Topping our list of the tastiest ways to consume CBD is drinking it.
You can find the earthy-tasting compound in many popular beverages, including fizzy sodas and convenient instant drink powders.
These drinks are simple, but how long does it take you to feel the effects?
Bottom Line Up Front: How Long Does it Take to Feel a CBD Drink?
The biggest challenge in creating an oral CBD product is how quickly it takes for people to feel the compound's effects. Our stomachs and liver process the CBD first. This is what causes the delayed onset. But CBD drinks made with nano-emulsification are different. Instead of passing through the liver, the CBD water can be absorbed faster, as it could pass straight through the lining of the stomach.
The result is that you can feel the effects of CBD almost immediately. It's like drinking water, but with all of the benefits.
CENTR's CBD drinks offer a rapid onset and more effective absorption of the CBD. This means that you can feel the effects of nano-emulsified CBD water faster than other types of edibles. It also means you can take less of it to achieve similar results.
How long does it take for CBD drinks to take effect?
CBD is known to have several unique effects. CBD drinks can take effect within 15-45 minutes after ingestion and will last for several hours or even days, depending on the dosage used. But, there are a few factors to consider regarding how long it takes before you feel the effects.
There is no set time for CBD to take effect because it depends on many factors, including an individual’s metabolism and weight.
Another factor to consider is the type of product. CBD oils and vapes take a matter of minutes. Edibles and oral products can take up to an hour or more before you feel their effects. They need time to metabolize through your digestive system into your bloodstream.
If you’re new to CBD, start with a small dose and wait at least an hour before taking more. It’s also important to note that different people may experience different effects—some users report feeling relaxed while others feel energized.
In general, CBD-infused drinks take about 20 minutes to kick in. The effects typically last anywhere from two to four hours but can be more potent depending on the dosage.

There are various ways of ingesting CBD, including capsules, gummies, and drinks. CBD oils, especially those applied directly under the tongue, and can be absorbed into the bloodstream more quickly than other types of CBD.
Sublingual application is one of the faster and more efficient ways of ingesting CBD. Products like gummies, capsules, and edibles take much longer before we feel the effects.
But what about CBD drinks?
They are neither sublingual nor are they strictly edible. So how long does it take to feel a drink's effects?
CBD drinks are not a new phenomenon. They have been around for quite some time, but there is very little research on how long it takes to feel their effects. The answer is: “It depends.” The absorption of a drink's CBD depends on how the product is made. Most people who enjoy CBD drinks achieve the desired effects within a few minutes. If they do, they've chosen a good CBD drink!
It takes less time to feel the effects of a drink than it does with other products. This is because drinks are absorbed directly into the bloodstream through the stomach. This means they go straight to work on your body, providing fast-acting relief where you need it most.
The ingredients of the drink influence how quickly we feel its effects.
And when we talk about ingredients, we're talking about the CBD and how manufacturers infused it with water. It's important to note that CBD is fat-soluble, meaning it will dissolve in fat, not water. This is why manufacturers use nanotechnology to help the CBD dissolve in water. Through nano-emulsification, the fat-soluble compounds can bind with water. Making it easier for our bodies to absorb them when we consume them as part of a beverage.
As with any product, you should use caution when purchasing CBD drinks because not all are created equal. Some contain very little CBD and are mostly sugar water. Others contain large amounts of sugar and other additives that make it difficult for your body to absorb the beneficial compounds from hemp oil.
Does CBD make you high?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is an active ingredient in Cannabis sativa plants that people say has many potential health benefits. However, CBD does not cause a high like THC.
The psychoactive properties of cannabis are mainly due to its THC content. Since hemp-derived CBD has less than 0.3% THC, it is improbable you will feel euphoric effects.
CBD is a non-psychoactive compound that doesn't bind to the same receptors in the brain as psychoactive cannabinoids (such as THC) do.
Additionally, CBD can lessen the intoxicating effects of THC by preventing a receptor from binding with these compounds.
Is CBD an addictive substance?
Although more research is needed, early reports from the World Health Organisation suggest that CBD does not leave users feeling dependent. This may be because it doesn't act on the same receptors as other drugs or because of its anti-addictive properties.
The report further stated that the cannabinoid could potentially help individuals battling addiction and withdrawal symptoms. Some people already use CBD to reduce symptoms of withdrawal. It could be because early research suggests CBD interacts with serotonin receptors in the brain.
How long does CBD stay in your system?
The average time it takes for CBD to be cleared from your system is between one and two weeks. However, this can vary depending on dosage, frequency of use, and the method of ingestion. If you have taken a high dose of CBD, it may take longer than usual to clear from your system.
The Bottom Line: How Long Does it Take to Feel a CBD Drink?
The biggest challenge to creating an oral CBD product is how quickly it takes for people to feel the compound's effects. When we consume CBD edibles, our bodies process the cannabinoids by way of the digestive system. This causes a delayed onset of effects and often leads users to over-consume as they wait for an effect that may never come.
But nano-emulsified CBD water is absorbed more quickly than regular CBD drinks. This is because its molecules are small enough to pass through the lining of the stomach and into blood vessels. This means that the effects of nano-emulsified CBD are felt almost immediately. Instead of waiting for hours, people who consume nano-emulsified CBD water can feel its effects within minutes.
