Sublingual strips have now joined the long list of innovative cannabis products, and they might just become the most reliable, fast, and precise way to deliver a pure dose of THC or CBD. As one of the more discreet—and less pomp—cannabis derivatives, cannabis strips make a lot of sense for medical cannabis patients, for users who are very busy, don’t smoke or vaporize, or just don’t have room to store their stash! A nice dose of cannabinoids is contained in a small, stylish package that works just like a sublingual tincture, but with more ease of use and control over dosage.


Simply take a tiny paper strip out of its box, put it under your tongue, and wait a few minutes for the promised effect. That’s it. Cannabis strips work by releasing your preferred cannabinoid mix into the oral mucosa, which is a very absorbent membrane that constitutes the elastic skin wall in our mouth and under the tongue. Sublingual drug delivery has been used for a long time due to the high permeability of mucosal tissue. Sublingual strips are simply small pieces of edible material that dissolve when they come into contact with liquids, like saliva.

This supporting material can be infused with THC, CBD, aromas, and other substances, providing greater bioavailability than cannabis-infused edibles, because here the cannabinoids are absorbed directly from the oral mucosa into the bloodstream, instead of passing through the liver.


The features of these dissoluble strips can be particularly convenient for people who take THC or CBD for medical purposes and want to get a precise dose of cannabinoids anytime and anywhere. Plus, because of the aforementioned high bioavailability, the effects of these strips are as fast and powerful as smoking or vaping, and more consistent than edibles. Moreover, this method of intake avoids combustion, a form of consumption that is considered the most harmful to one’s health.

However, cannabis strips are not just conceived to cater to patients. This quick and discreet cannabis product, which requires no further tools, is one of the few you can easily store in your pocket; thus, manufacturers hope that THC strips might be appreciated by younger adults who want to enjoy cannabis in an innovative, healthier, and stealthy form.


THC and CBD strips are crafted to produce a range of different experiences. Just like strains of flower, a wide variety of indica, sativa, hybrid, THC-only, and CBD-only strips exist. Not to mention the eventual added flavours. They come in different doses per strip, with most of them vegan and sugar-free. They are made from natural gums, herbal extracts, and microencapsulated cannabinoids, plus other specialised and expensive ingredients that make the production process pretty complex and hard to replicate at home.

In case THC strips have you intrigued, don’t even think about making your own—it would likely be a waste of time and money. Instead, look to some of the innovative brands paving the way.
