Drug tests-they seem to be everywhere these days. It is virtually impossible to get a new job or to keep an old one without undergoing tests for drugs. Sometimes it is the employer’s requirement and sometimes, like with employees in industries covered by the Department of Transportation, the testing is required by law. Legal situations such as child custody or probation monitoring often require passing drug tests. So, suppose that you are a user of weed products and you have lab tests for hash coming up soon; could Toxin Rid for THC detox act as a remedy and help you to pass a urine drug test which is the commonest test used to screen if drugs can be detected in your body?
In this review, we will discuss who makes Toxin Rid, what the ingredients are, where you can buy it and the most important question does it really work to act as a cleanser for weed detox? We will spend a little time discussing pee drug testing as well as how marijuana products are handled once they get into your system. In the end, you should have a good idea about whether you should rely on Toxin Rid to pass a drug test.
Who Makes Toxin Rid?
Toxin Rid is made by and its website is Toxinrid.com. It is one of the least revealing websites of any detox product that I have seen. The address of the company is given as P.O. Box 2011 Redmond, WA USA 98073-2011. Their telephone number is 1-877-Toxin-rid.
There is a contact us form on the website as well. From the about-us section of the website, the 1 day to 10-day Toxin Rid programs is described with an indication that their products will act as a cleanser and clear you of toxins in your blood, to pass a saliva test and to beat a piss urinalysis for drugs. You can also shop for Toxin Rid products on their website. There are two glowing testimonials on the website extolling the virtues of Toxin Rid products.
To give you an idea of the price, the 10-day program which consists of 150 pre-rid tablets, one ounce of dietary fiber and one fluid ounce of detox liquid at whopping a cost of $ 189.95! Listed under the instruction on how to use the products are dozens of 5-Star reviews! Later in this article, we will look at reviews from neutral sources to get a better idea of how well Toxin Rid works in cleansing your system of drugs. Finally, regarding the website, nowhere is there a listing of the ingredients of the Toxin Rid products although the ingredients are listed on the packages as we shall see.
Let us spend a few minutes understanding how THC the psychoactive component of the pot is handled within your body as it related to the claims made about Toxin Rid as a THC detoxification product. If you smoke Cannabis Sativa, THC enters your bloodstream directly from your lungs and is carried throughout your body and brain. If you take THC in edibles, the edibles are digested to release the THC, then the THC is absorbed into the portal system of blood vessels which takes it to your liver where it is metabolized to the active compound 11-OH-THC and the inactive compound THC-COOH which is what is evaluated in the urine drug test. This process is called the “first pass” effect which greatly reduces the active metabolites compared to taking the products by smoking or by sublingual or oromucosal spray where the “first pass” effect is avoided. In either case, however, your liver is the one and only place where THC detoxing takes place in your body. Following detoxification in your liver, the THC-COOH is stored in fat cells and some of it is excreted in your urine and feces.
Several factors affect how fast your liver works in detoxifying your body from THC metabolites. These include:
- How frequently you use THC products
- What the concentration of THC is in the products that you use
- Your age
- Your body type-lean versus fat
- Your exercise level
- Your diet
The most important factor in determining how fast detoxification of weed products occurs is how frequently you use those products and how concentrated the weed is. In recent times, weed products containing as much as 20-30% THC have become available. These types of products will take much longer to detox than older products with perhaps 5-10% THC. Frequent users will take longer to detox than infrequent users.
Lean body types, with more active metabolism who exercise vigorously, will detox faster than body types with more fat, with slower metabolism who do not exercise vigorously. Vigorous exercise burns fat cells for energy and in-so-doing releases THC-COOH which enters your bloodstream and then is excreted in urine and feces.
Younger people detox faster than older people because their metabolism is faster. Diets consisting of lean meats and vegetables will encourage the release of THC-COOH to be excreted in your urine and feces. These latter factors are of relatively minor importance compared to the frequency and strength of THC products that you might use in determining how long it will take to accomplish THC detox.
As a general rule, infrequent users will have THC-COOH levels detected below those required on drug tests a few days to about a week after their last use whereas heavy users might take as long as a month or more to achieve passing levels on urine tests after their last use. With this information in mind, let us now look at the ingredients of Toxin Rid products and see if they are likely to provide THC detox for you.
What Are The Ingredients Of Toxin Rid Detox Products?
Please look at the attached copy of the ingredients of the 10-day Toxin Rid detox program for details. Without recounting the information on the product label, we can divide the ingredients into several categories: Carbohydrates, minerals, electrolytes, and various herbal elements in the pre-rid pills.
In the detox liquid are almost exclusively minerals and electrolytes and then there is the dietary fiber.
We can state unequivocally that nothing in the pre-rid tablets or in the detox liquid has anything to do with detoxifying your body from THC or THC-COOH! The dietary fiber could promote excretion of THC-COOH in your feces instead of your urine thus reducing the amount in your urine and helping you to pass a urine drug test but that is not detoxification.
Toxin Rid Instruction For Use
What are the directions for how to use Toxin Rid detox products? We will explore the directions for the most complete Toxin Rid program, the 10-day program. The following are the Toxin Rid instructions:
- On day one, take three of the pre-rid tablets an hour for five hours
- Eat lots of high-fiber foods and lean protein and drink plenty of water
- Do not exceed 15 pre-rid tablets in 24 hours and repeat this process for 9 days
- On the last day of the program two hours after your last pre-rid pills, drink half of the detox liquid followed by 16 ounces of orange juice, distilled water or filtered water
- Do not eat or drink any more fluids for two hours
- Wait two hours and then drink the remainder of the detox liquid
- Fast for two more hours and then eat and drink normally
- One hour before your test mix the dietary fiber with 8 ounces of distilled or filtered tap water and drink within two minutes
- Wait 15 minutes and drink 16 ounces of water but do not drink any more orange juice or water
- Urinate two or three times in the next hour and proceed to take your test
You might be interested in how long does it last but I could not find a good answer to that question.
Wow, that is quite a complicated process, isn’t it? But does it have anything to do with detoxification of your system from THC products? The answer is a resounding NO!
The program is a veiled fluid dilution program masquerading as a detox program. The claim on the Toxin Rid website that: “with Toxin Rid, the detox rate can be sped up by 50 percent or more” is quite honestly, ridiculous. There is nothing in the ingredients of Toxin Rid products that can speed up metabolism! As mentioned, the dietary fiber could divert some THC-COOH from your urine to your feces thus reducing the amount of THC-COOH in your urine and helping you to pass your test but again, that is not THC detox.
Where To Buy Toxin Rid Detox Products?
The full range of Toxin Rid detox products is available on the Toxin Rid website. Other online sources include the Testclear website, but none of the usual sources for detox products like Amazon, GNC, and Walmart, for instance, carry Toxin Rid products. You will, in all likelihood, not be able to purchase Toxin Rid products at stores near me but will have to order them online.
Does Toxin Rid Really Work?
Toxin rid reviews. Let us turn now to two sources of information about whether Toxin Rid will give you the results you want or not. One source is detailed, online reviews of Toxin Rid products and the other is individual reviews of actual users of the products. Some suggested detailed reviews can be found here, here, here, here, and here to name just a few. We can summarize by saying that these detailed reviews all extol the virtues of Toxin Rid detox products while perpetuating online myths about detoxification. They promote the false idea that diuretics because they make you pee frequently “flush out” toxins to cleanse your system, or that drinking a lot of water “flushes out” toxins or that minerals, electrolytes, and herbal elements can “speed up” detoxification. None of these are correct ideas about detoxifying your body from THC products or from other toxins like alcohol or opiates.
Let us now look at individual reviews from actual users of Toxin Rid products.
The Testclear website lists dozens of individual reviews of Toxin Rid products and the overwhelming number is very positive.
What are we to make of all of this? We can state unequivocally that the Toxin Rid product ingredients have nothing to do with drug detox including THC detox. If you follow the program and you are a light user of weed products you will likely pass your test due to urinary dilution and diversion of THC metabolic products from urine to feces. You could accomplish the same outcome by not using weed products, following the dilution guidelines and buying some inexpensive electrolyte solution at your neighborhood drugstore and buying some fruit pectin fiber at your local supermarket.
Should you use Toxin Rid products for THC detox?
Toxin rid, especially the 10-day program is outrageously expensive and the ingredients have nothing to do with actual detoxification of your body. Save your money and follow our advice and you are just as likely to pass your test as you would be using expensive “detox” products like Toxin Rid.
