420 with CNW — How Long Will Cannabis Edibles Remain in the Body?

Smoking cannabis flower is the most popular way to consume the popular drug. For decades, centuries even, it was the most common way of taking cannabis. However, there has been an increasing number of people, both regular users and newbies, who have been turning away from smoking to edibles in the past decade or two. This is partly because people are becoming more aware of the health risks attributed to smoking and are looking for healthier alternatives that will allow them to consume cannabis without endangering their health.

Edibles fill this niche quite nicely. In fact, cannabis-infused products have become so popular over the past couple of years that experts predict the global cannabis edibles market will be worth a whopping $11.8 billion by 2027. However, plenty of people don’t know much about cannabis-infused edibles and how they affect the body other than the fact that they are edible. This ignorance is often the difference between experiencing an enjoyable high or descending into an anxiety-ridden panic attack.

The main difference between eating edibles and smoking cannabis flower is that when you consume a cannabis edible, the cannabis stays in your system for much longer. When you smoke cannabis flower, the cannabinoids contained in the smoke are instantly absorbed into your blood by the vast network of blood vessels in your lungs. Edibles, on the other hand, have to go through a longer route before they reach your blood. As a result, a cannabis edible will remain in your body for much longer than cannabis flower, resulting in a more sustained high.

How does this work?

After you eat a cannabis-infused edible, its first stop will be the stomach. Here, digestive juices will break the edibles down and blood vessels along the stomach and digestive tract will absorb the THC within the edible. This THC, along with any other cannabinoids, will head to the liver where it is converted into 11-hyrdoxy THC before gradually entering general circulation over the next couple of hours. Since 11-hyrdoxy THC is more potent and psychoactive than regular THC, edibles tend to create an intense, long-lasting high.

How long will cannabis edibles remain in your body? The answer: it depends.

For most people, the effects take 30 minutes to two hours to kick in and can last for up to 12 hours, and you could still be feeling residual effects up to 24 hours later depending on the strain. Furthermore, it may take your body days to completely purge the cannabis. For regular uses, it can take up to 30 days for the cannabis to leave their systems.

Given that the effects of cannabis can vary from one individual to another, it is best to start with a low-potency product obtained from one of the many licensed companies such as Cannabis Strategic Ventures Inc. (OTC: NUGS) so that you are certain that you are consuming the best available products on the market.
