How long do edibles last?

Most consumers are looking for reliable and easy to predict timing and guidelines for what to expect when it comes to the effects of edibles. Unfortunately, since every person reacts differently to varying amounts of THC and different strains, there are several factors at play that can heavily influence how intense of an experience and what kinds of sensations you might notice after consuming marijuana edibles. Though we can’t guarantee a specific length of time that a buzz might last for, understanding the process of how edibles are absorbed into the body can help you to see why these products are one of the most notorious for causing adverse reactions when they are over consumed.

When you smoke dry cannabis, the THC is immediately absorbed through the lining of the lungs, but with edibles, the process takes much longer, which is why you might eat a potent weed brownie and not feel a thing for up to 2 full hours afterward. Once the effects do finally set in, they are typically much more intense and longer lasting than smoking, and the evidence suggests that edibles can last for up to 12 hours after the initial ingestion.
