Fast Acting Edibles: What They Are and How They Work


Edibles are a popular choice among many consumers. They can be less intimidating than smoking, and they can be easier to “microdose” as well as offer a different sort of high. The only real potential downside is that it can take longer to work.

At least, that’s how it’s always been, but things are changing. One Colorado-based company, Azuca, has really been in the spotlight lately.

With Azuca’s new technology, many vendors are creating fast acting edibles, products that can bypass the usual route to hit your system faster. We’re breaking down how they work and how to get them.

How do they work?

As we’ve discussed before, edibles take a while to take effect because they have to travel through the digestive system. THC molecules need time to make their way through the liver and turn into 11-hydroxy-THC. This leads to a different high than smoking.

To combat this, Azuca created what they call “Thermodynamic individual Molecular Encapsulation,” or TiME. With this new technology, THC molecules are encapsulated and become water soluble, bypassing the liver and instead being absorbed directly into the soft tissue of the mouth, esophagus, and stomach.

This leads to a more consistent high that often works faster, somewhere between two and 15 minutes.
