CBD Your relationship with cannabis is completely unique

Discover how your body metabolises CBD (how long it lasts in your body). A CBD Genetic Test will reveal your distinct makeup.

How to interpret your results

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the main cannabinoids in cannabis and has no psychoactive effects but has several therapeutic effects. The CYP2C19 enzyme in the liver is the main route for metabolising and eliminating CBD from the body. The CYP2C19 genotype indicates a person’s ability to metabolise CBD. A slower metabolism of CBD results in higher CBD blood levels, while a faster metabolism results in lower CBD blood levels.
Genetic factors can contribute to the differences in an individual’s sensitivity to experiencing adverse side effects from cannabis such as neurocognitive impairment and psychosis-inducing effects. It is important to note that although genetics can be a key risk factor in developing psychosis with cannabis use, other risks may include environment factors, traumatic or stressful life events, and substance abuse.
