It is far from unusual these days for employers to test employees for drug use. Indeed, regular checks are carried out by many companies, and if you are a prospective new employee, you will certainly be subjected to a test.
The usual drug test is the mouth swab drug test, which can also be known as the saliva test. It is geared towards discovering THC in the saliva. THC is the psychoactive element of cannabis, and if present, means big trouble for you!
Now, we’re not here to preach. Many people like a smoke every now and again, and for some it’s a more regular thing. The problem is, if you know you have a drug test coming up – and in general, you will be given advance warning – how do you ensure you pass it.
The obvious answer, before we go on to give you a few more tips that might help, is to stop smoking marijuana several days before the test. This is the only certain way to get rid of the THC in your body – which can be there for some days – and it is something you must do. It’s going to be hard, but you can do it!
Here are a few further tips that might help you.
Tips that Might Help
Bear in mind that the following are tips that have been reported to help pass a mouth swab drugs test. We cannot guarantee they will work, and you will need to stop your drug use for days before the test
1: Sour Candies
One of the more unusual suggestions that we came across when researching how to pass a mouth swab drug test was this one – suck on sour candies. This type of candy changes the acidity of the saliva in your mouth. This can affect the results of the test, and reduce the chance of a positive result. Quite a few people have reported this method as being successful, so it’s worth a go.
2: Mint Gum
As with the above, chewing on gum will alter the fluid in your mouth. This may or may not be effective in helping reduce the traces of THC, and has been reported as successful by some people. Not to be done alone, as with all of these, you need to stop your smoking for a few days first, but do chew gum on the day of the test.
The popular mouthwash, Listerine, has also been put forward as a possible product to help you pass a mouth swab test, and in many ways this makes a lot of sense. Listerine is designed to clean the mouth of germs and protect the mouth, so it should go some way to removing traces of THC. Again, it’s no guarantee, but it may well help and you have nothing to lose by trying it.
4: Use Detox Products
There are a number of effective detox products on the market that we strongly advise you check out and use if you have a drug test coming up. In fact, it’s worth having one at home ready to use in the event at all times. They are specially concocted to wash out the toxins from the body, and should be used in conjunction with taking a break from smoking.
So, there are a few things you can do that will help you beat the mouth swab drug test, but remember, if you are told you have a test coming up in a few days, stop smoking there and then, and start that detox routine right away!
