Doctors Say: “Pass A Drug Test Naturally is Easier & Better for Health”
Having to pass a drug test is not a new hoop that potential employees will likely have to jump through, but it’s certainly one that’s not going anywhere anytime soon.
Despite the best efforts of states like Colorado and Washington, while marijuana may be completely legal—even recreationally, employers still have the right to test for marijuana, and yes, terminate or deny employment based on a positive test for THC taken as part of pre-employment, or as a random drug test administered at the workplace or off-campus at a third party laboratory such as LabCorp or SonoraQuest.
But practitioners like Dr. Deborah Carlin suggest that the best and safest way to pass a drug test is to do so naturally. Carlin discusses the various methods for drug testing at home before or in lieu of drug testing in a lab, noting that toxicity drops with time.
Others, such as Dr. Goldstein of Health Tap note that passing a drug test naturally, using methods that won’t hide toxins, but remove them, is the best way to go. According to Dr. Wolfe, urine and saliva are the most commonly administered drug tests in the US and abroad: “There’s no harm in using something to detoxify the body’s urine or saliva, so long as that’s what it’s doing, detoxifying the body, not cloaking residues left behind by marijuana and other drugs that stick to the fatty tissues of the body and also come out in the follicles of hair throughout the human anatomy.”
Physicians are not just more likely to know how to pass a drug test because they are doctors, it’s also because they are many times in charge of administering drug tests and/or reading the results of drug tests taken by patients, potential employees, athletes, students, and those in the justice system.
Given that natural ways to pass a drug test are easier on the body, the method to the madness seems to be to stick with measures like good diet, exercise, hydrating well, getting good rest, and abstaining from chemicals that would cause a failed drug test. In some scenarios, however, job seekers don’t have the luxury of taking the time to “clean up” in order to pass a drug test. As Dr. D.E. Fisher states, “Drug testing is quite sensitive and highly specific. Most labs run very sensitive screens to identify major classes of drugs then when they find a positive they run a highly specific gas chromatograph/mass spectrometer. This test uniquely identifies the parent compound and its metabolites. If the sample chain of custody is good, there is only one explanation for a positive result.”
