The popularity of CBD is increasing daily because of its potential health benefits. Its increasing use raises many questions among people. Most common doubt regarding the use of CBD is the duration of its effect on the body.
The effects of CBD are different in each person. So it is difficult to tell the exact duration of the effects of CBD on human body.
Factors Determining the Duration of the Effects of CBD
There are many factors that determine the duration of the effects of CBD in your body; such as amount of CBD consuming, method of consuming CBD, concentration of CBD, body weight of the user, frequency of usage, etc.
Dosage: If you take in more amount of CBD it will take more time for the body to process it and those effects will last longer. If you are taking 1.35 milligrams of CBD its effect will last up to 6 hours.
Methods of consuming: CBD can be introduced into our system in a number of ways. Vaping, eating, topical application, sublingual drops are some of the common method of ingestion of CBD. During vaping, CBD takes effect in the body quickly but its effects won’t last long. Sublingual drops take effect slowly. But its effects last of a longer time.
Since the digestive process in your body is very slow, the edible CBD products like gummies and capsules stay in your system for almost 5 to 6 hours. Topically applied CBD takes longer time to enter into the bloodstream. Hence it also last longer in your body.
Frequency of usage: For people who use CBD once in a while, the cannabinoid remains in the body for almost 3 days. For moderate users, CBD lasts in the system for 3 to 5 days. For frequent users, the compound may remain in the body for almost 10 to 15 days.
Body weight: Body mass index have a role to play in the duration of effects of CBD in the body. CBD is stored in the fat cells of your body. For people who exercise regularly, fat metabolism is faster and CBD storage will be low. Thus CBD stays for a shorter time in their body. For people with higher body mass index, the density of fat cells is higher and CBD will stay longer in their body.
Will the Use of CBD Products Fails You in a Drug Test?
For most of the people, it is a question of serious concern. The simple answer for that question is no. The amount of THC in CBD products is less than 0.3 %, which is the recommended allowance. As long as the amount of THC is less than 0.3 %, you will not fail in a drug test.
