How long do dogs stay high on edibles? What to Know

How long do edibles affect last?

While edibles take a long time to kick in compared with smoking or vaping, they also tend to last much longer. The average dose from an edible can last 6 or more hours, with the strongest effects occurring about 3 hours after ingestion.

Do edibles work less on a full stomach?

When you eat an edible when you’re full, it takes longer to kick in, and the effects will be more mild in comparison to doing so on an empty stomach. The high will last for longer as well.

When should I get my dog to the vet?

There are four primary things you can look at to determine if you absolutely cannot delay getting your dog to the vet:Â body temperature, swallowing, loss of consciousness, and your comfort level.

We mentioned low body temperature earlier, but whats too low? A dogs normal body temperature is around 101-102 degrees Fahrenheit (38ºC). THC toxicity pushes it lower. If your dogs rectal temperature drops below 98ºF (37ºC), he needs professional medical care. If your dog loses the ability to swallow normally, thats another sign you need to get them to the vet.Â

You can test this by offering a treat or pulling gently on his tongue. If your dog cant manage a treat or doesnt pull their tongue back into swallow, they need to get to the vet. Weed also makes dogs really sleepy, but you should be able to wake your dog up. If you cant, he needs to get to the vet. Lastly, how are *you* doing with all of this? Nursing your dog through an episode like this can be a lot of work costing you a night of sleep, and be super stressful. If this is out of your comfort zone, get your dog to the vet and let the professionals do the heavy lifting.
