How long does it stay in the system? – This is one of the many questions people have when it comes to marijuana edibles. There is a general answer to this question, but the reality is that edible pot products greatly vary on how long they stay in the body. It also depends on the consumer’s body type and metabolism. Basically, there are three main kinds of cannabis edibles, each one differently metabolized and differently affects the body.

1. Gastrointestinal Edibles – The most common and easily understood, these edibles mostly come in the form of cookies, brownies and other sweet treats. It is absorbed once it reaches the digestive tract and the effects can start in at least 45 minutes. Starting in low dosage and patience is needed with this edible.
2. Oral Edibles – These are mostly sold as lozenges and tinctures and are absorbed through tissues in the mouth, particularly under the tongue. Effects can be felt in 15 minutes. This is popular among people experiencing acute, severe (mostly pain) symptoms that needs immediate relief.
3. Hybrid Edibles – Absorbed both orally and through the gastrointestinal tract, these edibles gives an almost immediately effect and is followed with a time release effect of more THC as it is digested. Their most common forms are drinks, and give a smoother and longer high experience.

When consuming marijuana edibles, it is important that you carefully consider the dosage. Despite the fact that there so many varieties of edibles, the accepted dosage for many people is consistently at about 10 milligrams of THC. For first timers, buy products that come in 10-milligram packages to make dosing easier for you. Experienced users might find themselves comfortable ingesting high doses.

The rule of thumb in eating marijuana edibles is to start low and go slow. Take note that its ingredients will remain active in your system for a few hours. After some experience, you will eventually learn how to properly time dosages to get the optimal high. Usually, though, the high effect can felt in at least two hours. Small amounts of THC (which is the most important element in medical weed) will remain detectable in your body for up to a month.

People who frequently use marijuana might have detectable THC amounts staying in the tissues of the body for up to three months, although these traces are bound to be inert. Will marijuana edibles show up during a urine test? The answer to this is yes. But this will not happen if this is your first time consuming them, and have only tried one edible. At most, you should not have to worry about failing a urine test about eight hours after consumption.
