How Long After Taking CBD Oil Can I Drink Water

By Juan
How long after CBD can I drink?

CBD is getting prominence due to its health benefits and therapeutic properties. It is widely available in many forms from CBD oil, to gummies, capsules, creams, and lotions.

As there are so many types of Cannabinoids available in the market, it might be confusing for everyone how to take CBD oil? How to consume CBD capsules? How can we apply CBD creams and lotions?

Carmen’s Medicinals offers all pure and quality CBD products with proper dosage instructions and guidance for taking Cannabidiol. 

Let’s start with some good news: You don’t have to wait to drink water after taking CBD oil. It means when you put CBD oil under the tongue, hold it for 30 to 60 seconds then after this you can drink or eat anything. There’s no need to wait for a long time to drink water.

The only thing to note is that if you take other medications with CBD oil, you should wait for a short time period between taking Cannabidiol because it can interact with other medications and you will experience adverse reactions. So it’s important to wait for some time and then you can take other medications.

How long after taking CBD oil can I drink water?

If you take Cannabidiol topically, orally, or in a vape, you can drink water normally without causing problems with absorption. However, if CBD is ingested sublingually via a tincture, you should wait for at least 30 to 60 seconds for the tincture to fully absorb before consuming anything else.

CBD with Other Liquids and Drinks

Remember that while using CBD oil in coffee, tea, juice, or other meals is beneficial, its bioavailability is lower and it takes much longer for it to be absorbed by your system and have an impact.

It's also important to keep in mind that if your mouth is dirty, it could be more difficult to be absorbed sublingually. A great way to get your mouth ready for the best absorption is to brush your teeth before applying CBD oil.

It is also beneficial to use CBD oil after eating, provided you give it time to absorb. Depending on how you're taking the Cannabidiol product, it can also be helpful to delay eating for a short while.

One study found that using CBD oil with E-liquid is not suitable, as your oil doesn’t get mixed with water. When you inhale vape, you will not feel the dosage so it’s better to avoid using Cannabidiol in vape pens.

What happens if you swallow CBD oil?

Swallowing CBD won’t help you to achieve your desired results. You should wait for at least 30 seconds before swallowing Cannabidiol.

If you hold CBD oil under your tongue for at least 30 to 60 seconds, most of it will be absorbed. Researchers found that holding CBD oil under the tongue will absorb it more quickly than any other form. If you take Cannabidiol drops and tinctures sublingually, the amount of dosage that enters your bloodstream is between 20-30%.

However, few traces of oil will be left behind and it’s better to swallow it. 

If you swallow the whole dosage initially, the chance of impacting CBD oil on your health is only 5%. So if you swallow the whole dosage, it won’t help you to get better results, you may have to increase the dosage to experience any impact.


Can you drink after taking CBD oil?

Doctors strongly suggest their patients to not drink alcohol after taking CBD or don’t ingest Cannabidiol-based products with alcohol as they both amplify each other’s effects. Whether you’re taking CBD or THC with alcohol, it will cause sleepiness and sedation.

Can you drink water after taking an edible?

Yes, you can drink water after taking an edible. If you only consume edibles alone, you will not feel or experience its effects and there is a good chance that the effects might not get started. You can move those edibles along your digestive tract by drinking some water. 

Drinking water after taking edibles will help to clear any remaining compounds from your blood more quickly.

Can you mix CBD oil with juice?

You can mix CBD oil with citrus juices. Many people don’t like the taste of Cannabidiol, they mix drops of oil in smoothies, juices and even in coffee.

In short, you can mix Cannabidiol with any beverage.

CBD Oil Benefits

People take Cannabidiol-based products to treat different problems. The most common benefits of CBD oil are:

  • Relieve chronic pain
  • Reduces mental health disorders (anxiety and depression)
  • Could minimize cancer-related symptoms 
  • Improves overall heart health (balances high blood pressure)
  • Protection against neurological complications
  • Reduce PTSD symptoms
  • Improvement in the sleep cycle
  • Helps people with schizophrenia


CBD Oil Side Effects

Cannabidiol-based products are safe, their results depend on the purity of CBD products. If you take products that include THC or take high doses suddenly, then may you feel some mild side effects.

CBD oil side effects include:

  • Drowsiness or fatigue
  • Dry mouth
  • Low blood pressure
  • Changes in appetite
  • Diarrhea
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Anxiety
  • Changes in mood
  • Lightheadedness

These side effects will go away within an hour, if you feel an adverse reaction even after four hours, then it’s better to look for a doctor.

Severe side effects may include:

  • CBD can also interact with other medications and may cause you to get an adverse reaction.
  • Liver problems are also reported due to high doses of CBD.



How long does CBD oil take to enter your system?

Taking CBD oil and tinctures are the quickest way to treat your problem. When you ingest CBD oil, it takes only 30 seconds to enter your body system (bloodstream).

Can I swallow CBD oil with water?

You can swallow CBD oil water but you won’t feel the dosage result. When you take CBD oil with water, it reduces the impact of Cannabidiol. Studies showed that you may feel only 5% of the whole dosage effect. Also, it takes a longer time to experience results.

If you want 100% dosage impact, we suggest you don’t swallow CBD oil with water.

How long does pure CBD oil stay in your system?

Based on existing research CBD is likely to remain in the system for about 85 hours, or about 3.5 days. According to doctors, these metabolites may stay in your system from 24 hours to 3 days. 

The time it takes to stay in our body varies from person to person and these substances can show up on a urine test even after a week.

How long after taking CBD oil do you feel it?

You can feel CBD oil after 15 to 20 minutes. The benefits of Cannabidiol usually start to take 15 minutes after vaping it or taking it sublingually (holding it under the tongue). It can take up to two hours for edibles, gummies and topical medications to start working.

Can I brush my teeth after taking CBD oil?

Yes, you can. But there is no need to brush your teeth after taking CBD oil.

Doctors recommend brushing your teeth after consuming CBD gummies or any other edible form of CBD.

Last Words

When you take CBD oil, your body normally needs some time to fully absorb the Cannabidiol into your bloodstream. When you hold it under your tongue for 30 seconds, there is a good chance (20% to 30%) it enters your body and treats the problem, then you can drink water after those 30 to 60 seconds. 

Water consumption right after CBD oil can help the substance to flush out and leave the body. Therefore, it’s better to wait for the CBD oil to metabolize fully before taking a second dose.
