A job seeker has enough worries attending a job interview to stand a chance of getting the job, leave alone the stress of worrying extra of how he/she will be judged by what they pee in a cup! It is pertinent that you do all that is possible so that you maximize your future employment chance and not let that Friday night doobie affect it. If you are asked for a urinalysis test, here is how you can stand a fighting chance to pass it.
How it Works
Urinalysis is basically drug screening to check for prior drug ingestions. The samples collected from the candidates are checked for the presence of THC’s primary metabolite called THC-COOH. The ratio that is checked for per milliliter of urine. The admissible quantity is 50 nanograms. The collected sample is split into half, the first half is detected for the presence of macromolecules by forming and measuring the amount of antibodies produced. If this is positive, then the second sample is tested. If this comes up as negative, it is clear that there has been no drug abuse from the individual.
The second sample is subjected to gas chromatography for detection of THC-COOH. It’s bad news for tokers, as THC is fat soluble, it stays in the system, much longer than any other abusive substances and releases itself from time to time, thereby staying put for up to 90 days. This can invariably account for being tested positive. Hence, the more it is consumed, the longer it is going to take to get it flushed for good.

The tips and methods are simple but needs to be followed if you are serious about getting that dream job. Here is what you need to do…
Quit toking for 30 days straight – its easy if its once in a while toker, but for a regular, it’s a tough call, but needless, you need to decide what comes first
Faking it full-on – people want you to submit a urine sample, it need not be yours if you cannot resist the temptation to toke it the day before. Sneak in a bag of your buddy’s sample and switch it when the time comes to submitting yours
Organic cleansing drinks – these are available in plenty, check for details and also check references if you are serious about using it. Some have tall claims but are not known to be that effective.
Synthetic urine – this is the most popular way to pass it, you can buy these from online stores and use it instead of your sample
