Marijuana is the most frequently abused illegal drug in America. It's derived from the plant Cannabis sativa and its primary chemical is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). To receive the desired effect, you either smoke or orally ingest marijuana. THC stores itself in the fatty tissues of various organs, so it can remain in your system for an entire month. Fortunately for users, there are ways for you to quickly detoxify and cleanse your system of marijuana.

To speedily rid your system of traces of marijuana, you can purchase oral medications and detoxification drinks. According to Pass a Drug Testing for All, you should drink a reefer detoxification drink a few hours before a scheduled test. Between the time you consume the drink and wait to be tested, you should drink as much water within reason as you can. The consumption of the detoxification drink and water will increase your need to urinate, and frequent urination will help you flush toxins and THC out of your system. Oral medications will cleanse your hair, blood and urine of THC. The majority of oral medications are composed of natural ingredients like vitamins, minerals and herbal cleansers. Both oral medications and detoxification drinks can help you pass a drug test for marijuana within a couple of days.

Because THC is stored in your fat cells, you should instantly establish a fitness routine that combines anaerobic and aerobic exercises. Exercise promotes fat burn and releases THC byproducts from your body. Another natural remedy is large quantities of water. Again, when you drink an abundance of water, your urination rate increases. Urination dilutes the concentration levels of marijuana in your system. Natural remedies will not work as rapidly as detoxification products will but can dispense toxins from your system in less than a week.
