What is CBD bioavailability and why is it important to understand?
If you use cannabidiol (CBD), bioavailability is an important concept to understand. Depending on the treatment you are undergoing, the compound may be more effective if given in a specific way.
Bioavailability is basically the ability of a drug or other substance to be absorbed and used by the body. It is related to the degree to which a particular substance reaches the intended site of action. A compound administered orally or sublingually (under the tongue), for example, has to travel through various parts of the body before it reaches the bloodstream, different from medication administered intravenously.
It is important to know this because a substance will only have an effect if it can be absorbed by the body. Knowing the bioavailability of a product you have purchased is the key to understanding its effectiveness.
In order to be effective, CBD has to reach your endocannabinoid system. This means it first needs to be absorbed into your bloodstream.
And how effective are Golden CBD's products in relation to bioavailability?
Not all CBD is the same. At Golden CBD+, we always remind the consumer that our dosages are more accurate because the formulation is pre-dissolved in water, resulting in up to 8x more bioavailability.
Like most plants, hemp is packed with oils. This means that extracted CBD oil is not water-soluble in its natural form. CBD is a hydrophobic (water-fearing) substance. Subsequently, conventionally prepared CBD oil has extremely limited water-solubility and is not readily bioavailable. By using our proprietary Water Soluble Technology (WST), Golden CBD+ solves this problem. Our unique process results in a liquid CBD product that is significantly more bioavailable than conventional CBD oil. Our nanoemulsion is rapidly effective.
