As you can see, the time that CBD remains in the body will vary from one person to another. Scientists are still trying to understand the average lifespan of this cannabinoid. In fact, new research out of Drake University suggested that a one-time moderate dose of CBD may have a half-life of one to two days.
These findings would have to be multiplied depending on the amount of CBD you take. People who consume CBD daily may need to wait several weeks for all of the CBD to get flushed out.
Important to remember that CBD molecules can attach to fat cells in your body every time they are used. CBD molecules will take longer to break down the more you use them.
Although the Drake University research is still preliminary, it’s important to keep this in mind when looking at CBD’s long-term effects.
