A buccal troche is a small lozenge that dissolves between your upper cheek and gums. You don’t suck them. You don’t swallow them. And you don’t chew them. Instead you let them dissolve directly into your cheek mucosa for rapid onset.
When you swallow your supplements or drugs, they are digested in the stomach and small intestine, absorbed through the lining of the gut, and then pass through the liver in a process called first pass metabolism.
First of all, this process takes a while. For most people, this we'll take at least 30 minutes but can be delayed up to 2 hours.
Buccal troches, in contrast, directly infuse the ingredients of the troche into your bloodstream via the cheek mucosa. This bypassing of first pass metabolism means that you’ll have a reliable onset of action of 15 to 30 minutes and none of the troche ingredients will lose their potency.
Plus, as an added bonus, troche ingredients have a quick path to the brain given its close proximity. This is amazing for nootropics that turn your brain on and just as awesome for troches that relax you, decrease pain, help you sleep, and more!
This is essential for dosing and titration. Often the mantra with any supplement or medication is to start slow and titrate up and until you reach your optimal dose. This is the case with troches too and easy to do because they are scored!
When you’re ready to #buccalup, here are the 5 easy steps to make to optimize the experience.
Decide on your starting dose and cut the troche.
Place the troche between your gum and upper cheek.
Let it fully dissolve.
Feel the troche start doing it’s magic in 15 to 30 minutes.
Enjoy the ride for 3 to 5 hours.
Blue Cannatine, our flagship nootropic, contains a carefully crafted combination of methylene blue, hemp crystals, caffeine, and nicotine. Most Blue Cannatine users (smurfs as we affectionately call them) use a ½ troche for their optimal dose. This dose launches them into flow with a massive increase in productivity, focus, memory, and verbal fluidity.
Just Blue, our pure 16mg methylene blue troche is our mitochondrial optimizer, improving energy production and protecting cells from damage. Like Blue Cannatine, it is also easily titrated from as little as a quarter to a full troche with most Just Blue users using ½ troche at a time as well.
Quiet your mind, relax, and feel your stress/tension melt away. And, as your stress melts away, enjoy performing better in all you do—from the boardroom to the bedroom. We are talking about sleep!

More colorful and massively therapeutic, buccal troches are on their way too. #buccalup
