There are different ways through which we can support the liver to do its thing. However, the following three protocols are a MUST for successful detoxing. The very first action towards successful THC detoxification is abstinence, or put in simpler terms, refusing to add more THC metabolites into the system.
You cannot try to get rid of THC metabolites from your system while still hitting the joint. If you are a regular smoker of cannabis and toking has been baked into your everyday routine, we won’t lie to you that abstinence will be a walk in the park. It’s a battle that you need to get prepared for not only regarding resisting the urge to light a stick. It also involves getting ready to deal with the withdrawal symptoms that follow including insomnia/bad dreams, decreased appetite, anger/irritability, nervousness, and stomach pains. But it’s possible to abstain if you are armed with pure willpower. The secret to quitting smoking weed is not smoking today. So, get rid of it in whichever way possible right away. The struggle to saying no to smoking will be much stronger if you’ll be spending most of your time in the same locations that you used to smoke.
You could take a walk to the library and keep yourself involved in reading. Unless you are taking a tolerance break and are intending to get back to smoking weed after the detox phase, it’s also important to throw out all your smoking paraphernalia. Having the pipe, grinder, and lighter or anything else that comes into play to give you a high will make it near impossible to resist the urge to light up when the craving comes crashing on you. Lose Contact With Your Dealer And Smoking Buddies (If Need Be) This is the time to delete your dealers’ contacts from your phone or torch your medical card. Go ahead and explain to your buddies why you won’t be toking any longer. If your buddies are loyal, the chances are that they will support you in your course. If they aren’t, it might be time to maintain some distance from them, especially where they smoke. Also, if you frequent weed forums, you’ll need to restrict your access to them for the next couple of weeks or months. What you want is to eliminate everything that might influence you to smoke again. Once you’ve successfully stopped adding more THC and its metabolites into your system, you now need to make it possible for your body to release the stored THC. One way of doing this is by not adding more layers of fats over those that are holding the THC molecules. And this is where the need for a change in your diet comes in. Generally, the fatter you are, the longer it will be for you to detox. But this might also be affected by other factors such as how long you’ve been smoking, how regularly, and the amount. If you are a heavy smoker and have toked for several years now, the chances are that you have layers upon layers of THC- trapped between the fat. Dieting to detox THC is more or less a weight loss program since it involves burning layers of fat. The following weight loss tips might, therefore, come in handy. M arijuana can be good for a lot of things, but helping you pass a drug test isn’t one of them. Many people ask us how to flush marijuana out of your system. Well, it starts with a bit of knowledge and a marijuana detox. There are many reasons why people want to ‘flush’ their system of marijuana. The most common situation is a drug test for employment purposes. Workplace drug tests typically involve urinalysis (testing your pee) for metabolites. Metabolites are a byproduct of a substance after it has been processed by your body. When you consume marijuana, the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) levels in your blood stream will immediately increase. As your body cleanses the THC out of your blood stream, metabolites are left behind.
Note that THC, the cannabinoid known for its psychoactive effects, is responsible for getting you “high.” Having said this, both THC and the non-psychoactive metabolite, THC-COOH, will remain in your body’s fat tissue for varying lengths of time depending on a variety of factors. To figure out if you are ‘clean’ for a drug test and how to get weed out of your system, you need to be able to determine the following: The amount of THC and its metabolites in your system The type of test you’ll be required to take The testing levels for your drug screen. There are a handful of factors that will help you determine how much THC and THC-COOH are in your body after any length of time, post-consumption. How often you consume: When determining how much THC is in your system, you must take the frequency of consumption into consideration, first and foremost. When you do smoke, are you only taking one hit or enjoying an entire joint (or two)? Obviously, the more frequently you use (and the actual amount you consume), the more THC and THC-COOH will accrue in the fatty tissue throughout your body. Total body fat: As we just mentioned, THC and THC-COOH store itself in fat cells, no matter how often or little you use.
As a result, the more body fat you have, the more THC and its metabolites will be inevitably stored. Metabolism & overall health: It makes sense that the healthier you are, the better off you’ll be (in all aspects in life). When it comes to THC and its metabolites, they have less of a chance of storing themselves in your body fat, if there isn’t a lot of body fat in the first place! Having said this, everyone has varying metabolisms that break down THC at different rates.
