Depending on your reason for detoxing, certain cleansing programs and detox approaches might be best to help you meet your deadline. For those of you with an unexpected drug test looming over your head, a 24 hour detox drink might be your only option. The best detox drinks that keep THC from screwing up your test results flush toxins from your system in about two hours. These detox drinks are not intended for those looking to be permanently cleansed of toxins, however.
Rather, these drinks cleanse the system just long enough to meet your deadline. Most detox drinks will leave you clean between four to eight hours. This should be a long enough window to get to a testing facility and pee in a cup. Be sure to follow all the instructions carefully to ensure a passing result. Because THC gets trapped in your storage fat cells, detection times will vary. But no matter how long weed stays in your system , you should ideally be looking to permanently cleanse your body of toxins. The best way to ensure your body goes through a detox process is using a detox kit, which are often 10 day programs.
The best THC detox kits will provide you with herbal supplements to assist your body’s natural detoxification systems, along with at-home testing kits to gauge your toxicity level. Make sure to pay attention to suggested detox guides and tips, and maintain the best practices of a natural detox below. If you have longer than a month and want to allow your body to naturally detox THC from your system, then there are a few best practices to follow. Of course, the unfortunate first step is to stop consuming weed. Drinking tons of liquids is crucial during a detox process. Make sure you are getting at least 96 to 130oz of water daily. It’s also good to mix in warm tea, lemon water, and cranberry juice into your hydration routine, as they should all help in the natural detox process. Another way to support your detox organs is by sweating. Since your skin is your largest detoxifying organ, getting your sweat on is a great way to release toxins. Daily cardiovascular exercise is a great way to engage your sweat glands and burn fat. Spending time in the sauna will also help your body detox. Other ways to help the natural detox process include: Eating lean meats, cutting back (or cutting out) salts and sugars, and getting plenty of sleep. While you are going through a natural cleanse, it can be helpful to use an at-home test kit to gauge your toxicity levels along the way. Once you decide to detox from weed, there are factors to consider when deciding which detox method is best for you. If you are needing to pass a test, we highly recommend using a detox kit or detox shot to ensure you are really clean before you have to pee in a cup. Your personal cleansing deadline will then dictate if you have the time to do a longer detox or if you need to pick a 24-hour cleanser. If you are looking to detox for a tolerance break or for general health reasons then you have the luxury of time. We still recommend utilizing a detox kit to assist your natural detoxification process. Herbal supplements found in detox kits can be powerful tools to flush those toxins out. We get a lot of questions about how to detox the system from THC. Vinegar, specifically apple cider vinegar (ACV), has been a remedy for many things since ancient times. ACV does have cleansing properties, but drinking this acidic tonic won’t actually cleanse your system of THC metabolites. The truth behind the vinegar detox myth is that ACV does alter pH levels in your urine. This can increase the speed at which your body eliminates toxins. However, the increase in toxin elimination is not enough to match the rate at which THC metabolites are released into the body from your storage fat cells, especially for those with high BMI or high-toxin exposure.
Unfortunately, extreme amounts of ACV like those recommended online for a vinegar THC detox may just end up giving you diarrhea. Cranberry can assist your body’s natural detoxification systems. It’s antioxidant properties are what make it helpful during a detox. Perhaps these beneficial facts about cranberry are the reason for the common — but false — myth that cranberry juice can clean your system of THC. Cranberries can act as a diuretic, which means you will urinate more frequently and thus expel waste from your body. However, chugging an exorbitant amount of cranberry juice before your drug test will just make you have to pee, which will have trace amounts of THC in it. This will lead to either a failed test or inconclusive result. Because cranberry juice doesn’t draw toxins out of fat cells, nor does it actively do anything to expel toxins from your body faster. So, ultimately, cranberry juice will not help get rid of THC.
The theory behind the niacin detox is that niacin can help increase the rate your body breaks down fat, which is where THC metabolites are stored. But believers don’t take all factors into consideration. One factor to consider with a niacin flush is that everyone has different levels of toxicity, as well as varied BMI’s. Unfortunately, the successful niacin stories are told by primarily thin people with high metabolisms, and very little exposure to toxins. More commonly you will read about this method failing for those with regular or high body weight, as well as medium to extreme exposure to toxins.
