    Hey what’s up guys? Nice site you have here!



    I am looking for the best chemical/compound to destroy THC so it won't show up
    on one of those super sensitive drug wipes.




    The drug wipes are wiped on surfaces, in baggies or on substances
    then you send the wipe back to the company and they do a chemical analysis to find
    all the drugs on it.




    </span>I was thinking 1 liter of concentrated
    sulfuric acid (60-80%) would destroy the THC in say 25 grams of marijuana well. However I figured that sulfuric
    acid would only remove the "hydro" from THC and leave the cannabinol
    intact, which would be detected on the wipe (they say they can detect THC and all
    cannabinols)



    Is there any compound or chemical that would destroy cannabinols in general?


    Thanks for you ideas guys! [​IMG]

    The wipes are retarded. You'll show up on one of those just by borrowing a pen from somebody at school who smokes weed. They're completely unreliable.

    And they're breaking the law aswell, since it's illegal to send cannabis material through the mail. Tell this to whoever want's to do this test on you.

    Yeah I know! They are way too sensitive, they will even find the
    cocaine on average money. But I would be doing this in the lab
    and it wouldn't get contaminated. Anyways, I would be the one
    using the wipe and sending it in, it for an experiment.



    Well the whole sending weed through the mail thing, the US government
    sends cocaine tained money through the reserves and banks everyday,
    knowingly. I really doubt the PO cares about trace ammounts of THC
    going through the mail.



    For my little experiment I could use a wipe or a police test kit to
    test, it's just that the wipes are cheaper and much more
    sensitive. It's more of a proof of concept kind of thing rather
    than the actual application for the wipes.

    I think the best way to remove THC from a surface is to oil it up. The THC solves in the oil. And after that's done, wash it down proper with soap.

    Then again, i'm not a chemist.
