Pass Drug Tests

Urine Testing

Consider the risks of diluting the sample. Dilution is the process of reducing the concentration of drug or drug metabolites in the sample in order to Pass the Drug Test. This is accomplished by adding fluid to the sample. Diluting a sample will lower the specific gravity and creatinine level (creatine is used by muscles and creates a waste product called creatinine). Drug testing laboratories all routinely test samples to detect dilution.[1] If you decide to go this route anyway, be sure to use warm water, as the temperature of the sample is recorded. Most facilities will put you in a room with no sink, and where the toilet water is tinted.

  1. Internal dilution or "flushing". Many people assume that drinking excessive amounts of water will accomplish a negative result. However is it dangerous (people have died from water intoxication) it is also risky because colorless urine arouses suspicion, possibly flagging the sample and causing them to run the sample at a lower CONFIRMATION level of 15 ng/mL (15 nanograms per milliliter) instead of a STANDARD test screen level of 50 ng/mL (this example is of THC). When the UA is run before the screen it will read that the specific gravity is low and it will be flagged, this also will cause a lower level test to be run [2]
     
  2. Substitute the sample. Substitution is a method that involves substituting your urine with that of another persons or a synthetic sample. Synthetic urine comes in two basic forms, the liquid type found in smoke shops that is similar to what is used to calibrate lab equipment or vials of a powdered concentrate that can be added to a few ounces of warm water. Both are kept in a delivery deviseMagnum Synthetic Urine with a temperature meter. This method works on every employment urine test (provided some conditions are met such as controlling the temperature (92 -100) and delivering the sample in 4 minutes or less). You can guarantee it stays to body temperature if you use something like "The Strap" which can be found on ebay. It keeps synthetics to body temperature and keeps it concealed under clothing. A liquid crystal thermometer with 2 degree offset like the ones used on the collection cups is ideal and a properly sized organic warmer as a insulating source as it is the body that is the regulator. Some labs are now testing for synthetic urine. For your legal protection it is critical that you do not use this method for any government tests including military, civil service, and especially probation.
    • The liquid premixed urine has a couple of drawbacks as it doesn't have a head or small layer of bubbles on the surface and it has no smell. Powdered synthetic urine does. Many labs and collection sites will reject your specimen if they suspect it is synthetic and ask you to urinate under direct observation.
       
    • You can substitute someone else's urine. You will want to test it with a reagent panel strip available at here Collect the urine fresh and keep it in a sealed, refrigerated container, and use within 48Hrs, as urine will darken and bacteria will grow. You can also freeze the urine for longer storage. If deterioration becomes noticeable the lab may suspect something. A UTI or Urinary Tract Infection will be suspected if a micro UA is run as stale urine becomes like ammonia and the pH will change.[3]

Hair Testing

  1. Understand how the hair testing process works. We'll use marijuana for our example since marijuana drug testing is by far and away the most popular test. When marijuana (THC) metabolites are in the blood, they'll end up in the blood vessels, including those in the head, and get filtered through the hair.Toxin Wash Detox Shampoo In basic terms, at least, this is how hair drug testing comes about. The marijuana THC metabolites will remain in the hair as a permanent record of drug use for months. A hair drug test involves cutting 50-80 strands of hair from the base typically at the crown of the head. Minimum length of 1 inch is necessary or body hair such as face chest or underarm hair can be used. Hair drug testing can go back months, showing the toxins a person may have used in a time-line fashion. Masking hair is not realistic as the sample is washed to remove left in products or external contamination such as second hand smoke.
     
  2. Know what to expect in the test. Hair Collection Procedure:

     
    • Testing requires a swatch of hair about one eighth of an inch in diameter and an inch to an inch and a half long, cut close to the scalp and at the crown of the head if present. If the donor has no head hair or 1/2 inch or shorter the collector may use chest, underarm, leg, or face hair in that order of preference.
       
    • Find an appropriate spot for hair collection, then twist a bundle of hair making sure the tightly twisted hair is more than 1/4 inch in diameter. This is almost always done in middle back of head
       
    • While holding the tightly twisted hair in one hand, spread open the hair collection tube with the other hand, then enclose the twisted hair in the collection tube as close to the donor's scalp as possible
       
    • Place the twist tie around the hair below the plastic collection tube. This keeps the hair intact during shipping and also indicates the root end.
       
    • Cut the hair bundle as close to the scalp as possible. Do not remove the collection tube from the cut hair.
       
    • Return the collection tube holding the hair to its original position in the hair collection tube holder. Do not remove the twist tie.
       
     
  3. Lower toxin levels in your hair. This can be much harder if cocaine or synthetic drugs are used by dark haired people as it is the melanin (hair color) that is the carrier as apposed to keratin (hair) in a THC screen. So repeated use in dark hair people is almost impossible to reduce below detectable levels.[4]
    • Regular smokers should use a clarifying shampoo regularly to remove toxins that are excreted daily from scalp.
       

Saliva / Oral fluid-based screen

Saliva / oral fluid-based drug tests can generally detect use during the previous few days. Saliva or oral fluid based drug tests are becoming more prevalent because of their convenience, low cost and the recent adaptation of the FDA approved Intercept test can be given in-house on the job for pre-employment and random screenings, random, post-accident, reasonable suspicion, or return-to-duty testing.

  1. Know the detection times. Detection in saliva tests begins immediately upon use:
    • Marijuana and hashish (THC): An hour after ingestion, and up to 24 hours depending on use.
       
    • Cocaine (including crack): From time of ingestion up to 2 to 3 days.
       
    • Opiates: From time of ingestion up to 2 to 3 days
       
    • Methamphetamine and ecstasy (MDMA, "crank," "ice"): From time of ingestion up to 2 to 3 days.
       
    • Benzodiazepines: From time of ingestion up to 2 to 3 days
       
     
  2. Try to avoid the test. If one is being tested and has used in the past 3 days you will need to overcome the saliva collection. To do this you will have to avoid submitting saliva and perform the steps requested of you by the instructor.
     
  3. When instructed to place the collection pad between the lower cheek and gums and gently rub the pad back and forth along the gum line until the pad is moist, you will fake this movement and rub pad on teeth.
    • Once moist, you are supposed to leave collection pad between cheek and gums for a full two (2) minutes (again hold between teeth).
