Will pomegranate juice help pass drug test? (yes!)

Pomegranate juice can help you to pass a urine drug test for marijuana. You can use it only as a part of the same-day method. If you want to clean your system of THC completely, pomegranate juice will not help.

Below we’ll explain how to use it and why it works.


Drink a glass of pomegranate juice 3 hours before the test with 5g of creatine.
Then drink a glass of juice 1 hour before the test.

You also need to take vitamin B, electrolytes, and activated charcoal. We explained this method step by step here: How To Detox THC in 24 Hours. Step By Step Guide

So you just need to use that method and replace the grapefruit juice with the pomegranate juice. It acts the same way.

How does pomegranate juice help to pass a drug test

This juice acts as a CYP3A4 and CYP2C9 inhibitor. What does that mean? These CYP3A4/2C are enzymes responsible for the metabolism of THC in the liver and intestines.

Before THC is excreted into the urine and feces, it needs to be metabolized by these enzymes.
When you inhibit these enzymes, THC metabolism slows down, and fewer THC metabolites are excreted into the urine.

As a result, the concentration of THC metabolites in the urine becomes below the detectable level, and you can pass the drug test.

Again, this only works as a part of the same day flushing method explained here:

Can you use pomegranate juice to detox from THC?

Because this juice slows the metabolism of THC in the liver, it also slows the excretion of THC out of the system. When THC is not metabolized, it stays in the blood and fat cells for a long time.
