Oral THC is a relatively new product, but it has proven to be effective for many people. Oral THC works faster than the traditional smoking method of cannabis and can work well for those new to cannabis.
Edibles like gummies, brownies, and cookies that present an Oral form of THC intake take second fiddle compared to sublingual. Here is why, on consumption, they are often distorted by stomach acids. The liver then breaks them down.
Sublingual, on the other hand, is a different thing altogether. On administration, the THC is pulled straight into the bloodstream, this is made possible by membranes in the mouth, and within 10-15 minutes, you can feel the impact of your THC. It is convenient and, importantly, discrete.
Oral THC is more intense, which can take different forms: tincture, tablets, sprays, or strips. Regardless of the form, it works the same.
Just as mentioned, the sublingual administration of THC can take various forms; how this THC is absorbed is a critical question. When taken, the liver absorbs THC and then converts it from THC to Hydroxy-THC, which is a more potent and psychoactive dosage. This will increase the functioning of THC in the body and give you lasting effects.
