Tips to Pass a Random Drug Screening
If you have drugs in your system, is there a way to beat the test? Or are you simply out of luck? Here are a few tips to pass a drug screening, and their pros and cons.
There are few things more terrifying than a random drug test that you’re not sure you can pass. They generally come without much notice, and always at the most inconvenient time. Even if you have drugs in your system, is there a way to beat the test? Or are you simply out of luck? Here are a few tips to pass a drug screening, and their pros and cons.
If you drink enough water, it will dilute your urine so that any traces of drugs are no longer detectable by a test. The problem is, it will also dilute several other chemical substances, such as salt, that are supposed to be in your urine. It will also make your urine clear instead of yellow. Most basic drug tests will flag a diluted sample, and you’ll need to take a second, more comprehensive test.
There are ways around this, however. There are certain additives that you can put in your urine to replace the missing nutrients and electrolytes. You can also drink cranberry juice and other fluids that will help replenish them and flush out toxins from your system. Supplement it with salt to replace the missing electrolytes, and Vitamin B to bring the yellow color back to your urine, and it can help you pass a drug test in a pinch.
There’s a bit of debate over how well this actually works. Some say that if you exercise rigorously before a drug test, the toxins will be expelled from your body via your sweat. You can also get the same effect from using a sauna. However, others say that burning calories before a drug test will actually release THC that was stored in your fat cells, which will then enter your urine and make you more likely to fail a drug screening.
The truth is, both of these theories are correct. The secret is in the timing. Rigorous exercise causes THC and other toxins to be released from your fat cells. Then, those toxins can be flushed from your body more quickly than they ordinarily would. However, it still takes a few days.
If you have two weeks’ notice or more before your test, then exercise the first week so the toxins can be released, then rest the second week, so they can be flushed from your system. However, if you have one week or less until your screening, then avoid exercise, and do your best not to sweat too much during or just before the test.
This is the most practical method for passing a drug test, but doing it right requires a bit of preparation. By substituting someone else’s clean, drug-free urine for your own, you can guarantee a negative result on your test. Most drug tests don’t even pick up on factors like age and gender, so the sample can be from almost anyone, as long as it’s clean.
There are two problems you may run into: First, obtaining clean urine on short notice might be a bit difficult. And second, saving clean urine for a rainy day is even more difficult, as it has a short shelf life.
The solution, if you know you’re in a position where random drug tests are a possibility, is to obtain frozen or dehydrated urine in advance, and keep it for when you need it. They’ll last much longer and make it much easier to pass a drug screening on short notice.
When it comes to drug tests, it’s important to be careful. Many of the “tips” for passing are ineffective, and some can even be dangerous. Make sure you use methods that are tried and true, safe, and effective, to ensure you stay healthy and pass your drug test with flying colors.
