If you’ve ever had to do a drug test, you know how overwhelming, scary, and downright intimidating they can be. Will you pass? What will happen if that joint you smoked last night shows up on the test results?
Drug tests are a pain in the ass, and there’s no way getting around that fact. Moreover, they are normally conducted in a diverse setting for a wide range of requirements, so the main question is:
How do you pass marijuana urine and blood tests?
If you’ve done some research, you’ve probably found hundreds of marijuana related articles online that talk about this topic. We’re here to show you what’s true, what’s fake, and what REALLY works!
[Did you know that in most cases, the process of removing marijuana from your body can take about 30 days depending on your metabolism, toxin levels, and general health?]

Ok, so here they are – the 5 Best Ways to Get Rid of Marijuana and Pass Urine & Blood Tests!
1) Drink A LOT of water
Taking in water hydrates your body, and is one of the best ways to detoxify cannabis from your system. However, it cannot be rated as a magic solution, and most drug tests will be voided (meaning you’ll have to retake it) if it’s registered that your urine is too dilute to obtain an accurate reading.
That being said, taking in a lot of water keeps your body healthy and well-hydrated, which is one of the most useful things to do while trying to detox your body from THC and its metabolites.
How much is “a lot” of water, you might be wondering? Generally speaking, you’ll want to drink upwards of three gallons a day for the entire time leading up to your test. Basically, drink as much water as you naturally can without forcing it on yourself.
Cannabis is fat soluble – therefore, it is stored long-term in your body fat cells. With this in mind, doing exercises that help you burn fat, also help you to get rid of marijuana as well.
It’s best to combine both cardio training and weight lifting activities. For example, do some running or swimming in order to burn the fat and enhance metabolism in your body. Even some ab crunches or pushups in the days leading up to your test couldn’t hurt.
“THC metabolites are stored in the body’s fat cells – the more you exercise and the more fat your burn, the quicker you’ll burn of detectable traces of marijuana…”
3) Change to a “Green” Diet
We’re not talking about eating marijuana edibles here; green vegetables such as broccoli, kale, chard, and spinach are great sources of vitamins and minerals like iron. These vegetables are good for helping you to remove marijuana from your body, as they contain important nutrients that are needed to hasten metabolism.

4) Drink Lots of Tea (or Coffee)
In addition to loading up on the water intake, treat yourself to some citrusy cups of tea as well; most fruits contain Vitamin C, but lemons have high acid contents that can actually act as useful electrolytes to rid your body’s cells of THC in a natural way.
If you can get your own fresh lemons, that’s the best. Don’t use lemon juice bought from the grocery store, because it may not have the same effectiveness as freshly squeezed lemons. Also, there are different varieties of tea that can help your body during the natural detoxification of marijuana; the helpful ones such as Green tea and Dandelion tea aid your liver to get rid of toxins, while any tea with low caffeine content boosts metabolism and burns extra fat.
5) Keep Off the Weed (Duh)
One of the most obvious ways to pass marijuana urine and blood test is simply by abstaining. In other words, don’t use marijuana while in the process of cleansing yourself !
Otherwise, weed will re-deposit THC back into your system, making you more susceptible to the tests than you were before. The natural processes of cleansing will start all over again if you re-introduce marijuana into your body, so do your best to give it up cold turkey in the days or weeks leading up to the screening. We know it’s not easy, but it will surely be worth it in the long run.
Can You Combine?
We are definitely not saying that you should do any of this, but Chris Branicle, the self-proclaimed “world’s fastest stoner” (and known distance runner) has passed a few drug tests during his running career. On one occasion, he was reportedly said to have made all marijuana traces disappear from his system barely 36 hours after smoking.
How did he do it? In his response, he said that he simply ran 24 miles, drank a lot of water, and downed lots of orange juice (which contains loads of citric acid). He also started taking coffee with 3 espresso shots, which work much in the same way as tea when it comes to helping your body detox of THC metabolites.
It’s not easy and it certainly involves a lot of hard work and dedication, but if you’re serious about passing your upcoming marijuana drug test, employing any one of these techniques will no doubt improve your chances.
