← All Cannabis Terminology

A sublingual (sub-LING-gwal) medication is one that is placed under the tongue. It dissolves in the person’s saliva and is quickly absorbed through the mucous membrane lining of the mouth; also known as hypoglossal.

Advantage: More rapid absorption rate than orally, higher concentration of medication reaches the bloodstream by not passing through the stomach.

Disadvantage: Not a convenient route of administration for bad tasting medications or those that might irritate the mucous membrane.
