What is water soluble CBD?
Water soluble CBD is CBD extract infused in a medium that’s fully water soluble. CBD in its natural state dissolves in oil but not water, which is why you can find products like CBD oil tinctures. But cbdMD has created a CBD tincture that dissolves completely in water using nanoencapsulation technology, which puts tiny amounts of SCBD extract inside microscopic shells that bond with CBD on the inside but also diffuse in water. This makes it perfect for making CBD-infused drinks at home, and it also absorbs rapidly when you put it directly in your mouth. There’s no oily residue, just pure CBD goodness!
What are the benefits of water soluble CBD?
Water soluble CBD provides the same benefits of CBD that you can get from other CBD products, including relaxation, everyday stress management, maintenance of healthy sleep patterns, and recovery from exercise. The fact that it’s water soluble provides a couple of added benefits. For one, it’s easier for your body to absorb than an oil-based product is, so you don’t need to hold it under your tongue before swallowing to feel the benefits quickly, as you do with an oil tincture – you can just swallow it immediately.
Secondly, water soluble CBD blends well with food and drinks that don’t have any fat in them. So you can have your CBD coffee or tea black without having an oily film on top.
How long does it take for water soluble CBD to work?
Speed is one of the advantages of water soluble CBD compared to CBD oil. Your body is already mostly water, so you can absorb water-soluble substances quickly without having to break them down the way you would in a product that’s infused in oil. So you can usually start to feel the benefits of water soluble CBD about 30 minutes after taking it, although the exact time depends on your physiology and other factors.
Keep in mind that you might not feel the full benefits of a CBD product after just one use. CBD builds up in your system over time, so we recommend taking the product daily for 30 days to assess its impact. If you don’t achieve the desired results, try increasing the serving size gradually.
Is water soluble CBD the same as nano CBD?
Not entirely. Water soluble CBD products necessarily involve some form of nano CBD, because in its natural state pure CBD is not water soluble. That means the CBD has to be coated or encapsulated at the molecular level to become water soluble, which is commonly called nanotechnology because of its extremely tiny size.
With that said, not all nano CBD products are water soluble. Some companies put nano CBD in oil because users like the way it makes them feel rather than because they need a water soluble product. Therefore, you can’t assume that all nano CBD products will dissolve in water.
Is nano CBD better?
That’s a matter of opinion. A lot of people like CBD because it’s sourced from nature, so they prefer minimally processed products like full spectrum CBD oil that keep the CBD and other compounds close to what you’ll find in the hemp plant. Nano CBD is preferable if you want to take advantage of the latest technology to make CBD water soluble and easier for your body to absorb. Everyone’s physiology is a little different, so you might want to try both to see what you like best!
Which is better: regular CBD or water soluble CBD?
That depends totally on your preference. Regular CBD, which is usually found in oil-based products, is closer to its natural form and also goes well in CBD recipes that include oil or fat. Because it requires less processing, you can also usually get it at a lower price.
Water soluble CBD is pricier, but it’s better if you like your CBD in water-based beverages. Your body can also absorb it more quickly because it doesn’t have to break down the oil to get to the good parts. So while we recommend holding a CBD oil tincture under your tongue for 30 to 60 seconds before swallowing for fastest results, a water soluble tincture works just as quickly without the extra step.
What is nano CBD used for?
There are two main reasons to use nano CBD: because you can make water-based and water soluble products with it, and because it’s theoretically easier for your body to absorb. Our water soluble CBD tinctures take advantage of both qualities: our tincture is easy to dissolve into water or any water-based beverage that you want to spike with CBD, and it also makes a great fast-acting product if you prefer to take your CBD straight.
What is nanotechnology?
Nanotechnology involves engineering matter at the molecular or atomic scale – in other words, incredibly tiny! This has all kinds of applications in many different sectors, but for our purposes it means that we can make CBD products that fit a wide variety of consumer needs. With our nanoencapsulation technology, we’ve found a way to make CBD water soluble without sacrificing any of its benefits. Try our tinctures and find out for yourself!
