How to Clean Your System From Marijuana

There are many known ways to help you eliminate marijuana traces out of your body, so if you are trying to find efficient ways to speed up the detoxification process, you may benefit from this article. Most of the suggestions mentioned below are not only harmless, but may also help you with improving your overall health and well-being.

Some of the most commonly used methods include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Drinking plenty of fluids
  • Going on a healthy diet
  • Taking herbal supplements
  • Exercising
  • Sweating
  • Taking niacin

Excessive drinking

Just by drinking more fluids than usually you can speed up the whole marijuana detox process. While it hasn’t been proven that water flushes out THC (the main chemical of cannabis plant stored in your fat cells), it can still dilute your urine and help pass drug test.

It is recommended to use Creatine supplement when drinking excessive fluids to restore its lowered level in urine thus masking dilution. Cranberry juice is another helpful remedy known for its detoxification properties, that goes well with this method.

Healthy diet

One of the most important tips is to stay away from fatty foods. Eating high-fat foods can drastically slow down the cleansing process. Consume more vegetables instead. 

Taking herbal supplements

Milk thistle, psyllium seeds and cayenne can be used to enhance your detox. These natural products aid your liver in detoxing your body from various chemicals in general and particularly clean out your system from THC. 


The THC molecules are stored in fat cells and for that reason it would be a reasonable decision to clean your system from marijuana through fat burning. Heavy aerobic exercises, such as swimming, jogging or biking are recommended for that. Exercising will also cause thirst and will make you drink more water thus benefiting your detox even more.


More sweat means less THC. The body sweats in order to eliminate toxins, so exercising or going to the sauna will clean out your system through sweating and also make you drink more liquids, what means that sweating is another good way to detox from marijuana.

Taking niacin

Taking B3 vitamin also known as niacin will flush out your system, help it to get rid of harmful toxins, improve skin health, and even speed up your metabolism, making it work harder and faster than before. Although niacin has many health benefits, you should always take it with caution due to possible side effects, which may include:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Rashes
  • Itching

Human body has self cleansing capabilities, so over the time it will get rid of marijuana residues itself. THC is stored inside the fat cells and for that reason it can take a long time to clean out the system. How long it can take depends on many factors, but the typical range is between a week and 3 months on average. Using the detoxification methods can drastically lower the amount of days it takes for your body to naturally cleanse itself.

There is a lot of controversy on which marijuana detox methods work and which don’t. Different people say different things and what may work for one person may not work for another. It is better to speak with a medical professional before experimenting with any of the detoxing methods.

Usually, most people want to clean out their bodies due to an upcoming drug test, to which they are not prepared for, but none of the methods above can guarantee 100% success. The only proven way to not fail on that important day is to not use marijuana at all.
