Dr. Adie Poe, assistant scientist at the Legacy Research Institute in Portland, Oregon, and scientific adviser to Weedmaps, weighed in: “Exercise can release stored THC from adipose (fat) tissue. Theoretically, exercise might help to speed up the detox process, but perhaps only marginally (28 days instead of 30). There is no scientific evidence showing that exercising can speed up the detox process and help you pass a drug test sooner than you would have without exercise.”

People who are lean, they store less THC metabolites in their bodies because they have fast metabolism. But if someone smokes cannabis on daily basis, the traces can be detected in his/her blood or urine.

Dr. Poe explained, “When it comes to passing a drug screen, ‘detox drinks’ don’t actually remove THC from the body or urine. Instead, they trick the laboratory test by artificially loading up the urine sample with vitamins and proteins like creatinine…it’s like adding sugar to coffee. Adding sugar doesn’t change the number of bitter compounds in your cup, it just masks them, tricking your brain into thinking it’s less bitter.”

Which is the best way to detox from THC?

According to Dr. Poe, “the only way to truly ‘detox’ (remove the drug from the body) is to wait it out. The liver metabolizes THC, and its metabolites are further broken down, over time, until there are no more traces left. This process can take 30 days or more for a daily cannabis user.”

The best way to detox your body is the natural one. Just wait until nature removes all the traces of THC from your body. Drinking water, doing yoga, and sipping detox drinks cannot let you detox fast. However, they are a sure way for you to stay relax. 


As much as we all love a quick fix, abstaining from cannabis for 30 days or more may be the only way to guarantee that THC won’t show up on a drug test.
