Whenever CBD is being discussed in a forum or in an article, it will be usually about its use in treating a particular health condition or if CBD is effective. However, here we are going to discuss the latest invention in the world of CBD, which is CBD nanotechnology or CBD Nano. Is CBD nanotechnology something that works or is it just another CBD scam for making you buy CBD products? Let us find out more about CBD nano and determine if it is working. However, before that, we need to have an understanding of its bioavailability.
Bioavailability is a word that is used to describe the effectiveness of absorption of a particular substance in our body. We might assume that everything that we consume is absorbed completely, but that is not true. Only a portion of what we consume is absorbed by our bodies and this applies to food items and medicinal drugs. In the case of medicines, this happens on a microscopic level. The absorbed medication goes to the liver where it is broken down into more elements that can be used by the body.
An enzyme called CYP3A4 turns the conventional chemical composition of medicines into something that can affect our body. However, it is the bioavailability of medicine that determines the percentage of substance that our body can use. In the case of CBD, the bioavailability is typically low and it can be as little as 6% when consumed orally.
The limited bioavailability of CBD is known to manufacturers and they measure their CBD products so that you get the desired effect from using the product. However, this also means that if we increase the bioavailability of CBD, we need to have only far less CBD to get the same effect as very little CBD will be wasted by our bodies. Nanotechnology is one of the ways by which CBD manufacturers are trying to increase the bioavailability of CBD.
CBD nanotechnology involves reducing the size of CBD to nanoscopic dimensions. The idea behind CBD nano is that by shrinking CBD to nano sizes, the body will be able to easily absorb and break CBD apart into useable compounds. Nanotechnology is not just limited to CBD. Scientists have been exploring nanotechnology to increase the effectiveness of other medications. There have been studies done to find the effectiveness of CBD nano and it seems that CBD nanotechnology works.
