Although THC edibles can take a while to kick in, their effects are long-lasting.
Consuming THC edibles is the easiest and tastiest way to enjoy the psychoactive effects and wellness benefits of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Thanks to the Farm Bill of 2018, people across the country can now enjoy federally legal THC edibles.
With THC edibles being hugely popular nowadays, it’s important to have an understanding of how these product types actually work, and most importantly, how long their effects will last.
What are THC gummies?
THC gummies are fruity edibles that contain the cannabinoid THC. They’re infused with THC distillate, which is an extract of THC that is isolated from the hemp plant.
How long do THC gummies take to kick in?
Because THC edibles need to be broken down by your digestive system before they can interact with your endocannabinoid system, their bioavailability is reduced and it can take a while for you to feel their effects.
Normally, it takes between 30 minutes to 2 hours for you to feel the effects of a THC gummy. Exactly how long depends on factors like how much you’ve eaten recently, your weight and body composition, and the gummy’s potency.
If you’re looking for edibles that hit more quickly, try THC drinks. You’ll normally feel their effects around 10 to 15 minutes after consuming them.
Benefits of THC Gummies
THC edibles are popular because they provide a legal and convenient way to experience the distinctive physical and mental benefits of Delta-8 THC and Delta-9 THC. The gummies produce a more powerful body high than other methods of delivery, which is great if you want soothing effects that you can feel from head to toe.
How long do THC gummies last?
How long the effects of THC edibles will last can vary from person to person depending on factors like the amount taken and their body composition.
However, most agree that THC gummy effects can last for anywhere from 4-8 hours, with about 6 hours being considered standard. So before you take a THC edible, plan on being high for a big chunk of the day or night.
How long do THC gummies stay in your system?
Within about an hour, up to half of the THC in the gummy fully metabolizes. However, the cannabinoid does remain in your system for a while. If you’re a regular THC user, it can take up to six weeks before your body has metabolized all of the compound.
This is important to keep in mind if you face the prospect of a drug test. Even though hemp-derived THC edibles are legal, they will still cause you to fail a standard drug test.
How does the potency of a THC gummy affect your experience?
The more potent the THC edible, the longer its effects will last since it then takes longer to fully metabolize the THC. You can shorten or lengthen your THC experience by changing your edible dosage.
