How Long Does CBD Stay in Your System

CBD is a compound derived from hemp plants that can contain trace amounts of another compound known as THC. The two compounds are closely related hemp-derived cousins however, only one of them will reveal themselves if you have to submit a drug test. For people concerned about how long CBD stays in their system for employment or other purposes there are a few things you should know. Here is a brief introduction to the non-psychoactive compound known as CBD, or cannabidiol. Unlike THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol, CBD will not be tested for on most drug tests but you may want to know for other reasons just how much is lingering inside your body.

While there is no way to know for sure just how much CBD or THC is inside your body, a simple test can give you an idea. Knowing your body, your routine and how much CBD you consume can also help you keep the levels where you feel comfortable.

How Long Does CBD Stay in Your System?One thing that many people do not realize about one of Mother Nature’s favorite medicinal compounds is that CBD is fat soluble. This means that not only do CBD compounds need to be extracted into fats (oils, butter, tinctures) but they also will accumulate inside the body. Because CBD is a fat-soluble compound it also builds up inside of your cells. Additionally, CBD is generally known to take longer than other phytochemicals to eliminate from the body because it is stored in fatty tissue.

In contrast, other compounds like Vitamin B are water soluble meaning that they are removed from the body every day. CBD is distributed into fatty tissues and also stored in the cannabinoid receptors inside the central nervous system. For this reason, you will find CBD can have binding effects, unlike other natural compounds. Generally, 1-2 weeks is needed to cleanse the body of CBD residue but it could take longer.

Depending on how much you exercise, the type of diet you follow, and how regularly you use QUANTA CBD products, it could take up to 4 weeks to eliminate all traces of lingering CBD. Remember, that your body naturally produces CBD and also has many receptors set up to hold more. So, everyone will be able to store a different amount inside their bodies without much meaningful effect. (1)

Does CBD Muscle Rub Absorb into My Body?QUANTA CBD Muscle Rub is very popular with athletes along with people suffering from sore, aching muscles because it is able to penetrate the epidermis. At the top layer of your skin (the epidermis), the muscle rub goes to work offering all types of benefits including pain relief, acne reduction, antioxidant protection, and even insect repellent effects.

Topical application of QUANTA CBD does not allow the ingredients to seep into your bloodstream but it does permeate the skin. On your skin, the polarized CBD molecules then bind to cannabinoid receptors. There, the CBD compounds go to work with nearby cannabinoid receptors through the pores offering the many benefits of topical CBD.

How Much QUANTA CBD Should I Use?Your everyday health regimen can include a QUANTA CBD vaporizer as well as a topical muscle rub. Regardless of how you want to use CBD in your morning routine, in the gym, at home, in the car or wherever else you use QUANTA CBD, talking to your doctor can help. Discuss the ways you use QUANTA with your healthcare provider in order to develop a plan that targets your health concerns. Then you can also get dosage recommendations for your health plan with CBD.

Will CBD Show Up on a Drug Test?CBD will not show up on a drug test because it is not illegal in the United States. However, the hemp plant that CBD is derived from also produces small amounts of THC. Thus, hemp-derived products can contain up to .3% of THC even though the compound is responsible for psychedelic effects attributed to cannabis. The most notable difference between these two popular cannabinoids is that one will show up on a drug test while the other will not. So, take note:

  • CBD will NOT show up on a drug test
  • THC will show up on a drug test

If you are concerned about trace amounts of THC from hemp plants found in QUANTA CBD products, aim to discontinue use about 1 week before any drug test. This should clean out any lingering trace amounts of THC compounds found in the hemp-derived vape pens.
