How long does cannabis remain in the body?

We know from research and WHO reports that CBD is safe. Its use and lingering in the body should not cause you concern. However, cannabidiol is not the only cannabinoid from cannabis. Amateurs of recreational cannabis smoking face a pitfall due to the presence of intoxicating THC in cannabis. By remaining in the body, tetrahydrocannabinol can pose a serious problem from a legal point of view, among others.

Traces of cannabis remain in the body for different lengths of time depending on where we look for them:

  • in hair: up to +/- 90 days
  • in urine: from about 3 days to even a month
  • in blood: approx. 36 hours
  • in saliva: approx. 2 days

How long the chemical residues of smoking or vaporising cannabis remain detectable depends on several factors.

The most significant of these are:

  • frequency and intensity of cannabis use,
  • lifestyle,
  • frequency and intensity of sporting activity,
  • diet and eating habits,
  • efficiency of liver and kidney detoxification functions,
  • the body's individual characteristics in terms of metabolism and detoxification,
  • percentage of body fat.

Vegetables, fruit, water and sport are the answer to cleansing the body

How do you get rid of THC from your body?

If you don't have an addiction problem and all you think about is how to quickly rid your body of THC First of all, no smoking until the test has taken place, because of the risk of it being detected in a urine test, for example. Full spectrum CBD oil is also out because, although it is legal, it contains traces of Delta-9 THC, which you want to get rid of after all.

Drink more water + use zinc, vitamin C and charcoal. Find time for physical exercise and go to the sauna. These are not fully effective methods to completely detoxify from THC in a few days, but there are no better home remedies. How quickly you get rid of THC also depends on other factors that cannot be influenced in the short term.

It is worth knowing that there are available on the market supplements in capsules and liquidswhich their manufacturers claim to support and accelerate THC detox. I have no idea how effective they are and whether they can be relied upon.

I also know from anecdotes that there are people who use intravenous vitamin infusions after prolonged periods of heavy smoking. How this treatment works from the point of view of eliminating tetrahydrocannabinol from the body I do not know. I have not been able to find reliable sources of infomation on this subject. What I do know is that the people I have spoken to praise these procedures, claiming that their well-being improves by leaps and bounds after quitting the herb.

Is cannabis addictive?

Yes, cannabis can be addictive. The problem of cannabis addiction should be of particular concern to those with addictive tendencies. Although cannabis is far less addictive than alcohol, long-term, intensive use can lead to addiction. Numerous studies and reports by anti-drug institutions indicate this.

Negative effects of daily cannabis smoking

Smoking cannabis is not the same as supplementing with phytochemicals from oils or capsules.

The difference in phytocannabinoid composition, absorption and mechanisms of action is significant. So is the difference in the severity and intensity of potential side effects.

Hemp oils contain up to a maximum of 0.2% THC, and this amount, when used correctly, has no right to cause any intoxicating effect. However, CBD can be overdosed, and you can read about the side effects of excess CBD here:

The negative effects of smoking cannabis include:

  • severe drop in motivation,
  • concentration problems,
  • disruption of homeostasis,
  • impaired cognitive and decision-making processes,
  • in extreme cases and relatively rarely, psychoactive cannabis compounds can activate psychiatric disorders - especially genetically predisposed individuals may experience psychotic or schizophrenic episodes,
  • Other messy effects of daily cannabis smoking include: endocrine dysregulation in men and fertility problems.

It is also worth knowing that, especially in minors and adults up to about 30 years of age, long-term smoking of large quantities of cannabis can manifest itself in unpredictable, permanent personality changes and negatively affect the developing brain even up to the age of 26-28. I refer mockers to scientific studies.

Cannabis withdrawal - Symptoms

The symptoms typical of ongoing cannabinol addiction described above may persist long after withdrawal. Recovery and normal functioning is possible. Recovery time varies from person to person. Cannabis withdrawal by addicts can lead to a range of physical and psychological effects.

Below is a list of potential effects and symptoms of cannabis withdrawal based on scientific research:

1. physical symptoms of cannabis withdrawal:

  • Insomnia or altered sleep patterns
  • Tremors
  • Cough
  • Headaches
  • Sweating, especially night sweats

4. cognitive changes:

5. Changes in mood:

  • Reduction in anxiety and depressive symptoms in some individuals, although others may experience an increase in these symptoms shortly after withdrawal.

6. Changes in social relationships:

  • Improving relationships with family and friends, especially if marijuana use has had a negative impact on these relationships.
    It is important to remember that the effects of cannabis withdrawal can vary from person to person depending on a number of factors, such as length and frequency of use, overall physical and mental health and individual genetic predisposition.

People who make the decision to quit cannabis and experience severe withdrawal symptoms should consult a doctor or addiction specialist for support and advice. The process that is marijuana withdrawal and its symptoms can and should be mitigated.

There are, of course, individuals for whom detox is symptom-free, recovery and sobriety is complete and withdrawal is permanent.

Detoxification is a processwhich runs more smoothly if you become your own best friend. It sounds like a truism, but there is a sense and logic to it that is worth trying to see. Also, look for support from your closest family members and friends to help you in times of doubt and be an invaluable support. They will help you stay motivated on your journey towards your goal and sobriety. Remove anything related to addiction from your environment. All bletters, grinders, vaporisers simply sell, donate or throw away. After all, they are never to be needed again. Avoid places and people that will be an obstacle.

Can CBD oils and dried hemp help during detox or therapy?

If your goal is to completely cleanse and detox your body of cannabinoids then the answer is no.

When it comes to detoxifying your body from THC, don't reach for Full Spectrum CBD oil. It contains THC and will only prolong the body's cleansing process.

As an alternative, consider oils or capsules broad spectrumwhich the Delta-9 is devoid of.

The case is different for cannabis addiction treatment.

In my opinion CBD oils can effectively support therapy and addiction treatment. When used orally, cannabinoids from the oils calm and balance you emotionally. By minimising negative emotions, you make the task easier. By the way, there is no question of amplifying the behavioural factors associated with smoking cannabis. Of course, such oil is not a cure for addiction. However, it can ease the recovery process and reduce cravings.

The use of CBD hemp oil is widely discussed in the context of minimising symptoms of depression, anxiety and PTSD. By the way, scientific studies indicate that CBD has the effect of abolishing the negative effects of THC in the human body. Sounds good to me. By the way, you can wean yourself off CBD oil at any point on your road to sobriety once you feel better and more confident. Finally, this preparation is not addictive.

The same cannot be said for smoking dried CBD. Although dried cannabis itself contains minimal legal amounts of THC, smoking or vaporising it involves the same behaviours and rituals as smoking psychoactive cannabis. Opinions vary on this, and at the end of the day the decision is yours. Although I am in favour of a sensible liberalisation of recreational cannabis use, from the point of view of treatment and detox from cannabis, dried cannabis sounds to me like the lesser of two evils rather than a means to an end.

Where to seek the help of cannabis treatment specialists?

This article is just a collection of tips. Do not treat it as medical advice because it is not. Although I am sure of what I have written, nothing can replace the advice of a professional with experience. So if you are still in doubt it is essential that you speak to a specialist doctor or therapist running a treatment programme at an addiction treatment centre.
