Shoulds and Should Nots of Passing a Drug Test

Passing a drug test can be a serious problem for both constant and occasional marijuana users. Especially if they are getting hired for a new job, and the last step to get the approval is to show the results of a urine drug test to a company manager. THC half life can range from 1 day to 6 weeks, and it does not matter how much you were impaired with pot—the test simply detects the fact of smoking. It is unfair, sure. It is like getting caught for drinking alcohol a week ago. What makes it even more unpleasant is that the employer will probably not give you much time to pass a drug test because they want to catch you red-handed. That is why we decided to give you some tips on how to pass a drug test and stop worrying about the half life of THC that could be found in your urine.

Commercial Urine Cleansers Do Not Work

While commercial urine cleansers are highly advertised and seem to be a good decision for pot smokers, do not fall for it. The fact is that there is no scientific proof that they are effective. Moreover, you can inquire about the prices of these urine cleansers. We bet you would be surprised to see that they cost $20-$50. Actually, they are made specifically for those who are too frightened to hesitate and even read their ingredients. The truth is, such urine cleansers contain various herbal diuretics that can be easily bought at any drugstore for half the price and are supposed to be taken an hour before the urine drug test. But what if you need more time?

Water Helps

Drink a lot of water from the very moment you found out about your drug test. Water can help you get marijuana out of your body. Water is the key to passing your drug test successfully. And when we say a lot of water, we do not mean a few glasses of it, we mean gallons. Keep it in mind.

Forget About Diet Pills

What you need is to increase the pee flow, that is why you should use diuretics. Coffee and cranberry juice work great, but they are too weak for passing a drug test. The perfect solution here would be Lasix and Midol. But do not take any diet pills. While they are great for drug clearance, they can make you test positive for amphetamine. Midol and Lasix have no such side effects and are safe to use.

B-complex Multivitamin

If you follow the rules mentioned above, by the time of the drug testing, your urine will be watered down and clear. That can evoke suspicions in lab technicians. So, if you want to avoid a reanalysis, B2 and B12 multivitamins will help you come out clean. (A reanalysis, however, can become a nice option to bide time.) Just take 100 milligrams of a B-complex multivitamin two hours before the drug test, and you will be good to go.


According to various studies, aspirin masks certain parts of the spectrum that is checked by the urine drug testing. So, you can take 4 aspirin tablets 4-6 hours before taking the test.

Choose the Right Time

Since you are probably free to pass your drug test any time of a certain day, it can work in your favor. Usually, when the patients have to give their urine for analysis, they are asked to provide the first morning urine portion, because this way, the test is the most objective in detecting their illnesses. But you, on the contrary, do not need your urine to be objectively assessed. That is why you should pee at least twice before giving your urine for analysis.
