How to Get Weed out of your System | Primary Purpose Behavioral Health

If you are asking "How to get weed out of your system?," can we safely assume that NOT SMOKING is off the table?

Cannabis (weed) and the THC which causes people to feel "high" will leave your urine, blood or hair several days after last use. THC is non-detectable in saliva tests after a few hours. Just remember...

  • Your body can clean out THC naturally with the right food, drinks, and exercise.

  • Drinking water is the most tried and tested way to flush your system.

  • Detox kits have things like vitamins to help your body get ready for a drug test.

  • It’s safe to detox from THC, but talk to a doctor if you need more help with substance abuse issues.

THC is a lipid-soluble chemical, meaning it bonds with fat in the body - making it harder to remove from your body quickly (just like losing weight!) The more you smoke, the longer it will take to remove all weed from your system.

How does THC work?

The THC in Marijuana stimulates the parts of the brain that contain the highest number of receptors, causing the "high" that people feel. Other effects include:

  • altered senses (for example, seeing brighter colors) or sense of time

  • changes in mood

  • impaired body movement

  • difficulty with thinking and problem-solving and memory

  • hallucinations, delusions or psychosis (when taken in high doses)

Researchers are still studying the long-term effects of THC and marijuana - but we can't imagine that they will discover that overuse has, in fact, been keeping us healthier all this time. For help getting sober, and for sober living assistance, contact Primary Purpose Behavioral Health today.
