CBD or cannabinoids are a result of the distillation and extraction of the oil from the cannabis plant materials. They are used in a variety of ways including vaping. In some instances, the oils are dissolved in another product and ingested. It will vary according to the reason that the patient is taking the CBD and the potency required.
CBD is directly extracted from Hemp as opposed to the cannabis which extracts THC. Although they are directly related, they are slightly different in concentration and form and perform differently in the medical realm.
The main reason to extract the oils is to remove the non-active components of the plant materials themselves
Oils also get into the system more quickly than edibles (which must first go through the digestive process) and thus give the patient a much quicker relief to the health issue at hand. While there are many different methods available to extract the oils, the CO2 method is the most preferred for a myriad of reasons. It’s less toxic and will render a more pure product.
Co2 or Carbon Dioxide is what is referred to as a supercritical fluid. This means that the co2 will convert into a liquid when it is put under pressure. It’s a pure chemical form that when naturally occurring, leaves absolutely no residue.
Per the Supercritical co2 Extraction protocol, it can ensure that the concentrate of the cannabis is pure and natural which makes this an excellent option for anyone who is in search of an all natural form of the cannabis oil.
The method of supercritical co2 extraction is safe and effective. It’s a standardized extraction method used for foods and dry cleaning as well as herbal supplements. Co2 is also a regularly added food additive. It’s used to produce carbonation in soft drinks as well as to take caffeine out of coffee and other products.
By utilizing the co2 extraction process, you’re allowing the compounds to be extracted with minimal damage as well as lower toxicity to the end product. By inserting the co2 into the vessel, it pumps through a filter whereby it takes the time to separate separating the CBD oil through the plant material once the pressure has been released. Most procedures choose the co2 extraction method for its reliability and stability.
Nanotechnology for Water Soluble CBD Oil
Most CBD pastes or oils being used today have a very strong taste and are slowly and poorly absorbed into the body. With Nano Technology you get up to 50x more bioavailable than CBD-rich hemp oil primarily for two reasons: it is water-soluble (humans are mostly water) and in nanoparticle size, passing through the cell wall effortlessly. You now need less CBD for the greater beneficial effects.
Restrictions of popular industry methods of use now
The existing methods of taking cannabis and cannabinoid products consist of:
- Breathing delivery methods: vapes are very popular.
- Oral ingestion methods into the GI tract of infused products, edibles, extract oils, tinctures, soft gel caps, and CBD Oral Sprays By Hemp Genix.
- Topical CBD Skin Care
- Super Oral delivery methods via sprays tinctures, extracts, and emulsion compositions, and cannabis-containing chewing gums.
Nanotechnology is the technology of the future, but the first generation of the technology is already here. It involves the manipulation of matter on atomic, molecular and supramolecular scales; thus bringing with it super-precision manufacturing. Manufacturing facilities from NF Skin, CosPro Labs, and IHL Manufacturing are utilizing Nano technology in CBD and Skin Care and lead the industry in CBD Nano Technology within Skin care and oral methods.
