To start, let’s talk about cannabis. Cannabis is an umbrella term covering hemp and marijuana plants, which is why enthusiasts may use the terms interchangeably. The plant consists of several cannabinoids. Two distinct ones are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). THC is known for the infamous trait of getting you ‘high,’ but it comes with several benefits. CBD, on the other hand, shares none of THC’s psychoactive traits but makes up with plenty more benefits.
What is water-soluble CBD
The compounds of the cannabis plant, namely tetrahydrocannabinol and cannabidiol, are hydrophobic. It means they repel water and don’t blend easily, bearing similar to the common term ‘oil and water do not mix,’ and CBD is not out of the ordinary with this. This led to the innovation of water-soluble CBD.
A reason why the recent development of CBD tinctures has gained so much popularity is because of its ability to work effectively and almost instantly. To use it is pretty simple as well. All you need to do is place the CBD oil on your tongue for 1-3 minutes without swallowing it. The mouth’s different membranes absorb it, from where it makes its way to your bloodstream.
Another interesting fact is that consuming CBD oil without swallowing it (i.e., sublingually) allows it to deliver most quickly. Because it does not go through the liver and entire digestive tract before working, making its way to your bloodstream and benefitting you with all its traits.
Benefits of water-soluble Hemp/CBD
In contrast to regular CBD oils and tinctures, a water-soluble CBD opens consumers to wider choices on consuming their CBD. In most cases, water-soluble CBD is available in pills, soft gels, and capsules. These products are quite easy to use and include the following benefits:
- Bioavailability: High bioavailability is a sign of the many nutrients absorbed in a product. A product with high levels of CBD refers to having a high rate of CBD concentration, which can be absorbed into the bloodstream easily. Not only is it economical, but it contains all the full benefits of CBD.
- Consistent Dose: You do not have to worry about the dosage you get as each capsule contains a fixed dosage. This benefit takes the guesswork out of consuming CBD. Every pill, softgel, or capsule all include a certain amount of CBD that stays consistent throughout.
- Effective and convenient- Not only are these pills effective, but they are also convenient and come in a wide range of options to choose from. Regardless of what you opt for, whether it’s a pill or capsule, you can easily carry this pharmaceutical drug (like any other) and use it whenever required.
