How long does CBD stay in your body?

CBD Dosage

CBD may last between 2 and 6 hours in your body before it is eliminated. In a number of studies carried out, the test results have shown that CBD may be detected in blood tests days or even months after consumption.

The timeframe may vary depending on a number of factors, including frequency of usage, body type, CBD administration methods, types of CBD products you are consuming including broad or full-spectrum CBD, and types of tests which are being carried out.

Like most other substances, the amount of CBD consumed by an individual affects how long it stays in your body. The higher the dosage ingested, the longer CBD will remain in your body.

Frequency of Usage

When it comes to how often you consume CBD, this will dictate how long the CBD will remain in your system. If it is consumed on a regular basis, the CBD molecules will build up in your system over time. The opposite will happen if you take it in on a casual basis, the CBD will be removed from your system. We recommend that you are patient with the results as your body might take at least a week or two of constant consumption (2-3 drops a day, 2-3 times a day). 

Body Type

No person has the same body type, and as such CBD can have different effects on different people. BMI (Body Mass Index) is the most significant factor that affects how CBD behaves in your body. If your body type has a high BMI, it will take longer to digest the CBD as this is classed as fat-soluble and as a result, it is stored in your body's fat cells, not your water cells. On the other hand, if you are a young individual with a high metabolism rate, CBD may be released from your system much quicker than it would for an older individual. 

Administration Methods

There is a limited number of ways in which you may administer a CBD-based product. These can have a massive impact on the speed at which your body may retain or eliminate the CBD molecules from your body. CBD Oil is taken orally or placed under the tongue in order to be absorbed into your bloodstream quicker. CBD Capsules on the other hand are mostly swallowed and therefore take longer to be digested and absorbed into your system thus causing a delayed effect.

Full-Spectrum CBD and Broad-Spectrum CBD

Oxocan offers a range of Full-Spectrum CBD products including CBD Oils and CBD Capsules. Full-Spectrum simply means that the product contains all the natural compounds extracted from the plant including a very low dose of THC. In the UK the THC levels should be below 0.2%. All of Oxocan's products are guaranteed within these levels. The independent lab reports are made available for each product under the "Independent Lab Reports" page on the company's website. Broad-Spectrumgoes through the same extraction process, however in this case additional steps are taken to remove the THC from the product. Oxocan believes that when this process takes place, many of the naturally occurring compounds, including terpenes which are found in the plant are completely removed from the final product, hence the company decided to offer its consumers the full-spectrum option.

Types of Tests 

There is a number of tests that your boss or company may require from you if you are starting a new job or as part of a random drug test. The first might be a blood test, which in most cases it is not required due to the cost associated with it and the second is less costly and that is a urine test.  In most cases, your boss will not be interested if you are taking a legal supplement such as CBD, as long the THC levels are within the legal boundaries of the jurisdiction you're operating within. Generally speaking, if you have consumed any CBD product 2-3 hours before a urine test, this might show as a positive test result, however, if you used CBD 24hrs or more before a test, it is very likely that the results will be negative.
