Bioavailability increases also when you use the highest grade of CBD bud. The dispensary salesperson will be able to give information regarding is purity. Bioavailability is about two things – the potency of what you consume, smoke or vape and the method you consume, smoke or vape. So, when you are purchasing your CBD product, it is important to be attentive to the potency. Ask for the Certificate of Analysis (COA) of the product to confirm its potency.
CBD Bioavailability Goes Nuclear – In the Beginning
There are two ways to improve the bioavailability rate. One way to improve the bioavailability rate is to consume CBD sublingually that way it enters the metabolic system via the sublingual gland under the tongue. The CBD can be delivered in this manner with oil, tincture, spray or lozenge so that it can impact the body more quickly and effectively.
The second way to ingest CBD with the highest bioavailability is to eat it with foods that enhance bioavailability. A small study done at a University lab suggests that fatty acids taken with the CBD increase its bioavailability because they act as binding agents meaning that the dose of CBD is able to attach to them and be metabolized effectively into energy.
CBD Bioavailability Goes Nuclear – Considering 1st Pass
The 1st pass effect or 1st pass metabolism refers to drug metabolism if that drug is consumed orally. This also applies to CBD consumption even though not referred to as a drug. When CBD is consumed orally, its potency is greatly reduced before it reaches your systemic circulation. Part of the potency is lost during the digestive system process and part is absorbed in the liver and gut wall.
When a drug is swallowed, it is absorbed by the digestive system then through the hepatic portal and is carried through the portal vein to the liver. With some drugs, by the time it leaves the liver, there is only a small amount of the potency remaining. Where CBD does its work is when it reaches your circulatory system and meets up with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The 1st pass through the liver in any case greatly reduces the bioavailability of the drug or in this incidence we are talking about CBD.
CBD Bioavailability Goes Nuclear – Oral Consumption
Oral CBD such as liquid drops, capsules, tinctures, foods, and beverages may be among the most popular delivery methods for CBD, but it has the lowest bioavailability of all forms at between 6 to19% because it is fat-soluble which makes it a challenge for the body to absorb.
Digestive acids and enzymes may destroy part of the CBD taken orally before it has a chance to be absorbed. Peak levels of oral CBD tend to be lower than other delivery forms. Oral CBD does have a longer duration in the body or the “mean residence time”. CBD has also been found to lead to higher brain levels when compared to inhalation methods.
CBD Bioavailability Goes Nuclear – Inhaled Method
Inhalation is not only an efficient way to consume CBD but also a delicious way with lovely savors. Inhalation bypasses the digestive tract and liver so that the CBD can be readily absorbed through the thin membranes the lungs air sacs of the lungs. There are several ways to inhale CBD however, even with the high absorption, it can damage the lungs over time.
Smoking — The most basic inhalation form is smoking. In this case the cigarette of the hemp pre-roll contains unprocessed CBD-rich hemp buds. Smoking has a bioavailability of 31% and be in the system within three minutes. The half-life of smoked CBD averages 31 hours. The smoking does produce combustion which can irritate and damage the lungs.
Vaping — Vaping CBD hemp flower is a preferred delivery method for many and is a less irritating inhalation form. Vaping is done with a vaporizer pen drawing liquid CBD oil held in a cartridge past a heating element. The heating element produces a vapor that you inhale.
