How long does CBD stay in your system?

by Edward J. Ross

CBD, also called cannabidiol is a therapeutic compound that exists in the cannabis plant. With the many scientific research and experiments carried out on cannabis, scientists have found new and exciting ways in which CBD and other cannabis-related substances can be used to improve the quality of its user's life.

Although CBD offers countless health benefits; from treating anxiety, insomnia, depression, chronic pain, to energizing and improving focus, there is still some stigma around the chemical compound and the people who indulge in it.

The stigma surrounding CBD and its counterparts is one of the major reasons why people are reluctant to try it, even though it will significantly improve their lives. Another reason which can explain why people shy away from this new-age medicine is that they fear that it might show up in a drug test.

Many countries in the world are yet to legalize the use of marijuana so it shouldn't be a surprise to find that one of the most CBD related searches on the internet is "how long does CBD stay in your system," nobody wants to be caught committing a crime.

What Is CBD?

If you have been wondering about what CBD means, how it works, where it's found, and if it will show up in your drug or urine tests; to get the answers to all your questions, it is best to research and learn about the compound.

CBD like THC is gotten from the same plant - cannabis, their differences lay in their psychedelic ability and the number of hours they spend in the body. After the 2018 Farm Bill was passed, the legalization of CBD products went a long way in encouraging scientists and health workers to do and in-depth research on how CBD interacts with the brain and body. Results from these tests showed that although CBD doesn't alter one's mental state like THC does, it still gets stored in the body.

CBD is short for cannabidiol, it is a chemical substance found in the resinous flower of the cannabis sativa plant; it is also known as marijuana or Mary-Jane. Marijuana is a naturally occurring plant, i.e it isn't artificially manufactured in a lab, there are several farms who grow and sell cannabis to companies who use hemp-derived CBD in its ingredient.

CBD has become the new miracle ingredient because of its therapeutic, anti-cancer, and neuroprotective properties. It is the most popular phytocannabinoid after tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) - the chemical in cannabis that is famous for its psychoactive effect on the brain and body. CBD has the opposite effect THC has, CBD interacts with different receptors in the brain which results in the creation of a calm and relaxing feeling which acts both in the brain and body.

Factors That Determine How Long CBD Stays In The Body

There are about 133 cannabinoids currently known in the world, each has specific effects that manifest in the endocannabinoid system. As mentioned earlier, CBD is a non-psychoactive substance so don't expect to get intoxicated by it, what you can expect from this chemical compound is a wide range of health and medical benefits.

The amount of time CBD stays in the body after consumption is determined by many factors. The average time this chemical stays in your system is two to five days; there are people to who this estimate does not apply; for some people, it takes weeks for all traces to leave their system. Factors like the method of consumption and amount of CBD consumed determines how you will feel the effects and how long the substance stays in your body. Below are some of these factors:

Diet

Your diet plays a significant role in the metabolism of cannabinoids in your body. Little food details like what you eat, the time you eat, and how much you eat contribute to the amount of time CBD will need to leave your system. For example, ingesting CBD after eating increases the amount of time CBD stays in you and consuming a CBD infused product on an empty stomach makes its metabolization and elimination faster.

Body Mass Index

Individual differences are one of the major characteristic of the human race. The reaction I would have to a particular event, drug, or person will differ from the reaction the person beside me might have; this phenomenon is also applicable in the case of CBD.

Your weight, rate of metabolism, and water content are a few of the several factors that can affect both the effect and time a CBD product stays in your body.

How Frequently You Use It

Like every other substance in the world, the more you use CBD, the higher your tolerance level for it increases. The number of times a user takes CBD determines if it will stay in his/her body for a long or short time. If you use CBD occasionally, its concentration in your blood is pretty low so it leaves your system quickly, but if you have a higher concentration it will take about five days for it to disappear from your system. If you have drug tests make sure you reduce your frequency of use.

Method of Usage

The effects experienced after using CBD and blood test results are all related to our method of consumption. There are several methods in which cannabidiol CBD is consumed. Some methods include:

  • Vaping method
  • edibles (for example CBD infused gummy bears)
  • oils and lotions
  • tinctures and creams
  • pills and capsules

Each of these methods influences the way our body reacts to CBD. with oils and tinctures, the chemical is absorbed directly into the bloodstream so it tends to take effect faster and last longer. With the vaping method, CBD goes into the lung and acts but also leaves the body faster. The use of vape pens for CBD is not advisable as there have been cases of vaping related deaths.

Dosage

The larger your CBD dosage is, the faster the cannabidol CBD take effect and the longer it also stays in your system.

CBD and Drug Tests

Most drug, blood and urine tests don't read CBD, but in a situation where your CBD has a high amounts of THC then your drug test result will come out positive. To prevent this from happening, you need to be cautious about the cannabis and CBD infused products and brands you patronize. Don't purchase or use products with high trace amounts of THC in them as THC is the chemical in marijuana that makes it a psychoactive substance.

The compositions and quality of ingredients also contribute to the strength or weakness of CBD in a product. Below is a breakdown of the different ways to quantify CBD in products:

  • CBD Isolate

CBD isolate is a type of cannabidiol that doesn't contain any THC; it is pure CBD. This type of CBD comes in a crystalline solid and powder form. It differs from the popular full-spectrum CBD in THC content; full-spectrum is legally allowed to have not more than 0.3% THC.

Several processes are carried out by manufacturers before CBD isolate is produced. The processes are carried out until all chemicals that aren't CBD are eliminated. CBD isolate is best for people who want to reap the benefits this cannabidiol has to offer (anxiety relief, pain relief, it also even functions as an anti-depressant) without having to experience any mind/state altering effect.

  • Broad Spectrum CBD

Unlike the CBD isolate, broad-spectrum CBD usually contains several compounds but no trace amounts of THC. Unfortunately, some CBD oil or general product manufacturers aren't so thorough with their extraction processes so trace quantities can be detected in a urine or drug test; this inherently means the CBD will stay in your system for a long time.

Cannabichromene(CBC), cannabinol (CBN), and myrcene, limonene, and pinene are the many compounds found within the this form of CBD. Due to its multiple compounds, this form of CBD has the ability to create the 'entourage effect'. The entourage effect is when all the compounds found in CBD products work together to produce the desired effects for the person using CBD.

  • Full-Spectrum CBD

If you use a full-spectrum CBD oil, you will notice that the entourage psychoactive effects will be stronger than the other forms of CBD which inherently means it will show up in drug tests. This difference is primarily because this type of CBD contains all the chemicals found in the cannabis plant. Although the full-spectrum CBD effects are stronger, its THC is by law not allowed to pass 0.3%.

Uses of CBD

Cbd's properties are used in many companies across the world. below are some of the uses of CBD:

  • Treating Epilepsy

experiments and research on the effects of CBD when used to control epileptic seizures have shown that CBD has the potential to function as an anti-seizures treatment. The effects of cannabinoid CBD stay in your system longer.

A study in 2017 showed that CBD has wonderful control of seizures for people with specific epilepsy syndrome, however, more evidence is needed before CBD products for epileptic patients will be released into the public.

  • Pain Management

There is proof that CBD and cannabis as a whole has the ability to be used for the treatment and management of chronic pain. Countless cbd products exist for the relief of fibromyalgia, cancer pain, arthritis pain, and neuropathic pain.

For pain relief, it is advisable to use products with high THC contents as THC has stronger analgesic tendencies and stay in your system longer.

  • Cancer

Although the pharmaceutical industry doesn't encourage or endorse the use of cbd products for cancer treatment, animal studies have shown that CBD oil, and other cbd peripherias reduces the rate at which cancer cells grow and multiply. The National Cancer Institute say that CBD oil reduces the side effects gotten during the treatment of cancer.

  • Anti-depressant

After the fact that the answer for how long does cbd stay in the body was three to five days, the next most popular benefit of CBD would be that it is an anti-depressants. CBD fixes depression and anxiety by changing the way our brains react to serotonin.
