As an addition to my series on nano CBD, it’s only appropriate to answer the following customer and patient questions that pertain to nano CBD, the creation of nanoemulsions, and share examples of recommended nano CBD products.
The integration of nanoscience and nanotechnology with CBD (cannabidiol) product design and development has had a powerful effect on patient experiences and satisfaction levels. Currently, in 2020, sales of nano CBD products are dramatically increasing among all demographics, and in all 50 States as more people become aware of its existence.
Over the last few years, the U.S. National Institute of Health has published numerous clinical studies on both traditional and nano-forms of CBD. One published in 2018 called “New Formulation Based on Pro-Nano Dispersion Technology, Improves Oral Cannabinoids Bioavailability in Healthy Volunteers” showed a 131% increase in oral bioavailability over traditional CBD isolate and/or hemp oil.
This information will reference clinical studies as well as my own data gleaned from over 4 years of personal experience with hundreds of our visitors, members, physicians, medical professionals, and patients with whom I’ve been able to counsel as author and publisher of Cannabis Animus.
CBD is non-intoxicating and reported to ease a wide range of conditions, and consumers are flocking to the cannabinoid to help relieve chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia, and even skin conditions like psoriasis and acne. Even restaurants and cafes are jumping in on this wellness trend, adding it to smoothies or mocktails for a few extra bucks, while chefs are adding CBD to their menus (though officials in cities like New York are cracking down on the practice). Even mainstream stores like Walgreens and CVS are jumping on the bandwagon, stocking their shelves with CBD products.
this is the nano CBD cocktail I made with grapefruit and rosemary. I am with the company so I did some promo shots for them because I am a nice lady who would like to be rich one day pic.twitter.com/sGrnNzaFFY— mommy’s special computer time (@sistersleaze) December 31, 2019
The technology used in Nano CBD isn’t new.
And this is assuming that the CBD product in the bottle is exactly what’s reported on the label, something that some CBD companies are wont to do. In 2019, the FDA issued several warning letters to CBD firms for products that did not contain the amount of CBD they purported to contain, and for using language that suggested CBD could cure, treat, or prevent disease, a big FDA no-no.
What this means is that, theoretically, a person who consumes nano CBD as opposed to regular CBD may feel the effects more quickly. Dr. Mary Clifton, an NYC-based MD specializing in internal medicine, is also a CBD and cannabis expert and has worked with medical marijuana patients for more than 20 years in Michigan and New York State respectively.
Devit-Lee zeroes in on how people consume cannabis compounds generally as potentially altering its bioavailability regardless of formulation. “The way the problem [with nanoemulsion] is often framed is ironic because it’s framed around potency,” he said. “When you eat CBD, if you take it first thing in the morning before food, you might absorb 3-6 percent. If you take it with a fatty food, you might absorb more of it.”
