Edibles are a great way to consume cannabis. They’re discreet, delicious, and affordable. But, there is one thing about edibles that we wish we could change – and that’s the amount of time it takes for them to kick in. With some edibles, it can take over two hours until you feel the full effects. Do you ever wonder, is there a way that edibles can work faster? Well the answer is yes, and you’ve come to the right spot to learn all the tricks.
How To Make Edibles Hit You Faster
There are a few different ways to make the THC in edibles hit you faster. If you’re tired of waiting hours for your edible to kick in, try these tips.
Increase your metabolism
The higher your metabolism, the faster you digest foods. Although it is true that some people are just born with a high metabolism, there are ways in which anyone can increase their metabolism. These include drinking a lot of water, exercising on a daily basis, eating foods high in protein, and drinking coffee or green tea, which have both been shown to increase metabolism. Next time you grab your favorite edible, pair it with a cup of coffee, green tea, or matcha. This will speed up your body’s digestion time of your tasty edible and allow it to hit you faster.
How To Make Edibles Hit You Faster: Try sublingual tinctures
When you eat an edible, your body has to break it down after it passes through the stomach, intestines, and liver before it can be absorbed. This is why it takes so long before you feel the effects. You can cut out some of the digestion time by using a tincture, which bypasses all of these areas of the body and goes straight to where you want it- the bloodstream. By taking a tincture sublingually, you just add a few drops under your tongue. This is beneficial for faster absorption because there is a mucus membrane a ton of capillaries, which allow for more direct and faster cannabis absorption.
Next time you want to try this, add a few drops directly under your tongue and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes. You’ll feel the effects come on much stronger and faster. This will allow you to control the strength and effects of your high much easier.
Try a cannabis infused beverage
These days you can find cannabis infused beverages of any kind. Lemonade, tea, coffee, and more are all available, and some of them are so good, you’ll feel like you’re sipping on a regular drink. Similar to sublingual tinctures, infused drinks are easier for your body to digest because they also pass through your body faster than a solid form edible- such as a cookie or brownie.
Try a specially formulated cannabis edible
Some edibles are specially formulated for faster release. These edible companies claim ‘rapid delivery’ and the effects can be felt 15-20 minutes after consumption. The THC is able to bypass the stomach and get into the small intestine much sooner, allowing THC to enter the bloodstream quicker.
