In this day and age, when it comes to marijuana, you can smoke it, eat it, and drink it. But now there's a new way to consume marijuana: strips that dissolve in the mouth.

This is thanks to top Canadian marijuana stock Aurora marijuana (NYSE:ACB), which announced Tuesday that it has launched cannabinoid-infused "sublingual wafers" -- i.e., thin strips meant to be held under the tongue until they dissolve to nothing. The strips are aimed at medical marijuana users and will be sold on the Canadian market.

According to Aurora, the new offering "advances yet another innovative offering to our growing portfolio of high quality, medical products that we offer our patient base, and is testament to our industry leading ability to work with technology partners and regulators to bring new form factors to market rapidly."

Aurora claims the strips have several advantages over other means of ingestion. Among these are quick consumption (five to 15 seconds, the company says) and the ability to be taken orally without having to drink water or to swallow. Such features make Dissolve Strips appropriate for patients who have difficulty taking medicine in traditional ways.
