cbd oil liposomal

In order to understand the advantages of liposomal delivery, you must understand the concept of bioavailability. Bioavailability denotes the extent to which a nutrient or a drug (in this case, cannabidiol CBD) is available to be used in the anticipated biological destination (e.g the endocannabinoid system). Bioavailability varies depending on how one consumes a constituent. For example, administration through the veins provides a hundred per cent bioavailability. This is essential when nurses and doctors are administering drugs and nutrients to patients.

Trillions of cells make our existence possible and help perform everything we do in everyday life. While each one has a particular function and is unlike any other, all body cells share similar cellular parts including a membrane. Cell membranes basically help a cell stay together – just like our skin contains our body. A cellular membrane is responsible for transporting compounds in and out of the cell as well as interacting with compounds floating by. Some compounds such as electrolytes get transported very efficiently. Unfortunately, this is not the case for CBD

What is Bioavailability?

Liposomes are water-soluble and fat-soluble. These unique features aid in providing molecules in liposomes to the intended destinations without any degradation.

CBD formulations that are administered through the mouth are very common. However, these formulations have quite a lower bioavailability compared to inhaled CBD formulations. This is because most of the oral CBD is wasted in the digestive system resulting in less than nine per cent bioavailability.

According to research, liposomes are generally safe for health. In fact, they allow excellent control and limit the toxicity of some substances. Experts continue to research them to identify the unique properties of lysosomes, especially in connection to CBD. In a current safety study relating to liposomal CBD, no patient experienced dangerous effects on kidney function, blood sugar levels, liver function or fluid balance and electrolyte. People whose blood measures ranged from low to high were not affected by this kind of CBD oil. Surprisingly, people with high glucose levels in their body were able to bring it back to normal after taking liposomal CBD treatment for a month. Although the results are based on a small population, it was concluded that liposomal CBD is safe to use.

CBD delivery systems are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Traditional products such as oral tinctures, oils, and gummies are now being outpaced by newer technologies, such as nano-emulsified CBD. Nanoemulsions are microscopic molecules that are even smaller and, at least theoretically, more efficient than liposomes. Smaller molecules could mean higher absorption because there is a larger surface area interacting with the body’s enzymes and tissues.

A 2017 review published in Pharmaceutics found that liposomes appeared safe and allowed for greater control, enhanced bioavailability, and limited toxicity.

Is liposomal CBD better than other types of CBD?

Liposomal products may help CBD bypass the digestive system where the bioactive compounds of CBD are broken down or rejected by the body. In a recent pilot study published in the American Journal of Endocannabinoid Medicine, CBD was detected in the blood of all 15 patients who ingested liposomal CBD after an hour. In contrast, standard CBD was only found in 40% of patients after the same time.

“A liposome is basically a bubble that is used to package a drug,” says Dr. Adie Rae, a neuroscientist and medicinal cannabis expert. “Liposomes are typically made using materials called phospholipids, which are the exact same kind of molecules that comprise our bodies’ cell membranes.” Phospholipids can sometimes aid direct drug absorption or protect the drug from being broken down in the digestive tract.

While the liposomal packaging system could be harmless in one drug context, it could be toxic in another context. “Any novel drug formula, including liposomal or nanoencapsulation of CBD, should be studied for safety and efficacy prior to being rolled out onto the market,” Dr. Rae advises. “I would not recommend using a liposomal CBD formula that was not accompanied by published safety data. The risk could be small, but it’s not a risk I’d personally be willing to take.”

Liposomal CBD improves the bioavailability of the cannabinoid by surrounding it with a substance that the body can more easily absorb. This novel format appears to increase CBD’s bioavailability, so its potential benefits can be more effectively delivered and distributed.

Liposomal Multivitamin with CBD is ideal as a replacement for CBD oil. With the added benefit of essential vitamins, liposomes provide enhanced absorption.

Each bottle of RQS Liposomal Multivitamin with CBD contains 150ml of liquid and 90mg of CBD.

Liposomes are liquid molecules that act as a protective bubble in which essential ingredients, in this case, CBD and multivitamins, can be encapsulated. All active ingredients are shielded from being broken down by the enzymes in our digestive system. As a result, they can be more easily absorbed, reaching our bloodstream significantly faster.

Liposomal Multivitamin with CBD: Superior Absorption Meets Essential Vitamins

Vitamins are essential because they are unable to be produced endogenously by our bodies and are obtained through what we eat. The broad range of vitamins in our multivitamin formula provides additional support to a healthy diet. Our multivitamin blend includes vitamin A, B, D and E alongside CBD, and several terpenes and flavonoids.

Our full-spectrum CBD formula now includes a diverse selection of multivitamins. This unique blend, featuring liposomes and several key vitamins, allows for all active ingredients to be absorbed not only at a faster rate but with even greater efficacy.
