Using Niacin to Pass a Drug Test

What is Niacin

Niacin is an organic compound that can be found in vitamin B3. A vitamin B3 that's made and used to turn food into energy by your body. Niacin is also known to flush out THC and other narcotics. As a result, it's commonly used to pass drug tests.

Why Niacin is a Myth

If you ask 50 people how to pass a drug test, more than likely, you will get 50 different answers.  One of the responses sure to show up is that niacin will help you pass a drug test.   It’s hard to say when this myth came about but it’s safe to say that it’s been around since drug testing started which was the 1970s. The fact is that this myth has been around for such a long time is surely worth investigating.  Niacin goes by many different names which including: B-3-50, B3-500-Gr, Endur-Acin, Niacor, Niacor B3, Niaspan, Nicolar, and Slo-Niacin which are brand names by different pharmaceutical companies.  However, it can also be purchased from any health food store.  The quality will be the same whether you get it from a doctor or a health food store.

Niacin is used with diet changes (restriction of cholesterol and fat intake) to reduce the amount of cholesterol and certain fatty substances in your blood. Niacin is also used to prevent and treat pellagra (niacin deficiency), a disease caused by inadequate diet and other medical problems. Niacin is a B-complex vitamin.  Niacin is referred to as vitamin B3 because it was the third of the B vitamins to be discovered. It has historically been referred to as "vitamin PP" or "vitamin P-P." 

Niacin’s popularity in helping a person pass a drug test most likely came about based on the theory of niacin’s effect on fatty tissue.  This and the well-known fact that marijuana toxins are stored in the fatty tissue causes the marijuana toxins to stay much longer in the body.   I once asked a physician who attended a NORML conference about this belief that Niacin helps a person pass a drug test and he just snickered and laughed and said, “In theory, it sounds good, but for it to have the desired effect in helping a person pass a drug test massive amounts of niacin would have to be ingested, and those amounts are not humanly possible.  In fact, too much niacin can be fatal.

Like many myths, it takes only one person to start the revolving door of misinformation.  A person takes niacin and takes their drug test, and to their amazement, their drug test comes back negative.  For some reason, the person attributes them passing their drug test is due to the magical effects of niacin.  So he tells the world about his newfound discovery and everyone else.  But in reality, there could be many reasons why the person tested negative.  It could be due to one of many factors such as:

  1. The person could test negative on their own, to begin with.
  2. The lab made a mistake.
  3. The sample was never tested.  (This is very common in probation situations as not all samples are tested).  

Whatever the reason was it WAS NOT due to niacin.  It was due to something unrelated to niacin.  

One of the side effects of taking niacin includes dermatological conditions such as skin flushing and itching, dry skin, and skin rashes including eczema exacerbation and acanthosis nigricans.  Some people who take it for passing a drug test firmly believe that skin flushing is helping them remove the toxins from their bodies. In fact, there is no scientific evidence that proves taking niacin can pass a drug test result. But according to the study, niacin is a potential way to prevent the detection of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), is a chemical compound responsible for marijuana's psychological effect.  It is just part of the myth that taking niacin will help you pass a drug test.

Now that we have talked about a myth that doesn’t work.  Let’s talk about a product that is specially formulated in helping you remove toxins from your body permanently and therefore help you pass a drug test.  The Toxin Rid Detox Programs are the best products available in helping you remove toxins from your body.  Unlike niacin, the Toxin Rid Detox Programs are proven effective over and over.  The program contains liquid, tablets, and a powder that are designed to remove the toxins from your fatty tissue, and thus the toxins are excreted either by urination or bowel movement.  You must get the right program for your toxin level.
