Mouth Swab Drug Tests – Do They Work?




Drug tests are routinely carried out by employers on both current and prospective employees. They are generally looking for signs of marijuana use, and there are various types of test. The hair follicle test is the most difficult to beat, as the tell-tale compounds remain in the hair for a long time. A urine test is another form of drug test, but perhaps the most often-used drugs test is the mouth swab test. This involves taking a sample of saliva from in the mouth that is then tested for signs of marijuana use.

So, does the mouth swab drug test work? Indeed it does! That doesn’t mean that there is nothing you can do to make it easier to pass. Bear in mind that your employer will give you advance notice of the impending test, so you have time to prepare. So, what is the test looking for, and what can you do to make sure that it doesn’t find it? Let’s talk about this in more detail.

How to Pass the Mouth Swab Test

Before we continue, there’s one thing we should say: there is in fact no way of ensuring 100% that you will pass the drugs test. The only way to ensure this is if you have never smoked marijuana! There are, however, many  things you can do that will certainly make it more likely that you will pass, and the first of these is to stop smoking immediately you know there is a test on the horizon.

The mouth swab test is looking for traces of tetrahydrocannabinol – THC – in your system. THC is the compound in cannabis that is psychoactive, the part that gives you the high. It can stay in your system, and be detected in your mouth, for several days or even longer, depending upon how frequently you smoke, and other biological factors.

Once you know your test is imminent, you need to start cleansing your system of the toxins that are within. You should drink – and pass – water on a regular basis, and also use Listerine in the mouth as well as brushing your teeth on a very regular basis. You need to remove all traces of the THC and other toxins from your mouth, and it’s not going to be easy. However, these actions alone are not enough to give you a fighting chance, especially of you are a regular user. Check out this article for a few other ideas, in particular the use of a detox kit.

Using a Detox Kit

The detox kit that the article mentioned above talks about is called ‘Toxin Rid 10 Day Detox’. It’s a 100% natural product that is designed to flush the THC and other toxins from the system, but be aware it is a 10-day programme that you must follow to the letter if you are to stand the best chance of passing your mouth swab test. Once again, there is no 100% guarantee, but many people have used it and passed, and it will most certainly increase your chances considerably.

It involves taking pills – several a day at set intervals – along with drinking water and so forth. It’s also worth noting that the same brand has a specially developed mouth wash for this purpose, so you might want to consider using that alongside the detox. We strongly recommend that, no matter how infrequently you might smoke marijuana, you take the detox programme seriously before your test comes along. After all, this is your job at stake, so follow the advice given, and you’ll stand the best chance of a pass.

6 Reasons to Try Cannabis Edibles




Are you looking for a reason to try cannabis edibles? If you’re wondering if there are benefits to edibles that you can’t get with other forms of cannabis, the answer is yes. Here are some of the best reasons to try cannabis edibles.

  1. Some edibles are boosted

When you smoke cannabis flower, you’re only getting cannabis. That’s not a bad thing, but there are brands that sell edibles that have been boosted with other ingredients. For instance, you’ve probably seen capsules with added herbs to help you sleep – the same is true for edibles. 

One of the newer enhanced cannabis edibles are the Bits adaptogen-boosted edibles. These new cannabis edibles contain just 5mg of THC per Bit so you don’t overdo anything. Each flavor is packed with a unique blend of adaptogens like ashwagandha, reishi, elderflower, lemon balm, ginseng, guarana, and rose hip.

Why adaptogens? Adaptogens have been proven to have a positive impact on the central nervous system by decreasing sensitivity to stressors. In other words, adaptogens reduce stress and anxiety and contribute to an overall sense of wellbeing. When you consume cannabis edibles boosted by adaptogens, you’re going to feel more relaxed.

  1. Edibles provide precise and consistent dosing

One of the best reasons to try edibles is for precise and consistent dosing. When edibles are made, the cannabis is thoroughly and evenly mixed in, so each serving has the intended dosage when the final product is made. In addition, premium cannabis brands like Verano lab test each batch to ensure quality and consistency with all of their products, including cannabis edibles. 

When you smoke flower, you won’t always get the same amount of THC. It’s nearly impossible to know how much THC or CBD you’re getting from smoking flower. Even when you smoke the same strain in the same amount, the THC and other cannabinoids are distributed unevenly throughout each bud. 

If precise and consistent dosing is important to you, then edibles are going to be your favorite cannabis delivery method.

  1. Edibles are tasty

Edibles taste good, so why not try them? It’s just like eating a snack or a treat, but with a purpose. If you’ve avoided trying cannabis tinctures or oil because you don’t like the flavor, that’s understandable. Edibles are different because the taste of cannabis itself can be easily masked. 

Brands go out of their way to come up with recipes that taste good because they know some people don’t like the strong flavor of cannabis. Edibles like brownies, cookies, and chocolate bars usually just taste like any other cookie, brownie, or chocolate bar. Premium cannabis brands will also use quality ingredients to produce the best cannabis-infused gummies, hard candies, and baked goods.

  1. Edibles are easy to carry

If you want to carry your cannabis around discreetly, that’s easiest with edibles. They usually come in smaller packages that you can fit into a pocket or bag, and edibles are easy to eat without anyone suspecting you’re consuming cannabis.

When carrying edibles, be smart about where you bring them. Make sure you know where you can and can’t have them. If you’re headed to the airport of a government building, for example, you’ll want to leave your edibles at home. 

  1. The effects of edibles last for a long time

Smoking flower is great when you need relief quickly, but when you want the effects to last a long time, edibles are your best option. When you ingest cannabis, it takes longer for the effects to kick in, but those effects will last for a much longer time. You also don’t need to consume as much cannabis to get these long-lasting effects.

Everyone is different, and the timing depends on a multitude of factors like our metabolism and whether you’ve eaten or have an empty stomach. However, in general, it takes between 30 minutes and 4 hours to start feeling the effects of edibles. From there, the effects can last a few hours or even up to twelve hours. This is why many people take edibles before going to bed – getting that full impact while they sleep makes them wake up feeling incredibly rested.

  1. Edibles are a great alternative to smoking

Although smoking cannabis is probably the most popular consumption method, it’s not for everyone. Edibles won’t expose you to the potentially harmful effects of smoking. If you’ve been avoiding trying cannabis because you thought you had to smoke it, edibles are the perfect opportunity for you to try cannabis. 

Already familiar with edibles? Try something new

If you’ve been consuming cannabis edibles for a while, maybe it’s time to try something new. If you’ve always been into baked goods, branch out and try some beverages, chocolate bars, or even an adaptogen-boosted cannabis gummy for example. There are plenty of edibles to choose from so you can be sure you’ll find something new that you can enjoy.
