Marijuana Talk: How to Detox from THC Naturally

Written by on December 17, 2018 in News Flash with 0 Comments

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines addiction as the “compulsive need for and use of a habit-forming substance (such as heroin, nicotine, or alcohol) characterized by tolerance and by well-defined physiological symptoms upon withdrawal.” This means that once you become addicted to a habit-forming substance, the detox process can be difficult on an individual.

It’s said that the THC detox process can cause multiple withdrawal symptoms that include irritability, frequent headaches, depression, anxiety, a decrease in appetite, and a lack of sleep. However, research shows that THC actually relieves these symptoms in medicinal marijuana users, so it's more than likely that an individual isn't going through withdrawal symptoms. Rather, they are experiencing the symptoms they would be experiencing had they not have been consuming THC.

The best way to do a THC detox is going to be a natural cleanse. Regardless of the reason why you're a THC user looking to detox, below are ways to detox from THC naturally.

1) Stop using THC completely.

This seems to be a given. However, sometimes, it's best to be as clear as possible. For your system to cleanse itself of THC, you must stop all consumption of cannabis which includes edibles and THC oil. You can't begin detoxing until you stop using THC entirely.

2) Get physically active.

Once you have stopped consuming THC, it's essential to get up and exercise. THC is stored in the fat cells of the body, which means the more fat your body has stored, the longer it will take to detox. Doing cardio exercises such as running on the treadmill or the elliptical, will help burn fat and speed up the detox process. Another bonus to working out is your body will release “happy” endorphins which will make you feel better as well.

3) Increase your water intake.

An increase in water intake will come with an increase in exercising. Drinking plenty of water while exercising is crucial as it will keep you hydrated. However, it's also important as it will help your body expel all of the toxins that you have in your system.

4) Eat a healthy diet.

As a part of the detox process, it's advised to rid your diet of high amounts of sodium, sugar, and fat. Foods that contain the above-mentioned increase water retention (sodium) and slows down your metabolism. That makes it hard for your body to expel the THC metabolites. Opt for foods that are high in fiber, plus plenty of colorful fruits and leafy vegetables.

5) Drink more tea.

Drinking tea isn't only soothing, but it's also a great way to cleanse your system. Aim for antioxidants and cleansing teas. Red Clover, Burdock, and Milk Thistle teas are all great for detox and cleansing.

6) Focus on your mental health.

Last but definitely not least is to focus on your mental health. For those who started using THC to aid in their anxiety and depression, it may be a great idea to look into therapy during this transition. It's equally as necessary to maintain your mental health and detox, so don't be afraid to ask for assistance.
