How Long Does CBD Stay in Your System if You Vape It?

Vaping might be a lot newer on the scene than smoking, but it’s quickly proved itself a serious contender in the world of CBD consumption. Vaping CBD offers a cleaner, easier experience with a less potent smell than smoking, making it a discrete choice for daily use. Its effects also kick in much faster than edibles, which is perfect if you’re looking for immediate results. 

However, because vaping is relatively new, many people are unsure about its specific effects – in particular, how long it stays in your system. This is an important question as it determines how frequently you should dose, but the answer isn’t as straightforward as you might think. 

At BudBros, our goal is to help you make the right decisions on getting your daily CBD dose. Below, we explore the average time it takes for CBD to leave your system, as well as all the factors that influence it. 

What’s the Average Amount of Time CBD Vape Stays in Your Body?

Unfortunately, there’s no simple one-size-fits-all answer to this. Everyone’s body processes substances differently, and the same goes for vaped CBD. 

Generally speaking, however, you can expect CBD to stay in your system for about five to six hours after a single inhalation. If you vape CBD regularly, it may take several days to a week for it to be entirely flushed out of your system. 

Of course, there are plenty of other factors that influence the duration of vaped CBD. Keep reading to learn more about them! 

What Factors Affect the Amount of Time CBD Vape Stays in Your Body?

  • Amount of CBD Vaped 

It almost goes without saying, but the more CBD you vape, the longer it takes your body to process it. This is because your liver needs more time to break down the CBD into metabolites, smaller molecules that are easier to eliminate. With higher doses, the liver gets “backed up” as it focuses on processing the larger amount of CBD first. 

  • Metabolism 

CBD is metabolised in the liver by enzymes such as cytochrome P450 (CYP450). These enzymes help break down CBD into metabolites that can be more easily eliminated from the body. A faster metabolism means that these enzymatic processes occur more rapidly, leading to quicker breakdown and elimination of CBD from the body. 

Several aspects influence metabolism, including: 

  • Age: Younger individuals generally have faster metabolisms. 
  • Sex: Men tend to metabolise faster than women due to muscle mass differences. 
  • Weight: Higher muscle mass can boost metabolism, potentially speeding up CBD removal. 
  • Genetics: Individual genetic variations can influence metabolic rate. 
  • Body Fat Level 

CBD is fat-soluble, meaning it dissolves and stores in fat tissue. This creates a “reservoir” effect that delays its release. Individuals with higher body fat percentages might see extended duration times for this reason. 

  • Frequency of Use 

CBD clears out of your system at different rates depending on how often you use it. With infrequent use (for example, once a week), CBD is eliminated relatively quickly. However, regular or frequent use leads to accumulation in your fat tissues, which takes longer to eliminate completely. 

On top of this, your liver metabolises CBD through specific enzymes. If you take low doses infrequently, these enzymes can efficiently handle the CBD. But frequent use can overwhelm these hepatic enzymes, causing CBD to stay in your system longer as its processing and clearance slows down.
