Many people who are new to the world of cannabis use ask us “How long does a Cannabis high last?” There’s not a simple answer to that question, because it depends on a combination of factors including the type of Cannabis being used, concentration of compounds such as THC and CBD, how it’s consumed, and the user’s metabolism and experience with cannabis. Weight, percent of body fat, and whether you have eaten may also impact your reaction to a product. Regular users can build up a tolerance and sometimes find that effects may not be as intense.
A High from Smoking or Vaping
Smoking is one of the most common ways to enjoy cannabis. It may be smoked alongside tobacco or using hand pipes or water pipes. Cannabis can also be vaporized as a flower oil or wax using pens or other portable machines. Smoking or vaping leads to a high that can last three or four hours.
What About Dabbing?
Dabbing is a method of consuming concentrates or extracts using a dab pen or a rig. Dabs contain high levels of THC, and they are potent, flavorful, and depending on the type of concentrate, easier on the lungs than smoking. The effects of dabbing are fast, which makes it one of the best ways to obtain pain relief. The high from dabbing typically lasts one to three hours.
The Effects of Edibles
Edibles are food products that contain cannabis such as gummies, brownies, or cookies. Edibles are also available as beverages and they’re a good choice if you prefer not to breathe chemicals into your lungs. It takes longer to feel the effects of edibles, but the high from edibles tends to last longer. If high doses of edibles are consumed, the high can last as long as eight to ten hours.
