Anyone know if Kombucha works like one of those drinks from gnc, as a detox for passing a drug test?

i wouldn't buy into it. It all depends on what you are trying to "detox" and its metabolism. Basically how its excreted (i.e urine) and in what form (i.e drugs for example prescription drugs are usually excreted via the kidneys in some metabolite form). The excretion is key.

So, I would say NAH.

Best way to pass a drug test:

Do not take drugs!

In my line of work,the drug tests are lame.
If you take your old lady's pain pills and you don't have a script for them you automatically get a week off(if caught) have to go thru treatment and get retested all on your dime

I super-doubt kombucha is a detox. Your best (but probably least comfortable) solution is do a google search for "niacin flush." Your skin may turn red a be a little itchy for a couple days but you'll be clean. You can double-team it and do niacin and drink cranberry or pomegranante juice (cran is best) or if you don't fee like doing the niacin flush you can just drink a metric ass-ton of cran juice for a week or so.

It especially helps if you're not a fat guy, seeing as THC is stored in your fat when it's not attached to a cannabinoid receptor.

Reno, not Revvy

And:

drug [n]: A substance that has a physiological effect when ingested or otherwise introduced into the body


Ethanol most certainly does that. The phrase "drugs and alcohol" was started as a deterrent to those who ask why there is still a prohibition on marijuana when ethanol is proven to be a far more dangerous drug.

Sorry Reno....I saw the "Re" and the "Vy" in your SN and just jumped to conclusions. And thanks for the history lesson, although I will stand by my original opinion that despite how alcohol can literally be defined as a drug...society does not really classify alcohol as a drug, since the term drug is usually referring to a controlled substance or something that your doc has to prescribe for you. Tomato FIGHT!!!! No seriously though, I agree with you.
