Nowadays, you can come across a wide variety of chemical products found on the internet that are advertised to cover traces of marijuana in your urine. As their advertisements seem to be reliable and realistic, some are proven to fail in masking or cleansing the body of toxins. The only possible effect of these masking products is to dilute the urine sample to a very low level that the THC of the sample drops below the standard cutoff of the marijuana drug test. Although it can dilute the urine to a substantial level, it is not recommended by some since it comes with its own consequences. Some over the counter drugs sold in drugstores have been known to work in masking marijuana content during drug testing. An example is aspirin, which is taken 4 times a few hours before the drug test. However, today, lab officials say that this will no longer work due to improvement of drug testing methods and advanced lab equipment that will ensure the maximum effectiveness of drug testing of marijuana.
Goldenseal, which is a herb used for the treatment of colds and flu, have also been rumored to mask drug testing for marijuana but have recently been claimed as out of date and obsolete. Although considered to be a masking agent, this one has been proven to never work since laboratories can easily detect high amounts of goldenseal in your sample and can be reported as attempt of adulteration. Another drug of myth is niacin, which was also found to never work at all. The same goes for zinc sulfate, which is claimed to bond with THC metabolites in marijuana, and because it gets solid, it passes as stool sample rather than a urine sample. This will not help in passing any of the urine, blood or saliva drug tests. Another popular and ineffective theory is adding water to a sample you are going to submit. This will change the specific gravity of the sample, a common contaminant test found in most laboratory tests. Even the chlorine in your local water source may be a factor worth considering since it can be detected in the test. This theory is also impossible today since supervision during the testing process is strictly practiced. The best way to pass a drug test is to buy a special drug detox product that will clean your body from toxins.
