Crack Elimination Time

Q: I smoked 2 grams of crack. I have a drug screen in 10 days.  I have been drinking a lot of water and detox tea.  Before this, I was clean for 2 years.  Will I be able to pass urine screen test?  I am 5’11 & 245 lbs.

You may go through this information on crack clearance time and see where do you fit into it.

As you may realize, the minimum time for Benzoylecgonine clearance is usually 4-5 days. If a person had been a regular user or consumed it heavily or used it with alcohol, then the time may go up significantly. Caffeinated drinks also tend to hold it back in the body.

Take care,

        3 days is a very short period for cleansing. However, if this was a one time use and you’re cleansing yourself very aggressively, it may clear off from your urine.

      This is too short a period for cleaning up your system. The drug requires at least a week to get out of the system.

      Keep drinking lots of water. Avoid caffeine and abstain completely from alcohol. This would speed up the excretion of the drug.

      You may pass, if this was a one time use of the drug. Also, during these seven days, you need to take all precautions.

      Drink lots of water, abstain from alcohol and caffeine. Take plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Exercise daily.

    My co-worker is 5’10” 200lbs and would like to know if you can provide any information related to an “oralert” saliva drug tests detection times for someone who has recently smoked crack 2 grams and drank quite a bit. The subject in question isn’t very honest but I’d peg him as a regular user. He has a drug test Friday morning, Any information would be helpful.

      Saliva drug test detect cocaine up to 20ng/mL. Detection in saliva begins immediately after smoking and stays for almost a day.

      To pass the test, ask him to abstain completely from cocaine and alcohol. Drinking plenty of water would help.

      He needs to include plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables in his diet. These are natural detoxifiers.

      Also, he needs to brush his teeth thoroughly twice a day to clean out any speck of drug or its breakdown products in the oral cavity. Using a non alcohol mouth wash would be beneficial.

    I ingested a small amount of crack approximately 7 days prior to obtaining a hair follicle test (underarm hair). How likely is it that the hair has grown out far enough or was cut close enough to the skin to read positive?

      You have good chances of passing the test. Just keep observing a few precautions. Firstly, abstain completely from alcohol and cocaine.

      Limit your intake of tea and coffee. Drink plenty of water.

      Include plenty of fruits and vegetables in your meals. Stay physically active.

      Was this a one time use of the drug? If yes, you have a chance to pass. However, if you have been using it regularly, things become complicated.

      Some amount of drug may have been stored in your fatty tissues, liver. This stored drug is slowly released into the blood stream to give a constant baseline level.

    Ok so i just need to know if im going to be ok for a drugtest thats possible at the end of january. Thursday night me and a friend of mine were drinking pretty heavily and i did about 1.5g of coke and a little bit of hard. Friday i did nothing and then saturday i also drank and did maybe 2g of hard and a couple lines. It was quite a bit of coke on top of the fact that i was drinking and i read about this shit “cocaethylene” that stays in your system when coke and alc are mixed. There was one rehab page on google that said cocaethylene can stay in your system for 30 days. I have never heard of any traces of cocaine regardless of how much theyd used or if they had used it with alcohol being in someones system for a month. What do you think guys? It seems like 14 days is the max time any traces of coke can be in your system even if taken with alcohol.Advice please i might have a drug test at the middle of january. Just wanna make sure ill be ok in lets say 3 weeks. I used thurs and sat but other than that ive been clean for the whole year before.

Prior to that I binged a week before with about 2 grams. I have a test in 6 days. I do not drink alcohol nor do I drink coffee. I’m 5 foot 7 and 175 lbs. Today is Monday, and I will refrain from using and have a UA Friday afternoon. I also do sauna therapy about 20 minutes twice a day and have cut sugar from my diet for a week now. I have five days and am working out running a two miles a day everyday day for a week straight now followed by fifteen minutes sauna and another fifteen minutes sauna after work at night.Sweating, eating fruits and vegetables drinking water and cranberry juice taking zinc and niacin, b-complex, b-3, charcoal supplement, detox tea as well as Midol. I went to urgent Care on Sunday (yesterday) and was diagnosed with std in which they gave me four antibiotic pills and a strong antibiotic shot. This had increased bowel movement and has me urinating normally again. Will this antibiotic medication aid in cleansing my body of cocaine or hinder it for my test on Friday afternoon. Sorry for multiple questions but this will be my last one just curious on the effects of STD medication in relation to my UA. Thank you.

    I smoked 10 £20 rocks. I just wanted to know would this be out of my system in 12 days, I also consumed alcohol along with it as well.

    I cleansed my system fully for 10 days straight with water and pure warm lemons.

    The cutoff for the test I’m doing is 150 Ng/ml and it’s a urine test, I haven’t used in 2-3 months before that.

    Failed test yesterday, so it just comes to show that you can’t clean your system in 12 days if the lab sets the equipment to 150ng/lm

    Infact I had 13.5 days and trust me I cleansed my system like mad and still Failed.

    Let this be a warning to others if you don’t have 4 weeks then you won’t be able to drop below the 150 ng/ml mark.

      Water, yes. It’s the best drink to take to detoxify.

      Only moderate amounts of toned/ low fat milk may be taken. Milk with fat would slow down your liver, delaying the detoxification process. So, it may be avoided.

    Took lab urine test on the 26 of sept. Did a t cup urine test 2 days before. Passed that. Did crack from the 8th at 2:00 am to 6:00 pm sat. The 9th. Was crack cocaine. Wanted to no if u think I passed. Im really stressing about. It was 19 days of not doing the drug when I took the lab test.

      19 days should be plenty of time for drug elimination but if they’re thorough then they’ll trace every last spec.

      Crack leaves a very distinct marker in your system so it’s easy traceable.

      Elimination time varies between each individual, my last binge was 12 days ago and I would have thought with being fit and active it would only be small amounts left but maybe I’m wrong. I personally think I’ve definitely failed, I have been in my job nearly 8 years.
