These drinks can be expensive—up to $60 a pop—but that’s a small price to pay when your job may be on the line. They all offer the same thing: a same-day, temporary fix for your THC-tainted piss, so long as you use ‘em exactly as directed.
First up, we had Jolene try out a 17-ounce bottle of Rescue Detox. According to Karen, the very sweet Applied Sciences customer service lady we reached at the “LIVE SUPPORT” number listed at the bottom of the bottle, Jolene had to avoid eating for five hours before she did the cleanse. Luckily, it was Sunday, so Jolene had just woken up from a four and a half hour nap after spending the morning smoking and eating an entire large portion of Popeye’s mac and cheese, as one does.

There are several of these on the market, “cleansing supplements” that, at a glance, seem to be nothing more than herbal energy drinks. On the back of each bottle, the language used is deliberately vague.
“Frequent urination indicates that you are experiencing optimal cleansing.”
For context, Jolene’s marijuana consumption is probably slightly, but not much, below average for stoners. She smokes a bowl most days after work, and blazes up two to three times a day on the weekends. Occasionally she’ll have an edible or do a dab, but says she usually sticks to traditional smoking methods—bowls, bongs, and joints. Most of these drinks caution “heavy” users to double their dosage, or go with a more concentrated version, so if you smoke more or less than Jolene, you’re likely to have different results. And none of the results we got here should be considered scientific or at all conclusive.
In the photo above, you’ll see Jolene’s first pre-drink test. It is very positive. The “C” on the test stands for “Control.” The line next to it appears whether the test is negative or positive. The “T” stands for “Test.” If a line appears in “T,” the test is negative. If no line appears, the test is positive. As you can see above, Jolene was not able to produce a “T” line because she is high af.
When it comes to balancing a professional life with even a casual weed habit, American stoners have a delicate line to walk. Despite being recreationally legal in nine states and medicinally legal in 29, the federal ban on marijuana consumption means employers across the country have the right to refuse or terminate the employment of anyone who fails a drug test for THC.
But do they actually, like, work? This is a question even the most diligent Googler is wont to find. As it stands, all the available information on these detox drinks seems to be either an obvious paid promotion for one brand or another, or come from anons with usernames like Stoner4Lyfe420 on eight-year old marijuana message board threads.
From the Stinger Detox to the Detoxify Xxtraclean Herbal Cleanse & Rescue Detox, we tested these detox drinks that say they’ll help you pass a urine test.
If Qcarbo32 is your only option, then the conclusion of my Qcarbo32 review has to be to make sure you detox for many days as possible before using it and drink it on an empty stomach.
It has a poor reputation online amongst those who know, and those who have used it. To me, it’s not a strong enough formula, especially when compared to the latest product from the same company, Ultra Eliminex, which has a far better track record.
Only if none of those options available would I go for Qcarbo32. It’s better than nothing, and you could get lucky if you have light toxin exposure, as it can flush out your system and maintain the balance you pass a drug test. But it is far more of a gamble than with the superior detox drinks on the market.
Another Herbal Cleanse product, a newer detox drink called Ultra Eliminex, with a vastly updated a more powerful formula, is now one of the most potent detox drinks on the market. However, it’s often as much as twice the price as Qcarbo32, retailing at around $80.
I have tested it at home though. I picked up a bottle in Walmart, and I didn’t smoke for 48 hours. I then followed the instructions and did a home drug test kit. I failed. So for me, it didn’t work.
The second one I’ll point you to is Mega Clean. It’s also available in Walmart, but I wouldn’t buy it from there because it’s not much better than Qcarbo32 on its own.
So I can’t really recommend Qcarbo32 to you. It might work for you, but it might not. If you buy two bottles then it might be strong enough flush out your system. But then you’re paying more than for any other detox drink out there, and for me, there are better options that cost less money than that.
The second top tip from me is always making sure you have a second detox drink handy in case the first one hasn’t worked properly, or to get your hands on synthetic urine so that you have something else to submit if you cannot get your urine clean using Qcarbo32 detox drink.
So how good is Qcarbo32 detox for flushing out the toxins and then maintaining the balance of your urine, so that you can pass a drug test?
This Qcarbo32 review is going to explain everything you need to know about this very widely available brand of detox drink. It's well marketed, but is it any good?One of the big problems with any detox drink is people don't understand what they actually achieve. It's a complete fallacy that they permanently detox your body. They don't magically flush out drug toxins from every area of your body leaving you clean
