CBD component in CBD oil stands for ‘cannabidiol’, which is acquired from the Cannabis plant family, i.e. hemp and marijuana.
How long does CBD stay in your system?
It usually takes 20-30 minutes for CBD to affect our body. However, how long does CBD last will depend on factors like dosage and method of consumption?
How much do you use?
A higher dose will last longer in your body than a smaller dose. It can range from approximately 1-2 days to even 4 days.
Frequency of usage:
How often you use CBD will also determine the amount of time it stays in your system. Frequent use of CBD will build up the presence in your body, hence it is recommended to have a gap between usage in the initial days of usage to gauge how long CBD lasts. With occasional usage, CBD will last less than for frequent users.
BMI and Metabolism:
Your body’s BMI (Body Mass Index) will also affect CBD’s duration in your system.
While metabolism during consumption will also affect how long CBD lasts. The absorption of CDC will be delayed if your body is metabolizing the food it ate recently.
Another factor determining the duration of CBD lasting in your body is the body’s water content.
Method of CBD consumption:
CBD is readily available in a plethora of forms including oils, vape, edibles, lotions, and creams, tablets or capsules, etc.
While being the easiest and convenient way of consumption of CBD, taking CBD orally is not the most efficient. This way requires the CBD to be broken down by the digestive system before it can enter the bloodstream and target our cannabinoid receptors.
This process is one of the most efficient ways of CBD absorption by our body. On inhaling CBD, it is directly absorbed into the bloodstream through our lungs and hence the cannabinoids are circulated.
CBD Oil’s absorption into the bloodstream via the mucous membrane and dermal layer is another convenient and efficient way of getting CBD in your system.
How long do its effects last?
While oral consumption of CBD lasts for several hours depending on metabolism rate, both CBD oil and inhalation lasts up to a couple of hours. However, all of the duration of CBD’s effect in your body is completely dependent on the dosage of use and tolerances.
In most average cases, the effects of CBD oil can last up to a couple of hours.
