Nano CBD: The Benefits of Nanoprocessing
If you’re interested in CBD, you may have seen the terms “nanoprocessing” or “nano CBD” somewhere on the web. If nowhere else, you’ve probably seen them on our website, as we nanoprocess all our CBD products to ensure they’re of the highest quality possible. That sounds all well and good, you may be thinking, but what does nanoprocessing even mean? We’ll get into that and explain why nano CBD is superior to non-processed CBD below.
What is Nanoprocessing? How Does it Work?
Nanotechnology has gotten a lot of people excited for a long time due to its potential to more effectively deliver medication into the bloodstream, and by 2020 it has finally become a reality. In nanoprocessing, particles of CBD oil are broken into tiny droplets – made as small as possible – so that each droplet is as packed with CBD as possible.
Although nano CBD is a hemp isolate – meaning it’s pure CBD, the terpenes having been removed – it is very potent. CBD isolates are usually not as strong as “full-spectrum” CBD, which is what you get when the terpenes are left intact. However, through the process of emulsion, where CBD mixes evenly with water, we get a powerful mixture with high bioavailability (more on this below).
What are the Benefits of CBD That Has Been Nanoprocessed?
The main benefit of nanoprocessed CBD is that smaller droplets have a better chance of entering your bloodstream and interacting directly with cells – basically, it’s more efficient per gram than CBD oil that hasn’t been nanoprocessed. You get more bang for your buck, meaning you don’t have to use as much CBD oil to get the same effect. Nano CBD gives you a highly concentrated dosage with up to a 100% absorption rate as opposed to one that may have a much lower absorption rate.
What is Bioavailability and Why is it Important?
Bioavailability is just a fancy term for what percentage of a chemical that has been absorbed is available to be used by your body, i.e., to be broken down by enzymes. As we’ve discussed above, nanoprocessing maximizes bioavailability by fine-tuning the doses of CBD to enter the cells of your body.
More and more people are turning from smoking cannabis to ingesting it due to health concerns, but ingesting it normally has the drawback of reducing total bioavailability since it has to go through the stomach and liver. Nanoprocessing aims to bridge this gap so that ingesting cannabis can be more effective.
