I have a ton of old keif and hash that I need to dispose of so I figure I'll spend the day in the kitchen making a nice edible. Been doing a little reading and I learned (I think) something I didn't know. Basically, the edibles come in 2 forms, fat based and sugar based. The fat based edibles are designed to be chewed and eaten and the fats are absorbed into your blood via your digestive system. The sugar and glycerin based edibles are designed to be sublingual and the sugars are absorbed by your saliva. Also, stated was that sublingual method effects you almost immediately and almost always within the first hour, whereas fat based edibles are absorbed over several hours with the peak being as much as 3 or 4 hours away. Also fat based is said to last much longer. 6 to 8 hours as compared to 2 or 3 hours of sublingual. I have read this stuff at more than one site and I am wondering if the peeps here agree or have comment. I was planning to make butter and go from there. However, all my friends want gummy bears so I might go with a glycerin based. I am going to gather all my scrap and see what I have. I'll be back.
