concrete people will tell you that concrete is properly cured after 30 days. my contractor had me remove my temporary wall supports when i was retro-pouring a foundation, after only 4 days. and that's the weight of an entire building.

but, they also say that concrete continues to cure for 60 odd years. err on the side of caution and you'll probably be fine. i removed my supports after a week, and haven't had any catastrophies (yet!??!!)
