How Long Does CBD Stay In Your System?
The usage of CBD in the recent years has seen an upward trend with many users claiming its effectiveness in addressing many conditions, including but not limited to Cancer, Alzheimer’s, Epilepsy, Anxiety, Multiple sclerosis, Depression, etc.
Yet, there are people reluctant to jump on this miracle drug’s bandwagon. Part of the unwillingness comes from the question:
How long does CBD stay in your system?
The Short Answer
The first thing that you need to understand is that there is no definitive answer. Why? Because everyone’s body reacts differently to CBD usage. There are many factors to consider such as metabolism, age, weight and gender.
Other factors that come into play are: How potent is that strain? What amount are you using and your method of consumption. Do you vape? Do you rub it on your skin? Do you ingest it?
Things to Consider
Before we venture any further, it is important to note that CBD may not necessarily be legal to purchase for everyone, as of yet. The medical and recreational use of marijuana will be fully legalized in Canada from 17th October, 2018.
A cause of concern for many is the intoxicating effects that CBD may or may not have. Recent studies have shown that although there may be traces of THC found in your body, overall CBD itself is not responsible for causing a feeling of intoxication or inducing a “high”.
Past studies conducted on 14 subjects who took high doses of CBD for 6 weeks reveals that one week after stopping the intake of heavy CBD doses (700 mg), the CBD levels dropped down to just 1.5 ng/ml. If your usage is limited, there is no need to worry; it will be out of your body in less than a week.
As far as CBD detection in your saliva goes, it only offers pharmaceutical evidence anywhere from 1 hour to a day.
In your urine, a heavy intake may take a couple of weeks to dissipate. That being said, the information stored in your hair is a different story. Our hair can keep a pharmacological track of nearly everything we have consumed in our life.
This should be no cause for concern as most of the hair tests only take a look at the last inch and a half, which keeps a record of the past 90 days of our life.
Many CBD users will be concerned regarding how long it will be present in their body. This worry arises primarily from those who do not wish to test positive for any form of cannabinoids during drug test, because they do not possess a medical marijuana card or permit.
This shouldn’t be a cause for concern as most drug tests are done to find traces of THC rather than CBD. Even if you have taken heavy doses of CBD, it should be out of your bloodstream in about a week’s time, giving you no reason to worry.
