What is Nanotechnology?
Nanoscience and nanotechnology are the study and application of extremely small things and can be used across all the other science fields, such as chemistry, biology, physics, materials science, and engineering. In simple terms, nanotechnology is the scientific process used to create smaller, more easily absorbed particle. Nanoparticles are manufactured for improving the delivery of active ingredients in a given product. Nanotechnology isn’t exclusive to CBD or cannabis. In fact, you can find a number of beauty products, medications, and supplements that have been nano-emulsified. However lately, nanotechnology has become a topic of fascination as it relates to CBD.
Nanotechnology and CBD
Nano-emulsified CBD particles can pass through the bloodstream much easier and is considered by a growing number of scientists and industry professionals to be the best method for CBD absorption and overall product effectiveness. Products created with nanotechnology offer better bioavailability–bioavailability refers to the amount of CBD actually absorbed by the body, as opposed to excreted as waste.
Emulsions can be macro, micro, or nano, according to dispersed phase particle size. Practically speaking, the smaller you can break up your cannabinoid, the more it will be able to penetrate your tissues alongside water. Anubhav Pratap Singh, PhD, an assistant professor of food processing at the University of British Columbia stated that, “As the particles get smaller and smaller, the microparticles still behave very similarly to the macroparticles, but as we reduce the particles to a few hundred nanometers, some properties of the particles are completely different than the old particles…[for instance], they can pass through gaps that they were unable to [pass through] before. So we try to take advantage of this in different forms.”
The Ounce’s water soluble CBD Nano Drops are crafted with nano technology! Try this versatile and discrete way to supplement your body with the CBD it needs. Because our bodies are comprised of mostly water, water-soluble CBD is absorbed by the body more readily than CBD oil. Simply add drops to ANY beverage and feel the difference!
