One of the key challenges faced by companies producing CBD supplements, foods, and pharmaceuticals is the low absorption rate of the plant oil in the human digestive system. What many consumers (and most producers) of CBD do not realize is that the human body typically absorbs only 10-20% of the CBD contained in oil-based hemp extracts when orally ingested. This is due to high levels of non-soluble organic lipids (oil, fats and waxes) in hemp extract. That means that as much as 90% of orally ingested CBD does NOT enter into your bloodstream to deliver health benefits.
That is one of the reasons why most CBD products come as tinctures, chewables, vape oils, transdermal patches or other products, including suppositories: they use the parts of your body that are better at absorbing. However, such delivery systems range from non-traditional to highly inconvenient, limiting the number of people who are willing to purchase and consume CBD as a daily dietary supplement. Many people may prefer to get their CBD as a pill or food additive, the same way they get folic acid, vitamin E, calcium, fish oil or COQ10.
CBD Powder was designed to address the CBD absorption problem. CBD Powder is water-soluble, so it’s also soluble in the digestive tract, meaning higher bioavailability of the plant oils and thus more potency for the same amount of CBD.
