Cannabis tinctures

You can consume cannabis as a tincture, to bypass the lengthy process of digestion. A few drops taken under the tongue do wonders. Tinctures work much faster. Another advantage of tinctures is that you can better coordinate the correct dosage. On the other hand, the effects will last for less.

Before edibles enter the bloodstream, they must make their way through the stomach, intestines and liver. Tinctures ensure that cannabinoids enter the bloodstream immediately. In this case there is no long waiting period for the effect to strike.

The effects of tinctures start to work faster, but the high also decreases much earlier. This is because edibles (that have a base of fat) release their cannabinoids more slowly.

Weed drinks

Just like a traditional edible such as a brownie, a cannabis drink must go through all stages of the digestive system. But because it's a liquid, the journey goes much faster. And if we may mention another great advantage of weed drinks... you can consume them very discreetly, so they are great for on-the-go.

Whether you brew a cannabis drink yourself, or buy it ready-made, weed goes very well with coffee, tea, juice and soft drinks. Whatever your preference, there is always a way to think of how to enrich it with cannabis.

Speed up your metabolic system

To allow edibles to be absorbed faster by the body, you can also try to speed up your metabolism temporarily. This plays a major role in the speed with which you digest food, and therefore also edibles. There are a few things that you can do every day to boost your metabolic rate. Eating protein-rich foods, exercising and drinking lots of water are all good for an optimal metabolic system.

But there are still a few other things you can think of. Coffee and green tea, for example, appear to support the process. These drinks naturally accelerate metabolism because of their chemical composition.
