Cannabinoid Bioavailability

Bioavailability is the percentage of cannabinoids you consume or apply that actually get into your bloodstream where they can then get to the part of the body that needs or wants them. Our Bioavailability graphic on our Key Knowledge page gives a quick visual overview, but this article gets into a little more detail (with references).

Remember that edibles are different since they go through the liver which turns them into different molecules. Anything that you swallow takes much longer to take effect but also lasts much longer than other methods of consumption.
