Derived from the cannabis plant, the psychoactive drug known as Marijuana took the United States by storm in early seventies. Centuries before that though it had already been put to use for its medical properties. There are an ever-growing number of people out there today who use Marijuana in a medicinal, recreational or merely a social manner. All of these people will feel the effect of Marijuana’s active ingredient, namely THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol).
When Marijuana is vaporized, smoked or ingested (either in food or in extract forms), the THC contained within is allowed to enter the blood stream along with over 60 other cannabinoids. This is when Marijuana’s well documented effects take place. However, there is a time and a place. With the growing number of people utilising the drug, there is also a growing number of those who want to stop using it. Some people want to get rid of something that won’t look to good on a drugs test and others want to clean out their systems. Whatever your reasons are, a detox is the best way to go about it.
A detox is a period of time when you allow your body to deplete its built up reserves of THC. In order to allow your body to do this the first thing that you will need to do is to stop taking Marijuana in whatever form you are used to taking it. If you continue to use the drug then you will not allow your body to detox. Stopping the use of Marijuana is the only sure fire way to fully and thoroughly detox your system from THC. There are also things that you can do to try and speed up the process as THC has been known to remain in a heavy user’s urine for up to 77 days after their last use.
So here’s what you can do to speed up the results of a detox.
- Detox drinks are known for being one of the best ways to rid the blood, urine and saliva of the THC found in Marijuana. They are for the most part simply a diuretic that is aimed at diluting the urine. There is no clear science to which one works best for which person as each will react differently.
- Dilution is pretty much just DIY detox drinks. The drinking of large amounts of water helps dilute your urine.
- High-fibre fruit pectin is widely regarded as the best way to detox from Marijuana (at least in terms of a urine test). The pectin does not allow THC to find its way to the blood or urine as it instead makes the body express the THC in your bowel movements.
- Several scientific papers have proved that taking repeated saunas can allow a user to excrete much of the THC stored in their body through sweating. This method was once used to treat police officers who had been exposed at different stages of drug manufacturing.
As you can see, there are ways to detox and there are things that you can do to speed up the process. I hope you have found the help you required. Good luck with your detox.
