Absorption Issues

Each time typical CBD oil is used, 90-95% is not absorbed by the body.

Oil doesn't mix.  Therefore, when CBD oil is taken orally, it is not easily absorbed since our bodies consist of 65-70% water.

One way fatty compounds like CBD oil are given entrance is to encapsulate these compounds with a special molecule. On one side is a ‘fat-loving’ (lipophilic) end and on the other is a ‘water-loving’ (hydrophilic) end. The molecules form a sphere around the oil molecule and the lipophilic end attaches itself to the fatty compound This directs the hydrophilic end towards the outside and this allows the sphere (containing the CBD oil) to become solubilized in water which can then pass the mucous membrane and enter the bloodstream. This is the process of micellization.

To build these micelles the body needs time and energy. While the body works to encapsulate and absorb the CBD oil and other fatty components, the CBD is being destroyed by our stomach acid and by enzymes in our liver.

By creating micelle spheres in a laboratory, CBD can be absorbed almost instantly, passing through the mucous membrane which consists of 90-95% water.  Medication administered intravenously has a bioavailability of 100%.  Significant progress has been made understanding various aspects of a complex puzzle, including solubility, partition coefficients, absorption, metabolism, and excretion.

Poor oral bioavailability is a significant cause of failures in drug clinical trials and hindering the estimation of what dose will be needed to support the treatment of a condition. This is because compounds with low bioavailability, as CBD oil, can have highly variable exposures from test subject to test subject. If a compound has an average bioavailability of 5% or less,  which studies reveal about CBD,  it would easily vary in the range of 0.5–10%.  This is a 20-fold difference and is not acceptable for the therapeutic use of CBD.

More Than Just Water Soluble

Current developments call for a high demand of oral CBD formulations and products. In addition, oral consumption is not just a promising alternative to inhalation for consumers who are interested in the medicinal properties of cannabis, but also the better and preferred way to consume medicines and nutritional supplements by most consumers. Enhancing oral CBD bioavailability is an important development. Reducing waste and reaching nearly 100% bioavailability, users can now be assured that the CBD is being absorbed by their body.Reducing waste and reaching over 90% bioavailability assures users they are receiving the most out of the products they have.

Creating a water soluble CBD oil  is only one  reason for the benefits. Our natural technology mimics our own system to absorb oil and fatty components.

Beyond the medical use of CBD, is the ability to include CBD in a large array of foods, nutritional products, cosmeceuticals and beverages.

Combined with nanotechnology, in the range (~100 µm) adds another dimension to our proprietary method.

  1. Close to 100% absorption;
  2. Stable in critical environments;
  3. Stable in low concentrations; and
  4. Stable shelf life of 36 months or more

Numerous Application Possibilities:

  • Access into the beverage market
  • A wide array of foods
  • Consistent, measurable CBD control
  • Increased convenience and portability with drinks
  • Efficient way to consume CBD in drinks and foods.

Not Only for Cannabinoids

Beyond cannabinoids, application is useful for fat-soluble nutrients such as vitamin A, D, E and K,  Curcuma, Fish oil, Coenzyme Q10, Artemisinin and many more.
