Brief Answer:
Increase water intake and exercise heavily

Detailed Answer:
Hello thanks for asking from HCM

I can understand your concern. How many days has passed since your last intake?

Forced diuresis or increasing water intake and increasing the metabolism like by exercise help to increase the metabolism of marijuana in body. In most cases the metabolites remain in blood for about a week of last use but with metabolism the test will come negative. However in nails the metabolites can remain for up to 3 months.

Thanks and Take care
