What are Detox Drinks?

These are beverages taken to eliminate toxins from your body, give your digestive system a good break, boost your energy levels, and improve your overall well-being.

When it comes to drug tests, detox drinks help users pass THC, opiates, barbiturates, nicotine, amphetamines, and cocaine drug tests. The drinks have different substances that cleanse your body of the suspicious metabolites and boost your chances of passing that drug test.

However, the beverages aren’t some kind of magic bullets. When taking them, you need to bear that in mind. Downing a detox drink after heavily using marijuana will not instantaneously remove THC from the circulatory system. Abstinence for a short period alongside these concoctions is required in order to maximize the effectiveness of the detox drinks.

Some of the most popular detox drinks have undergone thorough research and processes to yield the best possible results for customers. At the same time, others are from internet forums and simply require everyday kitchen ingredients to make.


When Do You Need Marijuana Detox Drinks?

There are many reasons you may require detoxing from cannabis. The following are some of the reasons you may need to provide a clean urine sample: 

  • Drug test by probation officer or police
  • Job interview
  • Medical/psychological drug test ordered by a doctor
  • Parents need you to be tested for drugs
  • Entrance into school/college
  • Driving school test

Marijuana Detox

Drug tests usually involve testing urine for metabolites. Metabolites are the byproducts of substances after they have been processed by your system. When you use cannabis, the THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) levels in your bloodstream instantly increase.

After your body clears the THC from your bloodstream, what’s left behind are metabolites. The metabolites are left in the body’s fat tissue for varying periods depending on different factors.

The detox beverages mask the THC in your body, thus, helping you pass the drug test. That means the drug is still present in your system and you need to give your body time to naturally eliminate the toxins completely.

Popular Detox Drinks

There are a wide variety of detox beverages in the market. Below are some of the most popular drinks that can help eliminate different toxins before you take a blood test.

Toxin Rid

It comprises a 3-part detox program that flushes out any traces of drug metabolites from your system. It comes in a bottle of pre-rid tablets, dietary fiber, and a detox solution.

The effectiveness of this detox for the 1-day plan isn’t sufficient enough to ensure your system is rid of the drug metabolites.

The best programs are for 10-day and 5-day detox programs. Depending on the program you choose, you’ll be required to take all the pre-rid tablets for the days leading up to your test and the dietary fiber and detox solution on the actual testing day.

One Shot Concentrate

You can simply gulp down the detox drink then take the two herbal pills with water.

Let’s suppose you’re told you are up for a random drug test in a couple of hours. You can drink the One Shot Concentrate surreptitiously, then discreetly take the two pills before you go for testing. The drink needs about an hour to work.

Clear Choice Detox

It comes in two sizes, a large 32oz, and a regular 17oz. If you weigh less than 200lbs, it’s recommended you use the smaller size.

The instructions for using clear choice detox are quite straightforward:

  • Don’t drink or eat anything for 4 hours before taking the detox drink
  • Steer clear of all toxins for at least 72 hours before your test
  • Shake well before drinking the contents quickly
  • After 15 minutes, refill the bottle with clean water and then drink it all
  • Urinate up to three times within the hour after taking the detox drink

The Ultimate Detox Cleansing Drink

All you need to do is take it before your drug test deadline. It’s ready to drink and no mixing whatsoever is required. It works for all toxins and is undetectable and safe.

It’s effective after an hour of drinking it and remains so for about 5 hours. If you weigh about 220lbs or you have extremely high toxin levels, it’s best to take one and a half detox drinks rather than the recommended dosage on the instructions.

Higher toxin levels and a bigger body mass needs more detoxification which can only be achieved when the quantity of the cleansing drink is increased.

Follow the bottle instructions; however, increase the water amount by 50%, for instance, instead of drinking 500ml of water take 750ml one hour before taking the detox drink and an extra 750ml instead of 500ml of water just 15 minutes after finishing the cleansing drink.

The dosage for this formulation is very precise; therefore, don’t use more than the recommended one and a half as doing so might be counterproductive.

Homemade Detox Drinks

Although homemade detox drinks work, they are often not effective on their own to pass a drug screening.

You should remember that if you’re trying to pass a drug test, then the homemade remedies might not be your best bet. They, however, serve as great aids together with genuine detox products.

That said, let’s take a look at some of the homemade detox drinks.

5-Day THC Detox

This program is based on supplements, nutrition, and exercise to work. The main aim is to stop THC from getting into the bloodstream. For that to happen, you need to take lots of carbohydrates and eat fatty foods.

As for the drinks, take plenty of diuretics such as alcohol, coffee, and tea. These drinks trigger urine production. Hence, the THC will exit from your system fast. Moreover, caffeine is a metabolism booster that also encourages the elimination of THC.

Lemon Juice

Lemon juice has been considered a detox drink in general for a long time now. Many fitness preachers and health gurus support its effectiveness in shifting toxins and cleansing the body.

It’s said that lemon juice is able to flush out THC metabolites from the body in small quantities. It is recommended to mix 500ml of water with a tablespoon of lemon juice. The mixture should be regularly sipped over the next couple of hours.

The goal is to take the mixture 7-8 times over several days before the drug screening. If you’ve been vaping pretty hard of late, makes sure you carry a bottle of the mixture with you to help you take enough.

Sure-Jell or Certo

The fruit pectin helps trap and break down the toxins into smaller metabolites which become easier to eliminate from the body when you urinate. The process takes about 1 hour and can last for 3 to 5 hours.

The detox is easy to follow. You’ll need: 

  • Two packets of Certo- use either fruit pectin or sure jell
  • Creatine monohydrate
  • Two ×32oz sports drinks
  • Multivitamin

Once you have the above, drink as much water as possible in the 48 hours leading to the test. Mix one sports drink with a packet of Certo. Shake the mixture thoroughly and take it the night before the screening. On the actual test day, drink plenty of water 3 hours beforehand. 1 to 2 hours before the test, mix the second sports drink with the other packet of Certo. Drink it together with the multivitamin.

If you are in a hurry, mix and drink a 32oz sports drink, about the same amount of water, and a packet of Certo, three hours before the screening. Make sure you urinate 3 to 4 times before giving your sample.


A smoothie detox with lots of grapefruits, avocado, berries, and spinach will help your body get rid of the toxins.

Nuclear Meltdown

The name itself doesn’t sound too appealing but it does work. The trick is to mix as many detoxification things as you can get such as ¼ tsp of cinnamon, 2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar, 1 tsp of ground ginger, 2 tbsp of lemon juice, and a few sprinkles of cayenne pepper then mix with 16oz of warm water and gulp it all down.

You need to take this mixture at least three times on the day of the screening.

Plain Water

If you prefer to keep it simple, then water might just be your magic elixir to passing your drug test. The point is to drink as much as water as you can. This water will dilute your urine thus causing your pee to clear and masking the THC making it undetectable.

If a drug screening is sprung upon you, drink as much water as is possible in the hours leading up to the test.

But here’s the catch: You have to hold your pee and give it out as a sample.

Although it might be uncomfortable for you and possibly look suspicious because of the clear pee, you have a chance of passing the test.


The most effective way of passing a drug screening is completely avoiding drugs. But if that’s not entirely possible, the market is flooded with detox products. Before choosing the best detox product for you, take time and thoroughly research on the products beforehand.
