nano enhanced cbd oil

It is a pretty crazy amazing! Typical absorption of CBD/Hemp oil is poor, with only about 10% uptake in the GI tract. That means 90% of what you consume is basically wasted.

When it comes to my health, I always choose the products that are the safest, that are the most bioavailable, and that won’t empty my wallet.

So what’s the bottom line? Why is Nano Enhanced CBD/Hemp oil superior to CBD oil?

Whoa. right? So what makes this Nano Enhanced CBD/hemp oil work so well? And what is this Nano business anyway? The formation of a Nano Enhanced CBD/hemp oil extract produces particle sizes below 100nm, which some people would call nanotech just because of the size. These lipid particles are very similar to particles the body makes, called chylomic.

How so? Liposomal delivery brings the power of intravenous therapy into convenient oral delivery. If you know anything about intravenous therapy, you know that whatever is going into your veins is getting dispersed in record time and in the most concentrated amount possible.

Kurek adds, “Nano CBD is a CBD molecule packaged in nano-carriers that are the size of about 100 nanometers — or one-billionth of a meter — which allows the “package” to stay in the body for a longer time and to slowly release the intact CBD in the targeted tissue.” To illustrate his point, he mentions a 2017 study that reported a 600% increase in bioavailability of oral Nano CBD compared to CBD in a rat model.

Dr. Itzhak Kurek, Ph.D., is the co-founder and CEO of Cannformatics, a Northern California biotech company using saliva metabolomics technology to personalize medical cannabis treatment. Weedmaps spoke with Kurek to learn more about nanoparticles and the science behind them.

The technology used in Nano CBD isn’t new.

But nano CBD exists in a world with such a confounding range of CBD products available that can be found in the oddest of places — like the neighborhood bodega, alongside the condoms and Five Hour Energy packets — it begs the question: Is nano CBD a genuine innovation, or a gimmick to help companies differentiate themselves from the pack?

Like any trend, nano CBD has its skeptics.

Another area of concern lies in the safety of nanoparticles — when particles are made smaller, there may be unintended consequences. The increased use of nanotechnology in biomedicine, agriculture, and consumer products has led to the rise of nanotoxicology, the study of how engineered nano devices and structures may affect people. In reporting an explainer on weed wine for Weedmaps News, Josh Lizotte, founder and CEO of Rebel Coast, cautioned against the process of using nanoemulsions in cannabis-infused wine because “we don’t know the health effects of nanotechnology, and how such small particles [interact with] the body.”
