Thank you for writing in.

Typical marijuana effect lasts approximately 2 hours. Most of the behavioural effects return to base line within 3-5 hours. Some residual effects may remain up to 24 hours.

Since oral ingestion takes 30minutes to 1hour for the onset of effect you tend to consume more of it which causes relative high levels in blood and it takes 2-3 times longer for the symptoms to stop manifesting.

Hope I've cleared your doubts.
