How I passed a Hair Follicle Drug Test for a Fortune 10 Company for less than $20 Bucks

Hey Folks, be sure to check out my other great post on simple and easy ways you can Save Money at home right now, Meditation, and More!

There are millions of people who consume Marijuana and lead active, highly successful lifestyles. I believe that Marijuana has a wide range of benefits- be it recreational or medicinal -without the the harmful side effects of things like Alcohol or Opioids (morphene, codeine, Oxycontin, Percocet). It’s also much more affordable. Unlike pharmaceuticals it’s unprocessed and 100% natural.

I also believe that like any other substance, Marijuana must be consumed responsibly and in moderation. 

Back to the story of how I passed the hair follicle drug test… I got an offer to work in an IT department as an intern for a large corporation in the American Automotive Industry. This offer wasn’t appealing because I wanted to do engineering work and not IT work. The pay also wan’t very appealing, after expenses I was going to net about $2000 dollars for the summer. About two months before the start date, they mailed me paperwork to provide a hair sample for drug test analysis. I had only 72 hours to do the test, and I had smoked frequently in the past few months. Stunned and surprised (and perhaps a little stoned at the time) I began my research for how to beat the test. I figured the risk was worth it because the hair follicle test can detect usage within the last three months, which meant I would definitely fail. Luckily I knew a chemical engineer in college, so I brought in his sage advice from what I learned. We figured out a way to beat the test for less than $20! I am so confident in this method that I had to share my success story! I hope it benefits you as much as it did me!

How the Hair Follicle Test works:

In laymans terms, they essentially take a sample of hair from your body to use to test for drugs. It’s called the hair follicle test because the hair follicle acts like a filter for the blood. Trace amounts of various chemicals will enter the follicle  and become infused into the Keratin (the structural protein that makes up your hair) as your hair grows.

They don’t actually need your hair follicle, so they just take a cut length of your hair very close to the scalp. Usually, at least an inch. If your bald, they will use armpit hair, leg hair, chest hair, and if all else has failed public hair. They then mail it off to the lab where it is tested.

The chemists who perform the test more or less put your hair sample in a solution that washes out all of the chemicals in your hair. Then they test that solution for various concentrations of substances like THC, Amphetamines, Alcohol, and more!

How to pass the test- The Macujo Method + some extra steps:

The Macujo method is essentially the home version of washing the chemicals out of your hair like they do in the lab, except you wont be testing the solution afterwards. I recommend you also shave all other body hair in case they insist on not taking it from your scalp. This method is not a good idea if you have a very sensitive scalp, as it will be irritating!

The main idea behind this method is to both wash the hair and cleanse the cuticles of all waste products, most primarily THC.

I did this process three times because I had both the time and supplies.

You will need (<$20):

  1. Shower Cap  ~$3
  2. White House White Distilled Vinegar 64oz -~$4
  3. Clean and Clear Astringent (Step 2) ~$4
  4. aloe rid nexxus old formula  I used Baking Soda instead. It does the same thing, and is WAY cheaper ~$1
  5. Tide Liqud Laundry Detergent ~$5 – Grab a small one, as that’s all you will need

Application Process:

Be careful not to get any of these substances in your eyes/ears/mouth as they WILL hurt you. Call a medical professional immediately if you do for help. On your skin and scalp, you will be fine unless you are already very sensitive.

  1. Shave all hair on your legs/chest/pits/groin.  This precautionary so you will only need to apply the method to your scalp. Odds are in your favor if you skip this step with a full head of hair.
  2. Wet your hair with warm water over the kitchen or bathroom sink.
  3. Apply and massage Vinegar into your scalp for a few minutes (1-2 cups)
  4. Apply and massage Clean and Clear with the Vinegar for a few more minutes. (1-2 oz)
  5. Using the shower cap, let this mixture stand in your hair for a about an hour.
  6. Take a shower and use Baking Soda  (you can mix it with a small amount of shampoo) in your hair. Mix it well, and let it stand for a few minutes before rinsing.
  7. In the shower, apply Tide Liquid Laundry Detergent to your hair, massage it well and rinse it out.
  8. Do the baking soda one more time, it helps your head heal and keeps your hair soft in addition to being an excellent natural cleanser.

Again, I repeated this process every morning before the test. I did see some people online mention they only did the process once and it worked for them, but I had plenty of product and time to work with so I did it multiple times to be safe.

How to save money on auto insurance with this easy trick!

This simple trick could help you save hundreds of dollars per year!

Most people pay month to month for their auto insurance. You probably do as well… you probably didn’t even know you had another option.

Most car insurance companies will also let you pay your entire insurance bill at a steep 20-30% discount if you do it all at once and not month to month. They don’t advertise this because the can make considerably more when you pay month to month.

That means if you pay $140 a month, you could easily be paying $110 a month instead. That’s another $360 dollars in your pocket you can put to work making money for you.

In my mind, every dollar saved is a dollar earned. Especially for things like auto insurance which your required to carry if you drive on public roads. The above example is for my auto insurance.

It’s good to note that not all car insurance companies do this- but it’s a common practice and you should check with your insurer to see if you could be saving money.

The 6 Habits of Lucky People

My grandfather was one of those people who just seemed naturally lucky. In the 1970s and ‘80s, he regularly won prizes like cash, a trip to Brazil, and free food. He also always seems to get the best jobs or always be in the right place at the right time.
Was he truly lucky in the metaphysical sense? Probably not. Luck is about as real as you believe it to be. His lifelong winning streak was more likely the result of his habits. I have found that “lucky” people generally have some specific personality traits that also make them highly effective go-getters.

How much do you spend on Coffee?

Do you know how much you spend per week on coffee?  There is calculator at the bottom of the article. Let me know in the comments if you find this interesting!

For many people who live and work in the city coffee is a way of life. The case is especially true for Seattle- where Starbucks Coffee originates.

Coffee is a brewed drink prepared from roasted coffee beans, which are the seeds of berries from the Coffee plant. Coffee originates in Africa- but is now grown over 70 countries worldwide because of how popular it is. It’s one of the fastest growing multi billion dollar industries in the world and one of the most in demand commodities. I’ll get back to this point and why it matters in a minute.

The coffee craze is driven in part by the fact that people need an extra kick to get them through the day- which I understand completely. I’ve drunken my fair share off coffee and there were times when I was younger I briefly followed the growing Starbucks army.

I would have 2-3 cups of coffee per day. Easily coming to $10 dollars depending on what I would get where. 5 days a week- 50 weeks a year…

I was spending easily $2500 dollars a year on coffee! THROWING IT AWAY.

As soon as I realized this I knew I had to correct my course of action. At the time that was a sizeable amount of income. Now this blog and other projects of mine would cover that cost passively ;). I’m still going to save the money and consider it a double savings for not having spent it.

I had many options in front of me- the most obvious one at the time was to buy a Mr. Coffee and cheap grounds to make at home. However I then learned that some countries will add various things- including ground corn and dirt to ground coffee during coffee shortages (largely brought on by my point above…)

The next logical step was to buy whole beans and grind them myself. I didn’t mind making the one time cost into a high quality grinder– however the reoccurring cost of fresh beans was still kind of high when I compared it to the cheaper ground coffee. So I ultimately decided to cut coffee out of my regular day to day life and I think that was the best decision for me. I could of also reduced my intake but I figured it may be nice to try going without coffee for a while.

However if you still want to drink coffee- buying the beans your self and grinding them at home will absolutely cut your costs down by a factor of 90%. For me, that would mean I’d spend about $250 a year- which is far more manageable. However it also involves much more effort for which my time has been sparse. So I decided to pocket the rest of the money and save the time as well.

It actually wasn’t to hard for me to stop drinking coffee cold turkey- but a lot of people do experience withdrawals and get caffeine headaches. So for some it may be a good idea to slowly reduce your consumption first.

Apartment Garden Update

My garden is really starting to come together. Officially, my apartment garden consists of these types of plants (with links to the exact seeds I am using):

  1. Spinach
  2. Beefsteak Tomato
  3. Strawberries
  4. Goji berries
  5. Green Peppers

Spinach is strong and hearty, so I started it outdoors. After about four weeks half of my seedlings have developed into healthy plants. Today I filled in the gaps with new spinach seeds.

As for the rest of my plants, it’s still yet to cold outside for them to sprout so I have started them indoors. In about 4-6 weeks I will start to condition them to the outdoor climate and then move them outside for the summer.

As you can see, I actually have multiple plants sharing some space in the planters above. I was afraid some seeds might of been ‘duds’ so I planted multiple seeds to minimize my risk of needing to replant (I did not do so with the spinach and I clearly should have! XP). However, my seeds were too good and it backfired. As a result, as they grow I am slowly removing the smaller plants. This way the largest and strongest will have more resources. I have already removed about 4 goji plants and 10 strawberry plants.

I am using a local soil blend mix- and not that miracle grow potting mix stuff. NPK of 10-20-10.

All in all, I was surprised with how well the plants have started so far. I am hoping to have a nice summer harvest of fruit and greens!
