The beauty of water-soluble CBD is that you can mix it into just about anything. With Zolt water-soluble mixie sticks, we recommend mixing the powder with 16oz of water (hot or cold) and stirring with gusto. We’ve heard from our customers that they use water-soluble CBD powder in lemonade, hot tea, smoothies, and even cocktails.
STRUCTURE AND TASTE
CHOOSING THE RIGHT WATER-SOLUBLE CBD POWDER
Full-spectrum hemp includes the full-range of cannabinoids in the hemp plant, including a trace level of THC (less than 0.3%). With full-spectrum water-soluble hemp, you get the full benefits of hemp’s active compounds that work together to achieve a balance of mind and body. This is called the entourage effect. Some CBD companies offer hemp CBD isolate and full-spectrum hemp product lines. On the Zolt site, you can identify our full-spectrum CBD by looking for those that are marked + after the product name.
Another key difference between water-soluble CBD vs. CBD oil is absorption rate. Water-soluble CBD is known to have a higher absorption rate than other forms of CBD. This is because the CBD has been broken down into even smaller particles that can be easily absorbed by the body. For example, when you take 20mg of CBD oil, you will typically absorb 10-20% of the CBD that was ingested. On the other hand, water-soluble CBD such as Zolt has bioavailability that is 5 times higher than other CBD formats. That means you can absorb 90% of the CBD you are ingesting with water-soluble CBD. Pretty cool, right?
Water-soluble CBD is CBD oil that has been broken through a 4-step process into fine crystalline particles, making it easier to be absorbed. Being easily absorbed, the CBD powder form of CBD extract can easily be ingested by mixing into drinks or food.
WHAT IS WATER-SOLUBLE CBD?
CBD, THC and many other oils can, however, be made water compatible if they are formulated as micro– or nanoemulsions, which are stable and visually homogeneous oil/water mixtures. The definitions of these emulsion types, important differences between them and methods by which they can be prepared are provided in our earlier blog post: “Achieving Stability of Oil-in-Water and Water-in-Oil Emulsion Products” as well as in this free eBook:
Besides being water-compatible and easily mixed into beverages at essentially any desired concentrations, cannabis extract nanoemulsions (nano-cannabinoids) provide exceptionally high bioavailability and therapeutic effect, and are absorbed by the body, either orally or through the skin, very rapidly and completely. The uptake starts to occur in the mouth almost immediately upon oral administration. This means higher potency and faster onset of action for lower doses.
Benefits of CBD and THC Nanoemulsions
The term “water-soluble CBD” has lately been extensively used throughout the medical cannabis industry. “Water-soluble” means able to homogeneously incorporate into water by separating into molecules or ions (dissolve like sugar, alcohol or salt). Oily substances, however, are repelled by water, which forces them to stay separate from it.
Cannabinoids (CBD, THC, etc.) are hydrophobic (water-hating) oily substances and, as such, not water-soluble. They can, however, be formulated to be water-compatible and appear water-soluble.
Both micro- and nanoemulsions can be prepared in concentrated forms that are fully miscible with water and, therefore, appear water-soluble. Both require the use of surfactants, which dilute the products, but are not otherwise a major concern, since several natural options are available with minimal negative effects. It is, of course, beneficial to use as little surfactants as possible. This is where nanoemulsions have a clear advantage: the amounts of surfactants used for their preparation are up to 10 times lower that those needed to make microemulsions.
