Bioavailability refers to how much of a substance (in this case, cannabinoids) your body can use after you introduce it into your system by smoking, ingesting, or absorbing it. Understanding the bioavailability of different cannabinoids can help you determine which consumption method will work best for you. For example, products that you smoke or vape typically have high bioavailability because the cannabinoids enter the bloodstream directly through the lungs almost instantly, making for a quick onset of effects. On the other hand, cannabis products that you ingest, like edibles, capsules, or tinctures, have lower bioavailability because in order for them to become active and usable in your system, they have to be digested and metabolized in the liver before your body can start using it. To put it simply, bioavailability is about how well your body can absorb and make use of something you take in.
