We know CBD oil is popular in skincare, appearing in acne treatments, muscle-relaxers and pain-relief creams. But CBD is growing just as quickly as a dietary supplement, as the public uses CBD more and more to treat anxiety, inflammation, heart problems and neurological disorders such as epilepsy and multiple sclerosis.
Since the 2018 Farm Bill legalizing low-THC CBD products across the states, nearly seven percent of Americans are using cannabidiol. This number is expected to grow.
There is great potential for CBD to infiltrate medicinal science and drug formulation on a larger scale based on consumer demand and a growing number of case studies singing CBD oil’s praises. However, the extraction process for CBD is complex and the wrong form of nutritional CBD can have devastating effects, i.e. no effects.
If not water soluble, CBD oil and its health benefits cannot be absorbed by the human body. Solubility makes all the difference in the way the body processes nutrients.
For any drug to affect the human body, it must be present in the form of solution at the site of absorption. The human body breaks food down into its nutritive components and separates them with three actions: immediate use, storage and trash. The nutrients that get absorbed pass through the lining of the intestinal tract into the blood, which transports the nutrients to different sites for reassembly and use. Nutrients must be soluble, as water is the main component of blood plasma.
Solubility is a major hurdle for formulation scientists in the development of new chemical entities (NCEs) and generic development in the pharmaceutical industry at large. Over 40 percent of NCEs developed are practically insoluble in water. Pure Phytocannabinoid-Rich hemp oil is naturally water-insoluble in particular.
Our partner, Folium Biosciences, has addressed this issue with a patent-pending Phytocannabinoid-Rich (PCR) water-soluble formula for highly bioavailable CBD oil containing 20 percent CBD for maximum absorption.
The largest manufacturer of hemp-derived products, Folium Biosciences has formulated both a liquid and powder version of water-soluble CBD oil that when combined with solution, provides a high surface area for enhanced bioavailability by forming cannabinoid emulsion droplets with an average size of 25 nanometers.
They produce a superior, premium ingredient that has 0 percent THC and all of the nutritional benefits. Together, we strive to set the highest standard in CBD oil for nutrition products.
