WHAT IS CBD?

NANO CBD — WHATS ALL THE TALK ABOUT?

With the fast growth of the CBD industry and constant advances in its technology, there are a lot of terms floating around that are unfamiliar, if not confusing, too many people. “Nano-Amplified CBD” is one of them. While the science and biological makeup of CBD is the subject of much research and scholarly articles, for its amazing health benefits, it can all be broken down into simple terms.

Nano-Amplified CBD starts with an all-natural botanical concentrated isolate that includes the cannabinoids and fatty acids found in hemp plants. Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of over 100 cannabinoids found in various concentrations throughout the different parts of the hemp plant, which is part of the Cannabiceae family.

This CBD is then sent to a lab for third-party verification of quality. Afterward, it is added to or infused into foods, liquids, nutritional supplements, topicals, and even cosmetics. Also, CBD contains no THC, so products made from the isolate are not psychotropic and cannot get you “high”.

NANO TECHNOLOGY — NANO-AMPLIFIES OUR CBD

Nano-emulsification is what makes all-natural CBD become water-soluble and more bio-available. Nano-amplified CBD, dramatically affects the absorbability of large, fat-soluble molecules like CBD. Typically with CBD consumer products, 90% or more of the CBD is wasted because the body simply cannot absorb it. That’s because CBD particles, like all phytocannabinoids, measure about 2,000 nanometers. Human cells can only absorb particles of 60-80 nanometers. A cell cannot fully utilize a particle larger than itself.

Nano-Amplified CBD products are an extremely absorbable form of cannabidiol. These molecules are all-natural, just made 100 times smaller by a proprietary process, as small as 16 nanometers according to recent lab results, meaning that there is literally no waste. The body can utilize virtually all of what you pay for!

Bottom line: the smaller particles created by nanotechnology mean dramatically better absorption.

  • Greater bioavailability

  • Use less of a given product for an even better result

  • CBD crosses the blood/brain barriers more efficiently

 

When you use nano-amplified CBD products – on your skin or in your body – you can count on better results

NANO-AMPLIFIED CBD VS CBD IN HEMP OR MCT OIL

Nano-Amplified CBD products which are water-soluble and more bio available are typically 50-90 percent more absorbed into the body.

For example, imagine;

Bottle A is nano based CBD at a concentrate of 250mg. Bottle B is CBD in Hemp, or MCT Oil and is a concentrate of 2,500mg. Which product actually delivers more CBD into the body? If you said Nano-Amplified CBD you are right. That’s because even at 10 times the strength Nano based CBD is better absorbed into the body and not flushed out as waste.

how do i take cbd?

CBD is available in several different forms. This allows people to tailor their method of use to their specific need. Here are the most common forms of CBD:

Oils and tinctures

These liquids, usually oils, are infused with CBD and placed under the tongue with a dropper. The oral mucosa is full of tiny capillaries that absorb the compounds quickly. Oils and tinctures are a good choice for anyone who can’t take pills or capsules.

Creams and lotions

CBD-infused topicals are used to treat muscle and joint pain. They can also treat some skin conditions, like eczema and psoriasis.

Capsules and pills

CBD capsules and pills are used for systemic treatment of seizure disorders and digestive issues. The Food and Drug AdministrationTrusted Source recently approved Epidiolex, the first high-potency CBD drug to treat seizure disorders.

There’s one drawback with capsule forms, though. The time from ingestion to onset of effect can take a while.

Edibles

Gummies are one of the most popular ways to take CBD. They’re affordable, portable, discrete, and tasty. There’s also no guesswork involved: You know exactly what dose you’re taking.

How much should i take?

You should generally start with a low dosage and go slow with increasing your dose. There may also be variations in actual CBD content between products. Use caution when starting a new package or switching dose forms.

According to Lindsay Slowiczek, PharmD, “It's important to start with a low dose until you know how your body will react to CBD. A wide range of CBD doses has been tested in clinical studies, but more evidence is needed before safe and effective dose recommendations can be made for specific uses."

 

"For now, use the product's recommended dose unless your doctor gives you the go-ahead to take larger doses," she continued. "People with certain health conditions, such as liver disease, may need lower doses to avoid serious side effects."

When considering dosage, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • If you’re using CBD for seizure treatment, talk with your doctor about the best product and dose.

  • Many oils come in 1 milligram per drop concentrations, so increasing dosage is straightforward. But be sure to read product labels closely to ensure you know what amount each drop provides.

  • Gummies can also come in standard doses, often 5 milligrams per gummy. But be sure to clarify this before changing your dose.

  • Vape oil dosing can also be tricky. It depends on exactly how much you inhale and the concentration of the vaping liquid.

  • Use creams and lotions sparingly at first.

Is CBD Legal? Hemp-derived CBD products (with less than 0.3 percent THC) are legal on the federal level, but are still illegal under some state laws. Marijuana-derived CBD products are illegal on the federal level, but are legal under some state laws. Check your state’s laws and those of anywhere you travel.

Cannabidiol or CBD is only one of more than 140 cannabinoids discovered and identified in the cannabis plant (Cannabis Sativa L.). CBD is the most abundant cannabinoid in hemp plants and it can be found in flowers and trichomes of every cannabis strain.

As we already said, CBD is the most abundant cannabinoid in hemp plant – from 0.5 to 3% of CBD can be found in (industrial) hemp plants. Whilst CBD is gaining on popularity, new strains are being developed, containing CBD to up to 25%, while simultaneously keeping THC below the legal limit of 0.2% (or 0.3% – depending on where you’re from).

High THC strains usually contain a very small amount of CBD, but again, new strains are being developed, enabling us to plant seeds that are said to produce up to 20% of both, CBD and THC.

Are these kind of CBD products safe?​

CBD products containing less than the legal limit of THC are safe in general. There are no worries about being “high”, paranoid, anxious or any other symptoms that are the consequence of high THC products. Even though the amount of THC is so low that it can’t cause high, it is more than welcome to be present in CBD products. Why, you ask? CBD and other cannabinoids give us the widest range of beneficial effects when consumed together – this is what we call entourage effect (which only one cannabinoid can’t achieve).

CBD AND THC - WHAT's ALL THE FUSS ABOUT?

THC is considered to be a “notorious” cannabinoid because its psychoactive effects are the main cause that cannabis use is despised and in many cases even prohibited.

Thankfully misconceptions and prejudices are slowly fading away, but the law still prohibits that THC levels are higher than 0.2% (or 0.3%).

CBD, on the other hand, is completely non-psychoactive and legal compound, that instead of central, has a major effect on the peripheral nervous system and immune system and does not cause the high. In general, we can say that CBD helps with balancing our endocannabinoid system which has a great impact on numerous brain functions (pain perception, movement, emotions, sleep, etc.).

HOW IS CBD PRODUCED?

As we already mentioned, CBD is most abundant in flowers of almost every cannabis strains. For millennia CBD and other cannabinoids were obtained by soaking cannabis in oils (hemp macerate), making teas, as well as by smoking – only then they didn’t know what CBD was or what cannabinoids were.

Nowadays, same methods for obtaining CBD are still in use, but technology and knowledge advanced from those times, leading to discoveries of new, more efficient methods of extraction.

The most efficient and the least “dangerous” method is supercritical CO2 extraction. With this method, the obtained extract is completely solvent-free and does not contain any harmful impurities, since the CO2 evaporates back into the container for reuse after the extraction.

A bit less efficient and a bit more dangerous extraction method is with use of alcohol (ethanol). It is said to be “dangerous” because, with improper handling, it may even cause an explosion, with the improper extraction process, alcohol can still be present in the final product. This type of method was mostly used for DIY extracts, but with the progression and development of technology, more and more companies are making large-scale extractions with this type of extraction.

Bhuthane CBD extraction is also quite common for DIY extracts. As the name itself says, this method uses gas (butane). Although it is the fastest extraction method, it is also the least efficient and the least “pure” method.
