Why Companies Require Drug Testing
Employers aren’t just looking at your resume these days. They also test for drugs. Reason? Well, they know that using illegal drugs at the workplace can cause:
- Reduced employee morale
- Lower company profits
- Decreased productivity
- Damage to the company reputation
So, as you can see, companies are pretty serious about drug testing and will do their due diligence to screen all candidates.
Types of Drug Tests to Expect
Various weed testing procedures exist, including:
- Urine test – the most common drug testing method
- Hair test – It’s a new method for testing drugs, but it’s gaining popularity
- Saliva test – It’s common in pre-employment screening, post-accident testing, and periodic or random testing.
- Blood test – It’s less common and mainly government agencies and large organizations may administer it.
Thus, it’s important to know the testing method that’ll be used so you can prepare effectively.
10 Easy Things to Do to Pass a Drug Test Fast
That said, here are the approaches you can use to pass the upcoming drug test:
1. Drink Water (or Other Diuretic Fluids) Hours to the Test
Dr. Sherry Rogers was right when he said the solution to pollution is dilution. Simply put, drinking water dilutes the urine sample, diminishing the visible drug levels. Thus, consuming diuretic fluids a couple of hours before the test is likely to result in a less concentrated sample, leading to a less sensitive test result. But, here’s a word of caution: don’t add water to your urine sample as most drug testing labs have a way of telling if the sample is over-diluted.
Your best bet is to drink water in the hours before the test and not lots of water just an hour to the test. If you do the latter, you’re likely to pass out plenty of water in urine. In other words, the urine will have the same color as the water, and this might make the sample be flagged as one that has been interfered with.
2. Natural Cleanse
Typically, it takes most people 30 to 60 days to complete a natural cleanse.This method involves a change in lifestyle and diet to help the body get rid of THC stored in the system. While everyone detoxifies at their own pace, it takes a few weeks for the process to complete. It may take heavy weed users at least 90 days to pass a drug test after their last use. Natural cleansing requires time. So, if you don’t have the luxury of time, you can opt for other quick methods, including . . .
3. Detox Kits
A high-quality detox kit clears any trace of THC from the urine sample, making you pass the dreaded drug test. Generally, most detox kits take 5 to 10 days to flush THC and other drugs from your system. How do these kits work? They are simply herbal supplements that help your body to detoxify drugs naturally.
But there’s a catch.
For detox kits to work, you must cease the consumption of a drug while undergoing detoxification. Once you complete the detox kit and pass the drug test, you’ll be free of THC for good. But that only applies until you take another puff.
4. Use a Mouthwash (for a Saliva Test)
The saliva test is becoming more popular because it’s easy to administer than the urine test, cost-effective, and the assays are harder to tamper with. It may be used to test for various substances, including cannabis (THC), alcohol, opioids, methamphetamine, amphetamines, and more.
To beat a saliva test, we recommend that you use a mouthwash designed to remove drug toxins. Most of the mouthwashes work within minutes. That said, just jump to the bathroom before the drug test. On top of that, brush the teeth well, but don’t do it like crazy before a test, as you might bleed and toxins may get into the saliva.
5. Avoid Exercising The Day Before A Test
Here’s something we can both agree on: Exercising is one of the most effective ways to eliminate toxins from the body. But here’s the problem: Exercising a day before your drug test can be counterproductive.
How? Scientific research published on ABC Science shows that working out too soon before a test can trigger a positive drug test result even if you haven’t smoked weed recently.
Here’s the reason: during exercise, the body uses energy from stored fat (and fat can store THC for more than 28 days). This releases more THC back to the person’s bloodstream. No, we don’t mean you should stop working out. Instead, don’t go hard at the gym just a day or two before the test.
6. Check the Amount and Frequency of Your Weed Consumption
When smoking pot, it’s critical to consider how frequently and how much you consume. A heavy user is more likely to fail the test than an individual who takes a puff once a month, for example. To increase the odds of beating the drug test, consider going two to four weeks without weed.
And there’s something else. When deciding on the marijuana amount to smoke or ingest, take into account the fat levels in your body. The reason is THC often remains in body fat and can stick there for a long time.
7. Go Green
This doesn’t mean you consume more weed (sorry, stoners).Instead, weeks before your test, get into the habit of consuming more green veggies, such as kale, broccoli.
Green vegetables are a powerful source of vitamins and will naturally help to remove THC from your system. Can’t stand the thought of eating vegetables? Drink green juice instead. As a side note, you’ll save money juicing your own veggies than purchasing costly detox drinks.
8. Synthetic or Powdered Urine Kits
Using powdered and synthetic pee is the ideal way to beat an employment drug test. And here’s why: Most employers won’t bother observing you when proving the urine sample.
But synthetic kits are not advisable for court-ordered testing. And the reason is simple: courts often require a supervised drug test. In other words, an observer will be required when providing the sample, making it difficult to add synthetic urine to the sample cup. Just to be sure, we recommend that you ask around to know how your potential employer conducts the urine test.
Whether you’re a habitual or a one-off weed user, it’s very easy to fail the drug test. According to data from Mayo Medical Laboratories, how long marijuana stays in urine depends on the frequency of use. A first-time weed user may test positive up to the third day after last use. A moderate user may taste positive up to 5 days after the last use. A heavy and chronic user is likely to test positive up to 10 days and 30 days respectively after last using the drug. Now, you’re thinking, what does this have to do with abstinence?
Well, this simply tells us that whether you’re a one-off user or a chronic one, weed remains in your body. As a result, you can easily fail the drug test. So, the most reliable way to pass a drug test is abstinence. But, hey smoking marijuana is legal in most states.
10. Plan Well before Getting High
Here are some crucial facts from Medical News Today: First-time marijuana users have approximately three days detection window. Those who smoke three to four times a week have a detection window of five to seven days.
Super potheads who can’t go a day without smoking marijuana have a detection window of more than 30 days. Remember, urine tests can show the presence of THC three to 30 days from the last use. The lesson from these facts is simple: the more you get high, the higher the chances of failing your drug test. So, know the type of marijuana consumer you are (first, moderate, or chronic) and plan accordingly (slow down or stop altogether) when you know there’s a test underway.
These are some of the tested ways to help you pass a drug test. There are other methods we deliberately omitted from this list. They include adding a substance to contaminate the urine before a test or using the urine of another person
Testers have advanced mechanisms to test the temperature of a fresh urine sample. So if you buy a sample, they’ll tell. The same applies to adulterating the sample. Most adulterants like vinegar, lemon, salt, etc, will change the color and smell of urine, making it suspicious.
