These products are not fool-proof, and may result in a failed drug test or even in some adverse symptoms. So be mindful of that before trying any detox products.
Fluids help dilute metabolites in urine. Metabolites are a chemical produced by the body from another chemical taken into the body, THC COOH in the case of delta-9 THC. Drug tests are designed to measure a certain amount of metabolites, and under the specified threshold, results are considered negative. This means it is not necessary to eliminate every single trace of those metabolites to pass a drug test.
Everybody knows a health-conscious person who drinks some lemon juice mixed with warm water (lemon water) in the mornings. This is because lemon juice increases metabolism, especially with respect to the way that the body metabolises lipids (fats) – which is exactly where cannabinoids are stored in the body. If you’ve got notice for a drug test, start consuming lemon juice in the mornings as soon as possible.
Naturopaths and herbalists often prescribe cranberry juice as a detoxification method, although there’s little scientific evidence to support this. This suggestion mainly rests on anecdotal evidence of success when it comes to THC detox. In any case, the consumption of a cranberry juice beverage lowered the number of clinical urinary tract infection (UTI) episodes in women with a recent history of UTI ; this is the main reason that cranberry juice is used in naturopathic practice.

Be warned: drinking cranberry juice makes your pee turn pink! So try not to consume cranberry juice the day before the drug test, or it might otherwise be very obvious that you’ve tried to detox.
The active ingredient in those little black beans we all love to consume is caffeine, a natural diuretic. This basically means that it opens the floodgates when it comes to urine. Consuming coffee with large amounts of water and electrolytes can help to pass more liquid from the body, and hopefully that liquid contains a lot of the THC metabolites that have been trapped in your body.
However, drinking high amounts of water can result in urine with low levels of creatinine. In drug testing, urine samples should be tested for creatinine, and if creatinine is below a certain threshold (less than 4.0 mmol/L), negative results may not be valid. Many labs specialized in drug testing consider this an obvious attempt at diluting one’s urine, and it has been known to be flagged as “suspicious” (and could result in a positive test, or an invalid test result).
