Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the compounds found in cannabis plants that are believed to have medicinal properties. In the past few years, research and trials are known to demonstrate that CBD products can help in the treatment of conditions such as seizures, chronic pain, anxiety, arthritis, and many other illnesses. As such, many people suffering from such conditions are prescribed CBD products.
The most common method of using CBD products is to consume them orally. And if you’ve used or been prescribed CBD products, then you might have heard of CBD absorption or the term ‘absorption rate.’ So what exactly does it mean, and how does it affect the cost and efficiency of a CBD product? Read on to find out.
CBD is most commonly consumed in the form of CBD oil. But our body is made primarily of water, and oil doesn’t readily dissolve in water. As a result, our body absorbs fatty compounds like CBD oil with the help of certain molecules that attach themselves to the CBD oil compounds.
These molecules then enter the bloodstream and enter our system. But not all CBD oil that we consume will be absorbed in this process. Thus, an absorption rate is a percentage of the consumed CBD oil that is actually absorbed by our body.
Most of CBD products available these days have a low absorption rate. In general, only 10-20% of the CBD oil that we consume is absorbed by the body. So, if someone is prescribed to take five drops of CBD oil, their body is only absorbing one drop worth of CBD while the other four drops are wasted.
Even if you consider that a CBD product has around 25% absorption rate at best, you’re only getting one-fourth of the benefits. And in terms of money, you’re paying four times more for the product than what you’re getting from it.
The good news is that there are some CBD oils in the market whose absorption rates range from 80-100% and opting for products that have a high level of CBD absorption is a better deal.
Now that you know how low absorption rates decrease the efficiency of CBD oil and make you pay four times what you should be paying, why not try some of our premium CBD products?
