How Do Edibles Work?
As you may have noticed, infused cannabis products are available in many various forms including: lotions, edibles, liquids, vaporizers, capsules, and more. Most people don’t fully understand how these various forms of products work to provide effects on the body. Bioavailability is the term used to refer to the degree and rate at which cannabis (or any substance) is absorbed by the body’s circulatory system.
Bioavailability varies considerably from person to person based on metabolic rate, sleep cycles, age, health of the gastrointestinal tract, and other factors. All of these greatly affect a product’s potency, onset time, and duration. The following table summarizes the differences between the three primary ways that cannabis can be processed by your body.
Digested by the gastrointestinal system (cookies, snacks, etc.) and processed in the liver before making it to the bloodstream.
Onset: 30min – 3 hrs
Duration: 6 – 8 hrs
Bioavailability: 8 – 15%
Products (logzenges, candies, mints, etc.) are dissolved in the mouth and enters bloodstream through the mucous membranes.
Onset: 15 – 60 mins
Duration: 4 – 6 hrs
Bioavailability: 6 – 20%
Vaporized or smoked cannabis is inhaled into the lungs where it is then absorbed into the bloodstream.
Duration: 2 – 4 hrs
Bioavailability: 10 – 35%
