How Long Does CBD Last?

How Long Does CBD Last?

There's no easy, straightforward answer to this because there are so many forctors that determine how your body processes CBD. There are two main factors that control most of your results.

What Kind of CBD Product You Use

CBD has been manufactured into a wide array of products including, oils, food, capsules, lotions, and more. Each product is created differently but are able to produce the same benefits because of their CBD content. Howevever, our body absorbs each one at a different rate depending on how it is used. CBD oils put under your tongue will be absorbed and into the bloodstream in 10-15 minutes. CBD capsules and edibles need to go through the digestive system before being absorbed so they can take around 45 minutes to take effect.

How Much of A Dose You Take

How much CBD is in the product, or it's potency is another factor. Almost all CBD products have different potencies available. As is common for most products you take, the higher the potency, the more likely it is to stay in the body longer. To decide on what dose is right for you will depend mainly on your weight, age, gender, wellness needs, and tolerance. Always start low and work from there.

So How Long Does CBD Last?

You will be able to feel the effects or benefits of CBD for, on average, 5-6 hours after it has entered your endocannabinoid system. After introduction into your system the amount of CBD will gradually start to drop so the full effects are generally felt more in the first couple hours.


Chemically, How Long Does CBD Stay in Your System?

There is no standard formula to test if or how much CBD is in your system. Be aware that some CBD does contain THC and that can show up on a drug test. Similar to other medications, even though you don't feel the effects, CBD remains in your system. This is also why you could fail a drug test if your CBD product contains less than .3% of THC. You didn't feel the psychoactive effects but it is still there.

Based on many studies, small doses can be in your body for up to 2 days. Higher doses tend to remain in your body for up to 10 days. Each person, dosage, and product will vary the results.


CBD and Drug Tests

CBD has been removed from the drug list making it legal nationwide. It is entirely safe and does not cause any psychoactive effects so drug tests do not check for CBD. They do however check for THC. If you are worried about having to take a drug test, make sure the products you are using contain no THC. Even if the product contains less than .3% THC and you don't feel high, the compound is still in your body and could show up on a test.
