How water soluble CBD can make CBD more available in the UK
Quality Wholesale water soluble CBD oil is a CBD-rich extract sourced from hemp and used by many drinks manufacturers and food producers. You can use water soluble to take with water during your workout or add to food and drinks in general.
There is more popular and cheaper forms of CBD like oil based. However, there are some limitations to CBD oil, some people simply don’t enjoy the taste. Of course, that’s a matter of personal preference.
One of the bigger issues though is bioavailability. You might be unfamiliar with the term but by the end of this article, I hope you will understand how fast CBD gets into the body and how much makes it to the cells that need CBD to recover or relax.
Water-soluble CBD is one of the inventive ways scientists have managed to create a CBD boom but most importantly it helps the body get around poor bioavailability.
What is water soluble CBD?
That’s what we’re going to get into, first a little about the main compound itself CBD as the cannabinoid remains the same, being water soluble main advantage is it increases the range of ingestion methods people can take CBD to help find one that they like best!
CBD is the abbreviation for cannabidiol, one of the multiple compounds found within the cannabis plant. It is extracted from cannabis plants in the form of an oil or powder which can be mixed into creams or gels.
CBD has quickly increased in popularity, following the most predominant cannabinoid compound, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
Unlike THC, CBD does not have psychoactive effects resulting in the soothing benefits of cannabis, without the feeling ‘high’.
What is bioavailability?
Bioavailability, as a term, doesn’t have anything specifically to do with CBD. It’s a term that can be applied to a range of drugs and compounds and how they relate to the body’s cells.
Bioavailability refers to the amount of a particular substance that can be absorbed effectively into the bloodstream. The higher the bioavailability, the more efficiently the compound can be assimilated into the body.
Bioavailability varies for a number of reasons in CBD. One of which is due to the ingestion method leading to something called ‘first-pass metabolism.’
First pass metabolism (first-pass effect) is a physiological effect where a compound’s strength is reduced before it reaches systemic circulation.
First pass metabolism just so happens to affect CBD when consumers orally. Bad news for CBD oil. But there are some creative ways of getting around this problem.
How to consume CBD?
There are multiple ways and how much CBD to consume, each of which have different bioavailabilities meaning the percentage of the CBD that is absorbed into the body. There are three main ways to take CBD – ingestion, inhalation, and topical application to the skin.
One of the most popular forms of consuming CBD, place the desired amount of the CBD oil under the tongue and leave it for approximately 5 to 10 minutes. CBD edibles have also become increasingly popular, these are food products that are infused with CBD.
The absorption rate of CBD edibles is lower as the CBD is transformed by the stomach acid and only then absorbed.
An effective and instantaneous method of consuming CBD, vaporising CBD flower or CBD e-liquid. A CBD vaporiser can be costly and vaporising may not be for everyone.
If you’re using CBD for muscle pain, topical CBD would be a good option. By applying the topical cream to the affected area, the cream will target the one area and work quickly. CBD has become increasingly popular among sportspersons to help ease sports injuries.
What is water soluble CBD ?
The term ‘water-soluble’ CBD is actually a bit of a misnomer. A better name might be something like ‘water-compatible’.
In the last number of years, scientists have refined a process of creating products that break the oil particles into smaller molecules. This substance is then subjected to emulsification and allowed to remain in this form.
However, these now-emulsified CBD molecules won’t actually dissolve in water. Instead, they can disperse throughout the water. For a supplier of UK water soluble CBD check out the wholesale section.
Benefits of water-soluble CBD
Faster activation times – Water-soluble products take less time to break down than oil-based counterparts.
More effective – Because the rate of bioavailability is higher there is less product wasted when it is ingested.
More versatile – Thanks to the wonders of science, cannabis molecules can be easier dissolved in the water-based drinks and beverages making.
Better value for money – by using a water-soluble product the bioavailability can increase by as much as 500%. This means you’d only need to use a 1/5th of the dosage to achieve similar results.
