Sublingual Intake: The 411 on under-the-tongue cannabis


Tired of taking an edible and waiting an hour to feel it kick-in? No worries, us too. That is why we love sublingual cannabis and why we created our signature melts. Sublingual cannabis refers to hemp-derived products that are placed under the tongue and absorbed into the bloodstream for fast-acting results. Imagine being able to grab (almost) instant happiness from your pocket at any time; that’s sublingual cannabis! Does it sound too good to be true? No worries, it’s not. 

What is sublingual intake?

Just like vitamins, there are various ways to consume cannabis. Think capsules, gummies, and in our case, melts. The difference between these consumption methods is that capsules and gummies have to travel through the digestive system before taking effect, whereas melts get to skip that step, thanks to sublingual intake. How does sublingual intake bypass the digestive system? The mouth has permeable tissue that allows tablets such as vitamins and cannabis products that are placed under the tongue to be dissolved straight into the bloodstream. Because who has time to wait around for canna-bliss?

The perks of sublingual intake

Remember when we said that sublingual cannabis goes straight into the bloodstream for fast-acting results? That’s the first perk of sublingual cannabis. In comparison to the 30 to 60 minutes that traditional cannabis products take to kick-in, the effects of sublingual cannabis products can be felt in 10 to 15 minutes. This shortened time-frame is what makes the Dose Discovery Kit so great – instead of taking more and more gummies to regret it when the effects kick-in after a few hours, the Dose Discovery Kit allows you to check in with yourself every 10 to 15 to determine if you need another melt or not to find the perfect mood, no matter the occasion: the midday work slump, cali-sober happy hour, the kid’s soccer tournament – whatever it is, we don’t judge. There is a perfect mood for it all.

Potency is another perk of sublingual cannabis. The streamlined route of sublingual cannabis, from the mouth to the bloodstream, prevents it from coming into contact with the destructive stomach acids and enzymes that traditional cannabis products face during digestion. To be blunt, you will be able to feel more, with less. Plus, the streamlined route of sublingual cannabis makes it so that sublingual products don’t have to include the toxic additives that traditional cannabis products include to fight-off the destructive acids and enzymes. No more need to drink that green juice every morning to detox!
