Whether we like it or not, getting a job typically means that you will be under a lot of scrutiny — much of it totally legal. Depending on your state, companies can legally ask you if you use birth control, if you have had felonies, and also if you have been fired for issues dealing with people.
Many companies may also choose to go the illegal route and look for clues that you may be trying to have a baby. Around three of every four companies will also get so sneaky as to look at your social media presence to see whether or not you will mesh with their culture.
Drug screening is mandatory in around half of all companies, with many industries requiring it as a "given" prior to hiring everyone. One of the most common ways to drug screen new applicants is a urine test — and if you're a stoner who doesn't want to give up toking you need to learn how to pass a urine test.
Thankfully, you can learn how to pass a urine test pretty quickly. Here's what you need to know...
Before we talk about the mechanics of how to pass a urine test, we need to put a disclaimer.
Any of the methods that you can use to pass a urine test can fail, especially if you recently smoked pot. The only way to know how to pass a urine test without fail is to know how to abstain from pot — for at least a month.
That being said, if you choose to partake in marijuana while on the job search, you may need to take risks. Or, better still, you may need to just try to find a job that doesn't drug test.
Now that we've said our peace, we can discuss how to pass a urine test.
First things first, assess how much time you have.
How much time you have on your hands will influence a number of options you have to pass that piss test.
If you have a month before your mandatory drug test, there's a good chance you can sweat it out. If you have only two weeks to a week, you might need to start working on a plan involving hydration, saunas, and detox goodies.
If you only have a day or two, the chances of you actually passing a drug test with your own urine are small. Having this amount of time means that you should stop reading up on how to pass a urine test, and start buying a fake urine sample.
For the purposes of this article, we're going to assume that you have more than three day.
No matter how much time you have, stop smoking pot.
Smoking pot or just taking anything with THC will just destroy all the effort you're putting in on passing a urine test. Urine tests work by detecting THC, and that's why you are currently working on detoxing your body.
THC lasts as long an entire month in your system, which means that ingesting any THC will put your ability to pass the test in jeopardy. If you have to have some kind of buzz, opt for CBD oil instead. It's legal, and it won't likely be picked up by tests.
The best way to pass a urine test quickly is to "flush yourself" out.
Anyone who writes about how to pass a urine test will tell you that the key to passing most drug tests involves diluting the sample. Drinking lots of water, eating watery foods, and also just exercising to sweat out most of the THC is good prep for the week prior.
However, as you get closer to the date, you may need to drink a gallon of water throughout the day to dilute the sample. Some even start chugging water in the hours before a test to dilute their urine — and actually succeed in passing the test.
There's a reason why this works. After a certain point, drug tests will not be able to pick up super small traces of THC in diluted urine. This is why this method works so well, but even though it's the best choice, it's still best to give yourself a week of flushing to prepare.
Here's the scoop on "flush kits."
Some people also swear by urine test "flush kits" a couple of days before the test. These kits are packed with Niacin, caffeine, and other substances which happen to be strong diuretics. This allows you to "piss out" all the THC before the test and potentially dilute the amount of THC in your sample.
The truth is that diuretics like the flush kits don't always work. In fact, many people believe that water will work just as well — and studies actually back that. So, if anyone tells you how to pass a urine test and suggests flush kits, you might want to take that with a grain of salt.
Overall, just taking a break from drugs and diluting the sample should work.
Urine tests are relatively easy to pass and are way easier than hair, blood, or spinal taps. As long as you know how to dilute your urine, you know how to pass a urine test. It's just that simple.
