Cannabidiol or CBD products are found to be helpful in relieving many body ailments. So if you are a new user or planning to use CBD for any health benefits, this article might help you. In this article, we are explaining the duration for which CBD stays in your body system.
All cannabinoids including CBD present in the hemp plant are lipophilic substances. Lipophilic means that they cannot be metabolized by water. The fat tissues in our body are responsible for breaking down the cannabinoids.
The time required For the effects to wear off depends upon the type of CBD consumption method you are using. Also, it takes more than a month for your body to completely get rid of CBD.
Scientists have discovered that cannabinoids target the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in our body to provide health benefits. The cannabinoid CBD along with CBN and CBG can reduce restlessness, anxiety, inflammation, etc.
The brain provides impulses and different parts of our body respond to these calls; that’s how our body works. For example, if your body is running low on water, the brain initiates the feeling of thirst, and you drink water to satisfy your thirst. The ECS also works in a similar way.
When your body needs relaxation, the brain initiates the production of endocannabinoids. These chemicals can help in reducing anxiety, reducing inflammation, and can even metabolize free radicals. After the required time, the brain release enzymes that can stop the production of endocannabinoids.
This is where CBD plays its role. CBD inhibits the production of enzymes that stops the production of endocannabinoids. The result is that the endocannabinoids will remain in your bloodstream for a longer period and you can enjoy the pleasant benefits of endocannabinoids for a longer duration.
Each person experiences the effects of CBD for different durations. It highly depends on how your body reacts to CBD. Experts can provide you with some estimates, but they may not be pitch-perfect.
Another important factor that affects the duration of CBD effects is the type of CBD intake method that you use. If you are using CBD vapes, the effects kick in quickly but it wears off in about 2 hours. If you are using a CBD edible, the effects may last for about 5 hours. Keep in mind that if you use a CBD edible on an empty stomach, the effects will wear off more quickly than expected.
