Do Detox Drinks Work and How Do They Work?

If you’re looking to take a break from smoking, vaping, or dabbing, then you have probably researched various detox methods. Which is probably what led you to this article. You might be wondering, are detox drinks effective? Or are there more effective methods for detoxing your system?  How fast does a detox drink work? There are a million different detox methods scattered across the pages of the internet, but only a handful of methods really work. Whether you’re looking to take a tolerance break or looking to detox your body, there is a method that will work for you. It might just take a bit of time.

How Does A Detox Work?

To understand how detox drinks work, you should first understand how a detox works. You should also know what part of your body you are attempting to detoxify. If you smoke, vape, or consume tetrahydrocannabinol then your body processes this natural plant compound and stores it in fat cells and organs. This compound is known to be fat-soluble, which means it can dissolve in fats and oils, and also binds to fat cells naturally. The rate at which your body stores these compounds can be affected by your body’s weight, metabolism, and the frequency that you consume dry herb, wax, or edibles. However, it is believed that this compound can be metabolized and stored in the human body for 30 days or longer.

What is Detoxification?

By definition, detoxification is the “removal of a toxic substance from the body.” A toxic substance can generally be defined as a substance that is not naturally found in your body, or an excess of substances found in your body. Once a toxin is cleared from your bloodstream, then your body is detoxified. However, the detoxification process is not that simple for all substances.  When it comes to tetrahydrocannabinol, your body will naturally rid itself of any it has stored after four to six weeks. However, that will be affected by your weight and metabolism rate as well. The amount and frequency that you smoke, vape or consume edibles will also affect the amount of time it takes for your body to naturally detox. The more you consume and the more often you consume, the longer it will take for your body to detox.

What Exactly is a Detox Drink?

A detox drink works to provide a “clean” drug test in a shorter timeframe than a natural detox would take. They are designed to work fast and offer a window of time when you can pass a drug test, even with tetrahydrocannabinol still in your system. Detox drinks usually start working about 90 minutes after drinking them and can provide a clean result for up to six hours.

How Does a Detox Drink Work?

Although “detox” is in the name of most detox drinks, they don’t actually work to remove toxins from your body. Instead, many detox drinks are designed to trick laboratory tests by flooding your system with vitamins and proteins. These compounds make it into your urine sample after 90 minutes and can stay in your system for up to six hours. So, even if you have tetrahydrocannabinol in your body, the test results will show an overwhelmingly high result of other compounds instead. A simple way to think of it is like adding hot sauce to a burrito. The flavors of the burrito will still be present, but if you put enough hot sauce on the burrito then the burrito will taste overwhelming of hot sauce.  Detox drinks act as the hot sauce to overwhelm the sense of the burrito laboratory taste test.

Will A Detox Drink Work Well for You?

There are a few factors to consider before using a detox drink. Detoxing is not the same process for everybody, and you should take into consideration your weight, body fat percentage, and consumption rate. If you consume dry herb or edibles daily and weigh over 200 pounds, then a standard detox drink might not work well for you. However, if you smoked once a week before your drug test, then a basic detox drink should help you pass a test.

However, most medical experts will not recommend using detox drinks if you want to truly detox your body. The only way to ensure that you do not have any tetrahydrocannabinol in your system is to detox the natural way. Simply put, there is no quick and easy way to detox your body. It takes time and a dedication to not smoking, dabbing, vaping, or eating edibles while your body clears the metabolized compounds within naturally. If you consume dry herb daily, this might take 30 days or longer to clear your system.
