The Truth About Nano CBD
REASON #1 – Full Spectrum CBD is Much Better than CBD Isolate. But Nano-CBD is Isolate!
Full Spectrum CBD contains all the cannabinoids found in the hemp or cannabis plant but ‘isolate’ contains just one. Most observers strongly believe that all of the cannabinoids working together produce a so-called ‘entourage’ effect. You don’t get this when taking one isolated cannabinoid. It is possible CBD isolate is entirely useless, so why bother.
Nano-CBD is CBD isolate so…there is no entourage effect from it. Therefore it is likely far inferior to good old regular full spectrum CBD.
REASON #2 – No Evidence ‘Nano’ Is Better
In an attempt to differentiate themselves from competitors, many companies are promoting the myth that Nano CBD is better absorbed in the bloodstream that regular CBD. The problem with that claim is that there is zero evidence to support it.
As various companies hyping nano-CBD keep repeating the myth, the concept takes on the aura of fact, but it is just a bunch of hype. Marketing hype does not become fact just because it gets repeated time and time again. Don’t fall for it.
REASON #3 – Nano Means Small … So what!
The term ‘nano’ sounds fancy and gives things the aura of scientifically advanced but not so fast. Nano simply means small with the idea that small gets better absorbed but again there is zero evidence to support this claim.
REASON #4 – A Better Term for Nano CBD May Be Emulsified CBD
The term Nano-CBD is being somewhat improperly used. A better term would be ‘nano-emulsified’ of just ‘emulsified.’ So, nano-cbd is more like what is done to salad dressing in order to, for instance, get the vinegar and oil to mix. And it is anybody’s guess what emulsification does to the properties of the CBD molecule. We don’t know but maybe the potentially beneficial properties of the CBD are just plain destroyed when it is emulsified.
REASON #5 – The Emulsification Process of Nano CBD May Destroy The CBD
This emulsification process is used in the much-hyped CBD water products. It has been reported that a number of third parties have tested a number of CBD water products and found that most have zero or negligible amounts of detectable CBD detectable, as noted in the Ganjapreneur article titled “Murky waters: how ‘nano’ CBD misleads consumers.” A study conducted by Leafly tested 47 different discovered that CBD nano water was “the least reliable form factor” and that NONE of the four water products tested delivered the amount of CBD as advertised within a 20 percent margin.
REASON #6 – The Biggest Reason to Avoid Nano CBD is Added Chemical!
Nano-CBD products are often manufactured with chemicals that consumers may want to avoid
One chemical commonly used is ‘propylene glycol’, an additive for shelf-stable emulsified products. ‘Propylene Glycol’ is also known as PEG and is an ingredient that was labeled as “Allergen of the Year” by the American Contact Dermatitis Society. The small drops of nano-CBD oil are coated with this stuff or other chemicals.
