How to Pass A Drug Test For Marijuana- Stoner’s Guide

how to pass a drug test for marijuana

I know typically here at Your Average Stoner we like to talk a lot about using marijuana, but today were going to jump over to other side and talk about what to do when you have to stop using marijuana. 

If you managed to stumble along on to this page, you're most likely an unlucky SOB that has a drug test coming up. Drug tests can come about for a plethora of reasons,your place of employment is probably the most common source of drug testing, then getting in trouble with the law, parents, etc. The point is, you've got a drug test and you need to pass it. Unfortunately, not all drug tests are made equally either, and there isn't going to be one foolproof method to pass all drug tests, so you kind of have to know what you're going to be getting yourself into. Besides variabilty in the testing, there are also going to be other variables , such as how often you smoke and your body fat percentage and metabolism. 

While the most common test (and the test people worry about the most) is a urine test, there are also other tests you could be subjected to, so if it is possible for you to figure out what kind of test you're going to be subjected to that will make things a whole lot easier!

Here's a quick rundown of the types of tests you could face and some important info you should know about each. 

*All of the tables show how long THC can be detectable based on different frequencies of using marijuana.

Single (First Time) Use

Regular Use (2-3 times per week)

Daily Use

5-8 days

33-50 days

up to 90 days

Urine tests are the most common test given and they happen to be one of the hardest to beat, so today we're going to be spending most of our time on that. First things first, as you can see from the table, using marijuana once isn't going to get you into too much trouble, but if you are a more frequent smoker you can see how that can start to stack up and make passing a drug test really, really hard. 90 days is a long time, and while that number is worse case scenario (usually around 60 days) it's still a very long time. 

If you're looking to land that new job, or maybe you got in trouble with the law, you're more than likely not going to have 60-90 days to cleanse yourself of THC, so what do you do?

Unfortunately, there is no guaranteed, straightforward answer I can give you to help you pass your test, but I will give you tips and the absolute best strategies you need to have the best chance at success! First, let's take a look at common methods people use to cleanse themselves.

"Sweating" it out method: Anybody who's tried to pass a drug test has certainly heard of this method, it seems to be as old as time. The aim with this method is to workout a lot, get a real good sweat going and actually sweat out all of the THC. This sounds great in theory, however our good friend science has a bone to pick with this theory. THC and it's metabolites are stored in our fat cells, so when we workout, we're not directly sweating out all of the THC, science actually says that all we're doing is pushing the THC into our bloodstream, not actually out of the body. So yeah, this might not be the best method despite what some will say!

Drink an Ungodly amount of water (or pectin or cranberry juice) method: This is also a really popular strategy to flush THC out of your system, however this method doesn't work as well as people say it does either. What this will do, is make your urine completely diluted and basically water. This isn't necessarily the worst thing in the world however, and it's what people aim for a lot of time, but what this method is really good for is diluting your urine. You won't pop for THC this way, but it also makes the urine basically untestable. So you're either going to called back in for another test (which buys you time), or if you're lucky, they'll say your free to go and all set! In some rare cases, if the drug testing is really serious, they may not be happy with a diluted sample as it usually means the person is trying to hide something, so know what kind of test you're going into. 

Using someone else's urine: When pulled off successfully, this is the the best way to guarantee you pass your drug test, but it's also the worst method to get caught doing. Now the first thing some of you may be asking is "Where do I get the clean urine?" This is a great question, obviously if you're comfortable asking your family and friends that's a great place to start, just take sure they won't pop for THC either! If you're not comfortable asking your friends or family, you can actually purchase urine online. You can buy powdered urine online that you prepare before your test right at home. Check out Amazon and TestClear for their options in powdered urine. Now once you have the urine, here are some additional tips to help you succeed. 

  • Make sure if your a male, you get male urine and for females, female urine. I heard a story once about a dude who used fake urine and when they tested it they figured out the man was pregnant! NOT, the poor bastard just used female urine!
  • On the day of your test, don't let the fake urine get too hot or too cold. The urine needs to be the temperature of your body, because thats where it's coming from. The best way is to keep the fake urine strapped to your inner thigh to keep it body temperature.
  • If you're taking a proctored drug test (someone watching you) don't try to fool them with the fake urine, it'll just get you into more trouble than if you failed the drug test itself. 

Go on a cleanse: While the success rate still isn't 100%, going on a cleanse is probably the best way to pass a drug test. There are actually companies who's sole purpose is to make products to help people pass drug tests.And they have everything you could possibly need, no matter what type of test!  These products include shampoos for passing hair tests, drinks/tablets that are completely natural that will help flush THC out and come with instructions on how to use. You can even find powdered urine on TestClear as well! Or if you'd prefer, Amazon has powdered urine as well! And to know if your products are working correctly, both PassYourTest and TestClear offer drug testing kits as well!

Blood

Single (First Time) Use

Regular Use (2-3 times per week)

Daily Use

6-24 Hours

7 days

7 days

Blood drug tests are not the most common, they are expensive to conduct and they are undoubtedly the most invasive. They also happen to be the most accurate, and can test the presence of actual parent drugs, not just the itty bitty metabolites. However, as you can see by the table above, even as a daily user, THC would only be detectable in your blood for a maximum of a week. So for all the hassle and money, you'll only be able to see the drugs a person has done in the last week. Blood tests are usually only done when the law is heavily involved, like right after an accident, crime, etc. 

Keep in mind also that all of the numbers in this table are worse case scenario, ideally and on average, THC is out of the bloodstream within a few hours.

Hair Follicle

Single (First Time) Use

Regular Use (2-3 times per week)

Daily Use

Highly unlikely to test positive 

7-90 days

7-90 days

Hair Follicle tests aren't as common as urine tests, but they are still fairly common in the workplace and they can detect drug use up to 90 days before the test. That obviously can pose some problems, 90 days is a long time, and removing THC from your hair is a bit trickier. 

And while shaving your head might seem like a good idea, it really isn't in most cases. Samples of hair can be taken from anywhere on your body, meaning your head, facial hair, armpit hair, and yes, even pubic hair. So if you show up to get your hair follicle test completely bald and hairless, that might raise some serious concern and if it's a job you're after, I'll save you the time and let you know you didn't get the job!

Unfortunately, there are no true guarantees to beat a hair test. Both PassYourTest and TestClear offer shampoos designed to get THC and all it's metabolites out of your hair, they're a bit pricey, but they have great reviews and a lot of people say they've worked! 

Saliva

Single (First Time) Use

Regular Use (2-3 times per week)

Daily Use

24 hours

24 hours

24 hours

Saliva tests are becoming increasingly popular in today's society, employers like using them because they're quick, cheap and not really invasive at all. Saliva tests are different than other tests in that they don't test for THC metabolites, they test for THC itself. For this reason, a lot of people think saliva tests are the most accurate, and while I'm no scientist, I do know that saliva tests are easy to beat!

As you can see from the table above, even in the heaviest of smokers, THC is only going to be detectable in your saliva for up to 24 hours. So if you know you have a drug test coming up, or a situation where an on-sight drug test could occur (ex. job interview) then don't smoke for at least 24 hours (I'd try 1-3 days to be absolutely sure) before your test.
