What You Need To Know About Sublingual

Sublingual dosing means that you are administering the supplement through the tissue beneath the tongue. Through this method of administration, the cannabinoids immediately enter the bloodstream because the sublingual cavity is filled with vessel-rich tissues. The sublingual application delivers the effects of cannabis in as little as 60 seconds up to 2 minutes.

(UK-CBDOILS Recommend that you keep the oil under the tongue approx 90sec)

A sublingual application is considered a better choice compared to ingestion for many because of the decreased bioavailability in the digestive tract. While with edibles only lets you absorb around 20% of the cannabinoids, and these have to first be processed by the liver before they make it to the bloodstream. This is why edibles take a significantly longer time to hit (30 minutes up to an hour or more). However, in some cases customers will use both such as edibles after sublingual application; doing so can provide a more holistic and longer-lasting supplement experience. 

Whether you are using sublingually or using other methods of administration when it comes to cannabis/hemp keep in mind that its compounds possess biphasic properties. This means that high and low doses of the same thing can lead to opposite results. Consuming small doses of cannabis/hemp is known to stimulate while large doses can sedate. There are no known side effects to CBD since it’s a nonpsychoactive compound although consuming large amounts of CBD even sublingually can be less as effective so taking moderate doses is always the key. When medicating with cannabis, keep in mind that less is always more.
