sent to the brain.
• Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy in particular benefit. THC can help treat nausea and vomiting.

Cannabis Bioavailability & Delivery
Instant THC & Instant CBD
Bioavailability is a term for the amount of substance that can be absorbed and utilized by our bodies after ingestion. Normally, the enzymes and acids in our stomachs and livers destroy or filter out cannabinoid compounds before they have an opportunity to be absorbed. Increasing cannabinoid bioavailability is a revolutionary breakthrough in the science of edible and medical cannabis.
Powdering the essential oils of the cannabis plant and then dissolving the powder into liquid form activates the “carrier” properties of the liquid beverage. This allows THC, CBD and other beneficial cannabinoids to reach the bloodstream faster than with traditional edibles, with an onset as fast as 10−15 minutes. The process makes lower doses more effective, allows for less overall consumption, and reduces the risk of overdose.
