CBD can stay in your system for anywhere between one to five days, but it’s different for everyone. It all depends on how your body processes it. Meanwhile, the effects will last for a much shorter amount of time – typically around four to six hours.

With this in mind, in this article, we break down:

  • The factors that affect how long CBD stays in your system
  • How long it takes to feel the effects of CBD
  • Whether CBD will show up in a drug test


If you’re already familiar with CBD, you’ll know there are various products to try. You have fast-acting CBD oils, pre-measured CBD edibles, and skin-nourishing CBD topicals – to name just a few. But what if we told you that each of these blends are processed by your body differently? They are, and the process has a direct impact on how long CBD stays in your system.

In fact, it’s not just the method that has an effect; there are a host of reasons why CBD might linger for longer, or take a little while to absorb into your system. Here, we reveal the timings you need to know, and what they could mean for your daily dosage, so you can make sure you’re taking CBD at the right time for you.
