Can you please tell me if golden seal can be used to mask cannabis in a urine test? Can you tell me how much to take and how long for results?

I don’t know that goldenseal will mask the presence of cannabis in the system. High doses or long term usage of Goldenseal can cause damage to the stomach and intestines.

For information on detoxification, please see our website at, and then go to the "Q&A" area and search for "Herbs for Detoxification".

Because the half-life of cannabis is 15 days, it normally takes 30 days to flush the drug from the system. This time will vary according to the amount of the drug used, length of time used and the user’s metabolism.
