How to get weed out of your system fast

Job interviews often include a drug test before the company can officially hire you. What if you know an interview is coming up and you really want the job? You do not want weed showing up on the test so you need to find a way to flush it out, fast. There are no 100% effective methods but these things can help you out a bit.

How long does weed stay in your system?

The first thing you need to know is the duration it takes THC to remain in your system after you have smoked weed. THC attaches itself to your fat cells and so it’s going to stick around a little longer than some other drugs. Here are urine test detection period guidelines:

  • Single use: THC can be detected for 1 to 6 days.
  • Weekly use: THC will stay in your system for 3 to 9 days.
  • Daily use: THC can be found anywhere from 7 to 30 days.

How to get weed out of your system fast by drinking water:

Water, water, water! Drink plenty of water. You will need to drink about 16 oz. of water every hour to start flushing out your system. This will make you pee a lot and help carry the THC out of your body. Do not overdo it though; drug testing facilities will know if your sample is too diluted and can make you take the test again. Instead, slow down your water intake for about 24 hours right before the test.

How to get weed out of your system fast by exercising:

Since THC attaches to your fat cells, it is only natural that some can be shed through cardiovascular activity. Run through your neighborhood or around a track, jog in the local park, play football or street hockey with your friends. Not only does this affect the THC in the fat cells, it further flushes out your system because you will sweat and that releases even more toxins.

How to get weed out of your system fast by using diuretics:

In addition to the water you drink, coffee, tea and other caffeinated drinks will help you flush the THC out of your system. Caffeine will boost your metabolism so use that along with exercise to get the biggest benefit.

The big picture:

These methods will not guarantee that you will pass a pee test, but they can definitely help lower the levels of THC in your body. The best thing you can do if you think you are going to have a drug test is to abstain from using the drug. If you do not have the time or do not want to abstain, then try these methods.

  • Drink 16 oz. of water every hour.
  • Slow down water consumption 24 hours before the test so your sample is not diluted.
  • Exercise as much as you can to help flush the THC from your system.
  • Use diuretics like coffee and tea to flush fluids through your body even faster.
