There is no unambiguous answer to this question. All because The length of time cannabidiol remains in the body depends on a number of factors. Therefore, this time will vary from person to person. It depends on gender, body weight, metabolism or age and, of course, on the amount and concentration of cannabidiol taken. And even if all this is determined, every body is different and the effect, not only of CBD oils, ointments or dried CBD, but also of supplements or medicines, can vary quite significantly from person to person. Therefore, we will try to answer this question as precisely as possible below, but anyone who systematically takes hemp products should observe their body's reactions so that the benefits of taking cannabidiol are maximised.
What CBD is and how it works
CDB, or cannabidiol, is a natural extract derived from hemp (Cannabis Sativa), dissolved in vegetable oil, for example. It cannot contain more than 0.2% THC in its composition, making it legal and widely available in Poland.
In addition to the digestive, nervous or immune system, the human body has also discovered endocannabinoid system. It is responsible for maintaining homeostasis, or balance, in the human body. It plays a huge role in almost all physiological processes. It affects the psyche, appetite, weight, mood, sleep and many other processes.
Scientific research into the properties of cannabinoids is being conducted around the world, and the results are extremely promising. It is known that the use of CBD oils It supports the treatment of mental illnesses, relieves inflammation and pain, helps to combat stress and even depression, improves the quality of sleep and supports the functioning of the immune system. And these are not all the positive effects of cannabidiol.
It is therefore important to know how long the therapeutic effect of CBD oil on the body lasts. It is not possible to determine this unequivocally, but it can be approximated. This, together with careful observation of one's own organism, will enable the effective action of this beneficial oil.

- Amount of CBD delivered to the body - it is logical that the higher the dose taken, the longer the persistence of cannabidiol in the blood will be.
- Frequency of CBD oil intake - The frequency with which e.g. CBD oil is taken also determines how long the appropriate concentration of CDB will be in the bloodstream. It is known that taking it systematically prolongs the saturation period in the blood. One-off, it's presence for 2 to 5 days, after longer, systematic intake these days can be up to 10.
- Methods of taking CBD - Cannabidiol is commercially available in various forms. The most popular is of course CBD oilBut you can also buy CBD pastes, hemp ointments, dried hemp or teas. When we talk about ingestion methods, we also have in mind bioavailability, which, in simplest terms, means the degree and amount the body is able to absorb into the bloodstream, depending on the method. Cannabidiol delivered orally will last longest in the body, followed by the valorised one, and the shortest after the application of an ointment. But here is one important point. The oil taken orally should not be swallowed immediately, but applied under the tongue and held there for at least 2 minutes. The reason for this is its hydrophobicity, i.e. the repulsion of water, which results in its much weaker absorption in the gastrointestinal tract if swallowed straight away.
- Individual aptitude - People are different, their organisms and their ability to assimilate are also different. This is no different with CBD. The length of time cannabidiol lasts in the blood is influenced by weight, gender, but also metabolism, lifestyle or medication taken. For example, the blood saturation of a person weighing 100 kg and one weighing 50 kg will be different if they take the same dose of CBD, there seems to be no doubt here.
How long does CBD last
And here the answer is not simple and straightforward. Because here too, the length of CBD's effect depends on external factors. Including the method we choose to apply the cannabidiol. Vaporisation of dried CBD, i.e. the inhalation route, guarantees the fastest saturation of the blood with cannabidiol (first effects after 2-5 minutes), but the noticeable effect can last up to about 3 hours. On the other hand, applying CBD oil under the tongue means waiting 20-40 minutes for an effect, but the duration of action is already 4 to 6 hours. However, it is important to remember that the duration of effect also depends on the dose of cannabidiol taken.
