In recent years, cannabidiol (CBD) has gained immense popularity among individuals seeking natural supprot for health.. People are drawn to CBD's potential to reduce stress, improve sleep, increase focus, and provide an overall sense of well-being.
However, amidst the growing popularity of CBD, it's important to understand that not all CBD products are created equal, and not all delivery methods are equally effective. Namely, CBD oil has become an increasingly sought-after option. Yet, it may come as a surprise to learn that CBD oil may have little to no effect on the person taking it.
The reason lies in the nature of our bodies, which are primarily composed of water. Since oil and water do not mix well, the absorption of oil-based CBD can be significantly hindered. As a result, the potential benefits of CBD may not be fully realized.
In this blog, we will delve deeper into the issue of CBD absorption and explore why CBD oil may not be the best choice. We will also highlight the benefits of water-soluble CBD and explain how it can overcome the challenges of poor absorption. Additionally, we will provide you with other essential tips to ensure that you get the most out of your CBD experience.
One of the challenges of traditional CBD is its insolubility, however, it dissolves readily in oil, is its oil-soluble nature. Our bodies are mainly water-based, which makes it difficult for the body to absorb oil-based substances like CBD oil. This means that the amount of CBD our bodies can actually absorb and use may be much lower than we expect.
Poor Bio-Availability Means You're Not Getting as Much CBD
This issue is compounded by poor bio-availability, which refers to the amount of a substance that can be absorbed and used by the body. When ingesting CBD oil, most of the CBD may be lost during digestion, which reduces the amount of CBD available for our body to use.
This poor bio-availability may be a reason why traditional CBD oil solutions often don't provide the desired effect. So, does that mean that all CBD won’t work? Certainly not! In the next section, we will highlight what to look for when shopping for CBD.
By formulating CBD to dissolve easily in water, we can increase its bio-availability and make it easier for the body to absorb. This means you may experience better results with water-soluble CBD compared to traditional CBD oil solutions.
At NextEvo Naturals’ our team of healthcare and R&D veterans have found the secret to helping CBD work with your body, not against it. Our proprietary SmartSorb™ Technology improves the bioavailability of CBD, so that more CBD gets into your system, in as little as 10 minutes. This allows a greater amount of CBD to be delivered to your body, vs. other brands where 90% is destroyed by the digestive process.
In fact, one capsule of NextEvo Premium Pure CBD with SmartSorb™ is equivalent to 4x the amount of CBD in typical oil-based formulations.
In addition to using water-soluble CBD, the next section covers tips you can incorporate to make sure you are getting the most from your CBD experience.
Here are some essential tips to help you get the most out of your CBD experience:
Take the Proper Serving Size
Finding the right serving size is key when it comes to CBD. We recommend starting with a low dose, around 10mg, and gradually increasing by 5-10mg until you've reached a maximum of 120mg per day. It's important to find the right dosage for your unique needs to experience optimal benefits.
Give It Time
Unlike THC, CBD often doesn't provide an immediate effect. It's important to give CBD time to take effect and be patient with it. We suggest giving it 4-6 weeks at the maximum dose to determine if it's benefiting you or not.
Buy from Reputable Brands
As we’ve discussed in this blog, not all CBD is created equal, and it's important to buy from reputable brands that prioritize quality and safety.
Some brands have been warned by the FDA for exceeding the legal THC limit, and many incorporate hempseed oil, rather than hemp itself, which may have little to no benefit for your body.
Make sure you're buying from third-party tested, reputable brands to ensure a safe and effective product.
Ensure You're Not Taking Medications that Interact with CBD
CBD can interact with certain medications, so it's important to talk to your healthcare provider before using CBD, especially if you're already taking other medications. Your healthcare provider can advise you on potential interactions and help you develop a safe and effective plan for incorporating CBD into your routine.
Have Realistic Expectations
CBD may provide subtle benefits that build over time. It's essential to conduct research to understand CBD's potential benefits and set realistic expectations for its effects. Slight improvements can still be impactful, so we suggest tracking your personal experiences to gauge CBD's impact, even if it's a subtle one.
At NextEvo Naturals, we understand the need for reliable and effective CBD products. Our commitment to quality, safety, and innovation has led us to develop water-soluble CBD formulations that are proven to enhance absorption and optimize results.
By utilizing SmartSorb™ Technology and thorough third-party testing, you can be sure that our products provide a safe, effective, and easily-absorbed form of CBD that's proven to work. Our regular and extra strength CBD products also empower you to select the appropriate daily dose for your needs and specific condition.
