What Contributes to CBD Lasting Longer in Some Individuals Versus Others?
To start, many studies regarding CBD are still in their infancy, so there is no one size fits all when determining exactly how long CBD will stay in an individual’s system. However, below we list several factors that may explain why some individuals metabolize CBD faster than others. 

  • Dosage: The amount of CBD in the product you are taking will determine how long it stays in your system. A CBD product with a lower dose per serving won’t have the same blood level concentration as a higher dose, so the rate in which it’s metabolized will be quicker.  


  • Often You Use It: How often you use your CBD product will play a role in how long it stays in your system. Like any other medication, it takes time to build a therapeutic level and produce effects. 


  • Food: Taking CBD on an empty stomach will cause it to be metabolized faster than on a full stomach. Additionally, certain foods, particularly those rich in healthy fats, can increase the bioavailability of CBD.


  • Your Body: Your body composition, metabolism and genetic makeup are other factors that determine how long CBD will stay in your system. 

Route of Administration: CBD comes in many forms including tinctures, edibles, vapes, capsules and topicals. The route of administration you choose is solely based off of personal preference, however, each method has a different time frame in regard to onset and duration of effects. For example, sublingual or oral administration tend to have longer lasting effects than vaping or smoking.
