What is Water Soluble CBD or Nano?
Nano-CBD (short for Nano-Emulsified) is the result of a revolutionary, patent-pending process that shrinks the size of a CBD molecule down to the nanometer size. As a comparison, a regular CBD crystal, like we use in our isolate products, is approximately 4.44 micrometers in size (or 4,444 nanometers). Our CBD is more than 400% smaller – recently tested between 5 and 17 nanometers.

When regular CBD molecules are ingested, much of the dosage is lost or wasted as the particles are too large to be absorbed through places like the stomach and intestines, (gastrointestinal system), the glands in one’s mouth (sublingual ingestion), the pores in one’s skin (epidermal absorption) or even via the ‘classic’ method of ingestion – smoking is imperfect (though technically the most efficient, it comes with it own health-adverse side effects). To be noted: this is something that occurs with almost everything the human body ingests and is far from limited to natural substances, let alone nutrients and even common pharmaceuticals like Advil.
More so, what makes edible’s like gummies, or capsules so inefficient is the limited amount of lipid carriers within one’s digestive system. Lipid carriers are required to carry (go figure!) CBD to the bloodstream. Much of CBD is wasted when ingested this way as when the lipid carriers are gone, the leftover CBD just goes to waste.

Nanotechnology is the ability to break down molecules into smaller particles. The purpose of this is to allow the body to absorb the molecules more efficiently. The bioavailability of CBD is increased when the body absorbs smaller particles. This is good for athletes who need instant muscle pain relief. Nanotechnology also allows CBD molecules to bind with water molecules instead of fat. This allows CBD to become soluble (dissolvable) in water.
Bioavailability means the percentage of effectiveness the supplement or medication will have in the body after it is administered. Depending on the type of administration and other factors will determine how much your body will absorb that medication or supplement.
You can use water-soluble CBD in anything that has a water base. Smoothies, coffee, flavored carbonated water, tea, etc., are examples of what you can put your water-soluble CBD in.
The two main differences are the size of the CBD molecules and the carrier used to formulate the product. As mentioned before, nanotechnology allows CBD molecules to be broken down into smaller particles. CBD is fat-soluble. Nanotechnology allows CBD to be soluble in water. CBD oils are formulated with oils such as MCT or hempseed oil. Water-soluble CBD is formulated with water.
Both CBD oil and water-soluble CBD have one thing in common, the main ingredient CBD. All CBD is the same. Some research has shown that water-soluble CBD is more potent than CBD oil because of how small the molecules are which can offer a higher concentration of CBD. Studies have yet to prove this, because there are many other factors that can be taken into consideration.
Because research shows that water-soluble CBD may be more potent than CBD oil, it is recommended to start with smaller doses of water-soluble CBD and monitor the effects to see what works for you.
Yes, you can put water-soluble CBD directly into your mouth or on your skin.
Water-soluble CBD should be stored in a cool, dry place. For optimal shelf-life keep refrigerated.
Water-soluble CBD needs to be shaken well before use. If the cloudiness does not clear after being shaken, your water-soluble CBD may have been contaminated or has gone bad.
Depending on it is stored, water-soluble CBD has a shelf life of 12 months.
CBD can remain in your blood system for four to six hours.
If you travel Canada-wide, you can travel with any CBD product. Please check the laws in the country of travel to be sure they allow CBD.
It is highly recommended to consult your physician before using CBD with other medications.
Yes, CBD can be used topically for issues like skin irritations or muscle and joint pain. Infused your favorite creams with CBD to help with inflammation or dry skin.
Yes, water-soluble is safe for pets to use as well. Check out our CBD oil pet products for more information.
If you have taken too much CBD, you will feel lethargic and may have an upset stomach or diarrhea. Discontinue use if you are feeling any of those side-effects.
