Stoner’s Guide to Cheating/Beating Drug Tests

I don’t know that there’s a cannabis enthusiast in America who has not faced a stressful drug test situation (I’ve certainly faced plenty). Whether they’re related to probation or employment, millions of Americans face worrisome drug screenings every year.

Even completely clean individuals break a sweat inside the testing office… Hell, we’ve all seen the Seinfeld episode where Elaine fails a drug test due to eating poppy seeds. It isn’t the most likely false positive scenario, but it is entirely possible. There are countless reasons why you might fail a drug test when no drugs have ever been ingested.

Americans should know their rights and when to exercise them, including (most importantly) those who are doing nothing wrong. If you’re on the wrong end of the justice system, the best-intentioned, most honorable man can be a victim. In this same vein, we should be well-versed in the capabilities and limitations of drug tests.

The Drug Tests (a brief overview)

  • Hair Test Can test back for years, depending on hair length – Generally tested back 90 days – Very accurate – Very difficult (if not impossible) to beat – Second most common test (though a distant second)
  • Urine Test (urinalysis) – Can test back to varying degrees for different drugs, maximum of two months – Fairly simple to beat, depending on drug – Accuracy wildly ranges depending on type of urinalysis – Most common drug test by far
  • Blood Test – Only detects drugs from the last few days or so at most – Impossible to beat – Extremely accurate – Rare, though they are seeing more use in suspected DWI cases
  • Saliva Test – Only detects drugs used in that last 24 hours, in most cases – May be easy to beat – Not very reliable – Most logical solution for future marijuana “drugged driving” charges – Not used extensively in America today
  • Sweat Test – Not really even worth mentioning except for novelty – Hardly ever used, unreliable, expensive, silly

You are now familiar with the tests. I am not a teacher who believes in standardized testing, so I’ll simply take it on good faith that you’ve understood this much so far. As you can see, only two of the tests are used with any consistency, and coincidentally they are the only two that can be cheated.

With saliva tests, there’s really not a whole lot to say. The longest anything can be detected in your saliva is around 3 days (for amphetamines and benzos). The rest of the drugs are undetectable after about 24 hours. If you find yourself getting tested in these time windows there’s little you can do. Your best bet is to simply brush your teeth. Yep, sanitizing your mouth will help to eliminate any of the incriminating chemicals that might fail you.

Keep a bit of mouthwash with you to use a few minutes before your test. If alcohol is tested for, obviously you’ll want to find a good mouthwash without alcohol. It is important to have cleaned or rinsed your mouth within an hour of the test to give you the best possible chance of passing. You would do well to avoid actually touching your cheeks if at all possible during the swab. Try to put it in between your teeth or somewhere where it gets wet but doesn’t touch the inside of your cheeks. I have had numerous positive reports of people using this method to success, but I have not verified it myself or confirmed with independent testing.

The hair test suggestions will be brief. The only guaranteed pass you’ll have is by removing all hair, including body and facial hair. Any hair they can find is fair game. About an inch and a half will get them enough material to determine what drugs you’ve used in the past 90 days. Since your hair acts as a timeline of your drug use, this metric will stay consistent throughout the length (ie-each extra .5 inches will always equal about a month).

Limited success has been had by users who attempt to bleach their hair, or wash it with certain chemicals. One of the problems associated with testing is that the subjects rarely, if ever, see their results. So, a company could in fact hire a potential employee in spite of a failed drug test. Therefore, it is unwise to accept the experiences of people passing employment or probation tests. Too many variables.

Soapbox aside, about all you can do is shave or pray. Fortunately for most, hair tests are not used in pre- or current-employment testing in the vast majority of situations. However, I have personally come across them, so I know they do exist. Occasionally they’ll be used by extremely strict probation officers or courtrooms, but that is an occurrence even rarer than in the private sector.

3/29/13 Update! There have been reports that success has been had with “hair relaxers.” And in fact the science seems to back it up, finding that in certain circumstances as little as 5% of the original illicit chemicals remained after being treated with hair-relaxer.

Urinalysis is a much more exciting topic; the tests are more common, and they can be fooled. The sheer number of different urine tests – all varying significantly in price and consistency – makes for a complex situation. It’s such a tangled mess of confusion, most stressed-out test takers have no concept of where to begin. Let’s begin at the types of urine tests in practice today:

  • Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS)
  • Enzyme Multiplied Immunoassay Technique (EMIT)
  • Radio ImmunoAssay (RIA)
  • Test Cup

“Whoa, what the hell are those names and how am I supposed to know what’s going on? Also, test cup!”

Let’s be honest, nobody really cares what the names of the tests are, we all just want to pass them, right? The majority of the time, you’ll have little idea exactly what type of test you’ll be getting. Websites can be found that contain lists of employers who drug test and the types of tests they administer. But I’ve found they’re often outdated and, frankly, wrong.

The test cup (or test strip) is the most common option in the urinalysis family. This test has soared in popularity in recent years due to its relative consistency, ability to be sent in for lab-confirmation, and low price point. The concept is extremely simple, and thus is pretty damn easy to pass. If you were to heat tap water to 98˚, you could possibly fool this one. Some of them do check for concentrations of creatine or uric acid, but they are fairly rare. Most of time they only check for temperature and drugs.

If sent to a lab, your urine will be tested for everything under the sun, including verification that it is urine. Companies do not check gender of submitted samples. It is prohibitively expensive, and would serve little to no purpose. As long as it is human urine, it will do just fine.

Most Common Tests:

  • 5 panel test – THC – Opiates – Methamphetamine – Amphetamine – Cocaine
  • 9 panel test – THC – Opiates – Methamphetamine – Amphetamine – Cocaine – Barbiturates – Benzodiazepines – Morphine – PCP
  • 11 panel test – THC – Opiates – Methamphetamine – Amphetamine – Cocaine – Barbiturates – Benzodiazepines – Methadone – PCP – Oxycodone – MDMA

You can find tests of any random number of panels, but these are the most common types of preliminary urine tests you will receive. The 5 panel is the cheapest and normally used by over-bearing parents and the like. Most corporate tests or probation offices will use the 9 panel, though the 11 panel does appear occasionally. In most cases if you pass one of those, they won’t bother you any longer.

Only substitution can provide the absolute guarantee. That is, take someone else’s pee and put it in the jar. It may seem like a daunting suggestion at first, but as long as you don’t try a sitcom-esque scheme it is definitely doable. In fact, the most difficult part of the exercise is finding a clean donor.
Facts/methods of substitution

  • Condoms or 5 Hour Energy bottles are your friend – The first step at acquiring your clean urine is to stow it away somehow. A condom carries the concern of breakage, but has the added benefit of being puncturable to provide a convincing stream for nosy probation officers. If concealment is not a concern, the 5 Hour Energy (or other small, thin container) will be ideal.
  • Temp must be in the range of 96-99˚F – The best way to ensure this is a portable hand warmer. Put your urine container in the warmer, and measure the temperature with a thermometer before pouring it into the cup. Another option is to simply keep the container in a warm area on the body. Armpits or other hot areas like genitalia will serve the purpose.
  • Urine can stay “good” for monthsIf left to its own devices, your urine will expire in a room within a few hours. Refrigerated, the lifespan jumps to a maximum of 30 days. If frozen, it can last up to a year! Simply unfreeze when you need it, warm it up, and you’re ready to confidently walk into any testing center.
  • Synthetic urine does work – Do your research on this, some of them are scams. But some are legitimate, and if you struggle to find a willing, clean donor, they can be a life-saver. Make sure to verify you are getting the most up-to-date option, as tests are constantly fighting an uphill battle against synthetic companies.

If substitution is not an option, you’re not completely out of luck. The recommended backup will not (contrary to popular belief) involve buying a “get clean” kit from your local head shop. These are all scams, and most of the time they do nothing but add some basic stuff like B12 or creatine, both of which could be bought without paying absurd markup.

The second option, in fact, is as simple as drinking water. If you drink a good amount of water the night before, the drug metabolites in the urine will be saturated in much more water than they normally would. And since drug tests measure concentrations of these, it can effectively be used as a cheating technique. With anything, you don’t want to go overboard. To begin with, too much water can kill you. Beyond that, many tests have screenings for certain acids in the urine that will also be diluted by water.

Therefore, if you are too successful in your dilution, they may throw out your test, and make you retake it. This could be good or bad, but if nothing else it gives you a few more days to get clean. An option to counter over-dilution possibilities is to take the aforementioned creatine or B12 supplements. Many individuals drink enough water so that their urine is nearly clear, as that is the natural color of healthy urine. So stick by your story that you drink lots of water, and there shouldn’t be much of a problem.

It is also recommended that you do not use the first pee of the day, and that you take a sample from mid-stream. The reason being; when you sleep lots of junk is released by your body for expulsion the next morning. This means there’s a higher concentration of the stuff that can get you in trouble after you just wake up. By taking the test on your second or third urination of the day, you’re helping clear out the crap that has accumulated.

A proven yet more time and effort intensive option does exist. If you want to really ensure you’re going to pass this test, and cannot or will not substitute urine, you can help along your body with exercise. Perform a higher-than-normal cardiovascular workout for a week or two prior to the test. This will get your metabolism pumping, so the THC will spend less time relaxing in your fat reserves.

About 3 days before the test you’ll want to stop, and “fatten” yourself up. Pack on serious carbohydrate-heavy dinners, and it will help saturate the “dirty layer.” This is an effective technique for people who will be facing very difficult tests (including military-issued), and need that extra bump to ensure that they will pass. Combined with dilution, a two week break, and this method, even the most stringent tests will be passed. And, more importantly, passed legitimately.

Now, bear in mind, all of the immediately preceding information is THC-specific. Other drug-related metabolites are not processed in this fashion, so the metabolism-boost won’t help as much. Dilution is going to work for anything, however, as it’s just simply adding more of one thing than another.

Wholly legitimate strategies for passing will only entail a process of waiting. Which I think seems rather boring, but then I do have a tendency to take risks… Anyway, there are many handy charts for this on the web, but since you’re here, I’ll give you the basic time-table:

  • Weed: urinalysis – 5 weeks, blood – 2 weeks, saliva – 24 hours
  • Opiates: urinalysis – 1 week, blood – 24 hours, saliva – 24 hours
  • (Meth)Amphetamine: urinalysis – 1 week, blood – 4 days, saliva – 3 days
  • Benzodiazepine: urinalysis – 45 days, blood/saliva – unclear (likely 30 days for blood, 3 days for saliva)
  • Alcohol: urinalysis – 5 days specialized test (normal test 12 hours), blood/saliva – 24 hours

A more comprehensive list can be found at Erowid, however it is slightly out of date. All of the times listed here are worst-case scenarios, and applicable to chronic users of heavy doses. Abstaining from a drug for the times listed above will ensure 100% beyond any doubt that you will pass your test for that substance. For a single time – or inconsistent – user the detection times will be halved or greater in many cases.

If your sample is sent to a lab it will be inspected with very precise tools. However, these tools are expensive and exhaustible, meaning they are not interested in wasting those valuable resources on everyone’s urine, checking for obscure chemicals they’ve likely never heard of.

Usually, it will only be sent to a lab if you fail the preliminary test. If it’s for pre-employment, they may simply dismiss you altogether, false positive or not. It’s unfair and ridiculous, but that’s corporate America in a nutshell. But if it’s a probation (or any court-related) screening they’ll be – more or less – legally obligated to send it in for verification. At that point, there’s nothing you can do but sit back and wait for your results.

I hate drug test myths, I really do. I used to not really care, and take amusement in the naiveté, but now I’ve seen real harm done because of them. So here are some quick dismissals of urban legends:

  • Bleach does not “clear your system,” or clean it, or do anything. Quantities as little as 4 drops can purify an entire gallon of water. That means every harmful bacteria in that water is ensured to be completely mitigated with 4 drops of bleach. Imagine what a teaspoonful could do to the beneficial bacteria in your digestive tract. I heard a person swear by bleach drinking. She was on probation for an entire year, and “passed every time but once” by drinking bleach. I didn’t ask for her method, but I would assume it included lots and lots of water, seeing as her digestive system seems to still be in working order…
  • There are no legal repercussions from failing a pre-employment test. If you fail, the only bad news is you’ll not be offered a position. But there will not be any officers knocking on your door (because of the drug test, anyway).
  • Tests do not test for gender, age, race, height, menopause, penis size… I believe the same episode of Seinfeld I mentioned earlier perpetuated this myth. Rest assured, males and females can substitute urine for each other to their heart’s content. There is no chance of discovery beyond actually transferring the liquid and keeping it at the correct temperature.
  • No those ridiculous “get clean” tests don’t work. I already addressed this briefly, but it bears repeating. Stop paying hard-earned money for this shit; you might as well spend it on weed. Most of the directions have you drinking so much water, you might start to wonder if they’re trying to help you pass or drown you. Truth is, they’re simply taking advantage of stressed-out people, and forcing them to perform dilution before taking credit for the positive result.
  • “My cousin passed by hopping on one foot while drinking lime juice from a shot glass and then performing three backflips.” Anecdotal evidence aside, drug tests are notoriously inaccurate. Dirty people pass, clean people fail, and everything in between. It’s not a fair game, and the only winners are those who get lucky. You can do what you can to increase your odds, though, and that’s what this page is all about.

Now that all that is out of my system, let’s move past “how to beat the test.” Most people are unaware what a drug test actually entails, let alone what test they might receive. And with fancy names and acronyms like like GC/MS, Radio ImmunoAssay, and EMIT, good luck taking a guess.

Here’s what test you’ll be taking if:

  • Pre-Employment/Promotion- It wholly depends on your employer. I know it seems like a cop out, but it’s true. In most cases, lower paying jobs (like retail employers) will use the most easily fooled type: the test cup/strip. On occasion they are known to use EMIT, but it’s rare, and GC/MS is almost unheard of. You will most likely go into a private stall or bathroom unsupervised to do your business. I have been to one employer who wanted to hair test me, and I’ve heard of some others. It’s a rare practice, but it does occur. In most cases they will not retest if you fail, they simply won’t offer you the job.
  • Drug/Alcohol Related Probation- As with anything in the court system it depends on a number of factors. Most probation programs will also use the test cup. If you fail and maintain cleanliness, the same sample will likely be sent to a testing facility for further examination. If you fail that, you have violated your probation terms and your fate lies in the hand of your probation officer or judge. You’ll want to be clean or diluted, as you will normally be watched by a probation officer.
  • Serious Probation/Job Incident- I don’t know exactly what test federal probation uses, but I would guess the EMIT. For employer-given tests due to a worker’s comp application or a work-related accident, they will almost always use an EMIT or even GC/MS. In fact, I believe the insurance company requires this, not necessarily the business itself. You will go to a testing facility, and likely enter unsupervised in a private room. Real-substitution or a break from usage plus dilution is recommended, as synthetic can be detected.
  • Military The military almost exclusively uses Radio ImmunoAssay (RIA), and you NEED to be clean. You will be closely watched (inspected), and this test is extremely accurate and notoriously difficult to trick. Other high-security-clearance employment positions will also use either this or the GC/MS test.

Many chemicals are known to produce false positives, much to the chagrin of the unsuspecting test subject. Many medications (including over-the-counter) will trip a drug test, as well as some various foods. Some tests have been altered to reduce the number of false positives, but they still exist, and it’s still wise to take measures against them. False positives can even be caused by your own body. For the most part you’ll generally be ok with modern tests, but there are still some substances you’d be smart to avoid in the few days before a test.
Amphetamines:

  • Amantadine
  • Bupropion (Wellbutrin/Zyban)
  • Chloroquine (Aralen)
  • Chlorpromazine (Thorazine)
  • Desipramine (Norpramine)
  • Dextroamphetamine or DXM (Dexedrine, Mucinex, Robitussin, CCC, etc.)
  • Ephedrine (Energy supplements/allergy meds)
  • Labetalol
  • Mexiletine (Mexitil)
  • Procainamide
  • Phentermine (Adipex)
  • Phenylephrine (Neo-Synephrine/Phenergan/other allergy or cold meds)
  • Propranolol (Inderal)
  • Pseudoephedrine (Claritin-D/Sudafed/Zyrtec/various allergy pills)
  • Quinacrine (Atabrine/Mepacrine)
  • Rantidine (Zantac)
  • Selegiline (Deprenyl)
  • Trazadone (Desyrel)

Cannabinoids:

  • Efavirenz (Sustiva)
  • Cannabis Seed/Hemp Oil
  • Pantoprazole (Protonix)
  • Dronabinol/Marinol (only legal in prescribed applications, not always accepted)

Opiates:

  • Fluroquinolones (Levaquin)
  • Ofloxacin (Floxin)
  • Papaverine (Papaverine)
  • Rifampin (Rimactane)
  • Poppy seeds (just like Seinfeld!)

Barbiturates:

  • Phenytoin (Dilantin)
  • Primidone (Mysoline)

Benzos:

  • Oxaprozin (DayproTM)
  • Sertraline (Zoloft)

There are a number of ‘test-proof’ drugs, including substitutes for almost any known illicit chemical available. The following few should go undetected by any of the lower-end tests like the panel cups/strips:

  • *Ketamine – Ketamine has been reported to trip drug tests for PCP, but I have never experienced this myself. I have passed tests that included PCP while using ketamine.
  • *Tramadol – While Tramadol is an opioid class of drug, it does not release the same metabolites as any other popular opiate/opioid. So it will pass panel tests (personal experience).
  • *Fentanyl – Another opioid that metabolizes into unique chemicals that would not normally be included on a panel test.
  • *Muscle relaxers (Carisoprodol, Cyclobenzaprine, etc) – Also known as Soma will pass panel tests (personal experience).
  • *MDMA – This can false positive a test for amphetamines, but most panel tests do not include it explicitly. Be careful with this one as it could burn you with a false positive.
  • LSD – Psychedelics are out of the system too soon (basically when you stop tripping) and are not tested for.
  • Mushrooms – Same as LSD
  • Mescaline (Peyote, Peruvian Torch, San Pedro, etc) – Same as LSD
  • Research chemicals (2c-*, DO*, *-NBOMe, etc) – Same as LSD
  • Kratom – not tested for and legal in most places
  • DXM – OTC so you can do it to your heart’s content. However it can trip a test for amphetamines so be warned.
  • Various synthetic cannabinoids (avoid the banned ones like JWH-018)
  • Nitrous – Legal and probably untestable.
  • Tobacco – only tested for insurance or healthcare purposes.

*The marked drugs WILL show up on a lab test, but the rest will pass.

I hope this information is helpful, I have been through the drug screening wringer many, many times. A page like this is what I always tried to find, but never could. I will continue to update this as needed, but if you have any questions or comments don’t hesitate to leave one below, or even e-mail me at lotus@stonerculture.com

    Thanks a lot for finding the time to explain the terminlogy for the newbies!

  3. sissy Says:

    Curious about how to pass a test from my physician. How do I eliminate the THC from my urine while retaining the medications that are supposed to be in my system?

  4. Lotus Says:

    I’d need to know more about the situation. What do you need to keep and why? It might be doable but I’d need to know what you’re taking.

    Taking a urine test for a farm related retail store, i’m thinking they will use the cheap-o test strip. any thoughts on the niacin/ cranberry pill method?

  7. Lotus Says:

    John, just drink a bunch of water and cross your fingers.

    I drank over the course of 2/12 weeks and have been clean for 7 full days 8 on the day I report….I’ve always had instant read test but I have no idea what tricks my p.o has up her sleeve. What are my chances of being clean we I report on the 8th day. ???? Please help it’s tommorw morning (my test ).

  9. Joey Says:

    I had been drinking for 2 1/2 weeks and stopped the other day that will put me at 7 full days the 8th day when I report….my drug test are instant reads will I be clean by that time. I’m also drinking water and taking multi vitamins and peeing as much as possible. I want to know what my chances are??? Thanks

  10. Lotus Says:

    You’ll be fine, alcohol tests can only read up to a week. It’s very rare that they test for alcohol anyway.

  11. Joey Says:

    I NEED HELP!!!! So I went to report and my p.o surprised me with an ETG test! Never taken one before. All my test have been instant reads. I’m go crazy. I drank over 2 weeks and stopped 7 full days before the 8th that I reported. What the hell is going to happen?? Do I have any chance in hell?? If worse comes to worse what happens if u fail a alcohol test??? This would be my 1st fuck up?? I’m really in need of help….. Please

  12. Lotus Says:

    I replied to your previous comment as well, but you are probably going to be fine. ETG tests don’t go back super far, one week should be enough to pass the test. If you fail the test it’s up to your PO. They could fail you from the probation program, or they could give you a second chance. A lot of it is going to be how regretful/sincere you are if they catch you. But until that happens DON’T ADMIT TO ANYTHING. Act as if you have no worries about the test and that you’re totally confident in passing. I still think you will pass the test.

  13. Joey Says:

    Thank you so much man!!!!!! Thanks

    No, no drug test on the market can test for gender, race, DNA, or anything besides drug content.

  16. TheDude Says:

    I used to be a heavy smoker but had been clean for several months. The weekend of May 4th I shared 2 small joints with a buddy and now I have to take a 9 panel pre employment on Tuesday the 21st. I’ve not had any since. I am 6′ 2″ and 240 and (obviously) not a very active guy. I know having more fat on me doesn’t help… is that amount of thc gonna cost me the job? Can I do anything in the next 3 days to make this work? Feel free to email me, thanks for your time!

  17. Lotus Says:

    I bet you’ll be alright, if you do a good amount of cardio till Sunday, then drink a bunch of water the morning of your test day you should be fine.

    Thanks!

  19. mortimer Says:

    Hi! I have real urine from a clean donor that I just got and I have the test at a lab at some point tomorrow for a job.. do I need to refrigerate the urine over night and keep it in a sealed container or is it fine in a plastic cup with plastic.wrap and a rubber band protecting it??? Because that’s how I have it now… Also I keep researching the best ways to make.sure I have the accurate temperaturefor when I do take the test.. is it ok for me to leave it in my genital area in a secure 3 oz bottle and it will stay warm enough or should I also use the hand.warmer as well… I bought a synthetic urine kit earlier in the day during a freak out when I realized I will be taking one tomorrow but after a lot of research I decided to.go with the clean urine donor route and am using everything in the kit besides the fake piss… So.I have the small bottle with a squeeze top, hand warmers and thermometer on the bottle… Or should I get a smaller bottle that will fit up in me???? My only worry with that is that I was told for lab urine tests theyll want at least 4 oz.of urine.for the tests… Is that true??? Help!! Sorry for babbling but ur site is the only one that’s really helped me and I really wanna do everything correctly since there will be no.second chances once I’m there… Thank u and I hope to hear from u ASAP!! :)

  20. mortimer Says:

    ALSO… After taking it out of the refrigerator in the morning do I microwave it?? If so for how long?? I’ve heard 10 sec… Please let me know! Thank u!

  21. Lotus Says:

    It would be best to store in a sealed container, if you do store it in the fridge it’ll last a max of 24 hours. Bring it out and let it warm up without microwaving it, or you run the risk of messing it up. Since you have something to test the temperature and monitor it while you keep it hot with a hand warmer I’d say you’re set. It needs to be within about 95-100˚ ideally when you go in to test. You can try storing it next to your genitals but that doesn’t ensure it will stay warm enough. You shouldn’t need much urine, just an ounce or two should do it, but more is ideal. You don’t want to come up short. Also don’t worry, it’s not as complicated or sketchy as you think, just warm it up out of the fridge right before you leave, keep it at body temp, then pour it in the test cup :)

    I’m thrilled to hear that our site was helpful! Please let me know if you need to know anything else.

  22. frodo Says:

    i just did 800 mg of ketamine IM last night and have a test tomorrow what are my chances of a false positive for pcp showing up. I think its just the panel test

  23. Lotus Says:

    I’ve been in that exact same boat my friend and I passed no problem at all. I expect you’ll be fine :)

  24. mortimer Says:

    So what I did was ran the bottle I kept it in under warn water then pit it in a condom and put it up in me since I hears being female is the best way to store it and keep it the right temp.. my test was Monday morning after I came out if the bathroom the temp must have been fine since she didn’t ask for another sample.. my only worry is that since its a lab thats doing the test they’ll be able to.tell its not fresh but it looked fine n its now Wednesday n and I haven’t heard anything from the employer about me failing… Do u think ill be ok with the way I did it? Thank u!!

  25. frodo Says:

    Okay thanks! I am taking my test soon and will let you know how i did =p

  26. Lotus Says:

    Yep mortimer, you will be perfectly fine. There’s no freshness test or anything that you can fail at this point.

  27. Lotus Says:

    No problem frodo, please let us know we appreciate the feedback!

  28. mortimer Says:

    Ok great! I’ll let u know, if I don’t hear anything by this afternoon I will be fine and other females should def use this method when substituting! Thanks for ur help ur site is the best one I’ve found!!

  29. mortimer Says:

    Well I PASSED! Thank u for all ur advice and this site.. its great! For everyone thats wondering using a clean donor is ur best bet if u can’t use ur own! Keep it the right temp and it will work!

  30. Lotus Says:

    Congrats and thanks for the kind words!

  31. usually mellow Says:

    thank you for this article! so if one were to abstain from thc for 90 days, and a hair sample was taken that is longer than 1.5 inches from the root, will this still test positive? i.e. if one wants to pass a hair test, does this require 90 day abstinence AND cutting hair to 1.5 inches?
    and finally, is there any way to know ahead of time what type of drug screen will be used for pre-employment drug screens?

  32. Lotus Says:

    The companies only test the hair at 1.5 inches, you can have 6 foot long hair and they’ll still only test the first 1.5 inches. If you abstain 90 days you’ll pass without question. Also look into hair relaxing if you can’t abstain for long enough.

    The only way to know ahead of time is to ask an employee or to try to find something online. Sometimes they’ll tell you in the interview but by then it’d be too late to do anything regardless.

  33. rodger Says:

    Hello,

    I took a UA on Wednesday of last week. I was told my urine was “a little hot”. It was still packaged and I was sent on my way. Should I worry?

  34. Lotus Says:

    No, if they accepted it then you should be fine.

  35. freaking out Says:

    So I haven’t smoked in a couple days but my mom says they r piss testing me in the morning and it says stuff like urinalysis, clean something and culture, idk if they r testing for weed or just usually check, wouldn’t it say on paper? *freaking out*

  36. roger Says:

    Thank you! I thought I would be, but a little reassurance puts the mind at ease.

  37. Lotus Says:

    “Urinalysis” means a urine test, usually for drugs. Make sure you piss early in the morning before the test, drink a bunch of water right after that (don’t kill yourself, just a few glasses or whatever), and you might be able to get away with it :)

  38. usually mellow Says:

    thank you lotus. very much appreciate the info, and your willingness to reduce much anxiety as a result!

  39. allie Says:

    If I have been court ordered to be alcohol tested, will my po also test for marijuana?

  40. Lotus Says:

    Hard to say. Probably not but it is at their discretion. An ETG test does not test for anything except alcohol, however the po can test for whatever they feel like. I wouldn’t risk it.

  41. candy Says:

    Your info is very helpful thank.you

  42. Lotus Says:

    Happy to oblige :)

  43. yungcaprisun Says:

    so i got caught at school with .5g’s of weed and in order to graduate i have to go to rehab before my court date july 2nd. first do you think the rehab place will be using the test cups and sending to a lab or the cheaper ones and i heard that they use the first test as a measurement to see that your levels are decreasing so would i be ok if i smoked like 3 or 4 days before the rehab test? like would the results be higher or the same as if i didnt smoke. please help

  44. Lotus Says:

    You can smoke up until the rehab start. How long is your program supposed to be? If it’s a month long just smoke up until you start the program and then you’ll be clean by the end of it, which is all that matters. If it’s shorter than that you might want to start getting clean a little early. Let me know if you have any more questions.

  45. Rosa Says:

    I was clean 8 days and diluted took a home test and passed took my actual test for pre employment the hr lady said I needed a retake because the test was inconclusive. When I asked the lab I was told it was diluted too much, I drank lots of water but the night before I ate nothing because I was a nervous wreack also the night before I drank some vinegar like an idiot, so the day of the test I had nothing but water. Second test I ate fruits that morning but by test time my pee was clear again however I ate red meat 3 nights prior. I notice also my pee is always clear because I always drink lots of water. Second test I took one at home and passed snuck the dip tip from head shop in my shoe and dipped in their cup at testing place came back with faint line but, it was a line. Handed cup to testing lady told her I cannot produce yellow pee I drink water a lot. What the hell is gona happen? I hope they don’t send it to the GC/MS testing thing because then I’ll more than likely be screwed, I thought they only send it if the test is a positive, I hope they don’t. This time also she took more pee and two vials not one like previous. What do you think they will do with my pee? Will they double check it this time? And this is not for some ngarly job this is for a bs 10 an hour job which is ridick!

  46. Lotus Says:

    My guess is that they’ll probably pass you. It’s bullshit that they retested anyway, but that’s the way it is I guess. I really doubt they’ll send it off, no employer wants to pay hundreds of dollars to test someone who doesn’t even work there yet. And for $10/hour at that.

    If you remember, please update us with what happens, I’m very interested to find out!

  47. worrygirl Says:

    hi–I smoke a few times a month, (maybe once a week at most) and only like3 hits each time, and the last time I smoked was May 25. I have a urine test sometime next week ( hoping i can push it to June 13 or 14) for a job I really want. Do you think my odds of passing are good? I obviously haven’t smoked since and have been drinking a lot of water every day. this site is very helpful btw. thank you

  48. Lotus Says:

    Glad to hear we are helpful! I think you have a pretty decent chance of passing, especially if you use the dilution technique. You are a very light smoker, which means you don’t have much THC to begin with. It shouldn’t take more than a couple weeks to be totally clean.

  49. Rosa Says:

    Hello thanks for answering me, you were absolutely right they did pass me! 1 point for stoners 0 the man. I guess what happened was I was already pretty clean with 16 days of no Mary Jane. But, because I am paranoid I still thought they would double check it.

  50. Lotus Says:

    Awesome, great to hear! Congrats and thanks for updating us, it will help other people in the same situation.

  51. Hired Says:

    Awesome information!
    I am a regular (usually daily) drinker that has been offered a great job, but of course with the caveat that I pass the drug screen. Do you know if ETG testing for alcohol is typically included for pre-employment drug screening? I’m not worried about ethanol in my urine, as I can certainly abstain for that. I’m really only concerned about the more residual ETG aspect (80 hours? really?) Thanks!

  52. worrygirl Says:

    my test will be either Thursday or Friday. i’m kinda scared to drink too much water bc they told me if it comes up diluted i need to retest or it’s an automatic fail :/ in the meantime i’ve been drinking cranberry juice in addition to extra water, and i also have done a few hot yoga classes for good measure. by Thursday it will be 19 days clean, and i am 5’8” and weight 125 lbs. my metabolism is pretty fast bc i never worry abt what i eat and that, combined with all the yoga i do, i am hoping puts me in the clear to pass this test legitimately. I will let you know when i get my results. waiting all weekend is going to suck! thanks for answering :)

  53. Lotus Says:

    Usually not. Only in very specific jobs would that be a requirement, and since alcohol is legal even then it’s pretty rare. I can’t imagine that you would ever fail for alcohol, it would have to be something they said beforehand too. So unless they specifically told you that alcohol would fail you, you have nothing at all to worry about.

  54. Lotus Says:

    You’re lookin’ at 19-20 days with a fast metabolism, low body fat and working out which will give you a great shot at passing. If you were a light smoker I would bet you will pass without dilution or any extra effort. As a heavy or moderate smoker you will still probably pass but you might want to dilute to be sure. If you decide to dilute then make sure to take some creatine and B12 to make the urine less suspicious. Let us know how it goes!!

  55. K Says:

    What do you know about a life insurance tests. Im switching insurance. Took a break from smoking for months for job reasons and recently took a few tokes for 3 days. Only to find out we are switching life insurance companies! I got some time before the test. Nice part is I get to schedule the test.

  56. Lotus Says:

    Not too much, admittedly. They are mainly looking for tobacco use and that sort of thing. If you’ve only smoked a little over 3 days you can likely get clean within a couple weeks. If you’re generally healthy and active, you shouldn’t have too much to worry about. Schedule your test as late as you can, and dilute the day of and you will be fine.

  57. K Says:

    Right on, they do the blood draw and the UA.You never know what they are looking for but can bet they will be looking for anything.

  58. Lotus Says:

    I would be really surprised if the blood draw was used for drug testing. That’s more likely to be for medical conditions. The UA is the only drug test if I’m not mistaken. Either way, the THC lasts much longer in urine than blood, so two weeks should do it for both. Just drink lots of water within a few hours of your test, and follow the general guidelines of diluting. Good luck!

  59. K Says:

    Cool, thanks for all the great info!

  60. Geoff Says:

    Snorted 5mg of oxycodone friday and have a UA test monday mourn. Never used for a week prior and not an everyday user as well. I drink large amounts of water everyday. What are my chances of passing?

  61. Lotus Says:

    Opiates are metabolized a little differently than weed, but if you dilute the day of it will work just as well. That’s a pretty short time frame but it’s possible for the opiates to be out of your system naturally by then, if you dilute you’ll have a good chance of passing I would think.

  62. tulip dawn Says:

    How long do I have to get the clean urine to the refrigerator before it goes bad?

  63. Lotus Says:

    Needs to be done within 30 minutes to an hour, however the sooner the better so try to do it immediately.

  64. Mimi Says:

    My question is if urine goes bad within thirty minutes if not refrigerated, how long will it remain good in a bottle in genitalia area if kept warm?

  65. Mimi Says:

    I just want to know basically how long do I have from time of collection to get it to my drug test facility..

  66. tulip dawn Says:

    Ok so I keep the clean urine in the refrigerator until the day of the teat. Then what if I don’t have a thermometer to get the urine at correct temp?

  67. tulip dawn Says:

    Thank you for your help! I’ve been freaking out the past 24hours!!!

  68. Lotus Says:

    It does not go bad for a few hours at room temp. The 30 minute-an hour suggestion is because of this:
    Suppose it takes an hour and a half to get the urine in the fridge, it’s still fresh. But now you take it out the next day and it takes a few hours to get to your appointment. Now it’s not fresh anymore.

    You want to give yourself as much leeway as possible to get it up to temp and have some time for delays. If you refrigerate it immediately you should be fine for at least 4 hours, maybe as many as 6. But the deterioration is gradual, so the fresher the better.

  69. Lotus Says:

    Glad to be of assistance! If you don’t want to or can’t buy a thermometer, then you will need to rely on body temp. If you have a hand warmer, you can use that to help get it warm, but don’t rely on it because hand warmers can get too hot and that will fail you. Try to keep the container warm with body heat before the test, so just keep it in your groin between your legs. The test gives a little leeway for temperature, so it does not have to be perfect 98.6. Within 96 and 99 will generally be ok, but you’re aiming for 98.

  70. steve Says:

    i drank 15 beers and 2 shots, will i pass the reg. alcohol test 36 hrs. later ?thx

  71. Lotus Says:

    Is it an ETG test or just a regular drug test? Drug tests will only show alcohol if it’s used within like a few hours, but an ETG can show up to 48 hours. 36 hours you might pass but I wouldn’t bet on it or anything.

  72. tulip dawn Says:

    I have one more question Lotus! I found a donor of clean urine but he is prescribed naproxen 500mg twice daily. I was looking online and it stated a few times that naproxen can give you a false positive for THC which is what im dirty for in the first place. Should I try his urine it not?

  73. AverageDude Says:

    I just moved to SoCal and don’t know anyone. I had a friend pee in a mason jar (before I moved), put it in a cooler and continually change the ice. Keeping it super cold. How long can I keep the piss on ice? It’s for getting a job at an oil company. Thanks.

  74. amanda Says:

    I smoked for like 4 days and tomorrow will be a week since the last time I smoked and I have to take a urine test tomorrow… what do I do?? Without someone else’s pee….

  75. amanda Says:

    The test is at labcorp

  76. Lotus Says:

    It’s very unlikely that it would false positive for naproxen. Tests nowadays are made to avoid that type of thing, it was much more common in years past. I would still trust the donor’s urine as long as you trust he hasn’t been smoking, but that’s just me.

  77. Lotus Says:

    Hmm, I would say at least a month or so, maybe 2 if you’re keeping it super cold. If you can manage to get it frozen it can last a year or so.

  78. Lotus Says:

    You can get synthetic urine from most headshops, just follow the instructions as detailed. If you can’t do that, drink a bunch of water, say 3-4 glasses before the test.

    Make sure your first piss of the day is at home, because after you wake up is when your urine has the most THC in it. Then drink all your water a couple hours before the test, and if you can take a B12 vitamin and creatine do that as well. If you can’t get B12 or creatine, try to drink a gatorade along with the water so your urine won’t look diluted and clear. With a little luck you might pass. Good luck!

  79. amanda Says:

    Thank you :-D

  80. amanda Says:

    If I only have b12 how many should I take?

  81. worrygirl Says:

    I passed my urine test!!!!!! 3 weeks of not smoking, plus lots of yoga (esp. hot yoga), water, cranberry juice, and I passed! Did not even try the dilution method :) thanks :)

  82. Lotus Says:

    Awesome, congrats!!

  83. Lotus Says:

    I wouldn’t take much more than the recommended dose. That should be enough to give your urine a neon yellow color.

  84. tulip dawn Says:

    Ok my test is tomorrow and I’m so nervous so wish me luck! I’ll definitely let you what happens! Thank you so much for your help lotus. Your a kind person:-)

  85. Lotus Says:

    Thanks, I’m glad to help! :) Good luck, I think you shouldn’t have any problems. Let us know how it went!

  86. tulip dawn Says:

    Im so sorry Lotus but im going to ask one more question. i just want to make sure I do this the correct way tomorrow. Ok my doctors appointment is at 230 so i will probably be taking the drug test around 3 or 330. When do I take the urine out of the refrigerator and place it in my groan so it will be at the right temperature for the test? Do I need to put it in the microwave at I? thank you for your time and patience.

  87. Lotus Says:

    You can microwave it to get it warm but don’t overdo it. Just put it in for a few seconds, check the temp, put it in again if necessary, etc. Just take it out right before you leave, if you microwave it to get it warm enough, then your body should have no problem keeping it at a good temp.

  88. amanda Says:

    Well I took the recommend dose of b12 which is 1 pill but urine was still clear….. so I drank a red bull…. still nothing… not sure if I passed.

  89. Anonymous Says:

    Lotus I passed my drug screening!!!!!! Thank you so much for your help!!!!

  90. Lotus Says:

    That’s still fine Amanda, many people have clear pee. It’s what’s in the pee that is the problem ;) If the urine was clear after drinking all that stuff I’d say you have a good chance of passing!

  91. Lotus Says:

    Awesome congrats Tulip!! Very happy to help

  92. tulip dawn Says:

    Lotus I passed my test! Thank goodness I found you and you gave me ur knowledge! Peace and love!!!

  93. amanda Says:

    Lol nope…. I failed it…..

  94. Lotus Says:

    Aww shit, well sorry to hear that. I really thought you’d have a chance at passing.

  95. Benzz Says:

    Clean urine is only good for 24 hours in the fridge? I get tested by cup, an also sent a lab. So what happens if I use urine that was refrigerated for like 3 days?

  96. Benzz Says:

    I guess I could freeze some and keep some in the fridge, but I don’t get much notice before a test, so I need to have some thawed each day to be on the safe side I would think. I’m trying to imagine hacking off chunks from a block of frozen pee haha.

  97. Benzz Says:

    Basically just want to know how a clear answer as to how long it is good in the fridge. I was thinking a week would be ok. Thanks

  98. amanda Says:

    It’s alright… it was for a job I didn’t even know was going to call me back, I already have one job so it would have just been extra….

  99. Lotus Says:

    Benzz, the urine will stay good for about a month in the fridge, a year or so if frozen. Sorry if that was unclear. A week should be perfectly fine to store in the fridge. In fact if your fridge is cold it can probably last a couple months, but I wouldn’t want to risk having rancid piss in my refrigerator!

  100. usually mellow Says:

    hi again lotus– i’m coming up on week five of no herb, (which has been a good reminder of its medicinal properties re insomnia, dysphoria, and arthritis). at any rate, while i bought “quick fix”, am thinking of freezing my own samples for the future. your recommendations on the best way to do this? as well as the best “defrost” process?
    p.s. benzz pretty hilarious re “hacking off chunks from a block of frozen pee”!!!
    thank you lotus.

  101. Lotus Says:

    There’s no real trick to it, just get a decent sized sample, seal it in a little airtight jar (like a plastic cup with a lid), and stick it in the freezer asap. Then when you want to use it simply melt it in the microwave, heat it up to 98˚ and just keep it at that temp (w/ hand warmer or whatever) as you travel to the testing facility.

  102. desperate Says:

    I have been on an adderall binge for almost three weeks now. This is my first time trying this prescription drug. The last time i used was Thursday night but I have a drug screening Monday at 1. Do you think I will pass? What should I do to be able to pass? Thank you

  103. Lotus Says:

    You might pass, might not, it’s basically a coin flip. Addys stay in the system for like a week, give or take. You can try to dilute (drink a few glasses of water) before the test to help your chances.

  104. Benzz Says:

    Thanks! Freezer it is

  105. Coupe50 Says:

    Help! I took a cyclobenzaprine Sunday morning and got popped for a 9 panel urinalysis tonight(Monday) will this show up?!

  106. Lotus Says:

    Nope. I’ve used Somas before 11 panels and they do not show up.

  107. Coupe50 Says:

    Thanks so much you’re saving me a lot of stress for the next two days of not being at work!!

  108. Anonymous Says:

    I smoke everyday, basically all day ; i have an interview for a job and i know they’ll piss test me . I smoked today(Sunday) i might have the drug test by the middle if not the end of this week (Wed -Fri ) . Will dilution still work? Ive smoked everyday for the past 5 years, at least 3 grams a day.

  109. Lotus Says:

    It could work but I doubt it. Best try substitution – either get a clean friend to pee for you or buy some synthetic stuff. As long as it’s a standard cup test substitution of synthetic piss will work.

  110. Hanak5 Says:

    Question, I haven’t smoked in 3 weeks. I was a daily user, 5’4″ 160 lbs. I’ve been drinking water, working out (not as much as I should have). I took two at home tests and passed both first void. I thought I was in the clear. I went in today to take a pre-employment drug screen. It was a morning appointment so i got up two hours early and drank two glasses of lemon water and a cup of coffee along with my daily mutli-vitamin . I went two times before my screening. When i went in I gave my sample it was pretty clear but still had a faint color (kind of neon from my vitamin). I thought it looked ok. But the lady came back and said they had some questions about my sample and would have to send it to the lab (medtox i think) She then said we could not proceed in the rest of my physical and sent me home. Is it possible they found THC in my sample or maybe it was just to diluted? Please help, I am so worried. If they did find THC should I ask for a re-test?

  111. Lotus Says:

    I’m sorry to say you might have just gotten unlucky here. Definitely ask for a retest, and what precisely was wrong with the sample. 3 weeks is usually enough time, and since you passed two at-home tests it seems like you were clean.

  112. WildBill Says:

    hey Lotus was wondering is there a difference between a saliva swab,and a DNA mouth swab?,If so what is the max detection range of THC on both test’s?

  113. fibrogirl Says:

    I get random testing for prescription drug monitoring. Can the lab tell if I use frozen urine? I know they do the EMIT or GM/CS testing. Also what is the best way to thaw the frozen urine?

  114. Sarah Says:

    I took two flexeril yesterday I never take them I hve a urine test tomorrow will I pass?

  115. Danny Says:

    I have a ua tomorrow morning and I know that it is for sure getting sent to a lab. But I smoked just yesterday. In a very heavy smoker weighing about 200lbs. This isn’t a pre employment test. It is however a government job and am getting random tested tomorrow. Any remedies here that may help with a test in less then 24 hours??? :( I feel fucked. Straight up.

  116. Lotus Says:

    fibrogirl- EMIT is very easy to beat, GC/MS is more tricky. However, neither of them can tell if you used previously frozen urine. If you can substitute clean pee at the right temperature, you are 100% in the clear.

    Best way to thaw is just in the microwave, then use a hand-warmer to keep it at the right temp. Check it with a thermometer – you’re shooting for 98.6˚ of course, but anything +- 1˚ should pass fine.

    Sarah- You will pass, flexeril doesn’t show up on any standard drug test that I know of.

    Danny- Know any clean friends? The only real chance for you is substitution of real urine. Synthetic will be caught at the lab, and you can try to dilute but I just don’t see it happening in such a short time-frame. If you don’t know anyone who will donate clean urine, I would just drink a ton of water (like near a gallon maybe), and take some B12 and creatine about 4 hours before the test. If you get really really lucky that might work.

  117. joey Says:

    How long does the synthetic cannibus stay in your system?? I dont smoke regularly but I did puff one time like 3 days straight and I didnt hold it in and I have to report soon and im tripping!!!! HELP ME PLEASE!!!!

  118. Lotus Says:

    What kind was it exactly? Different chemicals last different times, and some of them aren’t tested for or don’t show up.

  119. JT Says:

    I recently took a 5-panel lab test. Prior to that I’d smoked about gram per week, consistently, for years. I stopped smoking two weeks before the test. I’m lean, and I passed four at-home tests in the days leading up to the test, so I am confident I passed the initial EMIT (50ng). The thing that has me worried is that I take adderal, which is prescribed to me by a doctor.

    Question is: If my sample is flagged as an initial positive for amphetamine and sent for GC/MS (and I am confident it will be based on the lab I was tested and the forms I filled out), is it possible that pot could be detected at the lower levels (15ng) used in GC/MS tests? I assume it will be detectable given that I haven’t been pot-free for very long, but I’m wondering if, when they run a GC/MS to confirm a preliminary positive for one drug (amphetamine, which I will be able to provide legitimate documentation for), they will retest the sample for all drugs they initially tested for? In other words, will my medicine use trigger a confirmation test that reveals pot which wasn’t detectible at the 50ng level, but will be at the 15 ng level? Or can they do GS/MS looking for JUST the confirmation of amphetamine, (in which case I will refer them to my doctor)?

  120. Lotus Says:

    If you provided a copy of your prescription at the time of the test they shouldn’t send it off. If it does get sent off it will reveal any chemicals in your urine, they don’t usually run the test for one particular substance. People can and do use GC/MS for initial screenings, but they’re much more expensive than alternatives.

  121. Steven Says:

    Ok, so I smoked about 1 bowl a day… I havent smoked in 20 days and I have a drug test monday (8/5). I took sure jell/ gatorade today because I thought my test was today… what can I do to ensure I pass the test? I am 6’1” tall, 245lbs, and have a slow metabolism.

  122. Steven Says:

    Oh and I know I have an 11 panel test at a lab… thats about all I know though… I mean I didnt smoke like a s%&t ton every day… just enough to get a good buzz…

  123. JT Says:

    I offered it to the nurse who administered the test; she declined to look at it. She said, “If they find anything in the sample, a doctor will call you, and you can provide relevant information then.” What a shame. I was under the impression that I could give them the prescription at the time of testing, which would account for the adderal in my sample, and thus avoid having it sent for GC/MS.

  124. Lotus Says:

    JT- Yeah that is annoying. They may not send it off though, especially since you told them upfront you do have a prescription. Once it gets flagged they might just ask for the script and that’ll be that. Good luck, hope it works. Please let us know what happens!

    Steven- You have a pretty good chance of passing without any help. I would recommend just drinking a lot of water the day of the test. Make sure you take a piss when you wake up, so that your first piss is not at the test. When you sleep stuff builds up in your bladder and it can make the THC metabolites more concentrated. Take some creatine and B12 to give your urine the right color and content, and that should do it!

  125. JT Says:

    Got a call from the MRO today–he said, to my immense relief, that he’d found something in my sample which he guessed was Adderall (it was). I told him what I’d hoped to explain to the nurse in the first place: I am prescribed it and take it under the advice of a doctor. He was very polite and asked me to take a photo of my script, email it to him “and then we’ll be able to get all this finished up for you”. Sent him what he asked and got another call a few hours later saying I was all set and he’d told my future employer that my sample was clean and negative. I feel like a million bucks.

    Lesson learned. I’m slim and while I don’t “work out”, I hike often. As I mentioned up thread, while I smoke about 5x/week, it is a small amount at once (a gram or possibly a bit more per week, for years). If you’re in the same camp, you may also be able to get clean enough to pass a urine test by totally abstaining for two weeks. I’m not sure if the GC/MS test that was used to confirm the amphetamine in my system just didn’t detect any THC metabolites, or if the GC/MS is only used to find the specific substance that was found in the EMIT test. Either way, I’m elated and I wish anyone who faces a similar situation good luck. My advice: stop smoking immediately, get exercising until a few days before the test, and above all, stay calm. I have been so stressed about this it’s kept me up nights and I only wish I had been a bit more levelheaded and less irritable in the past few weeks. Best of luck and Lotus, thanks for your input.

  126. desperate Says:

    I took 15 norcos within a two day period seven days ago!! I will have a urine drug screening tomorrow. Do you think I will pass??

  127. dj Says:

    Bro I got a probation meeting in like an hour and I smoked a bowl last night what should I do

  128. Lotus Says:

    dj- Unfortunately I think I’ve seen this about an hour too late. But I don’t think I could have helped you in any case, good luck.

    desperate- I really think you will pass, but I can’t guarantee anything. Drink a good amount of water before your test and follow the normal guidelines for dilution and you’ll have a great chance.

    JT- Thanks for the update, we really appreciate it! Awesome to hear you passed and weren’t given any extra suspicion. Are you sure the doctor sent it off for GC/MS screening? That usually takes a week or two, he might not have sent it off at all.

    Big s- You have a lot of options. You could keep a sample of clean piss in an ice chest and start warming up once you get there with a hand warmer. That’s what I would do. If that’s not possible for whatever reason, then the synthetic will work fine assuming they don’t verify the sample with a GC/MS. They shouldn’t, but shit happens. I don’t think you would pass naturally after only a week, so I would go with substitution.

  133. Sharptooth Says:

    Lotus you seem awesomely knowledgeable… I have been an everyday smoker for a couple years with exceptions of a week-month long breaks every blue moon. This summer starting in June I have been smoking twice a week and exercising nearly everyday. I have a pre-employment test that they send off to a lab on thursday. It will be a week of no smoking with lots of exercise when I take the test. I drank a measuring cup of vinegar tonight and the test is on the 8th. I plan on continuing to exercise the next couple of days and pound water. What are my chances? And what would you reccomend? Thank you!

  134. Sharptooth Says:

    Oh and I’m 5’10 about 170 with not much body fat

  135. JT Says:

    “Are you sure the doctor sent it off for GC/MS screening? That usually takes a week or two, he might not have sent it off at all.”

    Nope, I guess I’m not. I guessed that they had because three business days had elapsed before I got the call, and my understanding is that any positive result on an EMIT is treated as preliminary prior to confirmation with a GC/MS. But I’m not sure exactly what happened–perhaps they call the patient after a positive on an EMIT, before going the GC/MS route. Making a phonecall to someone to get proof of their prescription avoids the expense of an additional test. In any case, thanks.

  136. Lotus Says:

    JT- No problem, glad to hear it worked out for ya. Have a good one.

    Sharptooth- Thanks! Your chances are probably about 50/50 right now. You could pass but I wouldn’t expect to and I wouldn’t be surprised if you didn’t. You’re doing most everything right with the exercise and water. Vinegar seems unnecessary.

    I would honestly recommend trying to get some clean piss from a friend, if at all possible. Otherwise just drink a whole lotta water the day of the test and make sure you don’t take the test first piss of the day. Also taking some B12 and Creatine will help make it look less suspiciously diluted. Good luck! Let us know what ends up happening.

  137. D Says:

    Friend was tested after further analysis at a lab(post urinalysis) and being tested for everything that the test said he should be, for soma. Now, my thought is that the doctor didn’t say anything, but is it possible that on urine test which tested for barbituates, it showed a very little slight amount of something that the doctor wanted to make sure what metabolites of that particular barb was? When he mentioned a week later that the test showed soma, my friend was flabbergasted. He didn’t know that soma can break down into a barbiturate, luckily for him, the doctor wasn’t concerned. Why do you feel that is? The poster seems very knowledgable, and when mentioning about testing for things like Flexeri(not broken down to a barb) and Soma, you emphasized that doctors basically do not really care if it does? Is it because it truly isn’t one of the more concerning types of barbituates and because of it’s relatively short half-life amongst the fact most people I would assume do not understand the molecular chemistry behind this muscle relaxer, no harm was done? I know it could potentiate well with opiates, but he tested negative for that. Is that a probable cause for this pain doctor to NOT be concerned? Even though, I bet this patient won’t be doing soma in the near run again, LOL>
    Any feedback from the guy who wrote this is greatly appreciated

  138. D Says:

    To the above poster before mine that says Soma does not show up, while it doesn’t during the urinalysis, if taken 24 hours prior to the test, a small amount under barbituates should he/she have taken the panel that does include barbs as one of the drugs tested for would show up if taken for further lab results. The metabolite(Miltown) is the barb that would show up if lab testing and further analysis was required. However, if one takes it a week prior to any test and even if it goes to the lab, I doubt that bar will show up unless taken every day in large amounts.

  139. Dan Says:

    I am in ab canada and am going to use a female friends urine. I am male. There is 100% chance I will pass? They wont check at all? It will be clean. I know you said it wont be detected but I am paranoid…lol I am a pot smoker

  140. Lotus Says:

    Dan- Yes you will be fine, there is no way to check for gender.

    D- Somas can false positive for other drugs, and then if they run a secondary screen they can verify if it is or isn’t any number of chemicals. I have personally done soma up to and during a UA, and it did not trigger a positive at all. If it showed a false positive then that was just unfortunate luck.

    Also, when screening the results in a lab, the doctor may have only tested for barbiturates in particular, and perhaps didn’t test for the presence of metabolites relating to Soma. Somas are not a barbiturate, if they showed up as such it was just a flawed test. Thanks for reading!

  141. Dan Says:

    Thanks man!

  142. Deano Says:

    I went to a job interview this morning & they gave me an on the spot drug test. It was a cotton swab I had to put in my mouth for 4 mins. I was afraid to saturate it with saliva & it did not register any results. They had me do it again with the same result, nothing. so she told me I would have to go the the lab within 48 hrs the form says its a 6 panel (10-6ST-200) Do know if this is a swab or piss test? I asked & she said its a swab. I am 6 foot 150 lbs with very little body fat.I smoked yesterday & have been clean for 24 hrs. If I wait the 2 days to take it I will be clean 72 hrs.. Does dilution work for the saliva test too? Any advice would be greatly appreciated
    Love the site!
    Thanks

  143. Lotus Says:

    Deano- That 10-6st-200 test is a urine test. Dilution doesn’t work for a saliva test, but they usually only detect within like 48 hours or so.

  144. Deano Says:

    Thanks Lotus now I’ll be prepared. Have you heard of Dr Greens agent X I passed using that a few years ago
    Thanks Again

  145. Cujo Says:

    Alright, so I was a moderate smoke up until about a month ago..I smoked 8 days before my urinalysis but hadn’t smoked for 2 1/2 weeks before that..then I passed a take home drug kit with a very faint line under the control line..so a few hours before my drug test I took ‘clear flush liquid total body purifier’ took the test about 2 1/2 hours after drink the flush and I pissed 2-3 times between consumption and the test..well when I took my test, my piss was glowing neon yellow! The lady cracked a joke and mention how this generation drinks too many energy drinks. But then I know the results were sent to a lab…should I be as paranoid as I am right now? Took the test Thursday..and it’s Tuesday. I know it was UPS’d somewhere. Pre- employment for Windham resort

  146. Lotus Says:

    Deano- I can’t speak for Agent X personally but I have heard good things. Keep in mind that they change the tests every so often to catch these synthetics, so just make sure it’s still up to date and it should work. I would advise against smoking before the test because they might do a saliva swab at the time of the UA. Maybe not but just in case.

    Cujo- Those body purifiers are pretty much just some basic B12 and creatine with instructions to drink a lot of water. Assuming that’s the case, you should be perfectly fine. And next time just buy some B12 and creatine pills and a gallon of water, it’ll cost you way less than you spent on the kit :)

  147. Cujo Says:

    Finally an answer that gives me some piece of mind! Thanks!! Ill post and let ya know when I get the job!

  148. Lotus Says:

    Good luck Cujo!

  149. Cujo Says:

    Got the call, passed the test, got the job!

  150. Lotus Says:

    Hell yeah, congrats Cujo and thanks for the update!

  151. dragon man Says:

    question may have hair test at some point but it should 85-90 or more just stopped-energy sector on drill rigs-pays great but no room for error in this job so I get it! Will the fact that I take a cytoxic drug(RA) interfere with my hair test turns my hair white to grey further destroying cell growth. Will I be in good shape at 90 days no use? or longer if they want hair. I am clean naturally at 30 days brcause I am thin over all and have high metabolism. Questions or Comments appreciated.

  152. N00b smoker Says:

    So. Being a moron, I lost my job last month and my friends decided to get me high so I could chill out about it. I’ve been smoking once or twice a week since then, the 13th was the last time I did.
    Now I have an interview, because god has a shitty sense of humor. So my piss test isn’t even scheduled yet and obviously I’m not smoking until after my test but with a week and a half clean, plus lots if water, should I be fine? I’ve read that with regular smokers it can take a month to clean up out of the system. Is that something I have to worry about?
    Freaking out a little, which makes me wanna smoke, which is more proof that god has a shitty sense of humor.

  153. mevil96 Says:

    Soo im pretty sure i have to drop on wednesday and ive been smoking for ever but havent today i really need to get clean or ill get a violation of probation have any tips thatll help me minus drinking lots of water.

  154. Lotus Says:

    dragon man- First off, sorry about the arthritis that shit sucks. Second, 90 days of no smoking will pass you on any type of test without question. In fact the cytotoxic drugs would probably clean you out more than anything. Let me know if you have any more questions and good luck!

    N00b smoker- You could pass with a couple weeks clean, you could also fail. It’s about a 50/50 chance. I would try to substitute clean piss if you can, and maybe consider synthetic. If you don’t want to do either of those then I’d go for dilution (and try to exercise a lot the few days prior to the test to sort of “burn it out”). Let me know if you have any questions about dilution and whatever else!

    mevil96- Substitute with clean urine or synthetic urine and be very sneaky about getting it in. I really doubt you can pass by any means in 2 days!

  155. Lee Says:

    I’ve hardly smoked in my ten months on probation. Smoked a blunt Saturday night after checking in get called for piss test toDay. What do I do ? 6’2 240. I can’t lose my fam again. Such a dumb decision. Since its only a blunt worth can dillution work ? Iono. Need help by Thursday. Can’t substitute

  156. Lee Says:

    If I fail I think I’m gonna seriously kill myself. So damn stupid. I hate weed.

  157. Lotus Says:

    Lee- Well, if you can’t substitute then your only chance is dilution. If you really only smoked one blunt in 10 months on Saturday, you might just get lucky and get away with dilution. I remember being in your position sweating bullets in the bathroom at the courthouse. Either way, don’t kill yourself even if you do fail, they might give you leniency you never know!

  158. inahet Says:

    I have a urine test for life insurance at my job tomorrow morning. I’m a heavy smoker and have been for some years, of course with a tolerance break or two in between. I do hot yoga at least 4 times a week and drink over 64 oz of water everyday. I’m 5’2 124 and just lost a bunch of weight. I’m a little scared right now haha

  159. Thomas Says:

    i have a drug test in the next 2 – 3 weeks, i stopped smoking today and i am buying probiotic supplements and chromium to help clean out my system and will be exercising regularly from now till then , i smoked most days and i am ‘big boned’. The test is a urine test should i pass? please help!

  160. Dub Says:

    Hey Lotus great advice btw…been doing a lot of reading up and you def got some knowledge…props! So my question is I already have clean urine Im substituting from my girlfriend (only person I know who doesn’t smoke) and got a bunch of hand warmers, but I’m thinking the hand warmers are going to set off the metal detector that I have to pass through before seeing my po…any other suggestions on how to keep the urine between 94 – 98 degrees? Maybe just take the hand warmers off before I go into the courthouse? Or any other thoughts on a method of keeping the urine at the proper temp that can make it through a metal detector?

  161. Lotus Says:

    inahet- Hmm now that is a unique situation. To my knowledge the insurance test is not an employment test so the HR dept. shouldn’t be notified officially of any failing. As far as I know you should not suffer any consequences from the insurance test, as they are mostly testing for diseases and things like cigarette use. Now your employer could be notified unofficially and every employer has a right to “random” drug testing, so it is possible you could get screwed. Your body type and habits do well to rid your body of THC metabolites, but I don’t know that you will pass any test if you smoked recently. I’m truly sorry but I don’t want to tell you anything to mislead you, and I honestly do not know what exactly happens under these circumstances. Please let us know what ends up happening.

    Thomas- You will have a good chance of passing. Keep up with your strategy and dilute the day of your test to give yourself the best possible opportunity. Good luck!

    Dub- Thank you very much for the kind words! Much appreciated. If you are afraid of metal detectors, try keeping it in a warm body part. Either between your balls and body or under your armpit. These will give you the best heating, and you’re trying to keep it at body temp. anyway so that should work better than anything. Keep a thermometer with you to make sure the sample is hot enough – if it drops too cold then either run it through really hot water at the courthouse or figure out some other way to get it hot.

    Keeping the hand warmers on till you enter should be fine, however on my own probation it has taken a long ass time to finally get to piss before so be careful to keep it warm after you take the hand warmers off. You can also try to get to he courthouse early, take the hand warmers in cold, and just activate them after you get past the detectors. That way if you get discovered nobody will be suspicious of your inactive hand warmers. By the way, try to use the thinnest possible container to allow for the best heat transfer from your body into the liquid. Condoms would work well, however they are prone to breaking so I cannot suggest that method unless you are extremely careful, and maybe even have a spare handy!

  162. Shinny Says:

    If my test site refrigerates the sample then sends it off to a lab will synthetic urine work?

  163. Lotus Says:

    No, the lab will test for certain metabolites that synthetic likely won’t have. It could work I guess, but very unlikely to.

  164. Thomas Says:

    Thank you lotus!

  165. coco Says:

    Ok last time I smooked weed was july 17 had a drug test done on aug 7 but I took a medication that was prescribed to me me for pain narproxen 500mg so that following thrusday I think was the 15 of august the MRO called to ask what can of medication have I’ve been taken so I told him what I was prescribed so he said ok and said that the test would be cancealed and it will be up to my employer to retest me. The last time I took the meds was on the 6th of august so today which is august 22nd I was told I need to go and retake the test. Should the medication be out of my system and on top of that its been 36 dayz since I last smoked in all most 3 years. When I got that call from the MRO I started drinking more H20 and some detox tea before the test today. I did pee this morning before the test and when I took the test I pee mid stream do I have anything to worry about this time my pee had color to it I take multi vitamines everyday first pee test I drank so much water it was clear just had a lite color to it. Should I be worried or am I ok.

  166. coco Says:

    Meant to say I have not smooked weed in 3 years but hanging with a friend I decided to take a few hits and that was on the 17th of july been clean from that for 36 dayz.

  167. Lotus Says:

    coco- Yeah you will be fine, no question. Naproxen should not false positive anything illegal, you should pass just fine without any special treatment. I don’t know how long Naproxen takes to come out, but I would assume it’s not more than a week or so.

  168. coco Says:

    Thanks I will keep you posted to let you no I still got a job never had this happen to me before not because of a medication.

  169. Lotus Says:

    Sounds good, thanks for reading and good luck!!

  170. Pogo Says:

    Hello, I just wanted to say this is the most objective and informative page on this topic I’ve ever found and wanted to contribute my experience. I have been a chronic smoker for 1.5 years (multiple GBs a day with minor 2-5 day breaks here-there) and had to take a labcorps 9-panel UA for a retail position today. I haven’t smoked at all in 20 days, and was lightly smoking a vape and the leftovers for a few weeks prior to abstaining. In addition to diluting and taking some b-12 today I have taken a few creatine pills here and there for the last week or so, plus I’m rather lean and muscular and actually dropped about 10lbs while moving this month (im now 143lb 5’10″). I know I’ll very likely pass, but between having some pretty intense anxiety/depression history and a 20-day break in my self-medication, I’ve been extremely worried over it. I’ll be sure to post results when I hear for sure, but thank you for keeping this message thread current, it makes me feel a lot better to read all the accounts and be able to contribute in the discussion.

  171. Lotus Says:

    Thanks for the kind words! I think there’s no higher praise than hearing our website has helped people in some way, so I really appreciate hearing that.

    Please do update us with the outcome. As you said you have a good chance of passing, so I wouldn’t get too worked up about it. Plus, I think of it like this – if an employer isn’t willing to hire you because of a (inaccurate, privacy-invading) drug test, it’s probably a bullet dodged. But I sympathize, I’ve been in a position where I needed a job and those tests are always nerve-wracking. Good luck!

  172. coco Says:

    I’m still waiting no call from no doctor took the test on august 22 the lab where it was sent are closed on the weekend. But checked fedex tracking and it got their on august 23 so that for bizness days. Just worried and tired of the waiting. Now last time it took 6 days for MRO to call about meds I took. To I’m thinking for this friday the 30th makes 6 days so it I don’t here anything that should mean I’m cool I just hate waiting thinking the worst.

  173. Pogo Says:

    Well I got the job so everything worked out! Hopefully I won’t be in the same boat for next time, got a clean substitute source now.

  174. Lotus Says:

    Pogo- Thanks for the update, awesome to hear you passed! I’m sure it will help someone in the future to hear your experience. Happy smoking

    coco- Yeah the waiting sucks more than anything sometimes. But no news is good news usually with regards to drug testing. I suppose you won’t hear anything till Tuesday thanks to the holiday.

  175. underpressure Says:

    Hey all! I’ve been reading all the posts and I’m encouraged by the abundance of success stories by all those who have passed. Unfortunately, I’m in the same situation as I have to take a pre-employment ua. I have been smoking everyday for many years now (approx. 1g a day of low-mid grade smoke). I stopped smoking about 5 days ago and have been doing rigorous cardio for at least 30mins a day and drinking lots of water. I’m 5’7″ 125lbs (approx 10% body fat, or less?) with the metabolism that allows me to eat anything and not gain a pound. I have already been hired on the condition that I pass this test. I have the option to schedule it when I want but sooner is better than later you know? I was wondering what you would think my chances could be of passing if I take the test 9 days after being clean and continuing to do the cardio and obviously drinking tons of water, or if I should try and wait a little longer. I appreciate the help!

  176. Lotus Says:

    I would really try to wait longer. You would be cutting it extremely close at 9 days. Even at 14 days you’ll have maybe a little better than 50% chance. If it were me I’d go as long as I could possibly get away with (maybe use the old family trip excuse). If you can get out as far as maybe 3 weeks you would be golden.

  177. coco Says:

    I think I’m good friday thet 30th made 6 dayz it doesn’t take that long to get results back. I’m still working managers have not called me in to let me go. How long does drug test results to come back I figure a week and 1 day should be done.

  178. Lotus Says:

    You generally know within 1-3 days. GC/MS results can take a couple weeks, but there’s no reason they’d send it off for that as it’s way too expensive.

  179. coco Says:

    What is GC/MS I just took a regular drug test don’t no the lango?

  180. Lotus Says:

    Yeah you didn’t take a GC/MS, don’t worry about that. But it means Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry. It’s a very accurate test that can separate between any type of chemicals or metabolites and determine exactly how much and what is in your urine.

  181. Angela Says:

    Hi. I took 6 20mg doses of amphetamine salts (generic adderrall) last week from Thursday to Wednesday. I have a drug test (urine) for pre employment tomorrow (Tuesday). So 6 days since last taking one. Will I be ok??

  182. Lotus Says:

    Hey Angela, you should be perfectly fine with 6 days clean. It usually takes 2-3 days for traces of adderall to leave your urine.

  183. coco Says:

    I guess I’m good its been 9 dayz since my drug test and I’m still employed I’ve learn a real lesson leave that smoke alone. I will stick with my alcohol beverage on the weekends. Thanks for your support this was the most nerve racking experience I’ve been through.

  184. Shmeegs Says:

    So far I have found this feed to be very helpful, but i have a rather specific question. I was supposed to take a drug test this morning so my roommate peed in a Ziploc bag for me and i taped it under my boob to keep it warm. The test got rescheduled for tomorrow, and this is kind of gross I know, but I was unable to go home right away, I had to keep it on me for a few hours. Its been at 98 degrees the whole time, and I put it in the freezer when I got home, but I’m not sure if because it was warm for so long it has gone bad. I know her pee is clean, despite the fact that it looks like apple juice, but again I’m not sure if its smarter to try and flush out my system before tomorrow or use hers. The last time I smoked was a week ago, but I’d rather be safe than sorry. Help???

  185. Lotus Says:

    Shmeegs- Should still be perfectly fine. You got it to the freezer within 24 hours right? If so it should be fine. Also you might consider transferring it to a more secure container… ziploc bags are very susceptible to leaking. A well-cleaned 5 hour energy bottle would probably work, though I’d invest in a hand-warmer and thermometer to make sure you keep it at the right temp. Good luck! Let us know how it goes :)

  186. Passafist Says:

    Lotus,
    See your VERY knowledgeable on this topic, I’m freaking out right now……
    I’ve been waiting on a call back from pain mgmt (got hit by some Asian lady when i was walking) for some time now, and now they can see me on tues. I get scripts for attivan, and vyvanse but dont really take either (since wed). I smoked less than an 1/8 during Aug 17-25. Im like 6’6 and 240, and I KNOW they will probably do an in office 5 panel. Whats your guess on my fate? Probably going go hit the rx today and buy a thc test.

    (Its stupid if you smoke on occasion you cant get relief from pain…. my L 1-5 is gone and i have a fucked up S1)

  187. Passafist Says:

    Also – when i smoked an 1/8 a DAY, i peed hot for 45 days or so. If that helps at all. Want the THC test but im strapped right now as every penny i have is going to this appointment…. Its 225$ because i dont currently have insurance :\

  188. Passafist Says:

    Update:
    I just took a First Check Test for THC and it came out – :-D.
    It says on the box “98% accurate” with free verification. On the litmus you could KIND OF see the + line but im confident that the test shows it like that when the strip gets wet. It was less than faint in full sunlight.

  189. Lotus Says:

    Hey Passafist, sorry to hear about your pain and your situation. I agree it’s beyond shitty that if you are a recreational weed smoker they think you’re drug-seeking in all instances. Anyway back to the topic.

    Are you sure you’re reading the test right? Double check the instructions. Usually the colored line shows up when you’re clean, not when you fail. But in any case, if the line shows up at all that’s your result. Even if it’s just barely there.

    For how much you’ve smoked you should probably pass by the time you take your test on Tuesday. Not 100% but most likely.

  190. Passafist Says:

    Yah i actually did misread it….. fml. I pulldd it out of the trash a little bit after and the line was a tiny bit more visible. Felt like i was taking a damn pregnancy test – now i know how a woman feels………. im just going to drink maybe a half gallon of extra water the next few days. I took the test on my first pee of the day n urine was dark. Nor did i wait until mid stream. Just grabbed the 1st 50ml.
    Thank you Lotus, this is definitely the most informative thread on urines ive seen.

  191. Lotus Says:

    You only need to drink the water the day of the test, though it’s never a bad idea to drink an extra half gallon of water probably. Good luck! Let us know how it goes. And thanks for the kind words.

  192. Passafist Says:

    I definately will update after the test, its the only way ppl will know what actually works for passing. There’s so many old wives tales about passing urine tests its ridiculous…….
    In past Ive tried, adding Visine, drops of bleach, drinks – Vales etc, Urine Luck (no i wasnt), and certo & water (none worked).
    I smoked an 1/8 a day for 10yrs and recently stopped smoking except every so often.

  193. Lotus Says:

    Awesome, yeah that was the reason I wrote this article. I was going through my own drug testing thing on probation/job searching, and there was very little good info to be had on the web. It was either shilling from drug test companies or “body cleanser” products, or just as you said old wives tales.

  194. Passafist Says:

    I do have one question, when i do take the test im 99.9% it is unsupervised. If i took a small Visine bottle and put regular H2O in it at body temp and put that in first just so the litmus on the panels absorbed it 1st do you think that would help before i added an = amount of pee?
    I just dont want to pay 200$ to be labeled a drug seeker lol.
    I hardly sleep from rhe pain as you can probly see from my post times as is. Just want this to be over :-(

  195. RaeRae Says:

    After reading this feed I have found a lot of helpful information, but noticed there aren’t too many females on here. So I suppose I will just ask you personally :) I am 5’5″ and weigh 143. I don’t have a lot of body fat and have a normal metabolism. The last time I smoked was the 31st of August and my probation UA test is today. Before then I only smoked a couple times a week, if that. What are my highest chances of passing seeing that my friend who was going to sub his pee for me won’t be off work in time. It’s 11:30 now and I will be taking the test around 4 or so. Thank you so much if you do get back to me in time!

  196. Lotus Says:

    Passafist- No the water trick won’t work because those tests often look for the presence of creatine. It might work to just mix a little in while you’re pissing though. Or if you want to go that route, just get some synthetic urine and put that in there like 50/50.

    RaeRae- Sorry if I didn’t get back to you in time. I’d say you have a pretty good chance of passing, especially if you drink a lot of water before your test. Good luck!

  197. me Says:

    So my boyfriend was recently hit by a drunk driver while at work, and although he didn’t immediately go to the doctor it turns out his back is broken because of the injury. We’ve been paying out of pocket to avoid the dreaded drug test but the treatment he needs is pricey.

    My question : is me peeing for him even possible / will he have the opportunity for a switcharoo? Also, if I am on birth control, will that affect the test at all, ie high estrogen levels? We’re so nervous because he needs his job but also treatment, and angry because it wasn’t even his fault.

  198. Passafist Says:

    Took my piss test today, i tried that water trick w/ adding tap to the cup first. Well Miami tap water will get you a positive result for PCP.
    LMFAO.
    They retested me twice and i just used my own piss. Well…….. I passed!
    #150 – 30mg percs will definitely kill some pain lol.
    Thanks lotus.

    The whole dont smoke weed to get a C II narcotic baffles me. I brought my old cali Sb 420 rec with me in case i failed i could attemp to show them i was “legit” even though FL does NOT have MMJ.

    me- You should be able to provide a sample, birth control and estrogen won’t be tested for. He should have the chance for a switcheroo so long as it’s not court/military related. Who is going to be drug testing him? If it’s the doctor or the insurance it will not have any effect on his employment.

    Passafist- Awesome to hear you passed, pretty funny about the tap water. Maybe you should invest in a filter… :p

    I did the test for my probation, unsupervised at labcorp. My friend, who is a guy subbed is pee for me. Will they suspect anything because I used a males urine? Or should I be okay? I got the test completed, correct temperature and all…I just didn’t want to take a chance of failing an wasn’t sure if mattered gender wise since its unsupervised probation drug test.

    Took my probation drug test at labcorp yesterday, did the ole switcheroo but with male piss, (I’m female…lol) will it matter? He is clean and I got the temp right and all…was unsupervised, taken at labcorp…will I get on trouble for using male piss? :/ I’m freakin out a bit haha

  202. Aurarock Says:

    Hello. I have a job interview tomorrow with a temp agency, and i am concerned about there being thc in my system.

    The frequency i smoke is 1 to 3 grams a week recently anyways. I believe that the last two weeks prior to me stopping i smoking was 2 grams each of the weeks. (Roughly). I stopped smoking on a Thursday i think, the fifth. so its been 12 days.

    The test is a 5-screen urine test administered on site. I have a very fast metabolism, ive lifted weights every other day this week and today i did enough cardio to make me want to die then sweated in the sauna for a good 20 min.

    Im drinking water like my life depends on it, and i just found cranberry extract vitamins! Popped one and i plan on peeing mid stream tomorrow and drinking a fat cup of coffee in the morning.

    How are my chances looking?

  203. Aurarock Says:

    I also drink a lot of water anyways. Just a lot more during the past 4 days since i got the surprise interview.

  204. Lotus Says:

    Rachel- You will be totally fine!! They do not test for gender at all, it would be crazy expensive :)

    Aurarock- Well it is hard to say. You are doing everything right, so that’s a big plus. You say 2 grams a week so I’m going to assume you’re smoking maybe one bowl a day or a couple every other day. That is pretty moderate use, it’s not very heavy but it’s not super light either. Two weeks is generally right on the cutoff unless your metabolism is slow. The fact that you’re working out a lot probably means you’re going to be burning off more of the fat-containing THC than the average sedentary person.

    I would have suggested you did the cardio yesterday and load up on the carbs today, but that’s just a personal theory that I have yet to see any studies on. I have heard it worked for others. So if I were you, tonight I would eat a nice, heavy meal, and take it real easy. Then tomorrow morning after your morning piss, I’d drink a bunch of water and eat a nice heavy breakfast (two or three breakfast tacos or a couple bacon and egg biscuits). Ideally this will help saturate the THC fat with enough “clean” fat to trick the test. Remember the test has a bit of margin for error, so as long as you’re below that line you’re good. Good luck and let me know if you have any questions! And of course please let us know how it works out!!

  205. Aurarock Says:

    Thanks for your feedback. It turns out i drank so much water that the test was inconclusive haha. Then i took a second and i tricked it! :) very happy thanks lotus

    You people fucking make me insane. Maybe if you started acting like goddamned adults and stopped taking fucking drugs, you wouldn’t have to cheat the fucking tests in the first place. You make it worse for all of the people who DON’T do drugs. So fuck all of you.

  208. Lotus Says:

    Interesting viewpoint aphra, can you elaborate on why you believe drug users make it worse for the non-users? Wouldn’t it be the corporate/government policy regarding drug tests that make it worse? I work for a smaller company and they do not drug test, they pay more and they treat their employees better than most national corporations. Some people that work there still use drugs and it does not affect the company or its employees in any way. Seems to me that you’re raging against the players when you really hate the game.

  209. Silly1smiley1 Says:

    I smoked 2to3 bowls of pot for years now. today is the 27 & i need to take a urinalysis for my drs appt by the 18th. That gives me 23 days I’m going to start doing lots of cardio & intake lots of water! I’m chunky! Do you think just exercising heavily & lemon Water do the trick? In the past Ives used sugar free jelatinev( Knox) & it’s worked but my dr prescribes me opiates & Xanax that I need to show up in my test! Do you think I can pass this way or can you give me a way that I may pass? && do the detox pills work that clense the system? would i start take those now or the day of or before my test??? im confused, into which method i should use! Thank you

  210. Silly1smiley1 Says:

    Actually 21 days!!!! Please help! Can thc be removed from the system naturally by extreme cardio & lots of water in 21 days?? Can you explain the dilution method & b12 & niacin does that need to be taken now or the day before or day of ? Thank you again!

  211. Broocifur Says:

    hey aphra 75, don’t you have anything better to do then read this if you’re so great? GTFO.

  212. Broocifur Says:

    Anyways, I guess I was a frequent smoker for quite a few months and just moved so I’ve been job hunting and don’t want to fail. I know somewhere that I’m pretty sure will hire me but my boyfriend also applied there and failed their test, I guess it’s for 15ng/ml and he was at 30. I thought most were for 50. You do take it at a lab but after the first one everyone says they don’t bother testing again. I haven’t smoked for about 28 days :( and I just drank three glasses of water and peed in a powerade bottle and put it in the freezer because I’d really like to smoke now. It does have yellow tint to it. Since I am female I’m really hoping I’ll be able to keep it warm enough when I thaw it out. Any recommendations for the container before I try it? I was initially thinking a condom but I’m reading a lot of small bottles. Also do you think that this pee will pass? After I do whatever I end up doing I’ll share the results.

  213. Lotus Says:

    Silly1smiley1- Yes it is certainly possible to pass a test with dilution in 21 days. You don’t need to buy any “kits” (though we could make lots of money advertising for them on our site). All you need is water, B12, and creatine. Let me explain exactly what’s going on first.

    You do not need to load up on water, b12 or creatine until the day of your test, though I do encourage you drink lots of water just as a healthy daily habit. But so long as you do some cardio-heavy exercises and sweat a lot you’ll be burning off the stored fat and saturated THC metabolites. 21 days is a perfect time frame for this. You can work out hard for 18 days, then take a few days off and be fairly sedentary. The last night is when you’ll want to start drinking more water. Don’t overdo it though – it’s dangerous to your health and risks failing the test for diluting. Just make sure you drink a gallon or so from 8-12 hours before the test, and take your assorted vitamins (b12 and such) 1-3 hours before.

    You’re only really trying to do 3 things – pass the temperature test, pass the visual inspection (not even really necessary), pass the creatine test (if applicable, some don’t have it), and pass the THC test. Naturally, creatine will add the presence of creatine to your urine. The B12 adds a more convincing yellow color, though it’s more like a radioactive neon-yellow than a standard urine color. And the water obviously dilutes the THC metabolites making your chance at passing higher. Beyond that you can’t really supplement it further.

    I hope this helps, let me know if you have any extra questions!

    Broocifur- There are many different tests, some of which have different cutoffs and tolerances than others. 15ng/ml is pretty common on the more modern or advanced tests, but they are much more expensive than their 50ng counterparts. It does sound like they sent the sample to a lab, because a normal “pass/fail” test would not include an exact measurement. Environmental factors can also significantly affect the results, so it is entirely possible your bf would have passed a different test – 30ng/ml is a tiny tiny amount.

    I would have suggested freezing the urine in a microwave-safe container, but I think the powerade bottle should suffice.
    I wouldn’t use a condom because it has a reasonable chance of breaking, and I can’t think of a worse outcome at a urinalysis than looking like you pissed your pants and then failing the test. I usually recommend 5-hour energy bottles as a container, a hand-warmer to keep it warm, and a thermometer to keep check of the temp.
    Personally, I’d go ahead and smoke but I’m the gambling type. At 28 days you’re most likely clean enough to pass any test, but failing wouldn’t be unheard of I guess.

    Good luck and thanks for reading!

  214. Broocifur Says:

    is regular under the tongue for fevers thermometer ok? or is it supposed to me something fancy?

  215. Silly1smiley1 Says:

    Thank you for responding lotus! I have one more question. My Dr. Wants me to do a kidney ultrasound because my numbers are not correct. I’m thinking that in a kidney ultrasound they will be able to notice if I smoke marijuana. Do you think that a kidney ultrasound will be able to tell if I am a smoker or not? I would go after the 21 days of being sober but I’m just wondering if the dr is gonna walk out & tell me I found thc in your kidneys? I know an ultra sound of my kidneys are off track of a urinalysis but just wondering what your thought is on this! Thanks again

  216. Broocifur Says:

    So I did a test by thawing some out under hot water and put it in a five hour energy bottle inside of me and within an hour it was body temperature. Are you sure that frozen pee will work? That it is still good after being frozen and thawed out? I still don’t know if mine is clean and if I was to use someone else pee it’d either be my pregnant sister who I don’t know if they check prescriptions for prenatals type deal and if I use her fiances I would need to know that they won’t check gender or that he sometimes has a beer and I’m only 20 if that matters or shows. This is only for pre employment but I just moved to a new town and really need income.

  217. Lotus Says:

    Silly1smiley1- No the ultrasound will have no impact at all on drug test results. You will be fine.

    Broocifur- I am positive you can use frozen and thawed pee. It is good for about a year frozen, and about a day at body temp. Also, you can definitely use your sister’s fiance’s pee. They will not check for gender. You could use your sisters urine as well but there’s no telling what type of medications she’s on and they could possibly false positive for drugs.

  218. Scared x smoker Says:

    Hey there was heavy smoker quit 2 months ago going for cdl had to take dot drug screen kept failing home tests bought dr greens agent x please do ya think ill pass w that freaking out big time ugh

  219. Lotus Says:

    Are you sure you’re reading the home test correctly? Any line on the test no matter how faint means you passed. Agent X won’t do anything really. It will give you some vitamins and stuff but nothing you couldn’t have gotten on your own cheaper, and then it probably tells you to drink like 4 glasses of water. You would do better saving the money and just drinking a bunch of water and taking some supplements to add substance to your urine.

    At 2 months it would be insane to fail the test, I mean you’re close to being able to pass a hair test at that point. Just be calm, those home tests are not accurate and you should be fine.

  220. Alexis Says:

    I’ve been on probation for almost a year now.. I smoked my first time last Saturday 09-28-13.. I only took two small hits. I’ve been drinking water and cranberry juice. My probation officer will be testing me Next Friday. 10-11-13.. So it’ll have been about 12 days .. What are the odds I will pass? My friend is getting me a detox pill. What else do you recommend ? I’m suppose to get off this month. Help!!! Thank you

  221. Ryan28 Says:

    This is definitely the best place for info on this subject. Thanks to all! Especially you Lotus…I have a lil issue of my own…I have smoked about .5-1 gram everyday for about 8 years. I have a random coming up in 23 days. I have quit and I am drinking a gallon of water a day and taking cranberry pills. The test is a 10 panel urinalisys. Do you think I could pass? Or does synthetic show up on a 10 panel test? Thanks again soooo much!!

  222. Lotus Says:

    Alexis- You have about a 50/50 chance of passing in my experience. Read the section on dilution or my response to Silly1smiley1 higher up on this page for more info. I wouldn’t bother with the detox pill as they’re a ripoff. Just drink a lot of water the day of the test and take B12 and creatine about an hour before.

    Ryan28- You’re welcome! Thanks for the kind words. First off it’s great to be drinking a gallon of water a day, but it’s not going to affect the outcome of the test this early. It only really matters the day of the test. But don’t stop – drinking water is a good habit to get into :D I think you should be able to pass for sure at 23 days. Synthetic does not show up on a 10 panel but it could false positive for something so I would avoid it. For the record I did smoke synthetic the past and it did not trip any drug tests, but this was a few years ago and tests have changed slightly since then.

    Let me know if you have any more questions!

  223. Ryan28 Says:

    Thank you so much for the quick reply!!! You are a life saver but I failed to to put “pee” after synthetic. Will synthetic pee show up on a 10 panel? Thanks again!!

  224. Lotus Says:

    No it shouldn’t as long as it’s it’s a modern product.

  225. Ibbalibb Says:

    Just drink a lot of water on the day your test is. For me it has worked 5 out of 5 times!

  226. Ibbalibb Says:

    it does not matter if you blaze the same day. You will see negative outcome, just if you drink a lot of water the same day as the test is.

  227. Ryan28 Says:

    Just wanted to say thanks again to all. I bought a couple MJ tests from CVS and I took one yesterday and failed…not even a smidgen of a line showed up. I still have about a week 1/2 (I quit on 9-23 and my test is on the 16 or 17th.) I work a lot so I don’t have a lot of time to work out:/ But I think I should still be fine. I’m going to test it again this Saturday and if I fail, synthetic pee it is.

  228. Lotus Says:

    Ryan28- No big surprise that you’re not passing at this point. By the time your test is you’ll have a much better chance. When you think about it you’re only 14 days in, and another week and a half will nearly double your clean time. I’d say you have a good plan though, if you don’t pass on Saturday definitely play on the safe side and use synthetic.

  229. Broocifur Says:

    So my test has to be done before 11am so I think I’ll go in the morning tomorrow. It was over a week I think before they called my boyfriend about his positive test results :( . When do you usually know the results? (I’m pretty sure it’s a lab because I’ve been given a list of collection sites.) Would it be a bad idea to ask them at the place I take it? I don’t know if I’m just paranoid. I’d like to know as soon as possible if my plan worked.

  230. Lotus Says:

    Hard to say. Sometimes they don’t tell you at all and you just find out when they say “come in to work tomorrow.” Usually the lab will process it 3-7 days, so I would expect to know within a week.

  231. kushberry Says:

    hello lotus, ok here we go I got into some trouble, a yr ago and have been clean since, except this week after my probation meeting I smoked about 5 times a total of guessing 2/3 grams, I have 25 days before I go back. I dont have a lot of time on my hands to excersise due to my crazy work schedule, and I will be drinking extra water and b12 about a week before, are my chances good?, usually just a swab but being cautious, and yeah im gonna wait till its over to toke, lol

  232. Lotus Says:

    kushberry- Ya you should be perfectly fine I think. Don’t worry about the water and B12 until the day before and the day of your test.

  233. wondering Says:

    what are the chances of passing a UA at doctors Ofc in 5 dys ? Smoked 3 times out of a bowel Only 2-3 hits each time Thanks

  234. California BEAR Says:

    I smoked about two hits of weed prior to that I had been clean for about two months my question is will I be clean when I yesterday 8 days later… I drank a lot of water and cranberry juice and its a test for probation if that helps

  235. Lotus Says:

    wondering- Chances of passing in 5 days is very low unless you barely ever smoke (like smoking one day every 3 months or so).

    California BEAR- I don’t think I understand you correctly, let me clarify. So you took a drug test yesterday, but 8 days before that you smoked two hits after being clean for two months? You have a pretty decent chance of passing especially since you drank lots of water. I couldn’t say 100% either way, but there’s a good chance you’ve passed.

  236. California BEAR Says:

    Well it was about a week ago but yes I took the test exactly eight days after I smoked I drank a lot of water right before the test I’m just hoping I didn’t dilute the test and it was sent for further testing in the lab or was just inconclusive

  237. California BEAR Says:

    I’ve also heard that u can be clean after 3-4 days after only smoking once is this true?

  238. Rosa Says:

    Can it detect if i use colored water ?

  239. wildsmitty Says:

    will I pass a mouth swab test 96 hours clean lotus

  240. Lotus Says:

    California BEAR- Did they tell you anything about it? Normally probation tests are immediate, meaning they’ll let you know if there’s a problem and they’ll send it off for confirmation that day. You should know by now if you failed, so you probably passed. You can pass after 3-4 days in theory, but doing so would take some serious luck and not much smoking. For example, if you never smoke and you take a one-hitter-quitter, then 4 days later take a drug test you’d have a good chance of passing. Other than that it would take some skill and some luck to get a heavy smoker passing in 4 days. The drug tests aren’t perfect though, so even dirty pee definitely shows up clean sometimes or vice versa.

    Rosa- It depends. If it’s the cheap panel tests with no lab confirmation then yes, as long as you get the water to the right temp (98-99˚). Many pre-employment tests and all the home test kits are going to be the cheap ones so water would work. The more expensive tests can check for the presence of creatine or urea nitrogen which will give you away if you’re just using water.

    wildsmitty- Yes sir I would expect you to :)

  241. wildsmitty Says:

    thanks lotus and one more question for u how many hours does it take for thc to pass a mouth swab test ?

  242. Lotus Says:

    14-48 usually. 24 hours for most people will be plenty of time.

  243. California BEAR Says:

    Well when I do test I piss in the bottle then drop it in a bucket and I leave they test it later
    I’m guessing ill find out the results when I go see my p.o in a few days I’m no longer a heavy smoker I didn’t smoke for about two and a half months before I did and even then it was only two very small hits I know for a fact I was clean bbeforei smoked because I tested clean for those two and a half months any more info u can give me would be greatly appreciated

  244. kmars Says:

    Lotus, I am not really a smoker as I have smoked maybe a total of 5 times this past year. however, I just had a pre-employment drug test today that I am a little nervous about. I took several hits from poor quality of weed on the 12th and 19th of Sept.-Then, on the 28th, I took maybe 3 hits of medical, which I’m sure the TCH levels were substantially higher. I am 6’1″ 225 and not very active due to grad school- but in your opinion do you think I had a good chance of passing, today?

  245. Lotus Says:

    kmars- Yeah I’d say you have a pretty good chance of passing. Did you take any basic measures like drinking water, making sure you piss in the morning before you test, etc? You’re at nearly 3 weeks clean, and you were a light smoker beforehand, so your chances are very high. It would take a stroke of bad luck to fail, so barring a flawed test or a false positive for something else you should be fine.

    C BEAR- I think you might be ok. Usually the PO will call you in right away if they find out you failed (though not always). I can’t really think of any more info than that, but I wish you the best of luck! Please let us know what happens.

  246. kmars Says:

    I pissed multiple times before as the screening was in the afternoon and drink plenty of water as I am in AZ and it’s still hot AF so I practically sweat all day haha. Hopefully, I pass and either way I thank you for you’re time and info. I’ll definitely refer anyone in the same position to your site. Cheers!

  247. Ryan28 Says:

    Turns out our randoms were pushed out to next week…not sure what day it’s going to be but I took another CVS home test on Monday morning and it showed a VERY faint line so I think I’ll be ok. Thanks again Lotus…you are awesome.

  248. Silly1smiley1 Says:

    Lotus, I’ve smoked now for 3 years only a bowl or a joint every night to sleep. I quit smoking on Sept. 27, then I smoked a bowl on Oct 5. I haven’t been able to wk out but I have increased my water intake. I’m a chunky female, very low metabolism ! I still abstained from smoking. I then I smoked two bowls on Oct 13. My doctor called & said I have to go in on Oct 22. So I won’t smoke at all, that gives me 8 days of not smoking! I have to have my anxiety & pain meds in my system, w/o pot! So my Question would be if I wk out vigorously for the next 3 days , drink lots of water w/ lemon & green tea am I able to pass this test? So, in all in the last 25 days I’ve only smoked 3 bowls, of regular weed not dro, the last time by the time I take the test would be 9 days ago, can I pass the test still having my prescriptions in my system? What can I do to wash out more thc in the next 4 day before I go to the Drs? On the day of reguardless, I have to take the meds b4 the test making sure that’s in my system! I just need to get the thc out? In sorry for repeating my self just making sure I explained enough to understand! Thanks lotus

  249. Silly1smiley1 Says:

    One more thing does in taking lemon juice & green tea help at all remove thc? Should I buy an expensive detox drink this weekend! I just can’t sleep thinking so much on how to rid of as much ad I can! Even though I’ve only smoked 3 bowls in 25 days my last two bowls would make it 8 days completely clean! I’m a nervous wreck! I love the herb but need my pain meds! :(

  250. Lotus Says:

    Ryan28- That’s awesome, good luck and thank YOU!

    Silly1smiley1- You’ve got the right idea – the best way to “wash out more THC” as you put it is to do some cardio work outs and burn off the fat containing THC. But with such a short time frame this is going to provide limited results. Working out increases your metabolism and allows you to expel more of the fat, so the more important factor is to slow down your metabolism again before the test. So for a couple days before just stop working out and be a fatass for awhile, and that will help to both slow the release of the THC-saturated fats and dilute the fat.

    Drinking lemon juice and tea won’t do anything to remove THC (maybe some extremely minor increase in metabolism), but the caffeine in tea is a diuretic (meaning it makes you pee) so it could be useful before the test. I do a similar thing by drinking coffee or an energy drink before my drug tests.

    I don’t know if you’ll pass or not, it could easily go either way. I feel like if you failed the test they would give you a second chance, or maybe not care? I mean if you have a prescription for anxiety and pain then that’s pretty much exactly what cannabis can be used medicinally for with great results.

  251. Silly1smiley1 Says:

    Thanks, Lotus I will let you know! My results I’ve been seeing this Dr. For eight years for pain & Anxiety! Some days I’d just rather some the good ol’ herb instead of being on meds! All of a sudden, 6 months ago my Dr. Made me sign a contract w/ him. Like no selling, no jumping clinics, ect. He hasn’t tested me yet but, it could happen!

    Anonymous- What up! I hate to be the bearer of bad news but your odds are pretty low. I’m about the same level of smoker (6’2 180) and my piss usually stays dirty for a few weeks. My best suggestion is to try to substitute some clean or synthetic urine if at all possible. If it’s not then try out your fancy drink and say your prayers! Seriously though, the drink will probably add some nutrients and stuff to your urine and will help to dilute your piss. Drink a bunch of water with it (but don’t kill yourself going overboard) and you just might get lucky. Good luck, I’m pullin’ for ya!

    ok so i have a drug test for a job. i was thinking have my gf ride with me n pee in a cup then ill put it in a lil squirt bottle n should i tape it to my leg?? or close pin it in a sock?? will the pee be ok as in 98° within 30 min or so of her peeing for me?? whats the likely hood of someone watching?? any ways around that?? thanks !!!…

  270. Lotus Says:

    smokeee- You’ll probably need to come up with a better way of keeping it warm. A handwarmer with a thermometer to keep tabs on temperature should work. You can also use body heat to keep it warm, but that will require a very thin container and storing it in a very hot area like your groin or your armpit. It should be good for a few hours before it goes bad if kept at 98˚.

    The likelihood of someone watching on an employment is very very low. Pretty much only in the military will this happen. But one way around that is to use a condom and stealthily puncture the condom and spray it into the cup as if you were actually pissing.

  271. Just me Says:

    I just took the swab test…it’s was labcorp test and they send it to the lab…
    I have not smoked for 9 days. Do you think I have to worry about passing????
    I want to smoke a bowl but I’m afraid to…..

  272. abc1234 Says:

    i dodged the test for a good 10 days. as i said last to last weekend i smoked up, before which i was smoking regularly for a long time until a month back where I cut down only to weekends, havent smoked since then. had a few redbulls over the 10 days alongwith cranberry juice, and as much fluids as possible. what are the odds now

  273. Lotus Says:

    Just me- You shouldn’t have anything to worry about. I’d smoke up :)

    abc1234- You got much better odds now. You could still fail of course, but you should pass as long as you make sure to drink lots of water and that sort of thing. Good luck!

  274. Nitro Says:

    I used quick fix plus for employment urine test, the MRO called me and said I tested for THC .. Knowing this wasn’t possible I am having it sent to another lab for testing. What are my chances for them finding out it was synthetic

  275. Lotus Says:

    Nitro- Pretty high honestly. If they do any sort of involved test they should find out quickly it is fake. Let me know what happens.

  276. Nitro Says:

    I’ll let u know… I thought they might just test it for the thc

  277. Lotus Says:

    You would be right if it was the standard panel/cup test that they check on the spot. Those just check temperature and in rare circumstances they’ll check for Creatine. But since this is a lab test they usually do a more exhaustive evaluation. That said it is possible you could sneak by with a little luck.

  278. kattie1142 Says:

    I started smoking crack again last Friday and first sober days tomorrow since I smoke three hours ago today so if I smoked today and my court test is on the 14th at about eleven am and its a cup response test will I pass I’ve been taking niacin and azeos and water and the amount of crack well let’s just say in a week I’ve done about 700 $ with my bf

  279. kattie1142 Says:

    Its nice to be able to discuss issues with what drug u take without having the negative comments thanks for this site :)

  280. Lotus Says:

    You’re welcome! This is a judgement-free zone :) I think people are smart enough to understand the risks of what they’re doing without harping on them like an old biddy.

    Anyway, you should be fine as long as you don’t smoke for the next week. Coke stays in your system about a week max so you should pass easily with the water and vitamins you’ve been taking. Good luck! Let us know how it goes

  281. kattie1142 Says:

    I will :)

  282. just Says:

    I took a pee test i used a cover my urine was sent to a lab i know i had a 5 hour window does it just mask my urine or does it hold everything in my system i tested myself before i went and passed but I’m worried because it was sent off

  283. Lotus Says:

    If you tested yourself before and passed then you’re probably fine. Not sure cause I don’t know anything about when you’ve last smoked, what you’ve used to pass and that type of thing.

  284. Shauna Says:

    Hello… So in the last oh 3-4 weeks I have smoked 5 hits several days apart.. last hit being 10 days ago and really just a hit.. not a full bowl or anything just a hit.. what are my chances passing a test today with dilution??

  285. Lotus Says:

    They’re pretty good I’d say. Dilution will work wonders, and you’re right on the bubble there as far as passing naturally. You could still fail of course, but I’d say more likely than not you’d pass.

  286. Clueless Says:

    I used my child’s clean pee this morning for what I assume is an EtG alcohol test. I didn’t know anything about refrigerating etc until I read your posts after the fact. I kept his urine sealed at room temp for 9 hours until test with PO. He took it sealed it etc. what will lab possibly come back with?? Thanks

  287. Lotus Says:

    Clueless- I bet you’ll pass, it can keep for about 12-24 hours in room temp conditions. It just depends on the environment with regards to temperature, humidity, bacteria, etc. Obviously the ideal would be refrigerated in a sterile environment, but nothing’s ideal :) You said it was at room temp for 9 hours, so it should be fine.

  288. Need Help Says:

    Will fake urine (quick fix plus) pass a 14 panel test? Heavy smoker for 10 years, not sure I have any other options. The test is done in my office, any recommendations?

  289. Lotus Says:

    Need Help- I would go for it. It should pass the test, though if it gets sent off you’re probably screwed. Have something to keep it warm – hand warmer around a little 5 hour energy bottle works. Have a thermometer and just make sure it’s at the right temp… and good luck!

  290. Need Help Says:

    Thanks for the quick response! I have the warmer and the bottle with the thermometer. I know they do the test in house and I think if it passes the panel I am fine (not sent to a lab). Can you elaborate on being screwed if it goes to the lab? Any suggestions on where to hide the bottle?

  291. Lotus Says:

    Need Help- No problem. What I meant by being screwed is if it goes to the lab they have ways to tell if it’s synthetic and it usually won’t get past them. But they normally only send it off to verify a failed result. If you pass the initial screening they won’t send it to a lab – it’s too expensive to do for every test.

    I’d either tape it to my leg or something similar. If you have a handwarmer then you won’t have to worry about keeping it warm, just hidden. They might ask you to empty your pockets, so try to avoid keeping it there.

  292. SOMAbody help me! Says:

    I was taking Carisopodol (Soma) for a neck surgery. I admitted having a prescription for a job offer and am getting lab tested (urine) specifically for Soma. I have not taken one in approx 10-12 days. Should the Soma be out of my system yet & my test results come back negative?

  293. Lotus Says:

    SOMAbody help me!- First off, I love that name :D Anywho, 10-12 days should be more than enough to pass a test for carisoprodol. It’s out of your system normally within 5-7 days so you should be perfectly fine.

  294. SOMAbody help me! Says:

    Thanks Lotus. I thought the name worked in this situation..lol! I should be clean for the Meprobamate metabolite as well? By the way, this is the best site for answers, that I’ve found! Keep up the good work…Love from the OC, Cali.

  295. Lotus Says:

    SOMA- Thanks! It’s always great to hear those compliments. Yep meprobamate is detectable for 4 days max, so you will be clean for that as well. Much love from the California of Texas – Austin :D

  296. Ryan28 Says:

    Hello again Lotus:) it has been 63 days since I’ve smoked the sweet ganja and I still haven’t been tested yet!! I’m sure I’ll be fine now haha:/ my question is: I’d like to smoke again after I’m tested…we will have randoms every 3 months or so after the initial test. What’s the best way to get back to smokin without fear of getting popped? Like maybe a little bit once a week? Any info you can share would be great!! Thanks again!! Love this place;)

  297. Lotus Says:

    Ryan28- Hey Ryan! Good to hear from you again. My advice for you is this: since you’re super clean by now after two months of not smoking, get a few nice, small, microwavable air-tight containers, piss into them and immediately stick them in the freezer. Urine will last for a year (probably more) frozen, and then whenever you have a test you can simply thaw one out, warm it up to body temp, take it to the facility with you and dump it in the testing cup. When you eventually do your initial test you should be able to figure out the best way to do that. Most places just have you go into a bathroom with the testing cup and do your business. But in rare circumstances they will actually watch you and/or make you empty your pockets.

    If you can’t freeze them for whatever reason (living with parents, roommates, so on), then you can always just substitute with synthetic piss and smoke to your heart’s content. However if you are dead-set on pissing clean by yourself, smoking a little bit once a week should allow you to pass in a pretty short timeframe. Personally, I would do the freezer method just for peace of mind. If you smoke once a week and then take a couple weeks off before the test, you’ll have a great chance of passing. But there’s always that small probability that you could fail.

  298. Ryan28 Says:

    I totally forgot about the ol’ freezer trick=)) I’ll probably end up doing that…the tests are at my actual work. The “tester” brings all his/her supplies and will just have us go into the bathroom alone. The only thing that scares me is the whole “getting it up to temp” thing…but I sure do miss smokin before bed…I’ve had the craziest dreams lately. I miss not dreaming and sleeping through the whole night. Just have to tell the wife not to use certain tupperwares in the freezer:P.

  299. Lotus Says:

    Getting it up to temp is the only tricky part, but it’s not as difficult as you might think. It sounds like your test is gonna be really easy to cheat, so it’s pretty much an ideal situation for substitution. Once you thaw out the urine, store it in a small, thin container – something like a 5 Hour Energy bottle works well. Then wrap it in a hand warmer and heat it up. This can get it too hot, so keep a thermometer with you to make sure it doesn’t go above 99˚ or below 96˚. Once you get it up to 98.6˚ you can always just stick it in a warm body part (armpit or crotch), and that should keep it at body temp. Just be sure to check it one last time before the test and you should be golden!

    You can also practice/experiment with water to make sure you have your process down beforehand.

  300. Buddy Says:

    Hey lotus, we test at lab corps and u believe it’s a 10 pan? Do you think a bottle of agent will work? Thanks!!

  301. SOMAbody help me! Says:

    Update…I passed! Thanks for relieving some of my stress.

  302. Lotus Says:

    If you mean the synthetic urine, yes it should. I’ve heard QuickFix is a good one. If you mean the cleansing stuff, no that won’t work. Better off just drinking a lot of water and taking some B12/creatine.

  303. Anonymous Says:

    I have a dot physical this Thurs. I have fresh urine collected Friday and quickly stored in freezer in rubber made container. I have substituted urine before but not frozen it was always from the night before. Will this still work?

  304. Lotus Says:

    SOMA- Thanks for the update and congrats on passing :)

    Anonymous- Yes, absolutely! Just thaw it out beforehand, and make sure it’s between 96˚ & 99˚F when you are doing the test. It will work just as well as fresh urine.

  305. scott Says:

    I smoked about a 1/4 oz of weed in a 2 week period I’ve been clean for about 11 days. I have to be tested sometime this week what can I do to pass this text?

  306. Lotus Says:

    scott- You can dilute your urine, or you can substitute with synthetic or clean pee.

  307. scott Says:

    Thanks ……I have someone that’s clean that’s going to pee for me. ….thank you for the advice. Once I’m clean I’m going to try the freezing method I love to smoke myself helps me sleep.

  308. Lotus Says:

    In my opinion, that’s the best way to go. No chance of failing as long as you can sneak it in at the right temp :) I’m the same way about sleeping. If I can’t smoke I have terrible insomnia that fucks with my sleep schedule and I end up with 3 or 4 hours of sleep. Smoking before bed is so helpful, even if I don’t smoke during the day I make sure to toke up before bedtime.

    I need help!!! Our random are coming any day. I.did 2 small. Bumps 2 days ago after months of sstaying off Meth. Is there any way of. Fooling. This test??

  311. Lotus Says:

    Andrew- Thanks!! :D

    b.g.- Meth (and other amphetamines) stays in your system for 1-5 days. If it was your first time in months you’d have a pretty good chance of passing within a couple days. Best way to fool it would be to dilute or to substitute. If you dilute the day of your test you should have a very solid chance of passing. Let me know if you have any more questions.

  312. DietQ Says:

    Question regarding diet on the last 3 days prior to a test:
    I’m barely passing home tests with a faint line, ~2 weeks clean. Over the past week I ate clean, lots of lean protein and greens, and worked out a bunch. Also started creatine mono.
    Now switching to “last few days” mode.
    My understanding is I should keep up the creatine and maybe add in some red meat. But should I eat fatty foods? Should I eat lots of carbs?
    Any other guidance for the last few days other than ceasing exercise and continuing creatine? I also plan on ~48-60oz of fluid within the 4 hours prior to test.

    PS Lotus – thanks for keeping this thread active with your responses!

  313. Lotus Says:

    DietQ- My pleasure! Glad to be of service. You are on the right path, just keep doin’ what you’re doin’ and you’ll be fine. Loading up on carbs and fat for 3 days is probably not entirely necessary, it’s mostly important for the very last day before the test. But it certainly couldn’t hurt so I wouldn’t really recommend changing that plan. In addition to the creatine I would probably take a little B12, to give your urine a little yellow hue.

    Also a faint line is just as good as a solid line, and even clean people will sometimes only get a faint one (it’s not a perfect science). So if you’re consistently getting that faint line then that’s good news for you.

  314. DietQ Says:

    Update: not passing as consistently as I thought :( Did a nighttime test w/o dilution (normal intake) and there is a ghost line if any at all. Second failed nighttime test in a row after a few passes. Definitely more faint than before. What the heck?! The only change is less exercise and a crappier more meat and fat-filled diet. Is there anything I can be doing? I’m going to down a bunch of cranberry juice tonight and test in the morning.
    Regarding B12, I take a multivitamin already and I could double up on the day of the test, I’ve tested and found this does make my urine a bit neon-ish tho.
    Thanks in advance!

  315. Lotus Says:

    Don’t forget those tests are really unreliable – they could be right one day and wrong the next (which is part of the reason I hate drug tests in general). Since you didn’t dilute it probably just means all the THC hasn’t left your system yet. That’s pretty much to be expected after 2 weeks, it just means you should be sure to dilute come test day. If you’re worried you might not pass even with dilution, look into getting a synthetic urine like Quick Fix and substitute that in (just be sure you get it at the right temp).

    Personally I think if you drink a lot of water you will have a good chance of passing. No guarantees of course, but you should have a good shot!

  316. drew Says:

    Hey lotus your super informative. I’ve been a heavy high grade smoker for years. Trying for the FDNY and foresee a piss test in February . I’m athletic build with very minimal body fat as I workout on a daily basis and have recently stepped up my cardio regimen like crazy. I’ve just stopped blazing recently and am nervous about passing the test. I eat very healthy and drink plenty of cranberry juice, water and cold green tea (teas tea in particular). I also take multivitamins every other day and started low dieses of niacin. What are my chances of passing the test if administered mid Feb? Gonna miss green but need this job

  317. Lotus Says:

    drew- Thanks! Your chances for passing in Feb if you are stopping now? 100%. You’re in shape, have low fat already (so not much THC will be stored in your body), and you have well over a month maybe even 2 months of clean time ahead of you. In fact you should be able to smoke until the New Year and still pass with confidence in mid-Feb. But it never hurts to be on the safe side.

  318. Hi Says:

    I have a dot-nida test coming up for preemployment. I have been abstaining from pot for 17 days. I’m 6’1 and 200 lbs. I smoked about 2 small bowls a day of basically schwag almost everyday for about 1.5 years before. Exercised pretty hard for a few days and now I’ve stopped bc not sure when it will be. I think I’ll be at least 21 days clean when it happens. Been drinking lots of water, cranberry, green tea and coffee and now eating pretty fatty foods the last few days. Any help is appreciated. Thanks! Had some 4-5 day breaks in that year and a half.

  319. Hi Says:

    Sorry-it was always pretty low grade stuff. I’ve passed a couple at home tests after loading up on water etc. thanks!

  320. Lotus Says:

    Hi- Hey we have to approve comments because we get a lot of spam, that’s why your comments weren’t going through. Anyway, it sounds like you’re doing everything right. I’d say you have a great chance of passing as long as you load up on water, B12 and creatine on the morning of your testing day.

  321. Crystal Says:

    Hi! I’ve been googling for awhile now and this is the best help I’ve seen! Here’s my issue, I’m on probation for a dui and I was a regular smoker until early July , I just quit cold turkey so I could get clean before court. Then my date got extended so I smoked from Halloween till thanksgiving with a few day breaks in between . My court date was 12-11 and on the tenth I tested myself and I was clean. Well on Christmas Eve I was completely stupid and decided to smoke a one hitter and continued for about 1.5 weeks with maybe a 3 days where I didn’t smoke at all randomly in between. I wouldn’t smoke all day and it would only be a bowl pack or 1.5 a day shared with at least one other person. (At the time i thought id be fine untill i started googling) on the 27th I’ll be exactly 21 days clean. I’m a 23 year old 5’1 girl and weigh 110 at the very most. I would say my metabolism is normal, maybe a little above. I work all the time so I don’t have time to workout although I bar tend, serve, and cook so I guess that counts as something lol. What do you think my chances are of being clean by then? ? Thank you!

  322. Lotus Says:

    Crystal- Appreciate it! At 21 days you will have a very good chance of passing since you’re small and probably don’t have a lot of THC metabolites stored in your fat cells. I would recommend drinking a lot of water to dilute the urine and taking some creatine/B12. If you are still worried then you can sneak synthetic urine (like QuickFix) into the test instead. If you have any more questions let us know!

  323. ian Says:

    I’m on probation right now I have smoked once or twice and done some painkillers
    Such as oxycodone I just tried ky best to time it out between test so the day of the test
    I was clean my last test he didn’t tell ne wether it was clean or not n sent it to the lab when I came in a few days ago he told me I had to go to another office next week for a DNA test I’ve heard many things about how this DNA test is not for drugs but for a criminal data base but am still nervous if its hair I figure I’m fucked but if its blood or saliva is it possible since I’ve taken qcarbo32 and stay off anything for a week drink green tea and work out ill be good ? Ur help is appreciated

  324. Lotus Says:

    ian- As far as your DNA test is concerned, it is most likely NOT a drug test. Reason being, in the court system they have to specifically tell you the purpose and method of each test for legal reasons. If they told you it was a drug test but took your DNA, it would be a HUGE violation of privacy and thus a HIPPA (national health code) violation. It’s not to say it’s never happened, but if it did happen you could sue. Similarly, if they told you it was a DNA test and it ended up being a drug test, your lawyer could possibly get the results of the test thrown out.

    I’ve learned recently that hair tests can be mitigated up to 95% with hair relaxers. This is in contradiction to the previous notion that hair tests are impossible to trick. So if you are afraid of that you can try that out. Blood and saliva you’ll be perfectly fine since everything you took will be out of your system within 3 or 4 days (in blood oxy takes like 3 days weed maybe 5 days, and in saliva they’re both out about 36 hours).

    By the way, the fact that they are taking a DNA sample on probation is infuriating to me. Fuckin’ bullshit.

  329. Stoner22 Says:

    I had an interview on 1/13/14 and I really want this position for a dealership I smoke a lot! After I found out he picked me for “TRAINING” but not exactly hired he explained that they of course do drug tests. I’m not sure which type they do as I almost always had to take no drug test at all for a job. Only time I took a drug test was probation and one job and that was a saliva test which is easy to pass. What I’m nervous about is a piss test this dealership doesn’t exactly look like they’ll sound much money on lab test. But none of my friends are clean and I mean NONE. Sad to say only my sister the only one I know is clean. anyway, the training starts 1/15/14 and they do a background check on 1/20/14 so I’m guessing the urine test maybe on 1/20/14 as well. My question is do you have any suggestions? Right now my only thought is using a condom or something else light and not noisy to stick up me. I feel is the easiest way to keep urine at body temp.

  330. Lotus Says:

    Anonymous- Yes you’ll be absolutely fine. 24 hours is the normal limit for swab tests, and 3 days is the absolute maximum. Don’t bother with the mouthwash/listerine, I’d be worried the alcohol might trip the test.

    freakin- The short answer is that you probably won’t be tested for it. The long answer is that yes they CAN theoretically test for it but normally don’t (because it’s so rare). One thing though, do you mean the “legal high” type of stuff with synthetic cannabinoids on them? If you’re talking about “Spice” or other types of fake weed then those normally have synthetic cannabinoids. More places are in fact testing for synth. cannabinoids (like JWH-* or AM-* or CP-*), but there are so many of them that they can’t really cover all their bases. The most popular ones like JWH-018 are the most likely to be tested.

    If you’re just talking about smoking things like sage or damiana then you will have no problems at all.

    angie- I may have seen this a little late but honestly you’re doing pretty much everything you can. As long as you’re planning on drinking a lot of water before the test you are giving yourself the best possible chance. Try to take some creatine/B12 before the test too. Oh and make sure you take the test AFTER your first piss of the day, and also take the sample mid-stream. With a little luck you have a decent chance of passing (but with a little bad luck you probably won’t pass).

    Stoner22- Can you convince your sister to pee in a cup for ya? :p If not, you can just buy synthetic pee like QuickFix. It will pass no problem. You can do the condom inside you method, but I would be worried about having it break in there. That would really suck for a number of reasons… So if you want you can get a little 5 Hour Energy type bottle, use a hand warmer to get it heated up, and a little thermometer to check the temp and make sure it doesn’t over-heat. Then when you’re almost ready for the test you can hold the bottle under your armpit (or anywhere else that’s warm), and keep it at body temp that way.

    Let me know if y’all have any other questions!

    I know that “Quick Fix” from spectrum labs will work for a UA. I have used it on multiple occasions with no problems. My ex-wife, who in in a hospital mgmt. position has also used it quite effectively. She even keeps a bottle hidden in her office, just in case.
    It also comes with a warming pad in the box.
    Just remember to get the “Quick Fix Plus”, there is more in the bottle to cover those labs yhat ask for a larger sample.

  333. Lotus Says:

    Yeah I’ve heard only good things about Quick Fix+ as well. Also I think the plus version has uric acid to help in states that test for presence of it. Thanks for the review.

  334. deepblade Says:

    Great info here! Here’s another question on detecting THC metabolites – and I understand clearance time is variable from person to person, but I’d like your opinion for peace of mind I suppose.

    I will have a screen exactly 16 days from my last toke. There are limited stakes here as my PDoc requires me to fulfill my ADHD meds contract before rewriting a script that I am after. If I fail I can just retest at a later date. I actually declined to test 3 years ago and stopped getting meds, but I’d like to get back on them, hence my situation.

    I’m 5’10″ 170lb athletic male with low body fat. I weight train 4 days a week and run outside 20-30 miles per week, which has been my routine for the past two years. I have been a regular smoker for probably 10 years, which typically involves 1-2 hits a day of medium quality stuff 5 days a week. As I said my last hit would have been 16 days before the screen. Actually, two weeks prior to that I ran out of green and maybe smoked 2 hits 2 times a week until the last time that is 16 days before the test.

    What odds do you give me on passing? How much of advantage do those that exercise regerously have? I still plan on diluting to some degree with B complex and creatine – is this necessary or recommend? Thanks for helping so many get peace of mind with these situations.

  335. Lotus Says:

    deepblade- You have pretty good odds. Of all the people who have told me they were clean for 2 weeks before a test, only a couple have actually failed. People who exercise and have low body fat have a pretty significant advantage, depending on just how low their body fat is and so on. It’s simple physics – the less fat you have, the less THC metabolites are stored and the faster they’ll cycle out of the system.

    I would indeed recommend diluting because even with a low body fat % you’re still only 2 weeks out which can be iffy. Now the fact is you’re a light smoker and are probably gonna be clean at 2 weeks. But just to be safe (and since it can’t hurt anything) I would still dilute and take the supplements. Also, I would recommend not working out at all for 2 or 3 days before your test, and try to “fatten up” a little bit. That way you’ll have more clean fat and a lower concentration of THC. Don’t forget to make sure you piss in the morning before the test because a lot of metabolites collect in your urine during sleep. And take the urine sample mid-stream – the first bit of the stream has a higher concentration of metabolites.

    And it’s my pleasure helping people out. I hate drug tests so I like to do everything I can to combat them :)

    Thanks Lotus and I hope you are right. I think the odds are in my favor as well. I will post up my results sometime after Jan 23 for others to get some sort of “baseline” from if they are close to my usage history, metabolism, and time to test.
    It’s really a shame that these drug screens seem to target marijuana use as just about all other substances are cleared out so much faster, at least for urine screens. I mean is it really fair that one can bang down some hard drugs on a Friday and be clean the next Monday, while someone else smoked ganja 3 weeks ago and gets caught/fired/jailed because they pissed hot? I would say not fair at all, but then again this isn’t about being “fair”.

  337. Lotus Says:

    Couldn’t agree more. There’s no reason a weed smoker would be any worse at their job than a person who goes to a bar after work or has a glass of wine at home. And most of the time if you are hiring a true (meth/heroin/coke) addict you’d know it anyway just from how they look/act. But like you said it has nothing to do with being fair or being logical. It’s due to the financial benefit (insurance discounts for companies that drug test) and because of the stigma associated with recreational drug use. Because we’re all a bunch of lazy, free-loading hippies who can’t wait to steal from our employer or come to work blitzed.

  338. Rc Says:

    I just took a drug test for employment, yesterday night. I had my daughter with me and used he urine. She didn’t produce enough to fill to the line. So I had used some of my dirty urine. When I got to the testing site I aleady had some of her urine but it wasn’t enuf so she threw that out and made me sit in the waiting room drinking water. I had my little girl drink water as well and she gave me some more but still was not enuf and I had to top it off with my own urine. I am shitting bricks right now bc I really need this job. It might have been half and half but it was very clear since both of us were drinking water back to back. I’m worried but trying not to. I smoke twice a day and this Tuesday b4 the test I smoked that nite. I thought this was the best Website to ask my ques. Without judgement and u seem to really help people out. Also I did not smoke at all yesterday. Please help put mymind at ease.

  339. Rc Says:

    Also I’m 5’5 and 107 lbs. I have a very fAst metabolism. Does that matter? Help me please.

  340. Lotus Says:

    Rc- That’s a pretty unusual situation to say the least. I’m not sure what your chances are to be honest. Since you mixed in clean urine at a 50:50 ratio and were also diluting heavily, I’d say your chances are probably pretty good. No guarantees though since of course you were only 24 hours clean. Wish I could help more but I just haven’t really had any experience with those circumstances. Wish you the best of luck! Let us know what happens.

  341. deepbalde Says:

    Test day tomorrow! I remain clean and today is day 15 of that. No big deal. I actually increased my cardio during the last two weeks to 25 and 35 miles of running per week respectively, and ceased all strenuous activity a few days ago. I’m attempting to fatten up a bit now and I have my dilution methodology tested and down pat. I can put down a gallon of water over a few hours and take a few B complexes and literally watch my urine go from clear to light yellow (almost neon) in a matter of a few voids. I have been supplementing creatine (actually loading) for the past 5 days. Sounds good but…

    I decided to investigate my specific test and it’s an EMIT, but not the dummy EMIT I was hoping for. The FDSU5 (forensic drugs of abuse 5) also screens for adulterants such as creatinine, nitrite, pH, and specific gravity. Nitrites and pH shouldn’t concern me as I am not going to do post-urine adulteration. However the creatinine and specific gravity screens have me quite concerned. It appears that a creatinine value of 20mg/dl to 100mg/dl is “expected” and anything lower hints at intentional dilution. The SG values they are looking for aren’t clear, but there doesn’t appear to be much variation between high and low normal values.

    At this point I’m trying to figure out the least amount of fluid to consume to dilute and make sure I’m below 50ng/ml without falling below the normal values for creatinine and SG. I should have bought some test strips from eBay to determine the minimal dilution necessary (if any) to pass, but I’m out of time now. Should I go less aggressive with the fluids (maybe half gallon) in an attempt to satisfy the adulterants test? Do people really fail this part for drinking 8 glasses of water in the period of a couple hours before the test? Should I not worry about over-diluting since I’ve been loading with creatine? I think I can pass legitimately with minimal dilution since I was never a heavy smoker, but I don’t want to have to test again because my screen was inconclusive due to possible dilution. To be honest this test is driving me bonkers even though the stakes are so low (not losing a job or anything). It’s almost like I’m playing an unfair/crappy game and all I can think about is passing/winning so it can be finally over with. Since it’s an EMIT I should be given the initial result (positive/negative) nearly immediately, correct? Thanks!

  342. deepbalde Says:

    Well day 16 clean and I submitted a urine sample this AM but the results are unknown. I did slight dilution as I expected a creatinine test, but I was incorrect. I ended up doing a general EMIT for 8 substances with confirmation, meaning no adulterant test.

    The doctor gave me what I wanted as I fulfilled the medication contract, although I am still curious what the results were. I need to go back in a month and hopefully will be told what the results are, especially if it was positive and went to the GS/MS for confirmation. Kind of doubt it at this point though.

  343. Stoner22 Says:

    I got a great job position I’m
    A new hire long as my drug test goes well ill start soon as they get the results. I’ have until the 28th of January to complete the test . Unfortunately my test center only operates from 11am-2pm Monday through Friday. They are doing a 10 panel. Drug test. I’ll be using my younger sisters urine I think my problems lies with timing. My sister leaves for school around 7:45 am and. I want to head to the site. Around 11 it’s only 5 minutes away from my house. What would u suggest as far as keeping the urine good meaning so it doesn’t spoil. As far as keeping it warm I have a easy pour container that fits great between my legs and I have plastic wrap and a ruber band I have already practiced at concealing the easy pour plastic cup and it worked pretty well even under jeans. Is that good enough?

  344. john Says:

    Im taking a 9 panel oral drug test for probation. I brush my teeth and drink monster before i go in and pass with flying colors. Why would this be. I smoke weed everyday all day. How is this?

  345. Lotus Says:

    deepblade- Sorry I didn’t see your comment till today as I was out in the woods. To answer your questions, taking creatine will satisfy the legitimacy tests or should. You can dilute all you want and so long as your creatine concentrations are still proportional to the water you’ll be fine. In my experience people hardly ever fail for dilution. It does happen, but the number of people that dilute vs the number that fail for it is tiny.

    Also I am somewhat doubtful that the doctor will offer up the results of your drug test on a silver platter. But I do think if you asked them for it next time you go they’d provide them for you.

    stoner22- I think that container should work fine as long as it’s not too thick. You need it to be a little thin so that the heat from your body will transfer to the liquid and keep it warm. Basically you need to just keep it from about 8am to about 11am, right? That’s only 3 hours so I would bet that it would likely stay good on its own. However, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to stick it in the fridge right away and then heat it back up around 11 when you take the test. You could even just have her pee the night before and keep it in the fridge till the next morning. If you don’t have access to a fridge then an ice chest would work fine too.

  346. Lotus Says:

    john- Oral swab tests are very finicky and only pick up the most recent 24 hours. You could have had a combination of luck and perhaps neutralizing and diluting the THC that shows up with your toothbrush/monster drink. Also presumably you wouldn’t smoke right before the swab test so it was probably a good amount of hours from when you last smoked to when you were tested. Can’t say for sure but those would be my guesses.

  347. john Says:

    Thanks for the reply. But it was 2pm when i brushed my teeth then started drinking monster. Then at 4pm i smoked and drove to probation. I took my test at 5pm. I am stumped. Maybe a monster is the way to cheat a siliva drug test.

  348. Clueless Says:

    Do you know if my urine would be positive on a etg drug test if I took 1 15 mg of adderal xr 7 hours before the test? I was completely clean prior of any drugs or alcohol for 2 months? Thanks!!

  349. Stoner22 Says:

    How thin does the plastic container need to be?

  350. Lotus Says:

    john- That’s very strange. Has this only happened once or multiple times? If you just figured out the trick to swab tests we can make you a famous man! :P

    Clueless- EtG only tests for alcohol so assuming that’s all you took you will be fine. Adderall wouldn’t trip it.

    Stoner22- It’s not super important, just thin enough that it transfers heat pretty well. As long as it’s not more than a couple millimeters (1/16″ or so) thick it should work fine. If you heat it up to 98.6˚ at home and immediately keep it inside your body it will be fine. A thicker container would work too since it would just trap more heat in. It would just be harder to heat the contents of a thick container up.

  351. Clueless Says:

    Thanks! What if it is a test that tests for both drugs and alcohol? Thx for all your help.

  352. Lotus Says:

    Clueless- The EtG would be a completely separate test from a drug test. So unless they took some of the urine from that EtG test sample and poured it into a different test kit, or if you pissed into two different tests at the same time, then I think they are only testing for alcohol.

    If it was a test for both drugs and alcohol then it means it was not an EtG test. For example the panel test for alcohol only tests back about 12 hours, and an EtG goes back like 72 hours. If it was a panel test with alcohol (which I have encountered), they are very inaccurate about the actual alcohol. I got drunk as hell one night and took an alcohol test about 6 or 7 hours later and pissed clean.

    The amphetamines are a different story. If it was a panel test with amphetamines and alcohol, then you will probably not pass since you took the Adderall that same day. You might get lucky though if you hadn’t used any other amphetamines that week, or if you drank a bunch of water during your test. It’s possible that the amphetamines would not have been fully metabolized and released through your urine. But I wouldn’t count on it. Hopefully it was just an EtG test and you’ll be fine.

  353. Clueless Says:

    Thank you so very much!! Your site rocks!!

  354. Clueless Says:

    Another question – if I have clean urine and freeze then take out to defrost (I assume about 8 hrs) then take with me to test – if not tested – can I then freeze the same urine again for the next month in case tested? Or should I just get clean urine and freeze again? I really appreciate your help!

  355. Lotus Says:

    If you warm it up to room temp you’ll want to replace it with fresh stuff for next time. It’s probably not necessary if it’s only warm for an hour or two, but 8 hours is too long and you’ll need to replace it to be safe.

  356. Clueless Says:

    Thanks. I have yet another question. How long for adderal to get out of your system before a clean drug test?

  357. Lotus Says:

    Usually about 3-5 days, sometimes about a week.

  358. Stoner22 Says:

    Trick to swab test is easy I’ve done plenty brush teeth and gums use peroxide when brushing of course don’t swallow use listerine too. I never got a problem even smoke the day before and took a test I never put the swab on my cheek though I leave it between my teeth stick gets wet enough I pass everytime

  359. Lotus Says:

    Thanks for the tip Stoner22, I’ll have to add that to the guide.

  360. Stoner22 Says:

    Currently waiting for my drug test I heated it up
    To 101 degrees got here at 1130 and it’s 1245 this is ridiculous I’m pretty sure I have nothing to worry about though since it’s disclosed between my legs and privates BUT COME ON

  361. Stoner22 Says:

    After 2 excruciating hours I finally took the test. Went well except for holding pee betwen my legs -.- measured between the right degrees and he checked the specimen got yes on both I should get a call from my job Tuesday or Wednesday

  362. Lotus Says:

    Stoner22- Hell yeah good to hear! Best of luck but I think you’ve got it now :)

  363. ?? 4you Says:

    Hi boyfriend had urine test today has not smoked for 48 hrs he does smoke often, but not all day long just couple puffs a day and not every single day he had 5 screen but drank “the stuff” he had nothing to eat or drink since 7 pm last night they said nothing after midnight but water, woke went to bathroom several times in am and consumed water all day the day before he drank the bottle of that stuff hr before filled it w/water drank that used bathroom here then drove to test gave them sample he said looked bit light but not to much they said was inconclusive and would send to lab now we don’t know what to expect.what do you think will happen? Guy trying to white him said he may reschedule test for couple days but they sent it off

  364. ?? 4you Says:

    Also sorry he’s used before and passed but were thinking they may be getting bit smarter and testing for more then that any advice besides someone else’s urine stuff he could do to retest by Friday?

  365. ?? 4you Says:

    He smokes vdoes nothing else and will not till he finds work from now on sadly he wasn’t smoking much at all anymore but loss of his job he started up again he got phone call stopped second he knew , but seems to be are luck lately. Guess what would you do if ya had to retest in 2 days from last test that was inconclusive and sent to lab or do ya think news won’t be good?

  366. ?? 4you Says:

    Every other time he’s used the drink it worked but has been couple yrs

  367. Lotus Says:

    ?? 4you- Hard to say. The lab might find too much THC and fail him. I’m not sure why it would be inconclusive that’s a little strange. There’s not a whole lot you can do in 2 days if you can’t substitute. Drink a bunch of water and take creatine/B12 is the best suggestion I can give. If you can retest I’d try to get synthetic urine and pass that way.

  368. Stoner22 Says:

    Got the call from the job AND I GOT THE POSITION I WANTED this site rocks

  369. hippychick Says:

    l took a ua for a job 2 days ago … had to retest today as urine to dilute … l had alot of coffee this morning and a bottle of soda had peed prior to finding out l had to retset they gave me 5 min to get to the collection point and gave me 32 oz of water l was required to be observed on this test the urine was almost colorless … what are the chances l will pass given this info … only smoke fyi

  370. ?? 4you Says:

    Just wanted to let ya know lab came back w neg result ,so with no smoking for 48 hrs and flushing system/peeing for that 48 he pulled frozen bottle of” The stuff “out of car defrosted it then put in fridge he drank it an refilled w/bottle of water drank that as well and went for test without urinating till test was inconclusive sent it to lab was negative today. We weren’t sure bout it being room temp/frozen must have worked though :-) Says this is 5th time for him over the yrs but last time was bout 6yrs ago so we were not sure, thanks for your advice ,first time ya could find anyone w/real answers about this kinda thing :-) He wanted me to tell ya he had couple beers night before as well and what outcome was .

  371. Clueless Says:

    Me again …. Do you know if adderall shows up as methamphetamines in a urine drug test or is it something different? The reason I ask is that I am an a prescription drug (Effexor XR) that does show up as a false positive for methamphetamines in a urine drug test – so I was curious if it shows the same or not. Thanks for any insight!

  372. Lotus Says:

    Stoner22- Rad! Congrats, glad to be of service :)

    hippychick- When did you last smoke? How much did you normally smoke?

    ?? 4you- Hell yeah that’s awesome! Beers and extra water probably helped flush out the system and reduce the concentration of THC metabolites. Thanks for updating us

    Clueless- The majority of tests differentiate between amphetamine and methamphetamine.

  373. BayArea Dabster Says:

    Hey Lotus, i get tested sometime this morning between 10am-12 pm. I smoked a few hits on wednesday (about 4 hits) And on thursday i took 2 maximum strength azo pills to flush my urine. My emp officer uses the iCup and i was thinking about mixing water in with the urine. Some other kids at my school told me it worked for them and I was curious what you think about my plan. Please get back to me asap i would greatly appreciate it. Thanks lotus, we all appreciate your time on this thread

  374. Lotus Says:

    BayArea Dabster- Sorry I am probably replying too late to help you. Mixing in water in an iCup would probably be fine, as long as the water was the right temperature. I’d recommend drinking as much water as possible before the test.

  375. ??WILL I FAIL?? Says:

    hi there i was wondering how to pass a drug test for cocaine but keep my medication (methadone) in my system

  376. Lotus Says:

    ??WILL I FAIL??- No real way to do that. Coke is out of your system within 5 days (sometimes less) so you can just not use coke for about 4 or 5 days and pass that way. Otherwise there’s not really much you can do.

  377. seattle Says:

    I have heard that synthetic pee will not work any more I have to go to a job that does onsite testing what would be the best option for me to use and I can’t use my own pee smoke like a chimney but my buddy has a boy that I can get clean pee from but he is young will his pee work for me or should I use the synthetic option please let me know asap thank

  378. Lotus Says:

    Clean pee will work no matter what age, gender, etc the donor is. Also, synthetic urine works fine assuming you use a modern formula (like QuickFix Plus).

  379. seattle Says:

    What about the monkey whizz synthetic have you heard of anybody failing a test with it? It comes with a bladder can you do manual labor when wearing the bladder suck as tying rebar and packing rebar around? Do you think it can be worn for 10 hours a day? This form has helped out a lot thank you for responding as fast as you did. What do you think of of the product the urinator have you heard of it. I guess it take two 9 volt batterys has a computer chip and a heating element and you can put your own real or synthetic pee in it.

  380. Lotus Says:

    Q: What about the monkey whizz synthetic have you heard of anybody failing a test with it? It comes with a bladder can you do manual labor when wearing the bladder suck as tying rebar and packing rebar around?

    A: Sorry, I’m not really familiar with that device. I don’t think you’d need one though. I don’t think the foreman or super on site is gonna want to watch you piss. That’d be pretty sketchy.

    Q: Do you think it can be worn for 10 hours a day?

    A: I don’t think the synthetic urine would stay warm for 10 hours, and the device itself would probably be really uncomfortable. Other than that I don’t see why not. Can’t you leave it in a vehicle or bag and sneak it on before the test?

    Q: What do you think of of the product the urinator have you heard of it. I guess it take two 9 volt batterys has a computer chip and a heating element and you can put your own real or synthetic pee in it.

    A: Sounds like a giant waste of money to me. Just get a couple handwarmers, a thermometer and a thin container like a 5 hour energy bottle.

    In my opinion you should just get Quickfix or AgentX whatever synthetic stuff is available, and keep it in a 5 hour energy or similar bottle, then use a handwarmer about 10 mins before the test to get it hot, and check it with a little thermometer. This method will save you about $100 over the urinator. I don’t see a problem with Monkey Whizz but they just seem a little sketchy to me.

  383. Stink3 Says:

    Hi, I lasted smoke exactly 29 or 30 days ago , a couple hits of a bowl. I was a previous smoker heavy but stopped in August of last year. Smoke one time prior to the Jan time around Nov 3 hits that time. I had an ua for a new job today, drank a half gallon of water last night, took a home test in the Am which came back negitive. Tried to drink a lot of liquids today before test. Nervous because this is a good job, sample is being sent out. Will I be ok to pass?

  384. Lotus Says:

    Aside from some crazy Final Fantasy bad luck, you should pass the test 100%.

  385. Stink3 Says:

    Thanks. I hope so. Really good position and company!

  386. deepbalde Says:

    Well the doc sent my urine test results via stale mail and THC (and everything else) came back negative. Yay. You can read my situation if you scroll up to January.

  387. TT Says:

    With regard to pre-employment testing. It used to be that you emptied your pockets and they put you in a private bathroom with toilet water blue and sink shut off. Is this still the case? I don’t think they can “frisk” you or ask you to remove any clothing other than your coat unless the employer requires a physical exam. Please let me know.

  388. TT Says:

    With regard to substituted urine; Will 92 degrees pass or does it have to be exactly 96-98 degrees? Hard to keep a sample in that range. I’ve tried hand warmers and tostie toes. Any advice is much appreciated.

  389. Lotus Says:

    deepblade- Good to hear! Congrats and thanks for the updates :)

    TT- Depends where you get tested. Most places don’t even bother having you empty your pockets. 92 will not pass a test with temp check, you’ll need to be at least above 95 and probably within the 96-99 range. If you’re having trouble, try using a thinner container and using body heat to keep it warm. Either the armpit or groin are good areas that should keep it in the right temp range.

  390. OregonGrown Says:

    Hi I have a urine test for diversion for a DUI. It is mainly looking for alcohol I think (which I have been clean of) but I smoke for my back. Do you think I am safe using my girlfriends sisters pee as a substitute who is clean? I’m believe it gets sent to a lab to be tested. Costs $80. Then another in a month that supposedly detects alcohol up to 2weeks prior that costs $105. Also if I clean out and use my own next time will they be able to tell samples are from different people? Or would they even check? Thanks

  391. Lotus Says:

    They won’t check and can’t check. You will be perfectly fine assuming the donor is clean.

  392. cord Says:

    Interesting thing happened. Went to take a test with synthetic urine and while i was urinating accidentally spilled a bit of my I own dirty urine in cup. I quickly poured what little was in there into the toilet and shook it very well. I then poured 3 oz of synthetic into cup and gave it to the employee. I had just smoked meth night before and xanax. Will that residual urine affect my teat result?

  393. Lotus Says:

    No that shouldn’t be a problem at all.

  394. vimigo87 Says:

    I have a drug test at lab corp tomorrow and its a urinalysis. I was going to buy some agent x synthetic urine but im worried about the possibility of it being detected that it is synthetic urine. Do you know if I have someone pee for me and I place it in a condom and put it in my bra would it stay normal temp and if it will still be good if I have to sit a couple of hours to take the test?

  395. Lotus Says:

    Synthetic urine is made specifically to pass those tests, it will work fine. I have heard positive results from Agent X and from Quick Fix.

    I’m not sure if keeping it in the bra would keep it at a high enough temp. Usually you want to keep it in the groin or under an armpit or something. Also a condom isn’t recommended because it might break, I’d suggest a thin container like an emptied 5 hour energy bottle.

  396. Alaska Says:

    I have a drug test tomorrow morning using an icup with built in adulteration. don’t know what that means exactly, but I planed to use agent X which ive had in my room for several months. … is that oookay?

  397. Lotus Says:

    Yep, it should work fine. Agent X has a shelf life of at least a year or so. The adulteration is checking for chemicals and temperature, but Agent X should take care of that for you. Just make sure it’s the right temp when you pour it in (96-99˚F)

  398. gotcha Says:

    30+ days clean from thc, hair cut to about 1/2 inch been repeating 409, dawn, tide, hair dryer in between those and afterward applying heet which is 99% methyl Alcohol and again hair drying after rinse. Hair test tomorrow I’ve been doing this method for the last week esp day of my last hair cut. Thoughts?

  399. Lotus Says:

    I’m gonna guess you’ll pass just due to your clean time + the short length of your hair. I don’t think washing it is gonna help – the only thing that has proven to work is “hair relaxer.” Good luck!

  400. worried Says:

    Lotus,
    I went cold turkey late December to early January of this year. Prior to that I’d smoke 4-6 times a week. I relapsed about 2 and a half months after quitting (3/15); I literally took half a pull from a bowl. I have a U.A. test tomorrow, but I’ve been working out drinking lots of water for the past 17 days, and as suggested, stopped working out for the last two days. I’ve passed three home tests (50ng), one 7 days after taking that pull, another yesterday morning, and one today. The second one had the most solid line (does this even matter?). I am still nervous as hell. Should I just take someone else’s urine or try and pass it with my own? My concern with packing someone else’s is coming in “too hot”… And are these home tests really accurate? This is for pre-employement.

    Thanks,

  401. Lotus Says:

    They’re not incredibly accurate, but if you passed 3 consistently then I’d say you have a good answer there. Also since you were clean for 3 months with only a tiny amount smoked on one day I would say you were probably clean within the week anyway. You should be perfectly fine using your own.

  402. babygirl Says:

    I took a 5 panel yesterday with sub urine in a bottle and put it inside me. The pee cup didnt have a temp strip on it. The lady just took the cup and poured it into a test tube put it in a package with the slip I brought in. Would she have told me if it wasn’t warm enough?

  403. Lotus Says:

    Yeah they probably would have failed it right then. You should be fine.

  404. babygirl Says:

    You’re a doll!! Thanks…

  405. LadyB Says:

    Hi! First off thanks for all the helpful advice this is the best website I found for passing a drug test! I just had a couple questions, my plan is to collect the urine from my donor in a plastic solo cup and then transfer it to a five hour energy bottle and place it in the refrigerator tonight(my test being tomorrow am). Will that method work? I have an appointment at 9 am for orientation and drug test I don’t know when the drug test will be,however. The orientation could take 3 hours will my urine sample stay usable if it is warmed by my body for 3 hours if need be? I’m a woman and I have large breasts so I was planning on keeping the bottle in between my breasts will that keep the urine warm enough or get too warm possibly?

  406. Lotus Says:

    LadyB-

    Yeah that should work fine.

    The orientation could take 3 hours will my urine sample stay usable if it is warmed by my body for 3 hours if need be?

    It should be fine for 3-5 hours, but if it takes more than 8 hours or so you should probably have a backup plan.

    I’m a woman and I have large breasts so I was planning on keeping the bottle in between my breasts will that keep the urine warm enough or get too warm possibly?

    I don’t know if it will keep it warm enough or not. You can do an experiment with water tonight – see if it stays at temp after a couple hours and if so urine should be no different. I would recommend a better option though. For example many girls have had success keeping it inside them, and guys typically keep it in the groin area as well since it’s warmer there.

    Good luck! Let us know what happens.

    hello, im in the army and for the past 3 weeks ive been smoking spice. well I guess my unit found out (don’t know how) and I took a urine test and passed, but I also had a blood test with an additional pee test, will I pass this one also?

    Wish I could help you more daniel, but without knowing exactly what types of tests they administered I can’t tell much. I can more or less guarantee the blood test will come up negative, since everything has probably left your blood by now (when was the last time you used it?). If the additional pee test is a RadioImmuno Assay or GC/MS then they MIGHT pick up something. But it depends on many factors like when you last smoked it, what type it was, what type of tests they use, etc.

    I would guess you’ll be in the clear but I can’t promise anything. Best of luck, let me know if you have any more questions.

    Let me elaborate..i was using the very same day of all the test, i had been smoking non stop every day for the past 3 weeks (4g a day). I really dont know the name of the test. The first pee test is your standard army one, after i was done with that they took me to the hospital lab and i had my blood drawn and an additional pee test (dont know what kind of pee test, the cup looks like the regular army one) like i mentioned earlier i got the results from the first standard pee test with negative results. Im just freaking out about the blood test and the additional pee test. Hope i cleared it up a little bit for u. Keep up the good work!!!

    The first pee test is probably a simple panel test only checking for the normal illegal drugs like weed, opiates, speed, benzos, etc. The second pee test is probably a lab test, and may or may not include advanced screening via GC/MS or RIA.

    If the spice contained any of these synthetic THC chemicals, you have reason to be concerned: A-796260, AM-1248, AM-2201, AM-2233, AM-694, JWH-018 5-chloropentyl, JWH-018, JWH-019, JWH-022, JWH-073, JWH-081, JWH-122, JWH-200, JWH-203, JWH-210, JWH-250, RCS-4, RCS-8, UR-144, XLR-11.

    Most spice “blends” do not advertise which ones they use, and typically avoid the JWH-* and AM-* series since they are illegal. So you might get lucky and they might use one that is not in that list there. Unfortunately it is almost impossible to tell since companies consider their ingredients to be proprietary/trade secrets. Basically if it’s one of those 20 or so chemicals that you ingested, you might be (for lack of a nicer term) completely fucked. BUT there are hundreds of other chemicals it could have been, so you might be in the clear.

    Again I really wish I could help more and wish you the best of luck.

    Thanks!! I really value ALL the info. You are doing a great job! One more question i do have is how long till the unit gets the results? (last question.promise) how long till i find out the results?

    Thanks

    Appreciate it! Don’t worry about the questions, I enjoy answering them – it’s what I’m here for :D

    Typically a lab test will give results within 2-3 days, but sometimes it can take up to a week or more (it depends on how backed up the lab is and whether they have to do additional screening or not). Since it’s on military time it could take a couple weeks, hard to say.

    You should be fine honestly. Not much you can do except try to drink a bunch of water and use a mouthwash asap before the test (within 15-30 minutes before).
