Now that you are here, I understand you are in the same situation I was in, a few weeks ago, desperately trying various remedies to clear my system from weed. After experimenting various remedies unsuccessfully and spending sleepless nights browsing for the right solution, I finally decided to give cranberry juice a try.
Why I Tried Cranberry Juice
Though cranberry juice offers amazing health benefits, it is not in the list of my favorite drinks as I don’t like the bitter taste and the after effects it leaves on my taste buds. However, now is no time for my prejudices, right? Particularly, when a drug test is due and cranberry juice can be a potential savior, I cannot entertain my taste buds.
So, what is in favor of cranberry juice when it comes to cleaning your system from weed?
- Being a natural diuretic, cranberry flushes out and cleanses your system.
- The juice dilutes your urine, which works great to cover up the weed presence.
- It also imbalances your pH levels thus disguising the presence of weed in your urine.

Since the detoxification process by cranberry juice can be slow, you have a chance to pass the drug test only if you have more than 10 days time to consume cranberry juice regularly.
How Did I Use Cranberry Juice To Clean My System From Weed
Cranberry juice can be made either by directly juicing cranberries using a blender or by boiling cranberries in water and filtering the contents.
I chose the second method for the simple reason that it sounded so effective.
I carefully chose the day to start my trial taking into account the day of drug test. I was particular about what the days of the week would be from day 8 to day 11. I had my reasons, which you will know as you read on.
The First Week – I diluted 5 ounces of cranberry juice with 20 ounces of water and drank it thrice a day an hour before food every time in the first week. I also reduced intake of food so I will be equipped for a tougher schedule the next week.
Day 8 To Day 11 – On the 8th day, I diluted 12 ounces of cranberry juice with 60 ounces of water and consumed it throughout the day splitting the quantity into 5 portions. The toughest part was to go without food to speed up detoxification. These were the days I was concerned about and hence arranged my schedule so these days fell towards the end of the week.
Day 12 To Day 14 – I again followed the quantity of cranberry juice I had in the first week. Now, my diet made me feel better as I started consuming whole foods on day 12 and went on to include easily digestible vegetables and fruits the next two days.
So, I was thus thoroughly prepared to face the drug test. With all the cranberry juice consumption, urine dilution and detoxification I was sure that I will hear only a favorable test result.
I was shocked beyond belief. I had failed the drug test. It was really unbelievable considering the fact that I not only consumed cranberry juice but also went on fasting mode, detoxified my body only to still find trace of weed in my system. Bodily effects of weed, I realized, are too strong for cranberry juice. Only I realized it too late.
Is That All?
My sorrow did not end with the ‘negative’ result. I had my share of side effects drinking cranberry juice though only up to recommended levels.
My urine was diluted but I had burning sensation every time I urinated and this lasted for about three days after I stopped drinking cranberry juice. I had nausea, stomach pain and diarrhea. All these symptoms of side effects gradually subsided after my break up with cranberry juice.
I learnt two lessons from drinking cranberry juice to clean my system from weed.
No. 1 – Cranberry juice has amazing health benefits but it may not be advisable to go all cranberry so you end up with side effects.
No. 2 – Cranberry juice is NOT EFFECTIVE in cleaning the weed from your system. So, you will flunk your drug test if you rely on cranberry juice to do wonders here.
