If you’re planning to pass a drug test or simply want to get your body and mind back to their peak condition, you’re going to want to thoroughly detox yourself.
Detoxing from weed has some great benefits and should be done from time to time, but it’s not that simple. Often, weed can be detected in drug tests for days or even weeks – so choosing the right stuff to speed this process up is critical.
This guide will examine the best ways to detox yourself from weed.
What Does Detox Mean?
Detox or detoxification refers to ridding your body of toxins or other substances and “cleaning up”. During this process, your body and mind might feel strange, and you may even feel a little sick.
Detoxing from alcohol or hard drugs is very difficult and sometimes requires intervention – but weed can be detoxed simply and safely from the comfort of your own home.
The Best Detox Methods
To speed up the process of detox, you’ll want to ensure you’re selecting the right products, foods, drinks and other methods. Here are the best ways you can detox from weed:
Get To The Gym
Exercise is a fantastic method to speed up the detox process. Cardio exercises and weight lifting can get the heart pumping more blood around the body, allowing for the development of red blood cells – which speeds up the detox process.
Additionally, sweating and breathing out carbon dioxide to a higher level can not only benefit the metabolic rate of weed but has its own benefits of alertness and general fitness.
Not only this, you’re likely to drink more water when exercising, quickening the flushing out process and burning off those pesky calories from that pizza you ate last night!
Basically, it’s a win-win situation if you choose to exercise for detoxing. So, get to the gym!
Pure orange juice has always been a go-to method for detoxes. Its high level of vitamin C promotes a healthier body and speeds up the process, and promotes the development of your red blood cells – this is why orange juice is great for when you have a common cold or the flu.
Orange juice not only tastes great, but it’s good for you and can flush out pesky toxins and support a healthy lifestyle.
Cranberry juice has always been known as a fantastic antioxidant drink and can force a detox timeline because it works quickly through your body.
What it does over many other drinks is make you go to the bathroom more – and that’s the idea here. The more you’re flushing out, the better!
This also applies to the next drink:
Coffee not only tastes incredible, but it’s a natural diuretic – meaning it makes you pee more! This is a tried and tested method for detoxing yourself from toxins, but also the caffeine levels will help you move around more, moving the blood around and regenerating your body’s chemistry.
Sports drinks rebuild your body’s electrolytes and speed up your natural processes internally – which for detoxing is highly beneficial.
Not only this, they’re based on water – and water is great for flushing out the kidneys and liver, but can also build alertness, make you pee more and make you feel generally better. Not to mention you’d be hydrated too!
Detox drinks are created specifically for getting weed and other substances out of your system as quickly as possible. They are normally full of vitamins, minerals, water and sometimes caffeine.
They are flavored for the consumer’s benefit, but their drawback is in their price – they’re not the cheapest products to buy. However, you get what you pay for!
Believe it or not, there are now pills to help you detox which comes in the form of a kit. They work by giving you a five-day program in which you must follow instructions. You will:
- Take the pills
- Increase your water intake
- Reduce your food intake
- Add dietary fiber
What To Remember With These Remedies
These remedies, although they work to some extent, do not instantly flush your body with weed. You have to continue with the process over a number of days – so if you have a drug test coming up in the next couple of days, it’s recommended that you leave at least a week to ten days to get flushed.
Some of these methods will not work or be right for some people either. So, with that in mind – it’s a good idea to do the following:
Buy A Home Drug Testing Kit
Home drug testing kits will only be seen by you and you alone (unless you show someone of course!). This means that you can test out these methods above and see how long each one of them takes to flush your body from the time you last smoked weed.
It’s a good idea to keep a diary and note down how long each product has taken and how each one worked for you. Once you’ve got your tried and tested method – you know which one you’ll be sticking with.
Drug tests may request a sample of saliva or a urine sample – sometimes they’ll ask for a few drops of blood from your thumb or even a hair sample in some rare tests. They normally are quick and indicate a drug is present with a color in their solution.
Ensure that you do these tests in controlled environments (clean surfaces and no contaminants for a false test).
The Bottom Line
Detoxing is not an instant process and weed is one of the substances that takes the longest time to leave your system for good. Therefore, ensure you’re planning a detox for around a week to ten days to be completely clean.
We hope this guide has been useful for you. Good luck and happy detoxing!
