How Long Does CBD Take to Work?

CBD takes time to begin working. To achieve its benefits, it first needs to be absorbed into the bloodstream. Inside the bloodstream it’s distributed throughout the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) where the cannabinoid receptors in CBD can bond with the receptors in our body.

How long this process takes varies based on several key factors―the usage method, the quality and type of CBD, and your body’s weight, metabolic rate, and composition. Every single person is unique with different habits, behaviors, bodies, feelings, and so forth. So, there is no “exact” answer and even with the same person results may vary from one time to another.

In general, but not absolute determining factors:
⦁ Larger body requires larger dosage
⦁ Faster metabolism, faster results
⦁ High stress, slows absorption
⦁ Medication interaction may slow down or conflict

Your consumption method not only affects how much CBD reaches the bloodstream; it affects how quickly the CBD will get there. Less digestive functions to go through, means less time that it’ll take to reach the bloodstream.
