Sublingual or oral mucosal administration is an excellent way for a patient to introduce cannabis in their body for fast acting relief. The patient will place the desired amount in the mouth, under the tongue, and does not swallow for up to 2 to 3 minutes. They would start feeling the effects within 10-15 minutes. Tinctures are a great alternative to inhalation for fast acting medication. Not only can a patient give themselves a dose that is fast acting, but they can be very precise with the milligrams during dosing. This method is also inconspicuous (no smell or smoke). The one issue with sublingual administration is bioavailability, which is the lowest in comparison to all other methods.
