Yo, what’s good? It’s ya boy Dan, and today we’re gonna talk about something that’s been on my mind lately – edibles. You know, those weed-infused treats that keep you feeling high for hours on end. The thing is, edibles last way longer than smoking up, and the effects can be different for everyone. So, I did some research and put together this guide to help you figure out how long edibles stay in your system.
First of all, let’s talk about what edibles actually are. They can be anything from brownies to gummies to soups – you name it. People enjoy edibles for both medical and recreational purposes. Some people prefer them over smoking because they want to protect their lungs from those pesky carcinogens. Others just wanna chill and have a good time.
Now, when you eat an edible, it takes a bit longer to feel the effects since it has to go through your digestive system. Once it does, THC attaches to your fat cells and spreads throughout your body via your bloodstream. Your liver also gets a piece of the action during digestion – it breaks the THC down into something called 11-hydroxy THC, which is what makes you feel high.
So, how long does this all take? Well, it depends on a few factors. The dosage of THC in your edible, how often you use edibles, your metabolism, and your BMI all play a role in how long edibles stay in your system. If you’re a regular user, then THC could be hanging out in your fat cells for over a month. For occasional users, it could stick around for 2-12 days.
But wait – can edibles be detected on a drug test? Yeah, they sure can. In fact, THC from edibles can be detected in tests for even longer than smoking up. Urine tests can detect THC for up to 25 days after use! Saliva tests can detect it for up to 3 days, blood tests can detect it for up to 20 days, and hair follicle tests can detect it for up to 90 days.
So, what are some tips for passing a drug test if you’ve been indulging in edibles? Well, first of all – stop using them immediately if you want the slightest chance of passing. You can also eat antioxidant-rich foods like lemon or green tea to help flush out toxins faster. Drinking tons of water before the test and urinating frequently can also help dilute your urine enough to pass.
Now, I know what you’re thinking – are there any health risks associated with edibles? Of course there are! Consuming too much THC can cause cardiac events or hallucinations. Plus, the effects of edibles take longer to kick in than smoking up, so you might feel tired or unproductive all day.
At the end of the day though, as long as you use them responsibly and in moderation, cannabis edibles are a pretty safe way to get high. And with more states legalizing weed every year, it’s easier than ever to find quality edibles online or at your local dispensary.
So there you have it – everything you need to know about how long edibles stay in your system. Stay safe out there and happy snacking!
