Over the last ten years, POTUS and the Congress have not only approved of drug testing by both private and public employers but in some cases have even encouraged it or mandated that drug tests take place. These actions have given federal legal authority for drug tests that can override local and state law.
You should also be aware that in some cases, it is against the law to use a drug detox effort at all. This applies to several U.S. states so make sure that you’ve done your research regarding the laws in your local region before doing anything else.
Federal law in the United States, 18 U.S.C. § 371, creates an offense “[i]f two or more persons conspire either to commit any offense against the United States, or to defraud the United States, or any agency thereof in any manner or for any purpose.”
This law was used in 2010 to convict Gerald Willis, 67 and partner, Robert Catalano, co-owners of Puck Technology, creators of The Whizzinator. The Whizzinator is a fake penis device which can be filled with clean urine and used to defeat a federal drug test. Willis was sentenced to 6 months in prison and probation. Catalano got 3 years probation.
This begged the question, can someone be convicted merely for using The Whizzinator or any other detox product? In 2005, nearly 5 years before the owners of The Whizzinator were convicted for making the product, it was in the news. NFL running back Onterio Smith was caught at an airport with the strange vials of liquid, powder, and a fake penis. Airport officials stopped him as Homeland Security flags such substances in case they may be used as a weapon. In any case, Smith was not convicted of a crime but the scrutiny was an embarrassment for the NFL and its drug testing policy.
In 2013, a Missouri man was caught trying to use a Whizzinator to pass a federal drug test. Sidney Levin of St. Louis had been on probation for drug possession and theft. He was ordered to submit periodic drug tests to the court. Apparently, a probation officer caught him using the fake penis during a supervised urine drug test. In this type of test, the tester may look at your penis to be sure it’s real and that the urine is coming from your own body. If they are pathologically interested in your penis or if you make a mess trying to use the fake penis, you could be discovered and if the probation officer is especially ornery, he may insist that you be charged with further crimes. In this case, Mr. Levin was charged with ‘possession of a forging instrument.” Normally, a ‘forged instrument’ would be a forged check or counterfeit currency, but in this case, they seem to be referring to the tool used to commit fraud, which would be like a pen used to forge checks or a template used to counterfeit bills. Therefore, the fake penis is the forging instrument used to commit fraud. So, at least in Missouri, one can be convicted for using a detox product. Other states have laws against using a ‘forged instrument’; however, this may not be the same as having laws against instruments used for forgery, since they can also be used legitly. This is why The Whizzinator is still available for sale. It is sold as a sex toy and instructions forbid it being used to beat a drug test, even though this is most likely still the main reason people buy it.
In 3 states, it is expressly illegal to sell detox products, these states are: Florida, Kentucky, and New Jersey.
In 2 states, it’s against the law to produce or deliver detox products: Texas and Louisiana.
In 9 states, it’s illegal to sell adulterants.
- North Carolina
- South Carolina
Adulterants are substances added to a drug testing sample to mask drug use. Some can be detected but there are products which successfully mask drug use and cannot be detected. A study in the Handbook of Drug Monitoring Methods found “certain adulterants such as Klear, Whizzies, Urine Luck and Stealth cannot be detected by using routine specimen integrity testing. These adulterants can successfully mask drug testing if the concentrations of certain abused drugs are moderate.” This was in 2008, so it is not clear if these products still work and are undetectable for today’s drug tests.
Other reasons for drug tests
Passing a test may also be needed for a doctor’s visit, to participate in sports, whether at college or on a professional level or for a court case. If you smoke weed for recreational, medicinal or spiritual purposes, the sudden need to pass a drug screening can send you into a frenzy of worry.
In some cases, you may not have much notice at all. Regardless of the situation, there are ways to beat a test, even if you smoke weed heavily and on a daily basis. It’s important to know what product or/and method is best for you. The more you smoke, the higher your body mass is and the less effective your body is at naturally detoxing. This may mean you need a stronger approach/product. You should also take into account your budget before choosing a product/method to go with.
So, are there actually any guaranteed ways to pass a pee test? Even science says the answer is: Yes. The thing is, ultimately it depends on the person which method to use. In this article, we’ll explore some of the best options to help you succeed at work and play by hopefully testing clear on your drug screen!
How Does a Urinalysis Work?
A regular urine drug test works on two principles, namely, an antibody phase and a GC-MS test. Urinalyses are the most frequently used drug test. Most employers give their workers a cheap urine drug test thus it is also relatively easy to beat, if you go about it in the right way. More expensive urine tests are rare but more difficult to beat. Urine tests have a two month shorter detection period than a hair follicle test. With that being said, urine drug tests have a longer detection timeframe than saliva or blood tests. Long after weed effects have worn off, urine tests can still pick up on them for some time. This is why marijuana tests are often used to sully the reputation of a person killed by police in the United States. The suggestion is that they must have been acting strangely due to being intoxicated when in reality, the person may have marijuana in the system from having used it as long as one month previously.
A run of the mill urinalysis is known as an immunoassay test. Testers will have you pee into a cup and take your sample for analysis. For the first step, antibodies are used to analyze how they and elements of the sample interact. If the testers find that the sample substances interact in a particular way with the antibodies, this will suggest that there are drugs in the urine. Secondly, you have a CG-MS test, which stands for gas chromatography / mass spectrometry . The purpose of this is to rule out any false positives. It involves the components of the drug sample being separated and then analyzed individually for signs of drug use.
Due to the fact that weed is becoming more accepted, many companies are performing marijuana tests only because they are required to by law such as for safety reasons. As a result, many employers will give their employees plenty of heads up. In the test, it is best to catch the urine in the cup mid-stream. This is because the start of your urine is more likely to contain drug residues.
You will likely be taken to a private bathroom to submit your urine sample. You will need to be ready to produce 2 to 5 ounces of urine. You will be given a collection cup with labels on the side.
Collect your mid-stream urine. This means pee in the toilet a bit, then catch your mid-stream urine, then finish in the toilet. Do not flush. They may check the toilet to be certain that you urinated. They can disqualify your sample if you flush on suspicion that you may have cheated by using synthetic urine or other urine substitute. Try to get 2 to 5 ounces in your cup.
To make sure the urine is fresh and real, temperature must be between 90 F and 100 F. Creatinine concentration less than 20 mg/dL is considered dilute, and specific gravity should range from approximately 1.0020 to approximately 1.0200. Ph should be between 4.5 to 9, normal is 7.
Quest Diagnostics provides these tests for their urine screens.
As you can see, they can detect oxidizing agents such as some which were undetectable in the aforementioned studies. However, such detection may be limited to more expensive tests offered by Quest and may not apply to run of the mill urine tests.
How Long Does Weed Stay in Your Urine?
Weed can generally be picked up in your urine for 30-45 days after consumption. The exact time will vary depending on how often and heavily you smoke. It can exceed the 45 day mark if you smoke heavily every day and have a lot of fat mass. Cannabis may be removed quicker and easier if you’ve only smoked once before or very infrequently. An additional factor that can play a role in the odds of you beating a pee test is how often you exercise and what you eat. Certain high sugar foods can prevent THC metabolites from leaving your body as soon as they would otherwise. This is because they are more difficult to digest and cling to your artery walls. Consuming a lower calorie diet will cause fat burning and can significantly reduce how long pot will stay in your body. However, just before your test, you want to stop the fat-burning to clear your blood and urine of the accelerated leakage of THC metabolites.
The process of sweating detoxes your body naturally while cardiovascular exercise improves your metabolism. So, if you work out on a regular basis, it’s more likely that you’ll be able to cleanse your body of marijuana metabolites in your urine faster.
Weed tends to remain detectable in your urine for longer than most drugs. As you can see drugs like LSD, meth, and heroin only stay in your piss for about half a week or thereabouts. Alcohol is processed by the body at about a drink per and leaves the body shortly thereafter. Most drinks will be out of the system in 10 to 12 hours (assuming you have not drank a lethal amount) and cannot thereafter be detected by standard urine alcohol tests. However, a test for ethyl glucuronide can discover alcohol use within 3 to 5 days.
Detoxing and Detox Remedies
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration has stated that several complications can emerge during a detox effort. Individuals can experience vomiting and nausea for one. This is especially so if an altered consciousness level is a factor. In this case, a person can aspirate on their vomit, an issue which can prove lethal. If withdrawal symptoms feel too difficult to cope with, drug cravings can become extremely difficult to resist. It is recommended that you get the support of a professional should you find that you need help avoiding a relapse. There’s various ways you can remove drug toxins from your system like that of weed metabolites. Certain natural remedies may help with the process of cleansing your body such as healthy eating, exercising, drinking plenty of fluids and visiting a sauna. None of these methods are guaranteed to offer success. Arguably, it is a far better approach to consume manufactured drinks and solutions which feature electrolytes, creatine, fluids and various natural herbal diuretics. Market products and home remedies can both provide a flushing effect in order to remove THC metabolites from fat cells so that they can exit the body. They will also cause a dilution and reduce the proportion of THC metabolites or other drugs in your urine.
Passing a Urine Test Naturally
With any of the following methods, make sure to to do your research about potential side-effects. For any substances/products, please read all of the ingredients and check for any allergens. Is it possible to pass a drug test in 24 hours with home remedies? Let’s look at how to test clean on a piss test naturally.
While exercise can help with beating a drug test, it will take a routine and intensive workout for it to have any real effect. It could take days, weeks or possibly even months to get rid of THC from your system through exercise alone. How long this method will take to work, if effective for you, will depend on how often you smoke weed, in what quantities, and the intensity and frequency of your exercise. You should use cardiovascular exercise if taking this approach. For one, this form of exercise increases sweat which is a way of releasing toxins from the bloodstream. In addition, it raises your heart rate and fat burning This type of exercise can also improve your body’s metabolism, a key component of detoxing.
It isn’t best practice to simply workout right before your test. Instead, exercise should be a part of naturally detoxing your body in general alongside its other various health benefits, done several days before the test and terminated within 3 to 4 days of the test. It can be a part of an effort to help you get a negative result for weed on a urine test but preferably it shouldn’t really be the only approach. Ensure that you keep hydrated and eat healthy too, to give you the best odds of success.
Consume Fluids with electrolytes
Having plenty of fluids is an instrumental part of beating a test, no matter which method you go with. Drinking alone will not be enough to clear your body of THC. Not only would it take too much liquid and too long for it to have enough of an effect, drinking too much water can be dangerous. Consuming too much water or any liquid for that matter can cause water intoxication due to an imbalance of electrolytes. This can prove fatal. So make sure you don’t drink too much but a healthy approach of drinking a little more fluids than usual with some lite salt (potassium chloride/sodium chloride) or a teaspoon of baking soda can help. That is assuming you don’t consume liquids close to the maximum daily allowance as it is, that being 4+ liters. Most adults should consume between 2 to 3 liters of water/liquid a day but going past 4 liters in a single 24 hour period is when problems can start to arise.
Two of the most common detox agents are tea and cranberry juice.
Cranberries can cleanse your kidneys and act as a diuretic. However, this simply conceals evidence of THC. Also, your sample will come up dilute if you don’t also take b-vitamins, creatine, and a bit of salt with your fluids. Electrolytes will help your specific gravity come up normal, creatine will ensure your creatinine levels are normal, and b-vitamins will ensure your pee is yellow (clear urine can lead to suspicion of dilution).
Various teas contain antioxidants naturally such as mint, green, ginger root and Kleen teas. These can work as diuretics to help pass a piss test. However, if you consume larger amounts than usual, you need to balance it with creatine, electrolytes, and b-vitamins otherwise your sample will come up dilute and you will be disqualified or have to retest.
Because THC is stored in fat cells, avoiding high-carb foods can go a long way to cleansing your body of toxins. Plenty of detox products suggest having small meals with unprocessed meat, fresh veggies, and fruits as the primary ingredients. A low carb diet will accelerate fat burning and THC elimination. You need to consume your carb as only fresh fruit and veggies to get phytonutrients. As a result, this means that toxins will be flushed out quicker with the help of natural minerals and vitamins. Food that is high in fiber like beans, fruits and whole grains can also mean faster digestion.
If you do not have creatine,b-vitamins, or gatorade, you can do dilution 2 hours before your test by simply eating a large,well seasoned steak and drinking 32 ounces of tea. A large steak contains b-vitamins, creatine, and electrolytes, everything you need. Have some potatoes and add sugar to your tea because you need to stop fat burning in the hours leading to your test so that THC doesn’t flood the bloodstream and urine. Eating a fatty meal without carbs included may cause fat burning during your test. So, you want a healthy diet in the days prior to your test, but on test day, you need to stop fat from burning.
On top of sweating from exercising, a sauna can also be used for its detoxing effects since it will cause you to perspire. Drinking lots of water is also required for this process.
Despite being an effective approach to getting rid of toxins, it isn’t strong enough to rid your body of THC completely on its own. However, it can be combined with other approaches to improve your detox as a whole. Do not sauna on your own if you are unfamiliar with sauna and it’s safety protocols.
Vitamins and minerals can help in many ways. For example, zinc can be used as an adulterant if consumed orally prior to a test or by being added to a urine sample. It will conceal THC in your system although it could cause an inconclusive result. Vitamin B2 or B12 supplements can be used to add color to your urine, making it less watered down and therefore seemingly more authentic. This is especially important if your urine has altered due to significant water consumption or another detox method. Various minerals may be added to your system in order to replace ones which can flush out during a detox period.
Acetylsalicylic acid or aspirin is generally used as a way to relieve pain, thin blood and reduce fever. OTC aspirin is often used for headaches too. It can affect several factors inside the body to cause a decline in an inflammatory response.
Since 1994 at least, it has been scientifically known that aspirin can reduce drug use detectability. However, you should not be tempted to take large aspirin doses as this is dangerous.
Those who have used aspirin to pass a drug test describe the process as follows.
- Take 4-5 aspirins of 325mg with a glass of water.
- Consider a dilution regimen on top of the aspirin use.
Aspirin is said to help with older EMIT tests and may not fool recent, more expensive tests. However, you can safely take up to 500 mg of aspirin up to every 4 hours for OTC headache relief, and no more than 2 grams per day. More than this can cause stomach bleeding or other health problems. Taking a normal dose of aspirin before your test can give you an added sense of security if you have no other good tricks at the time of the test.
This is essentially a method whereby you attempt to dilute drug quantities in your urine. In the realm of beating a drug test, a dilute sampled can, in more detail, mean one of two things.
- A sample that has been flagged as dilute. This is not the desired outcome of course. This is when testers notice that the color, creatinine levels/content and electrolytes analyzed in the sample are that of a diluted sample. In this case, you’ll either be asked to retake the test or you’ll simply fail outright.
- A sample which has been diluted but has successfully concealed drug use. The testers haven’t noticed anything strange with your sample. This is what you want.
Dilution involves consuming plenty of liquids which may include a popular detox drink like Mega Clean Detoxify for example or just water. Once again, do not consume too large a quantity of liquid in too short a period of time without electrolytes.
The easiest way to do dilution is just buy a detox drink like Xxtra Clean by Detoxify and follow the directions two hours before your test. You can also use your own dilution regimen of creatine, b-vitamins, and 32 ounces of tea with a pinch of salt or teaspoon of baking soda two hours before your test. Lastly, you can just have a large, well-seasoned steak and 32 ounces of tea two hours before your test and hopefully get the same effect.
These are substances which help you pee a lot. Diuretics such as coffee and tea can help in this regard. The more you urinate, the more you dilute drug residues in your urine. With diuretics, you will always need to keep your creatinine levels right while maintaining the color of your urine and electrolyte levels with b-vitamins and creatine to complete your dilution successfully.
Certo Sure Jell Fruit Pectin is another popular home remedy that can be used for detoxing before a piss test. It has buzz in the weed detox community as one of the top home remedies to pass a urine drug test. It’s a fairly safe approach which can detox your gut and that provides fiber. This may be something to add to your dilution regimen if you have consumed weed edibles which may still be in your digestive tract.
There are various extra approaches worth considering. For one, niacin pills are employed by some users in an effort to pass a drug screen. You can take a 500mg pill of niacin with 2 glasses of water and then repeat this no sooner than every six hours for one day. Drinking plenty of water but not an unsafe amount is an important part of this approach (again, any excess water has to be balanced with creatine, electrolytes, and b-vitamins). Finally, take 2 pills both six hours apart on the day of the test. Pop back a B12 supplement right before the test. One major issue associated with B3 is flushing, so be cautious of this risk and don’t take more than you can handle. Another consideration is that of vinegar. It isn’t a very effective tool on its own but used as part of a wider detox regimen, it may help.
There are lots of myths out there when it comes to beating a drug test. In the wild west of the world wide web, it’s important to be separate fact from fiction. The best tool for distinguishing scientifically-based statements from fake news is your own brain. Look for that which is backed up with studies, avoid taking hearsay as fact but also keep an open mind. Consider whether a theory/idea makes logical sense and what evidence there is to back it up. Drug test making companies have incentive to claim their tests cannot be beaten, but it’s been proven scientifically that any type of drug test can be beaten. It’s science, not magic.
One myth that has done some rounds online is that fresh air will help. Exercise can improve your body’s metabolism and excrete drug toxins via sweat but fresh air in of itself won’t do anything. Another idea that you should avoid is overly restricting yourself when it comes to food. That is because a lower calorie intake means that your body’s metabolism will decline.
Also the idea that you could say to the testers that you spend time around other smokers as an excuse for a positive result won’t work. For one, this is unlikely and even if it is actually true, the testers will have no reason to believe that you’re telling the truth. Other myths largely revolve around the idea that certain methods/substances alone can do the job. However, rarely is this true. A full dilution regimen with creatine, b-vitamins, and electrolytes is the bare minimum, adding an internal adulterant such as zinc and papain (protease/meat tenderizer) will give you added support. Since these are all part of a regular diet, you cannot be accused of trying to beat a drug test by using these internally as supplements and vitamins. Often a safe mixture of approaches will be needed to succeed!
In some nations and U.S. states, it may not be directly against the law to use another person’s piss for a drug test remedy, but laws made for other crimes such as forgery could still be used to get a conviction. The same applies for using fake pee. Of course this practice is not encouraged and it’s far from a fail-safe option. A small percentage of people have, however, claimed to have had success with this approach. If used, it’s important that any fake urine sample or the pee of someone else is kept warm ahead of the test. Sneaking it in will also complicate things.
As for synthetic urine, products of this type screen negative when it comes to drug immunoassay tests and have been used to pass the specimen validity testing (SVT) such that it appeared indistinguishable from real urine. Further, fake pee was not picked up by adulteration test trips (Sciteck AdultaCheck® 6). However, it may be detected as synthetic urine with the use of the On-site synthetic urine (Synthetic UrineCheck™). In some cases, direct observation of urinating may be used for the collection stage, an approach used by the military. Quick Fix Urine usually contains an up-to-date urine substitute which will pass urine testing. Be sure to get the latest version as testing companies are always looking for better ways to detect synthetic urine.
Best Products on the Market
In this section, we’ll consider some of the top products out there that you can use to beat a urine drug test. Arguably using one of these products is the best way to pass a urine drug test.
Detoxify XXTRA Clean Herbal Cleanse

Q: How long does weed stay in my piss?
A: Up to 30 days or more depending on how often you smoke weed and how well your body detoxes naturally.
Q: What is the best detox product out there?
A: Xxtra Clean by Detoxify is one of the best detox options but there are many choices and by doing your research, you can find the right product for you!
Q: What if I don’t get a urine test?
A: It’s possible but unlikely. Hair follicle and saliva tests while less common are far from unheard of. There are plenty of detox approaches for both of these tests to consider such as with detox shampoos and detox mouthwashes.
- Some last bits of advice as to how to pass ua.
- Do avoid sugary foods in the lead up to your test but consume sugary foods the last few days before the test and the day of the test. You want fat burning and releasing THC to exit the body far from the test day, but you want fat-burning to stop by test day so that the THC metabolites won’t still be flooding the blood and urine.
- Don’t give in and smoke any weed before your test or you could really jeopardize your hopes of detoxing!
- Do catch your pee midstream in the cup when at the test center.
- Don’t make it obvious that you’ve been detoxing to beat the test such as by bragging about it or leaving evidence of detox products on display such that your coworkers, boss or those at the test centers might notice!
- Do research about what the laws are in your region regarding detoxing, fake urine, etc. before a pee drug test.
- Don’t rely on one method, approach or product. Mix it up, keep it safe and be smart.
Conclusion: Passing a Urine Test in 24/48 Hours
If you’ve been given little notice, you may need to detox for a drug test ASAP. There are plenty of acclaimed same-day cleanse products on the market such as the single day course of Toxin Rid and Herbal Clean QCarbo 32. Dilution and diuretics can also help with rapid detoxification to pass a urine drug test in 24 hours naturally but products like the aforementioned examples are a better way of going about it. Manufacturers like Quick Fix provide synthetic urine as do Monkey Whizz.
There are some legal risks when it comes to cheating on a drug test you must consider. Make sure that the laws in your local region do not prohibit efforts to beat a urine drug test. Also, if you are involved in a court case or are a prospective employee for a federal organization like the FBI, federal laws may ban you from cheating on a drug test.
There are plenty of approaches you can take to pass a urine drug test. Whether you want to take a natural approach (i.e. exercising, using a home remedy, etc.), use a detox product or try your luck with fake urine, it’s important to weigh up your options honestly and figure out what approach will work best for you.
