Sublinguals and edibles are two alternative methods of consuming cannabis aside from smokeables. These methods can be more preferable when starting out due to them being easy to dose, discreet, and gentle on the lungs. Canvast offers a range of sublinguals and edibles each with balanced curated cannabinoid blends depending on the time of day.
Let’s dive into what makes each canna-sumption method different!
Sublingual refers to a method of taking a substance under the tongue, where it is absorbed directly into the bloodstream through the sublingual artery. This method of consumption results in faster onset of effects compared to other methods such as edibles.
Edibles, on the other hand, are cannabis-infused food products that are consumed orally. The effects of edibles can take longer to onset, typically 30 minutes to 2 hours, as they need to be digested and metabolized by the liver before entering the bloodstream. However, the effects of edibles tend to be longer-lasting and can be more potent than other methods of consumption.
In summary, sublingual consumption results in faster onset of effects while edibles result in longer-lasting and potentially more potent effects.
How Do Sublinguals Work?
Sublinguals work by being absorbed directly into the bloodstream through the sublingual artery under the tongue. The active ingredients in the sublingual product are absorbed into the bloodstream and travel to the brain, resulting in the onset of effects within minutes. This is because the sublingual artery provides a direct route to the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system and liver, which can slow down the absorption of substances. The faster onset of effects and increased bioavailability make sublinguals a popular choice for people looking for a quick and effective way to experience the benefits of cannabis.
How long do Sublinguals last?
The typical effect of sublinguals can last between 2 to 4 hours, although it can vary depending on factors such as the individual's metabolism, the type and dose of the sublingual product, and the person's tolerance to cannabis.
Compared to other methods of consumption, such as edibles, sublinguals tend to result in faster onset of effects and a shorter duration. However, the actual length of the effects can vary based on the individual and the specific product being used. It's important to note that everyone's experience with cannabis can be different, and it's best to start with a low dose and wait for the effects to fully take hold before taking more.
We’ve created ‘The New Sublingual’. Our Lifters™, Drifters™, and Shifters™ lollipops have a quicker on-set effect than traditional edibles and feature balanced cannabinoid ratios, beneficial terpenes, and functional mushrooms to help you find your feel at any time of day or night. Made with vegan and organic ingredients.
How Do Edibles Work?
Edibles work by being consumed orally and then processed through the digestive system. The active ingredients in the edible are absorbed into the bloodstream through the liver after being metabolized, which can take 30 minutes to 2 hours or longer. Once the active ingredients reach the bloodstream, they travel to the brain, resulting in the onset of effects.
The effects of edibles tend to be more potent and longer-lasting than other methods of cannabis consumption due to the way they are metabolized in the liver. However, the onset of effects can take longer, and the effects can vary based on the individual's metabolism, the type and dose of the edible, and the person's tolerance to cannabis.
In summary, edibles work by being processed through the digestive system, which results in a slower onset of effects but longer-lasting and potentially more potent effects compared to other methods of consumption.
Canvast offers two different options for edibles- our mindfully crafted, vegan, and organic gummies and our incredibly delicious, hand-made, small-batch chocolate Dream Drops.
How long do edibles typically last?
The typical effect of edibles can last anywhere from 4 to 12 hours, although it can vary depending on factors such as the individual's metabolism, the type and dose of the edible, and the person's tolerance to cannabis.
Edibles tend to have a slower onset of effects compared to other methods of consumption, typically taking 30 minutes to 2 hours or longer to take effect. However, once the effects start, they tend to be more potent and longer-lasting compared to other methods.
It's important to note that everyone's experience with cannabis can be different, and it's best to start with a low dose and wait for the effects to fully take hold before taking more. Additionally, it's crucial to exercise caution when using edibles, as the effects can be more potent and long-lasting than other methods, and it's easy to accidentally consume more than intended.
