Does not work
on February 1, 2011
This detox system does not work. I bought two kits, and used them over a 14 day period, and purchased a box of 25 THC test strips at the same time. I stopped smoking two weeks before buying the kits. A friend of mine warned me that this would not work for anything other than drugs that metabolize quickly, and he was right. It took 62 days from the day I stopped smoking to the day I got my first negative test result. Some people that smoke small amounts will take less time than I took. I smoked several times per day.
More recently I tried to clean up again. I had only smoked 4 times in a 1 week period, then found myself wanting to quit my job. This time the smoke was very strong, and it took almost a month to clear up.
I'm overweight, and they say that contributes to the amount of time it is detectable. Regardless of what you do to detox, the factors that matter the most are the amount of THC you have consumed over time, the amount of fat in your body that can store the THC metabolites, and the amount of time you have given your body to detox. Non THC drugs can probably detox faster with a detox kit if their metabolites are soluble in water, but THC is not water soluble, so a detox kit that simply makes you urinate a lot will not help much. If your urine is so thin from excessive flushing, the test will show up as invalid, and they will either treat it as a positive test, or make you test again. Most pre-employment screenings treat invalid tests as positive signs that you are trying to cover something up.
To pass a test while you are still positive, the best method is to use someone else's sample... The problem is that the sample must be at body temperature. When you supply a sample, the first thing the testing lab does is check the temperature of the sample, and even if you keep it warm with your body, it will never be as warm as a real sample, because your internal temperature is higher than your skin temp... So be prepared to provide a warm sample if you plan to use someone else's.
