Everywhere you go the CBD craze seems to have taken hold, from the wonderful Canna Kitchen - the Brighton eatery who are rightly being recognised as a truly innovative restaurant for infusing their menu with all things Cannabis related, through to your local coffee house offering to add it to your ‘usual’!
What you may not realise is that by putting it directly into your cuppa every element of the Cannabis /hemp extract will be neutralised. Not only does the heat from the drink do this but the oil is meant to be taken under the tongue for a reason, because when you take it sublingually, for approximately 3 minutes, the vein under your tongue absorbs the CBD oil directly into the blood stream. If you don’t do this or if you take a drink before it has had time to be absorbed the remaining oil will get washed down in to the stomach where it will wiped out - so a total waste.
There are a couple of ways you can add it to your favourite beverage and get the benefits and these are:
A huge hit with hipster across the pond who want to work hard and play hard…..and get very little sleep! But they did have a point, if you want to make sure you protect this precious oil then mix it with an additional carrier like Coconut oil or butter to protect the molecules from the gastric juices. Then you have a chance of absorbing some of the CBD into your system. Check out how to make this drink at bulletproof.com
Water Soluble CBD
If you really want to ensure that you are going to receive all of the elements of a product of this type into your system then choose a Water Soluble CBD product.
Water Soluble CBD is a new, innovative and drinkable alternative to CBD oil, meaning it is completely absorbed in to the body and it comes now with a dropper cap rather than a pump for ease of use. You can add it to hot or cold drinks as, even though it is a lower dosage than our oil, you ingest the full amount of Cannabis extract.
Regular CBD products and cannabinoids are fat soluble and are therefore mainly degraded by the stomach if it is not absorbed under the tongue. With the oil there is always an amount that is lost down the side of the mouth and into the gastric system when taken under the tongue, whereas 1mg of our Water Soluble is the equivalent to 20mg of oil due to its bioavailability. If you would like to learn more about why we believe our water soluble is an innovation and what we mean by bioavailability you can read our blog which explains this in more detail.
This Water Soluble blend dissolves in any drink and makes dropping under the tongue a thing of the past. It also tastes a lot nicer. Since it is soluble in water, you can also use it in a nebulizer so that the active ingredients can be inhaled.
So please don’t be fooled, putting CBD oil directly into your drink is really a waste of your money and a good product!
