The Benefits of Water Soluble Cannabinoids
Most phytocannabinoids are naturally oil-soluble, meaning they don’t mix well with water. When oil-soluble cannabinoids are mixed into a water-based solution, they tend to cluster together and form uneven distribution throughout the mixture (or heterogeneity). This can lead to an inconsistent consumer experience and unfavorable taste.
Is water soluble CBD more effective?
To combat these problems, water soluble cannabidiol are created using a process known as “emulsion,” which creates an oil-like structure that the body recognizes as hydrophilic (water-friendly). When this happens, the body is able to easily absorb the CBD in the product and begin experiencing its benefits.
This is why the use of water-soluble cannabinoids has been so beneficial to the cannabis industry. It provides a better overall experience for consumers and allows companies to offer more precise dosing and consistent results.
In addition to improving the user experience, the creation of water-soluble cannabinoids also helps to eliminate problems like a lingering aftertaste that can be associated with some CBD oils and products when used in combination with food or dropped under the tongue. Water-soluble cannabinoids are much easier to dissolve in beverages and make the process of consuming cannabis far more convenient for consumers.
Water-soluble cannabinoids are also easier for labs to test. When analyzing a water-based CBD product, True Labs for Cannabis can use sophisticated equipment to detect the levels of active cannabinoids present in the mixture. This is an important step in ensuring the quality and consistency of cannabis products in the market and ensuring that they are safe for consumers.
