If you need to take a drug test in a week, you're probably wondering if you can detox yourself from weed in time. We'll focus on urine drug tests here, because these are typically the hardest tests for weed users to pass (other than hair drug tests, which need a detox shampoo).
This article will cover how to detox your body from weed in a week, or at least try to, but it will also cover what to do if you aren't completely detoxed after a week.
Is it possible to detox from weed in a week?
It's very possible, but it's not guaranteed. Much will depend on your weed usage pattern, but each individual's body also plays a role in determining how long it will take.
If you've been a very occasional weed user, say once a month or so, your chances are extremely good. If you've been using weed on a weekly basis, your chances start to decline, but there's still good reason to expect success if you work at it. Daily weed users are much less likely to detox in a week, but it's still worth trying. You can always combine it with one of the same-day detox solutions we'll cover later.
How to detox your body from weed in a week
Firstly, invest in a weeklong detox program to get you started. This includes morning and evening sets of supplements to help get you going in the morning and relax at evening, which can be very helpful when you're giving something up. It also includes a lifestyle guide for your detox period and a Jumpstart solution for rapid urine flushing.
As you'll read in the lifestyle guide, healthy eating and exercise are vital to a good detox. Your body simply works better when it's well nourished and exercised. This means laying off junk food for a while and focusing on healthier options. Next, try to fit as much exercise as you reasonably can into every day. Even if you have a busy life, there will be ways you can exert your body instead of using technology (e.g., walking short distances rather than driving there and using the stairs rather than the elevator).
With a combination of a healthy diet and exercise, you may start to see some excess weight come off. This is clearly no bad thing, but it will also release some stored THC from your body fat. For this reason, it may be best to start easing off the exercise on the day before your test, and definitely take it easy on the test day itself.
Still not clean enough? Don't panic!
If you test yourself and still test positive, don't worry. This is where a good detox drink comes in.
These detox drinks work by accelerating the urinary process, basically making you pee more to flush weed out of your bladder. They are also fortified with B-vitamins and creatine to preserve the color and nature of your urine for the adulterant test.
You've already done much of the work in the past week, so this will get you the result you deserve.
