While oil-based CBD is the most popular product on the market, it doesn’t make the most of the ingredients. When you take CBD under the tongue as an oil drop, you’re only getting a max of 13-19% bioavailability. This means around 80% doesn’t offer an effect.
So what’s the solution? Our water-soluble CBD in an “active” state, meaning it can be easily absorbed into the bloodstream. This results in almost perfect bioavailability, making it incredibly effective.
In the nano-emulsification process, CBD is dissolved in a suitable carrier oil which remains liquid at a wide temperature range, including room temperature. The mixture of CBD and oil is blended with emulsifiers. These work at the interface of the oil and water to stabilize the droplet (emulsifiers are also referred to as surfactants, i.e. Surface Active Agents). This oil phase is added to water and mixed to form a coarse emulsion (stabilized droplets of oil dispersed in water). The coarse emulsion is then nano-emulsified with a high pressure emulsifier to create very small droplets (~250nm) which are stable over long periods of time without agglomerating (recombining), creaming (floating to the top) or sedimenting (sinking to the bottom).
Nano-emulsions are extremely stable and do not interact chemically with the beverage formulation
Emulsion-based formula will blend with almost any liquid or semisolid product (honey or topical)
High absorption in the body
This differs with each person, taking into account weight, height, and reasons for taking CBD. Initially, we recommend taking 3-4 drops of our 5% Water Soluble CBD per use and building your dose up gradually. For optimal results, best taken at regular intervals throughout the day.
Regular CBD oil products and cannabinoids are fat soluble and are therefore mainly degraded by the stomach if it is not absorbed under the tongue. With the oil there is always an amount that is lost down the side of the mouth and into the gastric system which means it doesn’t reach the bloodstream when taken under the tongue. 1mg of our Water Soluble is the equivalent to 8mg of oil due to its bioavailability.
One drop contains approx. 2mg CBD – Do not exceed the FSA recommended maximum daily dose of 70mg CBD. Following this guidance, you can then manage daily dosage based on what works best for you, including combining with other CBD products.
