and eat good throughout. I plan to home test before the real test, but in your opinion, should I be on the right track to be clean next week? Thank you for your web site, and the time it takes to keep current on these questions.

    • Hey Bob. Although the abstinence will certainly help you to have a decent chance of being clean after the detox, I wouldn’t say it’s guaranteed. Using potent stuff heavily for years, a lot will build up in the body and fat cells over time and it’s especially important with exercising and staying dehydrated (like you mention you will). It’s good that you already know to home test yourself before. If you fail and there’s no time, perhaps you should consider synthetic urine, which is the go-to for many heavy long-time users. But either way, let’s hope it does not come to that and that you’ll be clean from detoxing.

  26. Hi, thank you for all your helpful advice and information, I really appreciate it! I’m currently being drug tested regularly & randomly. I have not been smoking for 4+ months and took my last drug test two days ago and passed. I would like to smoke tonight only until my next drug test which should be within 2.5- 4 weeks. Besides the DEERS, & with money being an issue, do you think the 2 day toxin rid program would be enough? I’m 5’3; 110 pounds, eat fairly well and plan to be getting in a lot of exercise and water. Thank you so much please let me know what you recommend!!

    • I’m not sure if you meant smoking just 1 time, or smoking up until your next drug test. But I assume you meant just one time, and then I think the 2 day toxin rid would be fine, if even needed. It does come with a free home test kit though, which you should be getting one of if you don’t go for Toxin Rid, to know when you’re good. But with exercise and water, 3 weeks will be enough to get clean for most without products if it’s just a one time use.

  27. I just found out I have to take a drug test on Tuesday. I smoked twice this week Tuesday and Wednesday…I don’t smoke that often. I don’t plan on smoking till after the drug test.I have certo that I was going to use for a test that didn’t happen. I’ve been drinking a lot of water for the pass week. I was thinking of trying the certo and taking at home drug test to see if it works. Is there a method you recommend at home remedy or something inexpensive??

    • The most reliable yet economic way would be synthetic urine. There are good brands like Purine (see post on synthetic urine) that are good and a bit cheaper than SS. Certo does rely in part on dilution which means there’s always the risk that even if you test clean, it will be an invalid test due to dilution.

  28. Hi Sophie,
    Here’s the story: I hadn’t smoked in probably six months and then started smoking relatively heavily (~4-5 hits/day) in November. I stopped smoking on Jan 1, but had a relapse day on Jan 9 where I smoked less than a bowl over the course of the day. I just found out that I need to take a drug test to be transferred to a new contract. I can put it off until Jan 26, at the latest. What would you suggest? I’m female, on the heavy side (5’9″ and ~ 190lbs), but active (I run 3 miles about 3 times/week), and a well-hydrated healthy eater (no fast food, no sugar, no refined carbs). I’m hesitating to buy any type of detox solution because I’m not sure if it would be worth it, given my time-frame. Any help you could offer would be great.

    • Hi Mel, detox could work but as you mention, it’s no guarantee since the time you have is a bit on the short side for a heavy daily smoker. Ideally imo would be using synthetic urine, granted it’s an unsupervised test you’re taking, since heavy or light smoker makes no difference when substituting ones piss. If synthetic urine is out of question, only detox remains and you’ll have to make the best of it, and if you still test positive on home tests very close to your real test, then maybe go heavy on the dilution using 2 same day detox drinks, and hope for the best meaning either passing, or buying more time due to diluted sample.

  29. Hello. I have a drug test coming up Tuesday(Jan 19). I would be considered a heavy smoker, most of the time smoking reg. I haven’t smoked in 57 days. I used an at home drug test and had a very faint line, meaning I passed. What advice would you give to me? I thought about trying the certo method just to be sure. This is going to be the start of my career. Will I have a better chance using the certo method since I haven’t smoked in 57 days? (Will be close to 60 days when I take the drug test) I really need this job and any advice would be awesome. Thanks!!

    • It’s great that you’re passing home tests. If I were you I’d probably use a good same day detox drink at the day of the test and leave it at that.

  30. Hi,
    So I don’t burn very often, probably like half a bowl 1-3 a week. I found out I have a drug test coming up very soon for employment, but I smoked half a bowl 5 days ago. I went out and bought qcarbo20 clear. Do you think that is enough to mask it? Is there another precaution I could take? Like adding certo on top of doing the qcarbo? What would be the best instructions for this? I don’t know anyone that is completely clean that I’d be comfortable asking and the synthetic deal really worries me that I’ll get caught. Also, I just got over the flu and was on prescribed codeine but it’s been 5 days since I’ve taken that. Should I let them know up front about the prescription or just wait and see if it even shows up and explain it later? Please help!

    • At the very least I’d get some home test kits and see whether you’re passing or not that way. If you pass those, then the QCarbo is likely enough of a safety net, but if you fail those, a QCarbo20 is pretty risky imo. Best options is prolly a short Toxin Rid detox as well unless you think you’ll be clean naturally in time, since you’re not keen on synthetic urine. Adding certo on top of QCarbo can really over-dilute your urine, so be cautious of that (certo alone tend to do that as well) and if they test for that the sample may be invalid. As for prescription codeine, I think you can wait to see whether it shoes up at all first, otherwise it doesn’t really matter.

      • Hi Sophie,
        Thanks for your reply! So I didn’t have enough time for shipping to order anything online before my test. I bought a few at home test kits from Walgreens. I took one and got the faintest line that you could barely see, did the qcarbo20 (drank 20 oz of water, waited 20 minutes, drank the qcarbo and the pills it came with, waited 20 minutes, and drank 20 oz of water). I took another at home test after that and had a questionable negative (line was still faint). I then immediately went in to take my pre-employment drug test. I got the results 4 days later: DILUTED. I thought I was good but now I have to take a re-test on Monday. I still haven’t smoked, so I’ll be 12 days clean on Monday. Because it’s Friday, I still don’t have time for shipping and stupidly didn’t prepare to retake the test just in case. I took an at home drug test again today and the result is still a very faint line. I don’t trust that I’m clean naturally, so what should I do over the next 3 days to prepare to pass? If I even have the chance? I bought Mega Clean, but I’m not sure how to use it without getting the result “diluted” again. Please help me out as I really need this job. thanks!

        • Hey, for what it’s worth a diluted test is of course way better than a failed one at least. There is always synthetic urine if your test is unsupervised, but other than that, knowing it was too diluted last time, go a little easier on the amount of total water. If you drink a lot during the day in general up until it’s time for the detox drink, that can easily add up to become too diluted.

  31. Hi Sophie,

    First off, thank you so much for this website, I’ve been researching this heavily the past few days. My husband believes he’ll be tested for a job soon, so he’s stopped smoking. He’s a heavy smoker and has stopped for about a week. He’s thin and has a very high metabolism, and I’ve been making him drink tons of water. I’ve stopped smoking about 16 days ago, but I’ve only had half a joint, and I’ve had one bowl every weekend for about 3 weeks prior to that. I’ve been drinking a ton of water recently, for my own reasons, so I’m fairly sure that I’m naturally clean. I’m considering giving my urine to my husband, but I want to make sure I’m clean first. What brand of home tests do you recommend? I’ve read some reviews on Amazon saying some products give false negatives/positives in control tests, or are just inconsistent. Also, what does he need to do to make sure that my urine will remain at the right temperature for his test? Thanks again!

    • Hi Carmen, my pleasure.
      I recommend some imo decent home tests from Amazon on the homepage, but overall most of the tests are fine and pretty accurate. I would rather think inconsitency of results is due to time of day for testing. The first urine in the morning is not good for testing since toxins will have built up over night and thus more likely to test positive. If you drink a lot during the day, this will dilute it more and may lead to a previous positive result now showing negative etc. I think you’re naturally clean by now as well, but better safe than sorry so testing is the right step to take. Get some hand warmers as well as keeping it in contact with your skin and it should stay the right temp, same as with most synthetic urines. But having a thermometer is definitely recommended as well to be safe.

  32. Can I pass a drug test after not using for nine or ten days not a heavy user

    • If it was a one-time use or you’re an occassional smoker at most, you certainly can. But always best to test yourself with a home test still to be sure.

  33. I used urine-lock, and failed a DT I must have done something wrong. I did not drink enough water I don’t think. I never urinated prior to using it. Did I use it properly, evidently not please advise whether this product works if properly used. Please let me know via e-mail

    • Not familiar with Urinelock for drug tests, had to Google to know what product you meant. So can’t give any advice about it I’m afraid. Not sure why you think it would work though.

  34. I have followed your suggestions with using toxin rid and one shot concentrate. I’m almost positive my test would have showed up clean without the same day detox but wanted to be safe. My test was for getting into nursing school, and I don’t know all of the tests they’ll be putting it through. I am worried that the same day detox might show up as me trying to mask something. Will this drink show up that way? Ph levels possibly? I’d love to start smoking again since I already did the test, but I’m wondering if I should stay clean until I’m sure they don’t question my sample.

    • Nah it really shouldn’t show up that way, and as with most good detox drinks it’s taken measures to avoid making your urine diluted, which takes optimizing pH among other things into account. But still I’d definitely wait with starting to smoke until you know for sure. Would be a shame if you just started smoking and learn they want a re-test for whatever reason.

  35. Question, If my test strip line is pink and not a darker purple as the control line, will my thc line become darker over time, ive not used for almost 3 months now and curious if the test line gets darker over more time abstaining? thanks

    • Different home tests work differently so I think it’s best to read the instructions carefully and if they don’t answer your question maybe bring the question to the manufacturers.

  36. Do you have any experience or information on the brand Synthetix5?

  37. I smoke once maybe twice a day (about 2 grams a week of quality stuff) and I have a drug test in 10 days, that I just found out about today. I am drinking lots of water and taking vitamins. I am very worried about passing. I’m 5’5 145 and I am active and eat decently. Suggestions please

    • Granted it’s unsupervised, synthetic urine is definitely what I’d go for in your case since you’re a pretty heavy/daily smoker. Being able toetoxi in 10 days for heavy users is never guaranteed and depends a lot on your individual body and metabolism, as well as detox efforts and products used. I doubt lots of water and vitamins will cut it in this case, but you can always use a home test kit to check. Make sure though that you haven’t been drinking loads of water, or the home test may show clean only because of over-dilution. Don’t use the first stream of the day either, since toxins build up and are more concentrated, so it can give a misleading reading. Again though, easiest would be to just go for synthetic urine right away if applicable.

  38. I looked up Toxin Rid on the Test Clear website. What’s the difference between the products since some are 1 day detox, 4 day, 7 days, 10 days etc. Do some work better than others or what? Why is it that its more expensive for the ones that take longer to detox for example the 1 day detox is prettt much $55 while the 10 day is almost $200?? If u can help me out that would be great. Thanks.

    • Yep the longer detoxes are more effective, the heavier a smoker you are, the longer detox you’d need to clear the system. In reality, detox takes time. Your body needs to clear your body of all the toxin metabolites, and it’s not an instantaneous process. This is why same-day detox drinks can only attempt to hide the toxins (and all too often unsuccessfully so, depending on how close you are to being clean already), since sufficient detox where enough the toxins actually leave your body won’t happen in a few hours.

  39. hey, just looking for a quick solution, i found out friday i will be having a urine test at a job interview on tuesday, i had a few hits on my friends joint wednesday & thursday, prior to that i didnt smoke anything for a couple of weeks and even then it was just a few hits every now and then, since i found out about the drug test i have being drinking lots of water and some cranberry juice, do you think ill pass or have you got any other suggestions that could help? thanks

    • Hey, best way imo would probably be to just get some synthetic urine if it’s unsupervised, or otherwise at least get a home test kit to test yourself before, and maybe a decent same day detox drink as a safety net either way. It’s possible you’ll be clean until then naturally but risky so better make sure with a home test or substitute.

  40. I finished the 10 day detox program from Test Clear two days ago, and just took an at home drug test (FirstCheck) tonight. The results came back positive. I have been clean for 16 days. Prior to that I was a heavy user, smoking at least once daily (small bowl packs). I purchased the Mega Clean Detox drink from Test Clear as well. I have to go in to start paperwork for an internship tomorrow. I know I will be drug-tested prior to the internship starting, but am worried they are going to drug test me tomorrow, although they did not specify that would be taking place. To be on the safe side, I was going to use the Mega Clean drink prior to going in. Do you think that drinking the Mega Clean drink will be enough to cover up whatever THC is left in my system? I imagine my THC levels are pretty high still if the test came back positive though. I am unsure if I should try to come up with an excuse to post-pone my going in tomorrow for the paperwork, or chance it with the Mega Clean drink. Any suggestions or insight would be most welcome…I’m very worried!

    • Hey Rae. For really heavy users it’s never guaranteed you can detox in that short amount of time no matter what you do, icnce THC will have built up in your body’s fat sells and then gets released in to your blood slowly over time. Therefore heavy users often prefer going straight for synthetic urine if they have less than 3-4 weeks time to detox, and it’s then also important to exercise and drink a lot of fluids to aid faster detox. I’m not fond of using just a same day detox drink when one still is positive on a home test since it’s not too reliable. It will better your odds for sure, but there’s still the risk of failing, depending on how close to that cut-off limit you are before. You can’t know your exact level from a home test though, since it only really shows whether your over or under that limit, not how farm from it you are. Best imo if it’s unsupervised would be synthetic urine.

  41. I took 2 hits of a joint (mid-grade) Saturday night, and found out I have a drug test on Wednesday. I was told the weed was old, but I don’t know if that has anything to do with a DT. I drank water on Sunday but not a whole lot since I was not aware of the test until today (Monday). After finding out, I started to drink a lot of water. I plan to go work out two times tomorrow, still consuming a lot of water, then taking an at home drug test on Wednesday morning before the test that afternoon. The last time I smoked before Saturday was 3 1/2 months ago. Do you have any other advice? Do you personally think I’m safe for the test on Wednesday? Kind of freaking out a little; just my luck.

    • I am also about 5’3 and 135 pounds, if that helps with your answer

    • This reply isn’t in time for that test but either way, since you’ve been clean for so long before that, it can be considered a one-time use (and a small one, at that). This would mean there’s a possibility you’d already be clean in time naturally, although a few more days of abstinence would hav ebeen preferred imo. But you’re doing the right thing in testing yourself before. I think a same day detox drink alone in this case would be very good, since we’re talking such small amounts of THC. I think you’re safe yes, especially if you test negative on your home test before, and even moreso if you’d use a same-day detox drink.

  42. My situation is this. I have smoked daily for about 7 months before I lost my job about two months ago and have been the job hunt ever since. I decided to stop smoking on New Years Eve and have been sober for about 30 days now as well as a water cleanse and taking cranberry supplements. However this weekend I slipped and did about a gram of cocaine and smoked a couple puffs of res. I know that res contains more THC than a bowl of green and I am wondering if the cocaine will affect detection of THC. I am nervous I won’t pass a urine test if I have to give a sample next week (1-2 weeks after my slip up). What do you think and what is the best option for a guaranteed negative all around?

    • I don’t think the Cocaine will effect detection of THC noticable, but that doesn’t mean you’ll be clean still, since it often takes more than a month to get clean naturally if you’ve been a daily smoker for a long time. Add to this you slip with the resin also. You could always get some home test kits to get a better hang of whether you’re clean or not yet, although the odds are that you’re not. Best options imo are what’s already laid out on the page above. You either go for a heavy detox with Toxin Rid, exercise, lots of fluids, a same day drink on the day of the test. Or, if unsupervised, you could get away with a good brand of synthetic urine.

  43. Hey Sophie’
    Great site and a wealth of information. I smoke on occasion and am very fit for my age. I really never had to drug test but was recently offered a job that requires one. I last smoked on 1/18/26 and took a couple of hits. I will probably have to test next week and decided to do the 3 day Toxin Rid and mega clean same day because of timing. I work out regularly and eat healthy and have been doing extra cardio. I have tested myself and it came out negative but will keep on testing. I don’ want to take any chances. The only thing I could do differently is to take a longer detox but the kit comes in on Monday and I will probably test by Thursday or Friday at the earliest since I haven’t had the Lab scheduled yet. That puts me at 24 day since I last smoked and if I can schedule later than that great. My question is, does this sound reasonable since I am testing negative right now and can any of the Toxin Rid or mega clean be detected in your system as a masking agent?
    Thanks I appreciate any advice or feedback.

    Shawn

    • Hey Shawn. Yeah sounds very reasonable imo, since you’re just an occasional smoker. It’s a good sign that you’re testing negative already and then the 3-day detox should be more than enough, just make sure you’re not testing when you’ve been drinking loads of water before in the same day, since that may cause passing due to dilution. And no they can’t be detected, just be careful not to drink a lot of other fluids as well since it adds up and can make your sample too diluted. Mega Clean already has a lot of fluid in it, likely optimized so that you shouldn’t be drinking other fluids in close proximity to it.

      • I use to smoke every day all the time for like 6 months then stopped for almost a month and a half I smoked once the end of January and have to pass a drug test the end of February. It’s been technically 4 weeks from that day to the day of my test that I smoked. Should I be okay for a blood and urine test.

        • For blood definitely ok, for urine, it’s likely but not guaranteed, and you probably want to take an at home test at least to see whether you pass that or not. If you don’t you’re still very likely to be close to the cut-off since you do have a long time of abstinence, so probably wouldn’t take too much to get clean.

  44. I have a DT coming up on April 6th. Its a 10 panel and i think they test at 20 ng/ml. Im 34 yo male 6″2 and 175 lbs and have been smoking or eating edibles daily for around a year, so def would consider myself a heavy user. I have not used anything since Jan. 9th so I should have 89 days clean when i do my test. I was exercising about 3 times a week and dieting for the first 3 weeks as well as doing coffee enemas almost daily and drinking lots of fluids. Then i found out i have a inguinal hernia and it slowed me down and my diet fell back to too much pizza. I also have been taking niacin daily at around 1000mg as well as taking milk thistle twice a day. I bought toxin rids 10 day detox and am going to take it starting March 1st and plan to buy the same day product you mentioned. It is super important i pass the DT so what do you think? should i be ok or sub? i have to admit it been keeping me up at night and freaking me out completely. thanks so much for your help!

    • Hey Green. You will have had about 3 months, which is a long time for detox, and when you also add a 10 day Toxin Rid here along with a little natural detox habits, it should most certainly be enough time, no matter the amount you smoked or how slow metabolism you may have. Still, you could use an home test 10 days or so before the test just to know, and if you for some unlikely reason shouldn’t be clean, then consider subbing. I don’t think it will come to that though, as long as you keep abstaining and don’t slip back.

  45. Hey Sophie,
    I am a occasional smoker, 1-2 shared joints a week,sometimes less, I am being offered a great job where i will be drug tested, supervised, so synthetic pee is not a option for me. I am 5’4, 150 lbs and mid-teens, I exercise 1-2 times weekly, drink plenty of water and eat fairy well. I only smoke low-grade weed and haven’t smoked since Saturday. i will probably be drug tested in a month and can not afford most detoxes, what should i do to insure a passed drug test?

    • I also will starting running a mile a day up until two days before the test. Should i take niacin?

      • Sounds good. You can take niacin, but don’t expect it to do wonders, and see it rather as one small piece of the detox puzzle. If you don’t already have niacin at home, I wouldn’t buy it just to detox.

    • Hey Rebecca, I’d say as such an occasional smoker, there’s a good chance you’re clean naturally in a months time. Personally I prefer to do a Toxin Rid either way, just to be extra cautious, but in your case, especially budget is an issue as in this case, I really think you’ll be fine without it. I would however put some extra effort to exercising and sweating, drinking more water daily and so on until the test. Definitely get some cheap home test kits as well to see whether you’re good or not before the real test as well.

  46. Sophie,

    I went on vacation two weeks ago. For 10 days I smoked every evening. Prior to that I took edibles here and there, but nothing consistent and about a week or two apart. I’m 6’5, 330lbs. I haven’t partaken in anything for a week. I will be starting the detox in a few days after receiving it. I’ve started eating healthy and walking/running a mile or two a day. I have a drug test in a few weeks and I was wondering which is the best course of action. Please let me know. Thank you.

    • Hey Mark. May depend a bit on how much and the potency of what you did smoke every night. Big difference between a puff, a bowl or several bowls when it comes to how much that builds up in your system. If it wasn’t a whole lot per night, detox will probably suffice since you have a few weeks, but as always make sure to check using home tests before, and if applicable use synthetic urine as a backup plan, shuld you not be clean when your real test is almost here.

  47. Sophie
    I have a problem. I have to pass a urine test in two weeks at probation. I need your help. What can I do?

    • I’m afraid I don’t give advice specifically for probational tests, due to laws, although they’re similar to any drug test in most other aspects except it more commonly being observed/supervised.

  48. Hello, my question is i haven’t smoked in like three months an due to the supperbolw i smoked maybe three hits of the bong, i just got word that i will need to dt this coming up thursday, i since i have somked i’ve been drinking lots of water an juice, i’ve not smoked since then do you feel that i should get ready clean?

    • Hi Shawn, I’d think you’re already clean naturally by now and wouldn’t need it. If I were you I’d probably get a cheap home drug test and if you pass that, no need for a detox drink.

  49. Hi,
    I have a urine drug test on Monday and I need a bit of advice whether I might pass the test or not.
    I’ve been smoking everyday for the past 3 or 4 months but nothing heavy, really really tiny amount in cigarettes sized spliffs with much more tobacco than weed. Me and my partner we can smoke 2 gram per month maybe less.

    I haven’t smoke for the 6 days, and have been drinking 3litres of water a day, I also have been drinking a 7day superfood cleanse which is a mix of dandelion, milk thistle and aloe Vera detox and loads of spirulina and drank hot water with 3 lemons as well.

    I never exercise. I am 5’3′, I’m a tiny girl, weight 114pounds (52kg), never been overweight and i don’t gain weight as well,I’m not fat at all and I’m in good shape overall and I never eat junk food and eat lots of fruits (mainly bananas, mandarins). Also I have been to steam rooms for the past 2 days during 30 min each day to sweat the thc out.

    What are my chances ?

    Thank you 🙂

    • Hey, I don’t like chances questions very much since it’s so individual how long detoxing takes. Your test is done by now though I imagine but I’ll attempt an answer anyways in case someone else may benefit in the future. Even if it’s tiny amount, it still adds up over time since it’s every day so I’d probably still consider it moderate bordering heavy user. All these natural superfoods etc is hard to know how much of an effect they actually have, although they certainly help some. My gut tells me you won’t be clean by that time, although it wouldn’t take much more, and in this case it’s possible a good detox drink would be all it takes to pass, and I think you’d be clean enough if only you had say another week or so. But this is a hard estimate to do so again, take it with a big grain of salt, and rather get some home test kits and see what those say before taking the real test.

  50. Question: I have an employment “physical” coming up next week, which I assume will involve a drug test. I am a heavy smoker and only have about 5 days to detox. I am going to drink a stinger detox drink as a backup method, but My original plan was to use quick fix synthetic urine, but since it’s a physical I don’t know if they will make me get into a robe, and if so I’ll have no where to hide the quick fix. If they made me do that I was going to try to pour the quick fix into a smaller container and hide that. Now my question is if I don’t have enough of the synthetic stuff, and I mixed some of my own pee with the synthetic, will they be able to tell? I’m Hoping if I do need to use some of my own pee it will have a negligible Amount of the when mixed with the quick fix. Opinion??? Thank you!

    • Not sure. On paper it sounds ok to mix, so as a last resort it could be worth a try, but I’d definitely prefer just having enough synthetic urine to start with. Mixing with enough synthetic urine should lower the concentration enough not to fail the test since it dilutes your real urine, but since I haven’t tried it I can’t comment on whether they mix effortlessly or if someone would be able to tell.

  51. Hi Sophie, thank you for this site. I have a possible test tomorrow. I smoked last week probably 6 blunts between two people mid and high grade stuff. I’m very out of shape. 5’5 230. I was clean before this for two months. I already passed a test after 2 weeks of being clean( I was a moderate/heavy smoker) before this with water, green tea, coffee, and a red bull. I’m nervous about this test though…any suggestions? Its a supervised urine dip stick test. No money for ANYTHING…

    • Hi Jessie, test will be done already by now but, with no time, no money, and it’s supervised, the best options I see is, get a cheap drug test and see if you’re clean enough or not. If not, go for dilution to hopefully buy you some time for another test. Beats failing.

  52. Hello, I had been a relatively heavy smoker up until a month or so ago (a bowl or so a night), and have been occasional user ever since, like once a week maybe. I have a DT coming up, it is not clear yet when but no less then in a week or two and i was wondering if i had any chance of passing by natural detoxes such as water, exercise, etc.

    • Possibly, hard to say, would depend mostly on what relatively heavy use means in this case. For really heavy and long time users, it’s not that unusual to still test positive after 1,5-2 months abstinence unless putting some real effort in detox. You can use home test kits to check for yourself at different time and decide from there how you want to go about it. Too hard to say for me if natural detox could suffice in your case, especially since you also have been smoking occasionally since ad not completely abstained.

  53. Hello,

    I recently began using a vape pen daily for about a month and have a test 21 days from stopping vaping. I am doing DEERS and a 5 day detox cleanse. Is there anything else that you would recommend doing if it is a supervised test other than a same day drink? How do my odds look?

    Thanks,
    Bob

    • If you used a lot daily, as opposed to just a little, it could get a little tight imo, getting clean in time. 10 day detox would have been preferred, but still might get tight if you used a lot daily during that month. Synthetic urine would been ideal though, if you hadn’t mentioned supervision. You’re doing it right though so not much to change. You can test yourself before with a home test kit of course if you plan to adjust your plan should it be positive. Last option, should you be positive the day before the test and it’s supervised, would be to try to deliberately dilute it to possibly buy a few more days (not guaranteed this will be the case though, but might still be better to have it inconclusive rather than failed due to THC).

  54. My question is I am struggling on which exact day amount of TOXIN RID to purchase. I am what you would I’d say call a heavy smoker (usually 3-5 joints atleast of regular grade) a day. Last month I actually purchased the 4 day Toxin Rid and actually smoked 2 days into my detox process and finished the last (fiber/water) step the day of about 2 1\2 hrs before my test. I took the at home test and my result line for THC was so extremely faint that it literally took straining to even be able to see the partial outline of a line. So I went ahead and took 4 water purifing pills to be safe. Anyways, my probation officer didn’t end up drug testing me once I got there. But, I most definitely want to be as cautious and smart as possible this month. I have almost 16 days exactly before I’m to see him again. Yes, I know and understand the smartest thing is to quit and stay away from it altogether until the PO visits/drug tests are finished. But, ANY FEEDBACK would be SO GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!! I’m a female around 5′ 11″ tall, 145 pds, BMI is around 18.50, and rather fast metabolism. My only downfall is I haven’t had the time to exercise for the sweat, but will MOST DEFINITELY somehow find the time too if it be important to do that. Am just extremely curious on what route as far as the day length of detox I should go?? Would I possibly be alright to purchase the 7 day detox and just add an extra day making it an 8 day detox, or do I need to get the 10 day detox? Any suggestions, comments, replies GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!! Thanks so much!!!!

    • Hey, I don’t give advice specific to probational tests due to laws and that it could get me into trouble. So I’m afraid all I could say here is that probational tests aren’t very different from regular pre-employment tests and there is a lot of info about regular tests on this site already. In general, for heavy users the 10 day detox is almost always preferred, since it can take a lot to get THC out of the system quickly, and still it’s never guaranteed, since it can remain in fat cells and be released over time.

  55. Thank you, this website is incredible, your awesome taking the time to answer these questions! I had one last question. I often use ibogaine to battle depression and generally stay in better shape physically and mentally. I have looked around and spoke to people about ibogaine and DTs but cannot find an exact answer. Do you think it would show up as a false positive or in any other way in an extended 10 or 12 panel test? thanks again sophie you rock

    • Hey Green, got no idea actually. Haven’t heard anything about it being tested for or messing with results, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that’s the case. If

  56. Hi Sophie! First thank you for maintaining this blog, so far I’ve read some helpful information however only one comment that was comparable to my scenario. I am a 60 y.o. female with severe lumbar stenosis (disc degeneration) so I’ve been taking prescribed Morphine for quite a while together with a couple of other meds that assist in reducing pain. Of course the pain management specialist I have been seeing insists that he had better not see anything in my urine other than what he prescribed. I usually smoke several times /day (am anxiously awaiting Maryland to be a medicinal state), am only 5’2″ and weigh about 165 lbs…and I’m mostly sedentary due to pain. I can’t use synthetic since the meds need to show up but I’m wondering if I use Tox Rid (where do I get it? Amazon?) can I pass when I get tested on 3/16 especially since I have to keep taking the meds? If not “clean”, the doctor will throw me out the door and I need the meds. Now if medicinal was legal here I’d be fine because I’d have a card and he could kiss my grits. Do you think Tox Rid is my answer? Suggestions? Please and thank you SO much!!

    • Hi Cynthia, my pleasure!

      It’s a tricky scenario though, because when you smoke several times daily, enough THC usually builds up in the fat cells that you can’t get clean very fast no matter what you do, including potent detox products. So realistically, even with the 10 day Toxin Rid and good detoxing habits of exercise, diet, liquids etc, many very heavy users still need a month or more. So although it would certainly help, it’s not a guarantee in this time span by any means. If you test positive on a home test soon before your real test, perhaps consider trying to dilute it heavily so it’s inconclusive/not accepted (likely better than failed in htis scenario).

  57. I don’t smoke that often. I smoked 4 days ago hit a blunt twice, and before that had hit a blunt 2 sperate times over the weekend which was about 1 month before this last time. I just want to detox my system completely I’m not even sure if I’m gonna be drug tested in just being cautious. Will the ultimate eliminex herbal cleanse work to clean my system perm? I’m not looking for a one time use kinda thing I want something permanent?

    • Hey Maria. Ultimate Eliminex is more of a detox drink and thus, although it will help with general detox, it’s main purpose would be to mask toxins right before the test, rather than to help actually expel the toxins. Since you’re such an occasional smoker though, when it comes to a test, if you have 2 weeks of abstinence, you’d likely already be clean naturally. Always best practice to confirm with a home test kit though. If you want to use a product to detox the system, my favorite is as mentioned already the Toxin Rid. For an occasional msoker like yourself a shorter course would definitely be sufficient.

  58. So, I’m deciding on whether or not I can get clean enough to pass a test or if I should just bite the bullet and get some synthetic urine for an unsupervised test for a job. Some info: the test is in 12 days or so, and I last smoked about 2 days ago. I’m 6’1″ and ~260 lbs, but I have a muscular build and am not obese but I’ve got a bit of a tummy. Prior to learning about the test I smoked on average 4 or so days a week, usually good stuff. My plan was to eat well, sit in a sauna about 4 hours a day, drink tons of water, then on the day of the test try to dilute/use pectin to pass. Think it might be enough? I’d rather not use the 10 day detox given its cost. Should I just go for the synthetic?

    • I would go for the synthetic. At the very least have a home test kit before the real one if you are considering detox. Dilution is never a good option since the majority of tests will show it’s diluted and won’t accept the sample, although sometimes it works.

  59. I just purchased the Toxin Rid 5 day program. I have a pre-employment drug test that I might have to take in 4 days, (I am trying to put it off). I am 6′ and weigh 200 lbs. I was a daily smoker of regular weed until about a week and a half ago. What are the chances this will work if I take it with sure gel the day of the test.

    • Firstly, as a regular smoker with this little time to get clean, I’d definitely prefer synthetic urine for this one. I’d say it’s pretty risky, although the Certo (on top of the detox with Toxin Rid) could very well dilute your urine enough so that the THC isn’t detected, at the cost of risking an invalid sample due to over-dilution, which most tests today check for. Overall hard to say so please do update with how it went.

  60. Hi. I recently went clean for about 2 months. Before that I was an occasional smoker. Like 2 times per week. After the 2 months clean I smoked something like 1 joint over a 6 day period. A couple hits per day. I will be about 23 days clean by the time I do the DT. I have been doing Bikram yoga, running, cut out all sugar, meat, dairy since the last smoke. I’ve also lost 10 pounds since the last smoke. I’ve have passed a couple of at home tests as well. What do you think?

    • You’re far from a heavy smoker for sure and thus those 23 days combined with your yoga and weight loss etc it sounds to me like you should be clean naturally after those 23 days. And since you’ve passed a couple of home tests as well, I wouldn’t worry about it. just keep in mind when using home tests that you don’t want to have consumed excessive amounts of liquid before, since as with a real test, that may dilute your sample too much and give a false negative.

  61. Here’s my situation, it might be a bit unique considering the quantity most users smoke. I just moved to a state who’s a bit more intolerant of weed than the last state I lived, and I need to find a job. Fast. I know for a fact that a few prospective employers will be asking for a drug screen in the coming weeks, if not days. A few years ago I used to smoke A LOT but since then, I cut down A LOT, which led to my tolerance greatly lowering. So much to the point that it only takes less than a pinky-nail-sized amount of ground bud to get me high…I’m talking like 1/15 of a gram, maybe less. I typically smoke that once a day, sometimes twice. In your opinion, how long would you expect it to be out of my system if I follow a moderate diet, exercise, fluids regimen? I know most users have medium to high tolerances and they see results within 3-4 weeks, but do you think with the amount I’ve smoked it could be less? I’d rather not spend the little money I have on detox aids!

    Thanks for the advice! This site is great.

    • Hi Dan. These questions are always tugh to give an accurate answer to since so many factors play a part. It will be an educated guess at best. Even though you only smoke a little per time, doing it daily does add up. I’d probably say about 3-4 weeks sounds reasonable for you as well. Those that smoke daily and also heavier, often take well over a month if going the natural route in my experience. In your situation I can definitely see you don’t want to spend your last money on detox products, and thus the best options would imo be to at least get a pack of cheap home test kits off Amazon, so you can know when you’re good or not, or if a test is very soon, go with synthetic urine, which is definitely more affordable than proper detox is, and also more reliable on short notice since pre-employment tests are usually unsupervised.

  62. Hi, So I have a possible drug test coming up in May and I’ve stopped smoking (Regular, maybe a blunt a day for a couple of months) since last week, if I continue to follow DEERs leading up to May would I be able to pass naturally?

    • Also I’m 5’10 170 with a fast metabolism

    • I think so yes. You were a pretty heavy smoker but you will also have had over 2 months of abstinence, which is often about what’s needed for heavy users to get clean naturally. So as long as you put some real effort into DEERS you’re likely fine. Still, if I were you I’d get a bunch of home tests kit off Amazon to make sure you’re good when the real test closes in. That’s always a best practice and can’t be stressed enough since it’s also very affordable.

  63. Hi there,

    I hadn’t smoked in over a year. Then smoked pretty much all day everyday for about two weeks. Now I have about 15 days to get clean for a urine exam. What are your thoughts? I am a very very healthy chap.

    • Very hard to say if it’s enough time for detox or not, since every day for 2 weeks builds to a lot. If not supervised I’d probably go with synthetic urine right away, and if that’s not an option then go all in on detox.

  64. I only smoked a couple times here recently and I have a drug test coming up in a few weeks I’m an active person and this is my first time smoking over 4 months and even then it was only a blunt I never used detox products before and would like an idea to how they’ll be

    • With your infrequent use, and since you got a few weeks, I think detox products wouldn’t be necessary in your case. Do however consider some home test kits to make sure you’re clean. As for how they’re like, the actual detox products such as Toxin Rid are a bit laxative and diuretic so you may notice you need to use the bathroom more. Some also become more energetic and feel better on them, since detoxing aids general health as well and it’s not targeting THC exclusively.

  65. Hi

    So I’m a moderate smoker, maybe a small bowl 2 times a week and I stopped smoking about 3 days ago. If I purchase the 5 day detox and do a same day detox drink should I be clean? I may be able to push out my test by a couple days, so I might be able to do the 7 day detox if you feel that would strengthen my chances.

    • Sounds to me like you’d be clean by that since you’re only a moderate smoker, but we’re all different so not guaranteed. Since a few days in this case could mean a big difference, pushing the test a few days as well would be a good idea imo.

  66. Hi Sophie,

    Thanks for this site! I was hoping for your input real quick so I can make a decision on what to do. I just had an initial interview for a job that will literally double my income. It was completely unexpected as they found my resume on one of the job sites I use. They did not mention drug tests but it is common for my industry to do an initial urine test. I smoke roughly a bowl per evening with my girlfriend, sometimes a little more, usually much less (we typically do a small pinch of ground weed in a gravity to conserve). We have done this regularly since Christmas Eve and the product is better than mid but not top of the line primo. I was looking at the Sub Solution as a good option but wanted to see when the last time you used it (or anyone else) was to make sure it is still up to date and viable.

    In the past, I have successfully passed multiple drug test using the fruit pectin, B12, niacin, cranberry and dilution methods, as well as ceasing physical activity and just devouring tons of fatty bacon and burgers (layer new, clean fat on top of the old, dirty fat so it takes longer to pass into the urine), in as short of notice as 24 hours and as long of notice as 3 days. I really don’t want to do this again because 1) the pectin/dilution kicks your butt and 2) I’ve been working on my health and stuffing my face with bacon isn’t in the plan.

    Based on this information, what would you suggest? Do you think I should do a system detox + same day detox and just double up some of the doses as you have done in the past whilst taking some other flushing measures or should I utilize the synthetic? I am 190 pounds, 28 years old just shy of 66 ft. The last time I smoked was last night and it was half a loose bowl pack split with my girlfriend. I am not sure when the test will be but I am willing to bet money it will be this coming week, probably Monday or Tuesday, POSSIBLY later same week if they don’t object to my working those days.

    Thanks in advance, M

    • Hey Mark, no probs! Been getting a lot of questions lately and been pretty busy wiht other stuff also so couldn’t reply that quickly I’m afraid. SS is still up to date yeah. With this short time, and you being such a frequent user, I’d definitely go with synthetic urine unless it’s supervised. Hopefully it went well for you.

  67. Thanks for your web site
    Do the labs have anyway to detect the synthetic urine?
    My tests are unsupervised and I have arthuritis and and I live in a state where it’s not medically prescribed. Would freezing urine be better?
    Thanks

    • No probs TJ!
      Not if it’s a good formula which thus would include all the ingredients they would be able to test for to determine if it’s synthetic. Check out my guide on the topic if you haven’t already.
      Can’t see how freezing urine would be better than synthetic. If clean urine is all that’s needed the results will be pretty much the same just less convenient using real frozen urine imo. Cheaper though. Don’t forget heaters and a thermometer etc though.

  68. Sophie, Thank you for this website! I decided to follow your advice but only had/have a week to detox. I’m on the 3rd day of the 7 day Toxin Rid Program and have a test either next Thursday or Friday. I have a question. The Toxin Rid instructions say not to drink anything else on the last day (or day of test) between the Detox Liquid and Detox Fiber. But I have the Mega Clear you suggested, is it ok to drink that? I think I’m just getting worried/overwhelmed trying to make sure I do everything correctly. Should I get all the pills, liquid and fiber done early that day and go to the test in the afternoon and drink the Mega clear before I go? I will have a 48 hour window to get to the testing center. Any advice would be hlpeful. Thank you!

    • Hey Jackie, my pleasure :). Lots of comments lately so haven’t been able to reply to them all in time, but since someone else may find this useful still.. Depending on how heavy a smoker you were, when you only got a weeks time it’s sometimes best to go with synthetic urine. That being said, with Toxin Rid I usually finish my course before the actual test day, using the same day drink on the day of the test. They can be combined though, but it’s important then to watch how much liquid in total you consume, as to not cause an over-diluted sample. So it may be wise to decrease the liquid used with the Detox Liquid and fiber and let the detox drink (in this case Mega Clean) make up for some of it.

  69. Hey Sophie,
    Hadn’t smoked for 6 months, I went to Colorado March 3-5 and smoked a regularly while there along with a few edibles. I have a test April 14. Haven’t smoked since and have been eating clean, working out, drinking lots of water. Do you think I will be ok to pass without any detox drink? I am 5’2 about 118 pounds. Thanks!!

    • Hey Ana, I would think so yes, but you never know. Since it was just for 2 days, the nearly 1,5 months of abstinence should be enough, especially with your healthy lifestyle. But still you may want to consider a home test kit beofore the real one to make sure and rule out any big, not so pleasant surprises in your results. Then if you don’t pass the home test (which you probably will) you go from there, perhaps considering synthetic urine or possibly a detox product if there is still some time.

  70. Hello,
    I recently found out that I will have to take a test for an upcoming job I applied for. Im not sure when the test will be given so I wanted to try and get a head start on quitting and detoxing my system. I was wondering if the toxin rid actually clears most of the thc out of my system for good or mainly just masks it. I just dont want to start the process to soon and fail the test. Thank you

    • Hi Maria,
      it mainly clears it out for good, which is why it’s fine to take it whenever, as long as you don’t smoke again before your test. It’s important to keep in mind though that for heavy long time users, THC will have built up in fat cells and then takes time to be released back in to the system, and in these cases no product can clear your system in just a week or 10 days, although they definitely speed the process up.

  71. I have a different question than most, I have an issue I may be tested because of, yes, it’s a legal matter. BUT, it’s only for a counseling group I have to go to and spend a lot of court scam cash on. If I fail a screen there, all it will do is cost me money because I will have to do more classes. I have money if I need it for one failure for sure and I really don’t want to stop smoking, it’s the only thing that stop my REAL (not doctor prescribed) ADHD from ruining my life. I smoke heavily, daily is an understatement and it ain’t reggie. So what I was wondering is, if I took the Toxin Rid stuff non-stop while I’m smoking will it do anything? will it make me sick with constant use? Can I do a 10 day detox every 2 days and will it do anything? hope you are getting my point… and by the way, nice blog… useful

    • Hey Dave, I definitely get your point, but legal matters are still legal matters no matter how small, so to not get into any trouble I don’t give advice specifically for such tests still.

      In general though, detoxing while smoking, although it would certainly prevent some of the THC build-up, for a heavy user it wouldn’t keep the system clean enough. Abstinence is often a necessary part of detox, and why very heavy users can need a long time to get completely clean even when putting a lot of effort into detox methods. So, I guess it would help slightly, but would be an expensive habit in it’s own right and not worth it imo cost-to-benefit wise.

  72. So I’m not much of a smoker at all, my friends do it on the regular so I may occasionally do it with them when I feel I need to. I recently took a pre-employment test for Sears and I was amazed that I passed with flying colors! I was surprised because I smoked in Miami for spring break about a week before, I didn’t use detox or anything but I drank juice and water every day prior. Of course results may vary for everyone but I guess not being a heavy user helped a ton.

    • Yeah not being a heavy user is a real game-breaker when it comes to getting clean fast. It’s actually not uncommon at all for one-time or very infrequent users to be clean naturally in a week.


  73. The unaccepted answer:

    Fire is mostly warmer than ice but then there’s icyheat ™, is this a trick question?

    Do you sell synthetic urine because it’s the most used phrase on this page, Sophie?

    • Lol, I’d go with what’s mostly right here.

      Personally I prefer detox over synthetic urine. Synthetic urine has it’s uses for sure though, mainly if you don’t have time to detox.

  74. I’ve been smokin for a 2months now, like a gar every other day but do I might get tested tomorrow, do you think diurex water pills and niacin will help me get clean by tomorrow 1pm if I started taking it the day before they drug test me, and if I drink certo 2hours before the test ?

    • Definitely sounds very risky to me, but if you’re lucky enough that your test doesn’t check for over-dilution, you may pass due to that using the certo method. Best option for short-notice situation like this one imo is always synthetic urine, as long as it’s unsupervised.

  75. Hey, I need some advice and suggestions for how to be sure I can pass a drug test sometime within 2-4 weeks. I am not a regular user, however I have smoked a significant amount of times in the past 3-4 months. About 2 1/2 weeks ago I smoked 2-3 bowls, and just last week I smoked one. I have not smoked since then, and I am exercising a lot. I run track and cross country so I am constantly exercising and sweating etc. I am 5’4″ and weigh 120lbs. I have a good metabolism. I would like to purchase the 10 day detox toxin rid, or buy at home drug tests, but I can’t due to the fact that I do not own my own credit card/pay pal etc.. and do not know anyone who could help me out. Do you have any tips you could give me to help me pass my test?

    • Hey Hannah. As for home drug tests they can also be found in many stores, although often more expensive. I have heard from some though that Dollarstore sells one (for $1) so a few of those could be an option perhaps. Since you weren’t a regular or heavy user, it’s definitely possible that you could get clean naturally in time (imo you probably will, without use of products) although the home drug tests are needed to confirm this. So if I were you I’d keep on with the exercise, drink a lot of liquids as well, and if for any reason you aren’t testing negative close to your real test, consider getting some synthetic urine as a backup plan. Store brands are not always reliable though, and my favorite brands I’m not sure you can find in stores. Best bet from stores might be if you can find Quick Fix urine somewhere. Best of luck!

  76. Hi Sophie,

    I cannot possibly thank you enough for your efforts here!! I have purchased the 10 day Toxinrid package as I am a heavy daily smoker and the potency of the cannabis has been quite high recently. I will be starting on the tablets tomorrow.

    I notice that in the Toxinrid regimen there is included a “day of test” detox fluid, however you recommend purchasing MegaClean or One Shot for the day of bladder clear out. Is it because you feel these 2 products are more effective than the fluid that comes with Toxinrid? Just trying to cover all my bases!

    Thanks again, and apologies for not using my real name, if it makes you more comfortable feel free to email me and I’ll provide that to confidentially

    -Sars

    • Hey Sars, my pleasure and glad it helped you :).

      You don’t say too much about how much time you have until your test but just wanted to mention, that for heavy daily users enough THC will have built up in fat cells and will require time to be released slowly back into the blood to be cleared. Therefore, although Toxin Rid generally speeds the detox time up by a lot, often a month of abstinence or slightly more while also detoxing naturally through exercise, drinking a lot etc is required. That’s why many very heavy users favor synthetic urine unless they have enough time to detox properly.

      Anyway as for your question, yeah I prefer drinking a same day detox drink separately over the one included in Toxin Rid. A good option is to combine one (detox drink) with the toxin rid day of test fluid. If one chooses to do so however, it’s important to mind how much total liquid you’re consuming, so you don’t risk over-diluting your urine, which in turn risks the test being invalid. Personally though I just go with the detox drink on the day-of.

      No problem, I don’t expect people to use their real name and I don’t do so myself either for obvious reasons (risking my career).

  77. Hey Sophie, your website has helped me so much. I was wondering if you could tell me if I would pass a urine test personally. I am 5’4″ and 126 lbs. I quit smoking about 3 weeks ago, but before then I was a heavy smoker (at least 3 times a day every day for the past 5 months). I only started exercising two days ago (mile and a half run and some ab work). I have a test in 3 days. Do you think I will be able to pass a blood test and a urine test? I appreciate your response in advance!

    • sorry I forgot to add that I did the Sure Jell Certo detox to try and speed up the process as well…idk if that makes a difference

      • It can since it does speed up detox somewhat, although it’s mainly used as a same-day strategy to pass through urine dilution.

    • Hey Jordan, glad you found it useful :). That’s pretty heavy use and I don’t think you could pass a urine test naturally by now. Even if you had gone hardcore detox mode from the start, it would be hard for most people to be clean in 3 weeks from that heavy use. Too much will have built up in fat cells over time, needing time to be released and cleared out. But always good to confirm this by getting some affordable home test kits, Amazon sell those on the cheap.

      With such short notice, best option would be a good synthetic urine imo unless supervised. Last-resort would be to try to pass through over-dilution. Certo method or stacking same day detox drinks come to mind. This is never ideal since many tests can detect over-dilution, but it usually beats the alternative of just failing a test.

      A blood test however is likely no problem, you have enough time of abstinence since the detection window is way shorter than for urine tests.

  78. Hello Sophie, PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!

    So I haven’t smoked in years and 2 weeks ago I had a couple hits off a joint with a friend and never got high… A week later I had one hit off a bong and caught a pretty good buzz… I have a second interview tomorrow morning Monday! But they haven’t said anything about a drug test… I’m assuming they might give me one at a later date… I’m 6’1″ 350lbs+ big guy… Should I even be worried about failing I drink a ton of water all the time. What would your advice be? Losing sleep over this. Like I said it’s been years since I smoked. Thank you! Love the site.

    • Hello Joseph.
      Smoking on just 2 occasions with a week inbetween as well as another week+ abstinence, the one-hit being the more recent, I don’t think you have too much to worry about here. My advice would be to get a home test kit or a pack of them as a precaution (Amazon sells very affordable packs amounting to 1$ per test) and confirm that you’re clean. If not you can take it from there, but should that be the case you should be very close to the cut-off and it shouldn’t take much at all to get clean. Most people are clean enough naturally by now from a scenario like the one you described.

  79. Hi Sophie,
    I have a supervised test coming up in 15 days for a job. I regularly smoke 4 bowls of 20% THC 3 times a week. I would like to complete the detox naturally because my doctor has diagnosed me with certain drug allergies (don’t know what I’m specifically allergic to but I’ve had intense reaction from certain medication and even supplements). For the last 3 days I have been spending 1 hour at the gym everyday and drinking almost a gallon of water per day. I’m also a vegetarian and tend to and tend eat healthily (although I’d be open to eating some meat if it would help.) After some research I’ve found that if the sample is too diluted that it can be disqualified. Is this true? and if so is it the same thing as a fail? Is there anything else I can do that would help?
    Thanks,
    -Jack

    • Hi Jacon.
      Not an ideal situation that’s for sure, since 2 weeks sounds a bit on the short side compared to the amount you’ve been smoking. If not supervised synthtic urine would been the way to go imo. But when you can neither detox fast enough nor use urine substitution, that often leaves dilution as the last option as you mention. Dilution is never ideal since most test can detect if your sample is too diluted and it will then be considered invalid (so yeah, it’s true they can disqualify it). It’s not the same as a fail though, since it’s possible to just drink a lot normally to cause over-dilution, while never having used THC. Usually it means you get a re-scheduled test. In some worst cases it could mean you miss the job opportunity as well. And in some cases dilution isn’t detected (especially true with lower-quality strip tests not sent to a lab) and you simply pass the test. All three of these are arguably better than straight up failing due to THC detected. At times though, especially for heavy long time smokers without enough time abcent, even the heaviest of dilutions won’t dilute their urine enough to make them pass a test.

      So dilution likely still remains your best option. Keep in mind though that the more you detox in advance, the less THC there will be that needs diluting and thus a bigger chance for success, so detox helps. A decent alternative can be to get a bunch of home tests and simply experiment with how much liquid it takes to test clean, and stay close to that amount for the real test. This lessens the chance that they detect over-dilution, and should at the same time be enough for no THC to be detected. Experimenting can be done with water, although for the actual test, good detox drinks of that same amount or even the Certo method is generally better than just water.

  80. How’s it going? Thankstill for this helpful post. I do still have a question though. Can tests taken to a lab test for detox? Thanks for any reply.

    • Hey Steve, my pleasure :). Detox per say can’t be tested for no. There are however certain methods/myths that were commonly used by people trying to cheat tests (goldenseal is one example) that they started tested for eventually. Some some specific stuff may be tested for yeah, but these methods aren’t very effective anyway so it’s likely more about finding out if someone’s actively been trying to hide somehting, since many did fall for these detox myths. They can help a little to detox sure, but only as a piece of the bigger puzzle. The other way it can be “tested” for is when it’s not actually detox but rather when one tries to over-dilute their urine. This is often confused with detox though since many products called “detox drinks” do just that. But detox in it’s proper meaning means to expel the Toxins from the body, not just attempting to hide them. Most tests today can detect over-dilution. Other than that no it can’t. Detox is often just the same as doing very healthy stuff and nothing weird or to be detected. Includes exercise and other healthy habits. Good detox products boost your body’s natural detox capabilities/speed.

  81. Ok so I smoked just a pinch of weed last Friday night. So 5 days ago. I used a socket and just put in a pinch and I smoked it with a friend, only once. It was told it wasnt high grade. The last time i smoked before that was a month ago. The point is i have a drug test tomorrow or the next day. I’ve been drinking a lot of water and have been peeing A Lot. Do you think i will pass it. This is my first job and first drug test ever.

    • Hi Amber.
      Unless you were a heavy/daily smoker before this month of abstinence, i’d say you’re looking pretty good here. For very infrequent users (like urself, it would seem) THC will usually be out of the system within a week, and if it was a very small amount, likely within a few days. What you could do is to get yourself a home test kit to confirm you’re clean enough, or a detox drink as a safety measure to help masking whatever little THC might be there. I think you’d pass naturally, but can never know for sure.

  82. So how often is “regular”? Say I smoked twice last week, and once a week or less prior, and have stopped now. How long do you think I need to worry?

    • Once a week (or even twice) isn’t that much imo. Hard to say since it depends on many individual factors as well as the amount you smoked at those occasions, but for most people in your situation I’d say you’re clean naturally within 2 weeks. Always best to confirm using home test kits though.

  83. Hi Sophie,

    I’ve been an on/off regular smoker for years – recently 1-2 fairly strong joints most nights. I’m female, 5’7″, weigh 150lbs, am vegetarian, go to the gym 3-5 times per week, eat healthily and drink a lot of water (2-3 litres a day). I quit 6 days ago and am due to have a drug test (urine) in around 4 weeks and a few days, so looking at just under 6 weeks in total. I have already started detoxing naturally – loads of fruit, veg, wholegrains, herbal teas, water, no alcohol, limited fats etc. I am considering ordering the Toxin Rid 10 day detox but it is so expensive and I will have to have it shipped…do I need it and will it work? I’m going to Korea where I will have to have this test so synthetic is not an option. Help! I’m having such anxiety about this and potentially being sent home on arrival….Thanks so much for your help in advance.

    • Hey Ellie,
      as a daily smoker I’d say it’s very possible you’re not clean in 5-6 weeks from detoxing naturally (usually takes slightly longer than this) even though you do seem to be doing things right. Since this seems like a rather high stakes/important test to pass I’d definitely go with the Toxin Rid. Whether it will work or not? As always you can never know for certain with detox, lots of different factors at play. I’d say that most likely it would though, and either way it’s your best bet imo, so might as well optimize your chances. Best would likely be to go through with the 10-day and keep up hardcore natural detoxing until then, and then have a few home drug tests at hand to cofirm cleanness. In the case you aren’t clean enough you’ll likely be very close at least, and this is where a little dilution shines, such as a detox drink or Certo a bit in advance, and with home testing kits you can know in advance whether this will be necessary or not.

      • Hey Sophie,

        Lets say i smoked the equivalent of about a regular sized joints worth over the past 4 weeks, the last time smoking being on August 8th, and the time before that being 2 weeks ago. How soon do you think i should be clean by? (It’s been months before this 4 week period since I have smoked).

        • I’m assuming you mean this joint worth spread out over 4 weeks, i.e. a really small amount in total rather than a joints worth daily. If that’s the case I’d say you should be clean fairly quickly, maybe 1-2 weeks tops. But take this with a grain of salt, your lifestyle habits, individual body make-up and so on can have a big impact here. Use home testing kits to make sure before taking a real test and you sohuld be alright.

  84. Hey I haven’t smoked for at least 3months before that it was easily 7g a day until 2, days ago and that was about a gram of mid grade Bush I’ve got a drug test coming up in about a week will I be ok? I’m 6’2 and about 70kgs I’ve also got high dose vitamin c to hopefully clear me up a bit, hardly got any body fat either

    • Hey! Late reply I’m afraid but although 3 months is generally enough of abstinence for heavy users to get clean, if I were you I’d use a home testing kit to confirm and then take it from there!

  85. Hi Sophie,

    I may have an important drug test in as little as 1.5-2 weeks. I haven’t smoked in 2 days. I smoke usually 3-4 times a week, usually 3 shotgun hits and sometimes 1 hit directly from the bowl. I’m 5’3″ and a curvy 135 lbs. I rarely exercise and drink an average amount of fluids. What should I do?!

    P.S: thanks for being so helpful!

    • Hey Mari, bit late reply (vacation times) but, perhaps consider synthetic urine, I’d say that sounds like the best way as long as it isn’t supervised.

  86. I have a potential drug test coming up but I don’t know if it’s 10 days from now, less, or more. If I take the 10 day cleanse but my test is more than 10 days away, will I still be clean after the 10 day toxin rid cleanse?

    • Yeah Toxin Rid isn’t time sensitive in that matter, so it can be used any time before your test as long as you don’t smoke again after. Important to keep in mind though that for heavy long time smokers, a lot of THC gets stored up in fat cells and for that time will be needed to get clean. Toxin Rid will make it a lot faster, but there’s no way around that it could take a month or slightly longer still, and maybe 2-3 months without Toxin Rid. So it depends on your situation and time-frame.

  87. Hi Sophie.
    I know I won’t pass my test naturally. Which is better to use – a friends clean urine or synthetic. Thank you1

    • Hi B.
      Imo synthetic is way more convenient, especially SS with the heating powder which can be a lifesaver. A friends clean pee is a little more hassle but also more economical so if on a very tight budget, it’s an ok choice. You’ll want to get some heaters and a thermometer too so you don’t screw up with the temp though!

  88. I am a daily smoker and my biggest concern is a random UA or an accident at my job *I operate machinery* As synthetic is my best option if needed I also wanted to know if I can use my spouses urine *they are a non smoker* instead of synthetic to increase my chances?

    • If you go with a quality urine (SS comes to mind) your spouses urine wouldn’t increase your chances imo. Both could work. But since you’re likely going to be carrying it on you all the time in case of a random test, if you went with your spouse’s pee you’d need a fresh sample daily or it would get old, dark and start growing too much bacteria. So not too convenient perhaps!

  89. Hey Sophie,

    Great site. I’m a moderate/infrequent user (read: I smoke maybe once every 3 months or so). I’m 5’6 135 lbs with a fast metabolism and I practice yoga. If I had an edible approx. 30 days ago (birthday) with a DT coming up in another week, is there any cause for concern? Before then it had been months since I’d smoked, but I’m being overly cautious right now.

    • Hi Kae, thanks :).

      Not really any cause for concern in your case. You’ve likely been clean since a while back already. The only sensible overly cautious thing to do would be to test yourself with a home-test kit. That’s what I would do since I’m always overly cautious, but also because I always have those tests laying around at home already. Still, no need for it except to easy any anxiety you may have about the test, imo.

  90. I’m about starting to apply for jobs soon so I have some time, but I’m going to be buying one of the detox programs, however I am having a hard time figuring out if I should be going for the 10 day extreme exposure, or the 7 day for heavy exposure since it’s a big difference in price. I’m almost exclusively smoking 1 bowl a day, once a week I’ll smoke 2. Do you think i will be good with the 7 day, or should I get the 10 just to be sure?

    • Hi Ron. For a daily smoker, I’d always recommend the 10-day one since daily is pretty heavy. That said, long time heavy users generally need time as well, since THC will often have built up in fat cells. So although Toxin Rid can shorten the detox time considerably, it may still often take a month or slightly longer due to the stored up THC having to be slowly released back into the bloodstream and then expelled. 2-3 months is not uncommon at all for heavy users if there is no effort put into detox. So keep this in mind. Many heavy users facing pre-employment tests without enough time to get clean prefer synthetic urine instead, for good reason.

  91. Hi Sophie, thank you in advance for any advice. I’ve been clean for over a year, smoked 2 high grade bowls a day for four days July 24-27, was clean for a week, then again smoked 2 bowls a day for 5 days, Aug 3-7. Have a pre employment screen Aug 25. Please advise, 5’8, 190 lbs, not a regular exerciser

    • Hey Grace, it’s hard for me to say whether you’d be clean by now or not. But since it’s so little time left, my advise would be test yourself with an at home drug test, and if positive, go with synthetic urine assuming it’s unsupervised as are most pre-employment tests.

  92. Hi.. So back story then question… Last year i quit smoking for 3 months and i was still failing at home kits. Im 5’2 and anout 200 lbs. Well my job calls and said “we realized we never gave you a physical” now im freaking out. Im not even 100% sure it will have a drug test. The paper i have to bring to the doctor has a line that says “does this person appear to be a drug or alcohol user” below that is the word urine where it lusts a few tests. One is for TB and i dont recognize the other words. So my question is, lets assume there is a drug test and i know i wont be clean probably even 3 months from now, if i buy this 10 day detox stuff and maybe even that same day drink will it affect the other stuff im being tested for?

    • Hard to say, would depend on what those other stuff are, but most likely the detox would not affect them since a detox generally makes your body healthier and doesn’t mess with normal values. I’d like to point out though that if it generally takes you 3months+ to get clean (as is the case for many very heavy users) Toxin Rid coupled with detox habits might bring this time down to 1-1,5 months in my experience, but won’t have you clean in ten days. This is because THC will have built up in your fat cells and will need time to be released and expelled no matter how you try to detox. Other non-fat-soluble drugs would be out in no time though, but that’s of little relevance here..

  93. Hello.
    I have a drug teat coming up in about a week…maybe two weeks tops. I stopped smoking for about three weeks and still get positive results with a home test kit. I use the first check brand from walmart. I’ve heard about taking flush free niacin to help pass and drinking cranberry juice. What are your thoughts?

    • Hi Ehardt. Yeah if you were a heavy smoker, it’s not uncommon to test positive for 2-3 months unless you put effort into proper detox. Cranberry juice and niacin are just small parts of the puzzle imo, and relying on them solely would be ill-advised. Best option generally when you’re testing positive on the home-kit and time is limited, is synthetic urine.

  94. Hi, I have a DT coming up in 3 to 4 weeks. I was a daily smoker for years before I took a trip to se Asia a month ago, and did not smoke any at all. I just drank water and sweat a lot going hiking for the month. When I returned to the USA, I smoked once a week for the past three weeks. I have not smoked any in a few days, and will not be smoking any longer. I am 5’6″, 140 lbs, and exercise daily. I stay hydrated and active. My diet is fairly healthy. I do drink some coffee and alcohol. Will I be able to pass my test without any detox drugs in 3 to 4 weeks?

    • Hi Jay, I’d say the 3 weeks are not the main problem here, as they are only 3 instances and they would clear out naturally in time. But the heavy smoking prior to that Asia trip could be problematic. It’s not uncommon at all that daily smokers test positive 2-3 months after quitting unless they put effort into proper detox. So in your case, I’d still suggest full on detox, with both natural methods and products, to be on the safe side. If unsupervised, synthetic urine is viable too. Make use of home test kits to know whether you’re good or not. Although it’s possible you’re actually naturally clean in time, it’s far from guaranteed so if the test is important, that’s my advice!

  95. Hey Sophie what would be your best advice on a test within 24 hours but it’s not a supervised ..any info would be appreciated..thanks

  96. Hi Sophie. My son has to take a drug test. He last smoked on 7/18. He was a social smoker, probably 5x a week, but not heavy, and could skip weeks in between when he was working. He’s about 5’8, 156 pounds, and ever since he stopped, he’s been working out daily, sitting in saunas. He first took a home test about 2 weeks ago and the line was so faint, we bought the 10-day toxin rid. He took it for 3 days but then the drug test got moved up. He took another home test and there was a faint line but the next day it sort of disappeared, then after lots of water, it came back, so he went in for the test. It came back negative diluted so he has to take it in 2 days. He restarted the toxin rid pills after 3 days but will only be able to take it for 2 days, then the detox liquid, then detox fiber. Should he finish the toxin rid liquid/fiber the day before the test, then take mega clean or something like that (the smoke shop said they don’t have mega clean but they sell something similar) on the test day which is the next day? Thank you.

    • Hey Mary, couldn’t reply to this on such short notice I’m afraid! But either way you seem to be doing it correctly. If there are only a couple of days left (not enough to finish Toxin Rid) I often take double doses the very last days, although on separate times of the day. Not as effective as giving it the time you’re supposed to, but still better than regular dose and leaving the rest. Keep in mind that on many home tests, even the faintest line means negative, so read the instructions carefully to not get worried without good reason. And I hope it went well for him!

  97. What a cool informative page.
    Well done!
    I’m in Thailand and the herb here is mostly compresso ditch weed.
    Long gone are the days of the Thai sticks.
    That said, compared to gear back home or in Europe this stuff pales.
    My question is, for clean out time could we say since the herb is weaker will the cannabinoids will be substantially less?

    • Thanks Henry! Yeah for sure, since it depends on how much THC you get into the system in the first place, a weaker herb will have less THC so as long as this isn’t compensated for by smoking more instead, it should make the cleanout shorter
