CBD usually stays in the body for 2-5 days, but this interval does not apply to everyone. For some, CBD can stay in their system for weeks. The second quickest way to reap the benefits of cannabidiol is to take a CBD tincture sublingually (under the tongue) using a spray bottle or dropper. When using CBD sublingually, you may begin to experience an onset of effects 30 to 90 minutes after ingestion.
These effects usually last for four to six hours. The non-toxic compound CBD is known to have a number of beneficial effects, such as reducing pain and inflammation, and relieving anxiety. A single dose of CBD can continue to work for several hours, and the cannabinoid can persist in the body for days or weeks. The duration of CBD's effects depends on several factors, such as the user's metabolism and whether they use CBD regularly.
Some people want the combined effects of THC and CBD to treat their symptoms and prefer high-CBD strains of marijuana, while others who just want to enjoy non-psychoactive CBD prefer high-CBD hemp oil. Whether smoking a high-CBD strain or extracting it from a CBD vaporiser, inhalation is often considered an effective method of CBD administration due to the speed at which it is absorbed into the body. The next best way to consume CBD is by using CBD oils and tinctures, followed by ingested products, and finally topicals. CBD capsules, CBD gummies and CBD edibles have to pass through the digestive system before they are fully absorbed.
While there is the option of CBD flower, which can be smoked or vaporised at various medical marijuana dispensaries, most people who use CBD prefer products made with CBD oil. One way to avoid taking CBD oil with food is to use a CBD tincture sublingually, which allows CBD to bypass the digestive system and enter the bloodstream through the mucous membranes of the mouth. The half-life of inhaled or smoked CBD in the blood plasma is much shorter than that of ingested CBD, only a few hours. The highest bioavailability (the amount that is absorbed and enters the bloodstream) comes from inhaled or smoked CBD, while CBD oil tinctures applied sublingually (under the tongue) come second.
The effects of CBD usually wear off within a few hours, but this depends on the amount of CBD taken, the method used, and the size, metabolism and consumption history of the user. Research showing how long CBD is detectable in urine is scarce, but one study showed that a single test subject kept detectable CBD in his urine for only 24 hours.
