How Long Do Edibles Take To Kick In?

How long does it take for edibles to kick in? Before we can answer that question, it’s important to note that managing the dosage of edibles can be quite tricky.

The body chemistry of each individual is different and various factors can change the experience of a person when consuming edibles. Two individuals may respond differently even if they take the same dosage. 

How Long Do Edibles Take To Hit?

Some people can experience a hit 30 minutes after consuming an edible. For those who are new to edibles, it’s important to wait a full two hours before taking any more. This is to ensure you feel the full effect prior to adding more to your body.

The effects of edible consumption normally lasts between four and six hours. However, some consumers claim to have continued feeling these effects for up to 12 hours.

Several factors influence the onset and how long edibles last. These include:

  • Dosage
  • Age
  • BMI
  • Health conditions
  • Metabolism
  • Other medications

There will also be variations in terms of the “peak” feeling after consuming an edible. Some individuals claim to have experienced a peak effect after 90 minutes while others experienced it at three or more hours.

The dosage can contribute to the onset as well as the intensity of such peak effects.

Do Edibles Take Longer To Take Effect Than Other Consumption Methods? 

Herbs that are inhaled lead directly into the bloodstream. For this reason, effects can have a strong first onset when felt immediately by the consumer. Consuming edibles requires the product to undergo digestion, and thus, has to be metabolized first in the stomach and liver. While edibles take longer for the effects to be felt, it yields a more potent experience. For those who are new to edibles, it’s important to start with a low dosage, anywhere from 1-5mg. From there, it is suggested to wait at least two hours in order to see how the effects work for you.
