Your metabolism impacts the edible experience
Some edibles will hit you quicker
Legalization has also lead to the advancement of absorption technology. So, unlike the solid-food edibles (think: brownies, cookies, pastries, and candy) that go through your digestive system before entering the bloodstream, there are other canna-laced products with fast-acting technology. For example, Flyte makes a CBD or THC liquid that dissolves in whatever you put it in. Because it’s already broken down, the cannabinoids in the product quickly bind to cannabinoid receptors.
“When you put it in your mouth, [the cannabinoids] are absorbing immediately through your carbohydrate uptake pathways. Your body recognizes it as a carbohydrate,” Skyler Bissell, COO of Oleo Inc, told MERRY JANE in 2017. Absorption through this specific pathway increases early-onset. So it’s possible to feel the effects within 10 to 20 minutes.
Then there are edibles with sublingual technology. These infused meds usually come in the form of breath strips, sprays, tinctures, or Oil. You need to place them under the tongue to trigger the technology and allow the product to work accurately. This science-rooted application is among the most effective ways to consume cannabis. An array of over-the-counter medications also utilizes it. Since saliva glands absorb the cannabis, one should expect to feel the THC-onset between 5 and 15 minutes.
Keep in mind that everyone reacts to cannabis differently — again, it’s better to start slow. Unless, of course, you want to be lit like a birthday cake for three days. And sometimes, that’s just what we need.
