How Long do THC Gummies Last?

Whether you’re a weed enthusiast dabbling in the realm of edibles, or entirely new to cannabis and consuming infused foods, we’ve got the education and information you’re likely looking for. THC-infused foods deliver cannabinoids via the mouth and the digestive system including products such as THC gummies. THC gummies offer a discrete, convenient, and healthier method to consuming cannabis. How long do the effects of THC gummies last? The answer will depend on several factors. Considering the following variables will give you a good idea of what to expect.

When Will I Start Feeling High?

Furthermore, if you suck on the gummies for a while before you ingest them, THC absorption may begin while the gummies are still in your mouth, allowing the effects to kick in more quickly.

How Long Does the High Last?

Compared to smoking or vaping, the effects of THC edibles take longer to kick in. However, they also last far longer. While the strongest effects will occur about three hours after ingestion, you can continue feeling the high of the average edible dose for six hours or more. 

The duration of your high will also depend on factors such as the dosage, your metabolism, your body’s fat content and your tolerance levels. Large doses will likely create a high that both feels stronger and lasts longer.

If you are new to cannabis products or use them seldom, you might feel a more powerful and longer-lasting high than a regular cannabis user who has taken the same dose and built a tolerance. Those with faster metabolisms may feel the effects for less time as the body may flush the effects out faster. 

In most circumstances, you can safely assume that the high from THC gummies will last several hours. Scientific evidence indicates that the effects of edibles generally last about six to eight hours. Sensitive individuals might feel high for up to eight to twelve hours, while those with a higher tolerance might notice the effects waning after just four hours. 

Where Should I Start?

While some edibles come in doses as low as half a milligram (mg) of THC, many will recommend that newcomers start with around five mg to experience the effects. The average edible contains 5–15 mg, and higher doses can range from 20–50 mg. These levels tend to be suitable for individuals who are very accustomed to experiencing the effects of high THC levels regularly.
