Does Smoking Cigarettes Affect THC Detox?

First things first. Congratulations on finally deciding to cleanse yourself from marijuana. The fact that you want to kick the habit and get rid of Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, the active ingredient of marijuana, means you are off to a new start. Sure, learning a new habit can be difficult especially when you are used to smoking weed. Hence, a greater will power, discipline and determination is being asked of you.

Which brings you to the next question – can you still smoke cigarettes if you are on THC detox?

Cigarette and Detox – Not a Good Combination

You may argue that cigarette is not as harmful as marijuana. But think about this. Cigarette and other forms of tobacco contain an addictive drug called nicotine, so by definition, it is still a drug. Second, cigarette may not cause you to eat a lot without getting full or make you laugh without saying anything funny but it sure affects how your mind and body works. Third, cigarette is addicting, period.

So by smoking cigarette when you are detoxifying only means that you are inviting toxics to come inside your body. Keep in mind that cigarette is one of the deadliest substances that can affect your health – in a bad way – and can contribute to various diseases. Even if you flushed out THC on your body, the toxins still remain, no thank to cigarettes, and you’re not entirely “clean” on the inside.

So, what’s the best thing to do?

Stay on the clean, healthy path, of course. Quit smoking and drink lots of water. Push yourself to get up and exercise and eat lots of fruits and vegetables. As much as possible, include greens and fiber-rich foods in your diet and stay away from junk foods and red meat.

You are already or at least in the process of detoxing weed out of your body. Don’t waste your efforts by lighting up even just one cigarette stick.

Hey there :) I’m Kylie, a part of THC Detox team. I have smoked marijuana for more than 8 years. While I really enjoy it, I don’t want to lose my job because of a failed drug test. So I enjoy researching and sharing information on the methods that have worked for me, my friends, and clients.

But what if I have been smoking cigarettes? Does it mean the detox for thc won’t work?

Tobacco is tobacco, thc is thc, both completely different substances and if you are being tested for thc, that’s what the test is for, not tobacco. I’ve never even heard of a test for tobacco!! My adivice? Lay off the thc lol

    I think he’s asking does it affect the test if you smoke a cigarette regardless of the THC test.

      I agree, don’t smoke the cig. Seriously. It’ll affect the results of your drug test. The detox is specific for a reason. Only water.

I did the PreCleanse capsules for 2 days prior to the EverClean treatment for 5 days which were the liquid bottles. I was an excessive smoker but I am 114 lbs and hardly have any body fat. For 3 days I had green urine and then it went back yellow and clear. I didn’t smoke cigarettes but I used my vape alot daily to substitute for not smoking weed all day long and when I went to take the drug test it came back positive. After reading this forum I’m a firm believer that the larger amount of nicotine in my vaping affected my detox 100%. I am switching to zero nicotine now and will take a test again on Thursday i’m gonna give it another 5 days drinking just water. I will post an update of my test results then! If your having the same type issue with your test I highly suggest checking back to see if it came back negative again.

Hey there. I agree with the overall idea of not inviting more toxins in your body while detoxifying, but in terms of clearing THC-COOH (the metabolite that urine screens look for) this is wrong. The phase 2 metabolism of THC (the part where it gets turned into a chemical that can be peed out) relies on glucuronidation, a metabolic pathway in our liver. Tobacco smoke actually increases this metabolic pathway in the liver, hence increase metabolite excretion.

I have a nicotine test (urine) coming up on Wednesday and must be nic free. Will the Ultra Eliminex help me pass the test even if I smoked the night before?
