Before I order or purchase anything, I always do extensive research into different options. When I was looking into the various delivery methods for CBD, the budtender at my local cannabis dispensary provided some very helpful information. He said that only about 10% of the particles in a serving of CBD oil is actually used by the body. Ten percent is not a lot for the amount I spend on it. The budtender at the dispensary explained that most of the cells of the body are only capable of directly absorbing particles between 60 to 80 nanometers in size. A nanometer is one billionth of a meter. These particles need to be super small. The cannabinoid particles of the vast majority of hemp oil are around 2000 nanometers. Taking CBD orally requires it to be broken down in the stomach before it can be absorbed into the bloodstream. Not only does this reduce the amount of CBD oil that’s providing results, but it takes longer to benefit from the effects. The method of the delivery makes a big difference in bioavailability of the CBD oil. By definition, bioavailability is the percentage of a substance that’s absorbed into the bloodstream after all the necessary processing is completed by the body. The dispensary offers a wide selection of popular products, including gummies, gel capsules and oils that aren’t all that good when it comes to bioavailability. They also offer an array of sublingual options, such as sprays lozenges, tinctures and concentrates. The CBD oil is placed under the tongue and is absorbed through the mucus membranes into the capillary bed beneath and directly into the bloodstream. This method provides a higher percentage of bioavailability than taking the CBD oil orally.
