How Long Does Delta 8 Stay In Your System?

Whether you’ve used Delta 8 products yet or not, most people wonder how long it can last in your body if you were to take a drug test. We wanted to dive deep into this popular question and provide you with as much background information as possible to help you understand its complexity. 

How much time does delta 8 THC remain in your body?

The answer to this question is simple—it depends. It depends on how you consume it (product type), how often you use it, and it even depends on your own body.

Due to all of those varying factors, it is tough to say definitively how long it can stay. Still, if we were to use common variables one might say that Delta 8 can stay in your bloodstream between 5-10 days if you’re not a usual user, or 30-60 days if you’re a frequent user.

But isn't that a pretty wide range?

Age, gender, metabolism, and tolerance to Delta 8 THC are just a few of the many variables that determine how long this substance stays in your system after you stop taking it.

Let’s determine how long does Delta 8 stay in our system considering the above mentioned factors. 

First you should consider the amount you've consumed. Did you just have one gummy or a whole pack? The more Delta 8 THC in your body, the longer it will take for it to get rid of all the cannabis metabolites. 

The frequency of your use of Delta 8 THC is the second factor. Was it a one-time thing or did you consume it multiple times in the last 30 days? It should exit your system rather quickly if you've consumed it only once and haven't since used it again since then. Compare that to someone who regularly consumes Delta 8 and it will take much longer for it to exit your body.

Lastly, look at your body type. The time that Delta 8 remains in your bloodstream can differ depending on your metabolism and body chemistry. A person with a quick metabolism may be able to eliminate Delta 8 cannabis metabolites from their body in a few days, but a person with a slower metabolism may need a longer time frame. 

Things to know about Delta-8 THC

The psychoactive compound Delta 8 THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), is a cannabinoid found in cannabis. Over the years we have found more than just the two we are commonly most aware of: CBD & THC. Delta 8 is a great middle ground for users who are looking for the beneficial properties of CBD, but the psychoactive effects of THC.  

Delta-8 THC is not present in high concentrations in the cannabis plant and as a result, it is usually extracted from hemp instead, to produce higher concentration levels.

We highly recommend you checkout our Delta 8 FAQ page to learn more about this cannabinoid and go through other popular questions our customers have surrounding Delta 8. 

Ways To Take Delta-8 & How long they take to get out of your body

There are various ways to consume Delta 8 and we incorporate it in a couple different products in our store. With each consumption method, you’ll find certain aspects that play a role in how long it can take you to remove the cannabinoid from your system. 

Smoking Delta 8

A quick and comparatively efficient way to benefit from Delta 8 THC is to smoke. Delta 8 is available as flowers or concentrates for smoking through vape pens. 

However, keep in mind that the Delta 8 THC flowers aren’t the actual Delta 8 plants, they’re just Hemp CBD strains sprayed with Delta 8 THC distillate for that extra cognitive change.

If you are a regular Delta 8 Smoker than Smoking delta 8 will remain in your system for up to one week. For this reason, it is important to take regular urine tests after taking Delta 8 to see if it has already been removed.

Delta 8 Tinctures

Sublingual administration of Delta 8 THC is applied using tinctures. With just a few drops into your mouth, you can experience the great effects of this cannabinoid. 

Most of our customers say it's a great way to get it into your body without having to smoke it. Since it comes in an extracted oil type of solution, it is not quite yet known the difference in time compared to other consumption methods. It will really come down  to your own metabolism and its potency. 

Delta 8 Edibles

We also offer delicious Delta 8 gummies in various flavors which come in 20 packs with each gummy containing 25mgs of Delta 8 oil. Our delta 8 THC gummies are usually a more popular alternative than tinctures or smoking due to their potency and great taste. Delta 8 edibles can stay in your system for up to five days. After that, your body begins to break down the ingredients and flush them out, just keep in mind the other factors like frequency of use. 

How to get Delta 8 out of your system?

Delta-8 THC can be eliminated from your system by following a healthy detoxification plan and proper nutrition. Detoxification techniques include:


Delta-8 THC will likely linger in your system for a longer period of time if you are sedentary as opposed to someone who regularly exercises. 

Exercising promotes the body's lymphatic fluid circulation, which aids in more efficient toxin removal, as well as the burning of fat cells, which are where the body stores cannabinoids.

Healthy and Balanced Diet

An ideal rate of cell regeneration is ensured by eating a nutritious diet, which promotes a healthy liver, the organ in charge of the body's filtration and metabolism.

Detox Drink

There are numerous detox solutions that have been advertised specifically for passing a drug test. While we are by no means suggesting you should go this route, many users have reported this being usually a quick way to remove Delta 8 from the body. 

Just remember to watch out for components that are ineffective or even unhealthy when taken in inappropriate levels.


Your body is built to cleanse itself, so if you simply stay away from taking Delta 8 again, then the body will remove the final THC metabolites from the fat cells. You just need time for your body to do its magic and get rid of the final remnants. 

Final thoughts

It really is a tough question to answer for our customers but we hope by reading this you have a bit more context when it comes to finding out the answer for yourself. Overall, we’re all different and our bodies react differently as well, so it really depends.

There are various ways to get rid of the Delta 8 from your body, like abstaining to allow the body's natural detoxification processes to occur, drinking more water, working out more frequently, and even adopting detox products. Remember though, many detox products are risky, so you should approach them with a good dose of caution.
