High THC Levels?: The best way to "lower" a high thc level, is to stop taking in thc. Then stay away from it afterwards too. Your body will process it and it will go. Depending on how long & how frequently you have been using, it may take months for it to be gone from the fat in your body.

THC: Stop ingesting / inhaling it. The thc level will lower over time.

The hard truth: THC attaches to fat cells in your body and disperses among this wide tissue reserve. It leaks out into your blood over time and is eventually removed from your body. If your intake has been chronic or high volume the process will take longer than with a simple one time exposure. If you quit, the process can start. There are no "flushing agents" that you may read about.
