How to make CBD Water Soluble

Making CBD Water Soluble with Deeper Green

It is part science and part art. The challenge is how to make it so that operators can create products that taste good, has a good mouthfeel, doesn’t have an aftertaste, is fast-acting, and potent. The following are the approaches in water-soluble infusions.

Make CBD Water Soluble

Water Soluble CBD: DEEPER GREEN™ Formulation

Deeper Green Technology – The Deeper Green process places an oil-based cannabinoid into a protective water-soluble shell. The shell is an FDA-compliant ingredient that is compatible with the mucosa in the body, which includes nose, mouth, lungs, and digestive tracts.

Adding Water Soluable CBDThis membrane-crossing permeability allows for infusion into the blood. This process delivers over 90% of the CBD contained in the Deeper Green infusion.

Nanoemulsions – Nanotechnology is the manipulation of materials on an atomic or molecular scale. Nanoemulsions work by breaking up molecules into tiny, nanoscopic droplets, usually between 10 to 100 nanometers, and using surfactants to bring down the surface tension of the water so that the droplets can mix into it better. Surfactant means surface active agent. They are utilized in every industrial area ranging from household detergents and food items to pharmaceuticals.

Microemulsions – Microemulsions operate on the same principle as nanoemulsions. Droplets, created through microemulsions, are usually between 100 and 5000 nanometers. Microemulsions require the use of more surfactants. Surfactants can create unpleasant taste, mouthfeel, and create side-effects with health implications. Taste profiles can include bitter and/or soapy.


CBD Bio-availability with Deeper Green

The main hindrance to CBD’s benefits is its low bioavailability. Low bioavailability is just another way to say the transfer of CBD into the bloodstream is small. That is why scientists have been looking for alternatives to increase the percentage that gets transferred. Listed below are the forms of infusion and their bioavailability rates.

Bioavailability based on Infusion

  • Oil infusion: Up to 20% – 10mg dosage = up to 2mg of CBD
  • Nanoemulsions: Up to 50% – 10mg dosage = up to 5mg of CBD
  • Microemulsions: Up to 50% – 10mg dosage = up to 5mg of CBD
  • Deeper Green Infusion: Over 90% – 10mg dosage = over 9mg of CBD

Scientists working on the Deeper Green™ formulations have produced a process to increase bioavailability without side effects.  And making CBD more water-compatible, makes it more bioavailable.

Scientific Explanation of How CBD Works in the Body – CBD is hydrophobic in its natural state, which means that it does not mix easily with water. Because of this, it takes as much as an hour to reach the bloodstream. The oil needs to be broken down in the digestive tract and then distributed throughout the body.  At the end of the process, only 20% or less of the CBD is extracted and enters the bloodstream.
