How Long Do THC Gummies Last?

Like candies made with water, sugar, and jelly, gummy candies can have a fairly long shelf life. Depending on the recipe, standard gummy candies can last anywhere from 6 months to a year or even longer. Groceries, on the other hand, usually last between 6 and 8 hours. When it comes to THC gummies, most agree that the effects can last between 4 and 8 hours, with 6 hours being the average.

Consuming a normal dose of a food (approximately 10 milligrams) is expected to last 6 hours or longer. The maximum effects should last from the moment it takes effect, up to approximately 3 hours, then users tend to “adapt to their high” at that time and gradually go into a state of relaxation or even sedation. However, you can also expect to be high for 8 to 12 hours, depending on the intensity of the food and your overall tolerance to marijuana. THC gummies come in many flavors and milligram concentrations, from high-potency Delta-8 THC gummies to Delta-9 THC gummies with CBD.

Gummies produce a stronger bodily effect than other methods of administration, which is great if you want calming effects that you can feel from head to toe. Therefore, while some THC delta-9 gummies with delta-9 may seem less potent than THC delta-8 gummies in terms of concentration in milligrams, they can produce stronger effects. Of course, edibles like gummies or hard candies should presumably never go bad, but will simply lose their potency over time.
