What is Nano?
Nano-CBD (short for Nano-Emulsified) is the result of a revolutionary, patent-pending process that shrinks the size of a CBD molecule down to the nano-meter size. As a comparison, a regular CBD crystal, like we use in our isolate products, is approximately 4.44 micro-metres in size (or 4,444 nanometers). Our CBD is more than 400% smaller – recently tested between 5 and 17 nanometers.
Why? Tell me More!
When regular CBD molecules are ingested, much of the dosage is lost or wasted as the particles are too large to be absorbed through places like the stomach and intestines, (gastro intestinal system), the glands in one’s mouth (sublingual ingestion), the pores in one’s skin (epidermal absorption) or even via the ‘classic’ method of ingestion – smoking is imperfect (though technically the most efficient, it comes with it own health-adverse side effects). To be noted: this is something that occurs with almost everything the human body ingests, and is far from limited to natural substances, let alone nutrients and even common pharmaceuticals like Advil.
More so, what makes edible's like gummies, or capsules so inefficient is the limited amount of lipid carriers within one's digestive system. Lipid carriers are required to carry (go figure!) CBD to the blood stream. Much of CBD is wasted when ingested this way as when the lipid carriers are gone, the leftover CBD just goes to waste.
A rough guide as to efficiency (bioavailability) via ingestion-method of Traditional, Oil-Based CBD products:
So WHY…? The molecular size of Nano can allow for up to 95% Efficiency in Gastro-Intestinal, Sublingual, and Transdermal Application!
What are the Advantages of a 95% Bioavailability / Efficiency?
Water Soluble: There are more ways to consume this product. Regular CBD is fat-soluble which is why they’re always found in oils. Nano is water soluble which means it is much more versatile! Our bodies are mostly water, and much of the food and drinks we ingest are too! This allows our Nano to be mixed with water, shakes, coffee, food… pretty much anything.
Our formula also has added lipid carriers, which make it IDEAL for dropping into beverages.
Additionally, this allows for a more versatile product line. Transdermal applications are now realistic: Lotions and skin creams, rollers for pain relief, and more
Less is More: When a 15mg dose of our regular tincture is taken sublingually, only about 5mg is truly absorbed; its really a 5mg dose. With Nano, only 5mg is needed to get that same approximate dose!
Rapid Relief: As Nano is absorbed much more efficiently, the effects of one’s dose are noticed at a much more rapid rate! Finding your appropriate dose is much easier when you can experience the benefits faster.
