Duration:  3-4 hours

Peak effect:  2-6 hours

Duration:  4-12 hours

Administration:  Oral

Capsule products are available in varying strengths and formulations.

Sublingual Administration

Sublingual forms are administered under the tongue and may be faster acting as the medicine is absorbed into the blood through the mucosal membrane in the mouth.

Peak:  15 minutes

Duration:  6-8 hours

Administration:  Sublingual

Sublingual tincture products are available in varying strengths and formulations.

Inhalation through vaporization is the fastest-acting method of administration.  When inhaled, the active ingredients of the product pass directly into the bloodstream from the lungs.  Pharmacological effects occur within 5-20 inhalation.

Peak effect:  15-30 minutes

Duration:  2-3 hours
