Why is liposomal CBD more effective than traditional CBD?
There is growing enthusiasm about the health benefits of CBD. This natural oil, which the body recognises as innate, can provide powerful support for the body’s own immune system. Naturally, this effect is greater when the oil is absorbed more efficiently by the body, and the use of liposomes has been shown to have several advantages in this regard.
What does CBD do?
CBD stands for cannabidiol, a therapeutic substance found in cannabis (‘weed’). It has no psychoactive effect: you cannot get ‘high’ on CBD. Recent research has shown that the human body has an intrinsic endocannabinoid system that regulates a number of functions, including pain. CBD can have a beneficial effect on this system, reducing the intensity of pain in cases where other analgesics fail to do so. Other promising research has shown that CBD can benefit those living with inflammatory conditions, epilepsy, fibromyalgia, neural degeneration and Parkinson’s disease.
The liposome casing is a cell membrane that encloses the bioactive CBD. Because the body regards the cell membrane as a normal cell, it can pass undamaged through the intestinal wall and is absorbed by the body in its entirety. In other words, the biological availability and targeted delivery of liposomal CBD is greatly improved in comparison to non-liposomal CBD. What’s more, the active substance in liposomal CBD is so stable that no viscosity-increasing agents need to be added, meaning that it can be delivered in the purest possible form.
