How Long Does Delta 8 Stay in Your System?

The effects of THC delta-8 can last up to five hours in the body, but the metabolites can remain in the system for up to 90 days. Fortunately, most common tests can detect metabolites for only a few days. However, if you are a chronic user, the test may come back positive even after 30 days. THC delta 8 can remain in blood or urine at detectable concentrations for 2 to 30 days.

Many variables can affect how long it takes for Delta 8 to be completely eliminated from your system. THC is broken down into molecules called THC metabolites, which are detected by blood, urine, saliva and hair follicle tests. Factors such as age, sex, metabolism and tolerance to Delta 8 THC can all influence the period needed for it to be eliminated from your body. Delta 8 THC is still a psychoactive product and includes trace amounts of THC, which is the drug sought after during drug testing.

Delta 8 is an isomer of Delta 9 THC, meaning that they have a similar but not identical chemical structure. Your relationship with Delta 8 will depend on how hemp products interact with your body. Delta 8 THC is found naturally in cannabis plants, but only in very small amounts, so manufacturers convert CBD into Delta 8 through a process called isomerization. The effects of delta 8 vaporizers and oils will last less, between 1 and 5 hours, while THC gummies or capsules last up to 10 hours because delta 8 is gradually released into the bloodstream.

A person between 20 and 30 years old may need as little as three days to eliminate THC delta 8 from their body, while a person between 60 and 70 years old may need up to 6 days to eliminate the same amounts. Some people naturally have higher levels of this enzyme, meaning they will metabolize delta 8 more slowly than others. Inform your doctor of the delta 8 product you want to take with him and try to get a confirmation or approval that he can use it beforehand. We also looked for products that contained other natural ingredients besides Delta 8 or other cannabinoids.

There have been no studies on the metabolism of THC delta 8 in different methods of ingestion, but there is a lot of data available from users who have experience with THC delta 8 and related compounds.
