Can You Use Niacin to Clean THC out of Your System? August 5, 2016

Niacin has been used in super high dosages for over 15 years to cleanse a person’s bloodstream of THC. This substance is typically stored in your adipose tissues, which makes any type of cleanse ineffective for 4 to 6 hours. If you plan to use niacin to cleanse from THC instead of detox drinks for THC, you must know that this comes with some pretty unpleasant side effects including nausea and vomiting and flushing. While “flush-free” niacin is available, be aware that it’s not an effective cleansing agent for THC.

Despite the fact that it has a long history of being effective, since it’s often used in excess, it has become a controversial detox method. A dose higher than 500 milligrams is not any more effective, but will produce higher side effects. Since this method cleanses your body of THC through your urinary tract, you must make sure that you’re drinking plenty of water. Following are some tips for using niacin for a THC cleanse.

First of all, you must avoid allowing THC to enter your body from all possible ways. You will not effectively remove this substance from your body if you don’t also remove it from your environment.

Approximately 4 to 6 hours before you want to cleanse, take a dose of 500 milligrams of niacin by mouth. Keep in mind that you are going to experience some pretty unpleasant side effects, including flushing. 

Then, over the next 4 to 6 hours, drink at least 4 liters of water. This is a critical piece of the detox process. During this time, you also want to eat a light meal to keep your body from burning fat and causing more THC to be released.

Before your final elimination, you should urinate at least 2 to 3 times. It’s fine for the first urine of the day to be yellow- but all urine after that should be clear.
