How long does marijuana last?

The duration of a marijuana high usually depends on mode of administration. Additionally, the effects of marijuana vary by individual. We review marijuana high effects on the body and brain here. Then, we invite your questions about marijuana at the end.

Marijuana effects on the body and brain

Marijuana effects are highly dependent on several factors related to the administration of marijuana and marijuana’s quality in general. For example, if marijuana is ingested orally, the effects will be milder but will last longer than several hours.  Bear in mind that a first time marijuana user will not necessarily feel the same high effects as a chronic user; effects will vary from euphoria and panic to no effects at all.

Other factors which affect the psychoactive effects of marijuana include:

  • age, height, weight, and general health
  • amount of THC found in the dose
  • concurrent use of marijuana with other drugs
  • environment
  • mode of administration
  • the person’s level of tolerance to marijuana & THC
  • personal expectations
  • previous experiences with or exposure to marijuana
  • type of cannabis strain

How does marijuana work to create its effects? THC binds to cannabinoid receptors in the central nervous system and interferes with important neurotransmitter systems involved in physiological, psychomotor and cognitive effects. Marijuana affects the central nervous system and has the ability to cause anxiety attacks, paranoia, hallucinations (weaker than LSD), memory loss and others. However the “positive” effects of marijuana include relaxation, intensified perception, and high levels of satisfaction with the surrounding environment.

A person using marijuana may also become aware of usually automatic, non-conscious muscle tensions, movements, feedback and control processes. Additionally, the effects of marijuana on mood often varies from person to person. In general, emotions can become exaggerated, which makes the user act inappropriately in regular situations. Marijuana also has the ability to cause short-term memory loss and can affect IQ.

Marijuana time in the body

The active ingredient in marijuana, tetrahydrocannabinol or delta-9-THC or simply THC, enters the body’s bloodstream rapidly after smoking marijuana. If marijuana is ingested orally, it takes longer to be absorbed into the blood (usually from 20 minutes to 1.5 hours). How long does THC stay in the system?

Once in the blood, THC is rapidly metabolized into molecules known as metabolites. At least 80 different metabolites are formed from THC. The majority of THC is excreted by the feces (65%) and over 30% leaves the body via the urine, although a very small amount of unchanged THC leaves the system intact. In urine, THC is noticeable up to 3 days after the last dose of marijuana. However, chronic use can be detected weeks or months after last use.  And as with any other drug, marijuana is noticeable for 90 days minimum in a single human hair.

How long do marijuana effects last?

Effects of smoking marijuana are noticeable within minutes after the first toke, and usually reach peak levels after 30 minutes. Most physical and psychological effects of marijuana will return to normal within 5 hours after administration, with exceptional strains or high potency THC effects reported to last for 24 hours.

How long does a marijuana high last

The duration of a marijuana high is highly dependent on several factors, such as chronic (medicinal or recreational) use, polydrug use, etc. But generally, marijuana highs usually last for about 2 to 3 hours. A typical high from smoking marijuana lasts for about 2 hours; orally ingested THC or marijuana can trigger a high that lasts for longer: about 4-6 hours. However, psychomotor impairment can remain after the initial high effects have worn off. Most common among these after effects are irregular time tracking, hand and eye coordination, or memory gaps.

Marijuana high effects

A wide range of effects may occur during a marijuana high, which vary in their intensity and quality. Among the most common and easily noticeable effect of marijuana high is the intensification of sensation and increased clarity of perception. Visual perception can change, colors seem to be brighter, patterns and graphic design are easily recognizable. Among other possible effects of a marijuana high are:

  • appetite stimulation
  • changes in perception of pain
  • changes in perception of time
  • enhanced sense of taste and smell
  • increased fidelity and dimension of music
  • intensified sense of hearing
  • more sensitivity to heat, cold, and pressure receptors
  • objects appear more visually distinct

We would also like to point out the effects marijuana has on driving, a controversial topic. Marijuana can affect driving capabilities up to 3 hours after administration and includes judgment about distance, as well as attraction to light and sleepiness, particularly affecting prolonged and monotonous driving routes.

If you are a naturally anxious person and self medicate with cannabis is it counteractive as its known for causing paranoia?? I’ve smoked most of my life and have always felt fine unless taking speed with it which does affect me terribly but what are the scientific results for this? does weed always cause paranoia to the point of making you anxious? haven’t self medicated for a while now n feel no different??

Hi Joe. In urine, THC is noticeable up to 3 days after the last dose of marijuana.

Hi Marcus. In urine, THC is noticeable up to 3 days after the last dose of marijuana, but there are many variables like your physical health, level of hydration, etc. that cab influence the timeline for getting clean from marijuana.

My son came to me the other day and was saying he was scared I was asking him what was wrong he said he and 5 other friends smoked 3joints all at one time and now 3 days later he said he still don’t feel right he said it feels like he’s in a dream. He said this was the first time he ever tried it and he said it won’t ever happen again. But could he still be having affects from smoking them?

I smoked weed…. very small amount from a bong & had a crazy body high. It has now been over 24 hrs (11 pm Sat – 6am Monday). Durring the day it comes and goes but when i sit i still feel rippling in my body when I move, & my heart randomly starts beating quickly & have issues sleeping.
Is this a normal occurrence &

I don’t normally smoke.

3:00 pm January 12th, 2015

Hi Rita. Many first-time users and regular marijuana smokers have reported getting this feeling. As scary as it may be, it should be gone after 4-5 days. Illegal drugs have different effects on everyone, which is why they’re illegal. Also, marijuana stimulates anxiety in people who have anxiety issues. If your son has these issues, he should STAY AWAY from marijuana, because it can actually make it worse.

Hi, i have been smoking for about 7 years now and i was just wondering how long it would take to get out of my system so im ok to drive legally again?
Thanks

11:06 am February 9th, 2015

Hi John. It will be out of your system quickly, but the effects can last for quite a long time. When you’ll be able to legally drve againg, I don’t know. Depends on how long your organism will take to heal itself and return to homeostasis, and that’s an individual thing.

hi I am looking for some way to help my son. He smoked marijuana about a month ago, maybe 5 weeks ago, and, as a result, became completely paranoid and anxious.It was not the first time he smoked – he’s had a reasonable amount of experience. It has sent him into a downward spiral of depression and anxiety. He says that he still feels the physical effects, like a flush, and it is still completely freaking him out. We have taken him to the dr and he is now receiving anti anxiety medication but he wants to know how long he will feel the physical effects – “flashbacks”. Any info is helpful. Thank you

janie
10:32 pm March 17th, 2015

HI,

how long should someone wait before driving?

1:07 pm March 19th, 2015

Hi Janie. You shouldn’t drive until all the effects have subsided. Depends on how you react to the substance and the strength of the effects it produces. Please be careful, your reactions tend be significantly impaired and your concentration will be low, at least for hours after smoking.

I dealt with crazy anxiety, panick attacks, and went through a point of depersonalization through high school and about a year after it continued. It was affecting my school and just my quality of life. Finally one day I just realized I’m the one freaking myself out. We just have to calm our own minds and realize that you DO have control over yourself and stop telling ourselves we don’t have control over it. And I just started smoking weed and I feel fine been smoking got just about 2 weeks I was nervous because the first time I tried it I had a bad high which was a while back but i just didn’t think of that bad high and eased into it, I only took one hit to see how I felt and I felt fine. Now I probably only take a good 2-3 hits to relax after a long day.

What if you some some weed with someone you just met and then after words your body starts to feel different almost like nom . You ask the person what they gave you but they say nothing and gets frustrated with you . What type of weed can have your body feeling num like you tired and about to pass out. How. Long does it take to wear off ,?

Ryas
4:31 am May 29th, 2015

@Kiki,

If it was weed there are generally two kinds:
One that perks you up or one that relaxes you (Usually Sativa strains perks you up and Indica relaxes), it sounds like you had something from the Indica line.

As a new user the effects can be a bit “harsher” and last longer but don’t worry, it will be out of your system soon (hours).

How do I know? I smoked a few times and I’m a geek 😉

/R

P.S Next time smoke only with people you know and trust, no strangers no matter how attractived you may be to them

Hello!
I am a 73 year old female and due to my several spinal stenosis I obtained a medical card and I bought and consumed, for the very first time in my life, and I was advised to take some Cheeba Chews, first 1/4 of the chews and after 45 minutes another halve of the total of 50 mg THC, totally taken 25 mg. It has been three weeks ago and I still have the terrible side effects of dizziness, blurred vision, my short term memory is worse than ever, I am also confused and have a head ache at the back of my head, I am just not myself anymore. Adding to that I still have the pain. Do you have any idea how long I will feel like this? I don’t know what to do anymore. Please help.
Sincerely,
Rosemarie

Hello! I smoked 2 fat joints last night and no high. Is that a normal amount? Maybe I’m smoking it wrong? Opinions please :-)

11:06 am June 23rd, 2015

Hi Roy. If you are a chronic smoker it is very possible that your organism has gotten used to the presence of marijuana and has built up tolerance. This may be one reason you felt no effects.

Max

Hi, i really need help because i’m too scary right now.
I smoked weed for the first time (it’s was an entire cigarrete) and after 48 hours (at this moment) i feeling a kind of “hangover”, it’s not like the effects that i felt, it’s looks like i’m lazy and can’t pay attention in anything, it’s look like i’m in a dream or something like that.
Should i be worried about it?

Hi i have a question, However, psychomotor impairment can remain after the initial high effects have worn off. Most common among these after effects are irregular time tracking, hand and eye coordination, or memory gaps.

How long can these effects last? is it until all the THC has left the body or is it a few hours later, Thanks in advance.

Hi
I don’t smoke weed at all but I tried a cookie this past Saturday wirh 10 mg of THC while visiting Colorado. It was a terrible experience with paranoia and anxiety. I know I should have had way less. I know that now.
Yesterday (three days later) I experienced more anxiety and it has been lingering since. Could this be because of the cookie? Is it possible that there is some residual affects? If so, when will it pass? Anything I can do in the meantime? Thank you for your time.

With the trip my body felt numb, it didnt feel like I had control of myself, everything looked bright, objects looked very clear and high definition and distinct. Its been two weeks and still have some of effects. Sometimes I feel like I dont have control of myself, also objects still look weird and objects look closer than they appear and every object looks so distinct and high definition. I was wondering if this will go away. I have only smoked about seven times in my life. I really want a answer. I have been to many doctors and they dont know what the problem is. Please help me.

I tried some weed a while back and on my first two drags I didn’t get much to exhale. The third drag I had a noticeable exhale, not like a cigarette but noticeable. In about eight minutes I went into a panic mode. I couldn’t focus, started sweating profusely. I got up and went to get a towel in the bathroom. Leaving the bathroom I couldn’t walk. I crawled back to my chair and tried to call my daughter but couldn’t see the numbers on my phone.Eventually, after about ten minutes, I settled down. I was still under the influence but was relaxed and could focus. What was that and could that reaction lead to death? Thank You !

8:43 pm November 18th, 2015

Hello Daniel. You’ll be alright, and that reaction cannot lead to death. But, please be careful in future.

No body has ever died from marijuana. It is a drug with medicinal value and should be respected as such. There are different types of marijuana and potencies etc. Some strains are relaxing while others may be uplifting. This is why some people seek marijuana for help with anxiety while others feel anxious high. It shouldn’t be in the hands of people without a doctor. For those who still feel high days later, it’s called GUILT or REMORSE. THC is only active in the bloodstream for a few hours after consumption, this is why blood screen drug testing isn’t recommended for marijuana use.

Jon
5:39 am December 2nd, 2015

Oh and to help anyone who panics while high, if it’s like ur first time, or your not used to it or something, the best thing you can do is relax and let the weed do what it wants. It won’t hurt you, but panicking will hurt you. If u fight the ocean you will drown, so don’t fight it. (Just feel like some people gotta know this) also, if you are feeling the effects way later than you should be feeling it, like a few days later you still feel wierd, its normal, it happens to me, and over time it will fade away. Just ignore it. If you focus on it and worry about it then it will get worse.

Hi. Thanks for taking the time to answer my question. I took three hits from a blunt news year. Up to then the last time I got hi I was 18. I am now 38. So it been a while. When I was hi it was like I dreamed that hole night and even when I was not hi I liked dreamed it. It Sunday and it like some things that happen it liked I dreamed it. It like a bad case of déjà vu. I hop you can read that. I talked with some friends about it. It has haloed a little. When I smoked it when I was younger the same thing happened. I hop you understand what I am asking. I know it sounds crazy. Again thanks for taking the time to answer the question.

I have gotten high a total of 3 times. The last time i smoked weed i had a headache after wards for a few days. So I smoked 2 more days in a row. 2 days after that I still have a raging headache throughout the day the headache releivers can barley sustain. Am I going to fast to get my body use to cannabis. Or does it just not like it at all? Are these symptoms normal for new users? I’m pretty possible I didn’t smoke stems or seeds.

Hi, Vishal. It sounds like you have taken too much marijuana while drinking, and are now experiencing withdrawal. A few home remedies have proven to be useful like:
1. drink cranberry juice to help cleanse the body
2. drink plenty of water and clear liquids
3. eliminate fat from the diet until digestion is better
4. hot relaxing bath
Also, here is a list of suggested reading on this topic: http://addictionblog.org/?s=marijuana+withdrawal
Hope this will work!

You have stated that negative effects of cannabis edibles (such as memory gaps) can persist after the initial high. Do these effects persist, or do they too fade? If the ladder is the case, what is the average time period before they fade? Also, is your IQ negatively affected after a one time use?

Most states have alcohol impairment standard of “to the slightest degree” or similar language. Under this standard for marijuana, what is your experience, science, opinion concerning this?

Thanks,

Hey, around two days ago I smoked a blunt for the first time in a while and it was pretty strong. That night I felt like everything was slow motion and I am still feeling like my sense perception is kind of off. I don’t know if I should be worried about this but I feel kind of scared and I don’t know if I should go to a doctor

It was studied and published years ago, that one marijuana cigarette was equivalent to one pack of regular cigarettes in terms of carcinogens. I do not have a link to this study but it was out there for years.

I have a really bad experiance with weed the last time I smoked it lasted 7 days. I think it was laced with something. I’m scared to smoke again but I’ve been under alot of stress and i have serious back pains. Should I smoke or ask my doctor for medication?

Ryan
2:48 pm April 27th, 2016

@Mel,
Sounds like the stuff you are getting is bad, laced with something as 7 days for weed is pretty much unheard of (maybe if this was your first time, but still unusual)

Although I am not a doctor, just a smoker, my 2 cent advise:
Either
buy from someone else who is more trusted
or
go to the doc.

One of my friends has smoked weed yesterday around 22 hours ago to this minute for the first time in 5 months. His effects were immediate and began with coughing attacks and than hallucinations and dizziness. These effects lasted 4 hours and none of his previous experiences with weed have been nothing like this. The weed was not pre grinded and the dealer has a fair reputation so I don’t think it was laced but I don’t know forsure. Also he still feels like his coordination and thinking is not 100% right now. How long do you think itll be before it goes away.

Don’t worry about it and try to enjoy it, for first time users it can last a few days and a few more days imagined… :)
It will go out of your system in a short while if you don’t hit again…

I’m still high after smoking yesterday. I’m a chronic user and i have after effects everytime. Ask any real weed smoker if you have some gas then you’d be waking up high.I smoke at least a pound a week, now I grow my own shit. I have a room full of pot plants in my basement. I make at least 4500 a week, on a good week 5000. People come to me alot asking for bud, because I’d give them a dime for 5 or a dub for 10. I only sell lowl pack too. But the real money comes from selling ounces and pounds.

I took marijuana orally and it was a lot for me, i started to feel like i was in my own world, things were moving so slow and i started to see things with more concentration, i had panic attacks and i thought i was going mad so i told my friend to take me to sleep. I woke up the next morning still feeling like am hallucinating and i lost sense of reality. I’m regaining sense to reality slowly n was wondering if i will soon gain my full sense of reality?

Anyone who has ever felt the same to help please.

Hello, my name is Daniel and im an avid smoker. I smoke around 3 grams of marijuana a day and love it. I can still function and complete all of my daily tasks such as work, school work, house work, and even the gym. For those of u freaking out you should just relax, its only pot. So ur kids in a funk after smoking, give him some water and make him go sweat it out.
